Toys Fair: 3rd Toys Mania 2010

The most eye catching stand on the fair due to it's mountains of plamo.

Went to the local annual toy fair last sunday with only one thing in my mind: getting the HGUC Sinanju.

SD Gundam G Generation World

Hi there, been quite a while since I updated my blog ;^^.

[Mini WIP] HGUC Delta Plus

Hey guys, finally finished the mid exams. ^^

I have finished the HGUC Delta Plus, but I didn't manage to get many pics for WIP (even though I did quite a bit of coloring extras here and there). And even then the pics were taken with bad lighting which forces me to crank up the exposure and brightness while sacrificing quality, really sorry ;^^

[4Koma] The Red Hustler part 2

A continuation from the previous 4koma.

I'm still confused what to write a moving mecha SFX should be like ;^^

Albero = Gespenst Mk-II Custom Albero Use
Seventh = Full Armor Gundam 7th

A closer look on the upcoming HG kits

Another random header pic taken with my cellphone

So I've been reading more magazine shots of the upcoming HGUC/AW/FC kits that I've been watching for a while on Gundam Guy, and surprisingly I realized a lot of stuffs I didn't know before.

Interesting stuff from 50th All Japan Plamodel Hobby Show

50th All Japan Plamodel Hobby Show has been a pretty interesting show (I pretty much always says this whenever a show exhibited many new upcoming kits ;^^).

After reading from Gundam Guy and Gundam Model Kits and Figures, here are the kits that had me interested or a definite buy!!

[4Koma] The Red Hustler *Edited*

EDIT: changed some minor typo, text placement, and sfx.

text on my 4koma? Egads!!

When I think of what kind of SFX would it be from the Armored Core's verniers, "vreeeeen" (or ブイイ~~ン if you like :p) was the only thing that came to my mind ;^^

[Sidestory] Recent stuff October 12th 2010

Click for bigger picture

Since I think this "Sidestory: Recent Stuff" will now be a recurring post on this blog (to avoid hiatus like now =/),
I thought I should put a picture to not make these posts empty. It just happens that I liked taking pictures of the sky with my cellphone(when they're good enough).
I just hope I don't get to meet with a vampire that like to drink tomato juice (cake for those who understand the reference).

[Review] HGUC GM Striker

Finally I posted this review! Sorry if anybody waited ;^^, I was delayed by college, keeping in tune with latest animes, the destruction of my RG's beam rifle's peg (and it's fruitless attempts at repairing it ;_;), and also because Cosmic Break were having 8x exp and money event :p.

Another "Why I'm missing"

Soo yeah, I missed another week without a post again ;^^.

well, there's only one--- or should I say two reason for it:

Revoltech Woody strikes again!

Just saw these these on Tomopop, and knew that the Terror of Evil Woody still continues.

These images were taken from Tomopop which were taken from theonecame.

As with the last one, some pics might be NSFW or plain terror on the eyes.

EDIT: okay, I just realized that the last 2 article I've posted in this blog have... "unique" header pic. ROFL.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

I've been watching Kamen Rider OOO

and the chairman person was like...

seriously though, it is quite silly and over the top.

oh, and I've been missing for almost two weeks. ;^^

These might just be excuses, but I've been missing because of:
1) Local holidays.
Which made me go around places all day for a couple of days, not to mention I'm also away from where I kept all my plamo & figures.
2) Holiday assignment.
Just to complete the "fun".
3) Capitalism, ho!
If you know what I mean...

and Whoa!! over 400 views on the last two days!?

[4Koma] Wheels on the sky

Somewhat a continuation of my first 4koma.

And the rivalry between Subaru and God Gundam continues.
Quite a bit of photoshop testing there. I wonder if I overkilled on some stuff there ;^^.
Because I didn't have a MG action base for the ReZEL, I used two Figma stands and put each of the stand between the body and legs.

Thoughts on recent stuff

A couple of short news regarding recent stuff and some Chara Hobby 2010 stuff that piqued my interest (if not already before the event).

All Chara Hobby 2010 images are taken from Ngee Khiong.

Wait, I though last time I said I'm doing GM Striker's WIP next.

Oh well. Anyway, the Lego's are already on exhibition on a local mall, and they're going to announce the winner.

So I came.
The event's not starting yet.
Waits, wanders around.
The event finally started 2-3 hours late.
Blahblahblah introduction speech.
Blahblahblah Lego's representative from Denmark speech.
Blahblahblah Lego's local representative speech.
Blahblahblah representative from both participating universities speech.
Aaaaaand the winner is... whoa, already? (less than an hour from when the event started)

[New Stuff] SIC Vol. 54 Kamen Rider Ixa & Kamen Rider Dark Kiva

After not getting any SIC with the reason of price or design for a while, I finally gave in to the temptation and bought my very first SIC, Kamen Rider Ixa & Dark Kiva.

Sidestory: Local Video Game Forum Gathering

Today I went to a local Video Game Forum's Grand Gathering (although the Admin said this one was a mini-Grand Gathering) at a game rental.

The Terror of Evil Woody

You could say this is a continuation from previous Revoltech Woody article.

2chan users had uploaded many pictures exploiting Sci-Fi Revoltech Woody's "evil face" (although 2chan users preferred calling it "perverted face"), with hilarious and/or creepy results.

WARNING: some pics are NSFW or just plain "cannot unsee".

Evil Revoltech Woody!!

I wasn't interested in the Revoltech lines (at least not yet). But when Sci-Fi Revoltech announced that they're gonna make Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, I can't help but get interested (not enough to make me buy them, but at least it piqued it)since Toy Story 3 touched me.
Then many news and review were up, and just because, I read most of 'em.

So the thing is, Woody gets a feature of moveable eyeballs and two interchangeable face.

The first face:

oh, I guess that's okay, dunno. Somehow I thought the face wasn't "neutral" enough, but wasn't "happy" enough either.
Oh well, let's just take a look on the second face, probably it's better...

Video Review of MG Figurise 1/8 Kamen Rider W Cyclone Joker

a video review of a sample of MG W Cyclone Joker by apronperson is out.

Detailed building review are available at Gunpla Secret factory (Japanese):
Part 1: Unboxing and Runners
Part 2: Neck and Body
Part 3: Head and Arms
Part 4: Lower Body

The figure looked very awesome with realistic articulation and gimmick (full finger joints FTW!).
I think I would buy this kit... if I'm not in a monetary pinch (which I do now ^^;)
so I guess I'll just wait till they do MG Fang Joker :3

Gallery: Unicorns in the Dark

Models: HGUC 1/144 RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Unicorn mode & Destroy mode

These pictures were taken last March and was left unedited on my notebook :P.
And since Divinelight from Celestial Gundam is making a groupbuild of Unicorn, I thought I'll just register them (although I registered them VERY late :p).

Many of the pics were taken as a test using my roommate's emergency light.

You can see that I put quite a lot of decals on Destroy mode (much more than the ver. Ka XD) and red lining on the Unicorn mode (made with a cheap red marker :P).
For a guy that usually only do snap-fit and then full lining and a bit of marking, these two probably had the most "extra works" among my model kits.

Sidestory: Local Lego Competition - part 2

So yesterday we were told move the lego building we've finished last week to a new base, so we did. And while at it, we added some last "improvisation" to make the building seems taller, and somehow it ended like this.

Kotobukiya Takemikazuchi Type-00R

Sooo yeah, I'm actually a fans of Muv-Luv (maybe not really since I haven't played Alternative, but I know the story :p ). I wasn't much of an eroge person, except when mecha is involved in it *coughbaldrseriescough*, and Muv-Luv doesn't only have mecha, it also have JAM Project!! XD

Gallery: Jegan on the Field

Model: HGUC 1/144 RGM-89 Jegan

These pics were taken half a year ago, right after I finished building the Jegan (I haven't managed to put the marking stickers on yet). I took a ride on my friend's car into an empty field nearby and took some pictures with my cell phone above his car. My friend told me to take some picture on the field itself, and at first I was like "nah..." but in the end I did it anyway. and I sure glad I did. :)

Sidestory: Local Lego Competition

Today I just finished my team's Lego model for a local competition in my college.

In case you asked, that guy isn't me, he's my teammate

The theme was "future city", but I think we went too far and made a space station instead LOL

And after years after playing with Lego, I was reminded with how sharp they were.
I accidentally broke one of the bridge when building it and the pieces cuts my ring finger. It bleeds =/

[4Koma] Wheels on the road

My first 4Koma after starting this blog!

It's very hard to keep the God Gundam standing above the Lotos, so I can't put a much more interesting pose for God Gundam =/

A video featuring RG RX-78-2's mobility and gimmicks showed up on Youtube.

My excitements multiplied!!! XD

RG RX-78-2 new assembly images - Head

More images of RG RX-78-2 assembly from Gunpla Secret Factory

The red camera/sensor on the forehead and the back of the head are red transparent parts instead of stickers. The eye parts are a clear piece.

More images of RG RX-78-2 assembly from Gunpla Secret Factory

The parts on the upper part are to be removed to be later used as the grip to the shield. The parts that sprouts out from the elbow are also to be removed, and then push in the parts above and below the elbow.

RG RX-78-2 new assembly images - Hand

[WIP] HGFC God Gundam pt3 - Lower Body

Sorry for the wait.

Let's continue with the last part for God Gundam's Work in Progress.
Starting with the feet

Normal feet build. The left has the sole panel lined. The biggest difference with usual HGUC kit is that the sole of the feet has different color than the base of the feet, but that was the original design anyway.

[WIP] HGFC God Gundam pt2 - Upper Body

Okay, I'll be honest. I'm still not used to taking pictures when building a plamo kit, especially if there's no trouble in sight (because I would be just enjoying the whole building process and forget much other stuff). So... yes, I forgot to take pictures in some of the process of building the upper body this kit, specifically the arms & shoulders. I'm really sorry about that.

Back to the building. Next is the upper body, starting from the Energy Multiplier (the generator on the chest that opens up when God Gundam is about to pull a finishing move).

The energy multiplier were supposed to be in yellow, yet the parts provided would result in only blue.

in this segment I will give a quick look of a model kits/figures that I recently had acquired. I might also explain the story the kit/figure are based on. Any kit/figure that appeared in this segment will most likely get a review in the near future.
