Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk IV

Since the designs of both Miss Sazabi and Rinascita have been discusssed ad nauseam, if the plamo designers can make the Crossbone Kai look half as good as it does on the show, then I'm buyin'. Also, I think Rain makes a way better announcer than Kirara (the cheater). Speaking of whom, being the off...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk IV

Judging from the preview, it looks like Sei and Reiji will face off in a friendly battle. It seems Sei was able to sneak in some practice between matches and fixing his Gunpla over and over again.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk III

This episode's clearly promoting all those optional weapon sets Bandai has dreamt up. Who would've thought those oversized hedge trimmers could do anything besides separate Gunpla parts. And what is the story 'behind' Ral's little problem?

Re: Christmas things you acquired(2013)

I bought myself a game for my Game Boy Advance a few weeks earlier. On Christmas Day, I got the usual socks from a neighbor. 2 days later I bought one of LEGO's mystery figurines while on an errand; coincidentally, I got a Holiday Elf.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

And I thought G-Saviour is de-canonized, so I guess Bandai changed their mind?
It's decanonized from the Universal Century's timeline. Its appearance here, while jaw-dropping, means nothing. Also, Alia looks like she's cosplaying one of the girls from Bubblegun Crisis.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

During the opening fight with GX-Bits did anyone else think that Reiji just blew $1200 worth of B-Club GX Bits?
Not if Not-Jamil scratch-built/kitbashed them.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

I have that kit, and Apsalus is at a really tiny scale that would only work for forced perspective dioramas. It would be useless for Gunpla Battle.
The Big Zam from Gunpla Builders packed a wallop, and it was only 1/550.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

/m/ is speculating that it's an amateur division for girls just starting out in the hobby and/or it's another sign of how Japan likes to keep things segregated. It's just there to give China the ability to get into Gunpla Battles without getting curbstomped by anyone who isn't Sei. Maybe we'll see ...

It's more effective than any shield you'd get in a Zelda game, that's for sure.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

@ 01:26, when they're analyzing the beam rifle, they suggest the barrel is using metal parts for better durability while the shield was double coated with extra plastic...in my eyes explaining why it looks like a cracker sandwich, lol.
A Wagon Wheel, cool.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

In what I'm sure was just the first of many appearances, I've come to hate Kirara about as much as I hated Wang Liu Mei after almost a season and a half of 00.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

For starters, I don't buy Reiji's story any more than Sei does. But I loved the way he owned those Zeon remnants with just a Ball; Shiro Amada would be proud. I'm pretty disappointed with Ral's in-ring debut, as well as with the screen time Ricardo Fellini and his Wing Gundam Fenice got. I did like ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk. I

In the preview for Ep. 3, I've noticed a model in space that appears to be a High Mobility Psycommu System Zaku or at least a custom painted Zeong. Also, the ED links Reiji with the Build Gundam Mk-II, leading the viewer to speculate that he'll eventually pilot both that and Build Strike, or that Se...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk. I

I just finished watching the first ep. Ok am I the only one who got the 'Tyler Durden/Fight club' vibe by the end of the episode? Anyone who has seen that movie will know exactly what I mean I don't think so. Remember that Rinko (Sei's mom), Ral, Sazaki and even that baker also see Reiji. And I rei...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk. I

Once again I've come late to the party, but for the most part this show's off to a good start. I almost cracked a gut over how it pimps Wing Gundam. And never in a Gundam show has the music got me so pumped for the action. I think we can all agree that the "Mr. Ral" cameo was awesome so I'll say no ...

Re: Gundam BF

The whole Builder/Fighter concept looks to be a Graham/Billy-type relationship; one kid building a model that suits the other kid's 'piloting' style.' Kinda like Asuno's junior mobile suit team.

Re: Gundam BF

It seems to have the Gundam-Arcade-Pod feel of Gunpla Builders but on a truly futuristic scale. They could've expanded GB further, maybe a few more anime shorts, but these days I'll take what I can get.

Also, HGAW WING GUNDAM!!!

Re: Best clear coat for Painted Kits?

I wouldn't put too much faith in Testors sprays. I've made the mistake of using them on my models before testing them and they took an eternity to dry. Krylon brand products has gotten lots of positive feedback, but I also recommend testing them.

Re: zeta gundam and feminism

As far as soldiers letting their emotions cloud their judgement, it's not just the girls. And any high talk (and criticism) I ever hear about women usually comes from Scirocco, and it's no secret he gets off of manipulating women and members of his own gender. Despite this, I've found most of the Ze...
