[Completed][MG] MS-09R Rick-Dom Principality of Zeon Mass Productive MS - [Updated 25th December 2014]

Initially I wanted to save my free time to build the PG Unicorn, but since it's has "destined to be arriving by end of this month from HAW, I had no choice but to get this to kill some time. I had always wanting to get this, seeing that this guy was so popular among the builders as grunt units were the easiest to customize.

Side note here... Build Burning Gundam not included. Cos ppl still got mind blown that a gundam was actually hidden in a Dom from the 1st episode of GBF Try lol...

December Updates!

Last month of the year... then it would be a brand new year for 2015 haha... I have more spare time to build Gunplas now, but problem now is I have nothing to build!!!! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.....!!!!!! I was actually wanting to get the PG Unicorn and build it during this spare time but HAW said that the stocks would be coming in by end of this month. Did I hear wrongly? End of this month?!?!??!!

I should have pre-ordered them from HLJ, should have paid for it last Friday and have it ship out immediately EMS, and should have gotten it either since 2 days ago or the latest is today! Even GG Inifinite had gotten their stocks in more earlier too. What kind of logic is this =.=?

Ok end of my little rant (I had to vent it out) but I'm hoping that their stocks won't come in exactly on the end of the month but maybe a week before end of the year at least? So my time is kind of wasted, and I had to find alternative things to do for now... Even if it did arrive on the end of the month, I don't even know if I got the time again to build it as I'm resuming my part-time degree studies again next year, and school re-opening (my workplace) would be busy too, with all the new students coming in and all...

As I only have enough budget to get the PG Unicorn, so I'm not able to get any spray paints for the time being too so my DMS project had to be put on hold again... My 3-color rule for DMS has already been confirmed so I'm just waiting to get the spray paint and I can get to work on my Dark Unicorn Emperor some time around next year February I hope...

All that aside, if anyone could recall my recent blog post of my Beargguy F Family and Nightingale, A fellow Gunpla builder suggested to me that I should add speech bubbles to my kits. Actually it was my Beargguy F Family poses that I made that got this idea started and then followed by Nightingale. So I did a bit of work on the pics using Gimp and here's the end result.

Strict parents lol...
Inspired from 'Anaconda' song lyrics lol...
So yeah, I added some speech bubbles, and I made them more funnier lol... 

That's about it for this month, I will see you in my next blog update in January 2015! XD

[Completed][RE] MSN-04II Nightingale Neo Zeon Char Aznable's Use MS - [Updated 15th December 2014]

Finally gotten this kit that I always wanted, the gorgeous Nightingale =D

And also the first ReBorn 100 kit I have, and most likely the second biggest kit next to Neo Zeong. Bandai can't make this into an actual MG of it so that's why they came up with this new line whereby there's no inner frame but still able to present more details and also better articulation in it.

Like the Neo Zeong, I'll be working on this kit over the Saturdays at my workplace and I'll post all the pics when I've done assembling and before top coating.

I'm placing this on my work table for sure lol...

[Completed][HG] Beargguy F (Family) Mirai Kamiki's Mobile Suit - [Updated 12th December 2014]

This Beargguy kit never fails to impress me, and now it comes with a smaller bear. Such cuteness there awwww...!!!!

This was part of the Gundam Build Fighter Try series, new season lol... I'm still hoping Bandai would make a MG size of these, or the original Beargguy III lol...

[Completed][MG] RX-93-V2 Hi-Nu Gundam Ver. KA Amuro Ray's Customize MS - [Updated 7th December 2014]

It's a while since I last build my kits lol... I'm kinda back from my short hiatus of building Gunpla but won't be doing as much as I did last time lol... To start things off, I finally got this kit, which is what I wanted all along too alongside with Nightingale but sold out lol... I bought it at a promotional price at Hobby Art Work so it's quite worth the buy lol...

I do have some plans on customizing this as part of my Dark Mobile Suit project... But it's tentative, so it's not confirm yet lol...

November Blog Updates

Another quiet month has passed, and I have no Gunplas to build (or can't start building one due to lack of stuffs) currently. Though I have interest in getting Nightingale and still wanna start work on my Darkness Mobile Suit Project Kits, but I really wanted to secure the PG Unicorn first before buying anything else, so yeah lol...

But anyway for the past few days I had been playing around with Gimp (a free image editing software) editing some of my Holy Mobile Suit kit pictures.

This is the first image I did, for my desktop wallpaper lol.. Standard resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Click to enlarge
Then I had this idea of making my Holy Unicorn Emperor's psycho frame glowing lol...

Click to enlarge
Then I had an idea of redesigning an image for my Facebook cover pic lol...

I will try to find some time to re-design a new cover pic for my Facebook page and for this blog as well. That's pretty much the updates for this month, just having fun with photo editing lol... Next month will be expecting the PG Unicorn so hurray for that lol...

New Display Case for Holy Mobile Suit Kits XD

I bought 3 more new display cases for my Holy Mobile Suit kits recently as they are quite big and could fit in 2 Master Grade kits in it. =D Sorry I forgot to take pics of the package, but I will lave a link to the said product and here's some pics to look and get the 'feel' of it lol..

Model Cover Square (LL) Clear by Hobby Base from Hobby Link Japan

Re-locating them to new space lol... Yes, they are stackable lol..

After this arrangement, I now have 2 empty display cases that I could use to put in other kits in it lol..

October Updates

As you can see now that I have really slowed down on my Gunpla building which had already started since last month. I'm still in the midst of financial recovery (which I'm still able to survive lol..) and I'm still will be buying something over the next few months but not that much. I will be focusing on my new project, the Darkness Mobile Suit project, starting with the DMS-01 Dark Unicorn Emperor. Now this, as I mentioned it in my other blog post, is a whole new different Unicorn which I will be using the Banshee as the based without the Armed Armor XC and DE parts. I can still make something good out of it and will be giving it another Beam Javelin which I taken from my FA Unicorn.

DMS project aside, I'm quite excited for the release of PG Unicorn. I have placed order for this at HAW for the full set. That's right, the PG Unicorn and it's light set. Another item that cost a bomb like the Neo Zeong, but it's kinda worth it because it's PG lol... And I'm still wanting to get the Hi-Nu Ver KA and the Nightingale if my financial bedget allows, but most likely will not happen till next year, as I needed money for all these upcoming stuffs and not to mention that I needed to pay for my course fees for my next semester study lol...

Anyway, that's about it for now. I will update again next month lol...

[Completed][SD] BB RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex - [Updated 22 October 2014]

A SD kit bought from HLJ, another Unicorn variation lol... To be honest, I'm not really impressed with this original "Gold" that the plastic has given.. So, seeing that I have plenty of Tamiya TS-21 Gold spray paint, why not give it a better gold color?

Armor Girls Project MS Girl Unicorn Banshee Exclusive

Another MS Girl to accompany my MS Girl Unicorn, the Unicorn Banshee lol... This one's P-Bandai exclusive so it's kinda expensive to get, and also the last figurine to buy. As much as I like the designs, I still prefer Gunpla building =)

Still, many poses for this just because I'm less worried than the poses I did for my model kits lol...

Same as the MS Girl Unicorn, this also comes with parts-swapping hands and other accessories.

[Completed][SD] BB Legend Command Gundam - [Updated 10 October 2014]

Another SD kit which I had shown in my earlier haul. It was actually part of the Gundam Build Fighters anime and most importantly, it was built by Aila Jyrkiainen where she somehow got this kit from Takeshi Lori who was under disguise of an old man. That episode certainly made me laugh alot haha....

[Completed][MG] HMS-01 'Holy Unicorn Emperor' Unicorn Gundam Painted Build - [Updated 5 October 2014]

Project Name:
HMS-01 Holy Unicorn Emperor

- Holy Beam Saber x2 (At Backpack)
- Holy Beam Blade x2 (Eject-able when Light of Conviction is activated)
- Holy Armored Shield x1
- Holy Javelin Staff x1
- Pure Beam Magnum w/ Launcher x1

Special Ability (Normal Mode):
- Holy Magic Bolt
- Art of Holy Swordplay
- Light of Conviction (Awakening mode, amplifies all abilities)

Special Ability (Awakening Mode):
- Atonement (Absorb all energy from opponents and purifies them for it's own use)
- Holy Hand of Purity (Damages the opponent's internal frame severly)
- Flying Swords (All Beam Sabers become funnel-like and controlled by hand movement)
- Undying Conviction (Third awakening mode yet to be discovered)

This kit was made last as I was gathering some leftover parts that I had built from my previous Unicorn Gundams and other kits. Don't ask me how I came up with all this armaments name and abilities, they just came out of my mind, just like that lol... This should be the most number parts being swapped/added to it... You could consider this as kit bashing, since I'm adding on so many different parts to it lol... And I promised to myself that this kit will be epic (because it's the Emperor we are talking about) and the perfect way to conclude my HMS project.

List of parts used for this kit:
- Unicorn Gundam OVA as the base
- Manipulating hands from Sinanju Stein
- Chest parts with Gold Mane, Orange Psycho Frame, Armed Armor DE & XC from Banshee Norn
- Chromed Golden Split Horn from Phenex
- Hyper Beam Javelin from Full Armor Unicorn Ver Ka
- Water decal sheet (chromed gold color) from Unicorn Banshee Awakening Mode Ver Ka

List of Tamiya Spray Paint used:
- TS-30 Silver Leaf (Holy Internal Frame)
- TS-14 Black (1st layer coating)
- TS-83 Metallic Silver (2nd layer coating, for selected armor parts)
- TS-84 Metallic Gold (2nd layer coating, for selected armor parts)
- TS-27 Matt White (2nd coating after priming, for armor parts)
- White Primer Surfacer (1st coating for priming, for armor parts)

*Updated 20 May 2014: This kit will be placed last as I'm waiting for the MG Banshee Norn to arrive. (It has arrived already lol...) So once everything has been settled I will begin work on it earliest in around July 2014 hopefully... (Postponed till around Ocotber 2014).

I will be updating this post from time to time. So any latest pics I took will usually be added at the end of this post.

Latest Haul for September!

I haven't quite posting my latest haul in here lol... My last haul was the Neo Zeong which had sucked me dry.. I'm still in the midst of saving my money back again, so this haul is not much but mostly the leftover outstanding items that has yet to ship out.

Firstly, from HLJ, my regular hang out XD I'm very well-aware that the SD Unicorn Phenex is not chrome-plated gold unlike the MG Phenex due to high cost. Totally understandable for this, so I would be doing something about it ;)

Secondly, I bought this exclusive AGP MS Girl Unicorn Banshee from GKGundamKits website. This was my first visit to this website, and they deal with exclusive kits like the Premium-Bandai kits. Note that I had censored some of my personal details from there.

Lastly, I went to buy some spray paints and happen to pass by HAG. So I drop by take a quick look, and found what I want XD

Yup.. the SD Command Gundam what I was waiting for in HLJ (but was backordered lol)

That's about it for my haul this month =)

September Updates

How time flies so quickly lol...

Side-tracked a bit, I managed to secured an iPhone 6 Plus!!! Will be collecting on this Saturday at Marina Bay Sands Convention Center XD

Back on track, I can't buy any Gunpla for the time being till end of next month. As much as I wanted to get the Hi-Nu Ver Ka and Nightingale, but I had to take things slowly now.. And I'm still stuck on my Holy Unicorn Emperor build at the moment due to shortage of spray paint colors I needed, but that would be resolved quickly once I'm able to get more spray paint next week.

All that aside, my AGP MS Girl Banshee is currently on the way now... estimating about 2 weeks later I would be able to receive it.. and as for HLJ, I do wanted to wait for the SD Command Gundam but it's still showing backordered status.. If it's still not ready by next week, I will ship out whatever I have in my private warehouse and wait patiently on my next few orders in the next 3 months lol...

That's pretty much on my updates. Will update again next month! XD

A Free Bag From HLJ! XD

Syd from HLJ had sent me this bag in as a giveaway prize for showing the completed Neo Zeong. It was a late submission actually and I wasn't expecting to win anything but I did anyway lol... So it was kind of a pleasant surprise for me when Syd messaged me on Facebook all of a sudden =D

Curious to know what pic had I posted on their Facebook page? =P

Here it is! LOL!!! XD

August Blog Updates

Another month has passed, and in a month's time, which is in September, it would be exactly 1 year of collecting and building and customizing Gunplas XD

I have slowed down in collecting new released Gunplas for the moment, I'm currently low on money, so I had no choice but to cancel a lot of the kits that I really wanted, like the Hi-Nu Ver Ka for instance. Nightingale is still on in HLJ, but it's likely that I might cancel that too. Apparently the Neo Zeong had drained too much of my money so I'm kinda tight on my budget right now lol... But anyway, I'm still good, I'm still able to survive through, so not to worry on that haha...

As for my HMS project, I'm officially shelving my "Holy Emperor"(RX78-2) kit for now, making my Holy Unicorn back as the first original version. Since I had promised myself to make the best of this kit, I had to put in more resources and efforts into this one. I'm not entering GBWC by the way, I'm not into competitions, it's more of a personal decision I made lol... Back to the Holy Unicorn Emperor kit, I have salvaged many of the parts from my Banshee Norn kit and also will be applying primer for the first time. I needed a white primer but the distributor didn't have stock so I bought a gray primer to experiment it out. So tomorrow I will be experimenting it on a plastic spoon and will see how it turns out to be. But I will still hunt around for the white primer and a few other colors along the way.

I'm also bringing in the Metallic Gold spray paint just for the Holy Unicorn Emperor but for now I can't do much about that as I needed a black spray paint color to get the desired metallic finished. So that goes into the list too lol... I'm planning to bring in the Metallic Silver as well, but not this month as you know I'm tight on budget, so yeah lol...

That's all for this month, I will be fully focusing on building my Holy Unicorn Emperor kit =)

[Completed][SD] BB Legend Full Armor Knight Gundam

Another SD that I wanted, it was featured in Gundam Build Fighters last episode and it's an improved version of Knight Gundam. Although it doesn't shines like the Knight Gundam that I had previously (chromed plated silver), It still looks great nonetheless lol...

[Completed][MG] RX-0[N] Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn Exclusive - [Updated 7 August 2014]

Finally a MG Banshee Norn, as a P-Bandai exclusive =.=''' That aside, I like the majestic feeling of this kit when it's in destroy mode, especially the Armed Armor XC and DE, which is why I'm considering to add it to my Holy Unicorn Emperor kit.

Unicorn is no stranger to me, seeing that I had built MG of these many times already lol...

[Completed][HG] NZ-999 Neo Zeong Neo Zeon Full Frontal's Customize MA - [Updated 3 August 2014]

The big red machine has finally landed! (In my workplace that is =P) I will attempt to finish this up within 4 hours (Or less hopefully) and place it at my cubicle XD This Neo Zeong stands at the height of 86cm and has a total of 6 arms! Really is impressive lol... I would love to include this as part of my DMS project but I don't think I would have the money again to buy another one, let alone the limited space I had at home lol...

And of course I will clear up all the debris in here lol... =)

[Completed][MG] RX78-2 Gundam E.F.S.F. Prototype Close-Combat MS Ver 3.0 - [Updated 25 July 2014]

I temporary put my Holy Emperor kit aside for now, and do a straight normal build of this first. I needed some references as this kit has too many parts, plus I'm dealing with a MG Version 3.0 on top of it lol... I will get another of this kit soon once I have more of less confirm the final color assignment for my Holy Emperor.

Haul from HAW

I think it's been quite some time I had posted any haul pics XD and yeah.. MG Unicorn Banshee Norn has finally arrived! XD

I'm thinking of replacing the orange psychoframe with red (from the Unicorn Gundam of cos lol...) so normal build first, and some parts will be use to add on for my Holy Unicorn Emperor XD

And tomorrow I'm getting this XD

The long awaited Neo Zeong has arrived! (since last week actually lol...) This was taken in Hobby Art @ Work which is also part of HAG lol...
