• We showed the MG Providence in an unboxing video already so we won’t get into that here — which is good, because Syd and Todd were too busy disagreeing over who would get to present the newest kit from Gundam […]

  • It’s here: The newest MG kit the 1/100 MG Providence Gundam and its Premium Edition counterpart! Let us show you what’s inside!

    Kits featured in this episode:

    – 1/100 MG Providence Gundam
    – 1/100 MG […]

  • Tearing themselves away from their new favorite thing, Syd and Todd switch modes and present the newest Iron-Blooded Orphan kit while oogling the just-released HG Atlas Gundam!

    Don’t forget HobbyLink TV’s […]

    • milk that cow

    • Nice wrist action there Todd hehe.

    • Mhmmmmm

    • I see you’re pretty good at milking Todd. ( Ν‘Β° ΝœΚ– Ν‘Β°)

    • No more GOUF-ing around! Finally shipped my stuff out of the private warehouse for the competition, but I don’t know if my bank account can handle the 1/100 Bael and the RG Amatsu Mina. T_T

    • I want the GOUF and Freedom!!! I would love to get some free stuff. Very new to all of this, started watching the first few episodes and I was hooked. I have seen all episodes up to the 150’s, as well as the most recent 3 episodes. I ordered the MS option set 9 from you guys to turn what will soon be my second kit into the Landman Rodi which I think is one of the coolest mobile suits around. I already have some nice metallic orange for the custom painting required.

    • I’m a recent fan of Gundam, it’s always been been in the background during my youth but I never really delved into it until the release of Gundam IBO. Since then I’ve been thrust into the model kit community, watching a variety of gunpla videos and constantly researching about them. As a result of getting into the franchise late, I was immediately appaled by the Zaku designs, favoring lead mobile suits instead. Until I watched Gundam The Origin Films and picked up an Origin Char’s Zaku II and amongst the kits i’ve purchased its my second favorite. The Origin line seems to have so much quality making me appreciate even the designs I used to dislike. I’m intrigued by several kits in the line and that Gouf is amongst them, I should probably get my hands on one.

    • The kit roll out for March is looking pretty nice, especially the Atlas Gundam.

      Question for the two of you: who are your favourite characters in the Iron Blooded Orphans anime?

    • This episode was a bit empty compared to the others. I guess not all of them can be winners and you guys need some downtime between massive releases. I just want to know what other MGs will come out this year. Hopefully we can get a Stark Jegan a GM-III or the Loto.

    • I actually like the new Kimaris Vidar… not as much as the Vidar tho!

    • I really like the look of the Atlas Gundam, for sure I will get this kit.

    • nice frame arms girl poster

    • I do much prefer the original Kimaris over the Vidar. Though with all the Kimaris forms, it’d be cool to make a combination with the best parts.

    • Can’t wait for the new HGUC Zeta and RG model.

    • hi todd

    • Cannot wait for the new announcement on the new RG number 25

    • This is me commenting, waiting to win

    • ZAKU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • A pleasant start of the flood has come,this is but a trickle of what is to come… My only regret is that I can never get close to the 1/1 scale RX-78-2,a huge blow to my gundam-fanboy-dreams.*cries pathetically*

    • The Design of the Barbatos Lupus Rex is to compensate for Mika’s fighting style of punching and ripping things apart indefinitely. That is why the arms are reinforced so they don’t break apart like what happened in the Hashmal battle. Also the yellow claws were added for this reason. The toes are questionable as I really don’t know why they were given yellow parts but the Tail Blade was added for more versatility and seems to work well with the AV (Alaya Vijnana) System. I really don’t understand why the Rex was given the small shoulder armor, which is why in model form the Barbatos Lupus Tekkadan shoulders work a lot better. Overall for me it’s not a bad design, but a fusion of the original Lupus with the Rex would look a lot cooler in my opinion. Also thank you for presenting the Kimaris Vidar, it looks really sharp and will definitely be getting this kit hopefully soon along with the Bael.

    • LOL I’ve asked three times already but I’ll try one more time. Have you guys decided on anime expo yet? I would love so much to see you guys again.

    • rg unicorn definitely coming.

    • Gouf! Gimme!

    • i want an mg atlas gundam…. and that would be my first thunderblt kit

    • I kinda need that proto gouf in my life… but i dont have any cash right now πŸ˜›

    • any of the two will be nice to have

    • Not a fan of the new kimaris, I thought the Vidar was better looking and totally agree that they’ve taken a step back in design.

    • Only a matter of time for that MG atlas. Great show as always guys.

    • Arigato syd, todd and ryan! May you always build.

    • Bah, everyone knows that the Gouf Custom is the only real Gouf πŸ™‚

    • Looks like Ryan is all about that Atlas.

      I think Vidar and Kimaris Vidar are different enough to get both. But where Vidar is much better as a 1/100, KV probably won’t get one.

    • yeah, new video.

    • Looks like Atlas also has fairly good color separation.

    • Lol gawd imagine doing the milking cow action in a public place xD

      Anyways hate that Kimaris Vidar, so ugly. Super sad that the Vidar was just a stand. Now the Amazing Strike Freedom looks pretty rad, and hope its backpack doesn’t have a ‘bird’ gimmick :/

      Great episode!

    • I cant wait for a MG ver ka Atlas

    • all i see is a kimaris wearing black pants, i prefer trooper, with kimaris vidar’s shields
      jesus yamato give me that freedom please

    • I can’t help but smile and laugh at the Kimaris Vidar’s drill knee. It certainly is something different that we’ve never seen before.

    • Jeeg replied 1 week ago

      Iron Blooded Orphans kits always have something weird in them!
      Probably Bandai is trying to be innovative. They are trying to do something new everytime and they risk a lot!
      For example the feet of the Vidar….did you see them? How weird they are?
      Is it now better a common “old style” foot of a Rx78?
      Sometime is better to not look for something strange at all costs..or you get lots and lots of weird kits like the IBO line or the Reconguista line.

    • Frame Arms Girls are nice.

    • Definitely not todds first time with that action

    • I like the kimarus in all ways and forms but each form always comes with a hamartia that ruins it for me, the first form and it’s onion head, the trooper had butt too big, the vidar had his hacksaw feet, and the kimarus vidar and his pointy toes, it’s like someone at bandaid is trying to mess with me

    • The Kimaris Vidar could use a bigger lance.

    • Ronin replied 1 week ago

      great show. i’d love to have my hands on that gouf. I like those Origin mobile suits.

    • what is your favorite gundam series?

    • I kind of wonder how the hell did all the Kilmari’s designs approved. They all use ph***c weapon that just gets bigger with each new version….
      And about the Kilmaris Vidar being the odd-one in the bunch. I think different color scheme would make it look better.Like the legs in its default Kilmaris color and no yelow accents on the offwhite.

      PS. Cant belive Todd didnt fight for Atlas. Its TODD B. version afterall ^^

    • In comparison, The vidar looks cooler than the Kimaris Vidar, plus in The Kimaris Vidar I think you can split the heels and the toes to make it flat so it can stand in flat surface

    • first kimaris, the kimaris trooper, then vidar, but then we go to the kimaris vidar. really wished to have seen what the vidar trooper looked like. oh well


    • Waiting for the payment notification for the RG Gold Frame. Then it is time to clear out the private warehouse along with the Atlas. Syd “saving” that last sticker sheet for last was a bit mean. Really was hoping there won’t be any yellow stickers for the Atlas.

    • Gouf gouf gouf!
      A nice classic ms

    • Great Show guys Building a SD for the contest wish me luck

    • I personally really love the look of the Kimaris Vidar, to me it looks like a mashup of all of the villains Mika has already faced/killed.

    • Dat gouf!

    • CasLun replied 1 week ago

      i want the freedom

    • popoy replied 1 week ago

      hopefully bandai will make a 1/100 full mechanics on the kimaris vidar. next release this march would be awesome can’t wait for my premium providence please release it faster HLJ. waiting for it. that freedom though. want to have that hg kit..

    • I really prefer the look of the Vidar over the Kimaris Vidar. I think Vidar might be one of the best looking suits on IBO. I think they would have had more success going with a more upgraded Vidar look. The Kimaris Vidar feels a little to Frankenstein monster for me.

    • Joe replied 1 week ago

      Todd reminds me of George McFly in 1955 from Back to the Future.
      I mean that in the nicest way possible.

    • Zyphr replied 1 week ago

      You really gotta love those origin kits. Old mobile suits but updated with modern mechanics.

    • Deliel replied 1 week ago

      Looks like Gali Gali likes chickens…

    • Great episode as always guys! Todd’s face tho when Syd didn’t hand him the Atlas.. PRICELESS! Can’t wait to see the completed model!~

    • Hubyx replied 1 week ago

      Looking forward to see those new releases. Great episode!

    • Can’t wait to see that Amatsu. Wish it was gold played, but hey still looked awesome from the pictures I’ve seen.

    • Quasar replied 1 week ago

      Gouf reminds me of the meme “you dun goofed”. xD

      But back to the 1:1 Unicorn. You guys should totally bring out an HG, MG and PG scale and take a family photo for them once it is ready!

    • The kimaris vidar look cool
      Great video as always

    • fuz replied 1 week ago

      really looking forward to the mg providence hope to get it when it comes out. It will be my third kit not counting the one I built in the late 80’s.

    • Hey Guys, great show as always! I’m looking forward to getting the 1/144 HG Gundam Vual in April which coincides with my Birthday! Great looking kit to add to my IBO Manga Gundam collection. Just a suggestion for your show. How about showing us some other Gundam related products that we could use for our kits like new decals, custom parts and so on. Just to keep us moderate gundam fans up to date on such stuff.

    • Danny replied 1 week ago

      Come on Syd there’s no need to fight over kits just pull Seniority, That’s what they do at my job all the time,lol.

    • Man, Vidar look really good and mean, like I wouldn’t mess with that guy but then it turn into Kimaris, Steppe down in my opinion.
      What do you guys think of the Nintendo Switch?

    • Vidar Kimaris looks great!

    • decops replied 1 week ago

      Vidar is best kimaris

    • nikraf replied 1 week ago

      Looks A cool kit to customize that Vidar Kimaris just didnt really like that feet , need to change it to make it badass

    • planning on buying the gundam Vidar

    • Gouf for the win! Great show as usual. Todd “Mr.” Brown had a good line up…those Kimaris space boots are crazy. Origin Zakus and the Atlas are must haves…thanks, Syd!

    • fjz95 replied 1 week ago

      Just built the Kimaris and now there’s a cooler one

    • not sure how i feel about the kimaris vidar i think its one of those one you need to see in person

    • Looks like they did a fairly decent job with ratio of plastic / stickers for the yellow on the Atlas Gundam. Looking forward to the build to see how it turns out. I would like the Gouf but if somehow I get selected for the Strike Freedom please redo the selection for it. I want nothing to do with Kira Yamato but I do like Rau Le Creuset so looking forward to the MG Providence coming out.

    • That Gundam Bael looks very NICE!!! I will def pick up the 1/100 … not to much of a fan of the 1/144, but 1/100 lots of potential πŸ˜€

    • Can’t wait to get my hands on those new kits. Also now that Bandai Star wars Kits are being sold in the U.S.. are you guys going to bring them back on to the show?

    • Kur0 replied 1 week ago

      i like vidar more than kimaris vidar..

    • Azrel replied 1 week ago

      I wonder why they didn’t incorporated some of the weapons and design of the Vidar to the Kimaris Vidar.

    • This video is great because i liked the evolution of the kimaris. It is also great that the atlas is coming because i enjoy thunderbolt a lot.

    • LeSpaz replied 1 week ago

      I dun goofed didn’t I?

    • Very nice! Strike Freedom would be great

    • Another episode another time i wont win anything.

      Though i am curious about the comparison of both strike freedoms.

    • The kimaris evolution walk

    • Seems like everyone wants the mech, not the pilot.

    • So excited for the MG Providence! That Gouf I want!

    • Is that supposed to be a blue “Kimaris”? Get that weak thing outta here.

    • While we are on the subject of posters in the backround: I have always been wondering where one might get one of those?

    • Hope they make another thunderbolt MG soon. Keep up the awesome work!! πŸ˜€

    • Hopefully I can get an entry done for the competition once finals are over.

    • I hope there won’t be a 3 year year wait for an MG Atlas Gundam

    • I hope bandai make AOZ kit, like woundwort.

    • so many zaku… so many kimaris…

    • With IBO Season 2 coming to an end. What is both of yours favorite kit from Season 2?

    • Yay I finally won a kit. I will cherish it as an artifact of Gunpla TV history.

      You see, the trick to winning is to talk about Frame Arms Girls…

    • I still prefer the normal Vidar :/ totally didn’t expect it to get that bulky when they remove the camo, usually its the other way around.

    • Love the show. Am soooo tempted by the 1/144 scale kits; especially the RG range for which I am generally curious, but I have only 1/100 kits. Mixing the scales…. nnngghhhhhhh, not sure how that would look on my shelf. That new RG Astray Gold Frame may push me over the edge though. Looks soooo nice!

    • Another Char Aznable MS, the collection is growing…. And, I kinda hear syd said orgy kits?

    • New TB kits!!!! Order has been out through πŸ™‚

    • That Frame arms girl poster reminds me, I need to buy some frame arms girls.

    • The Kimaris gunplas are great, each form different than the last. Whereas Barbatos hardly changes in each form. The anime shows that Kimaris is overhauled to better fight in a specific battlefield while Barbatos is overhauled because it sustained heavy damages. I think the anime shows the disparity in wealth and resources between Tekkadan and Teiwaz versus Gjallarhorn and Gaelio. It also shows how weak Gaelio is as a pilot. In season 1 he insulted Mikazuki for having an ancient mobile suit and when he couldn’t win against him (Mikazuki) he brings out Kimaris and thinks he would win. The second season has Kimaris changed greatly to fight faster and with more maneuverability. Kimaris Vidar also shows Gaelio’s weakness, he has to rely on the type-e einz brain machine just to stand on equal footing with Barbatos and Bael.
      Great gunpla they are.
      On a side note, Kimaris Vidar is not showing in the hlj website, is it just me or what?

    • aawaaa my eye’s my eye’s,O switch. does that cow have horns?

    • Time to build a Nintendo Switch and play a Kimaris Vidar!

    • informative as always for a gundam noob like me

    • Sometimes I miss Brian because he loved to show more different kits.
      I would love to see some more non gundam related kitson the show, too.

    • I like the crazy “ski boy” gundam.

    • the Kimaris Vidar looks better in anime, the model itself not that well sculpted and coloured. I wonder will they ever produce a 1/100 version.

    • i now have every 1/100 of galios suits except kimaris vidar. perhaps if i bash them together.
      Wish hes also get a full mechanics

    • Can’t wait for 1/100 Bael

    • kimaris vidar. gross. get that outta here! I don’t wont that in my house!

    • Plamo plamo Everywhere!!

      Thank you!

    • I kinda operated under the assumption that the Kimaris was just the frame and the armor was mostly interchangeable. Since we’ve seen that they can identify gundams by their reactor output maybe the camouflage was masking the reactor output? Maybe I’m trying too hard to rationalize giant space robots?

    • a Gouf with Kimaris Lance.. it would be awesome

    • Gimme

    • And the winner for this week’s giveaway is ….. Me !

      Going back to the episode, not a big fan of that chicken feet on Julia’s suit. I’d probably pose it in flight mode on the stand when I get it.

      Look way cooler that way

    • Lucky lucky me! May you always build gunpla tv!

    • Hoping to see the new kits that come in March!

    • might have to get a lupus rex now.
      ZAKU I me

    • For the PLAMO Competition will a smart phone camera work? Or do I need to get a camera?

    • March is making my wallet cry.I’m probably gonna set up my kidneys up for

    • that would be the MG Wing Fenice Rinascita Todd πŸ˜€

      Initially I thought of Wargreymon after looking at Lupus Rex

    • Zaku? Did… did somebody say Zaku??? *gasp!* ZAKU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      P.S. How is Ryan? I miss him

    • Waiting for new RG and nice episode.

    • Gimme!

    • I’m really not sure which barbatos I want. I want the 6th form for the mace, because I can turn it to the original anyway. but I kinda like the lupus too.
      … but I hate duplicates.
      what do.

    • that FM Lupus REx looks awesome, hope i can one for myself

    • the more they bulk up barbatos, the more i appreciate its 1st form, ironic. and have you guys heard about the new 1:1 scale unicorn gundam in odaiba? could it be the promotion for a rg unicorn?! that would be awesome

    • Finally ordered my 1st Perfect Grade, a PG Unicorn and guess whats announced this past week, a 1:1 scale Unicorn.

      Still a bit disappointed that it doesn’t seem like we’ll be getting a 1/100 Full City, at least not any time soon.

    • If I had to pick my favorite series, it would be Zeta because of Kamille “a man’s name” Bidan and Quattro “definitely not a Char” Bajeena. I also really enjoyed the original Gundam 0079. Where these old shows lacked in animation quality they more than make up for with their old-school charm with some unintentional comedy.

    • Nice kits todd and sid i love the barbatos lupus rex….. more power to hobbylink tv!!!!ο»Ώ

    • BNuts replied 2 weeks ago

      A big problem with the Rex is that Mace-sama. It’s so big, but the joints in Rex’s arms aren’t stiff enough to hold it up. The shaft is also flexier than it should be. At the moment I’m favouring the HG Lupus, for price as well. Bandai had better come out with an improved final version, or I might get the Bael instead (although HG or FM I have no idea).

      Also, that poor, unfortunate Helmwege, standing by until the very end. They could’ve at least had him use the Shock Horns.

      I’m looking forward to seeing what the judges think about the Playing With Plamo entries. They all look awesome! I do not envy the judges their task.

      According to ‘Flying Witch,’ the fox says ‘woof!’ Time to put that whole thing to bed.

      Does that poster mean there’s a ‘Frame Arms Girls’ OVA anime?

    • hope i win the zaku……….

    • Great show guys love it, really want to get more plamo now. put a papa guys stache on a 1/100 barabatos

    • Hey guys, good episode. I was wondering if the HMM Gojulas The Ogre kit from Kotobukiya was a limited release, or will it be available once more at a later date? keep up the good work and remember, “gunpla is freedom… Strike Freedom. hahaha”

    • ACCELERATE EVOLUTION YEAH!!!! Bandai always finds new ways to explode our minds and guys you are awesome with these gunpla collections you have and of cousre the giveaways.

    • Kur0 replied 2 weeks ago

      Accelerate evolution – this year , revive – last year ..

    • shika replied 2 weeks ago

      i’ve been re-watching reginlaze julia in ibo and never noticed the claw arm thing.

    • Hubyx replied 2 weeks ago

      Something tells me it won’t be the last Barbatos. Great show guys!

    • I’m very excited for the new HGUC AE Zeta. Also I heard that the 1/100 Rex has some loose limbs rendering it from holding its giant mace is that true?

    • Gmmm replied 2 weeks ago

      Oddly enough I like the original Barbatos better than the other since its proportions are the closest ones to the RX-78.

      RIP 1:1 you will be missed. Not sure how I feel about it being replaced by the Unicorn.

    • I’m excited to see you build that new Kimaris, i think it’s the first kimaris thats really spoke to me if you don’t count the Vidar

    • Really surprised that even the 1/100 Lupus Rex don’t come with yellow claws. Thought only the 1/144 was like that. I wasn’t interested in the Reginlaze Julia until watching this episode.

    • 2 things
      – wile i was pre-ordering the mg providence i noticed its under high grades instead of mastergrades your site has a few little mistakes like this.
      – lastly i hope i win

    • Is that a Frame Arms Girl poster!?

    • I’m digging the proportions of the 1/100 rex compared to the HG counterpart. Keep up the good work guys! HLJ fow life!

    • YJ replied 2 weeks ago

      Hi Syd,

      I’d like to submit more than 8 pictures for the Playing with Plamo competition. Is there any way this can be made possible?


    • I honestly don’t like the Lupus Rex’s and Kimaris Vidar’s looks.ο»Ώ

    • Zyphr replied 2 weeks ago

      Kimaris vidar honestly looks like a downgrade. When they said take off vidars camo, i was like what camo? If anything, kimaris vidar is teh camo and vidar is the final variant. i forgot the person but there was one guy who made an awesome representation of kimaris vidar. Much more sleek and more menacing.

    • Is Anime Expo a go for you guys this year?

    • I wish there would be more variants to kits other than the Barbatos! Since the Mg ZZ Gundam ver.ka is coming, I hope there will be an MG Tryon 3. MG versions of the Beargguys would be awesome too because there is a pretty old MG Acguy!

    • As much as I love you guys, I was struggling to get a good look at that Frames Arms Girl poster the whole episode! “Move more to the left, argh cmon!”.

    • Todd’s favourite series is Build Fighters?! Yay! I’m not the only one πŸ˜€

    • You guys are just awesome!! Missing Ryan not being on the show! BRING HIM BACK LOL.

    • fuz replied 2 weeks ago

      Really liked Build Fighters it was just fun.

    • I can’t wait for gumdam Providence and the rest of the march release kits.

    • Other than working pistons I don’t really see what Bandai can do to make an MG Barbatos feasible

    • Rex means king in latin… As a huge fan of Jurrasic park (original movie still the best one by far), I find it hilariously odd that I only now just learned that. and on a Gundam show no less

    • Kira Yamato is the best pilot!

    • That Reginlaze Julia has a really good design.

    • I love Zakus!

    • Nothing against the IBO anime, but I hope to see less Barbatos gundams with this, it never appealed to me xD

      And also, THE AWESOME NEWS ABOUT 1:1 SCALE UNICORN AAAAAHHH!!! I was sad to see RX-78-2 go, but this is a great compromise!

    • I have to agree, big feet are better. Things with big feet less trouble standing on their own then small feet.

    • Who is sexy?

    • rex looks sweet

    • I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the barbatos. at very least they’ll probably go back and make forms 2-5. also GIVE ME DAT ZAKU PLZ

    • Nice episode. Would love to see that Zaku I show up on my doorstep. Origin is great. Todd’s Barbatos collection looked good. 6th Form did tried to stage dive but missed the edge of the table. Syd managed to get me to like the Julia. I do like the black and white color scheme. Looks good. The Vual looks like that donut shop employee who fell in the vat. All good. Thanks guys!

    • All hail the HGAE Zeta!!! Just finished building my MG Zeta 2.0.

    • Hi guys, nice to see all the 1/100 Barbatos together! regarding julia long legs, pretty interesting pigeon feet and way to stand! ha!

    • Another great episode guys!Love the Barbatos Lupus Rex Design. Its like a hybrid of Gundam and Evangelion. Also love Reginlaze Julia, hopefully Bandai release the 1/100 version.

    • Looking forward to the new Zeta.

    • Reginlaze is pretty sexy

    • Another great episode. Still not sure about the Reginlaze, maybe it is the character who pilots it that is pushing me away from getting it.

    • The 6th form collapse was so perfectly timed after that deadpan joke it almost looked planned.

    • Zaku!

    • i need to make the reginlaze look omre like a chinese dragon. perhaps some red

    • Can’t wait for the new HGUC Zeta gundam…

    • You guys are showing off fancy new kits while I’m sitting here building an HGUC GM… I’m gonna use this kit to practice modifying proportions and painting.

  • For this week’s episode of Gunpla TV we have two kits to show with very different looks but we had a lot of fun with both.

    Be sure to check out the ongoing Playing with Plamo 2017 Modeling Competition on […]

    • I like giant robots.

    • Dappergguy is dapper.

    • I’m just not a fan of the Rex’s proportions.

    • Not really a fan of Rex’s design and the lack of yellow on the HG is highly disappointing. I wonder if the FM also has the same problem

    • Papagguy looks quite proper

    • The Lupus Rex’s sub-arms would look cooler in action if they were holding some guns or swords from other kits/ option sets while wielding the corncob mace! Also will Gunpla TV show kits like the Mechatro WeGo? They look cool

    • Oh gods I have been looking for that powerdoll kit everywhere! So hard to find!

    • Karyu replied 4 weeks ago

      I like the shoulder armor of the lupus and the long arms of the rex? does the 1/100 come w/ the red shoulders of the lupus?

      …and hand that powerdoll over here thank you.

    • Not looking forward to masking and spraying those yellow fingers, I can understand that the correct color separation is a bit much to ask but couldn’t you at least give us some stickers Bandai?

    • To be perfectly honest, I don’t like how the Lupus Rex (or even the regular Lupus) look. It’s too much for my taste.

    • I was hopeing you would try a 4 legged pose with the lupus rex for the entire review!

    • I hope I’m not to early in commenting to win this weeks price.😉

    • Would like to get Powerdollz. Hope i win.

    • Wow that lupus Rex is awesome! Nice episode guys!

    • Isn’t “Lupus” a disorder or something? Maybe a failure in the Gundarium alloy?
      Beargguy is pretty cool.

    • Hmmmm! I know I have a spare Acguy kit somewhere!

    • On a scale of 14 to butts, how much do you like gunpla?

    • I would like to the that powerdoll2 please give it to me!!!!!!!

    • it would be awesome to have that mustache in rx-78-2
      lova that powerdolls2 it looks smooth and bulky.
      looking forward for the next show.

    • That Reginlaze kit looks surprisingly good. Love the angular design on it, plus the included basic stand is a good plus.

      Definitely going to have to get one for myself soon

    • If Tod love big feets, what does Sid love?

    • Im Waiting for Bael and the New Kimaris, You can Kitbash Lupus Rex with Lupus’ Arms if it looks Disoriented, I think those Extra Arms can hold all Barbatos’ Maces

    • I didn’t know they made POWER DoLLS kit, The More You Know.

    • wow, I didn’t know that Barbatos come with a base.

    • That’s a big box for the 1/100 barbatos.

      How about that Kimaris Vidar?! Undecided on whether I like that or not.

    • awesome show,

    • I would like the POWERDoLLS2

    • Zyphr replied 4 weeks ago

      the papa guy is very classy, definitely a must have for me

    • Cannot wait for HG gundam bael on March 2017

    • I don’t know what that is but I need it.

    • The giveaway kit looks great

    • ffoeg replied 4 weeks ago

      Cool Rex. Also luv that thunder thigh kit!

    • I agree with you on the Lupus Rex kit, they should’ve at least included the stickers for the fingers. Papa bear looks cool with the top hat and mustache.

      Lovely giveaway kit, I want that!

    • Dollz

    • holy cow that kit has massive thighs.

    • ME … WANT … POWERDOLL … never seen that kit in my life but it looks awesome. … Syd and Todd as always, great job, and yes please please please let’s get away from building Barbatos and all his 500 forms, there are plenty of kits that we will love to see you guys build and review other than IBO, just my opinion of course πŸ˜‰

    • When will it be my time to win.

    • BNuts replied 4 weeks ago

      The impression I get of the Rex is that Bandai rushed it to roll-out, and that’s why it doesn’t have the coloured parts it should. I’m hoping the final version is ‘finished.’

      From pictures I’ve seen, Kimaris Vidar continues the trend of being armed with modelling tools. This time it’s drills. But I like the Dendronium-style shields.

    • 40th comment ftw!
      oh well..

    • Hung replied 4 weeks ago

      I would like to win the POWERDoLLS2

    • raime replied 4 weeks ago

      My lucky day! May you always build gunpla tv!

    • Big fan of papagguy but sadly I dont have the money and I cant find it in any of my local hobbystores:(

    • What’s a Powerdoll? Looks cool though.

    • OMG, now I feel old cause I did play PowerDoLLs 1 & 2. They were really old school turn based strategy game for PC, I played them as a fix for more after playing the Front Mission games back then.

    • I need powerdoll power now!

    • Man I cant wait to get that Barbatos Lupus Rex!!!!!!

    • That Power Doll’s thighs make the Tallgeese look like it skipped leg day.

    • wow a new kit sadly it looks really cool so it would have been interesting to show on the show

    • I would like to win the doll.. Out of all the papa bears.. I think this dappler is the one who is going to make me buy this line.

    • I would love to see a 1/100 of the reginlaze julia.. I hope they make one

    • Ducks go quack. Cows go moo. Gunpla is awesome, and you guys are too.

    • Awesome show guys cant wait to get back into building plamo again

    • Nice! Totally wouldn’t mind that Powerdoll S2 kit as the only Plum kit I have is the Murakumo ARK Cloud Breaker 01. Anyways great episode as always!

    • Daven replied 4 weeks ago

      I love Powerdolls!

    • I can’t wait for Lupus Rex to come in 1:100, gonna be a good day

    • shika replied 4 weeks ago

      plum? plume?

    • Great show as always guys! Short and sweet~ Makes my Mondays a lot more tolerable! That Papa Guys is so dapper! I’d like to slap that mustache and top hat on the PG RX-78-2 and make a dapper PG complete with a bowtie! That black and white color scheme would be awesome!

    • the lupis rex is looking pretty sweet

    • Not sure about the papagguy thing, seems like it should come with a ball gag and rainbow stickers but i would like to win the powerdoll

    • Let me win those Thunder Thighs Please

    • forget MG beargguy, i want ballguy v2: MG ball on HG beargguy body!

    • 1/100 Barbatos lupus rex looks great and even better that it comes with a stand, can’t wait for your review on it!!

    • I love those arms and tail but I also like that doll!

    • I would love to put that mustache on the Turn A Gundam…

      Yeah POWERDoLLS2!

    • it’s awesome that they provide a stand with that rex. weird they call it rex but the arms are long…. i want powerdolls!

    • I have used the spare acguy bits to make a gas mask for a beargguy towards a fallout power armour i’m working on

    • PLUM!!

    • I want Powerdolls, I like dolls, I play with dolls…^^

    • Powerdolls2 looks so much like Hyakuren. Maybe it is just me. Maybe this time i will be lucky-er.

    • Always a great episode keep up the good work and i would love to win that Powerdoll Kit it looks amazing

    • PowerDolls baby. Yeah!!!
      never heard of them, but i won’t scoff at a free kit
      cheers πŸ™‚

    • i love dolls…robot dolls!

    • REJECTED!!! Papagguy needs to find a new hobby!

    • Great new kits!

    • I just hope that the Bael kit lives up to the hype in the same way McGillis has set in the anime.

    • Lupus Rex defies Gundam designs..

    • Just ordered my Barbados Lupus Rex in 1/100. can’t wait. for a project. Big, pretty, unassembled kit? count me in.

    • I hope bandai makes a 1/100 helmwige reincar and flauros. Those kits would look much better up scaled.

    • power doll … not I cant use my “they are not dolls they are action model” argument πŸ™

    • Man, that PowerDolls Suite looks awesome.
      Too bad their out of stock.
      But maybe I can win one?!

    • Have yo guys decided yet whether or not you’re coming Anime Expo this year? I really hope you guys do!

    • Quite a huge departure is the rex from the common barbatos design. It’s strange but quite intriguing as well. Keeo up the great job guys.

    • I think you’ve just sold me on the Lupus Rex, I was on the fence for the longest time

    • Imagine a Turn A with the Papa-guy’s mustache.

    • I hope Bandai stop this Bearguy-mania soon!
      If they want to do other mobil suits that looks funny that ok! Just stop the Bearguy (and sons, and wife, and mother, and…I don’t know! Whatever!)

      Guys I interested in the line called “Super Minipla” because is about the Super robots of the 80’s. Can you show us those kits?

    • I’m really enjoying all of the IBO suit designs and I really need to get my hands on a 1/100 Lupus Rex.

    • logic

    • what ever happened to Ryan?
      and i’m really tempted to buy that julia. I have a thing for those buff, oversized, power house kits. maybe i’ll include it with my order of the HG Atlas from you guys? we’ll see..
      oh… and Powerdolls!!!!

    • Can’t decide between 1/144 Lupus Rex or 1/100.. Hope they do a Mega size Barbatos or just more Mega size πŸ™‚

    • Come on Mr. Random Generator, we’ve had our differences but we both can agree that PowerdollS2 would look great in a Titans/Aries color scheme.

    • wait Syd you’re passing on the powerdoll “S2”?? that’s weird, but i wouldn’t mind building it in your stead

    • it’s that possible for berbatos to get another final form?or rex was his final?

    • And Syd has cut his finger again. Nice show guys!

    • I’ve never built a Powerdoll before.

    • wow that power doll s2 kit looks awesome! great show as always!

    • You guys excited for the Switch? Any games you’re planning to play?

    • Yo an unbuilt kit, sign me up

    • Power Doll? Never heard of it but sure, send it to me. Thanks!

    • I do want that POWER DoLLS kit I missed on the cosmos hahhaha

    • thunder tigh

    • Those soda popsicles are pretty good

    • Hope i win the Doll.

    • I want that power doll!

    • Hello Syd and Todd, I do have a question but also wanted to introduce myslef. I am a Paramedic in Oregon (United States) and I am brand new to both Gunpla and models. My only experience is a few models when I was a kid. I work the night shift and stay on nights during my off days. I have been looking for something to do at night on my off days which wont wake up my wife and kids and since I have been a life long GUNDAM fan I figured I would give Gunpla a shot, plus it’s crazy cool looking. I Began to watch YouTube on the topic and came across GUNPLA TV, and the PLAMO competition (I am going to be submitting my first build). I am currently watching all the episodes and I am currently up to episode 80 along with the most current 2 episodes. My question is what are both of your favorite Gundam Series, mine is 0083 Stardust Memory, but the mobile suit fights in Iron blooded Orphans are so rough and tough that its a close second.

    • I come to take that power dolls 2! Oh dear RNG God I plea Thy to get this for me!

    • I guess calling dibs won’t work, lol.

    • How’s it going Todd and Syde, feels strange to have an episode “so short” compared to recent ones. LOL. Any ways great show you guys and everyone else at HLJ, keep up the great work. As soon as I get my digital camera in the mail I’ll be able to post my entry in the 2017 modeling competition, got a lot done so far, still got a ways to go before I’ll be satisfied with the end results. After viewing the other entries in the intermediate level I feel torn, on one hand I feel more motivated to complete it, on the other I feel like I didn’t do enough work based on what I have seen so far. All the entries look really good so far, soon my entry will join the legions of other gunplay to be judged worthy of the prize. LOL Best of luck to everyone else in the competition. May Gunpla TV go on and on for ever!!!!

    • “No, sir! I didn’t see you playing with your dolls again.”

    • Great episode, have heard the 1/100 Rex has better proportions. Excited to get that kit in!

      Also, that powerdolls 2 kit has some major Chun-li like thighs… I need it!

    • I’m really tired of seeing new Barbatos, but it won’t probably stop even after the show ends.

      Guess that’s how people feel about the Unicorn gundam for those who don’t like the design (should be one or two people out there, I’m not one of them though).

    • Over played bear guy but I’m still gonna buy that Papa guy!….really though bandai….stop.

    • Thanks again for another great episode. I’ve never heard of power dolls, but that kit looks pretty cool.

    • Fuyoohhhhh hope to get that power dolls 2 hope so la

    • thank you for another great episode …

      as for the reginlaze julia review next episode..please.. can you show me the leftover part from the new reginlaze?? can it be made into the old reginlaze even if not perfect??
      thanks before..

    • power dolls pls. It’s my turn now.

    • I now want to put a mustache and hat on all of my kits.

    • Thank you for making all the videos!

    • The thighs on that powerdolls are on point!

    • I miss Ryan. Great episode guys.

    • Thank you guys so much, HLJ is the best!

    • Oh well, screwed up my a levels. At least gunpla is still there for me hahaha XD

    • I am 2 minded about getting the Rex.

    • The Papagguy’s mustache on the Turn A would be cool

    • pls!

    • I like dolls i play with dolls

    • I wanted to get the power dolls back I remember that kit hope I’m not to late it was a crazy week. Love your store and your weekly update videos. I will soon be back to building Plammo. My thumb is working again got a back logged of 30 kits and more coming lol.

    • Gunpla!!!!

    • Wow, wow, wow. Everything is nice. Powerdolls? Sounds gooood. :):):)

    • The box for the 1/100 Lupus Rex is going to drive me crazy. I love the look and idea of it from a packaging design standpoint but a box lid that doesn’t fully close is going to annoy me.

      Stupid complaint, I know. Great episode!

    • I recently saw that Bandai is making more Petit Beargguys. They have blank signs that you can draw or write on. I bet the first one that gets built is gonna have something lewd drawn on it!

    • ey bOss pls I want Powadolls to play with ma Barbie Lupus Rex

    • Will you be making a feature about the current contest entries and their work in progress images? it be nice to hear what you guys think about them.

    • Damn, I need that powerdoll! Love the big thighs and weird proportions!

    • Hey guys, was the HMM Gojulas The Ogre kit from Kotobukiya a limited release, or will it be available once more at a later date?

    • i want powerdolls2!

    • nice doll, power doll that is πŸ™‚

    • Hey guys, for the PLAMO Competition final entries will a smart phone camera work? Or am I gonna be stuck purchasing a camera?

    • Hi there!!! Great show keep it going! Still new to gunpla, i receved the RG Zaku II, quite tricky those big cables on the legs… but it went well afterall. That kit you are giving away surely make a great piece in my new colection πŸ˜‰

  • Last week’s episode turned out to be pretty big but I think we may find a return to normalcy this week with our HG Iron-Blooded Orphan kits. They may be small but they stir some strong emotions. That’s my lead in […]

    • Keep up the good work guys!!!

    • Helmwige Reincar is now one of my favourite IBO designs (minus crotch sword holder)! I hope a 1/100 FM will come out for this soon, along with the other knight like MS like the Graze Ritter!

      Also, If I put an led unit into my gunpla, is it still ok for the beginners?

    • BNuts replied 1 month ago

      ‘Rouei’ is pronounced ‘Row-eh.’ Coincidence that Lafter and Azee used it in the Battle of Edmonton? I think NOT!

    • I like your guys show so much. Did you guys know the Tekkadan is use the Hekija to get their revenge on Jasley Donomikols for killing Naze Turbine, Amida Arca, and Lafter Frankland.

    • I’ve been so busy with school I haven’t touched my entry in 3 weeks nor taken a break in general. Hopefully I can finish it by Spring Break or I won’t have anything to submit.

    • My Playing with Plamo entry is still in the private warehouse since I’m waiting for the new RG Astray to ship with it. T_T

    • i like that sinanju style back thruster on rouei

    • I didn’t realise there were Xenogears kits. They should make some kits for the other game as well.

    • My playing with plamo entry is coming together faster than i expected, but now I got to the hard part too quickly! My body isn’t ready!

    • Winner winner chicken dinner

    • kotobukiya’s model to box ratio is just weiird

    • Great video! Love that HG Helmwige Reincar!! Can’t wait for the 1/100 Barbatos Lupus Rex, probably going to get one in the future!!!

    • Im still wondering if i’ll buy the Gundam Barbatos Lupus or the Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex. Hope you show the Rex next week!

    • I love watching the episodes while building things . keep on guys!

    • I hope bandai makes a 1/100 full mechanics helmwige reincar

    • cant wait for 1/100 Barbatos Lupus Rex Review.

    • Awesome video guys! I really need to pick up one of the Barbatos kit at some point.

    • really digging the ibo kits

    • Great new kits πŸ™‚

    • I like these 3 HG IBO kits in fact I got my shipping just 2 weeks ago and Helmwidge just got it yesterday (cant wait to build it) all from HLJ. Thanks for HLJ for this IBO kits and fast shipping.

    • I think FF Figurized busts are impossible. SE hasn’t exactly lent their characters on other companies ever since they made the Play Arts Kai line.

      I think they prefer everyone to appear on Play Arts Kai or Trading Arts or whatnot πŸ™

    • “How’s it hanging?””Slightly to the left” HAHAHA

    • It’s hard to believe Todd hasn’t played Xenosaga. That’s something he should fix. It’s a great series. Just make sure you have lots of popcorn handy for the cutscenes.

    • Bee replied 1 month ago

      Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start!

    • ‘Nother episode, more fun.

      I’m not super excited about this option set, more for the next one, but hey more stuff is always cool. Not a fan of the Lupus Rex, and the HG looks like a mediocre kit due to sticker use and weird proportions, not a fan of the design either so an easy pass, even for the FM. Never saw the appeal in Beargguys and Papagguy does not do anything to change that opinion, looks classy though.

      All these HG kits are on my wishlist right now. HG Rouei was there from the start and never came off. I’ve built the Hyakuren and enjoyed it, but I did much prefer the design of the Rouei more, and was sad we didn’t get a kit by the end of S1. I’m happy we get one now though, and although it has a bit of stickers and barely noticeable hollow parts, it’s on the wishlist and it’s never coming off.

      Hekija is also a kit i’m interested in. A shame about the hollow parts on the feet, I wouldn’t of minded it if it didn’t have that thruster gimmick or the toe that arches upward, but still getting one. Fan of the MS, fan of the pilots and I need to show my respects to Lafter. :'(

      Helmwige Reincar was a kit that appealed to me a bit at first, but I wasn’t terribly excited about it, then the colorscheme was shown and I wasn’t a huge fan of it, and seeing the mustard yellow didn’t help. Yet after seeing the box and the kit a few times, I now really want one. Funny what time can do to your opinions sometimes. I’m definitely getting all these kits though, and i’ve got good expectations. πŸ™‚

    • helmwige looks like shovel knight. and ofc hope i win

    • Can’t wait to get my Lupus Rex with his deformed hands, and seeing as most winners say this, I hope I win!!

    • Oh cool I had completely forgotten there was a KOS-MOS kit. Unless I win it(unlikely) I’ll go ahead and pick one up.

    • I’ve seen some comments online criticizing the fact that you can’t upload any pictures of your progress off of the hobbylink.tv website, but I understand the rule. I agree with Syd about how people finish a great project and then they enter it into every subsequent contest online or otherwise. Nothing wrong with that I guess…but there’s a certain fairness with making something specifically for a major contest.

    • I really love your reviews, but it would be nice t show some more gimmicks and/or articulation.

      I’ve been waiting since December for my present, hopefully this week is the week I manage to win a kit xD

      Arigatou ~

      Cant wait for the full review on the Lupus Rex, Really want that kit, but after last weeks episode I really want a Bael, imo it looks awesome !

    • great show as always looking forward to new releases

    • Um wow, that Helmwige Reincar sure does have an interesting way of stowing away its sword.

    • Good show as always! Are we gonna get any more 1/100 ibo kits other than barbatos with bigger names?! Where is full city?

    • this video made me checked Xenosaga, I never had the time to tried that game before, maybe I should someday.

    • great episode as always

    • Todd went full weird…

    • Ha, sorry sorry about going off topic with FF VII.
      I got it going on my Ps2.
      So…what were they thinking with putting the sword there?

    • Can’t wait to start working on my kit for the competition, currently it’s sitting in my private warehouse waiting for a pre-order to come in stock before I ship. I’ll be making a 1/100 Space Shuttle Enterprise this year.

    • i hope to win KOS-MOS! best girl
      in Xenosaga series

    • Yes guys, I would like to win one of those “perfumed” boxes. Also, thanks for another great episode. Not a huge IBO fan but I’ve bought 3 kits from the show so far. They’re pretty cool. Thanks HLJ crew and Gunpla TV.

    • It’s always good to win a kit, whether it is gundam or not. Can’t wait to see the review on that new HG Zeta.

    • I realy like the IBO kits specially Helmwige Reincar and I just got it 3 days back. Thanks to HLJ for fast shipping and a secure packaging.

    • Gotta be in it, to win it!

      Love hlj, love the show, thanks to the hole team your the best. When i get your message, its gonna make my day.

    • interesting giveaway. not sure if I like them or not. but can’t argue about the guns it comes with though.

    • Kotobukiya’s humanoid kit is quite good when compared to an action figure with the same price range + we can mod it to our likes

    • Nice episode as always guys. Excited to get the new 1/100 Rex. The Full Mechanics line has been my bread and butter. Sort of related but do you guys think the 1/144 arm proportions for the rex are a little wacky? It seems like they’re much larger proportionally on the HG than the 1/100. The HG has a bit of an ape look going to me.

    • I am looking forward to your review of the HG Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex.

    • i like the Iron blooded orphans themed episode πŸ™‚ thanks for their reviews πŸ™‚

    • Rouei looks pretty good, but think the weapon is ridiculously big.

    • Great show as always guys. I’ve got a question about the playing with plamo contest. Under the beginner category it mentions hand painting is ok but what about airbrushing? If I use an airbrush to detail up some parts but not to do a full paint job would it still qualify for beginner or get bumped up to intermediate?

    • Lets do something smaller: Breaks open two expensive kotobukia kits πŸ˜€
      Played both pso2 and xenosaga but i like pso2 alot better πŸ™‚

    HI, i did a Station Wagon, with the Tamiya Subaru Impreza. I hope you guys enjoyed!!

    Nice model. Too bad it violates the entry requirements and cannot be eligible for the competition as it was built for another purpose and can be seen on the internet.

  • We have a big episode for everyone showing new kits in different grades and talking a bit about handling those frame covers on the MG Psycho Zaku Ver. Ka Thunderbolt kit. We also talk about the just announced […]

    • That Barbatos Lupus Rex look awesome

    • That astaroth origin would be nice. I always like the way you guys go over multiple kits each episode.

    • at times i like solid kits, at times i like flashy kits, guess the only solution is to buy them all

    • Putting all the weapons on the ship is so dumb but amazing at the same time. They really made the most out of what they could fit in that one package.

    • New episode means new fun!

      The stand campaign is interesting, I might get one if I can. I’m very excited for the HG Atlas, it’s going to be awesome. I’ve always liked the MS and it’s certainly a unique design and has a lot of display options, super excited for it. I’m likely getting the new Origin because it has more stuff and I don’t have the old Origin yet, so this is a pick up for me. I’m also picking up the regular Char’s Zaku I. This one is more like the standard Zaku I and has a better colorscheme so i’m definitely getting this one. Not a big fan of the Lupus Rex, so I probably won’t get one. Bael on the other hand looks awesome, i’m very likely getting one. The new option set seems to be something I will get if only for the Landman Rodi, still nice to see conversion kits, these are sweet. The new Petit’gguy is interesting with it’s smaller teddy bear, so I can have some Bear-ception with the Beargguy F, which is nice! I’m very excited for the Amazing Strike Freedom, which is a shame that others don’t share my sentiment, because i’m a fan of how it looks, especially with that red frame. Super Fumina is a joke that still needs to die and me no gusta. MG Providence looks amazing and i’m super excited for it, it would look great with the freedom 2.0, don’t think i’m getting the limited version though. RG Astray Amatsu Mina has got me super hyped. RG Astray Red Frame one of the best looking kits out there IMO and this thing looks great as well, I need one. I’m a fan of Macross Delta so i’m definitely getting the new Draken III.

      Not too interested in the Figure-Rise standard DBZ kits but my friends might be. I need a Rouei, I was a big fan of the MS and the Hyakuren was a nice little kit, so this has definitely got my attention. I wasn’t a huge fan of Helmwidge Reincar’s colorscheme at first but it grew, the mustard plastic is not that great looking though.

      The BB Senshi Barbatos Lupus initially interested me, however seeing the Mobile Worker and Isarabi molded entirely in grey without any color at all turned me off, it was disappointing but eh, oh well. I’ve got the Robot Damashii GM Sniper II only a week before the MG was announced, so I unfortunately did not share the hype for the MG, but I still might get the White Dingo version, and the kit itself is quite impressive. I’m also definitely having the GM Ground Type, been waiting for the HG and Bandai finally delivered, and it doesn’t disappoint. Definitely getting this guy, he looks very good and it’s nice to see another MS get a new HGUC kit.

    • If I won that Astaroth I would be compelled to buy a second one to make them symmetrical, fingers crossed for the Origin form then.

    • finally, new episode! that was a lot of stuff covered in this episode. awesome job guys. now, can i have the 2 astaroths, please? xD

    • I want to have a complete collection of the IBO series but Astaroth is the only one I can’t get. I wish I could win this one. Seriously, IBO is the first series that really got me into Gunpla.

    • Can’t wait to buy the GM Sniper 2. Really great looking kit. And of course wouldnt mind winning those astaroths!

    • damn nice episode again, XD a good watch while building the kit for the competition

    • nice ep loving that gm sniper would like to win

    • I need the Astaroth Origin so bad

    • Gundam sephirotthhh!!

    • Oh the nostalgia! This episode made me want to watch MS 08th Team all over again. Long live the Universal Century!

    • tried to buy those 2 kit. but sold out :/

    • This sniper kit is really nice. I hope for the Red Astaroth.
      Also a quastion.
      Syd, what is your favorite grade of gunpla? I think that you have answer that before but I don’t remember. TNX!

    • That red asteroth tho ,its finished in my area


    • cant wait for the Barbatos Lupus Rex, or lets just say… the B-REX..

    • Great episode guys, the new IBO kits coming soon look great, tough choice to decide to get IBO or thunder bolt kit.

    • give me my astaroth

    • Love the new kits πŸ™‚

    • Maybe one day Todd will get a promotion, and then he will get build the cooler HG kit. But not today.

      Also, one of the shoulders on the SD Barbatos Lupus is upside-down. Whoops.

    • That GM Sniper looks tasty. Not so sure about those colors though…

    • I could use a spare asteroth

    • That GM Sniper is really crying out to be modified heavily. I’d love to get one of these.

    • roll on march atlas astray gold frame and providence oh yes. dam you randon number generator god. please guys is there any truth about bandai being able to sell star wars kits outside japan again soon

    • Thank you Gunpla TV, you guys are the best.

    • It’s IBO hype, hope to win any of the two Duke’s of hell… Nice episode, always love it if the episode is more than an hour, more content more gunpla… More power,
      Hope I win!!!

    • Thank you Gunpla TV, you guys are the best.

    • I love the Astaroth, the assymetrical design I find really appealing and I love the sword. Still haven’t gotten my hands on the origin version because theres been so many kits, but I’d love to get my hands on one.

      Can’t wait to see that Providence Gundam in action when it comes in and gets built.

    • Wow so many gunplas this March and 2 IBO giveaway. Great episode!

    • Trying to win again. Not a great comment but…you know…i just want to win!

    • I like variation IBO kits.

    • Ooohhh Bael Is Coming

    • i would love to have my very first IBO Gumpla, as much as it bould be Astaroth. that left arm is sexy as super fumina

    • Thanks for the tutorial. Don’t have that kit, but good to know more techniques.

    • I think my gunpla have started fighting each other.

      I woke up this morning and my MG Zaku was mising an arm (it was on the floor, still holding it’s gun), my RG RX 78-2 had fallen over, my RG Zeta had dropped it’s beam rifle and my MG Wing ver. Ka had fallen off it’s action base…

    • Great show guys! Thanks for the reply.

    • Thanks for the episode gunpla tv! May you always build

    • Great long episode guys, great for listen while working on my entry. Todd, GM ground type’s abs joint was used on the HGUC RX 78-2 revive. Helmwige Reincar reminds me a bit of reinhardt from overwatch. It just need to replace that sword with a hammer. Hammer Down!

    • My body wants that Astaroth.

    • GN Sniper seems so cool. not sure if I like the color scheme tho

    • Great Video, i watch you guys on Youtube and then pop over here so I can maybe win some Astaroths! Also, time to save for March with so many cool releases.

    • Welp time to not win another HlJ giveaway.

    • dat sniper! The detail from your tutorial was incredible. hope to win this year!

    • Thank you for the prize.

    • Great episode. Not a SD collector but you guys manage to make even that interesting. GMs are always cool. Todd has a cool take on the kits….a nice counter to Syd. Great team. Thanks guys!

    • RG Amatsu Mina?!? I hope someday there will be an MG version, since the only 1/100 is NG.

    • Oh RNGesus. Bless me like a “asteroid” hitting “gaia.

    • I am looking forward to getting my hands on the gm sniper 2

    • Astaroth Origin, please. And please ensure all parts are functional so I can repair that damage. Need that Sarge Special.

    • I actually heard people bashing on that new Fumina kit, as it looks a bit outrageous to them, haha. Personally, I’m just not in fond of the weird face, the Bust Fumina looks nice though imo.

    • I wouldn’t mind having a third Astoroth

    • Been awhile since I’ve seen one of the giveaways i was interested in…lets give it a shot.

    • I would like an Astaroth. Thank you!

    • BANDAI! I sincerely hope that the Woundwort gum candy figure isn’t another teaser with nothing to show for it. You and I both know that it’s one of the most popular MS designs out there still lacking a kit. Do us all a favour and work with Dengeki Hobby to get an actual kit made instead of forcing us to rely on fix-pose resin models!

      • Same here! I’ve been itchin to get that Woundwort Gundam kit,hope Bandai released her as HG 1/144 first before rising up to MG 1/100 soon because the resin kit version her is not pleasing enough for me!

    • The build strike didn’t really catch my attention BUT that new Astray is looking like a MUST buy. 0.0

    • I wish i had more time to build Gunpla…University take all my time!

    • Love that Helmwige Reincar! can’t blame Sid for taking it for himself, definitely gonna get one myself when I get the chance πŸ™‚

    • I was never a fan of the designs of the UC Federation grunt suits, but that GM ground type looks really cool!

    • MG N-666 Kshatriya when?

    • Keep the cool reviews! Hope to win πŸ™‚


    • the GM Sniper II is going to be a must buy for me.
      Strange how you bring up Sephiroth. I’ve actually started to replay the original FFVII again on the PS1.

    • The Astaroth kits look pretty cool.

    • Thanks for the shout out guys that really took me by surprise ha ha.

      Loving the new Barbatos Lupus Rex, will definitely be getting one soon !

    • Ooh Astaroth Origin….

    • i want the gunpla girls doing a review of the puchi-puchi guy.

    • Very nice! I like Astaroth, the Origin version is so much better, though.

    • I like both versions of the Astaroth. Would be nice to have them both. Also that GM Sniper looks amazing!

    • GM Sniper for the win

    • nice show guys. πŸ™‚

    • Sweet! 2 Astaroths. Btw Todd placed one of the shoulder armour on Barbatos Lupus wrong lol.

    • newbie at plamo here. .but i find it interesting. .so very informative video. .tnx guys

    • looking forward to Barbatos lupus Rex review.

    • oh I almost forgot, how do we know that HLJ has successfully received our photos for the final entry? all I have as proof is a computer screen shot of the line “Your message was sent successfully. Thanks”, is it enough? thanks in advance.

    • Cool

    • I like to win one of the Astaroth.

    • Super Fumina!

    • great job guys, I’m looking forward to seeing all the competition winners.
      I just had a few questions, you said that if your model looks too good for a beginner then you might get moved up to intermediate, I’m just wondering will you let someone know before the end of the competition for is this done when you are judging?
      I would also like to know if there is a rule against using a logo from another franchise for example is I were to paint a super-man “S” on my shield would that be a problem?
      Last thing have you ever had it where the person who wins the model give away doesn’t want it?

    • It’s the year of the GM!

    • Both of the Gundam Astaroth looks nice, but I prefer the red one.

    • the astaroth origin will be mine ,all mine!!!!

    • Pick meeeere

    • The SD DX Isaribi looks cute. they gave a free Barbatos with it how cool Bandai is that from giving us a free Barbatos

    • love when they made a long episode.

    • I really want to see a Sephiroth inspired Astaroth now.

    • Astaroth! Have the blue one already, please let me win the red one.

    • Astaroth!


    • I want it!

    • the 1/144 HG Helmwige Reincar looks kind of ugly, but at least it has a big sword which makes it automatically cool in my books.

    • Astaroth and its Origin form, pretty much like Two-Face looking at himself on a mirror.

    • UC Line best line ever. πŸ™‚ I am kinda new to this site (just discovered it) It is cool that we now have a facebook-esque site for Plamo Builders.

      Also, question… can we use pla plates in the intermediate category?

    • I was suprised how small the gm snipers box was

    • Sorry if asked before

      Hello HLJ and Master Syd.

      So yeah… a couple of questions:

      1. Can me and my wife both enter the competition (me in intermediate, she in beginner) as you know we are both fans of Gunpla and both build our own different kits?

      2.We have two HLJ accounts, however both are named after her and me as a care of in the address section as she has more time to pick up the kits at our post office and in times she cannot, i do so… Is this okay?

      Thanks for the response

    • Great Video! Can’t wait for the master grade Providence Gundam but still waiting for the master grade Legend Gundam.

    • Loved the episode, guys! Trying to plan my next HLJ order soon!

    • Bee replied 1 month ago

      Thanks for the tutorial, it really helped ^_^

    • I wish the prize was a KOS-MOS version 4 figure, but any figure of her is more than welcome.

    The rules have been clarified to state clearly that the kit can be purchased from somewhere other than HLJ.com however you will need a customer account at HLJ.com in order to submit your final order and claim any prizes.

    HobbyLink Japan has a huge range of models. I don’t think it’s fair to say that people’s creativity is being stifled by asking that they use models that were/are available for sale through hlj.com
