Dengeki Hobby Jan Issue!~
As you can.. RX-78-2 has a cameo here because this month's issue is...
ALL THAT RX-78!! ^^
heh, since its all about RX-78, i decided to take him out for a shoot.. bang.
This is my first fully painted model kit.. RX-78 fits the title of first Gundam.. =) ohh.. for newer readers.. you can read my past working progress for this kit here! ^^
now back to jan issue of Dengeki... loved the cover page. actually its not a MG Unicorn as i've tot.. its actually a 1/48 Conversion kit.. woah.
Jus a bit of this month's coverage.. The history of how Gundam started.. from the first RX-78..
Did you know Gundam started out as a 合体 gattai (machines that combines to form a ultimate form) too?? check out the toy above!! its called ガンダムＤＸ合体セットGundam DX Gattai Set.. that's G-armor origin!! cool! ^^
Soon more improvements follows.. till we finally get our RX-78!
yups.. this month's first coverage is abt the whole history of RX-78.. how its came abt.. and its development... good read! the 2nd coverage is abt the review of HGUC Unicorn Gundam and Destroy form... and lastly the 3rd coverage is abt PG Raiser! me haven read till there yet.. =P
and btw... how can i forget abt this gift?? XD
RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Head Display Base
Box cover.. with the Gundam's specifications behind..
I have not open this kit yet... =) since some of you have alr open it.. you can see it from rockleelotus's post for the completed model and runners inside.. the magazine gave alot of great ideas for this display base other den using it for gundam.. some ideas included were coverting it into a computer card reader or insert a LED inside!! the results are damn cool.. A USB memory stick anyone? XD this gave me a confidence boost.. becos i am thinking of coverting it for my MG Unicorn.. (aww.. smthing boring rite.. lolx. maybe all of the above! MG base + memory card reader + LED lights = GG.) yups.. i've plenty of time to think it thru..
and last but not least....
the loots i've gotten last sunday.. muahahahahhaa... ^^
Four HG Gundam 00 kits!! =DD Exia, Dynames, Kyrios and Virtue.
hehh.. yups.. the SHHHH loots i've mentioned in my previous post.. me bought 4 HG kits last sunday at a departmental store... Robinsons! they were having a 4-days Xmas sale (i've been waiting forever for this..) and all items were at 20% off! i happened to have some cash vouchers in my hands from participating in a survey.. heh. so after scouring all robinsons' outlets, to my surprise, i managed to find these kits hiding behind all the newer 00 kits.. and dug them out. ^^ after the discount, they're slightly cheaper than most local hobby shops.. so i used my cash voucher and only paid an extra of $20+SGD for this lovelies.. =D
wondering why i din get the newer Gundam 00 kits? hmmm, even tho i haven watched Gundam 00 S2.. but after looking at the newer 4 Celestial Being Gundams, i really liked the older Gundams.. it gave me a more down-to-earth rather than a 'i-am-imbal-you-cant-beat-me' feel. and especially after old Lockon passed on.. the feeling.. T.T well, another thing that got me buying these kits is becos im inspired by my iphone wallpaper.. heh. i've gotten it for a long time.. and finally i can realise it.. in 3D!!
My iphone wallpaper.. Now you understand where im heading towards.. a Diorama! XD
except that the Ptolemaios and the pilots are not in it..
Dun get me wrong.. i still LOVE PG 00 Raiser.. lolx.. its jus that its on a different level.. =) alrites.. im done with today's post! thanks for reading.. heh. i definitely try to start on them when i do have the time.. but right now room reno takes priority.. i need a place to slp.. build gunpla and display my collection!! =D so its delay is for a better cause.. im sure you great pple will understand.. haha. going back to paint now.. see you pple ard! take care! ^^
