1/500 Yamato 2199


 Ever since i become follower of Space Battleship Yamato through Yamato 2199, i have been looking for a definitive Physical representation for the badass Battleship and now finally find one! The one that will be added to my collection is the 1/500 Model Kit of the Yamato 2199 made by Bandai. It cost around 10000 Yen but it is 60 cm size model so the price is worth it. The Model kit comes with the miniature model of the Cosmo Ace and Falcon but have no LED gimmick. For this kit with this magnitude, i will definitely put an effort to install the LED for the Cannon, Bridge and the Booster. Apparently the 1/500 Yamato have expansion kit to add more details but i think the Base Model is more than enough for me. Apart from The 1/500 Yamato the other Kit that i will definitely get is Katou's version of Cosmo Falcon. Speaking of the series i think i should give the 2199 Movie and Warriors of love a watch soon.

Helldivers


 Played this game few days ago and instantly hooked into it! Helldivers is a coop top down shooter game but it has a perfect ingredients for its genre. One of the coolest feature in this game is that your results contribute to something greater. The current game is great but it has more potential. The instant i saw this game, i can see how easily it can be translated into Warhammer 40k considering the Over the top Propaganda style of the game and Helldivers enemy factions can be easily translated into Tyranids, Ork and Eldar/Tau Hybrid. I really look forward to this someday and might even get Gauntlets if it ever land on Vita.

Some Recent loots


 Working in a toy company can be both a blessing and a curse at the same time. You got to get first dibs on discounted stuffs or new toys but also got you to commit Impulse buy even more. Here are are some stuff that i bought from my workplace over past few months which include variety range of stuffs. I got myself my first Figma and Yamato Figurine which have some nice discounts. Watching Iron Blooded Orphans also make me get some of the 1/100 IBO Gunplas and probably snatching 1/100 Bael one of these days too. My company also happen to have now rare Full Metal Panic Figurine from Atelier Sai which would complement well with my Aoshima FMP Kit. I doubt i will be able to give proper review this year like my other toys but should have plenty of time by next year.

Full Metal Panic new anime season announced!


 Took long enough but finally Full Metal Panic got the anime continuation that it deserves after a year or two rumor. Titled Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory the series will be airing on Spring 2018. The Animation should continue where Second Raid took of and easily close the curtain of the series if the length will be 2 Cours. It took 10 years for the series to get a continuation due to stupid licensing issue but in a way the delay was a blessing itself. Because the animation quality could be potentially better so we are able to see Laevatein and Belial in full action. It appears that 2018 will be the year for Mecha after all with Heavyweight title like FMP and LOGH airing. Coming along with the new FMP season, we should expect more FMP merchandise flooding in and i hope Tessa and Chidori got a good quality figurine. Though i would look forward more to Aoshima's Laevatein and wonder if Kotobukiya is still going to release Belial model kit after 3 years.

Legend of Galactic Heroes Figurine announced!


 Wow this completely caught me off guard! It seems that the attempt to reboot Legend of Galactic Heroes might be real after all. There is no release date so far but Kotobukiya is announcing some figure for LOGH Characters in ARTFX J Lineup. So far Only Yang Wenli got the Prototype shown but Reinhard and Kircheis is going to get one as well. Up until now Legend of Galactic Heroes still remains the best anime when it comes to Politics and Philosophy as well as an effective commentary upon present society. Kircheis and Yang Wenli will be instant grab buy for me because i will not spare money for this Masterpiece and going to keep on tab for these figurines. Studio IG wil be in charge for the reboot and since they look genuinely serious enough, i will give the series a watch from get go. Depending on how successful the series is, i think we are getting model kits for LoGH Flagship as well.
