1/100 Pink Zaku Warrior Live Concert (Lacus Clyne Custom) C3xHobby 2007

I think the kit we are going to review today has been in our storage shelves for about a year already. Finally we decided to take it out and do a unboxing and straight build review . We have here the 1/100 Pink Zaku Warrior a.k.a Live Concert Version (Lacus Clyne Custom). This is a 2007 C3xHobby exclusive and is the only 1/100 scale Pink Zaku Warrior that I know of which was released by Bandai. It has a metallic pink finish which looks great! It really compliments the kit very well. I was expecting an annoying shiny finish. But I was really stunned that it looked so cute and beautifully pink! hahaha!

ANA 00 Raiser Gundam | HG 1/144 | G30th Limited | Review

This is an unboxing and out of the box build review of the ANA 00 Raiser Gundam (an HG 1/144 G30th Limited Edition kit)For those who do not know about ANA you can check this post for more info. This ANA 00 Raiser Gundam is the second kit that we have built among the ANA series. Like the first kit which is ANA RX-78-2, this 00 Raiser is also a very awesome kit. Joints were super tight (maybe because of the paint), chrome-like finish is top notchnub marks are not really noticeable and decals are nicely thought of (meaning advertising of ANA did not get in the way of the kit). Giving it a 10/10 score! ^_^

ANA RX-78-2 Gundam | HG 1/144 | G30th Limited | OOTB Review

We are happy to  present the unboxing and out of the box build review of the HG 1/144 Gundam RX-72-2  G30th ANA version. For those who do not know about ANA you can check this post for more info. This ANA RX-78-2 Gundam is the first kit that we have built among the ANA series. And I must say that it was all worth the fuzz. It is indeed a beautiful kit. Joints were super tight (maybe because of the paint), chrome-like finish is top notch, nub marks are not really noticeable and decals are nicely thought of (meaning advertising of ANA did not get in the way of the kit). Giving it a 10/10 score! ^_^

MC (Model Comprehend) ANAKLUSMOS | OOTB Review & Unboxing

We have here an unboxing and (out of the box) straight build review of Model Comprehend’s Anaklusmos. The complete name of this turtle looking mech model kit is Galaxia 001 [Earth Guardian EX] (ANAKLUSMOS). “Galaxia (Star God of the Universe)” is the name of the 3d animated Chinese series where it came from which looks like a buffet of all things mecha. First kit from MC that is  not Gundam related (still debating whether the MC gundam kits are bootlegs or not). Got it for 1300 pesos at Divisoria 168 Mall a few months back.  An overall great kit! Just need to be patient since some pieces and parts loves to fall off when changing action pose. Engineering and articulation is similar to Gundam High Grades (HG). A lot of people do not know who the heck is this mecha so we will fill some trivia later. You can check the old post about this MC (Model Comprehend) ANAKLUSMOS here

RX-78-2 Nissin Cup Gunpla 2011 OOTB Unboxing Review

We have here an unboxing and out of the box build review of the 40th anniversary 2011 Nissin Cup Gunpla — Gundam RX-78-2. The kit included in this noodle pack is around 1/200 scale (+/-). It does not require tools to assemble (just snap-off) and will take you around a few minutes to build. The stickers are made of semi stretchable plastic (imho). It does not have much articulation so expect it to just stand there when built. A really cute Gundam novelty item if you are going to ask me. You can check out the Char Zaku version review by clicking here

1/100 Kshatriya Neograde Version | Resin Kit | Straight Build Review

Finally got the guts to try and do a straight build review on our 1/100 Kshatriya (Neograde Version). What we have is the colored cast version made by G-System-Best. When we say straight build for this one, we built it WITHOUT PAINTING any single part. It is basically fitting and sanding parts (if necessary) to see how it will look together. In our case we just used PVA glue to put the parts together. We do not have the equipment to do a paint job so it will stay like that for quite some time. Luckily, because it is already colored cast, we have a rough idea on how the final kit will look like. Please be reminded that this is our first attempt on resin kits… It was fun and challenging to do… ^_^

HG 1/144 | 7-Eleven BearGuy Gundam Review | OOTB | Unboxing

We have here an out of the box build and unboxing review of the 2011 version HG 1/144 7 Eleven Bearguy Gundam. The build is pretty much the same as your average Bearguy (see PINK version here), the only difference is the colors of the parts and the decals (or stickers) that comes with the kit. This is the last of the 2011 7 Eleven Gundam kits that we have. Now the 3 of them (namely RX-78-2 and Zaku) are finally together in the cabinet. There are possibly 2 reasons to get this kit. One is that you want to collect limited versions of the kit. Or you are really just a fan of Bearguy Gundam. I would say we are both ^_^

SD Legend BB Knight Gundam | Review | Unboxing | OOTB

We have here an unboxing and snap-fit build review of SD Legend BB Knight Gundam. Bought this SD Gundam a few days before I got chicken pox LOL. Fortunately it is ready for review thanks to my GF (she built it). There has been many SD Knight Gundam attempts before… But this version that Bandai released for 2012 is the best so far in terms of size, color and gimmicks. I would definitely recommend this to SD fans. I think there are more Legend BB kits to come. Correct me if I am wrong, but I heard that the Shin Musha is on its way. Hope you enjoy this comeback review. ^__^

RG Strike Rouge Gunpla Expo Limited | Real Grade | OOTB Snap Fit Review

We have here an out of the box build aka snap-fit review of a Real Grade (RG) Strike Rouge Gunpla Expo Limited version. This is not included in the regular RG release since it was part of the Gundam Plamodel EXPO held last year (2011). In fact, it does not have a number. This RG Strike Rouge is very similar to the RG Aile Strike all except for the girly-pink color. Being our first RG, I must say that I am amazed at the details this kit has. Indeed, this is a combination of the features of an MG and a PG placed in a 1/144 kit. But just be careful because some parts have a tendency to break because they are too fragile. No, we did not break any ^_^

GOGO MG Hi-Nu Evo Review | OOTB | Snap-Fit

We have here an out of the box build (snap-fit) review of  GOGO’s MG Hi-Nu Evo. Gogo is rumored to be TT-Hongli with a new name, but we do not have proof about that. Anyway, this MG Hi-Nu Evo was derived from the resin conversion parts and mass produced as a model kit by GOGO. This Hi-Nu is priced around 1500 pesos (average) which you can usually buy at Divisoria or at some Sulit sellers. I would really recommend this kit since it looks SOOO different from the original Hi-Nu. Only a few parts from the original was retained — the rest, totally different. Some parts of this kit likes to fall off but it is not much of a worry. So I suggest painting it ASAP and then glue those falling pieces together. Well now, let us move on with the pictures and review. We had fun building this kit! ^_^
