    Isn't the last mace in that picture the mace from the 1/100 Full Mechanics version?

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    I ended up doing my HG's with a gundam marker, as well as doing the toes and tail. I aint a great painter, but it's a hell of a lot better than the stickers that kit comes with.

    My order just came with some Gundam markers. I am sure the colors won't exactly match, but it will help. I just wonder how many coats I'll need.

    Tickets are up for Gundam NT's US theatrical release.

    I don't know if any of y'all want to meet up to see it? Here in Los Angeles it appears to be playing in Hollywood and Torrance, if anyone else is in the area I'd be down for meeting at either.

    I can't see it myself given the resolution on the trailers for Urdr Hunt, but some folks are saying that apparently the boot-up sequence for the Hajiroboshi identify it as Gundam Marchosias


    So guessing it's been renamed since the Calamity War

    All Gundam's in IBO have the name of a duke of Hell so yeah. The main character's caretaker and presumably the owner of it is of Japanese descent so it's Hajiroboshi is a nickname they gave to it.

    All the other Gundams we've seen are Dukes, but Marchosias is a Marquis of Hell, a lower rank.

    As usual, way more detailed than before. The original Iron Kong appears to have been one of Kotobukiya's earlier kits (15, which puts it around the time of Liger Zero), but it is still danged impressive.

    s8GkyIQh.jpg

    I don't know if I should be surprised... but it has a dedicated tongue piece. I have no earthly idea why it does, but I find it cool that in theory, this giant artillery platform can stick out its tongue.

    Edit: MONKEY CHEST!

    GkwhXSih.jpg

    I decided to stop here because there was a decent amount of gluing at this stage. Naturally the arms are heavy, so they recommend gluing the supports that keep the arms in place attached to the body. So I've done that, even if it means I'll never fully disassemble the guy again.

    Dude's literally barrel chested - the zoid core is going to sit right front and center in the body.

    You're giving me flashbacks to assembling the legs of my Death Stinger. Good lord, so much work.

    I might've missed it - is this a 3d mold you are assembling, or a kit you got?

    Wonder if we'll be seeing an MG of the Gundam Narrative anytime soon. And if that might lead to a Unicorn 2.0 with a matching Phenex. Be nice to have an undergated sprue for that mekki plated plastic...

    So far as new Gundam designs I've just caught up on. Sol Braves are frigging amazing. In performance and as a transformer mecha.

    We got a couple at the store. I keep eyeing it... like.. I have NO attachment to Gundam, but there's just something so insane about it. It looks like it would be a fun build. But I've got way too much on my plate for now.

    It's a good Gundam, but it doesn't turn into a windmill, so I don't think it can possibly be the best.

    The layering of pieces inside the body is insane. Like.. I was, and am, hoping to paint up all the tubes and power conduits. Well, this model has a TON of them.

    I did spend about 20 minutes deciding if I'd installed a piece correctly or not, and in the end decided screw it, I'd install it the way that I felt looked better and didn't expose registration marks.

    Friendly fellow GunPla people, can anyone read Japanese?
    Because in the Perfect Grade I have there are these metal things, and I have some in a clear bag, and some in a yellow bag; one bag has shorter things than the other.
    So in the following pictures, where does it say something like "Thing (Yellow)" or "Thing (Short)" so that I know which bag to use for which step?

    A few times I’ve ordered kits from japan I’ve had all sorts of stuff in the packages. Promo weapon packs, a couple of disks for a gacha Gundam arcade game, even one time a hand written letter of thanks.

    It seems like a lot of the sellers on the UK Amazon at least are small Japanese mom and pops. If you do repeat or large orders they tend to notice. The letter was particuallly sweet, English clearly wasn’t thier first language but it was about noticing I had made a couple of orders from them and that they were very grateful.
