Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn started

The first episode of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn has been released and it looks good. All of the Gundam series starts off with a kid who gets tossed into a mobile suit battle. And of course these 16-year-old kids pilot their Mobile Suit like an expert in less than 5 minutes. This series takes place […]

Darker than Black – Gaiden

The anime Darker than Black Gaiden has started.  The last series was not too bad but this seems to have more action. It’s supposed to take place right after the first season. I’ll keep an eye on it and see if it’s worth following.

Gundam compilation

Saw this on Ngee Khiong. The kids will like seeing it. Ngee Khiong always has good coverage on most things Gundam related and I’m constantly looking there to see what’s new. Edit: Sunrise took it down. Bummer.

Completed the 1/144 HG 00 Raiser

After I completed the Crossbone Gundam I started the 1/144 HG 00 Raiser designer colors version. Not a bad build and I put on almost all of the decals. My son built the 1/100 00 Gundam and this one had shared a lot of the same flexibility. With HG models, the build time is very […]

MG Crossbone Gundam X-1

And the struggle to reduce my Gunpla backlog continues! I’ve just finished assembling the MG Crossbone Gundam X-1. It’s the pirate Gundam and it’s very cool. Things to consider with this model: No poly caps! Cool since models are meant to be posed and not played with. The F91 is the same way. It’s very […]

Finished the MG Gyan

I’ve been trying to catch up on my back log of Gunpla and I assembled the MG Gyan. As master grades go, it was “Eh”.  The build was not particularly difficult and there were not many surprises. It’s a heavy model and posing it is difficult.  The shield is huge. If I wanted to pose […]

Working on the MG RX-78-2 ver 2.0

“Can you please build my legs now?” The Master Grade RX-78-2 version 2.0 is coming along nicely. Bandai keeps improving on it’s model designs and this one is easy to build. Compared to the version 1.5 it’s a joy. Once I’ve completed it I’ll take a picture of it next to the version 2.0 of […]

Zaku II version 2.0

I’ve picked up on making the Zaku II version 2.0 again and have completed the torso and head.  It’s a good model and when I have it complete I’ll put the old 1995 version next to the 2007 version for comparisons. My kids love watching me build these.  I have some left in the basement […]
