WISP: MG Fang Joker

I can talk about how a pickup truck smashed into the driver side of my car because the driver decided to change lanes on the freeway without looking, leaving my car in the repair shop for two weeks while the truck takes off with its tire polished. Luckily, they are paying for the damage. If I go on with the story, then I must go into a rage fest about the average American drivers here so I’ll just stop here. Since I don’t have any broken bones, I’ll just brush off my injuries as “mere bruises” and move on- I AM part Gundam after all. However, I really appreciate and thank you for your concern this whole time ^^. ANYWAY… Yea, it’s been awhile since I’ve built a MG but it has been even longer since I did something Kamen Rider related so why not have the best of both worlds?

Gunpla Future Projects Update

Okay… let’s admit. Be it called Future Projects, backlog or whatever, it’s still a stash of models that need to be worked on eventually. Just wanted to make a quick post that I’ve updated the future projects page with everything that I plan to eventually work on. Things that have been in hiding up till now are also revealed. Now everything is going to be boring since there are no more secrets/mysteries/surprises on this blog anymore… or is there? ;)

See anything of interest on the page that you would like me to bump up the priority for reviewing? :)

First Gunpla Loot of the Year

First time ordering from fellow comrade Gundam Guy‘s online store and it certainly won’t be my last. Loved the experience and shipping was easy on the wallet since we both live on the same coast- the huge box only cost $15 to ship. All it took was send him an email with what I want, work out a deal, hand over the cash, shake hands, and viola! Here’s what I got…

Shake it off! SHF Kamen Rider Review

This was shipped out after Christmas and arrived the same week. After checking it out and seeing how stunning it was in person, I just have to review it ^^;. So here’s my first review of the year- SH Figuarts Kamen Rider Accel! Review wo furikiru ze!

I figured I’ll just finish reviewing all the remaining SHF from the W series (there is all but one left) before I get back to Gundam. It’s not like I can finish any Gunpla at the moment anyway since weather has been at 0 to -2 degrees C for a week now ^^;.

Kamen Rider Kuuga

600th Post Reached! Kuuga… the first KR series of the Heisei Era. I think it’s a pretty straightforward good-vs-evil series so while it is easy to watch, some will probably find it boring due to its simple plot ^^;. I won’t go into much details/spoilers just in case some of you are planning on watching it eventually. The main protagonist and only Rider (yes, the above image is all the same person), Godai Yusuke, is your gentle, happy-go-lucky, god-bless-his-soul fellow who lives to protect everyone’s smile from the nasty and evil Grongi. Wow. Really though… the kaijin (“monsters”) in this series are pretty cruel in killing people; blowing up school girls, crushing people against a wall with a truck, running people down with a motorcycle, setting people on fire while they’re still alive… pretty violent compared to what you see nowadays ^^;. I usually dislike such clean characters like Godai but I love how he endorses himself and stick his “Kuuga” mark on just about everything- on his bike, t-shirt, belt buckle, apron… you name it. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone taking so much joy and happiness in being a Rider xD.

Kamen Rider is NOT Popular

Well… at least according to this blog, it isn’t ^^;. Some of you might remember that not too long ago,  there was a period when this blog pretty much became “Kamen Rider Inochi” and that was probably confusing some of you haha. I did that very intentionally just to gauge reaction, interest, feedback and discover if others have similar feelings toward KR; according to the KR poll (500 voted), opinions were split right at 50/50 so it’s “damn if I do and damn if I don’t” xD.
