[New][Updated 26 Feb 2014] Neo Zeong???

Wow... Wasn't really expecting this lol... This kit should be massive, given the sneak peek that was shown to us back in Unicorn Gundam Episode 6 and it was made only in HG lol...

As if this is not enough, Bandai had released a BB version of this too lol...

[MG] GX-9900 Gundam X Satelite System Loading MS Part 01

You (and probably myself) didn't expect that I would be getting this... I had this thinking that Bandai might be releasing MG Gundam X Moah from Gundam Build Fighters anime based on this kit. So I'm getting this to warm up myself lol...

Wasn't expecting that the box is the same size as MG Jesta as well lol...

Febrauary Haul from HLJ

This month's latest haul lol... Not much but that will do, as I really wanted to get the gundam marker remover to ship out as soon as possible lol... I have another small pile (that consist of MG Sengoku =D) still stock up in the Private Warehouse, but most likely will have to wait till the month of March to ship them out once I get my hands MG Build Strike Full Package lol...

[MG] RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Titanium Finish Ver Part 03

MG Unicorn Phenex has arrived!

From HAG / HAW that is lol... Since this is one of the few fastest ways to get newly released kits few days after it's release in Japan, I decided to pre-order this Phenex from them than from HLJ to prevent past incident (the Sazabi Ver Ka was only managed to ship out on Monday and came in on Friday due to many reasons) from repeating again.

I have another Phenex, which I'm not sure whether to re-sell it or not currently, shipped together with my gundam marker remover and MG Gundam X (Wasn't expecting me to buy this right? lol) coming on it's way and will probably arrive next Monday..

And I'm still waiting for the MG Build Strike Full Package from HLJ =.=''' HAG did have stock of them and I was tempted to buy. But in the end I didn't, so probably I give HLJ another chance and more time to deal with it.

[MG] RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Titanium Finish Ver Part 02

I actually started work on the arms since 2 days ago, just that there's nothing much to show. so I just post it up now since I have more photos to show lol... I just hope the blue gundam marker can at least cover up the nub marks at the moment lol...

Can't really see the nub marks...

Holy Mobile Suit and some other Updates!

Quite some time since I made my last bog updates lol... Anyway, firstly I like to touch on my newly embarked project that I'm planning to work on, previously I did not have a proper name and all for my Holy themed kits and ever since I built the Holy Knight Stein, I had bits and pieces of ideas coming into my head that were kinda confusing recently at first but should be more or less able to sort them out nicely. So firstly I had named my project the "Holy Mobile Suit" project or can be called as HMS for short lol...

Anyway, my Holy Knight Stein was the first to kick off this project and I had given it a final official name which is now known as the "HMS-02 Holy Knight Stein". Comes with it's own model number too, isn't that cool? haha... I have 2 more kits coming up soon to join in to this HMS project and they are the Holy Wing Zero and Holy ReZEL Guard.

HMS-02W Holy Wing Zero
HMS-03 Holy ReZEL Guard

I will be working on these two kits in terms of it's re-coloring. No additional or swapping parts will be done for these two as they are were good enough as they were. However, I did have one more kit that was also included in this HMS project but still in the process of planning.

HMS-01 Holy Unicorn Emperor
This kit will be doing not much of re-coloring (I had already planned to spray paint it's Psycho Frame with gold color and whatever that is grey will be silver lol) I had lots of parts that are swapping/adding to it, including this Armed Armor DE.

This is obviously not Bandai of course lol... But this looks awesome with my Unicorn that I'm customizing so I'm planning to include this into my customization list lol... So currently I'm gathering all the leftover parts from my previously built Unicorns and doing some trial and error on it in between my 2 current customize builds.

And that is all the update I had for my HMS project. Moving on to my other updates, my second new cabinet from V.Hive had arrived yesterday! =D

This time with blue LED lights, just for lighting effects purpose lol... So I have more room to more model kits in it haha! XD

Display cabinet aside, I had been looking up more on Google to find out how to improve panel lining skills and nub marks removal tutorials these days. I'm still sourcing the tools needed to do all that so that will take a bit more time for sure lol... I actually had this intention to do it, but with the limited tools I had currently, I had to make do with what I currently had to get by. But that doesn't means I don't hear your feedbacks and all, just that I took note of it but still sourcing for it. So bear with me on that lol...

Lastly, with the imminent arrival of Unicorn Gundam Phenex and Gundam Build Fighters Master Grade kits, I'm really looking forward to get them. Speaking of that, I was kinda disappointed and pretty much pissed off with HLJ in regards to the MG Build Strike Full Package kit. I'm sorry that I couldn't get it on time as HLJ orders were kinda screwed up at the moment and they kept delaying the restock by a month. Now their status on the website indicate that it will restock in March 2014 which I'm really pissed off on that. I had pre-ordered it since December 2013 and it's initial release was set on January 2014. I was really excited about this, I am. when they changed the status to February 2014 restock I was really disappointed that I inquire about it. The folks at HLJ said that it could due to the fact that this was a popular kit or the manufacturer produced less than they ordered for. So I just wait then, since they gave me this reason. But few days ago they changed the status to March 2014 restock, I was really pissed off that I send another mail to them asking about it, they should be responding to my query tomorrow. Now I'm really disappointed that I had to wait for this long just to get the MG Build Strike Full Package =(

Ranting aside, that's about it for my blog updates. Quite lengthy post though haha XD

[MG] RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Titanium Finish Ver Part 01

This kit is simply too awesome.. I only made the decision to order it last December as I was still in the dilemma of whether to get it or not. But still, I ordered it nonetheless so I will enjoy it lol...

This is just my casual build (shaving and painting off nub marks included) before I get to work on my Holy Mobile Suit project lol...

[11][MG] RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Green Psycho Frame Exclusive Part 03 - Poses in Unicorn Mode!!!

I did managed to have some time doing some various poses for this Banshee in Unicorn mode last night. I didn't managed to do poses in Destroy mode yet but I had already transformed it so probably I could make it do some poses tonight lol...

And this is the first time I was so satisfied the fact that I can do much more poses on this Banshee because the parts stayed together really well. I hope this would be the same thing for my Banshee Titanium Finish Version lol...

[MB] ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam Metal Build Edition

I pre-ordered this one since around September 2013 through GG infinite website. This metal build, which I just realised, that it is an already assembled kit with interchangeable weapons and shields only lol... So it's only good for posing ~.~

Because I pre-ordered it from GG infinite (before I found out about HLJ or HAG), which was based in US, it really took almost a month and 1 week to get it over to me since it's released in December 2013. So after the MG Exia Repair II will be my last order from them..

My first and last metal build anyway, unless they release Metal Build version of Strike Freedom, I will re-consider again lol...

[NG] Elyn Hobby 'Kastrysha' (aka Kshatriya) Part 04

Not much photos today as I was only assembling the waist, which took me 3 hours to do so =.='''

Well, it's normal for a non-Bandai product lol...

Since there's few photos, I might as well do up a review for this kit (excluding Binders). Click 'Read more' to view full post.

Testing the LEDs... I know it's kinda late to do that but thank god they're working nonetheless lol...

[Update 1 Feb 14] Latest Haul from HLJ & GG Infinite... The Biggest!!!

Ok it might not be the biggest, because majority of the items I'm ordering were hobby tools, hence the reason why my shipment list is so long lol...

You might be wondering why is there an Optimus Prime in my shipment lol... Well I was also a fan of Transformers the movie, and I chanced upon this kit and were quite impressed by it's inner frame and the articulation of it. The tools I ordered were to further improve my kits and stuffs lol...

*Update 1st Feb 14: I'm wondering why HLJ is a bit slow this year... Perhaps it's because of their competition that they're busy with? Totally understandable if it's that reason lol...

*Update same day: Well, they finally shipped out.. I was getting worried that they might ship out on Monday but no lol... So I would be expecting them to arrive on Monday instead. Good timing, since I've taken off-in-lieu for Monday lol... 

One more thing which I had forgotten lol... My order for Metal Build Destiny from GG Infinite has finally shipped out!

And a valuable lesson learnt for me, and that's not to order items without checking other places (I learnt that long ago, so once my order for Exia Repair 2 has shipped, I will start placing pre-orders with HAG for items that are exclusive or special lol...

[NG] Elyn Hobby 'Kastrysha' (aka Kshatriya) Part 02

When things gets tougher and tougher... Well, I'm still determined to complete this kit, just that I will be taking a lot more time than usual lol...
