Char Aznable Theme for The Gundam World 2013 Exhibition in Sapporo Factory

So, I saw Gundam Guy's post about the Gundam World 2013 Exhibition.

Char Aznable is the theme.

OMG!!! I heart CHAR!!!! >_<

But I guess I don't love him enough to drop everything and go there right now. Hahahahaha! <<-- Action Mask laugh.

Further reading into GG's post, I found the video was posted by Gtoys blog, which was in nihongo, which I don't understand because I'm too lazy to click the translate button, so I just scrolled down to the videos. If you can read nihongo, then feel free to browse Gtoys blog. Here's from Youtube.



One of these days, I'mma build me a Zaku helmet.

For my friends who are near Sapporo Factory and planning to visit there, I envy you - especially since this exhibit's admission is free.

I wish Manila featured big events like these. Meh.















WING GUNDAM Ver Ka and a Heartwarming Like from my Little Cousin

So I just realized that Ver Ka's are for standing poses. Well, that lot's a bit of a downer.

But I still love this model, the colors are so fucking bright! It's an awesomely candy colored figure! It stands out actually.

I'm still a way off from completing this though, the shield and the rifle are still waiting for assembly.

Well, I completed the gundam unit just days ago, and here's some annoying unartistic photos which despite the lack of focus, I like to show around. Some of it you've seen from my last post, I guess. Haha.

Like the Epyon, I posed him like Prince Cedie without his Wings.

Just posing him that way looks a bit awkward...

Much better!




Nice, nice...

"OMG, where's my V-fin?!"

Sitting pretty! ^_^


































































I tried doing what Gaijin Gunpla does on his models.
He absolutely stood there all day like that.































































While I was having fun posing him around (well, taking different angles of one pose is more like it), his v-fin keep falling off so I did the best thing and super glued it to that mofo of a head.

The decals are going to come in later, I read they were a pain in the ass to stick on, especially they were absolutely minute details. Seems exciting!

Yesterday, my brother celebrated his 20th birthday, and relatives came to party. One little cousin of mine, Deus, was excited to see my small collection and wanted to get his picture taken with the set. He was all smiles looking and pointing at the mecha and I could really see his amazement! And for that one brief moment, I could almost say, "This is why I build Gunpla." Here's his pic!

TOYING AROUND with WING GUNDAM Ver. KA

With vacations and get-a-ways happening and being planned, an on-and-off relationship with my model kits is inevitable. Not to mention I haven't been to managing my pre-orders. T_T

The Wing Gundam Ver. Ka I've been working on has already been postponed three times!

I'm just glad I had free time last Friday (my boss told me to skip work). I got to do Wing the whole day!

And because I'm such a slow noob worker, I only got to finish the unit - the awesome weapons and shield are left to be established another time....

So while those are waiting, I captured some noob shots of the Wing Gundam.
These are from my Instagram.

Panel lining - first of joys.

GUNDAM NOVELTY!!!

I was looking for Gundam t-shirts online and found great items!

I find UNIQLO's collection very likable.

Bandai×UT’s 2011 collaboration focuses on Gundam illustrations, resulting in the development of fashion designs based on select images from Gundam. The theme of this dream collaboration is a fusion of fashion and Gundam. 












































































































The graphics were drawn by known Gundam creators/artists Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Kunio Okawara, Hajime Katoki and Hideki Ohwada! Awesome, no?  Although, I wish they used heavier-looking models. LOL Check 'em out here: UNIQLO Gundam Illustration

So I also tried Multiply.

And BAM! Gundam Jewelry!















Not that I'm really buying. Hehehe.

SINANJU OVA vs Ver Ka

Remember how I went crazy for buying the MG Sinanju Ver Ka?

Well, I got crazier when Bandai released the MG Sinanju OVA - RECENTLY!

Gaijin Gunpla has reviewed it and even compared the two!

Here's the motherfucking link to his oh-awesome review:  MG Sinanju OVA Review by Gaijin Gunpla

Well, it turns out it will just be a matter of choice for a noob like me if I'm ever gonna get the model kit.

 Look at them! At first glance, you wouldn't know the difference.

Not that I'm all for the OVA's box art, but I can't deny how bad ass it is.
