Limit Break!

Since I had the chance, I decided to get myself the new clan TDs. Being able to attack upwards to 26000 with the main Vanguard out of the box does seem promissing indeed. However, it doesn't mean it can compete well with the older, more diverse clans, so far. Getting burned by The End is one thing I'd like to mention.

The TDs focus on raw power and only the main cards got any abilities out of that (asides from the Aermo clones). Garmore (Gold Paladin) pictured above superior calls any Gold Paladin grade 2 or lower upon ride at the cost of 2 counterblasts. Thunder Break Dragon (Narukami) retires any of your opponents grade 2 or lower Rear Guards upon ride at the same cost. I personally feel that Garmore's skill should be "activate" or at least gives us the chance of calling a grade 3 considering it is a one time thing. Thunder Break Dragon's skill would be nice if it can be used in the Rear Guard as well. It would make having more than one slightly more meaningful.

Well, not to be so nitpicky, the new TDs are good for introducing new players to the game. The skills are easy to understand and remember. Adaptability for em' seems better according to the games I played with less experienced players when I lent them the decks.

That's all for now. I better get back to finishing my assignments at hand right now. D=

HGUC Unicorn 02 Banshee (Unicorn Mode)

Even though I don't particularly have time, here's a nice shot of the Banshee (UM).

Until the next post.

Zeydra Kick!

I wonder if this image is worthy of the group build kick. Hmmm...

PS: I don't have the AGE-2N so the AGE-1N was a close enough "replacement" for this action shot. XP

Qi Yue* (QY) BB 00Q Warrior Simple Review

*Name thanks to Len Shinogane's post.

Price: RM1X**
**May be cheaper or more expensive depending on locale.

Decided to get this when I bought the HGUC Banshee (DM) since I got a bit of cash coming back from selling off my excess cards. XP

I did want to get one last time (an original Bandai) but didn't in the end due to other, obvious, budget allocations. At any rate, lets see how this bootleg brand fares in my hands. Do note that the images are not as organized as before since I did this without much planning. I just took photos out of order as I build and play with the bootleg. Well, something slightly different, I guess? ^^;

Read on!

Temporary New Header

Somewhat want to make a "busy" header highlighting my list of "active hobbies" currently since I'll be putting them up on the blog. Well, I did call this blog "Random Stuff from the East" so by any means, it isn't limited to just Gunpla - for those who may think I'm suddenly taking a sudden shift in my priorities. ^^;

More updates and post on the way.

Coming Up Next

Finally got some time off (or you can say finally got a chance to make room for some personal time) this week. Of course the mid-terms looming isn't a pretty sight. Then again, since the test papers aren't your run-in-the mill sort (whereby you digest a few chapters of study) but rather you apply "what you already know" according to the weekly test. More skill and common sense dependent. Well, there's still a "normal paper" to tackle as well.

At any rate, I just finished building the HG Zeydra, HGUC Banshee (Unicorn Mode) and the one shown above. The BB 00Q above happens to be from a recent bootleg brand "Y". Can't read the Chinese text under the logo so "Y" it is. More on those later as photos just need filtering for some. =)

Until the next long post - after all this while. Might as well update the headers and such while I'm at it.
