Crossbone X-1 Cloak

Since Blade.requested for it last time, here's the best I could do with the equipment I can use while at my apartment.

The background box is just a bit bigger than a standard A4 paper while the width of the cloak is only a bit longer than a standard A4 paper. The rest is up to your imagination bro. ^^; Uploaded full size for best effect.

Spark Gundam Rough Build Setup

Next up... Spark Gundam. Just a minor part moving here plus an idea of how the backpack and left armguard will be. Hmhm. (Actually put this up in FB for a while but decided to cross-post it here for some content over my blog. ^^;)
TBH, I need a 00 Qan[T] body if I were to try modding this guy out.

Roughly, this is how it will be but I can't really use the 00 Gundam's body even though it is possible. It adds more work than necessary so I'll be waiting for Gao Gao to release their 00 Qan[T]. Who knows, I might even make a dual-wing-binder 00 Qan[T] for fun along the way too. =P

The Spark Gundam design goes like this;
  • Part of the Exia family, thus is focuses on melee and speed as well.
  • Incorporates latest GN technology by utilizing a miniaturized Twin Drive in the chest location.
  • Backpack wings are inspired by V2 Gundam, which the Spark Gundam is overall based on asides from Astraea-Exia-00-Qan[T].
  • The left arm has a prototype armament - GN Beam Shield. It can be a beam shield or a beam vulcan. The vulcan can used to form an unexpected beam saber as well.
That's all for this random posting~ Hopefully I can make this build a reality within the near future although I think I can only do it sometime next year rather than this year. But, who knows? Heng Kim Trading, a local shop, has most of what I need to do it now...

Swinburne Club Recruitment Drive Semester 2 2011 (Simplified)

On 14th and 15th September (Wednesday and Thursday), Swinburne Sarawak Student Council (SSSC) held the club recruitment drive again. Overall not so many people came to the Auditorium, the usual room it is held at, for those two days unlike before. However, our club booth - Swinburne Anime & Manga Society (SAMS) - was livelier than usual even if we didn't get many new members this time around through this event.

On the first day, our display was simple and rather limited. Here is what I donated for the first day. Sorry that I haven't made the omake on them yet. It may be another "fishing" story.

On the second day, we had so much and extended the table a lot! There are more photos but they aren't with me as one of the committee was tasked for that.

For the second day especially, I did something either totally interesting or absolutely mad. I had fun with it and it added publicity for the club as well as made the overall area more interesting. Well, somewhat. Took quite a number of photos with random people because of that. >_>

That's all for this simple post. Night classes are easier to doze off in and sleep is always good to have. Maybe I'll edit this post with a bit more stuff after this when my friends' photos are up. :P

More Stuff To Do

Looks like I'll be busier than usual for the whole of this month asides from the Maid Cafe event on the 23rd September 2011. Those in Kuching, please do come although the second day (24th September 2011) is canceled and maybe brought foreward to Friday night (possibly at 5-8pm). More on that once I confirm this sudden needs of change.

On random news, I randomly obtained this when I went to KFC with my parents. Currently using it for my netbook pouch although a bit tight since mine has a jutting battery pack.

We had an interesting team building activity during the tutorial today. One of the groups made a sort of tower of life which looked like this at the top. Basically, each group that was randomly assigned by the lecturer must make a sturdy tower out of newspapers for today's tutorial.

I have night classes this semester due to one subject having a part-time lecturer. What do?
Unfortunately for the tutorial class tonight, the aircond was leaking like a waterfall before we turned it off. Why aren't you fixing this Swinburne? From the looks of the table and floor underneath it, it foes seem to be a long time problem already. :/

There is also going to be a club recruitment drive at the Swinburne Auditorium again this Wednesday and Thursday. Swinburne Anime & Manga Society is gonna take part in it with a booth. There might be a bonus showcase of cards on those days by our new member this year.

Until a real post next time. XP

"Something" Came in the Mail Today

I can't show you a photo of it, not yet anyways. I was trilled this time when I suddenly got the package, by Pos Laju. Fast but yet never call when they arrive at the gate.

As for what it is, I'll hint it is clothing by the very least. This is just a filler post since I got too busy with the new item to set up the review post I was planning for today. Whoops.

Until the next post~

Gao Gao (TT Hongli) HG 1/144 00 Seven Sword/G - Impression

With just this single image, a full review feels redundant now. Okay, I'll still do it regardless.

Based on this photo, the Gao Gao 007S/G has an incredible polycap strength - being able to hold the GN Buster Sword II without much effort asides from needing a stand to stablize the body. o.o
This is actually attributed to its hard and tight polycaps which do seem to be doing the job and more greatly, to my pleasure even. I couldn't manage this without support for the original Bandai release believe it or not. Very interesting, no?

More later.

Gao Gao (TT Hongli) HG 1/144 Arios Review

Price: RM1X~RM2X

I didn’t really expect to make a review on this model kit since I initially lost a part (then it was luckily found) so it doesn’t have the proper photo-shoot for a full, usual review. However, someone did request me to do one and I decided to do one, at the benefit of further using my new phone’s camera though. Unlike the review on the BB Sinanju a few weeks back, this one is completely taken through my Samsung Galaxy S II‘s camera.

Please take note that I did not detail this model kit much due to the fact that I plan to do something to it later on although not within the near future. The most I did was paint the clear parts red and minor panel lining.

Note 1: I got this model kit as a leftover from the GG HG 1/144 Arios GNHW/M from a fellow blogger and friend - Souji Shinogane.
Note 2: It doesn’t have the display base because of that. So I’m using an action base also from TT Hongli/Gao Gao which works very well.
Note 3: You can refer to an older quick review on the Bandai version.
Note 4: Being very close to the window doesn’t fare well for the phone camera sensor. ^^;

TTGG 007S/G Complete (Ninja Build)

Just finished it an hour ago and right now I'm on the verge of going to sleep. Nonetheless, here it is!

The one thing that makes this one annoying to build was its really tight and stiff polycaps. However, that brings an interesting benefit that can only be felt after you complete it which I'll cover in its eventual review.

Until the next post!

This Month's Haul (Early September 2011)

Decided to get a new, "shinier", gold and silver marker by Uni Paint. They are oil based so it won't come off easily. Bought a sanding file too which was relatively cheap. Thinking that it will be important once I start to do something big later on (once the "pieces" are in my hands).

Two 007SGs from Gao Gao for a future mod build but I'll build it as normal first like the others before it so stay tune for another bootleg review~ And yes, I do already own two original Bandai ones beforehand. I mad. The BB Wing Gundam EW should be obvious too. Darn, the box is smaller than I thought yet quite thick! :O

The TT Hongli action base prove to me it was durable enough (to hold the Hi-Nu Gundoom up) so I bought some more. Good for mass need of stands which I'll be using them for. I really do prefer my Gunpla to pose dynamically to give a more "its alive" feel. =)

Semester 2 starts next week and there should be another post soon on something I didn't think of reviewing beforehand.
