Happy shopping, App ! Make sure you buy nice items! Oh yeah, if you're interested, isn't there a HG Bansheee clear which just got released?

Now I already started imagining on what things will I buy if I'm ever in Japan.

Why don't you try some resin ones and level-up your modelling skills >

I wonder what will be your initial reaction when confronted by shelves upon shelves of gunpla in there...

People outside of Japan need to order online or go to conventions and pay crazy amounts of money.

>_<
Appel lives in Germany, he's probably on vacation in Japan.

i probably looked like some little boy in a candy store :B rrobbert on youtube uploaded a video about the store on youtube. i wanted to take pictures as well but i wasnt allowed to do so...
but my dads reaction was even better when i actually started shopping! but his disapproval just made me spend even more money ;D

yes exactly. my dad invited me. and i heard about yotobashi umeda on rrobbert184s chanel on youtube.

the store is great by the way! very wide selection and most kits 30% off. i even saw a 2 1/144 dendrobiums ^^
but as i said before, im a little limited with how much i can spend and the space i have available. so for now i bought MG zeta 2.0 (3640 yen), HG jesta (1120 yen) and MG AGE-1 sparrow (2940 yen). maybe i will go there again but for now im actually quite happy.
i didnt even see any resin kits. and i dont really feel like building one of those^^

edit: i also got a pack of gundam markers. the regular one with white, yellow, red, blue, grey and a lining marker. the other ones are 150 yen each, maybe i will pick up more of those.
but i mainly want to look into some more HGs or one more MG with a smaller box. i dont know yet^^

i didnt see any of those. they only had the regular ones there as far as i know. but im ok with that. for example, i dont really want to pay extra for a zeta 2.0 HD color version only because the plasic is molded in a slightly different color.

today i will check how much i can fit into my traveling bag and if i still have enough room im going to check out yodobashi a second time^^ i think i will pick up some action bases and maybe a third MG if i can fit it into the bag.

I really hope you can buy MG Banshee KA. I want to know how much it costs there.

Oh yeah, I just finished assembling a kit. Itís HG Nu HWS. Maybe itís time to share?
Spoiler for Warning: It's pretty long ^_^:
Overall, itís a great kit. It has a lot of features and mode options. Btw, I bought this kit coz I really doubt Bandai will make a MG of it. Even though thereís a chinese bootleg ďGundoomĒ version of Nu HWS which has more details & weapons than Bandaiís, it doesnít look that good, especially the face (you can see it on Prime92's review). Also, I bought this Nu HWS when itís on sale so itís pretty cheap. I might consider buying the cheaper HG Nu (plain) just to have the Double-Fin Funnel mode.

The lack of an actual Nu DFF gunpla forced me to get the Hi-v instead. I also don't like asymmetric look of the Nu but that yellow-black scheme looks terrific...so GBP version then.

The sharp looking Hazel: another kit that deserves an MG.

@Appel - Speaking of rrobbert184, why not a couple of those wind-up Zakus or the light-up Dom (or an Acguy?) if you're going back to the store.

It’s beautiful. The way you pose it is unique. I’ve never seen it before. You can do a million poses with that cool kit.

Oh yeah, I’m just wondering about something. The eyes look pale. Aren’t they metallics like most of gundam kits? Or is it a regular color just like 1/100 Blitz’ non-metallic blue eyes? I don't have the Noir so I don't know.

Haha. Thanks! I actually used Gundam Marker gold for the eyes. I tried using yellow first but I didn't like the result.

Oh, I see. I thought you used the sticker. Well, you can always stick it later on.

Yea I'd agree with your dad, your def wasting your money on a AGE-3

Marasai's looking good but them colours look I dunno pale/weak?
Not that I don't like the red but I think it could do with some paint to look more striking.

Hey so I kinda gave up on waiting for MG Exia R2 (even though I think it'll be made).
So lately, I've been considering to purchase some HG kits along with Action Base 2 stands.

Where can I get these the cheapest online? I live in the US so choices are eBay (if shipped from US), Amazon, Gundam Guy, etc etc.

1.5 gundam
-- red
reborns gundam
-- red
0 gundam (type acd)
-- green
0 gundam (roll out)
-- green
exia repair 2
-- green

* The color under each kit indicates the Action Base 2 I want for that kit.
* So green is Sparkle Green Action Base 2, and red is Sparkle Red Action Base 2.
