Phase impulse MG Edition

Here is the video that came with the MG Force Impulse, if only the SEED movie were to look like this. The video looks amazing and it features alittle of the fight between the Impulse and the Freedom.

The biggest thing about this video is the announcement at the end. It says a new SEED MG is coming this fall. The color of the background suggests the it might be one of Athurun's MS. Finally, Athurun gets a MG, although there is a 95% chance that it will be the Infinite Justice, I would prefer the Saviour. Here is the clip coming from Ngee Khiong.

MG Guntank

I have never been a fan of the Guntank. It never attracted me and to me it is in the same league as the Zakrello. But the MG model of the Guntank is actually amazing. It is actually a remote control model!!

You can move the entire model including the arms with the control. This is actually a cool gimmick that Bandai has come up with and they are pulling out all the stops on these Universal Century kits. Check out the video below taken from Ngee Khiong's site.

Hobby Shop Clearance 08

I don't know if many of you remember last year the killing I made at my annual hobby shop clearance. There was one location were they apparently only had one Gunpla builder and it was me. I came out with a few models at a very discounted price. This year, luck was not on my side, my secret was found and the store that has no Gunpla builders transfered all heir kits to a store almost always sells out of their Gundam kits.

They had a PG Strike Rouge on clearance which is what I really wanted. 3 weeks into the sale it was gone so i was disappointed. They also had the HCM-PRO Destroy but I passed on it. The only thing that I found was a HY2M Limited Edition Extra Finish Version Char's Rick Dom. This is my first 1/60 kit ever as I don't own any Perfect Grade kits. I paid $150 which I don't think is that bad since it sells everywhere for $250 plus. HLJ has it on clearance for about $210 but shipping is $80. I love the lighting on the kit, Dalong has the review of the regular version which is exactly the same as this one.

1/100 Gundam Exia

After a four month hiatus, I'm back.... Many things have happened in my life since the beginning of 2008. Things that have changed me as a person completely but I am back now. The Gunpla purchases have continued and the building has never ceased. I just have not had any time to take pics.

All this time I ave been working on my Exia, every single part of this kit has been painted and I did not use any stickers that came with the kit. I did use some of the stickers and dry transfers that came with my MG Wing Ver. Ka. The Exia looked a little plain so I decided to add some markings. The Celestial Being logo on the shield came from the March issue of Dengeki Hobby. I am quite happy with the way the kit turned out.

I am torn between what model I'm going to build next, I am deciding to with either the MG Destiny, MG Unicorn, MG F91, 1/144 Sword Calamity or just wait for the MG Impulse. For now enjoy the pics and give me some feedback. Also I apologize for the time stamps on some of the pics but I am using my father's camera and I realized it a bit late. Kinda lazy to take a whole new shoot ^_^.
