So with another anniversary, comes another giveaway. Those who follows this blog for at least a year knows this will be coming ^^. So let’s get right down to business…
Look who I’ve dug out from the Gunpla grave :D. This model is none other than the HG 1/100 Gundam Epyon. This Gundam is held in high respect as being one of the purest melee mobile suits in the Gundamverse (minus magical off-screen vulcans). My love for giant swords goes back pretty far ^^.I don’t know how but its beam saber got lost somehow… TToTT
It’s been so long I’m not even sure when I assembled this model (8+ years ago). I do remember that I had a blast assembling it though… and it took no more than a few hours. I wish can do that nowadays. Look at the dust and nub marks all over it! :D
Bulky proportions. loose parts. lack of color correction. Polycap joints all around. poor range of motion. Ahh… the good old days of Gundam models xD. This model can’t really make action poses despite having a decent amount of articulation. Heck, it even has motion where no other model has so far… articulation on the shin!
Sorry Trieze, but you’re not fooling anyone with that “twin dragon” (or whatever it is supposed to be) transformation mode >_>. Just imagine how painful that transformation would be in G Gundam…
Gundam models sure have come a long way after all these years…
So Bandai… WHERE IS MY MG GUNDAM EPYON?!
I know many of you are waiting for this moment. So y’all ready for this? Yea? Good! Then get your cameras, lights, models, backdrops, props, everything(!!!) ready then! It’s time to start the Anniversary Giveaway Contest!
Wee! First post of the year! Here’s the second part of Astraea Type F’s review. The remainder being all the action photos and the summary. Was using my mini reactor for lighting and standing next to it for the whole photoshoot and now I’m seeing stars ^^;. In case some of you missed it, I started another giveaway two post down. I’ve received six entries so far ^_^. Hope there will be more coming in!
A full frontal battle will start on Saturday.
Here it is, the completed HG 1/144 GN Arms Review with guest star Gundam Astraea! The review is actually smaller than usual this time because there’s not much to cover ^^. This is also the first photo review taken with my Canon XSi so the photos might look a bit “different” than what you’re probably used to seeing ^^;. Even though it stopped snowing now (about 4″), I still can’t work on Trans-Am Exia yet as it is just below 32 degrees F right now xD.
Updated my review and uploaded new photos for the HG 1/100 Gundam Double X and G-Falcon. I saw how little pictures there were on that page so I thought I should work on it a bit :D It should give those considering this model a better view of how the thing actually is.
