Thoughts on Gunpla: January 2012

Posted by Tom on January 23, 2012

Oh Bandai. Just when I said I was going on a break, you come out of nowhere with these announcements that makes my wallet cringe… Anyways, on to news, I haven’t done these in a while haha. First big news, Master Grade Unicorn Banshee! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who saw this coming, but I’m also pretty sure that this is the OVA version since it comes with the claw and the cannon. (is it a cannon?) Still not sure if it comes with the beam magnum and shield. Pictures are not clear enough to see if the psycoframe will be in clear orange or a frosty orange. Since I haven’t picked up the Full Armored Unicorn yet, this will be a worthy replacement. This comes out in march for 5500 yen.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Posted by Tom on January 22, 2012

May good fortune smile upon you and other things to that nature. ^^;

Anyways, I’m pretty sure that you guys are waiting for several reviews at this point; the MG Delta Plus, HG Jesta, and others. Truth be told, I’m going on a hiatus in case you haven’t notice. There are several reasons for this: the first is that school is starting, and I really need to concentrate for this semester. The second is because all of my gunpla are currently packed away in preparation for the move my family is having within a month or two. Because they are packed away, I honestly don’t feel like taking them out again and reviewing them. Once we have moved and settled down and I’m not swamped with homework, it’s back to gunpla business for me. I’ll still be around commenting and things like that, but for posting stuff, it can be a while. I’m hoping to start again by mid February or spring break.

Again, Happy Chinese New Year. What is it, year of the dragon? Here’s to a fun and great year!

HG Jesta Complete

Posted by Tom on January 6, 2012

Sorry for the absent, but I have been pretty lazy at my house. Been enjoying the new year somewhat so I told myself to get Jesta finished by this week. It might look very nice in the picture, but there are some imperfections every where in the blue colors, and the shield has some paint crumple like tin foil but that happened during the topcoating process. Also my first time removing seam lines, but they’re still kinda faint haha. I’m going to do a review of this guy soon, Delta Plus is going to be delayed until the moving of houses is complete and I’m all settled down.

This month is going to be a heavy month for gunpla. Both HG Banshees are being release in about two days and MG Heavyarms EW is coming out at the end of this month. Probably not going to get those anytime soon, but I am going to be visiting my hobby store later to see if they have anything of interest ^^;.
