Are there any B-club conversion kits that you want released as an actual HGUC or an HGAU kit. There are some mobile suits I want to be released as a 1/144 kit like the GN-X IV or a GM Sniper II but there is no way in hell am I gonna spend something almost equivalent to a PG only to have it in 1/144 scale.

What are your general impressions of the Robot Damashii line in terms of product quality? I've been mostly satisfied aside from my Destroy Mode Unicorn that won't stay together due to a very loose midsection joint and my Aile Strike with a loose shoulder.

Thanks for making such a great show! Thinking about finally trying Gunpla thanks to you :).

Hello Andres and Keith.
Got 2 questions for you guys, first time posting here in the mailbag.
And a quick note for these questions tey aren't my first Gunpla I have built but it is my first MG.

1.I want to ask for advice when putting parts together and sometimes even though you assmebled it properly you get very slight gaps or like the plastic didn't clip down 100%, I sort of had this whilst building my 1/100 MG Gundam Mark 2 on the white wrist sections, I did come up with a solution myself for this though.
So what solutions have you used?

2.On a quick note, have you ever had a part break whilst applying pressure to assmble a heel section of a foot?
I did, fortunately I got the other pieces out of the red parts and have ordered a new J Red set for a foot from GGInfinite.
So got any sites you would recommend?

That is it, thanks guys, also Keith I share your thoughts on Wing Zero Custom(I hate and it like the original Wing Zero far more so) never liked the angel wings, nor some of Katoki's colour choices for EW.

Maybe you covered this already, but I'm really confused as to what the similarities and differences are between S.H. Figurearts, S.I.C., and D-Arts. What purpose do all of these different lines have other than to confuse me and make me buy more stuff?
Tell me why, at this turning point in our history, must we fight amongst each other and further pollute the earth?

Dear Laplace's Box,

Now that the grade has been out for a little bit, i was wondering your opinion on the AG Grade kits from Gundam AGE. They typically run pretty cheap on HLJ nowadays and I was wondering if that was a sign of their quality or not. Should i buy or wait till the Robot Damashii of the AGE mobile suits comes out and buy those? Thanks for your time and keep going with the podcast!

Ever purchased a kit/figure solely on looks? And have you ever done so, then been inspired to watch/read the works it was based on? I ask because I have recently become obsessed with the Kamen Rider Knight Figuarts despite having very little exposure to the show.

I have seen the Domon Kasshu and the planned Master Asia Sh Figuarts figures. My questions are:

Do either of you own Domon and if yes what are your impressions of the figure?
Would you like to see other pilots/characters from G Gundam or any other universe?

Personally I would love to see the other main characters from G Gundam as well as most of the cast from MSG, well who am I kidding I would love to see most of the main cast of all gundam in 6"-7" SH Figuarts. Well anyhow thanks for reading this. Have a good day/night.

I built a couple of the old Takara Votoms kits long ago...have you guys tried either the new Wave or Bandai kits, and what are your impressions?
