Gunpla News, Birthdays, and More!
There is SO much stuff coming out that I need to get. Like. A lot. Probably too much. Loads of new Gunpla, the PS Vita, probably going to grab an iPad 3 when that comes out later this year…
But first things first! I got around to updating the Monthly Releases list a couple of days ago, so you can check that out here! I also finally got around to updating the Future page too! There’s some other news and info just past the gap, if you care to read on!
The Duel Gundam Assault Shroud! I fell in love this Master Grade redesign the instant I first saw the line-art for it. I’m not really a big fan of the SEED series that much, but the mobile suit designs are pretty damn good! Bandai is also releasing Master Grades of the rest of the original Gundams from SEED, so I finally get a MG Blitz Gundam!=D
The details look amazing on this kit (Click to enlarge photos!) and the articulation doesn’t seem too bad either. I even like the color! =D
It’s arsenal is impressive and it has a damn big box to fit all of this in!
And the Box art even looks cool! Dammit I feel a pre-order coming on… =|
Next up is the MG Gundam AGE-1 Normal. I can’t say I’m a real big fan of the mobile suit designs from this series so far, but I really like what Bandai did with this.
They added the right amount of details to it, but didn’t go overboard. I’m probably gonna end up getting this, but probably at a later date, if nothing else.
But now onto the more important thing: Birthdays! This blog is two years old as of January 29th (when I made my very first post). I also have my birthday on February 10th! I’m probably going to end up celebrating both on my birthday, it’s just easier that way!
I have a lot of things I want to do with this site, including reformat my reviewing process. I think it’s a bit long-winded, and probably more complicated than it needs to be. To shorten things up, I’ve decided to get rid of most builds in the reviews. That’s something I’m not entirely happy with, but assuming you need to know how EVERY Gunpla kit is built is insulting your intelligence. I eventually want to have a build section in every review, but I kind of want to experiment with making Build videos at some point down the road to keep the length of reviews shorter. I also have goals to post more regularly, seeing as me disappearing for a month or so is becoming a yearly tradition around these parts… ^^; I also hope at one point to break past Gunpla and do other sorts of reviews on here (Figures? More models? Who knows!).
I also have to consider that at some point this blog is going to have to go south. I really hope it’s not anytime this year, but I plan on finishing all the reviews I have to do before even considering ending this thing. It gets kind of tedious some times, but actually think I enjoy it more now. I used to have a lot of enthusiasm for this blog, but it’s unfortunately had to take the back seat of a very long bus as of late, but I hope to change that.
I was listening to this song while writing this, so it might sound a little inspirational… =3
P.S. The Unicorn Build is going kind of slow right now, so I might just have to review something between the lulls in building.
