I bought this for RM90 at Hobby Kingdom (Star City, KK, Sabah) and it was the very last box. Never thought I could get one but luckily I was. A big thanks to Evaritus Lau, once again, for this opportunity. :X
This is my 13th Gundam Exia and, well, that's quite a lot and I'm still missing the HG 1/144 GN-Arms Type E, NG 1/100 Gundam Avalanche Exia, MG 1/100 Gundam Exia (Normal), MG 1/100 Gundam Exia Trans-AM (only if I can get that 80% discount...)... yeah. Not really going to gun to get them all but just those I come across. Not crazy enough to go all out. XP
Gundam Exia, one of the most shown Gundam on this blog needs no introduction anymore. It is piloted by Setsuna F. Seiei and it comes with seven swords. One of the most extreme sword motive Gundam to date, if I'm not mistaken.
This first part covers the box, box open, articulation and gimmicks. Action poses and the conclusion will be covered in the next part. Most of the photos were taken in a room at the Promenade Hotel Apartment before my camera was sent off. So, you can see the annoying black spot at the following photos. ^^; That also explains the lack of comparison shots minus the mint bottle which I bought while I was there.
EDIT: Forgot to insert neck shot in this part.

My Second Time, And it Felt Better
Note: All photos were taking with my Samsung Champ(ion) phone since my camera was being used elsewhere.
Taken on 24th December way before 12 noon. I left and went back to the hotel after I got my 2 Robot Damashiis and 1 SIC Kiwami. ^^;

There were a few shops that took my notice while I was at Kota Kinabalu (KK) last week and bought a number of stuff, even some that are slightly overpriced but not easily found over here.
EDIT: Forgot to state here but have said it before on FB... Thanks to Evaritus Lau (AKA sbhboi) for telling me about Hobby Kingdom, Hobby Densetsu (sadly closed during Christmas) and Revo Toys (became member only since there was not much there yet) at Star City. ^^ Too bad we weren't able to meet up. I was able to go to the Kirameki Maid Cafe at Star City as well. Hm, should put up the photos for that.
Due to the black spots I've stated before, I've sent my camera away on servicing. So, expect less posts from me or not. Considering how well my phone camera performed for the 00 Qan[T] quick review, I still can. Then again, I can just use my previous camera. ^^;

Although not as complete as I would like it to be, I feel it is quite done, done so I shall end it here.
Taken with my current camera, however, I realized I really need to send it to Canon for servicing now as the black spots are really obvious. I'm quite sorry about that though but I hope you'll enjoy the final part of the review.
For those curious at how bad my camera is in now... well...
The blue screen test. Open a completely blue picture on your computer monitor and take a picture with maximum zoom. To my not to happy further realization, it was worse that I initially thought. My camera shall be MIA for a while and I hope I can send it for servicing under warranty successfully.
FYI, the black spot has been around for a while already but most of the time it is either noticeable or seemingly disappear after a while. This time, that isn't the case. Ah well, wish me luck guys, I'll try to do it tomorrow, or rather, later today.

This is what happens when you're bored and misses an unportable gaming system.
PS: Christmas is tomorrow! If I can't wish it properly tomorrow then I'll say it now.

My aunt and mother decided to go to Sabah this week (21st-26th) so I won't be around during that time. If anyone wants to meet me (though no guarantees since this is a family vacation), I'll be around the KK area staying at the Promenade Service Apartment.
The only Kingdom Hearts game I've yet to finish, minus the first game's Final Mix. I've played Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories (GBA), Kingdom Hearts 2 (and Final Mix+), 358/2 Days and Re:coded. Currently playing through Ventus's story in Birth By Sleep.

All the following sketches were done a short while back within the lapse of 2 months like that. Found em' while sorting out my sketches and decided to scan them. ^^

A few changes are also in, especially with the browser I'm using. I'm using Google Chrome now (wished it was easier to shift between my 2 main Gmail accounts for Google though). I still use Mozilla Firefox, but I've decided to use the other less resource eating browsers for this old computer I'm still using. Other than that, my mother have decided to upgrade the internet line and we are now enjoying 1Mbps worth of speed. :) Even though it is still Streamyx, there seems to be a good margin of improvement in the downloading department especially. Darn, need more space now.
Now initializing promised posts, contest research, eventual non-stop gaming, unwatched Anime, possible long storyboard sketches and merry events.

I might/will post some short quick posts from time to time on my secondary blog if anything comes to mind. I like to call this an "offloading" process since I tend to think too much whenever I study and whenever there is an exam nearby. Nonetheless, I'll still be in a hiatus for now although I can't really call it a real hiatus. ^^;
*back to study*

Okay guys, since I'm feeling like it today, I'm going to share something I did around 5-6 years ago which still exist within the histories of the internet. It may be funny, crazy or totally WTF. Nonetheless, enjoy my past creations. XD
Note: You may need to click open the image to read some of them.
Time flies real fast and the trip to Singapore ended, but it was worthwhile. Going to Singapore really made me realized how different another country is and how much my own country still have ways to go. At any rate, let’s get going with the last posting even though the photos are mostly from my phone. There are also details on my loots at the end of this post. No large “thumbnails” this time though. XP
