AZM Ally Kyle Wright sent along photos of the Gundam Topiary project which is growing around the corner from the 1/1 scale RX-78. Gives new meaning to Rose Gundam, amiright? AHAHAhah–oh. Well, I think it’s pretty and more interesting to look at than an all-green Zaku topiary.
The MSA-0011 Ex-S Gundam is my very favorite mobile suit. The Ex-S stands for Extraordinary Superior, but I like to think of it as Excessive! I mean, the model kit can’t even stand on its own without a stand. So I always mess my pants when I see cool build photos of an Ex-S like this one:
Nice clean lines, highly detailed paint, sexy LED action. Looks like a great kit. And then I scroll down and see this:
You feel that? That’s all of your blood rushing to your genitals. Holy fuck sticks is this thing HUGE! I mean, the gun is even people-sized:
I had to take my time looking at all the glorious photos posted over at Gunjap because I kept fainting from the blood rush.
So. Fucking. Epic.
I want to fucking marry it! I mean, it’s big enough that a kid could take the bits of armor and wear it for a Halloween costume!
You may have heard of Branson before. He did a Gundam Wing rap a while ago which I probably didn’t post because I’m not a big Wing fan. But he’s got a lot of other fun songs like this tribute to Gurren Lagann.
Anime based nerdcore is YES!
I don’t know where the hell I’ve been, but apparently, there have been nine Real Grade releases. Bandai’s just announced number ten and it’s awesome, the MSZ-006 ZETA GUNDAM! Most of this trailer is CG, but I think there’s a really brief glimpse of the real thing. Like the rest of the RG series, it looks fantastic, like they just shrunk a Master Grade. Can’t wait to see more photos of the actual kit which drops this November.
THANK YOU INTERNET!
Who knew Hyaku-Shiki had such awesome moves! And of course, Char’s Zaku II and RX-78 make the perfect couple.

I missed out on most of the Olympic coverage because we don’t get cable and our antennae hates NBC so I totally missed Spain’s possibly unintentional tribute to Char Aznable. Though their warmup jackets were meant to make them train three times as fast, they failed to beat the U.S. team which I guess would make us the Feddies or Titans or something. God, I hope we’re not the Titans. Parent killing freaks.
On a completely not related note, I wanted to get married wearing Char’s Counterattack uniform. To me, it combines formal with badass in a way that just makes the ladies swoon three times as fast. Sadly, I wasn’t able to track one down in time.
