I have just finished downloading the SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online game installer overnight. So here I am very eager to see this game that everyone is talking about… I only got disappointed because, as I have expected, this is not available for us here in the Philippines. I hope someone has a workaround for this. Anyway, since this was a North America release, then I figured it will only be available to those living within the same area. So when I registered I tried saying that I live in North America. But I think they check from which international gateway we are coming from [geek stuff LOL]. Well in short, I really think we could not play this awesome game… Oh well back to Chinese, Japanese and Korean servers for some of us haha!
**NOTE** — This guide is OLD! this was made for the North America version under OGPLANET… this is not the SEA (south east asia) release

I know that many of us has a wishlist of Rare Gundam Model Kits, Limited Edition Kamen Rider Figures, Old School Transformers and many more stuff. And the only place where you could probably get them is in JAPAN. Where else? The home of all the stuff we are going crazy for! Thank god there is this one place where we could go to ask help – WISHLIST TOYS! They can handle and feed our desires haha!

The funny thing about some people collecting Gundam kits is that they often have the money to buy the Model Kit, but do not have the money to buy the display cabinet… Haha yes we are guilty with that crime 🙂 I am really trying my best to display them…. But treat them as though they are real people and think how lonely it is to be in a cramped position. Some are left to stay on their boxes to save space…
Looks like a refugee camp to me

Our Gundams have really piled up, more commonly referred to as BACKLOG. Been busy at work lately (not to mentioned Facebook browsing and network games) that we hardly finish one Gundam kit a week. Well our record recently is one Gundam kit built in 2-3 weeks hahaha… Maybe because lately we do not rush building. We really take time to clean the nubs, detail parts if possible and enjoy the build. Unlike when we started that we can build one PG Gundam in 10 hours. LOL That was really fast because we did not really care about the NUBS that much… As if all that matters is we finish it ASAP haha… Now things have changed. I guess every Gunpla Builder goes by this stage. 🙂
I always separate the boxes of built kits and unbuilt kits. Previously they were piled up in one place that is why it became confusing which ones are we going to build next.
Some of our backlogs… Recognize any kits that you have?

Another day at the Customs Office… Corruption… Greed… Grrr… How can we enjoy shopping online when this f**kin people like the one below and more of them at their office are preying on us innocent people. I have experienced this myself and it sucks because just when you thought you saved a lot then comes Philippine CUSTOMS.
here is a little story of how inconsistent this monsters are….
It is in tagalog-english mode so I am sorry for our foreign readers…

We managed to find this little shelf organizer which can be used as an ALTERNATIVE SD Gundam Display Base at a currently running HANDYMAN sale at Robinsons Galleria. The price of the product was 749.95 pesos. But since it was a sale, it was offered with 90% discount. So that makes it 75 pesos each. I was really looking in that sale for something to use as a display stand. And we did find one! There was only 5 left so we just took them all. It was a lucky find. Special thanks to the man who was carrying one of it for pointing us where it was stacked.
If there are HANDYMAN outlets near you and it is on sale, look for this item because it is worth it.
Sorry for the dirty white color haha… I have not yet cleaned it. I was so happy to take photos I forgot to clean it up first 🙂
It has 3 levels. About 14.25 inches long and 9.5 inches wide.
I already measured it to make sure it fits my cabinet, and know what? it fits!

We always thought that using services like LBC will ensure you that you get your beloved (not to mention expensive) toys and model kits safely to your home. But it seems that we always thought WRONG! This incident happened multiple times already within my circle of forum friends. They’ve actually claimed to have experienced the same STUPID LBC treatment done to the kit below. This is the first case I actually saw a photo. Poor thing mishandled by some stupid LBC employee… Some people just do not know how to value property.
D*mn it makes me so ANGRY…

Yours truly is currently on vacation. Andito ako ngayon sa BAGUIO! yahooo! haha I tried looking for a hobby shop here pero wala… Now I know bakit ang mga taga-Baguio eh naghahanap pa ng Gundam sa Manila. Hay naku, hanggang dito pa naman sa Baguio GUNDAM pa rin iniisip ko… ADIK!
Oh well, habang naglalakad ako, naisip ko… sana may Gundam din dito katulad sa Odaiba, Japan…
RX-78-2 sana andito ka rin! malamig din naman ang climate dito sa Baguio…

I bought my first gundam model kit last year (2010) around the month of May. Red Frame Astray was my first kit. Confused pa nga ako between Shin Musha (with stage) and Astray. But in the end nakuha ko rin si Musha nung talagang ADDICTED na ako sa gundam.
Here is the picture of my Red Frame Astray nung araw na mabuo ko sya. I took 2 days to build it since takot ako masira. First time eh.
