MG GN-X Review


Click to Enlarge

It was a surprise to all when Bandai announced that the second kit to get Master Grade treatment from Gundam 00 would be the GN-X. It's not exactly one of the fan favorites, I really hated it since day one. However I decided to order one of these new kits and hope for the best. When the order shipped I was indifferent. When I started construction I was filled with annoyance. Now that she's finished, I'm filled with a sort of odd, warm, fuzzy feeling.

MG Nu Gundam - Clear Part Campaign Review


One kit I managed to acquire recently was the re-released MG Nu Gundam w/ clear parts per Bandai's "Clear Part Campaign."

I say re-released because unlike the MG Victory w/ clear parts, which featured the initial release with an extra runner thrown in and a slip on the box, the MG Nu box is all new. Well, and all new print. The design is the same, just a yellow banner around the outside, some new tags, a picture on one side of the clear parts.

All of the other runners are exactly the same as before, but now there's an additional clear "G" runner. It contains parts for the fin funnels as well as the outer armor for one leg and one arm.

So, without further ado, some poor snap shots of the clear parts themselves...

Bandai MG Victory Gundam Ver. Ka Review


Click to Enlarge

Welcome to my review of Bandai's Master Grade Victory Gundam, Ver. Ka. Since this isn't a straight build I've broken up my review into two segments. The first talking about the kit itself and the second a review of my design and paint choices.

Note that for some images in my review I use images from's review. Let's just say I'm too frustrated/lazy to transform and photograph.

The Kit

The Victory Gundam is one of my favorite Gundams from a design perspective. To me its simple design and functionality are more aesthetic than anything from SEED or 00.

Dry Brushing Tutorial, finally done!


Behold, the legs of my MG Victory Gundam...


What a fucking nightmare this kit has become. A full review should be coming soon. Bah.

In the meantime, I finally finished the dry brushing tutorial for the Guide. It only took so long to post because I've been faaar to lazy.

Also, enjoy the typos and bad grammar while it lasts. I'm bound to properly proof read sometime this week...
