HGUC GM Sniper II's (Standard & White Dingo ver.) Accessories

Just realized that so far there's no blog have specified the accessories and differences of the HGUC GM Sniper II and it's limited White Dingo variant, so I'll explain.

Image taken from Gundam Guy

Based on the text on the picture on the middle-left, the standard HGUC GM Sniper II will have:
  • 75mm Sniper Rifle (standard GM Sniper II Sniper Rifle)
  • 90mm Bullpup Machine Gun (the SMS that was included on HGUC GM Powered)
  • Beam Sabres
  • Shield (the same one as the HGUC GM Custom)
  • A head that had the visor placed in front of the eye camera
  • A complementary left hand to hold the Sniper Rifle

Based on the text on the middle of the pic, the limited HGUC GM Sniper II White Dingo ver will have:
  • Vulcan pod on the right side of the head
  • A Middle shield
  • Long Range Beam Rifle (GM Sniper I's rifle)

I'm not sure if the White Dingo still get the rest of the accessories that are supposedly "replaced" (rifle & shield) or not.

Either way, it's been a while since I'm very hyped about a HG release. A definite buy for me :).

[Anime] Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse 3rd PV

Yesterday, Sattelight released the 3rd PV for the Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse anime.

As much as I loved the Muv-Luv series, I can't help but felt worried for this anime ;^^.
In this 3rd PV, it contains mostly what's already shown on the previous two PV, plus some talking animations, sans the voices. This gave me the impression that they haven't fully finished making other scenes, which is very worrysome because the anime is supposed to start airing next week, on the 1st of June.
Of course, it might be just Me being too paranoid, but with the recent firing of Muv-Luv series' illustrator, Miyata Sou, due to plagiarism; I can't help feeling a bit negative about all this :(.

Hopefully this is just me over thinking it, and Sattelight actually kept their aces hidden on their sleeves.

[Sidestory] Slow progress... And some incoming stuffs I go crazy for

A small progress with time from breaks during my last weeks of works for a while, flavored with guilt.

I have no idea what they're talking about

In other news, some kits that piqued my interest:

[Comic] Skeletal Horror

Umm, remember when I said that the next gunpla comics will be a traditional panel test?
Uh, ahahahahah, Nevermind!!

Model kits used in this comic:
- Bandai's RG 1/144 Gundam Mk-II Titans
- Bandai's RG 1/144 Gundam Mk-II AEUG (Inner Frame)
- Bandai's RG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam
- Bandai's RG 1/144 Aile Strike Gundam

Well in any case, I thought this up when I'm thinking about horror movies in the bathroom. Weird, I know. The idea is that something that latches on to you, the either crushes you or blow a hole through your body. Of course the idea was modified to fit the mecha theme.

I also thought about another horror monster, one that sucks your arms and head into your butt, and... ...I'll stop right there... and probably email that idea to the Silent Hill creative team.

[Gallery] RG Gundam Mk-II Titans part 1

Well it has been a real long while since I actually built anything. The combination of busyness, lack of interest, and lack of money really made the couple months felt stagnant "orz.
And then the Mk-II finally got released.

Have I told you before that Gundam Mk-II is my most favorite gundam design?
Well, Gundam Mk-II is my most favorite gundam design, to the point of havingthe MG Mk-II Titans ver 2.0 HD Color as the one and only MG in my collection.

I planned that I would get both color variation, and built the AEUG color first with normal panel lines to know and memorize the build, and then build the Titans color with silver marker.
Now, if you're a Gunpla Builder, then I'm pretty sure you know that the AEUG color variation of RG Mk-II got delayed in release and the Titans color got released first. Well, plan botched. ugh
So anyway, I got the Titans version first (and still waiting for the AEUG color here), and boldly attempt to panel line it with silver anyway. If you saw the previous post, then you knew that it worked, though I think I can work it a bit better if I knew the build much better.

I've pretty much finished the whole kit, though before putting on the decals, I took a couple of pictures, alongside with some pose tests:
