  1. Nice show Ryan and Syd! A time ago I asked to you what we could do to get a kit being made into HG line by Bandai, and you say that we cannot do anything to help that, but now the kit a wanted the Gerbera Tretra is getting hguc treatment and the Geara Doga is goning to be MG. Do you think that the treatment of those models are because the aniversary of the Gundam 0083 and Char counterattack? Please could you tell us when are the dates of aniversary of the gundam series? Thanks a lot!

  2. hi syd …. i wanna ask you about girls’ generation or 少女時代. who do you like from 少女時代 thx

  3. I wonder why Bandai does not follow the line with the RGs. Every RG so far had a somewhat counterpart of their respective series. Both Zakus – RX-78, MKII Titans – AUEG Ver/Zeta Gundam, Strike – Strike Rouge, Freedom – Justice. If you follow that, the next in line should be the Force Impulse to complete it. The Destiny seems a bit out of place. Nevertheless it is a great kit. The way of Bandai is inconprehensible…

    Sweet show as always, well done. Quick comment about the hands, Bandai released the Builders Parts: Hand #02 (Zeon) that will probably suit the Sinanju (plus you guys have them in stock).

  5. Couple of tips which might help the drybrushing:

    * Try to only dip the bristles in the paint – if you get paint in the ferrule it’s really hard on the brush – you can get bristles falling out, and it won’t last as long as a well cared-for brush.

    * When you’ve removed the paint on the paper, test on the palm of your hand – if you’ve got it dry enough you should only see paint deposited on the raised lines of your skin.

    * As with all weathering, stop before you think you’ve done enough 🙂

  6. hi sid & ryan …
    I’ve been watching your show for quite sometime now & it’s really informative fro gunpla builders … just want to ask SID since he’s the gunpla zen master 🙂 …since bandai has done the MG wing series are they considering to include the other model suit in the series ? to name a few … Leo … Aries … Mercurius … Virgo … etc.
    It would be great if they could make a couple of those suits … 🙂

  7. Hey sys and Ryan amazing show.
    I can never get enough gunpla tv.
    I just recently finished my first sinanju ova MG. and it looks great with the flat coat I used
    But I tried out using the builders parts wich I’ve never tried before.
    My only thing is I noticed that they were made to be glued to the kit.
    And I was only able to use the aftermarket thrusters on the spiked panel under the shoulders so I guess I wanted to ask how would you go on gluing those parts on if the price has a ball joint molded on? And also sense I did build the ova would the Sinanju stein still be worth the build? Thanx guys keep it up
    ¡¡¡¡¡GO RG Gundam GP01!!!!!!

  8. @ Casu
    Dear sir,
    Considering you’ve built an OVA version of the Great Red, I’d recommend building the other one too. Sure the build is more or less the same, with some part differences but if you’re a true Gunpla junky and you dig the story line of the whole Gundam universe you’d want the Stein that much more, just to complete the Sinanju set. If, however, you’re asking for one reason many do and that’s purely for a fact that you’re a nice design lover and you don’t care for lore and stuff like such I’d then recommend you wait for Geara Doga and build that one instead. It should be released some time in the summer, july probably. As for the question about technicalities, I’d much rather leave that matter to Syd and Ryan, for a regular gunplar there’s just too much different things one can do with your particular problem. Hope that helped to some extent.
    Best regards

  9. @woodfish thanks man I appreciate the feedback and yes I’m a gunpla lover been building gunpla for a couple of years now so that all I needed to hear thanx. I wanted the stein anyway just wanted to hear if there were any reason I should excuse the stein. And for my second question i figured it was pritty vage with many possibilities just wanted to kno of maybe syd and Ryan could give me some advice of some stuff they’re have tried if the have have tried. But thank you again man

  10. Hi Ryan and Syd! Great Show…

    How big/tall is the 1/144 Muv Luv kit/s compare to a 1/100 MG Gundam kit/s?
    Im really curious about it and build one for change.

    And one more question about the Vallejo Matte Varnish and Gloss Varnish, do you know how to use them and do they only work on a air brush?

    Thanks and Keep up the great show

  11. Hi Gunpla T.V. crew love your show keep up the good work. I am a fan of the gundam anime and I got into gunpla building because of this show. I am going to order my first master grade kits through hlj.com and i was wandering about availability of certain kits. For example i wanted to order a MG Nu gundam ver. KA and the Sinanju Stein, however the Stein is back ordered. Do you guys know when the next shipment will be in, or do you guys only know when it gets there.

      Thanks for your comment! Bandai does release a schedule about their restocks and when we get that information we change the status of the respective items on our site to indicate the restock date. If it says backordered then we are just waiting to hear from Bandai on when they will be sending out their next shipment. Often the restocks for bigger kits happen near the end of each month.

    Hi,
    the 1/144 Muv Luv kits are around 13 cm high and the Non scale are around 19 cm. So its the same as Bandai’s 1/144 HG and 1/100 MG Gundam kits.

  13. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
