Doing another unscheduled quickee to showcase my first Gundam Gunpla! I got yesterday and spent the whole day building the High Grade Wing Gundam Zero. And I gotta say, the process was fun if a little stressful and the result was a beautiful figure.

“You think Jobby’s Gundam ghost will leave him to possess my home? I’ll happily take him.”

I watched Gundam 00 when I was young but I wouldn’t say I’m a huge Gundam nerd. I only got into making a gunpla after watching tid-bits of Gundam Unicorn and watching the “Char’s Counterattack” movie. I forgot how much I love the world and stories of Gundam, and how freakin dark it can get. I definitely say give the series a chance for its moral themes and robot fights. I’m gonna try to watch more Gundam on my own, most likely gonna start with Unicorn, and see if I lose my wallet to Gunpla.

Back to the figure, I definitely love the look of the thing. I didn’t do panel lining because I didn’t have the marker for it, excuse me for my noobish charm, but it still stands out with its colors and design. Nothing screams Gundam than the beautiful V headcrest. It poses pretty well, and all its accessiories makes for some stellar poses, but I hate the shoulders. I’ll admit, I left a stress mark on the right side of the body because I thought I messed up with the shoulder parts, but the struggle is an apparent universal one. So, that sucks.

It wasn’t bad when I first made it, but posing for this guy is a chore because the arms just love to pop off. I ended up scratching a lot of the rims of the connection point because the hinge digs deep into the body whenever you try to pop the arm back it. I gotta tell ya, these photos I’m gonna show you were hell just because of the arms. I regret man-handling it the way I did now because of that stress mark and the chipped connection, but it was 12 in the morning and I’m a stubborn bastard. Beautiful figure, amazing articulation, terrible shoulders. Enjoy the shots I made (I don’t have a good setup so excuse the poor backgrounds with these shots)

BTW: If you’re wondering why I don’t have it in bird mode, I don’t like the bird mode. It doesn’t look good and it’s a pain in the ass to hold together because of the arms. The wings on this figure make it difficult for the arms to stay and handling the bird mode always popped it out. Plus, the bird mode is basically a jet transformers: arms visible, thrusters totally the legs, and it looks good if you don’t look at the bottom.

      1. So, as I feared, a subscriber pluggin can only be put in if I have a business plan which costs an arm and a leg. I don’t have a steady enough income yet from anything to pay for it, so it’ll most likely take a while. In the meantime, there is the Spacechimp newsletter I set up, though I’m waiting until my winter break to commit time for a logo and the first email. So, all I can say is wait patiently until I can get that out.
