#3002 / Super Robot Chogokin // Mazinger Z

For the almost 10 years that I have this blog up and running, including the great reset of 2018, I have apparently never featured a single Mazinger Z figure either as a CATALOGUE Entry or even as a featured review. That's kind of a shame given Mazinger Z is a mecha classic. And so, in … Continue reading #3002 / Super Robot Chogokin // Mazinger Z

Box Art Extravaganza: HG Gundam G40 [Industrial Design]

With the twilight of the Gundam 40th Anniversary comes the dawn of the Gunpla 40th Anniversary celebration. And to act as the transition piece between these two celebrations, Bandai Spirits will be releasing the HG Gundam G40 [Industrial Design] on December 14. I was always curious on how the packaging of such kit would look … Continue reading Box Art Extravaganza: HG Gundam G40 [Industrial Design]

Let’s Talk About “Mashin Hero Wataru" and NXEdge Style

Some time this year, I wanted to write a blog post to help me decide which line to get for collecting the Mashins from Mashin Hero Wataru and its sequels.

Finally at My Scale! The Robot Spirits ⟨Side MS⟩ Perfect Gundam ver. A.N.I.M.E.

They already have the 'revive' HGUC RX-78-2 Gundam and it even appeared in Gundam Build Fighters and being used by Takeshi Iori. In any case, Tamashii Nations has us covered with this Perfect Gundam figure. To those still … Continue reading Finally at My Scale! The Robot Spirits ⟨Side MS⟩ Perfect Gundam ver. A.N.I.M.E.

Because I’m Stuck at Home… Work-in-Progress #1: HG Gundam Local Type

I finished building my HGAC Gundam Sandrock some time last week and was teasing this guy as my next build. Well, I contracted conjunctivitis of the left eye (or sore eyes) yesterday and I was recommended to sit out the rest of the week at home. Looks like I'll have no more excuses to build … Continue reading Because I’m Stuck at Home… Work-in-Progress #1: HG Gundam Local Type

Plastic Crack: NZ Industrial 1/35 Riesen-Panzer IV

As far as this hobby goes, I have built mostly Gunpla or other mecha-related model kit. So I'm really curious to build one of those more grounded models similar to the likes of Maschinen Krieger. Unfortunately, these require skills beyond me, or time that I don't have the luxury. But it looks like I may … Continue reading Plastic Crack: NZ Industrial 1/35 Riesen-Panzer IV
