Happy New Year!


I would like to say Happy New Year for everyone from Sydney! This year's firework festival is solid just like last year. I would say Sydney is one of the best place to see Firework Festival in the New Year Eve with 15 minutes of spectacular non stop of fireworks shower. I hope in 2011 i will be able to provide everyone with better reviews of Plamo also i got some Big projects around this year as well please look forward for it!

1/60 VF-19 Kai announced!


Well Yamato is kinda late to release this Valkyrie as their Macross toys lineup but at last. This Variable Fighter belong to the Lead of Fire Bomber Band, Nekki Basara who is main protagonist in Macross 7. The Quality of the toy definitely surpass Bandai's Hi Metal lineup. I wonder if Yamato plan to release the rest of Fire Bomber Valks(VF-11 definitely looks really girlish). I would say Fire Bomber's song are the best overall songs in Macross series and I am quite a fan of them.

Choudenjii Reppu Seikenzuki



This is the Three Man Combination attack of Nagahama Trilogy Robots. I decided to link the video  when i see the combination attack during my playthrough in SRW @3 and it is really amazing with 70s Mecha awesomeness. This combination attack is also known as Nagahama Special by SRW fan where Nagahama refer to Tadao Nagahama, creator of Nagahama Trilogy. The trilogy consist of 70s Super Robot Series: Combattler V, Voltes V and Daimos. If Nagahama didn't die i bet he will be a good rival of Go Nagai. i would say the Combination attack is as awesome as Final Dynamic Special of Go Nagai series.

Merry Christmas!


Well it is near the end of the year already and time flow really fast. Merry Chrismas for everyone and may you have great experience during this time ^_^. The Christmas on the picture is taken in Martin Place and this tree is pretty big! roughly around 8 to 12 metre tall. One suggestion if you want to visit Australia is never come to Sydney during Christmas day because you won't be able to go anywhere considering most of the stores are closed though you would to visit here when the New Year Eve is celebrated. I guess most western countries also have same situation with Sydney during the christmas.

Fate Zero got anime adaptation


At first i thought the news is a hoax but it seems that it happens to be true. Ufotable is the one working on the anime so expect something better than the UBW movie. At last we can see how badass Kiritsugu will be and probably the servant i will be looking forward in action is no other than Berserker.

Anyway here is the link:

Package from Hobbysearch


Well Last Friday i picked up the SAL package of Hobbysearch from my local Post Office. The package delayed up to a month and supposedly to be the part of loot thread last week. I suppose it can't be helped that time around November-December is pretty busy for Japan Post which cause the delay. I managed to get these kits when hobbysearch had bargains on those. if i had not bought it, the kits would sold out already in an instant. I will give a try with Frame Arms kits though i suppose they really need plenty of paints in order to match the sample.

D-arts Rockman X announced


Just got the info from Gundam Guy, from what i know it appears that this one is different with the Rockman lineup released by Kotobukiya. X share good amount of popularity just like his older brother, the Classic Rockman. I don't think i will get this version of X and would prefer to have X in Shadow Armor or Ultimate Armor. I suppose there is a good chance for X to get another armor version. I hope there will be Zero in Rockman Zero version as well if it get a chance to be released.

ACE portable 2nd PV



The PV is out yesterday and just like the ACE R counterpart which shows the roster units and indepth gameplay mechanism though it is not as dazzling as ACE R. From the PV there are some key points that i will point out:

  • The recurring units have most if not all moveset same with the previous ACE installations
  • The 00 Gundam series include both season(hope we are not stuck with Exia and 00 only)
  • 1 Sub Weapon displayed at a time
  • No Originals yet.
I hope this series at least has one original since it won't be ACE if not so. I will looking forward with SEED Destiny , Macross Frontier and Lamune(Protagonist really sound like 80s mecha protag) units considering i have used most mecha from previous ACE other than R. This seriies would be a good introduction for those who haven't played ACE before considering it has most of the previous ACE installment.

1/8 Sill Plain


Well if this Figure was still in stock i would have bought it already. Sill is the main heroine of Rance Series who is the loyal companion of Rance. Sill is my favorite heroine in Rance since she is really care Rance despite plenty of abuses she had(though Rance actually really care for her). Sill wear the kimono during the Rance travel in JAPAN which occur during Sengoku Rance which i find the outfit really cute compared to her magician outfit.

SRW OG Inspectors episode 11


I decided to watch the Raw Version 11th Episode since i find it too long to wait for the subs. Overall i can understand 70% to 80% of the content. In this episode we will see Arado doing the combat simulation with Alteisen then followed with Lamia drinking Kusuha Health Drink(another victim fallen for her drink) and in the last half of the series Garret Kenneth launch Coup D'etat to EFA meanwhile the main cast are fighting against DC backed up by Shadow Mirror and Axel sortied in in Ashsaber while Arado sortied with Incomplete Wildwurger armed with M95 machine gun only. I really love to see Wildwurger appear though it is not the time for it to shine yet since i predict that Wurger will be shot down in next episode considering little can be done by Arado without Beetle Crusher and Metal Sword  . Probably in episode 12 we will see Vindel personally enter the combat with his Zweizergain wonder if Zengar will appear as well?

As for episode 9 and 10 , i was really amused by episode 9 and it is the best episode so far for me with Trombe in action and the breaking of 4th wall by Vigagi. While for episode 10 i am not really amused with it though the battle costume of Latooni and Shine is pretty cute and that Royal Heart Breaker however the mech that Archibald piloted is quite ugly for a Lion Series.

HLJ Early Christmas Sale


HLJ had another sale this time after the black friday, the items on sale are not that great yet since this is just the beginning part of the Christmas sale of HLJ. 50% off for Fedex is not tempting for most people considering it is still costly using this method of shipment. The items that are interesting for me are the Layzner kit and Chogokin Macross Quarter which are both 50% off. Too bad i won't be getting anything for now since i  already have plans for what to get for my christmas loot. Expect Hobbysearch or Amiami will respond anytime soon which i predict it will be next week(well i hope they do!).
