    • RNG Gods I beseech you! Let me get picked or something lol

    • WIN

    • Didn’t get a chance to cop the MODEROID one, hop I win this one!

    • Gotta love zero two 🙂

    • Wow! 2 for the price of 1! I loved the anime more than I expected to, in fact it pretty much re-invigorated my love for anime! I really want to get these!! XD

    • Man, I really enjoyed Darlng in the Franxx as a whole. I was really lloking forward to it when it was first announced. Been a fan of studio TRIGGER since they first worked on Gurren Lagann back in Gainax.

    • Do Gotenks next.

    • Gotta love that girl :3❤

    • I’m hoping to win that figure. I loved Zero Two in the show

    • I want those !

    • I really loved the unique designs of the Franxx in the show, Strelizia in particular. Here’s hoping I win!

    • I preordered Zero Two, so I hope that I have a chance to win this giveaway. And as always, GREAT REVIEW! 😀

    • Loved the first half of the show. drama, mystery and good mech on monster action. second half, good ideas bad execution.

    • I wasn’t aware of this anime. Now I have to check it out. I’d love to have these 2 the mech looks great and so does the girl. I’d definitely put the fangs faceplate on! Looks really cool.

    • drooling in excitement

    • I really enjoyed the anime, made me love Zero Two so much 🙂 Might have to pick up these figures once I get paid ^_^ Awesome figures!

    • I really like Strelizia Robot spirit but the Zero Two expression face make me a little freak out hahaa but already pre-order the nendoroid Zero Two and i wish i can get the SHFigure and Robot spirit from u guys. Thanks for the review , really interesting pose from Lindsay XD

    • Great. Thank you ^_^

    • Thanks for showing the figures together. I’ve watched the first half of the series, now I need to watch the rest. Hope I win this set!

    • Looks like your name is black, which means you haven’t fully registered on our blog yet.
      Be sure to get that name orange, or you can’t enter the giveaway!

      • Thank you for letting me know! I’d delete my old comment but I can’t seem to… >.<

    • Stelizia has a pretty cool and unique design! I wish Bandai’s figure could transform into the lion-like mode though.
      (Also, be sure to fully register so that your name turns orange, or you can’t enter the giveaway!)

      • I also went and registered but my name does not turn orange. 🙁
        Well, I never had any good luck on raffles or giveaways all my life. So not a big problem. Thanks for help anyway. ^_^

    • reportin in.

    • Can’t wait till the semester is over so I can finally take the ttime to watch the series 😥

    • I’m getting the Moderoid Strelitzia so this would be a great compainion piece.

      Also, can we have a peek at that Kamen Rider figure I saw flashing by?

    • I have never seen this anime, before sadly to say lol. What I do know is, I love me some sexy anime figures and some badass mechs!! You could never go wrong with that, hope to get lucky this time!! ✌😂

    • Great looking pair of figures, fingers crossed I win.

    • waifu + robo waifu = heaven

    • I very much enjoyed the mecha designs of the show, and imo 02 was an interesting character. Would love to add these to the collection.

    • People like grapes

    • I really like the unique designs of the Franxx in the show, form the standard Super Robot and gundam designs

    • zero two best waifu??

    • Haven’t watched Darling in the Franxx, stemming from the controversy around the butt controls. But if you say the story is good I’ll give it chance.

    • Well if I don’t win, she has a really nice spot on my Christmas list.

    • I came around to Darling in the FranXX a bit late into its run, after hearing that the overloaded hype had gone off the rails, and fans turned in the series and its creator for a single episode’s worth of content. And, to my surprise, the series turned out to be a very intriguing extrapolation of youth and puberty, totalitarianism and the burgeoning empathetic and emptional connectivity that is inherent to humanity; Plus, it had kick as mecha battles!

      I LOVE Zero Two, and would absolutely love and ADORE, winning this figure set!

      • I wish there was an edit button, cuz that was supoosed to read:

    • Ah hell I forgot to log-in before posting. Can someone delete that old comment or something?

    • The mix of skinny limbs and big armour seems weird to me. Maybe I’ve just been used to a certain design aesthetic for so long: Gundam’s MS’s, Code Geass’s Knightmare Frames, and Full Metal Panic’s Arm Slaves all have more appealing appearances for different reasons.

    • I still asking myself, why zero two is more expensive?

    • Well, I saw this with my girlfriend, and while we both enjoyed, it was like a cliff. It was rough start, with an appointment amazing medium episodes but ended abruptly and in a rushed way. Still, this is one of the cases where I really want to win so my wallet doesn’t have to suffer.

    • I really like the nostalgia and “feels” that these figures gave to me once I saw them here. God please let me win this one!

    • Neat figure. Going to try to watch this anime.

    • ZERO TSUU!…..DARULIN!……ZERO TSUUU……DARULIN!

    • Tigger Blood!

    • Loved this anime bit the last few episodes just felt lackluster compared to the rest of the show

    • I only get possible figures. These would be great in my collection.

    • I think we can all agree that the anime ended at episode 15, right guys? Right?!

      • I mean, let’s be real, the anime was great overall, but the mid-section was by far the best part!
        (Also, it looks like your username is black which means you haven’t completed registration on hobbylink.tv. Please be sure to finish registering, as we are unable to contact unregistered users, and therefore can’t count them as entries in the giveaway.)

    • Lances are my favorite weapon. i wish some robots would actually get a mount to properly use them. i guess the kimaris trooper kind of counts on that front

    • I love how the anime start but hate it by the end, especially the space travel and end battle.

    • I know almost nothing about this series, but I have to say that’s quite an unique design for a mecha. I like it!

      • In the series, it actually transforms into a lion-like mecha and I’m sad that no company (looking at you Bandai) has attempted a transformable mecha yet. xD

    • It’s so cool they went out of their way to make them a proper set, they make a lovely display

    • i didnt like the anime but this figure is pretty neet

    • Good anime, a little depressing but 02 was awsome.

    • Ichigo is still best waifu.

    • Although a bit weird looking, the mecha looks cool as well

    • Robot Damashii’s Strelitzia looks gorgeous even though I’m waiting for Moderoid Strelitzia just to build it

    • What, I actually thought it started out weak, and it became well… kinda better at the end because you actually got to know why they were fighting. Though, if you’ve seen EVA, then you pretty much could assume what they were going for.

      I’m also a sub purist and can’t stand dub, so it always throws me off when I see anime events in the west bring in the voice actor of “this and that” character, cause it’s usually not the Japanese VA.

    • The mech design is definitely different than what I usually go for, but it’s interesting. I think the pilot design is awesome, though. I might have to check this show out.

    • Ooooooo I wonder how Bandai’s Streliza will compare against Good Smile’s Streliza.

    • Neat set – don’t currently have any SH Figuarts, these would be a great start.

    • I’m one of the few people who liked darling in the Franxx the how way through. The last episode even made me cry.

    • Darling in the Franxx Is the next series in my list, love weird mecha designs and the weird pilot interfaces, so, I’m excited

    • The show may have ended up going a bit to far off the deep end of crazy for me, but I can’t deny that the designs for both the franxx and Zero two are top tier and super unique. These figures look great and definitely show off the best parts of the show. I would love to add these two to my collection!

    • Hm nice figure, They should release the male pilot, and combine form the whole cockpit. that will be sweet ><

    • I WANT ZERO TWO PLEASE I LOVE YOU HOBBY LINK.TV

    • While I’m not happy with the way the show ended up, I do love the designs this show introduced. I did have fun watching it, it was one of those journeys, not the destination.

    • I love the first half of the show and the character designs, especially zero two. I really want it for my collection.

    • zero two!!!!!! if I knew how to do/ could do a love emoji I would do it.

    • I’ve never finished watching the show, but these figures look better than expected!

    • Are you my Darling ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~?????????

    • Look good.

    • this would a perfect start to collect figures

    • Will I? Could it be? Is it possible?!

      I haven’t seen this anime but your video got me curious. Thanks for another nice giveaway guys.

      P.S. Nice posing for 10 mins, Lindsay!

    • Will your lips taste the kiss of death?

      I love this anime! Zero Two’s probably one of the best waifus in recent memory, and I loved her interactions with Hiro along with her character development. Strelizia’s robot form is reflective of her becoming more human as the series progresses, and both their designs are fantastic.

      Thanks for hosting this giveaway, and here’s hoping! (Sorry, I posted earlier but was unregistered, hopefully this will fix it! Please choose another winner if you happen upon my earlier comment!)

    • Just got the Kill la Kill figma’s, so these would go well with them. Just started watching the series and am liking it thus far, hopeful that the ending is better than the internet seems to think.

      • Kill la Kill is another awesome show! I look forward to anything Studio Trigger puts out.

    • Man, I love the opening to Darling in the Franxx. The character and suit designs are pretty cool (especially 02).
      Too bad the second half misses the landing as hard as it does.

      Good review, keep up the great work.

    • I was thinking about getting a Strelizia figure anyway, but having both together would certainly feel like a more complete set.

    • The anime was pretty good, plenty of memorable moments and an intriguing story.

      I wonder what’s the scale on Strelizia… looks like a 1/144, maybe?

    • 02 was beft waifu of that season and Strelizia was and the other FranXXs were a really cool homage to Eva

    • yey.

    • I know this show gets a lot of mixed reviews..but there is one common ground in saying that the show had some great waifus. These figmas are a must.

    • I agree that most dubs are sub par to the original Japanese voice actors – with the exception of Cowboy Bebop. Cowboy Bebop’s dub is on par – if not better – than the Japanese voice actors.

      And these Darling in the FranXX figures look good too…

      • I love the Cowboy Bebop dub, too!
        There are definitely some good dubs out there. My opinion tends to lean towards the language I heard the show in first (which is typically Japanese nowadays).

    • i want those!!!! loved that anime

    • Great anime with a bad ending, still Zero Two is best girl

    • looks good those figure but the quality seems not that great. what you get is what you paid

    • Team Zero Two FTW!

      • Heck yeah! I’m sure she’ll be in the running for best waifu of 2018
        (Also, it looks like your username is black which means you haven’t completed registration on hobbylink.tv. Please be sure to finish registering, as we are unable to contact unregistered users, and therefore can’t count them as entries in the giveaway.)

    • I was also a little disappointed in the direction they took the show but still really love the characters, mech designs, and opening song! Darling in the FranXX was one hell of a ride.

    • Cool that interesting

    • I never win anything on this channel

    • I enjoyed the show quite a bit, great characters and strange mech desings, but all quite nice in the end. Best part about the show was the opening without a doubt

    • I liked the warehouse shot where you showed off the boxes of those other Bandai figures; that Formania gundam bust is huge!

    • I really liked how the show started, and 02 herself, but forgot to finish the series and was told it really dropped off towards the end. Maybe I’ll get to finishing the series one day.

    • It was a great series overall, I do agree that it started strong, despite a slow build up, but it does kind of peter out towards the end. The character development was very good. Lots of referencing other anime plots, Neon Genesis, Gurenn Lagann, some others. Hopefully we get the other Franxx suits at some point, I like Delphinium, and the standard Franxx.

    • I only watch the first few episodes but I really enjoy the character designs.

      It’s cool that the boxes match even though one is S.H.Figuarts and the other Robot Damashii.

    • Awesome review of both Zero Two and mecha.

    • I’ve never seen this series, I wonder if it’s any good.

    • Angie replied 1 week ago

      I am Ready to win

    • Seiten Guren and that Halloween Miku poster hype

    • Zero Two has some funny facial expressions to work with, but strelizia really steals the show there. Very cool.

    • I pre ordered the Strelizia months ago, it would be super awesome to have the Zero Two to go with it!

    • I am Ready to lose

    • I feel like Darling in the Franxx gets way too much hate. I personally dig it.

    • Watching cool anime today, Reincarnated as a Slime and Skull Face Bookseller. Hope they get figures although, would a new slime be different than a Dragon Quest slime?

    • Zero Two rocks. I hope we get more stories with her.

    • Darling in the Franxx is not your typical anime..it has some unique aspects in their mech design.
      As a fan on collecting weird mech design, this will be a perfect fit for my collection.

      • It’s just too bad that Bandai didn’t go all the way and make Strelizia transformable between lion mode and normal mode. D’:

    • Well, I’m a newbie on this platform, but I can show you that I’m a big fan of Zero Two, I have lots of drawings on it, I wish I could share it with you here! I would like to win the raffle because I miss she in the anime … I really want to win this big raffle and even more if it’s thanks to HobbyLink.tv. If I win these figures, I promise to send picture of my drawings! A hug from Spain <3

    • There are lots of great anime out there, so I hope you continue watching and find new gems to add to that favorites list!

    • 002 in name, #1 in my heart.

    • I’m glad my friend dragged in me into this fun ride of an anime. Yeah, second half was kinda sloppy, but it was still an enjoyable show.

      What made it more enjoyable for me is when I was surprised to find out that Zero Two was voiced by Haruka Tomatsu.

    • zero + two=two figures of Zero Two for me! xD

    • Darlings, I am the Freddie Mercury of the anime world, and I feel very identified with Zero Two, we are both two queens, I the queen of the otaku humans and she the queen of the parasites. xD

    • Love Toy Tengoku and Darling in the Franxx!

    • I wanted to show some pictures from Darling in the Franxx to my friends when they unintentionally brought Zero Two model as a placeholder for an avatar to be used in our video… once they saw “unfiltered” google search they didn’t speak to me for awhile 😀

    • Oh, man I love when you do Evangelion giveaways!! Oh, wait!! Hahaha, nevermind, the double figure dinamic in this, it’s just awesome, having both in display must be badass looking.

    • Robo replied 5 days ago

      Good review, love the mech design in DitF!

    • While the anime wasn’t my favourite that season, I really like those designs.

    • I love her and I’m dying to have her

    • Zero 2 is <3

    • Oh man, I love the figure!

    • Love this figure and love zero two

    • Reiarm replied 3 days ago

      Eyyy a mecha anime, so how realistic the cockpit?
      It’s too realistic that they need style to pilot it 😏

      I wish bandai make model kit of strelizia, it’ll be cool if they do it

    • O2 is waifu maybe I’ll win her toy too on toy tengoku

    • Zero two is Waifu, and Strelizia is the perfect companion to display her.

    • If I win the figures, I promise to give Zero Two a “kiss of death” as the opening song says. :M

    • I love her! not the same with the anime, but would love to have one uwu

    • 02 is love, 02 is life. I want her owo

    • I like to much 02, very cool figure!!

    • Wish I could win this 02

    • I loved this anime in special the deigns of theirs mechas, which are very colourful and are seen like a girls, a fact that make that robot to look more happy and cool.

    • With the main site does it just have one server in japan since connection time from north america is quite long.

    • win!

    • I’d like to see Revive version of Rick Dias and ZZ Gundam to complete Zeta AEUG collection 🙂

    • That Mechagodzilla is such a labour of love, fantastic job Scott! I wish I had that kind of patience when building my kits, I only go as far as doing panel lines! XD

    • That mecha Godzilla looks great, nice build Boss.

    • That flesh colored pouch on Naruto’s butt looks a bit weird.

    • Great. Thank you ^_^

    • Aoshima really went all out with the Mechagodzilla and made it look great. I’m loving that fully articulated tail.

      And those were some nice shots in and around the HLJ warehouse with Naruto. 😀

    • I really love the figure-rise standard series. I have a SSJ Goku and a final form Frieza. They are nicely poseable, can recreate some classic fighting scenes.

    • ravioli ravioli give me the prizeioli

    • sasuke next

    • Great show guys! that photo of naruto sideways stuck to that metal beem is epic

    • When is the next sales? could we have more kits be on the sales this time?Thanks !

    • Hi guys!!
      Great episode once again, will you be stocking/distributing Banpresto figures anytime soon? They have so many great figures especially from My Hero Academia but they do not ship to countries outside of US, Europe and Asia. It would be awesome to buy the figures directly from you guys instead of paying crazy amounts for after market items.

    • Good to see Mecha G get some love. After his recent cameo in Ready Player 1 i’am ready for some new mecha builds. My original kit version from the 1974 film is pretty cool (and still his best appearance on film in think) is about high grade scale so I hope we get a run off larger models, maybe a clear version would be cool too.

    • Looking forward to a hopefully inevitable Kakashi Figure-rise. The Coolest Ninja Always.

    • Now I’m really curious about those aoshima kits. Mecha godzilla looks great, looking forward to see it with a little more love!

    • That looks really nice! I’m a huge fan of Mechagodzilla, need to get a hold of this product!

    • Kaze Bushin no Zilla

    • Looking forward to the enamel wash tutorial!

    • Oh my, I need one of those Mecha Godzilla’s on my shelf like yesterday! Great job on Mecha Godzilla, Scott can’t wait to see the finished product.

    • oh my gawd that mechagodzilla looks so darn cool

    • I like money

    • I picked up the Mecha_Godzilla and it really does look fantastic! Mine is just a straight out-of-the-box build, but still looks great. Yours looks absolutely amazing! Kinda wish I’d done that with mine now!

    • If I’m ever gonna pick up another Godzilla, it’s definitely gonna be a mecha. Always loved it’s designs/redesigns.

    • Wow!!

    • A free 2,000 yen would go toward a good cause, guaranteed.

    • Can never go wrong with Godzilla (except for a few movies)

    • my right ear enjoyed this!

    • We hope to see more of the Figure-rise kits. I myself would love to have one piece kits.

    • kagebunshin no jutsu 10,000x

    • I Might have to try those Figure-Rise kits soon! Would be a nice break from all the mecha.

    • Looking forward to seeing that gold plated Phenex. Also good work on the Mecha Godzilla the paint definitely made a big difference on that. Speaking of figure kits from the comment on today’s video what happened to the Gundam Figurise bust line? I was hoping there would be more of those coming out like for Char, Amuro, and other characters but I haven’t seen any mention of those for quite some time. I want to see if they come out with more figures for the Labo line too, the Fumina figure looks really good.

    • Turn off the auto white balance on that phone. I couldn’t appreciate that paint job cause the video kept changing colors.

    • Great job on the Mecha Godzilla, nothing against Naruto but Mecha G is just amazing

    • Hello, i hope you will be able to get back these old discontinued products on line so we can look at them again ! It is sometimes fun to compare the old and new versions of a kit or figure.. And i was thinking about something.. Must be really cool to work in such a place like HLJ… And i’m sometimes asking myself : What is required to work at HLJ ? And by the way, don’t you have some moments where you don’t even known anymore where to look or what to build because there are just so many cool kits to try all around ??! Must be a hell of a temptation to always try new ones… I bet i would go totally crazy and try to build everything i may could find cool !! (there are just so many of them that looks quit fun to build.. your storage room must look like a gold mine to me !!) Anyway, good continuation, excellent job as usual.

      • Thanks for the comment!

        You can still see discontinued products with some Google-fu, but we were seeing a lot of customers getting confused about long-gone items thinking that we could still stock them, or that they could order them. To clear up that confusion we removed the ability to find them directly through the site search results. Protip: if you start a search in Google with “site:hlj.com” you’ll be able to search absolutely everything. If it doesn’t turn up there, then the page probably doesn’t exist.

        HLJ is a pretty cool place to work at, but like any workplace, it is a workplace and comes with all your typical office-y work. Job requirements really vary depending on the job — we have a lot of different departments here, from customer service, to logistics, to marketing, and plenty more. 🙂

    • Magnets on the feet. So simple and yet so brilliant! It’s going to be a very cool display when there are more characters in the Naruto line.

    • Excellent episode. Todd’s shirt reminded me of EVA 01 from Neon Genesys Evangelion. Not sure why!!

    • Ok. The magnetic feet on the Naruto figure is really nice.

    • wow … we almost there for the 300 ep at the end of the year.
      or would it open up the new year ? hummmmm exciting either way.
      best wishes
      also that naruto figure is a lil creepy to be honest XD

    • That mecha Godzilla was fantastic! Great work on the silver.

    • I would love to see the “room” and also probably some behind the scenes footage of what is going on in HLJ

    • this is awesome. mecha Godzilla vs naruto. do the ninetail shakra thingy. 😂😂😂

    • I wonder, will bandai implement rubber like mechagodzilla on gundam kit?

    • Awesome review on Figure Rise Naruto.

    • I actually still use the advance search to browse current kits as well.
      Maybe adding an “advanced filter” to show discontinued kits would help with the databased performance?

    • Hope someday in the future, there will be action figure with invisible joint

    • Thanks for your videos. Keep going on!

    • awwww i love advance search. Btw looking forward to the model vault video ^^

    • Magnets… wow… very nice and simple gimmick… love it!

    • That MechaGodzilla is so cool!!

    • One thing always made me loose immersion with the story for the MechaGodzilla inclusion; why put all the resources into building the one massive mech, why not make 10+ (economy of scale) Gundam sized mechs to fight with? This allows multiple attack vectors and numerous targets to defend against. I know why it was done from the film making perspective, the difficulty of coordinating the actors to look at the smaller/larger target not physically there, and compositing the images would make for a very expensive film.

    • Love the look of the Mechagodzilla but, as a newbie to kits, I’m worried about the mistakes in the instructions and interested in what paint you used to make him good and shiny. Do you have any details of both please?

    • Mechagodzilla looks amazing, but I bet it could be better with magnets.

    • Thats mechagodzilla is pretty big, hope the colour would be more metallic. Boruto dad also looks fun to build and play, love that magnet effect

    • I really like the Figure-Rise Standard Naruto model kit.
      I hope to see Bandai expand upon this series.

    • yay i won!!!

    • With great interest I listened to Scotts reasons for the missing avanced seach. Would this not be a good time to re-establish a portal to the Tanoue Zone? IIRC when the world …oops, I mean HLJ… was still young, the Tanoue Zone was a dimension to which all the items were banned which were no longer in production. I’m sure this would not affect the sales item database, as the Tanoue Zone has already been a database on its own back then.

    • MECHA GODZILLA IS 😍😍😍😍😍

    • ekcc replied 1 month ago

      I still like gundam more. but this is a nice kit but it looks so busy

    • Oh sugar snap peas!!! This looks awesome!

    • pt25 replied 1 month ago

      4th to comment! haha. Wish the mazinger could have a bit more articulation. especially if its bandai making it… but either way it does look very cool (including the box art)!

    • Question: Does the new HLJ site retain an Advanced Search function? Or has that been axed?

    • So, I used to want the store credit to get one of my favorite kits of all the time, the HG Hy-gogg, but my girlfriend surprised me with one right out of nowhere, so it would be pretty nice to win so I can get her something cute for her.

    • Love to see that Bandai has been experimenting with new stuffs like Pacific Rims, Mazinger, Dragon Ball and Naruto kits, cant wait to see whats coming next.

    • After watching this week’s episode, I really am interested in the Figure Rise Standard Uzumaki Naruto and also those HG Mazinger kits. I’ve never seen any of the Mazinger shows but the model kits look pretty cool and even though it’s an HG, the model kits look amazing.

    • BNuts replied 1 month ago

      I shall make a prediction: Bandai’s hottest-selling kit of 2019 shall be the ‘Figure-rise Standard Ayame.’

      Especially if they fix the freaky eye problem that the Gunpla Girls have had since ‘Super Fumina.’

    • Great. Thank you ^_^

    • Great looking RE Jagd Doga! I’ve been waiting for an MG version for like foreeeeeever…. hope we get one eventually!
      And welcome back Ardith! Such a wealth of old school Robo knowledge, hope to see you back again soon!

    • I’m also a fan of the buildable action figure trend going on right now. It’s a good option for people that cant always afford figma and don’t mind putting a little extra work in.

    • Man, that Great Mazinger looks…. wll… GREAT!

    • I’m still waiting for PG 00 Qan[T]

    • hmm might need to get that godzilla if it is as good as the price would make you think it should be

    • when they said holding hands I thought about the manly for arm in for arm holding hands.
      not the Yaoi kinda holding hands 😀

    • jeel replied 1 month ago

      win!

    • Gimme The 2000 Yen So I can buy Naruto 🙂
      If i can give some opinion on the new HLJ website. Its hard to see, please put some border for each section.

    • Great show guys! I have a feeling I’ll win that store credit…

    • Ju-Ju replied 1 month ago

      I love the figure-rise series. I have an SSJ Goku and a final form Frieza built and I had so much fun building it and painting it. These kits have great flexibility and can pose great, love them!

    • Hello, as Todd and Scott said… A MACROSS SDF-1 or a VF-1 Valkyrie would be great for a PG !! When you see the new Macross Delta Valkyries (the entirely transformable ones..) that gives some idea of what it could be… And I really think theses two kits could be just awesome !!!
      Ps : Hello to Ardith wich seem to appear regularly (Sorry for the english..) in the show for some times now : So welcome back !
      I’m pretty sure that such knowledge about old animes and robots must be invaluable at hlj !! 😉 And we are still waiting for the return of Boss Builds too !! Hope to see you guys soon ! And, good work for the website.. seems to run fine, but i would agree with Damienhell comment, Borders between sections could help i think.. Good

    • Now that’s a packed episode. All the kits (except Naruto) look really interesting.

    • The giveaways in the videos made me join, but the cool stuff in the videos and my interest in this stuff will keep me here. Here’s hoping for the store credit and if not, well, I’ll at least have free entertainment.

    • Life is too important to be taken seriously

    • It’s nice that Bandai also gives the vintage mechas attention. Now I’m not worry that when I get old the RG RX-78-2 from decades ago is the only kit choice I have.

    • More MG Bandai, pls!!!

    • Might get the PG Seven Sword, but was hoping for something new.

    • I’d love to see an HG Jagd Doga Revive version!

    • Ha, I wish i have watch Mazinger as a kid.

    • Turns out to me that the MG Buster Gundam is a real good kit and very nice to build. Hopefully, I win the 2.000 ¥ credit to build more such great kits!

    • Kura replied 1 month ago

      I like the Great Mazinger but I kind of like the “Standard?” Mazinger Z more.

    • If they made a PG Tallgeese, Scott would buy it for sure.

    • The Jagd Doga is looking very tempting as a solid kit with great colors and panel detail, I just wish I had some extra money lying around to get one.

    • Lot of people really amused by Jagd Doga, but I am more like red, blue, yellow kind of person

    • RE 1/100 is a great line so far. too bad i cant afford them

    • great show guys! love the lak of stickers on the Jagd

    • MECHAGODZILLA looks amazing

    • Those Mazinger kits look absolutely tempting! I’ve never seen any Mazinger shows but the kits look fantastic!

    • I must compliment the level of knowledge regarding products on the recent all Japan hobby show. At times it seemed that Todd and Brian were duelling information in a competitive meta-message knowledge off.
      Your information showdown of facts I think it was a draw but the enthusiasm made me wont to try some military kits maybe one of those cutaway Panther tanks so I thank you both for the great entertainment.

    • I have been looking at that mech Godzilla and was wondering if I should get it now I need to get it.

    • That mecha godzilla looks really good, the announcement of the new PG was a little disappointing for me, I was expecting some zeon love for the PG line! don’t get me wrong Exia is an amazing suit, but If my memory doesn’t fail, the only PG Zeon suit so far is the Zaku II, and that kit has almost 20 years. We need more Zeon kits for the PG line!
      Congratulations, HLJ and Hobbylink TV are awesome!

    • I’m not a Mazinger at all but I will be picking up that RE/100 Jagd Doga for sure.

    • Can’t wait to get my own Jagd Doga! Looks great!

    • Honestly, I am not a fan of mazinger, but 2500 store credit would be nice :p

    • Great show with Captain Scott, Todd and Ardith. I do like the new Mazinger designs from Bandai. I also liked the advanced search of the old site even if it showed Discontinued. Does the new site do something similar especially if some items may or may not come back in stock?

    • I love it with Ardith shows up. The massive Great Mazinger looked so cool!

    • I like the second camera addition but for the big desk shots can you bring it closer? So we can actually see what you are showing us.

    • I would love to see Bandai makes a kit the size of the extra-large one that Ardith brought, even if only with the detail of an HG or RE line

    • Fantastic show guys. Great Mazinger looks, well, great! Always been a huge Mazinger fan, so I’m glad to see their kits reaping the benefits of all the advances Bandai has made with their HG line.

    • great show again! details look great on the mazinger

    • That Mazinger does looks cool. That Naruto does have pretty good gimmick, cant wait to see you guys reviewing it.

    • Looking forward to the Mechagodzilla!

    • Always enjoy watching your episodes, great job on the reviews, that Mazinger is surely a must get.

    • is bandai going to make the other tekkadan mobile suit in 1/100 scale?

    • Wow I been thinking about this kit since pre-orders went up. I love the older ones too. I have a few and my favorite is the Bearrguy kits. For the price and plastic I prefer these over some of the newer mech girl kits. Mainly because I don’t have to keep spare wrist joints around or worry about things randomly falling off if played with. (Posed for pics outside adventures)
