Now that I have the GFFN FA Unicorn Gundam, I am once again considering one GFFN that I wanted to get when it was announced but had to pass up on it since that time, my funding was being moved towards acquiring Nendoroids.
The GFFN I am talking about is the ReZEL which is based off the Zeta and Delta Gundam technology. There were two types of ReZELs seen in the Gundam Unicorn OVAs: the regular type and the Commander Type which basically carries a hyper mega launcher while the regular type just carries the standard issue beam rifle. There is a difference in the color of the visors but for the GFFN release, the sensors are all colored red regardless of whether the beam rifle or the hyper mega launcher is armed. The differences between the regular type and the Commander Type are the sensor colors and the armaments.
Hopefully, I’d still be able to find this one on local shelves. It would be neat to have this standing beside my GFFN FA Unicorn Gundam. Continue Reading

After months of waiting, I finally have my GFFN FA Unicorn Gundam on my office desk and boy does it look badass. Definitely worth the moolah that I paid to acquire it. For Gundam fans in general and Gundam Unicorn fans, this is definitely a must-have.
For those wondering why the internals are green, basically, in the manga, scientists working on the NT-D appear to have discovered a better way of using the system while at the same time reducing the stress on the pilot when the unit goes into Destroy Mode. This way, Unicorn can stay in Destroy mode longer compared to the previous red glow version which could only stay in that form for five minutes or else the pilot will go insane due to the mental stress. This green glow version also allows the unit to equip more armaments compared to the red glow version which only went as far as having twin gatling guns. Continue Reading

Was fiddling around with the bits and pieces from my GFFs and I figured one of them sabers from the GFF Blue Destiny Gundam would fit in Drossel’s hand. The left one was a bit too tight but the right hand was a perfect snug fit. Thus this series of photos where our resident office desk princess discovers the power of beam melee weaponry.

When before we only had some scans from Mr. BlurryScanner, now we have shots of the actual merchandise spotted at Tamashii Nation 2009.
These display items look absolutely gorgeous and it’s spurring me to finish my two Master Grade Gundam Unicorns soon. One thing’s for sure, though. When this baby hits the shelves, I’ll be one of the first people to grab one for myself. It’s going to burn a painful hole in my pocket but it will definitely be worth it. I mean, just look at the detail! I do have a feeling that posability will be almost as limited or even worse than the Psycho Gundam Mk. I but who cares, right?!
There may be some crazy people who would buy two just to have both forms on display on their desk. I would if I had the cash. But right now, one is enough.
Don’t know about release dates yet but this definitely falls in my watch so I’ll keep you guys who are interested in this posted. ^_^

This is going to be my next Gundam purchase and before this comes out, I will make sure I complete both model kits that are still waiting to be completed in my room. It will definitely cost an arm and a leg but this is one of the few GFF Metal Composites that I am not willing to pass up on.

I’m really loving this new lens and the photos that it rolls out. I would have loved shooting more pictures of my robots but since most of them are already in the office, I only had two Gundams left at the office: the Psycho Gundam and the PG Strike (which was in pieces).
When I took these pictures, there was a bright sun out driving away some thick, gray clouds. They added a nice effect to the shots. I’m quite happy with how they turned out.

I think I’ve found the next Gundam I’ll be purchase (note: Sinanju is not a Gundam )
It’s the first release from the GFF Kyoshiro Maniax line: Red Warrior. It definitely isn’t your run-off-the-mill Gundam and by George, it’s red! It comes out this November at 5,575 yen a pop!

Saw this bit of news at Ngee Khiong’s blog. It’s the GFF Metal Composite RX-78-2 Gundam ver. Ka. They’re re-releasing this baby this October and it comes with a new decal set that’s different from the previous iteration of this 1/100 action figure.
Looks nice. Might want to buy one for myself but at the moment, Nendoroids and Figmas are eating up my budget. >_< From mech-head to chibi fanatic. Splendid!

Edit: Removed the image in this blog post because crediting apparently wasn’t enough for the owner. But wait! I’ve got a BETTER alternative. Want to see more pics of the clear version GFF? Visit this site to see a whole smorgasbord of pics.
Big Gundam fan? Had the chance to go the Comic-Con in San Diego and turned it down? Then you might regret not having gone because of this. It’s the GFF RX-78-2 ver. Ka Clear Version which is exclusively released in Comic-Con San Diego 2008.

Finally! I’ve been so eager to see the Psycho Gundam Mk. II Metal Composite action figure in living color and after being away from blogging and Gundam news-hunting for the past week or so, this is definitely a nice welcome back to the geekdom I’ve always been fond of since I was a kid.
When I was first looking at the drawings for the Psycho Gundam Mk. II, I thought it was too purple for my tastes but looking at this colored version, all the more do I want to own this GFF as well. I already have the first one. This would look really awesome standing beside the Mk. I. There appears to be some additional changes in the transformation from bipedal to mobile fortress mode.
So just feast your eyes on the rest of the pictures, all taken from Amiami.com.
