It only seems long because they broke it up into multiple parts. The entire thing is barely the length of a single TV episode

I not sold on all the changes but I really am sad it turned out to be such a hand grenade.

I guess itís just Metal c for me as well.

That said they drop a Wing Version even if itís a hand grenade Iíll buy it.

Working on the MG GM Sniper II and, yep, this kit is fantastic. Just a fun simple build with some clever engineering for posablity. Really hope to see this frame used in a ton of GMs and GM-liks going forward. It's the perfect army builder frame. Good to see the upcoming P-Bandai GM Command use it, even though I'm not a huge fan of that design. Maybe we can see a GM Origin, GM Custom Origin, GM III or maybe even a Nemo or something built on this frame.

crossposting since there's a few Macross fans here.
i've been waiting for this:
This is hands down the most military-ish paint scheme in Macross Delta (not the bright colors on the Delta Squadron) i really dig it. Pre-orders start Oct 6. no rush bc it's a soul web shop exclusive with no limit on ordering. so it will be very easy to get.

Macross Delta VF-31A Kairos
22,680 yen

Will be available on Nippon Yasan

Is the p-bandai Tallgeese III a good kit? It's one of my favourite mobile suit designs in the entire franchise so I am very tempted to get it.

It's incredible how meta this episode is. Having built a lot of Bearguys, the surplus parts issue is something I totally understand. This is the right kind of humor for this kind of show. Obvious product placement, but so self-aware that it's hilarious.

Can you actually assemble the left-over Acguy head? I made my first Bearguy the other week (Papaguy) and when I attempted to put together the Acguy head I couldn't figure out what goes where. But yeah, that part was extra funny if you've ever built a Bearguy before.

That Bearguy crucifixion scene would make for a great diorama.

Battlogue #3 was a cute little marketing vid. They acknowledge it as such and it's a fun episode as a whole, but I think I was hoping this series would be more like the first episode with the different pilots in custom suits and so on.

Like, the next episode is based on the PG Exia, the MG ZZ Ver.Ka, and the HG Cherudim GFT. Let's see what they do with that.

I know people are going to complain because it's not like Ep 1, but I have been okay with the last two episodes. Ep 2 involved the best character to come out of Try, and it was clear that Ep 3 is not meant to be taken seriously (and I wouldn't be opposed to seeing more of those two in future episodes). These are essentially 10 minute long commercials, so there's no need to run the Ep 1 AI premise into the ground already.

Bought my first Gundam kit today of this little dude


Also can't get over how big the store is


Hopefully this is as easy as the Zoids kits I used to put together are.

Also I hate I can't watch either my Crunchyrolll account here or the offical Gundam YouTube, I was half way through Ironblooded Orphans :(

MG ZZ Ver Ka ordered from HLJ.

Debating on two things. Firstly, trying a pencil for panel lining. I've got a pencil with .05 lead, will that be small enough?

Second, skipping the decals because me and waterslides don't have a good history.

This might be a long shot. But does anyone know where I can get a 1/144 Gundam Virsago for relatively cheap?
I'll even accept parts/already built. I'm looking for it's legs for a custom Gunpla.

Took a peek at a few Sites I knew that sold old kits but I couldn't find it, sorry. David, know places that might sell old/used stuff other than mandrake? They only have the Robot Spirit version.

Too bad the VF-25 trounces the VF-31 in tech specs and had better pilots piloting. SMS would've solved the Windumere hassle in like two sorties.

Finally finished my MG Exia. I had it already snap built since January, but only got around to painting it 2 months ago. I used metallic blue and pearl white, though the texture doesn't show on the low-quality pics. What really took a long time was applying the waterslide decals. They're so good once applied, but the process is a pain in the ass. I really like how it turned out, and I might use pearl white again when I get around to my MG Qan[T] and XN-00-Raiser. Potato pics below:




I'm so excited for the Perfect Grade Exia :D

Building the MG Freedom 2.0 and man. I must've got a grab bag of the best kits Bandai has done in recent memory. I don't love the freedom, but the build quality and engineering are fantastic. I love how solid it feels due to the all plastic construction and how much engineering has gone into allowing the joints maneuver how they need to get those exaggerated anime poses SEED is known for. I don't love the freedom, it's typically a bit dull for me, but the alterations made to the proportions and details are fantastic. This is basically a Ver. Ka in all but name. Can't wait to build the signature wings soon. Maybe one day we'll get a new Strike Freedom that has this much love put into it and can actually make that design tolerable.

Yep, love the Freedom MG 2.0 as well. It's currently my favorite kit. Coincidentally, just happened to finish everything on mine about an hour ago:

Will post better pics of Exia and Freedom later once I get a better camera.

Fair warning, the stand it comes with isn't the best, especially if it's placed atop an unstable surface. Mine took a dive and lives no more, but I plan to eventually build a new one.

I saved the shield and beam rifle, gonna use them as practice for applying waterslides and topcoating before my ZZ comes in.
