MG Destiny (Regular) Color Chart

This is the color chart for the MG ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam Regular version. I figured alot of people will be getting rid of the chrome finish and painting the parts their proper color. I will update the chart later with the colors to paint the small Shinn and Stellar figures.Please note the following colors are from the Gunze Sangyo (GSI Creos) "Mr. Hobby" line of water soluble paints. The color chart will also be added to the sidebar. Please click on the color chart to see a bigger picture.

P.S. Any color chart request please e-mail me.

MG Destiny Out Now

The MG Destiny has been officially released and mine are on their way, and as a matter of fact they should arrive later on today. I got 3 (don't ask me why) of the special edition version with the wings of light. I thought that the regular version was pretty much useless so I decided to pass on it. MG Destiny was probably the biggest Gunpla release this year, the last big Gunpla release that I remember was the release of the MG Strike Freedom last December. This will be my next kit and then i'll take a break from the Cosmic Era line of Gunpla. Im thinking of building the 1/100 Exia after the Destiny. I'll post pics of my kits when I receive them.

Halo 3 Legendary Edition

Exactly a month and a day ago the biggest game ever was released. Halo 3 was finally delivered to us and it does not disappoint at all. The single player campaign is great with challenging levels and designs that remind you of Halo 1. BTW I thought Halo 2 was crap, i don't know exactly what it was about it that I didn't like but I just hated it. Halo 3 on the other hand was a game that I just couldn't put down. After playing both Halo 1 and a little bit of Halo 2 on normal difficulty, I decided to tackle Halo 3 on HEROIC difficulty. Let me tell you that Heroic is the way Halo 3 was meant to be played. The game changes so much from normal and you actually have to strategize your moves otherwise you'll end up dead. If you have the skill then try Legendary difficulty, otherwise stay away because Legendary is suicidal.

Halo 3 was released in 3 different versions, Regular $59.99, Limited Edition $69.99, and Legendary Edition for $129.99. I got the Legendary Edition and it was well worth the money, it comes with an extras disc not included in the Limited Edition. The best thing about the Legendary edition is the collectible replica of a Spartan Mjolnir Mark VI helmet with display stand. The display stand holds the discs and is uniquely numbered. I came in at 134,842 which is pretty high up there.

If your a fan of the Halo franchise then get the Legendary edition since it was worth every buck. Oh and beware of the online mode since its highly addictive.

Prelude to Freedom

IM BACK!! My apologies to everyone but as many of you know Halo 3 was released a couple of weeks back and its definitely a soul sucker. I managed to beat the game and after feeling like the world was over I realized I had a MG Strike Freedom in the works.

I got to work on it and now I am completely done with the body. The body has been painted, panel lined and has the final coat of clear. I paid attention to many of the small details such as the vents on the leg and some gold that had to be painted on the ankle armor. I removed seams from the rail cannons and the head using tamiya basic putty and extra thin cement. Now onto the wings which require a vast amount of putty and glue. More pics soon......
