Aizu KAI Additional Preview

Taking a short break now since my finger got a blister (the non-painful one) from the drilling work. ^^; I did have to hold drill bits (the sharp area) with my bare fingers. I guess it can't be helped.
Anyways, I managed to get the body built and sanded but the wing binders and armaments are yet to be put together.

UPDATE: Mod explanation here.

Crazy "Ice" Plan Underway (Preview)

Aizu: "I'm taller than you nii-sama."
Reborns: "..."

You've seen me do knee mods, now it is time for a hip mod! Not going into details yet but I can say that the hip mod doesn't look all that nice but it works. ^^;
Well, maybe if you have some putty and pla-plates you can do something better than me. XP

Actual details later after the superglue hardens and if I need to use some epoxy to reinforce the pelvis area.

Since that 00 body now is un-build-able, maybe I should transfer some of those still unused weapons and parts to a certain Gundam...

Robot Damashii Crossbone Gundam X-3 Review

Price 3000 Yen
Read the whole thing on my secondary blog here.
Note: Omake comic included.

The days are looking up so I guess its a good time to spend some time outside soon. Thus, I should cut out "those parts" around this week or else my plans are nothing but a puff of smoke. XP

HGAW 1/144 Gundam X Review - Part 2

This is a continuation of part 1 here.

Been playing too much online games and other important real life matters. Only one month for my semester break left and I haven't even touch Aizu yet. Then again, it has been raining everyday. Maybe I should do a straight build (without detailing) first (with my plans in motion too) and take off the parts for painting when the weather is good again.

The GX is actually quite fun to play with. As such, some "unusual" poses are taken which are near the bottom of this post. >D

Read on!

EDIT: Added another "pro" I forgot to mention; "It feels quite solid".

HGAW 1/144 Gundam X Review - Part 1

Price: 1800 Yen

Looks like everyone guessed right for my preview post. Obvious is too obvious. XP However, there is more than what the eye can see to that certain knee mod. Read on for the first part which encompasses the building process as usual as well as a how to make the GX's legs bend better.

MS Specifications:

MS Brief:
Gundam X AKA GX-9900 AKA GX is a Gundam that was created right before* the After War era and was found 15 years later by Garrod Ran who then became its pilot ("If this works, I believe in God!" ~ Garrod Ran). Unlike what you can already see from the boxart, a Gundam wielding an moon-powered BFG, it also has a bit system. This bit system is unlike the usual flying small stuff that goes around pewpewpew but is actually a whole army of mass produced version of the GX. Of course, you need to have a certain degree of skills and Newtype potential to actually do it.
*Technically, the GX caused the end of war and started the After War era. Watch series for more!

Notice Anything?

I'm kinda busy for the time being as well as preoccupied with a certain online game (Luna Online) since I'm playing it with my sister (a warrior and healer party combo). Anyways, I was thinking of doing this post yesterday but online gaming can really eat up your time, y'know? >_>

So, do you see anything different from usual (except this shot doesn't have the Satellite Cannon yet)? Virtual cookies for those who can. I know ZD will sure know straight away as well as those who have heard/read of my thoughts about this one.

First part of this review either tonight or tomorrow. Photos are done for that part so yeah.

Simple Omake #1 - Kamen Rider Den-O Sword Form VS God Gundam

Due to popular demand, here is an omake comic strip for Den-O VS God Gundam! It might not be as good as the usual stuff though since I'm lazy to fully edit it with effects and what-not (no text bubble, just text under photos like what Z usually do). However, I did try out some PS techniques from BD's recent post for some of the easier to edit images...

EDIT: Updated two photos.

SIC Kiwami Tamashii Masked Rider Den-O Sword Form Review

Price: 1200 Yen (!)

Wow, my first S.I.C. (Super Imaginative Chogokin) and its Den-O! Though it may not be the regular sized one, I feel it is quite close to them nonetheless - at least from what I can sum up from Ngee Khiong's review recently here (read all the 9 parts if you want).

This series of smaller scaled S.I.C.s are relatively new (as far as I know) and are priced very attractively. Because of that, I really couldn't resist buying one when this one came to the local hobby shop. Though Wild Chalice arrived first, I didn't feel the "want" for it, just in case anyone is wondering why I didn't get that one first. However, if they made the normal Chalice, well, that's a different story altogether.

Info regarding Den-O over here in Wikipedia.

Read on for the full review!

Oh Look What My Sister Found

Its actually pretty old already so the color is a little darker than when we just bought it i the past. ^^;

As for the coming posts, some photos are already taken but I'm taking my sweet time and doing other things in the meantime. Dang gaming mood and sudden storms (it rains practically every evening and today there was a very bad thunderstorm). XP

The GX is half done and I'm thinking of doing something special for the Satellite Cannon reflectors (forgot the name, if it has one ^^;) by using the spray I used that day. Should I?

I've been waiting for this! :D And I've finally got it! C:

Even since I saw that uber huge beam part equipped Muramasa Blaster on the RD Crossbone Gundam X-3, I was like, "I must get this when it comes over." and I did. The S.I.C. Kiwami Tamashii Masked Rider Den-O Sword Form was a side-buy (thinking of getting other KRs in this small scale series). Because of this different purchase (than usual), I had to skip the HGUC ZZ. ^^;

Well, that's all for now. Didn't build the GX yet (had some fun with Den-O first) but I guess I'll wait until my mood to build sets in (will so have fun with the X-3 tomorrow). I just feel like doing other things lately (like gaming... Oblivion with mods is quite fun, more fun that it was when it was just released).

Oh yeah, I really would like some C&Cs (if you don't mind) for my previous post. I'll probably make a one-shot name on it soon-ish since I think I have good enough foundation to make a manga draft. ^^

Note: Sorry if the title is worded wrongly. ^^;

Back from Palm Beach Resort & Digimon Xros Wars Begins!

That was sure a fun trip and those added by me in my FB account can see some of the photos of said trip already. :)

The trip was fairly relaxing and fun as I went with a group of friends. There wasn't really much of anything to do at the resort (except swimming and relaxing under the sun or going to the beach) but we had our share of fun for 3 days and 2 nights. We also went to a nearby waterfall and the coast (I think its called a "coast").

There was this totally cute cat which was at the cafeteria during that trip too which now became my new profile photo (on FB at least, may use it elsewhere soon). XD Yes, it is using my netbook there, really.

Also, a new season of Digimon has begun and it looks pretty interesting. Lots of gattai going around which some of you may like or not like. However, it does look promising. The subbed version is already out (I watched it RAW but t was quite easy to understand) so you guys should check it out too. Luckily someone is subbing it (or else I might have to watch another series in complete RAW again). ^^

Spray Painting is Actually Fun

For those who don't pay attention to the secondary blog, I recently (more like yesterday) try out spray painting. This is just a test try-out so perfection is not guaranteed but the results achieved was pretty pleasing for me. ^^

More here and here at my secondary blog.

HGFC 1/144 God Gundam Review - Part 2

This is a continuation of part 1 here.
Wah, looks like this review was a bit more popular/interesting than usual from the comments I've read since I kinda said a lot more than usual even for just the first part. XP

Anyways here is the second and final part.Nothing out of the ordinary for the omake scene since it may be something most of you would expect but nonetheless, hissatsu waza time. XD

Note: I just noticed I forgot to change my ISO settings from a previous outside-photo-session which required a bit of an ISO bump. This affected the photos a bit (including the ones in part 1) but hopefully you guys won't mind since I don't want to manually edit 100+ photos just to reduce some noise. ^^;
