Updates, VOL. 2

Hello everyone, since I'm working on a monumentally huge review, I thought I'd take this week for the second of many upcoming updates. I've still got a huge backlog of reviews to do, I know, and they'll all get done! At least for right now I'm not being distracted by building anything ^__^;;

~*~RG RX-78-2 Gundam~*~

I went off and bought my own, since I loved the design of it, I felt I needed to get the first RG kit ever, and honestly, who doesn't have enough shelf space for another RX-78-2 Gundam? xD. At any rate, I thought that now that I've got my own I'd give my little schpeal on it.

Incredible is really the only word that comes to mind when thinking about this kit. The Advance MS Joint frame was a brilliant idea on Bandai's part, and the different shades of every color used on the RG makes it look all the more awesome. After applying the decals, it definitely needs a clear coat to keep everything on and to make the shiny bits more shiny :D

However, I do have a few minor complaints. First of all, the hands. Maybe I just didn't assemble it right, but for some reason the pegs from the beam rifle/bazooka/beam saber don't fit into the hand slot all the way, which means the thumb ends up popping off if I try to make it look like it's holding the accessory like a MG kit would. After having the right thumb pop off a few times, though, I realized that it's easier to just position it downward, like so:

One other thing that bugs me are the front and rear skirt armors. I just feel like they could've done something better than a ball joint into a shallow hole thing =\. Granted, it's not like the RG is meant to be played with like a HG kit would~

Also, I'd like to point out that the beam effects that are included with the RG are the same effects that come with the MG RX-78-2 Gundam 2.0, but a darker shade of pink ^__^


I know I can put up polls, ask questions in the chatbox, and set up little logs of what's going on review-wise, but I'm never going to get many replies to those xD. So I'd like to know your opinion of how my blog is doing right now :D. Of the backlog of reviews right now, which ones do you want to see first? In general, do you prefer reviews of MGs or HGs? Would you like to see more anime figures popping up here? I can blog on and on about whatever, but in the end a blog is nothing without its readers :)

~*~Video Games~*~

I'm quite capable of droning on about non-gunpla stuff though~. I recently became aware that there was a Megaman Zero Collection that had been released for the DS, and promptly snagged it. Out of all of the Megaman games I've played, as well as all of the GameBoy Advance games I've played, the Megaman Zero Series is, without a doubt, my favorite of both categories. Each game has a fantastic story, amazing artwork, and the gameplay really never gets old ^__^;;. I'd like to find a Gundam kit that I could make look like Megaman Zero xD


It's gonna be one hell of a review~


  1. I'll take a stab and say that's the PG 00 Raiser in the last phot. There's not many reviews of the thing out so it'll be cool to read yours.

  2. You'd be correct in assuming that, Z :D. It didn't seem like the PG 00 Raiser was very well received, but that being said I absolutely love it! I'm not gonna say anything else, though, so you'll have to wait until next Friday :P

  3. Congrats on the RG and the PG. had the same problem with the RG's hands, but mine ended worse: I could not use the left hand as it was missing some of its (loose) fingers... T_T

    P.S. I guess I'm not the only one preparing a review... ^^
