Price: ~4000 YEN
This was a random purchase on my part. As random as it was, I preordered it months in advance. It was truly a good purchase on my side as it is one of Good Smile Company’s latest innovation.
Price: 4800 YEN (outside of Japan will be quoted higher)
Been a while since I posted anything interesting here’s a quickie. A short while ago I manage to get this limited release Exia through my existing contacts. Wasn’t much pricier than getting the standard release MG 1/100 Gundam Exia Dark Matter so it was a no-brainer for me as I liked this variation more. Additionally, it comes with all the Dark Matter parts, just molded in the Amazing’s colors.

*You can mix up the Sentinels to your needs. In the photo, I placed 1 Quintet Wall due to the nature of the tourney, otherwise 4 Sentinels of your choice is best to protect you. I personally prefer the old ones as I won’t be open to Dimension Police now unrestricted Laurel or be forced to draw with Nemain.
About the triggers, you can just use the ones from the Legend Deck as default. I didn’t use Howl Owl here because they were being used in another, more main, deck. 6 draws have 2 main purpose. 1 is in case you get rushed. 2 is to help you draw into the units you need faster, however, your deck cannot survive a long game.
While I transit to another stage of life, since last year, I’ve been too preoccupied to make any posts on my blog. I may be somewhat active on FB but that’s a quick communications platform social network that has been good to me to do some of my stuff, although not entirely.
This year’s New Years build goes to SD Ex-Standard Wing Gundam Zero Custom and MG Wing Gundam Proto Zero. I find the new Ex-Standard quite fun to build, while simpler and straightforward. The color detail may be less than before but they make up with lots of stickers to cover the obvious areas up, a decent paint job will make it look much better of course. They have sharper faces/heads are partly follow their MG/RG counterparts in updated design, tweak to fit the SD frame. Well, everyone has elbow joints now. Unfortunately, you get a small set of weapons unlike before. Other than RX78-2 that I’ve built, they rest only came with their primary guns, no beam saber toothpick even.
As for the Proto Zero, I’ve been itching to get it for some time. I had the chance to last month and decided to pick it up. There’s hardly any fault in model kit design, its beautiful and displays majestically in its signature poses.
That’s all for this quick “been a while” post, I may also be posting about other things as time goes by, as long as I have the time too as well. Thanks for reading. :)
It has been a while from the last post and somehow, it happens to be another Exia variant that gets reviewed. Technically G-Self, Try Burning and Star Winning are in queue but I felt like posting this first as I have a bit of time at hand. I somehow made it a habit to photograph what I build whenever I can so it may lead to a write-up when the chance comes around.
This is the Gunpla used by Kijima Wilfrid from Celestial
Being Sphere from Gunpla Academy. He’s one of the best of the best. Its main weapons are the GN Partisans that comes in a pair. It can split off and work as Bits. It has a special move call Transient Burst which he used later in the series (streams of blue particles in the form of wings appears on its back).
I’ll leave this here for your own interpretation of what is happening between the Hi-Mock and Star Winning Gundam.
What do you think happens at the end? :v
This was supposed to be for a short review on the Puccigguy (Burning Red) but there isn’t much to say. It has simple joints, much like an SD. The overall construction will only take you half an hour without advance techniques. A cute kit that will attract many hearts to purchase it too.
These shots were a random ongoing compilation of the good guy Hi-Mock.
This is just another one of those short posts since I haven’t posted any actual content on this blog for months again. As I pursue, slowly, my next stage of life, I became even busier than before. Those who know me would see occasional posts on a certain social website still.
At any rate, this piece of Amazing wasn’t planned to be bought so soon. I can call it a gift actually which I built with extra care as I haven’t built anything since Dark Matter. I’ve yet to build the RG Exia I bought as I really want to make it look nice, sans painting.
As for this Amazing Exia, its pretty much the same as Dark Matter, except you get a few more parts – at the same price. The colors are overall nicer to me although I prefer red over blue – Exia is nicer when its blue. Only when its in Trans-AM would red look good on it, at least for me. :p
One main thing to note is that Amazing didn’t have the problems I came across when building Dark Matter. Some of Dark Matter’s parts cracked when I was building it, to my surprise. Amazing is really solid, like any other HG Exia I built in the past. It truly is Amazing.
I was initially worried that the GN Sword shield would be 2-pieces like Dark Matter but it was completely different in shape and design. The shield was actually properly color separated. At the same time, I really wished they updated the Exia’s articulation like they did with Strike. Another time perhaps.
In short, Amazing Exia is a great buy for Exia fans and Build Fighter fans. The only negative is that the main body’s articulation is dated and inferior to the likes of Build Strike/Burning.
That’s all for now~
