SD Blaze Zaku Phantom - WIP 3

Put your right foot in, put your left foot in...
Mentioned in the previous post, the shields were being painted Orchid color instead of pink. To be honest, they are not the only one with the Orchid color. There are parts of both the left and right legs which requires the same color.
Can you spot the part which has the Orchid color?

RG 1/144 Wing Gundam Zero Custom EW - On Display @ All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2014

There will be a new RG which will be released in December. This will be released the same month as the PG Unicorn. December will be an interesting and taxing month for those who are planning to get both the RG and PG releases. BanDai has made a very smart move. Anyways, here are the details of the new RG Wing Zero Custom.

Release Date: Dec 2014, Price: 2700 yen.

Perfect Grade 1/60 Unicorn


There will be a new Perfect Grade releasing at the end of this year. It is the Unicorn gundam with LEDs and it is able to transform. There are no preview of the model yet but all will be revealed on the 21st November 2014 at the Gundam Expo. For now, here are the details.

PG 1/60 RX-0 Unicorn Gundam (Release Date: Dec 2014, Price: 21600 Yen)
PG 1/60 RX-0 Unicorn Gundam LED Set (Release Date: Dec 2014, Price: 12900 Yen)

Yes that is correct. The LEDs are sold separately from the kit and yes the LEDs are about 1/2 the price of the kit itself. Anyways, I don't know who would buy the kit and not the LED together. Below are the gimmicks which BanDai has listed out:

SD Blaze Zaku Phantom - WIP 2

Small but useful
No I'm not talking about this kit. I'm talking about something else which I accidentally found out its existence. As you all might be aware, I have an on-the-go box for my kits. The thing I need and could not fit into the box is a cutting mat. Recently I went to a stationary shop and saw that they were selling a precision knife with a A5 size cutting mat. I instantly knew I had to get it to complete my box.

SD Blaze Zaku Phantom - WIP 1

Start of something new

Started this little fella after getting tired of shadowing the armor of the MG OO Gundam Seven Swords/G.

Got this kit from a toy exhibition few months ago. They were selling 3 kits for the price of MYR 15. I actually only wanted one but since they only have the option of getting 3 kits, I got the SD Red Frame, SD Dendrodium and this kit.

New online shop...

...new to me anyways

If any of you are in Malaysia and looking for a cheap plamo kit (either original or 3rd party), you might want to consider Gundoom. Found out about this shop last year but did not pay much attention to it since I just re-booted this hobby.
The shop is based in Johor and they only does online sales. The shop has a lot of variety and the prices are lower than other shops (online and retail). The only thing you might want to take into consideration when ordering are the shipping cost.
How cheap is cheap? We take MG Sazabi Ver. Ka kit for comparison. Here are some of the price list of some hobby shops available in Malaysia:

Mechanical Parts x MG 1/100 Sazabi Ver.Ka

Upgrades !!

This is the mechanical parts upgrade for Sazabi Ver. Ka. It has a total of 16 metal parts upgrade. Ordered this together with the Sazabi Ver. Ka. Can't wait to see the parts and if it looks nice, will consider getting the metal upgrades for Gouf and Zaku II. Also might get the Sinanju metal parts when I get the MG Sinanju.

Mechanicore 1/100 model kit RX-105 Ξ "xi" Gundam

Something New To Consider
This is a 3rd party company which makes Gundam models. The price is not as cheap as Daban, TT Hongli, Gao Gao etc.. From my limited knowledge, the other 3rd party company just replicates the MS from Ban Dai but not for Mechanicore. From what I can see from the images, they are more detailed and they make their own gundams like the above mentioned.
The 2nd pre-order is now open and it comes with Zinc Alloy V-fin, A1 Size poster and a special packing box with a random serial number (#1501 - #3500). Below are a few images of the kit and who to pre-order from.

MG OO Gundam Seven Sword /G - WIP 9

Skeleton anyone?
Since the completion of the head in the previous posting, it is time to assemble the inner frames and look at their articulation. What I always like to do is to arrange the parts to where they are suppose to go.
