After a week-long holiday in which I returned to my home and native land to see family and take a break from the busy pace of Japan, I have returned to the land of Gunpla eager to get out my side-cutters and snip plastic.
ASM was in town the day after I returned so we got together to chat about life, gunpla, and who would buy the next round of drinks. We met in our usual stomping grounds of Akiba where he handed me my lovely 限定 ANA 00 Raiser. It is indeed lovely.
Our first stop was Yodabashi Camera where the display case held some new and up and coming Gunpla kits.
I actually snuck this kit into my luggage and had it half assembled before having to stuff it back in my luggage for the trip home. Once home I finished the build. Sure there’s some clean up to do, and I will have to decide whether I want to paint this kit or not. I do know that I will be doing something to that three beam saber hand, though. This picture reminds me of the Turn-A Gundam. The Beginning Gundam has awesome articulation and seems to be made up of a bunch of triangles. Triangle Turn-A?
Both these kits are scheduled to hit the same day and I want a crack at both of them. So much Gunpla, so little time. The gold foil on the HGUC Sinanju looks pretty sharp.
After Yodabashi Camera we wandered over to the Asobit City and took in some great customized kits.
Gouf lineup. Now, ma’am. Can you identify the Gouf that attacked you?
Here’s a cool looking MG Full Armour Gundam. I think I have officially seen enough of this kit now.
And a well-done MG Musha Mk-II. I can appreciate this.
So now it’s back to Gunpla and regularly updating this site with cool kits, builds, and other things I (and I hope you) find interesting.
