Hiatus and the such

Well, seems I basically forfeited my work shop to our new kitten, I’ve been unable to work on any Gundam projects for a while.

I still have a ton of projects in the hopper, but right now, I have no room to work so I’ve been on Hiatus.

I have, of course, been steadily working on my Transformers collection, but that requires no work space, just shelf space.

I’m also working on clearing off some shelves and have thrown a few things onto eBay.  One item is my GFF FAZZ figure, up for purchase here.

I know it says no international shipping, but I can always make exceptions if necessary.

I will also be selling off my Nintendo 3DS with a copy of SD Gundam 3D as well and will post it here when its up if anyone’s interested.

I’m going to still try and stay active in the community as best I can, but I do apologize that I’ve been out of the circle for a while.  Life happens as they say.

 

Edit:

Ebay stuff here.

3DS here.

Holy Cow, its April!

Whoops.  Apparently I took some more time off without realizing it.

Things have been sort of chaotic for me the last 6 months or so.  Nothing too crazy, but I’ve been busy with work and family and havne’t had a lot of time for working on Gunpla models.

In fact, I haven’t even tried using my new air compressor I bought a while back!
But that’s going to change.  I’m going to be making a big  push to get motivated.  I’ve got the MG RGM-79 to prime and get working on, as well as the other GM units I need to finish.  I need to learn to balance my Gundam and Transformers interests better so they don’t dominate the other for stretches of time.

But we’re getting a kitten soon and I need to figure out how to set up my airbrush in my office as it will be her room as well and I don’t want to have her dealing with all that.

So…..long story short – Korewa Gundam will be more active soon, but there’s a lot to do still around the house!

MS Gundam Extreme VS new DLC Tomorrow 1/26

Ah, good, the new DLC will be released tomorrow for Gundam Vs. Extreme.

This will include:

Freedom Gundam

Zeong

Hi-Nu Gundam (For those who didn’t get the code included in the game.  I did, so I already have the Hi-Nu.)

I’m looking forward the the Freedom.  Say what you will about Seed and its Characters, I do like the designs of the series and I’ve always liked the Freedom (much more than the Strike Freedom, which seems like a Hi-Nu rehash).

I’ll probably get the Zeong at some point too, but I’m hoping we’ll see a few more DLC units released.

 

 

Current Projects – Gundam…and Transformers

So I’ve got two projects going on right now:

First – the MG 1/100 RGM 79 GM

I’m not going to be doing anything too special with the GM – its going to be part of my 3 MS, 0081 GM diorama (or display) – no color changes or anything like that, just my usual detailing parts.

Now, while I’m slow to get really underway on the GM, I’m currently working on a much easier, unrelated Transformers project.

Before KO Toys went out of business (DANG YOU HAS/TAK!!!) – I was able to pick up the DIY Sideswipe kit, which is a not assembled Classics/Universe Sideswipe, available in various colors.  I picked up Black.   The pieces come sort of scrambled and its up to the buy to be able to assemble the figure correctly, but luckily, I have both Red Alert (a Sideswipe Redeco) and SunStreaker who uses an identical mold.

So I’ll have to paint the parts I need colored.  I’m going to hand paint things because, 1.) I’m lazy, and 2.) this isn’t a gunpla and so I’m not going to put the effort into it like I would a Gunpla kit.

But I’m going to make the figure into the Stunticon, Wildrider!

For those of you who don’t know much about the G1/Classics universe of Transformers,  The Stunticons were a team of four cars and a semi (Wild Rider, Breakdown, Deadend, Dragstrip and Motomaster) who could combine into a Gesalt Robot: Menasor.  I had the original G1 figured back when I was a kid, and seems the DIY SideSwipe kit came with the Resculpted Breakdown head from Botcon 2010 – I’m going to make a pretty cool Wildrider with it (Seems I have a Breakdown, who’s white and thus, not ideal for this kit).

 

So that, plus Skyrim on PS3 are my current projects (and DC Universe Online and Gundam Vs Extreme….)

NEW MS Gundam Extreme Vs DLC Coming

http://www.b.bngi-channel.jp/gdexvs/download2.html#movie

 

But “Meh”…I say.   MEH.

 

The O and Katajina’s custom whatever it’s called (I never bothered to learn the names of the V Gundam MS…)

 

Bleh.   After starting with the BD-1, this is kind of a let down, but I’m guessing they’re going to keep the DLC coming for a bit, so that’s good.  I’m hoping we’ll get:

Gundam Mk II (AEUG and Titans)

G3 Gundam (with Sayla Mass?)

Gundam Nataku or Sandrock

Gundam Leopard

Impulse Gundam

Etc…

MS Gundam Extreme Vs – EDITORIAL

I need to recant a statement in my last post – MS GE Vs’ “Mission” mode is actually far more involved that I understood it to be, which is awesome!

So…..wow…this game right now is unstoppable.

My new favorite move:  Using the Double X’s stun move, where it throws one of its beam sabers at an enemy to stun it and keep it still, then unleashing the dual satellite cannons.  Sure its a little over kill, but then again, what isn’t in this game, haha.

 

End of the Day – Edit –

Mission mode is now my all time favorite!!  You can use any MS, and earn points to level up your units stats.  My X1 kai now starts each mission with 800 HP!  WOOT!  LOVE IT!
