Timelapse of the Construction of the Odaiba Gundam

Sorry I’ve been away for a bit, but I’m back and so is the 1/1 scale Odaiba RX-78 Gundam! This timelapse video of the construction is absolutely beautiful.

The one thing that’s missing from the first time they built it is the beam saber. I wonder why they left it out of the reconstruction. How is it going to defend Odaiba from a colony drop?

1/1 Scale Gundam Gets a New Home

Sadly, it’s not going to be built in my backyard. I actually have a backyard now which could use a 1/1 scale Gundam. No, the new home for the 1/1 scale RX-78-2 will be Odaiba in Tokyo. Man, it sure gets around. I’m kind of curious why they haven’t built Char’s Zaku yet to sort of chase it around. I mean, it would come together three times as fast!

7ft Tall Gundam Mark II Papercraft Destroys All Pants

I am sad to say, but Taras Lesko is a bigger Gundam fan that I am. With 720 sheets of paper, he crafted this 7ft tall RX-178 Gundam Mark II. Fortunately, he had the foresight to record the process and put together this amazing timelapse movie of the construction. There are a ton more photos and more videos over at Visual Spicer. If I wasn’t already married, I would seriously propose to the papercraft.

Of course, the next step has to be a full 1/1 scale papercraft of at least a Gundam head.

Thanks to Angry Zen Minions Nathan Yuen and Jana Hoffmann for sending this my way.

Gundam Gives Great Head

Gundam Guy has posted some photos from the Miyazawa Model Exhibtion 2011. I’ve got an office now with a proper desk that needs some geekiness and I think the Gundam Head Collection would look right nice next to my phone. I think they’ve done head collections in the past, but this is the first time I’ve seen a Zaku in the lineup. There’s another photo that shows off some of the Gundam AGE heads. Haven’t had a chance to check out the series yet, but I have to say that I kind of like the look of the secondary suits. I’m a UC fanatic at heart, but I can live with the new suits.

No word on when they’ll be released, but I’ll be keeping an eye out for that Zaku.

SD Gundam G Generation Coming to the Nintendo 3DS

Dropping this December is another Gundam game worth keeping an eye out for, SD Gundam G Generation 3D! Unfortunately, unlike previous gameboys the 3DS is region locked so we won’t be able to enjoy SD battles like the SD Unicorn vs SD Sinanju unless you mode your system. The Unicorn suits are included which makes me all kinds of crunchy in the pants. Also looks like the Gundam AGE and its various incarnations will be playable which could be a lot of fun. And they included the cute Bearguy from Beginning G! Check out the website to see screen shots and more suits in the lineup.

Japan’s Ministry of Defense Creates Real Life HARO!!!

Put a green shell on this bot, give it some glowy eyes, and a robotic voice that says “genki, Amuro, genki” and you’ve got yourself a real life Haro! I’m buying one. I don’t care if it’s for military use or spying or defense or any of that bullshit. I need more Haro in my life. I guarantee that’s what the engineers were thinking as well, “You know what Sasuke-kun, we need more Haro in our lives.” “Quite right, Yuki-chan. Let’s build us a spherical robot!”

Calling Beta Testers for SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online!

More awesome Gundam gaming news! SD Gundam Capsule Fighter is getting a North America release. They’re calling for beta testers at the site! The closed beta begins next week. It looks like one of those browser type games which I’ve never really played. Looks like it could be awesome. I’ve signed up for the beta so hopefully I’ll be able to report in with some opinions and such. I hope the thing is OSX compatible. There’s a collecting aspect to the game where you can collect all the mobile suits from the various TV shows. All I need is the Devil Gundam and all of Char’s suits and I’m set.
