After a month or so of shipping delays on Bandai’s part, I received my red MG Full Armor Unicorn Gundam today!… And there are some things about it I’d like share with you all.  I made a video, but here’s the good stuff:

  1. Super bright plastic for the Psychfrome plates!
  2. R1 plate returns (open V-fin + no vulcan head parts)!

And that’s it.  For that bad…

  1. Fewer decals (top pic: expectable, since Ver. Ka always has more).
  2. Significantly cheaper materials (bottom pic: left is Red, right is Ver. Ka; the new plastic looks cheap and feels more brittle).

If you’re still teetering on picking up one these on the second-hand market, my advice to you is “don’t.”  Unless you have an insatiable need to scratch an itch for a FAUG with a red Pyschoframe (like I do), there’s absolutely no reason to pay the premium to buy this thing.

Old Toonami bumps!  I hope I’m not breaking any rules, since the Toonami soundtracks were all freely distributed at some point.

I uploaded the LEGO Digital Designer file here.  If you don’t have LDD, you can download it from LEGO directly.  You can generate building instructions in the program.

【ミレバワカル?ポージング】第22回メタモルフォースシリーズ「ダイノゲッター2」のポージング写真解説。「ティラノモード」。台座の見え方を参考に角度をあれこれ変えて同じようにポージングさせて遊んでみてください。(写真3枚目からスタート)

撮影チョイテク(http://mirebawakaru.tumblr.com/post/96072323537/metamor-force-2)こちらを見ながらポージングするとよりわかりやすいと思います。

(※商品にライオボードは含まれません)

(※合金パーツが使用されており重量がありますのでライオボードを使用する際は、支柱のネジを強く締めてください)

【コンセプト】
写真を見て真似することで可動ギミックの気付きや可動域について知ってもらい自分なりのかっこいいポージングを見つけて欲しい、遊び尽くして欲しいと思います。

勝手に決めたワンポイントアドバイス

・口をあんぐりと開けて獲物を追い回すようなイメージでポージングしています。

・首から尻尾にかけてなだらかなカーブを描くように各部を調節します。

・首は可動域が特に広く、動かしやすいですが上部のカバーが本体から離れすぎるとラインが崩れるのでそこに気をつけながら動かします。

・腰をわずかに捻らせることで、尻尾を根本から曲げることができます。

・両腕は派手に動かさずに内側に捻るように調節するとそれらしくなります。

・片足を大きく振り上げるような形にして躍動感を出しました。

・台座の補助なしで自立できるようにバランスを取ります。

・足首の爪を広げて安定感を出します。

And it’s actually purple!!  I’m absolutely ecstatic; definitely picking one up!

The Episode 7 version of HGUC Rozen Zulu came out today, and I have a happy discovery to announce!  Thanks to manual scans from HobbySearch, it looks like the new kit includes all of the parts from the original HGUC!  Although the new kit does not use the original right arm, all of the parts for it are still on their respective trees.  All we need now is to see if Bandai cast the new kit in the right colors.  If they did, then I’m definitely picking up another Rozen Zulu!

Here’s my first video in more than a year!  I upgraded from my iPhone 4 over Christmas, and this is the first time I’ve really put its camera to good use.  (Well, as good a use as any of you will see, anyway.)  Now that I have a decent set-up again, expect to see more videos soon!

I don’t even know how this is possible.

First time making a video in 1080p, and it’s a nightmare.

Here’s a sneak peek at that “something” I mentioned last night! In the meantime, check out my Instagram. I’ve been posting exclusive stuff over there!
