    Update: after building FM Lupus Rex and NG Virtue and ordering Sazabi/Nightingale funnel effects kit, that double GN IV Full Sabre kit, and NG 1/100 Kyrios, I'm now at 46 kits purchased, 31 built, 11 in boxes, and 4 yet to be delivered. I'm holding off on making Dark Matter so I can make the rest of Celestial Being's S1 suits before touching an Exia. Build log will be in the following order:

    NG 1/100 Gundam Kyrios
    GN4 Double GN Sword IV Full Saber
    MG Dark Matter Gundam Exia
    MG Gundam Exia Avalanche
    Flame Toys Furai Megatron IDW
    Flame Toys Furai Drift
    MG Double Fin Funnel ver Ka
    BTF Double Fin Funnel (Psychoframe)
    MG Nu Gundam ver ka
    MG Sazabi ver Ka
    GKH Sazabi Funnel Effects
    MG Sinanju Stein ver Ka
    MG Hi-Nu Gundam ver ka
    Re/100 Nightingale
    MG Gundam Base Limited Gundam Unicorn Plan B: Plan Perfectibility

    assuming my Furais arrive in that time.

    I miss going to Greenhills for hunting down kits but these days I get my kits online thru Shopee. Some of the hobby shops that I go to in GH/FB are there so it's pretty convenient specially now that traffic is really bad in Manila.

    Well... In order for me to give an accurate answer to the question where I buy.... Define "local". Do only brick and mortar stores apply or do webstores as well? Because my go-to guy has a webstore but no brick and mortar style shop... He just messages me once a month to ask if there's something I want/need gunpla wise and a few weeks later I get messaged for payment. It's how I get my P-Bandai stuff really....

    So, how exactly is the Guard unit different? It comes with the tiny beam gun you could easily get from a HGUC GM?

    It comes with two slightly different beam spray guns.

    Pretty much. At least it has two of the new guns. That's a plus there!

    Bandai's logic:



    I wouldn't be surprised if it also comes with a new shield bracket but I also wouldn't be shocked if it doesn't.

    One week later and my SD Dynames is complete! Some of the panel lines on painted areas is a bit rough but it looks fine from afar. Haha.

    I very much doubt it, and even so more parts added to the shield means more weight on whichever arm has to hold it up, so really there is no winning with that thing.

    My HLJ package of 30mm accessories and Sandrock came today. Only built the white Alto and gave the Dark Grey Portanova the navy commander armour but damn, it looks amazing.

    I'm finally getting the colour/armour combos that really work and it's awesome.

    So far I have the first six plus Barbatos done. I should post pics.

    The only other one I have is the 00 but I also asked my friend to help get me the Destiny that just released since they are in Japan. I found out a local hobby shop has them for about MSRP so now I am also considering picking up the Astray ones too.

    It has the two guns, plus a new backpack, chest and other details. This is 2300 yen vs the 1800 of the original.

    Had an idea to finally fix and finish the Hi-Resolution Zero, but I'm flushing the bad mixes of paint I made for it and reclaiming some jars..

    The highlight areas are the different parts.

    Not gonna lie. After the initial outrage, I will probably pick up this PB.
    After all, it fixes all my issue with the regular release... duh
    An extra set of open palms are nice too but guess what, it doesn't come with left trigger hand so it can't duel wield.
    I personally don't care that much but come on, Bandai.

    Edit:

    Death Army is out in Japan. Seems to be the best looking low price grunt kit out there.

    Can't wait for the builder variant.

    Same, I've never built the PG Strike but everything that makes the Perfect Strike unique would be worth it for the full package than getting the original kit and the Expansion set later.
    -
    Continuing what I was alluding to before, my impulse to work on the HiRM Wing EW made me rethink my strategy for the HiRM Zero. Eventually one model will inspire the details on the other.

    This also includes cutting down on the excessive painting ideas, down to two colors from what I originally had thought of before. Moreover I'm working with a better recipe than I had cobbled together for this the first time I cracked open the box.
