Gundam Releases from May 2012 to Nov 2012

I would like to inform you that this is just a continuation of the original post back in November 2011. So for those who may wonder why I just didn’t update the older post, I think it’s better to have this one with a far more updated list than the original post. Hence, you’ll see 2 versions of this list.

This is the 2nd half of the list. For the first half (Dec 2011 to April 2012) of the list, kindly click here.

It’s time again to release a new set of list for the up-coming dates. With that said, we do have quite a lot of releases especially on Feb 2012.

Included in this list are the following lines: AG, FW, HG, RG, MG, Metal Build, Gashapon and Robot Damashii. Includes now in the list: Various items that are related to Gundam (i.e. Costume & Book)

Note: This post will be updated as we get more information.

Burst Base

I finally got a base to match my SD Nightingale (from Model Comprehend aka MC). Got this base for a very cheap price since this is a China-made base.

I called this one a Burst Base or a base with burst effect. This is perfect for SDs and 1/144 models. It can actually be used for 1/100 especially for the smaller Gundams.

This base have 5 colors:

–      Blue
–      Purple/Violet
–      Red
–      Yellow
–      White

What to say about this base:

–      It’s a clear base good for adding lights below or put it on top of a rotating base
–      You are given 2 pegs for your kits (which is ok though I wish they have more)
–      You have 5 holes to put the stand which gives you flexibility
–      The edges of the burst effects are pretty sharp
–      The plastic is thick
–      Affordable and all colors are locally available.

Here are the pics:

RC 1/100 Nightingale – Review

I failed to mentioned in this blog that I have been doing the Regulation Center (RC) 1/100 Nightingale.

Just a little info, the RC is actually one of the China brands out there that creates resin kits based on Gundams. One of their known kits is the Greifer and that super slim Psycho Gundam.

Anyway with that said here are the links to my Review and Rants regarding the RC Nightingale

Part 1 – Introduction and Ranting
Part 2 – Box and Parts
Part 3 – Runners and Manual
Part 4 – WIP Feet & Legs
Part 5 – WIP Front Stabilizer, Waist, and Inner Chest
Part 6 – WIP Skirts (Front and Side)
Part 7 – Tail Binder

GMAC Christmas Party 2011

As Christmas draws near, our fellow admins from the GMAC decided that we should have our own Christmas party this year. But before I tell you about the party, I first went to the ToyCon held in Megamall.
 
6th Christmas Toy Fair December 2011 – Dec. 16-18 in Megamall Megatrade Hall 1.
 
I went there around 10:30 am yesterday before heading out to the GMAC party. Sad to say that Sir DC’s plan of selling his items there didn’t continue but hopefully we will be seeing Sir DC selling his stuff in a toycon in the future.
 
For those who are into die cast mostly from the Marvel and DC comics, you’ll surely love this event. Same goes to those who likes comics and manga. But if you are into Gundams, sadly only Wasabi Toys only offers original Bandai kits. There’s one stall there that even sells bootleg, but they only have limited stocks (like around 15 kits if I counted it correctly). Also they (Wasabi Toys) are on sale so I didn’t miss this opportunity to get a nice kit, which in turn became my Dad’s gift to me. We did split the cost of this kit, since he mentioned that he’s supposed to buy me the MG Blue Astray Clear Color Version, instead of the Psycho.
 

 
Since this is pretty big, I am now thinking where to put this humongous beast!
I got it at a pretty decent price, by decent I mean I am getting it at a cheaper price.
 
I did ask Papa Vanz for the details of the GMAC Party since I have forgotten where the venue and time!

Venue: Padis Point, near Annex bldg. SM North Edsa
Time: 1-5pm (and honestly it extended till the evening!)

 

I have to admit that it has been 10 years since I went to this mall, and I was only convinced by my friend -slash- office-mate that we go and watch some movies which is like a month ago. Honestly, I didn’t even know the name of the building we went to, but it certainly feels so nostalgic that this mall is the same age as I do and I have grew up using this mall as my big playground before (back when there’s no Sky Dome, and that there’s only the Annex, Bowling Center and the Main building).
 
Anyway I met some of the nicest people, and have seen some of the old faces that I have met back in the MAC First Anniversary. Special mention to Kim D, Aaron and the gang.😀

Here are the pictures of the party! (I’ll just be posting the links🙂 )

Here are the videos of the event. Please take note that there are seven (7) videos!

Videos courtesy of Paul Velando

Some of the random/funniest things that we have all seen and have discussed over the party:

1) Dennison + saucer/platito + 10php Epoxy + gundam head = on the spot mod.
2) Dennison + sanding + under the table = priceless.
3) TVA doing some Liempo modding – It seems that MatX has inspired TVA with his Turkey Mod last MAC 1st Anniv.
4) Diorama turns one giant camera – said diorama was one of the raffle prizes in the party

The highlight of the festivities is the picture-taking!!! -ahem- RAFFLE!!!
We have decals, cutting mats, scriber, diorama, and model kits! Here are the juicy prizes that were raffled during the party:

SD OO Gundam Seven sword from Dr.Noel Carasig
1/6 scale Guns for Zaku from Niko Barcelon
Tamiya paint retarder and 2 set of Decals from Jeremy Ray Macalino
HG Ashtaron 1/144 scale from Matthew Santos
5 pcs. of Scriber and 5pcs. Cutting mat from Vanz Najoseki Hilario
MG Strike launcher from Raev Catahan
Going Merry of “ONE PIECE” from Raev Catahan

Grand Prize

Limited Edition MG Zaku II from Patrick Rollo owner of OTAKUHOBBITOYS PH

I think that day is my luckiest day, since I got a model kit: One Piece – Going Merry Memorial Log Ship. I am happy that I got that one, and my goodness the price of that model is pretty expensive. :O

Thank you so much!
 
There’s actually another party of the group and this time it’s the MAC Christmas Party. Sir DC informed me that morning that it is going to be held in Timog after dinner. Eventually, they all decided to just stick with Padis Point since most of the gang are there already.

Interview with Paul “The Virgin Angel” Velando – TVA

For the next interview, we have here -spotlight on- Paul Velando!
 
I’ve only known this guy for a bit when we had the MAC Anniversary Party, and I must say that it was an honor to actually meet and talked with these guys in the party. Recently, we have all seen him in action during the Qan[T] face-off with Vanz Hilario. Certainly, the artistic side in him can be seen in the things that he does especially for those who have seen his YouTube channel. So with that being said, I introduce to you the guy who’s motto is “GUNPLA LOVE,” Paul “The Virgin Angel” Velando.
 
Hi TVA, could you tell us about yourself and you loving this hobby?
Hello guys! My name is Paul Velando aka The Virgin Angel. 1984 was the year that I was born and I’m from the Philippines. ^_^ I’m a poet, a gunpla modeler, a lover and a friend. I don’t consider myself a pro when it comes to gunpla building. Heck, I’m in no way even near the skills of Vanz, Dc23 or Matx just to name a few… I just love spreading gunpla love and in as much as possible I try to show my passion through it with all my gunpla works ^_^
