Gaijin Gunpla

Thanks to everyone who donated last month for the chance to win the HG Full Armour Unicorn Destroy Mode Clear wow! I am grateful to receive such support and also touched to know that many people value the effort I put into Gaijin Gunpla. The lucky winner has been chosen and contacted. I’ll be sending the kit soon once the Golden Week holidays here have ended.

So let’s keep a good thing going. The kit offered up this month is the MG Turn A Midnight Moonlight Butterfly Version!

I was really interested in this kit but hadn’t gotten around to building it because I thought I should try to build the regular MG Turn A Gundam first and well, that hasn’t happened yet. I know someone out there would be thrilled to get it and that’s why it is appearing here.

Pop the lid off the box and you are greeted by a lot of special finish runners.





Even the included action base (Yes! There’s an included action base!) is a special pearl colour.

And you couldn’t make a Moonlight Butterfly if you didn’t have these.

These are some fancy wings but my pictures don’t do this kit justice so I’ll grab some from Bandai’s site.





That thing does look awesome.

Just like last time, to join in this, and to help me out while doing so, all you need to do is click the ‘Support Gaijin Gunpla’ button I put into the right sidebar right below the comments field.

That should take you to a paypal page where you can enter an amount to donate. I won’t set a minimum and all donations are equal so everyone has the same chance to win. After the month ends I’ll do a random draw and contact the winner and then send them the prize.

Thanks again to everyone who donated last month and I hope the winner enjoys his prize!

    I really don’t want to be that guy, but I feel like this has to be said.

    It’s not the Midnight Butterfly, it’s the Moonlight Butterfly. Please don’t kill me Syd-senpai…

      Response #1: But further down the paragraph I did write Moonlight Butterfly so I was correct 50% of the time.

      Response #2: But all the pictures are against midnight black background.

      Response #3: My bad.

    Hello Syd,

    just made my donation (obviously under my real name). It’s not much, but i did what I could to help someone who, despite never having met in person or even written to, I grew to consider (dare I say) a long-time friend.

    I’m following you blog since always (waaaay back before gunpla tv) and I feel obliged to respond to your call for help/support. 😉

    Greetings from Italy and keep up the good work!

      Thanks for your contribution and your kind words. After so many kits and a fair number of years I feel that I made a lot of good friends around the world through the hobby of Gunpla which is quite remarkable when you think about it.

    Hi There, I am Heri from Indonesia.

    I didn’t know this site is running by Syd from HLJ! What a surprise!!

    I know this site for long time, but I rarely access it until I am searching at google for My LED PG unicorn final battle version. I still hesitate to buy the LED Unit. Didn’t know will it affect the transformation since I never built an PG unicorn before. But after research, I am gonna to buy it, since there is a bargain in town. 20% discount for the LED unit if purchase more than 1 Million Rupiah (around 10k Yen) *droll*.

    and I had send you some cookies… it’s not much though… Hope it will help…

    Thanks for every review you have done, I will use them wisely. Teehee… 🙂

    Syd, you have always been my favorite gunpla reviewer; I only wish that I were able to donate more this month.

    Hi Syd,

    I want to do my part on donation too but it doesn’t support my country Malaysia. Anything you can do to alter it? Hope with my little donation can keep you going on

    Do drop me an email if you can, keep up the good work!

    Hi Syd,

    I think I’ve been following your site for 3-4 years now(OMG!) and you have definitely got me more into Gunpla and Gundam in that time than I thought I would be. I know I will keep referencing your site when I get back to my backlog of Gupla. So thanks in advance.
