This week we take a break from the usual Bandai releases (except for one SD Freedom) and take a look at some of the latest offerings from Kotobukiya and Good Smile Company! Todd has the Frame Arms Hatsune Miku built as well as the Good Smile Moderoid Shinkalion Hayabusa! Our favorite ginger Dave also joins the show once again with a built kit of his own, the Frame Arms Sylphy!
In this episode:
– Frame Arms Girl Sylphy (Striker)
– Frame Music Girl Hatsune Miku (Secondary Production)
– MODEROID Shinkalion H5 Hayabusa
– SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Freedom Gundam
– 1/144 HGUC Narrative Gundam C-Packs
– Figure-rise Standard Kamen Rider Zi-O
– Figure-rise Standard Kamen Rider 555 (Faiz)
– Figure-rise Standard Kamen Rider Kabuto
Mecha and Miku, what a great combination they make! 😀
The box art for that Narrative Gundam is awesome
Hello, that Narrative Gundam C-Packs indeed looks great.. Really deserves a look into imao.. And also, yes, I think too that it could be a good test to take some of those 30 minute mission kits and try to build them in 30 minutes. I kind of hope they wil be compatible with some of the HG line.. could be some good parts for custom maybe.. 🙂
Figurise Kamen Rider ZI-0 comes with weapon but the SHF version does not. Epic failed. #WOW
Tried Shinkalion, it was meh. Then they announced Miku was joining the cast so I watched it. Then Miku stopped appearing and I lost interest (and again when they had the Evanglion crossover).
Thank you. ^_^
These Goodsmile model kits are really starting to peak my interests. I’ve always liked the whole bullet train into giant robot transformation. The Transformers and Soul of Chogokin lines released figures like this so i might just have to pick that Hayabusa one up 🙂 Also just wanted to say that I love this show and it really made me want to get into building more model kits. It may be the reason why I have a massive box sitting in my room that is filled with over 20 kits from HLJ.com 😉😂.
These CS sets are looking good, I like them better then the regular SD kits.Todd how is the PG kit coming together?
I wanna c the Kamen Rider ZI-0 box
train miku is nice though
And the color for this episode is NEON GREEN!
I would never have thought that I have such a difficult to read nickname 😀
LOL. Random Number Generator Gods. Now I know why I have not won yet. I missed to pray to them.
Hmm… I can’t say Kamen Rider is that childish, considering how often people wind up dying in it >.>
I think Shinkalion is a little… lazy? There’s not especially creative mecha designs.
Always worried about the cost of Kotobukiya kits, they’re always so much more expensive than Gunpla…
Shinkalion looks interesting. It does remind me of Team Bullet Train from 2001 Transformers Robots in Disguise Series. Any chance of a review of the Frame Arm Girls Hand Scale and comparison to the normal size kits?
I guess it’s a good thing neither Sylphy nor Miku have crazy backpacks that would make them more topheavy. What about the recent Megami Device releases?
I personally think Sylphy has a crazy amount of good detail. Her backpack really drew my eye in, as did her hair color.
Awesome show as always, keep up the good work you guy’s 😉👍
Soon, soon… One day I will win that glorious ¥2,000.
Also… Episode 311 on March 11? Conspiracy? Intentional? LOL
What’s this FaceGram? Did Todd create a new social networking site?
Kinda sick of all the Miku merch at this point XD
I wish we could get a new Frame Arm Girls anime.
His name is pronounced ROB-bah
This Miku looks so cute! Anyway, I’m waiting now for my own Narrative Gundam C-Packs.
The Girls are cute and the train could come too! I like it how the three fit together colorwise 🙂
Awesome show as always, keep up the good work!!
While not a particular fan of Miku, it’s good to see the line expanding, gives me hopes of Aegis from persona 3 being part of the line
Man, the Narrative C-Packs would look much better with some thigh and upper arm armor, but still looks like a fun kit to put together
imagine if they did desktop army with actual soldiers……..
Hatzune is the bomb! Want one! Although I’d probably do a custom paint job or change the look of the outfit some just to be different.
Credit where credit is due… To the winner of course.
An M9 with a C-Pack would be nice…
Dave: “Stiff is good, right?”
Syd & Ryan: “That’s what she said.”
I’m just here for the 2000 yen credit. Hehe…
That hayabusa kit looks great. Too bad it’s not completely transformable or that would be awesome
Now we need Mecha Hatsune Miku
Haven’t seen ‘Lost’ myself though some friends tried to get me to watch it. Or GoT for that matter. Don’t think I’m missing out on much.
The train boy looks dope XD
Sadly, Shinkalion doesn’t transform. It will be nice.
That’s exactly what Ithink about Kamen Rider. They look too goofy in the show for my taste, but I love the designs in figure form.
I would love to build those Kamen Rider kits, cause I love Kamen Rider and I would love to display the Kamen Rider Figures with their gear but getting the DX Toys and such on my budget is so hard.
That narrative Gundam looks awesome with all that clear parts.
Colour matching kits this week
Will there be a Powered Natsumi to join the mecha Keroro kit!?
Those trains sure have come a long way since they started.
It would seem that this week’s episode has one theme … Green!!!

A colour coordinated episode. Are there any Gundam in these colours?
Thanks to all at HLJ for the free sweets included in my order, I forgot about the valentines bonus after sixty days in the private warehouse and another sixteen in transit. yum yum
Apologies if this ends up a double- or triple-post. Previous times I’ve tried, I think the URL link was triggering a security feature or the post was too long.
A year before the Tohoku Earthquake, in the town of Otsuchi, a man named Itaru Sasaki set up a phone booth in his garden as a way of talking to and coping with the death of a loved one. After the earthquake, word got around about his phone booth, and people from all over Japan began to show up on his doorstep, asking and needing to use his phone. Called the “wind phone,” this phone booth has been covered by news programs the world over, from NHK to NPR’s This American Life (google “this american life one last thing before i go really long distance”). The phone even has an entry on Google Maps, complete with reviews and everything.
All three are teal turquoise color. Is it a coincidence? 😀
Loving the show

Looking forward to the SD cross silhouette upgrade kit. If only to make me an SD GM.
The idea of the “tooty” face… Seems like an oddly specific kink. No shame, you do you, to each their own and all that.

Also, got to agree with the plastic eyes on the SD kits. First time I saw it slot together on the SD Grandpa, it just put the biggest smile on my face.

Yay! Free stuff, thank you so much! This is why I should only comment at the end!
New to the channel and a long time model builder. Interesting kits you discuss!! May just have to try one out soon…
Thanks for the videos!!
When the bullet train transforms, are the passengers forced into joining the combat? Kit looks nice.
Wow, what kind of train mecha is that?
Another awesome review of Miku. Thanks.
I gotta love the sheer amount of hand options that Kotobukiya gives you for their Frame Arms Girls kits.
Wow that bullet train robot looks so cool, especially the head scope. If only it could transform into train mode (without using excessive parts of course), it would have joined my top favorite mecha models.
Im wating for Dynames
…And Hatsune Miky c:
quite enjoying the minty colored toys this ep
Great show guys. Thanks for the show.
Love to see the 30 min mission kit.
Was the colour theme a choice or just a happy coincidence? I preordered the blue shinkalion on hlj. already bought a tiny version that transforms too!
figurers kits look better than what i remember.
figurerise, not figurers, dumb autocorrect
I forget Miku day every year. 3/9
