My Gunpla of the Year 2011: HGUC RGM-96X Jesta

So this is like…2 months late? Oh well, can’t be apologising too much but anyways. I built many gunplas last year, probably in the upwards of 30. One of them stood out amongst the rest personally, and that happens to be the Jesta from Gundam Unicorn. Part in reason was because that its probably my favorite Earth Federation “grunt” type suit. The other reason is that the model was really well designed.

Temporary inactivity

As you people may have know I have not been posting on my blog as of late. First of all I have been inactive due to my holiday trip to Japan and it was GOOD! Bought lots of stuff to enjoy, gunplas, figures and some great games.

I would post them here and all but you guys know that I’ve been busy. Also in 2 weeks from now…or less than that, I’ll be going into National Service. I’ll have to go in for the first two weeks not being able to go back home. The following 7 weeks will be quite packed too so I regret that blog activity is going to be at near zero even if I wanted to post anything. But we’ll see, maybe I can cram in a post of two. By October onwards I should have more time though. Don’t worry about me, I’ll come back soon!

New Gundam Series announced next week.

Wonder what this Gundam will turn out to be? I do too! Well we can check who and what it is by next week! You can see it here at Bandai Channel Live (http://live.b-ch.com/) and Gundam.info (http://www.gundam.info/). They will not only be discussing about the new series’ characters, story and mobile suits, but products too. Maybe Gunpla?

According to the official website they mention that we should not  “miss a new Gundam history”. Based on that, I think it will a totally new AU series. But who knows?  The streaming is scheduled to be on June 13 2011, at 13:30 Japan time. Even if you don’t get to see it, I’m sure images will leak out super fast!

Gundam Musou 3 Review (PS3 version played)

Three years ago, Koei released a title that not many people would have suspected to have ever come. It was the first Musou game that featured neither Dynasty nor Samurai. That game is called Gundam Musou. Yes, it was a crossover between Mobile Suit Gundam and the Dynasty Warriors series. Three years forward, the third game of the franchise finally hit stores this past week in Japan. How does this fare compared to the previous two and on its own? Check it out below!

Snake Sneaking Suit’s final mission?! – Snake Play Arts Kai Sneaking Suit Review

Probably around later today or tomorrow morning, I will be receiving a new Snake Play Arts Kai. This one will be based on Snake’s default camo, the Jungle camo! Yeah, its actually an improvement over the Sneaking Suit because its actually has THE STUN KNIFE and A RIFLE. Took their time huh? At least we’re finally getting two weapons essential to Snake in Peace Walker. And yes, a rifle. I don’t have to go out and use a little oversized 1/6 rifle anymore! Anyways back to the actual reason for this post.

As I said, I’ll be getting an updated Snake, so I’ll be temporarily retiring the first Snake so that this new one can have the spotlight in the meantime. So for a (temporary) final shoot, I’m doing a review here of the Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Play Arts Kai Snake Sneaking Suit.
