  • … of Gunpla TV as we know it. Tune in to find out why! Also this week, a special guest makes an appearance to show off the new Megami Device Bullet Knights Launcher, so you won’t want to miss this […]

  • Mecha Gaikotsu is at it again with the Neko Busou series 2 and 3 model kits! Not only does he show you everything you get out of box, he gives us a couple of great examples of the custom mechs you can build with […]

  • Loved it! The human characters were a little weak, but the monster fights were great and that’s all you could really ask for 🙂

  • On this episode, we take a look at the popular Inkling Girls from “Splatoon” and “Splatoon 2”. These figma come with a plethora of accessories and ink effect parts! Join David and Lindsay to take a closer look of […]

  • The boss is back as Scott shows off his build of Bandai’s new slick and simple kit of one of his favorite Kamen Riders, while Dave shows off Frame Arms Girl Hresvelgr with her new bikini-style armor in this […]

    • Win for real 😀

    • Frame Arms Girls and Kamen Rider are always welcome, coz I love them just as much as GunPla! 😀

    • henshin

    • I’m loving the attention to detail on those Kamen Rider kits.

    • Frame Arms Girls look gorgeous! If only Bandai can make Gundam girls with this level of detail and joints. The Build Fighters girls kits are getting closer though.

      • The other great thing about the Frame Arms kits is that they’re all interactive, so you could put together all kinds of crazy machinations from any kits you want. The only thing that tends to bug me is the hard points on their arms, which usually aren’t stable enough to hold anything without flopping (like LBCS: Achillies Mikazuki’s armour plates on her biceps). Oh yeah, and the one thing Bandai has over the Frame Arms Girl kits – double hinged elbows!

    • I like the different type of plastic Bandai uses for there kits, both matt and glossy.

    • Great, thanks!

    • Kamen Rider is one of my favorite shows, Kabuto being one of my favorites!
      “The man who walks the path of heaven, to rule over all” – Souji Tendou/Kamen Rider Kabuto.

    • ayy

    • I’m still waiting for Scott’s tutorial videos

    • The RNG seems to like the comment numbers from 20 to 29.

    • Interesting having Scott and David together on GunplaTV. Will Todd join Lindsay on Toy Tengoku next?

    • I’m waiting for Figure-rise Standard Kamen Rider Rogue – this one looks awesome

    • hahah the scale! Good work as usual David!

    • Hresvelger… Mouthful.
      But great figure, it’s interesting that she’d have a customizable face, I think it’s a cool opportunity they give you to make whatever you wanted (I’m wondering now what people would add)

    • These riders look great. Surprised to see the almost Accel form chest piece on Faiz… Though for me, the ones I’m most excited by are the upcoming W ones with the ability to swap halves. Those look awesome.

    • Not much Gunpla on Gunpla TV this week lol

    • Must keep building

    • Ah, really happy to see people who know their stuff for once! Todd has a bad habit of not doing research (or well, not really caring for the details – probably explains why he can’t be bothered with stickers X’D), so it’s really nice to see people who know the source material. Ah, if I wasn’t stuck here in the UK, I’d be begging for a job about now, show these guys a thing or two about doing the proper research! …if my Japanese was any good, hahah!

      FYI: Faiz’ chest panels open up for his Axel form, and there should be a way to store those panels on his shoulders (based on photographs of the suit).

    • Faiz’ chest opens up and it becomes shoulder pads when he goes to his Accel Form, in that form he can move very fast similar to Kabuto’s clock up, also his Eyes turns red and his Red stripes turn Silver.
      Hopefully they could make Figure – rise Garo series in the future

    • beetleborgs!!:P

    • Next time record some of the customization, changing the colors of a clear is h helpful.

    • I am wondering, have there ever been any kits on the Ronin Warriors! I loved that show when I was younger and never found anything I liked on them.

    • I’ve had this confusion about my name many times before, hahah.

      The tl;dr of it: Feel free to call me “Kaj” or “Gandhi.”


    • Not really for me, but still some nice looking figures.

    • Can you guys show us the comparison between SHF Kamen Rider and figure-rise Kamen Rider?
      You guys forgot that faiz and Kabuto can clock up. Grandma says.

    • Those Kamen Riders kits are getting more and more tempting.

    • Wow, I didn’t expect that! Thanks for the prize!

      And regarding to this review, even though I have never watched any Kamen Rider series, I love the designs and I collect them in Figuarts form, so maybe this is a good alternative to that.
      And special thanks to Scott for appearing in this episode. Such a cool and energetic boss, anyone can see he loves what he does. And we love him!

    • Bikini armor. Yessss.

    • Man, that takes me back. I used to watch Kamen Rider Black RX when I was a kid.

    • Baachanga kou itta.
      The sun is wonderful, it can make even the dirt shine.

    • These models are certainly excellent, but I would prefer to see new models of gundam. Anyway, this is a great video!)

    • I thought bandai already have a kamen rider model kit before? but that a good choice of kamen rider, the slick body armor style are nice

    • Bandai did a really amazing job making recent kits lately

    • Love the show, and even more episodes like this one, when you guys mix it up a little, love gundams and bandai, but I also love other series and brands, if you eat the same thing everyday, eventually you’ll get bored, and, as awesome as they are, the same happens with gundams.
      Great Job!

    • Love the airbrush, thinking about getting one and giving it a coat of chrome paint for that authentic touch.

    • I love the Hresvelgr series, got the FA Hresvelgr=Ater and FA Girl version of it as well.

    • Seeing the airbrush makes my day.

    • I always read Hresvelgr as Hresvelgirl

    • I do love Gundam but it is not everything. It is nice to see other kits and stuff.

    • Todd, you haven’t given your view of Blue Fin’s policy on GBWC USA qualifying by public vote. I understand if its policy or corporate affiliations with Bandai that influence your ability to discuss this topic subjectively or give honest opinions but it would be in-keeping with the former legacy of Gunpla TV to acknowledge the debacle.

    • even the old mg kamen rider W kits where very good. glad to see they keep getting better

    • My childhood by-passed Kamen Rider along time ago, but I still really enjoyed Scott showing off the figures and talking about the series.

  • We’re throwing on our dance shoes for this next review staring Ren Amamiya (Protagonist) and Morgana from “Persona 5: Dancing Star Night”! This new addition to the ARTFX J lineup is full of action and style, with […]

  • During Golden Week, and beyond, folks who shipped their orders from HobbyLink Japan got a special surprise in their packages: a helmet paper craft that could be used to enter our photo contest! The rules were […]

  • In my unboxing post, I talked about Gundam Markers and how we’re throwing the stickers out for this build to get a better completed model than we have before with the Pokemon plamo kits.

    Before I started my […]

  • I’m gonna be honest with you. I don’t know what a Mega Charizard is, but I really like the color scheme this guy has going.
    Mega Charizard got its own plamo kit in 2014. I’ve build a few other Charizard kits […]

  • From the Soukou Musume RPG game series, Kotobukiya releases the first full action figure model kit, the LBCS: Achilles Mikaduki Karina! We take a close-up look at this exciting new kit as well as a quick peek at […]

    • Looking forward to see that Destiny all snapped up!

    • All this talk about the Crossbone just reminds me of how The MG Ver Ka was my first custom paint job. I really need to make some cuts in the cloak to make it look cool.

    • I forgot to comment last week.


    • Great!~ Thank you ^^

    • Are you going to build the GM with the booster parts?

    • The HGCE ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam (Revive Ver) is exciting for fans.
      I was surprised to hear that the effect parts were being included in the kit and not part of a Premium Bandai add on set or a separate “DX Ver”.

      Perhaps this gives us hope that eventually an MG ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam (Ver 2.0) will come out and will include the effect parts?
      But knowing Bandai, they’re still probably going to make the effect parts either a Premium Bandai add on set or a special edition of the kit; kind of like the MG ZGMF-X13A Providence Gundam (G.U.N.D.A.M. Premium Edition) how that version came with the special display stand, effect parts, and that water slide decal for the other MG Seed Remaster series kits.

      I think a lot of people were surprised to hear the RE 1/100 XM-07B Vigna-Ghina II was released as a retail release and not a Premium Bandai.
      It’s basically just a color variant of the RE 1/100 XM-07 Vigna-Ghina, which is pretty much a clear indication there’s a very very high chance that it would be released through Premium Bandai.
      I suppose fans of this mobile suit got lucky this time with this one.

      The SDCS RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type is great, but I’m waiting for the SDCS 00 series.

      The SDCS Silhouette Booster [White] is just an add on set to use in conjunction with the SDCS Cross Silhouette Frame [White]. These are basically the GunPla equivalent of DLC we get with videogames these days but these are an add on set for an add on set.

      Also, Todd… You are absolutely right here.
      I think Bandai Spirits is most likely going to release a majority of the variations as an RG through their Premium Bandai program.
      Given the history of releases thus far with related variations…

      ⭐Master Grade⭐
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X1 “Ver.Ka”
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Full Cloth

      ⭐Master Grade (Premium Bandai)⭐
      XM-X0 Crossbone Gundam X0 “Ver.Ka”
      XM-X2 Crossbone Gundam X2 “Ver.Ka”
      XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X3 “Ver.Ka”

      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1

      ⭐HGUC (Premium Bandai)⭐
      XM-X0 Crossbone Gundam X-0
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X1 Kai
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X1 Custom II
      XM-X2 Crossbone Gundam X2
      XM-X2ex Crossbone Gundam X2 Kai
      XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X3

      ⭐HG (Related)⭐
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Full Cloth Type.GBFT
      XM-X9999 Crossbone Gundam Maoh

      I might have missed some related variations, but I presume my point is made?

      I think it’s safe to presume that Bandai Spirits full intends on making a majority/all of the variations as a Premium Bandai; be it a full kit or an Expansion Unit. This would include:
      XM-X0 Crossbone Gundam X-0
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Full Armor
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 “Patchwork”
      XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai Kai “Skull Heart”
      XM-X2 Crossbone Gundam X-2
      XM-X2ex Crossbone Gundam X-2 Kai
      XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X-3

      On a related note, I wouldn’t mind getting an RG for the XM-X9999 Crossbone Gundam Maoh. I actually am surprised Bandai has not done more with the RG ‘Build’ series; especially given that many of the variations have existing RG kits that Bandai Spirits could use.

    • It’s good to see Danball Senki alive in some form, but wow, I did not expect the change to Kotobukiya and much less to the mecha musume genre.
      Still glad to see em around

    • I’m curious about the moderoid Ariel, promo pics look nice, hope the kit ends up being nice

    • count me in
      how light is that sword

    • Really interested in those effect parts, looking forward to them

    • Love the figure-rise burst effect… Gotta have this one…. Jajaja Nice episode, Glad to see you back every week 🙂

    • I thought Todd would pull out a HG Gundam to compare the size of the RG crossbones like how Zaku does but he pulled out a tape measure to get the exact length!! Thanks for that Todd!

    • Ooh…. really cool looking kit! Shame that glue’s required for certain bits, but otherwise would love to get one!!

    • so even LBX have girls model now …. waiting for my girl optimus prime …. oh for a friend obviously….

    • I began to catch myself thinking that in the new videos, we see a lot of boxes and just one model …

    • New CS Frame 8th MS Team kit 🙂 Looking forward to it.

    • One color hair still looks better.
      Also I’m waiting Drangondress Sofia to review when she will appear. Obviously only DX version.

    • [Buzz puts hand on Woody’s shoulder]
      Mecha musume. Mecha musume everywhere.

    • i always love lbx design, now with a girl added to it BAM sign me up

    • You need to clean up the nub marks for future reviews. The non-reworked GodHand nub-marks look horrible on your photos. Maybe use the 3.peaks MK-02 instead of the GodHand. Also clean them with the Tajima Dora Razar Black 30° spare blades and use the “Master of files” files for the finishing. They can be highly recommended (beside 3M sponges or Micro-Mesh) as they are much better than the Infini Model files/sponges.

    • I wonder which will be the next RG kit

    • Lances are underrated as fantasy weapons. I’m always happy to see a character with a main weapon that’s not a generic sword.

    • The lance and the shield look really cool.

    • I can’t wait to get my own RG Crossbone

    • Looking forward to HG destiny gundam review next.

    • She’s wielding the coolest lance that I’ve ever seen on a kit.

    • Godzilla: king of Monsters was great hope you go see it Todd. I’m just waiting for RG Nu Gundam to be release in August 2019.

    • Looking forward to the next episode. Hope you guys are able to finish the next kits!

    • Any idea what the big Christmas release is going to be this year?

    • Looking forward to the HG Destiny review, and the Vigna Ghina II looks way cooler than the original imo.

    • Looking forward to the Destiny.

    • Another awesome review of SD gundam.

    • It’s cool that there’s such a wide variety of figures nowadays. This style is different.
      Also, cool lance!

    • really cool looking RG kit!

    • LBCS achilles.. you guys notice it? it is based on anime LBX which also has their own kit.
      LBCS will be a new mobile phone game where they convert all of LBX robot into girls. I think they are following frame arms girl

    • Looks like a fun figure to build

    • Now I am curious as to who has the longest lance? I think Bullet Girls Launcher & Lancer may have it at 30+ cm’s

    • great show guys! cant w8 2 see the Destiny Gundam reviewed

  • The latest Ultraman Figure-rise Standard kit is the Suit A version, and it just arrived last week! The highlights of this kit are an LED bulb to light up the chest, and an original weapon designed by Shimizu […]

  • Thanks! That makes sense.

  • The Destiny Gundam from Seed Destiny just arrived as a new HG kit with some pretty cool effect parts! I’m really looking forward to seeing what the Wings of Light look like on the final kit. Let’s jump right […]

    • I like this style of review, need a few more, when is this event usually, been to Akihabara a few times, love shopping there.
      Looking to go to wonderfest some time.
      Got Sinon figure recently from hlj and waiting for Saber to turn up.

      Figure quality continues to improve but also seeing so many fakes on Ebay

  • Welcome back to fumbling through a wood kit with me for the first time! This time, we’re taking a look at building the main structure of cobaanii’s 1/12 Open-Air Bath Made of Cypress! As you can see above, the […]

  • Ooh, vertical box art!
    The Vigna-Ghina II is the latest kit in the RE/100 series, and probably the first one I’ve had the unpleasure of unboxing! There’s a lot of great color separation in these runners, so I’m […]

    • It looks sick, but I can’t believe they still haven’t bothered to fix the shield…

    • Miss Anna, stuff it under your shirt and casually makes your way over to me… While you’re at it, stuff the Flare Asuka and the metal build Evangelion on your person as well. I’ll meet you in the alley by the dumpster. I have my fake ID and passport ready to go. After the switch, I will fake my own demise and dissapear. Jeordy died of a broken anus hoop. He is no more. I now reemerge as a new member, say hello to Horatio Hornblower! Gainax? Never heard of it. I’m all DATTEBAYO and junk 😎

  • Back from holiday and the Shizuoka Hobby Show, the Gunpla TV crew tries to get back into the swing of things. While we were away a number of new kits came in which we take a look at. One in particular that fans […]

  • The dog costumes come in different sizes, but the cat costumes are one size. They should work for most cats, though — the Sailor Moon costumes only go around the neck, and the Dragon Ball costumes go around the neck and front paws. As long as you check your cat’s neck measurement, you should be fine!
