Just found something. Take a good look at that newly-revealed part.

Now look at this sonar unit attached to the Dynames Torpedo.



Sooo... now what is everyone's speculations on what it is, and what the tail pieces do?

Quick question. I just got the order form from HLJ on how much I owe them. I was just wondering if $60 is a good price for a 1/100 Astraea, an HG 1/144 Throne Zwei, an HG 1/144 Gundam Virtue, and 2 action bases? This is the price including all the shipping. It's alot more than I thought it would be.

Well a great part of the price is the shipping cost. How more you order (in weight) the higher the shipping cost will be.

Yeah I know. It's just that after I added up the weights and did the estimating, the actual shipping is still twice as much as the estimate. Is it still a good price though?

Lol! I managed to complete my MG Impulse in just two days!!

Onto my short review of the model kit:

- The Core Splendor doesn't look anything like it's anime counterpart
- The Force Shilouette wings... Can they be any longer? My jaw dropped when I completed the Shilouette pack.
- Arms: Not quite tight as i hoped....
- Legs: Too tight! And I'm still trying to get used to transforming it into the Leg Flyer.
- Head: Much more slimmer compared to my No Grade 1:100 Sword Impulse.
- Torso: Didn't know the vulcan section could fold to cover the Impulse's face
- Overall: Pretty sleek kit, haven't posed it yet since I'm getting an action base for it tomorrow.

One thing I liked about this kit is that it surpassed it's HCM-Pro counterpart in terms of appearance and proportions. The feets are not Sandrock-huge like the HCM-Pro's. and it has seemingly more movable parts and details. Especially the shield's sliding gimmick, this Gunpla managed to pull that one off quite well.


One downfall though: The beam part for the Excalibur... The tip part fits like a glove but the linear part is just a little too tall fit into the Excalibur, once I fitted the beam in, the mid part of it bended..... Not cool. Otherwise, this kit scores well in over all, you won't regret buying this kit!

(Next in my list: MG Infinite Justice)

Develop a lust in OverFlags recently. Is the HG 1/144 OverFlag worth buying?

Sure is.... But I'd prefer it if you buy the 1:100 instead.... Though it's still a HG, but it has details of a MG model.

MG Strike Freedom Full Burst Mode

Quick question, does anyone know what would be the best way to bend the plastic rods that come with the MG Strike Freedom Full Burst Mode so I display the DRAGOON system properly?

Yes $60 is a good price for all of that including shipping.

I thik you're supposed to dip the clear rod thingies in warm/hot water then you can bend them. My memory is a tad fuzzy.

Very hot water should make it malleable.

Tip: Don't use boiling water, it is a bad idea.
