Gaijin Gunpla


Rather recently Hobbylink Japan started up its side project, Hobbylink.tv, as a way to offer those interested in the Hobby Industry a behind-the-scenes look at various companies and projects as well as more information on the products HLJ carries. The response has been fantastic and led to many discussions about what else we could offer.

When asked for my input my response was simple;
“Gunpla.”
I’m sure readers of this blog are well aware of the attraction of Gunpla and its enormous popularity around the world, which is why I mentioned it without hesitation. That and it’s always on my mind. 😉
After some discussion about what kind of videos we could make about Gunpla the opinion was voiced that we should just start at the beginning. Introduce Gunpla through hobbylink.tv to those who may not know about it and also offer those familiar with it something new to see.
As I am the ‘resident-Gunpla-builder’ here they asked me if I would be willing to appear in the videos.
Of course I would! I would love to introduce Gunpla to the world! I would love to be the face of Gunpla! (not really). But most of all, I would love Gunpla to be my job. And now, in a small way, it is.
And Gunpla TV was born.
Thanks to all you Gunplars out there for supporting Gunpla in all its various forms. This is for you!

    That was awesome. I'm super excited and a little bit jealous of your role there haha! You work well as a presenter, clear, concise, and likeable. I'm loving the direction HLJ is taking with Gunpla and I very much look forward to episode 2. Can we have some basic explanations of what's inside the box next please? Loved the time lapse EWAC Zack.

    @ZoiDieCT ArchAeA: (nice name!) Thanks for the compliment. Yes, the S2 stands for my initials; S.S.

    @G.G.: Thanks. I wish I continue to have my job. 😉

    @Tonzo: Thanks! To be honest I wondered how I would come across on camera but after doing a few of these now I am more relaxed and natural.
