This is from the 2010 Singapore Toy, Games, and Comic Convention and it’s fucking AMAZING! I absolutely love the lights. Besides the long ass neck, it seems to be fairly proportional to the actual mobile suit.
Of course, nothing beats this sexy ass Gundam cosplay:
I once believed that I would have to wait until I was about dead until science came up with a proper HARO robot companion to keep me company in my waning years. Nope. Sony made this shit in 2008! Now granted, it’s not a full on HARO that floats around and asks you if you’re “genki,” but I’m sure if you filled a Rolly with enough sound clips of HARO from his various animated incarnations, it’d be just as good.
Here’s a bunch of Rollys dancing to “Thriller.”
They are a bit pricey. I found one on Amazon for about $230. For that price, I kinda would want a real HARO-shaped HARO. I kind of feel that Sony or Bandai or both missed the boat here. Clearly, Sony can make a Rolly that’s shaped like HARO. I have no idea how well the Rolly did back in 2008, but if it was a HARO Rolly, that shit would fly off the shelves! Hell, I may get one anyway and just paint it green.
Rolly’s existence in the world gives me great hope that a real life HARO isn’t too far off. Everyone needs a little green robot ball to gleefully shout encouraging words now and then.
If you skip to 3:00, you can see Beam Churros being served at the Gundam Cafe!
Gundam Front Tokyo open tomorrow and from this short video tour, you can tell that it’s a Gundam fan’s wet dream come true. Along with the Gundam Cafe and exclusive Gundam merch, there’s also Strict G, a Gundam apparel shop with a number of classy items for the fashion forward fan.
Here’s some video footage of what they project behind the Odaiba Gundam. You can see a shit ton of Haros flitting about for something called the “Haro Project.” I’m pretty much a sucker for Haro anything.
The RX-178 Mark II is getting the Real Grade treatment in Titan and A.E.U.G. colors. I love the Real Grade series. It really looks like they just shrunk the Perfect Grade models to 1/144 scale. Plenty of decals, plenty of accessories. Looks like a lot of fun.
Kind of curious to see what else will be in the Real Grade lineup. My favorite suit is the Gundam Sentinel so that would be a guarantee buy from me, but what other suits would you like to see get the Real Grade treatment?
You know, the more I see of the Gundam AGE, the more I like it. Here’s a two part video review of the Master Grade kit. Part one is an unboxing, part two reviews the assembled kit.
Part two is pretty dangerous. He goes over every part in detail which really just makes me want to buy ALL THE GUNPLA and build them all day. At one point in time, I imagined a fantasy world in which I could make a living simply by building Gunpla for people. As you can see, this dream job never really happened, but it would have been fucking sweet!
AZM Ally Amanda sent along this very flowery Gundam. The only thing that would have made this the absolute best thing in the entire universe is if it was done up as the GF13-009NF Gundam Rose from G Fighter Gundam. Still, it is quite awesome and needs to be in every garden in the Universal Century.
