Jeeze, I didn’t realize it’s been 20 days since my last update.
Anywho – here in the states, last Thursday was Thanksgiving, marking the start of the Holiday season. So things will be a bit crazy for the rest of the year, but I still plan on getting a lot done on my project list.
I’ve picked up a PS3 (finally) and actually picked up MS Gundam: Crossfire for like $7 bucks. It’s a great game. People seem to hate it for some reason, but I truly have enjoyed playing it, and will do a review on it as soon as I can get around to it.
My order from SG Gunpla arrived right on time, and I’m thrilled with the metal upgrade parts. I’m still working on the Blue Destiny project, and will hopefully finish this week, but don’t hold me to that. In the meantime, here’s a peek at the torso/backpack.
So I’m pretty excited – I found a new site today that offers a really great (and better yet AFFORDABLE) selection of Gunpla kits and supplies.
The site is called GunplaSG – and they have one particular item I’ve been looking all over for – METAL UPGRADE PARTS – I just bought a bunch of thrusters and even a set of beam rifle barrels this afternoon, I can’t wait, and will be utilizing them with the Blue Destiny Project.
They also have the resin Shot Lancer weapon for the Crossbone Gundam X1 & 2- I want to pick that up and maybe I’ll even get the combo set which includes better thrusters and revamp my X1 next.
Anyway, definitely check this place out – I know I’ll be going back for more supplies –
Well…a couple of things:
I have Bandai/Namco to blame for my lack of progress on other projects. SD Gundam G Generation Wars is quite a handful. The game encompasses everything from Mobile Suit Gundam through OO Gundam, and is broken up between four senarios – Original Generation (0079 through 0133 V Gundam), Another Generation (G Gundam through Turn A Gundam), New Generation (Seed through OO Gundam) and Ex Generation, which is a series of challange missions.
The game is pretty amazing. It uses the same engine as G Generation Spirits – but for obvious reasons, the stories are vastly abridged to make room.
Still, I’m about 30 hours in and still loving it. There’s nothing like Kira Yamato piloting the Strike Noir, joining Garod Ran in the X Divider duking it out with Char in the Nightingale.
The other project I’ve been working on is the Blue Destiny (again).
After much delibertating – I’ve decided to rework the entire model from the ground up. When I first picked up the conversion kit, it came with the parts to make either the Blue Destiny 1 or 2 (or 3 ) – for some rediculous reason, I decided to toss the BD 2 parts…….I have no idea why. SO…..as an alternative, I’m doing my own take on the Blue Destiny Design. Consider it a Ver. Apt.
So that’s all for the moment. I’ll be working on the Blue Destiny all week and will have some more updates. Honestly though, I finally picked up a PS3 this weekend so that should be arriving this week too. We’ll see what happens. MS Gundam 0081 is out and I’d like to look into that.
