Update Tizzle

Ok I really hate updating my blog without some sort of picture so here is a totally not perfect pic
w00t 0 Gundam I know I know, I took this and it was kinda blurry but at least its something! I painted the blue Metallic Blue and thats about it. I'm gonna panel line this guy and try to clean him up as much as possible. I'm really not feeling 1/144's as much as I was before I dunno if I was just really lazy or what but I think this one might be my last 1/144, although I really want Ribbons Gundam. I also stopped liking SD kits as well but I might grab Strike Freedom to match my Destiny Gundam.

Quick Rant on the 00 Raiser PG I'm not really feeling the 0 Raisers Extras, and im still not really feeling the kit itself. I really do agree with ZversusZ, on the premise of them splitting the kit in two. If they ever did that I would probally buy 00 PG first lol But as far as PG's go I still would like to get maybe Astray Red seeing how thats my fav PG at the moment. I would also like 1/60 Freedom ^_^

Now Black Friday is over I can focus a bit more on my kits, I made out pretty good this Black Friday. Gripped Some Blu Rays (Spiderman 3/Matrix for 12 bucks and Xmen Orgins Wolverine for 9.99) Gripped Borderlands and Uncharted 2 and got some component cables for my wii ^_^ Good times now I'm gonna try and finish some kits and some games mop up some anime and wait till Katsucon 16, which is in FEB I believe. Hopefully I can get all my kits done by then >_< I still need some paint so I will try to hit up hobby town in two weeks and try to grip somethings, I still havent heard from them with the whole contest thing I won. If I win nationally I can get a 500 dollar gift card to HobbyTownUSA hopefully that can buy me a airbrush kit and some more paint :-)

My Wife makes Themed cakes now (Gonna make her a website soon) so my question of the day is can I buy a airbrush kit for my gundams and just buy a different kit (not compressor but the part the paint goes in) for her to use to spray her cakes? Or should I just buy two air brush kits?

Quick Rant

With all these sites throwing up PG 00 Raiser I can't help to think I would want it but man that price tag is a little up there. Correct me if Im wrong but wouldn't it translate into 400 something USD? Granted your getting this huge kit with alot of pieces but 400 though?

I love 00 Raiser, regardless of my situation as far as having kids bills etc I would love one but I just can't justify that much money for something that ultimately would just sit in my display case. I am still trying to bring myself to buy a PG Astray Red Frame because that kit looks so sexy. Anywho whats your thoughts on buying PG 00 Raiser? Is it worth the price tag? Will anyone be getting it?

No really I will

Do some kits after black friday :-) I'm gonna start on 0 Gundam just because he will be easier and take less paint.

I also added my twitter link on the right hand side ----->

As you can see the review for Zenkaikon they had NOTHING to buy! At least what I wanted. They had no Force Impulse :-( So I think im going to save up for it and when Katsucon Rolls around ill be ready to buy ^_^

ATM im sick so I haven't been making that many updates or anything gunpla just alot of sleep and TLC. Black Friday is rolling around so I got somethings I need to pay for then. So I won't be buying any new gunpla until probally FEB because of Katsucon. So for now I think ill move the poll above to the right or if I can just throw in a new poll to see who wants to see which gunpla get built next. I need to grip some more paints too which hopefully I can do by this weekend.

I think thats it for my update I will be upping more videos from Zenkaikon all this week so stay tuned!

Zenkaikon Review

Ok So Zenkaikon where should I start...
Ok first of all for this to be a small anime con in or near philadelphia they did a good job. But because they got way more people than they thought they would, it seemed they was a bit understaffed and under equipped as far as computers for registry and some items for the video games etc.

So we arrived at Zenkaikon @ Raddison Hotel in King of Prussia. It looks nice on the out side but when we got out the car there was a large large line. 1 line for pre reg and one line to buy your tickets at the door. First of all you suppose to pre reg so you can get in faster and enjoy the con. That was not the case here they had like 1300 people pre reg, which is what you suppose to do, but I guess they only had like 1 or 2 computers to verify that you paided so it too us at least like 2 hours to get in. Once we get in guess what, we had to wait again just to get into the dealers room....

The Dealers room was pretty small and didnt have alot of stuff, but don't think thats bad thing. IMO for budget Otaku that can't make it to Otakon or Katsucon it was ok. I actually walked out of the con with nothing. The Gundams they had were ok stuff I already had 1 Black Titan MG I didnt want to spend 44 bucks on. If they had anything else I sure didn't see it I was probally waiting in line >_> My friend Knowone brought a messenger bag, this being his second con he probally got more out of it than I did.

Next up the panels anime viewing and video games. All sucked, the game room was on these old cathode ray tubed tv's. The movies were on projectors that looked like they were from a old highschool although I did get to watch some of the power rangers the movie .. um movie lol I only went in to rest my feet from the long waiting in line. Then we went to King of Prussia to eat and I brought a spiderman button for my messenger bag from the comic book store and thats about it. I went to the con with like 80 bucks in hand left with 60 (20 for food the button and gas)

Zenkaikon (from what I hear) is like a snow ball rolling down a hill getting bigger with each turn. I heard that most of the people last year looked like a small kiddy pooly compared to this years. IMO the con has potential. They need to get some more merchants and a bigger area and be prepared for more people next year. For the local that has never been to a con its good. I think ill wait for the merchant list to get bigger to go back next year. So far as the most fun cons right now its Otakon Katsucon NYAF then Zenkaikon. If your local go check it out next year but don't expect it to be the hottest thing ever.

Last thoughts
The Cosplay's were pretty cool:

excuse the red eye and ill make sure I make a slide show of all the pics later

Wednesday, November 4, 2009


Man im tired. Couple more days till Zenkaikon... I alreayd brought my tickets so I will be there! Looks like Mg Force Impulse won the polls thats pretty nice!
So ill look for Force Impulse or a Eva Kit (I want 00 or Type F) and what other little things I can get.

Zenkaikon website updated with schedule and maps etc its shaping up to look pretty nice. Hopefully I will have the camera with me and ill take tons of vids! I almost have my full 1000 in Borderlands that game is so fun. I also have to finish MagnaCarta 2. Umm what else I hopefully can buy some paint soon to finish up my kits >_>

Thas about it for a update though stay toon for Zenkaikon goodness!

Friday, October 23, 2009

Where do I start?

Well I kinda took a break off of everything. I have been playing my xbox just got to disc two of MagnaCarta 2 and man it so sweet. No Homo but I love Hyung-tae Kim, his artwork is so hot even from when he did the Art of the Wired. I gotta get around to buying some of his work to put in my basement and hopefully i can get some figures. Here is a couple pics

I really like the style of it still being anime but kinda still looking real. Anywho the game is so sweet and it keeps me on the game with the art style so much. Like i knew nothing of the game but when I heard Kim was on it I was like yo im gonna try to get as much GS in that game as I can. I love the game though im almost sad that when I beat it its gonna go into the pile of lost game memories lol but anywho pick it up its a nice action rpg.

Back onto the update I haven't done any kits since I went to the competition at hobby town usa. They haven't contacted me or anything either lol Hopefully I will be there tomm to order some paint. For some strange reason the prices of paint (sprays) went up so I been devising a plan to get some stuff in bulk. WIP stays the same but might grow a bit, which leads me to my next update,

ZENKAIKON 2009 I am going I will be getting my tickets next week and the following SAT ill be upping videos etc. So keep checking the blog and the vblog @ youtube for that. Other than that I think thats about it. Ill blog later with a want list for Zenkaikon each event I go to seems like I get more ways to find what I want with out taking away from the overall event. I might make a Convention Guide lol just for fun anywho thanks for reading stay tuned!

Updates Galore

Not Really but I personally think for anyone who might bump into my blog might be like hmm I wonder whats he doing or at least thats what I would think lol I'm really busy so I don't have much time to do my MG's I might attempt to do 0 Gundam just because its a easy build but I dunno. I also need to re-up on some paints, so we will see.

HobbyTown USA Contest & Philadelphia Gaming Expo

The competition at Hobby Town USA on Baltimore Pike, was really nice. Before I get into the details when I first got there, it was about 10 or so models there. All ranging from tanks/boats/planes/cars even a diaorama of like a pasture. Seeing how we was tryin to get down to the Gaming Expo, i told myself I would take pictures when we got back which they told me to get back @ 5. Long story short I got back and everyone already got judged and took there kits and left :-( I won the Adult modeling side and a little girl one the 13 and under with her diaorama which looked niced. Here is a pic of my kit:
You can also take a peek of it in my youtube over to the right. It was a nice feeling winning because they had some really nice kits there. I also thought my kit was abit rushed in some areas that I will try to fix up but all in all it came out nice. And you can't deny the hotness of Strike Freedom VS Destiny ^_^ On another note I wanna give a big thanks to Sopheaku for suggesting to put some tissue or paper towel in the wings to keep them up. At first I was like omg thats ghetto but I tried it and well u can see in the pic the wings are up!

So after we went to Hobby Town to drop off the kit, we (me and knowone) headed to the philly game expo. I'm gonna keep this really short, it phailed! lol nah it was cool but im not a big game buyer in the sense that I would buy old systems etc they had alot of vintage things and some cool things here or there. They had a free open arcade where I played some MvC2 and some different events I wasn't that interested in. I did see a pair of Spidey Air Force ones I wanted but I wasn't exactly big spender this time, plus im saving for Zenkaikon who was there and im so mad I didn't have 20 buks to buy my ticket :-( It was a nice thing to go to with 15 bucks to get in for 1 day but I definitely wouldn't have gone more than just 1 day. If your in philly when they come again check it out but don't expect it to be the best thing in the world. After checking that out we hit china town and was surprised that we couldnt find any gundams or anything anime related there :-( I found some knock off SD kits but they werent worth it.
Well here is some more random pictures and dont' forget to hitup my youtube page!
knock off yugioh toy
Sweet Sneaker Shop posing as a chinese store I give mad props to them for creatviity <- bad spelling
Kitt @ the gaming exp
Spidey and Goblin Model kits @ hobby town if anything I think ill buy the iron man version its like 30 bucks :-)

Ok So

I didn't notice how much I said that in my roughtly 16 Building Strike Freedom Videos. Anywho thats it. Hope you guys learned something form me building it. I think ill upload 3 more videos 1 with the finished guns and another one with a full 360 view of the kit and a quick review/mythoughts on the kit and then ill be on to my other kits.

I set the poll above so long ago but I think I set it with the mindframe I was buying gunpla at Zenkaikon in Nov. If they have gunpla ill try to buy the MG Force Impulse if it wins. I still have a big WIP ahead of me so I will slow down on buying kits. I do however would like a EVA kit so if they have one of those ill grab one too :-)

For w/e reason hobby town upped the prices for there Tamiya paints so unless I can find a good online distro ill have to figure out what im going to do. They went from 3 bucks a can to 6 bucks which is outrageous considering I brought the Fusion can for 6 bucks and it was almost twice the size. I gotta google Krylon Fusion and see if I can look at what colors they offer. The black on Strike Freedom came out excellent.

Heres a Updated list of Kits I want and my current WIP:

1/144 0 Gundam
MG Ignition Mode Exia
MG God Gundam
NG 1/100 Seravee Gundam

Eva Unit 01 Type F
Eva Unit 2 & 0 (blue or yellow)
MG Force Impulse
MG Hyaku Shiki (Gold Plated Version, Maybe)
1/144 Dygengar Kotobukiya

Thats all I can think of for the time being 2010 almost around the corner, will be waiting for Gundam Unicorn, and 00 movie to come out. Hopefully some new kits will arise around then.

Monday, October 5, 2009


Ok so bascially Strike Freedom is done I just need to finish the twin guns and he will be complete. And ill do a full review. I got some pictures I think ill hold off uploading until I finish the kit completely. Once I finish the kit its on to making a good pose but I got until Sat to do that I will try to use two of my green action bases. And I need to panel line Destiny to make him look a bit better. Right now im editing the videos for how I did everything for Strike Freedom. Unfortunely I didnt time myself while I was recording so I have to cut some videos so you might see like a video 3a and 3b since the youtube limit is 11 minutes. But for my second MG it looks really nice. Heres a teaser pic

EVA Kit!!!

Ok so after seeing my good friend KnowOne( make his Eva kit which is still in process of being built I started taking some interest in EVA kits. I always loved eva heck I named my first born after Rei. So I was going to get Eva 01 Type F or as I call him or I guess her.... anywho I was gonna get the revoltech one from AYAF but it was either that which kinda stood @ I guess a 1/144 or the 1/100 Seravee. We all know what I choose lol but I was looking around and saw this at GSAM.

Pic is kinda small but I just saw a review of it and man that thing is kinda big, bigger than I thought it would be. In hind sight I love the kit but im not too sure how im going to do it because the colors are kinda specific. So im on the fence on getting it, but man I would love to get this kit. Its going in my next poll I am looking for dygengar as well but who knows. I want to try some different kits besides Bandai. Well just a couple thoughts, I leave work soon so when I get home I can hopefully finish the robot part of Strike Freedom and the wings on the weekend


I got alot of kits on my hands. And if money permits ill be going to Zenkaikon in Nov. I know first of all next on my list is Force Impulse. After having now what 3 MG's not including Destiny I think I might strictly stay with MG kits. I will buy the occasional HG and NG here or there. As I was thinking about that I was trying to go through Dalong's MG list and see what I may want. And one kit stood out:

Unicorn and Hyaku Shiki. I'm kinda afraid of buying Unicorn for the simple fact the anime suppose to be coming out around 2010 and well who knows what they gonna put out around that time, look at how many Variations of 00 they have. Hyaku I want the gold version but hopefully I can get it at a good price. Well thats along time for me to even consider these kits but just thoughts.

I really hate when people read or hear me talk about something and think like oh yea thats what I'm goign to do with out even thinking about my current situation, im more or less making a verbal todo list that may or maynot be filled lol. But I figured I would blog randomly about my future in gunpla lol.

Strike Freedom MG PT2

Ok so now I started painting the gold pieces. I used Tamiya Gold and I have to say I wasn't expecting much, but as you can see in the picture
it came out alot better than I thought it would. After the second coat I did this morning I'm going to let it dry I think ill spray the matte
top coat on just because these pieces will be under the armor at least most of it so it might be hard to spray the coat.
Hopefully I can grab the HD Camera and make a video tonite. I denubed most of the parts that mattered everything else I can pretty much do on a as need basis.
The only thing I kinda hated about this kit is how many small pieces were in the kit. My daughter was nice enough to to lend me her Hello Kitty sandwich bags to put everything in
I got owned by the new knife i brought to cut the nubs :-(
And to add insult to injury I ran out of Gunmetal Grey which I hopefully can score a can of tonite at the hobby store.

So after a couple pints of spilled blood most parts are painted and hopefully I can finish up. I didnt spray all the gold parts just the parts I though would show if anything I can just spray individual parts later or hand paint them with my smaller paints
Stay tuned I will try to at least do the Head tonite and maybe the Torso. The real challenge just to let you guys know is the wings >_>

Strike Freedom MG PT1

Ok so my good friend Vektar schooled me to the ways of spray painting and gave me another tip. First of all to do this trick heres what you need:
Painters Tape!
I never tried it but it works nicely to do 3 things at once.
1.Spray the pieces
2. Cover Nubs
3. Keep Parts together

Before I would just keep them on the trees to make sure they wouldnt move but this method is better. It takes a bit more time but I think it will be worth it in the end.

I decided that I was going to paint my Freedom Different colors. Heres my paint scheme
Dark Blue = Black
Blue = Metallic Blue
Red = Metallic Red
Greyish Area on Rail Guns = Gunmetal Black
White = Untouched

Since I see myself using Black alot I figured I would try Krylon Fusion for Plastics
and I got some Krylon Matte Top Coat
I will say since im new to Krylon and im usually using Tamiya, there is a trick for Krylon to work perfectly.
First of all using Tamiya you only need one coat or at least a couple passes while its wet and it bonds great.
Krylon I found out I needed at least 3-4 coats. First coat looked like someone spilled oil or water on my pieces
and I was so scared. But I applied another coat looked better but still had some oily looking stuff applied another coat
was looking really good then I applied another coat and bam was perfect. Here are a couple pics the first are kinda dark u might not be able to see
what i was talking about but the finished product as you can see looks fantastic.

Messed up in IMO. Look at second pic the pieces on thebottom see how its not even?
These look better

Now looking at the Tamiya Spray which I only needed 1 Coat or i should say 3 passes left to right right to left and 3 passes up and down down and up
while it was still wet.

So this came out really nice and I have a new found respect for Krylon. Now I like the way this was done I am going to grab some more colors. They
range about 5-6 bucks a Can but as u can see from the pic below you get alot more, and it has a cool nozzle to change the direction of the paint.

So now all thats left is cutting and denubbing all the gold parts and spraying with my Tamiya Gold then its time to assemble this bad boy and
panel line as I go. After I finish this kit I'm going to do some touch up work on Destiny and then its off to the competition.

Wednesday, September 30, 2009


Ok I been really busy at work but let me give you guys a quick run down of whats going on. I got alot of stuff to do at work so I won't be able to keep the website updated this week but ill try my best. First of all NYAF aka New York Anime Festival.

It was my frist time going it was really fun. Would I go back yes! Would I go for all three days? No. The Cosplay was kinda scarce but it could just have been me. I had alot of fun and brought somethings but this being my 3 Con I have been to I wasnt too impressed. I still rate them Otakon/Katsucon/NYAF. Just to let you guys know I am still going to Zenkaikon in Nov so ill let u know how that goes. As far as gunpla Here is what I got from NYC when I went.
God Gundam MG
Seravee 1/100
Reborn Button
Core Drill Necklace

I got God Gundam from Image Anime and I got the rest from the con. I had fun though don't get me wrong. NYC was nice this was like my second time going. And I totally forgot about peeping china town (tt hongli's) I will go back soon so hopefully I can just check out some other things in nyc.

As a Update as far as kits I am working on Strike Freedom MG right now just finished spraying some parts last night. I am working on him first because I am trying to enter a competition on Oct 10th. I had some pics but I left the camera so ill make sure I bring them to work tomm or ill try to upload them to the blog tonite. So after Freedom is done I have MG Ignition Mode Exia, Seravee, 0 Gundam HG, and God Gundam. Lots of kits. I don't think I'm going to buy another kit until at least 3 of these are finished lol But hopefully I can get a good price on Force Impulse when I go to Zenkaikon. I wanted Reborn's Gundam but they wanted 30 bucks for it at Image Anime and after I said my Nani's I left with Mg God Gundam which looks so sweet.
Heres a couple pics of Image Anime for those who never been there, the store is kinda small..
High Priced Reborns Gundam

So for now thats all for the update I'm going to see if I can make some kinda picture gallery soon after I do all my kits but thats another wip. I will try to update this week but kinda busy till next update cya! oh and check my youtube for videos too I made a slideshow of the stuff at NYAF
