Full Set Getto!

00gashaponteaser

Finally got the full set, since last Sunday… Got a total of 4 extras in the process, at least it beats the UFO catcher, where you don’t always get something. Just a teaser for now, even though I have a relatively free week, I have other more important things to do. I’ll do the rest when I feel like it.

Don’t ask for the extras, I know what I’m going to do with them. I wasn’t really paying attention to where Nena’s eyes were facing, so I apologize for the epic fail.

Yay, first try too. Maybe I’ll try for the rest next time. Less talk, some pictures.

And… that’s it for now. More pictures when I decide to get all of them.

Figure Releases #5

Well, some new news, and some updates on previously unconfirmed news.

First up, the most important piece of news. Kotobukiya’s Kousaka Tamaki -Temptation- is scheduled for a March release for 8,400円.

Fap to your heart’s content. News via Kotobukiya’s page on her.

Next up, Bandai Bender division is coming out with Lucky Star figures as part of their figure MEISTER line of figures.

Not bad, in my opinion. But you have your own. They’ll be released in Febuary next year for 6,720円 for the whole set. Info from AmiAmi’s page on this.

Last but not least, Konami’s 2nd wave of Light Armor Series Busou Shinki goes on sale in Japan today. Hopefully, I can pick these girls up at AFA. But for now I’ll have to be satisfied with getting the first wave from a local store, chipping away at my budget for AFA…

Bye bye money… These girls are retailing for 2,900円 each. News via 4Gamer.net.

And that’s it for this issue of Figure Releases!

Figure Releases #4

Nothing much in this edition of Figure Releases…

First up, Max Factory will be releasing this 1/35 scale action figure of the Scopedog Assualt Rane Custom from Armored Trooper VOTOMS Commando Vorct.

You can’t go wrong with classic mechas. This awesome looking Armored Trooper will be released in January next year for 8,190円. Max Factory’s page on it here.

Next up, Enterbrain is releasing this 1/6 scale figure of Eve Sakakibara from Mugen no Fantasia.

It looks so-so, but I have to say that is one nice looking sword. Eve goes on sale in January next year for 9,980円. News via Hobby Channel.

Moar Figures

Well, turns out figure manufacturers are in a rut recently, as they constantly need our financial support. To get it, they keep releasing figures which they know none of us can resist.

Stamp of Approval

Simul-post on both my blog and DannyChoo.com.

I got bored during the afternoon but wasn’t motivated to do my tutorial, so I decided to do this instead.


Approved?


I’m going to fail my exams if I don’t start studying now…

1/144 Exia Kit-bash

Well, I managed to work out a new formula this morning, which is…

(Boredom + Revision Period + Free Time) X Runs an anime/otaku blog = Random Post

Well, you can’t admit it’s wrong, but I can’t prove that it’s right either…

As I mentioned in the 4th installment of the 4koma, Exia got broken and is undergoing massive cosmetic surgery. So I decided to post what Exia currently looks like in the middle of his surgery, which has been going on for 75 hours at the moment, due to surgeons lacking tools to properly reconstruct him.

Feel free to critique my modeling and photography skills anytime now.


I decided to repaint the white part encasing the orb on Exia’s chest in metallic red, but I haven’t reattached the red parts on the sides of his waist. I also repainted the horns of his V-fin yellow to give him the standard Gundam colors.


Next up, I attached a cannon onto Exia’s right shoulder, and as you can clearly see, the part where the GN Beam Saber is supposed to be attached to is broken off, which is why I’m kit-bashing Exia in the first place.

Clearly, not a lot of progress being made…

Just in case you’re wondering, the green and yellow foot belongs to my HGUC GM Striker and the red foot belongs to my 1/144 HG Wing Zero Custom, who are currently pinned down by 1 metric gram of rubble and junk.

And here’s one to you experienced Gunpla builders, what else should Exia have? My goal is to turn him from close-combat specialist to multi-purpose mobile suit.
