|May is just about to end, which also means that it’s already June, which also means that the HGBF Gundam Tryon 3 is just days away from its release (i.e. June 4).
As previously mentioned, two copies of the kit were pre-ordered with one permanently in combined mode while the other for the separate modes of each machine — which is a good segway to a related story.
Now most online stores restrict each order of this kit to one copy, with HobbyLink Japan being no exception. However, their system kind of permits updating the quantity to two copies to which this collector did. Unfortunately that led to a temporary account suspension though it was easily dealt with. Eventually cancelled the pre-order altogether and went with AmiAmi instead, which legitimately allows multiple copies.
|Started this build around November 2014. Six months later… by the end of May… it’s finally done.
This is the third-party HG Gundam Geminass 01 from Dragon Momoko. Extensive coverage has already been made for this kit so documenting the build isn’t much needed. Besides, entries would’ve taken forever.
Thoughts about the kit will be covered in its future CATALOGUE entry, but what’s exciting is the build that will follow. Continuing the Gundam Wing-related builds will be the RG Wing Gundam Zero EW. For this build, the "Drei Zwerg" weapon parts, as well as custom water slide decals have been acquired.
Anyone want to bet how long this guy would take?
|Kotobukiya has opened a product page for their upcoming 1/100 Murasame Liger figure under the new Zoids Aggressive banner. The line will present a different play pattern from the original Takara Tomy releases, as well as their own HMM line of kits, by being ready right outside the box.
Murasame Liger will be 220mm long (seemingly up to the tail) and features a fully maneuverable Murasame Blade. It’s also very articulated, with an opening cockpit gimmick and deployable pile bunkers at the front leg units.
Here’s hoping that Kotobukiya also does Blade Liger and/or Liger Zero under the same line.
|When the Bandai Hobby Online Shop exclusive HGBF Cathedral Gundam was announced, one thing came to mind. Do a color palette change to make it look more like the Denial Gundam.
Gundam Build Fighters Try mechanical designer NAOKI then tweeted an image of both mobile suits side by side. Did a digital color change on the Cathedral Gundam to see how it will look like in the proposed colors with the Denial Gundam and this is what turned out.
The color scheme actually works! Now the problem is looking for a spray can with a matching color. Unfortunately, using an airbrush is out of the question due to time and space constraints. The HGBF Cathredral Gundam will be open for pre-orders starting May 29.
