Gunpla, Kamen Rider, LoL, and other random goodnes
Sooo I havent posted in forever

I havent posted anything in a while because I built this blog around my Gunpla hobby and general fandom of Japanese culture. Due to moving this past year to a town where I dont have taxes taken out Ive had to pay close to $200 in taxes for end of the year. Also I paid my Quarter 1 taxes. So basically Ive had no money to purchase any kits. So today I log on to FB and I see R4L (full disclosure im an affiliate) is having a 25% off sale. Details here. So I log on and purchase a Shenlong MG and a Wing Gundam SD kit that I wont bother linking. Im excited since I finally have a chance to build again. 

Quick side note. Super excited about MG Figurerise Tiger and Bunny. Will be buying those hopefully on release.

Soooo R4L has the SD Heavyarms I wanted on sale this week. And I picked up a little something extra as well. Go now buy the Heavyarms!

mechanocomplex:

rrobbert184 - Reviews too many things. Too many things to the point where it becomes messy. Advertisements…One in the beginning, one in the end…AND NOW ONE IN THE MIDDLE.

vegeta8259 - Happy medium, great paintjobs. Sadly has ads now, but I understand he probably has to use that to help pay for the kits and supplies. 

CitrusJuiceBox - NO ADVERTISEMENTS! Detailed, very detailed and long. Long videos dedicated to one kit, which is great if you want to know something about a particular kit in great detail. Also, great clean, professional intros. Sponsored by Robot4Less.

Prime92 - …That microphone, it makes it hard to focus. TT Hongli reviews…Not cool. Presentation quality not as good as the other three reviewers…Seems a little disconnected from certain issues that a model may have. i.e. Basing Perfect Zeong’s excellence only on it’s size, without harping on issues the kit may have.

00gundamreviews - Very personalized and interactive channel, I’m unfamiliar with how his channel used to be BEFORE it shut down, but great anyway. Sponsored by Tatsu Hobby.

GunplaTV from HobbyLink Japan - They don’t really do reviews I know, but they’re a fun channel to watch anyway. Syd and Ryan’s joking around and etc makes it a real treat to watch. They even do tutorials now and again, granted Syd is no master at modeling but his tips are pretty good. I feel as if I learn a little more from Brian and his Boss Builds segments when it comes to washing, and airbrushing even if it’s not gunpla-related.  

These are the only reviewers I watch regularly per say…And these are only my opinions. So, yeah. Haha. Crucify me, agree with me, it’s your call.

I agree with all the above. I was subscribed to Prime92 then unsubbed when she just started buying every kit released and reusing the same paint scheme over and over. Vegeta is prob my favorite. Very helpful as well if you PM him or contact him on Twitter.

All done. Took me way less time than i thought it would. Looks like I may break out MG Sinanju and skip the custom paint job so I have something to do.
