Gunpla TV Special – L.A. Anime Expo 2015

Yes, for the first time Syd and Ryan took their act outside of Japan to Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California. HobbyLink Japan had booths 622 and 624 and Syd and Ryan were there to talk to fellow Gunpla enthusiasts, check out the cosplayers, and conduct group builds for fans and newcomers alike. Our original plan was to make one video a day during the event however (and we really should have realized this sooner) there was so much going on we just couldn’t get it done. So join us now for a review of our experiences at L.A. Anime Expo 2015!

1/60 PG Unicorn Gundam 2 Banshee Norn
1/144 HGBF Kamiki Burning Gundam

Gunpla TV host from the beginning, until 2017. You can keep up with his current gunpla projects at gaijin-gunpla.com.


  1. Glad you guys enjoyed Comic-con! Looks like a blast. ThoseGundamGuys were awesome with their builds at GBWC.

  2. Nice to see you guys again! Been watching your older episodes while waiting for your new post. Glad to hear that you had a great time at the Anime Expo event.

    Wish I had enough time to build my own diorama, but I know it takes a whole lot of time and patience. Plus, I think my skill is still a bit lacking in the diorama-building department. Still experimenting on the best way to tackle my Gunpla kits.

    Btw, you caught some of my work when you stumbled upon the Soda Pop/Ninja Division/ Super Dungeon Explore booth. Hehe!

  3. wish i could’ve attended and meet you guys. another great show as usual!

  4. Great special you guys ๐Ÿ˜€

    Wow those gundam guys really know how to make epic diorama’s…

  5. wish i could’ve gone!!! i’d have brought you guys lunch lol

  6. Looks like you had a blast. I hope to have some fun at Otakon in Baltimore in a week from today. I just hope i don’t spend too much money or lose my mind ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. Hi Syd and Rye…
    I was wondering if you would come to Anime Festival Asia at Indonesia (September) or Singapore (November)???
    Please tell me you will come…

  8. Great show as always, yay Banshee! To Syd did you actually like the Build series Anime? yeah some of the Suits were cool, but for the anime itself what were your thoughts? And for Ryan it may not be Star Wars but what about you, did you watch it? Thoughts?

  9. Still get tons of gunpla builders out there. I am so happy that the community is
    Growing bigger and bigger , I guess anime did quite a good job on expanding the crew.

    Living in Canada , if you guys ever visit Canada, I will definitely come say hi ๐Ÿ™‚

    And yeah, although it’s only July, super curious what will bandai bring us for December ><

  10. idea: customized Bandai Starwars kit of the red beatbox storm trooper in the last segment of Gunpla TV’s Expo Video…

    This needs to happen!!!

    Thanks for sharing some footage of your adventures through the crazy awesomeness of the LA Anime Expo, guys! Looks like it was a pretty epic experience!

  11. It was cool that I got to see both of you guys and thanks for the advice on the L E D once I recover from all the damage from the anime expo (wallet that is) ill get that LED from you for my exia thank for the help

  12. Awesome show!

  13. Great show like always ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. It was awesome that you guys came to Anime Expo and thank you Syd for signing my RG model kit. I was curious on how many other people asked you to sign things other than me

  16. the hest gundam is the one behind the bearguy @ 14:22in the video … XD

  17. Hi Syd and Ryan, love your show!! this is the first time I wrote a comment on your show, keep up the great work. I’ve been building gundam kits since I was a little kid, I’m 28 now and still can’t get enough of gundam and plastic model kits in general. I saw some FramesArms kit on your very first episode and bought four different ones, great little kits, the frame is a bit fragile though. After finding you guys I bought several kits from you so far and the prices you guys have are awesome. Would love to go to comic-con or to Japan at lease once, would be soooo much fun. Again, Love your show, don’t stop putting up episodes. Thanks.
