The Master Grade Aegis. Second to only the five MG’s I’ve built, finished way back in 2014. I’m sure it was my first ‘impulse buy’ kit and was way pricier than it should be. I didn’t know how often older kits were reprinted. I saw it on the shelf on the only hobby shop in […]Read more "MG GAT-X303 Aegis"
The build quality for modern High Grade kits really improved over the years. With surface detail and articulation that can rival some old Master Grades. The first Sinanju Stein was released as a side-story variant unit in MG. The Stein had caught my eye since then with its sharp silhouette, proportions, and subdued colors. It […]Read more "HG MSN-06S-2 Sinanju Stein [Narrative Ver.]"
Dragon Momoko’s 1/100 Sword Strike. It’s a third-party kit that not too bad. Plastic and fitting quality isn’t up to par with Bandai kits but it makes up for it in other departments. Their 1/100 kits boast ‘Perfect Grade detail in Master Grade scale’. They achieve this by basing their kits on resin customs made […]Read more "GAT-X105+AQM/E-X02 Sword Strike"
An ominous demon king, an ornate warrior god. That is what the Sengoku Astray presents itself as. It’s not your regular high-tech mobile war-machine. I debated with getting this kit before, since I already had the other MG Astray. The decision was made with just one idea – I thought it would look cool if […]Read more "MG Sengoku Astray Kai"
A refurbished build. I’ve decided to most of my older gunpla before buying new ones this year. A little backstory – the Astray Red Frame was one of my most wanted kits and I bought this one on my first month of building gunpla. The Tactical Arms II was just awesome.. and that one’s fitted […]Read more "MG Astray Red Frame Kai x Caletvwlch"
I have been hunting down this kit locally for maybe a few years, I just couldn’t get a hold of it. Due to a combination of the lack of resellers or stocks for Kotobukiya kits around and the general overpriced markups they give when there is one available. These kits usually go for 2.5 times […]Read more "HMM RZ-041 LIGER ZERO"
There are quite a few nice surprises to it, but the kit is just a bit old and flawed. To start with the positives, I didn’t expect the multiple shades of black it came with. The frame joints are a darker and glossier plastic. The overall shapes of the suit are awesome and are quite unique. […]Read more "HG 1/144 Over Flag"
