Hey all! Sorry I haven’t been around for a while, but school (and Guild Was 2) has kept me far busier than I thought it would. So While I can’t get one of my backlogged reviews done, I am trying to stay more active! Recently, the Gunpla Expo World tour kicked off, and oh so many things have been announced that make my wallet weep! The first thing is up above, it looks like a preview billboard… thing…. for more Real Grade kits. And I would buy every one of those. Right now if I could. There’s some more gunpla goodness after the jump!
I thought about pulling an April Fool’s day joke. But I’m better than that! I’m not Valve… >->’ Anyway! I updated the Monthly Release list, so you can check on that here! Things of note: The Next Real Grade (Gundam Mk. II), the Master Grade AGE-1S Sparrow, and oh so much more!
It’s been a while since I did a news post, and I needed a break from the Strike Freedom Anyhow. Luckily, there’s plenty of interesting and cool stuff happening in the world of Gunpla Now-a-days!
Sorry about the lack of posts for almost two weeks! Been a tid busy here, but I finally got a day to myself here as I got a good 3 or 4 feet of snow outside right now. And that means I have a good day to myself to work on models! I’ve already finished one leg last week, and I’ve been working on the other (though more slowly, as it’s kinda monotonous now…) since then, and I’m almost done. I should have that review posted in the next couple of days (by Friday though, definitely). The Real Grade review I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but haven’t really felt like it all that much. And the Delta Plus will most likely be done for the end of February, Beginning of March. I also have the Fourth week of February off (it’s good to live in the North!), And I hope to have both reviews at least shot, so I can start building some more. I also managed to redo my Photo setup again, the first one was starting to get in the way. The new ones on top of on of my shelves in the corner of my room, nice and out of the way… but in doing so I displaced all of my Perfect Grades, and this:
I have to say, I’m surprised! Bandai’s definitely rolling out the Real Grade line quickly. The Next one, as you can see, is the Strike Gundam! I’m very interested in seeing this one as a finished product, I’m curious how Bandai put the RG touch on the Strike Gundam. I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on any further news for this!
Part one of my Review of the Real Grade RX-78-2 Gundam! I decided to make this two parts more so for time than anything else. Sure I could do this in one review, but that would be out in another month still…=/
I have to say, when I was building just the skeleton, I found this to be an immensely awesome kit! I noticed myself saying things like: “Wow!” and “That’s just too frikkin’ cool.”. Things my vocabulary has been lacking of late. I find it simply amazing what Bandai has done with something six inches tall!
*NOTE: This is only part ONE of the review. Just to avoid any confusion. I’ll probably say this a few more times. Maybe in all caps.
Finally got around to starting the Shoot for the Real Grade a couple of days ago. I think for this review, it’ll be in two parts. One for the Skeleton, and one for the Main kit itself (not for the amount of material for the skeleton, but the rest of the kit). It’s just a lot of material to cover for one post, and I don’t think I’d wanna read a REALLY big wall of text and photos (or write it!). I’m hoping (HOPING) to have the First part up by Christmas, and the second around new years (probably some time after, to distribute the time properly). But hey, this is ME I’m talking about.
And we finally get to see the RG Zaku II, in color! So far it looks terrific! If I’m not mistaken, Bandai’s going to release a normal Zaku II as well (That’s what they always do on new product lines, for the most part), and I WILL buy that. And This. Because they are beautiful. More Glory shots after the Break.
