Gunpla Loot!

So spent the weekend down in London for the Chinese and had to pleasure to pay a visit to Tokyo toys and the Japan centre for a bit of shopping. While not having much of a budget I did make a few purchases. What I picked up was

Dengeki Hobby Jan 2013 (Cosmic falcon episode)

G Generation SD Wing Zero custom

Gundam Age AG Spallow and Titus

Gundam Age 3 AG Fortess.

That leaves me just Age 2 Double bullet, Age 3 Orbit and Dark Hound to complete the main lineup.

I need to start putting stuff on ebay as I’m running out of space  but before I go I have to let you know that there is another 3 shops hiding in soho (London) that also sell Gunpla and Nendoroid/Figma figures!

Good night all.


Well just catching up on ガソダム Gundam news thank’s to Gundam Guy and he has posted up a information on the 電撃ホビー Dengeki Hobby Magazine September 2012, with the September issue you get the addon parts for the 1/144 scale ガソダム Gundam Age Artemis which fits both AGE 1,2 & 3 but is really designed as a replacement for the AGE 2 Double Bullet Armour.

I’ve got it on my Shopping list ready!

IMAGE to Follow.

Price = ¥1390
Pages = 358
Language = Japanese
Gimmik/Freebie = 1/144 Scale (NG) Gundam Kestral

I was rather intrigue when I saw Dengeki Hobby in a picture on Culture Japan So went about tracking down a copy. After ages of looking and not liking the results I remembered a company called Hobby Search They had it in stock so I ordered a copy. After a few hrs wait I got my receipt of ¥5,024 or £38.42 and nearly had a heart attack, “wow that’s and expensive mag”. After reading back through the receipt I realized the actual cost was only ¥1,324 and the rest was courier charges.

Well I ordered it on the 30th or march and it arrived yesterday (5th April) Now I understand the price tag, @ 358 pages this is no simple mag by UK standereds this is more of a catalog in terms of size (don’t let that put you off).
It’s full of article’s, has comics as well as the standered catalog items and will be a good read.

It come with a free kit (this month) of a 1/144 Gundam Kestral, in the Magazine it shows you how to assemble it into it’s strait build but also how to mod it to give it more articulation with clear instructions.

The molding of the kit is on par with that of my other Dengeki kits (GNR 000 SEFER) and my NG Aile strike.
Overall the magazing is great and the kit just tops it for me but at £38 per issue I will only be able to get the odd copy.

That’s all for now つづく
