The Leo is somewhat the Zaku of Gundam Wing Series, the much simpler design and versatility made it the perfect foot soldier. Also the legs are similar to Tallgeese’s. Originally sold for 3,000 yen, I think I got it for 1,350 yen during a sale event on HLJ.
August 2015 Loot Crate: Villains 2. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much about this theme. But after opening the box, I think so far this is the best crate they assembled. And I almost like every single item, fewer but way better than previous boxes.
I usually do my kit shopping around mid way through the month as this somewhat give me and indication whether I have budget for new stuff (plus I get paid monthly so its halfway to payday!!). These just arrive last week. 😀
Firstly, the new MG Hyaku Shiki Ver 2.0
I’ve had this kit since release date but I had this place in my HLJ private warehouse.
MG Mobile Pod Ball Ver Ka
I’ve always wanted one of these for no apparent reason actually, but its only Y1600 and it was available
RG Wing Zero Extension Effect Stand
This is not really a kit but a custom base for the RG Wing Zero Custom.
But I like it since I like to recreate iconic pose in the Endless Waltz OVA series
MG Tallgeese III EW
I’ve always loved the design on the Tallgeese, but my favorite of all iterations is the EW version Tallgeese III which unfortunately only came as a P-Bandai release, being here in NZ I don’t have access to these items without using those overpriced ebay shops, so when I had the chance to get this kit I didn’t hesistate one bit.
Aoshima Full Metal Panic! ARX-7 Arbalest
I’ve always been an anime fan. One of those anime that I’m particularly fond of is the Full Metal Panic!. Unfortunately their are no news whether they’ll make more episodes in the series. so the next best thing is to own the primary mech in the series.
I know this kit has been out for a while now but then again I only came back to making kits again not so long ago, I started to look for this kit but when I found out that this particular one is already discontinued, I was so gutted. So like the Tallgeese III when I saw this one available I didn’t hold back and now its here!
Currently this is my stack of kits to be done (can you name them all). These new ones are an awesome addition to my collection. I cant wait to build them all, now finding the time to build them all is a totally different issue but if there’s a will, there’s a way as the saying goes :).
I first saw this on a post by Samuel Chan on his Facebook page SamuelDecals. Made by Motor King from China. And when my wife asked me if there is anything I want for my birthday, I know exactly what to say.
July’s Loot Crate theme is Heroes 2. They did the first Heroes theme last year and this is their first theme sequel. My crate this month arrived earlier than I expected, although I didn’t have the opportunity to take pictures right away. From their teasers it was mentioned that there will be a hard-cover book and a DC figure. And I’m more excited on the figure than the book.
First in the box is Legend of Zelda wristband which could be useful if I’m doing any exercise at all.
Next is this Batman emblem multi-tool. It’s got bottle opener, a Philip screw driver and a flat screw driver. Quality seems good and I like the texture of the paint. A bit heavy and big though for a key chain.
Wonder Woman mini poster.
Promotional Brawlhalla code to unlock some sort of character skin. Never heard of this game before, might check it out in Steam.
Regrettable Superheroes book. Started reading it and quite entertained with some weird superheroes they came up with.
Old school Batman figure. Will take better pictures once I got more time to do so.
A vanilla Spock hand air freshener. Not as cool as the Captain America shield I got last time but it will do.
And the usual pin and Loot Crate magazine.
For this month, I’m happy with the Batman figure and the book. Not so much about the wristband. So in general, I’m satisfied on this crate, hope next month they release a t-shirt as well together with a figure. Next theme is Villains 2.
This is my take on a Dark RX-93 Hu-Nu Gundam. Taking inspiration from GF13-001 Master Gundam from G-Gundam Series and RX-178 MK-II Titan.
A little Starwars reference, I dont have a red effect parts but my pink RX-78 effect part is close enough i think, 😛
Some photos has a bit of dust in them as I’ve been moving some furniture around in my workspace.
