    Todd may be a gifted gunpla builder, but it seems he could ‘stand’ to put a little more thought into his wordsmithery.

    So what do you guys think of ‘Divers?’ I like seeing custom kits, but I wish we could at least see Sei take on Sekai. ‘Try’ got a lot of hate, but I liked it.

    I’m starting a project to make gunpla based on characters from ‘RWBY’ A 2,000 yen credit would be very useful. Yang could be very bangry without Denial’s head on her Try Burning custom.

    If you’re an anime fan (and who here isn’t?) all this talk of stands will remind you of something else. Get well soon, Todd, so you can stand.

    So the newly-announced Megami Device magical girl looks pretty ridiculous, but I could see people getting it for the effect parts alone.

    Lindsay, I feel I would be derelict in my duty if I did not point out that you had Roadrunner’s gun backwards, in the pictures in this post too. I should also point out that the armour for both parts of the Megami Device sets can be combined for a ‘Full Armour Mode.’

    My contribution aside, I think that 2,000 yen credit would make a nice birthday gift, yes?

    SOL Hornet was a fun build for me, comparable with Baselard.

    Bandai’s heard fans’ pleas for a Gunpla Girl based on Rinko Iori… but they’ve done something very weird with her: it’s the Loheng-rinko. Yes, Rinko has been given a ‘Gundam SEED’ treatment: She’s in Captain Murrue Ramius’s uniform, with armour making her resemble the ‘Archangel.’ I guess it makes a strange kind of sense: Rau’s crew did refer to ‘Archangel’ as ‘the Legged Ship,’ and Bandai is using Rinko’s legs for the catapult / Lohengrin ‘legs. (thus also the punny name, on which I believe the whole model choice was made).’ Why the ‘Archangel,’ though? Perhaps because Sei’s gunpla has been based on the Strike, and Archangel is Strike’s mothership. Rinko IS Sei’s mother. I still think it’s weird seeing Archangel’s…[Read more]

    Could you imagine if the trailer’s sample is all we see of RX-78-02 in ‘Ready Player One?’

    Having built SOL Hornet I can say that Megami Device is fairly sturdy, and a comparable build experience to FA Girl’s Baselard (and less complex than Innocentia). Its gimmick is that they are designed as pairs where you can create a Full Armour Mode by putting all of one’s arms and armour on the other. It’s a fairly mercenary merchandising strategy, as you would need 2 of each to create all the Full Armours.

    I’m getting some things from the Winter Sale, but I was hoping for a wider gunpla selection.

    Will you cover the FA Girl White Tiger and the Megami Device ASRA duo when they come out?

    Honestly, I like the look of Lupus more than Rex, although… if they had had a canine transformation for it, the longer limbs would have worked better for it. An idea for a custom build, perhaps?

    Just go for it. Follow the directions as best you can. RGs do have tiny parts, and are more fragile than HGs. MGs actually have larger parts, so in some ways they’re easier to build — although I’ve only built one, the Gundam the Origin.

    Would you get the Cherudim Heavy Weapons or the Cherudim Saga? Decisions, decisions. Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to the Masterpiece Dinobot, except he’s twice as expensive as Optimus Primal.

    The M9 is an OK Arm Slave, but of course I favour the Arbalest. Venom’s ponytail also made it kind of fun. We never saw the Laevatein in action, though. I hope to see it in the new series.

    Zaku can take all these Zeong pun names Waffing Ball the way to the bank.

    Arm Slaves are much smaller than Mobile Suits, which in turn are much smaller than ‘Pacific Rim’s’ Jaegers.

Things are looking bright this week with a look at the all new and very glossy High-Resolution Wing Gundam Zero EW! Lindsay and the Todd also show off the latest and greatest offerings that are in stock from […] https://youtu.be/p4HLEOqNv_M View

    Hi-Res is a weird line since it’s detailed but fragile. Not to put it down for the possibilities, since there have only been two so far. Plenty of room to learn. On my budget, the most I can afford are MGs, and then not many of them.

    My favourite of the 3 HGs based on the Reborns Gundam is the 1.5 Gundam, since it’s straightforward, and looks good at all angles. Reversible looks very strange in Tank Mode from any angle but the front.

    The axe from the Ballistic Weapons set is supposed to have beams. Guess we’ll have to paint them. The set is designed for the Origin Zaku II, but it duplicates some parts from the Reversible. I’m interested to see what people do with it.

    Baselard is popular. Innocentia has great articulation, but no weapons on her own.

    Welcome back!

    After seeing ‘Winning Fumina,’ which other characters from the franchise do you guys think should be made into Gunpla Girls? Lots of people seem to want a Shia Qan[t] Gunpla Girl, but let’s not forget there’s more than just ‘Build Fighters’ to the ‘Gundam’ franchise.

    Also, if Bandai was to make model/figure hybrids to compete with Kotobukiya, which of their departments do you think would be best-suited to take on the project?

    ‘Gundam 00′ could use some MG ver Ka releases. Particularly the secondary and tertiary suits. I also wonder if we’ll ever see a kit of the ELS Qan[t]. And Final Mission versions of the Meisters’ gundams.

    Lindsay, please don’t forget to cover the rest of the fantastic ARTICULATION on the kits you build. I have my own FA Girl Baselard waiting to be built — after I complete my entry for the GBWC 2017 Canada, perhaps? I had to paint Innocentia to make her presentable (you can check out my review on YouTube (shameless plug) if you like). I can also recommend Kotobukya’s MSG Heavy Weapons Gun Blade Lance, for FA Girls and 1/144 gunpla.

    Only a few designs appeal to me. I have the EX Model Eternal, which I got on-sale from HLJ, and have reviewed on YT. I also plan on getting the EX Model Albion. I continue to hope Bandai will put out an affordable Ptolemaios II or Ptolemaios II Kai (Gundam 00, season 2 and movie vers).
