MG MBF-P03R Blue Frame Astray Second Revise Part I : Feet

This was one of the model kit that I wish it would get a Master Grade treatment. The 1/100 NG Blue Frame Second L was released back in 2004 and after 5 years of waiting, Bandai finally granted my wish. I have helped my friend build the limited edition Red Frame Second L so that was one of my first experience in building gundam. Since then, this model was one of my top list to buy.

But after getting it, I have no idea why I seem to lost the mood in building gundam, maybe because of my final exam a few weeks ago. So finally this morning I motivated myself to build this guy and I only manage to build his feet -_-|||

So, I will review the feet with the photos that I have taken.


The "high heels" ... Got more detail than the NG version.

The back view, the Armor Schneider is now obvious because of the silver paint.

Painted silver for some of the details.

Armor Schneider extended

The only articulation for the foot. No more slipper action i guess.

More to come. Might consider buying the no grade one to make the comparison.

Peace out!

75th post ... > 1k views Special

This is a special post to commemorate the 75th post of my blog and above 1ooo views from you guys ... THANK YOU ...

As you guys may have know, I am really in Gunplas. With the current project which is the MG Exia stuck halfway, I can't seem to make a review for that yet. For that, I am sorry.

So for this post, I am gonna post something about my gaming side. One of the most epic game that I have played is Super Metroid for the SNES. Undeniably it is one of the most epic game that I have played in my life. The storyline is immense that pulls the player in. With multiple power up in your disposal, definitely it can be considered as one of the best game of all time.

One of the best game title ever

As a retro gamer, it tends to be hard for me to accept new games in my favorite games to play. But this specific game has shown to me that there are good game nowadays as well. And the game that I am going to talk today is Crysis by Crytek. There is only one word that can describe this game: UBER.

Shooting aliens is COOL

The gameplay can be considered revolutionizing in my opinion as the nanosuit mode change does make into strategy. Open ended level allows you to tackle the mission from different angle. The plot change in the middle of the game can be considered as one of the best twist in a game plot ever.

Seriously I CAN'T WAIT FOR CRYSIS 2

SEXY BACK

PS: Sorry Fadzli for the things I said earlier about Crysis

Rock IS Dead. Period.


Words from Marilyn Manson is definitely true. What kind of rubbish is currently being played on radios these days?

Singles that being played on the mainstream radios are songs that lyrics can be made up when the artist is crapping in the toilet. Seriously, how can a song that repeatedly singing about numbers in two languages can be on the charts? And younger generations are in to it?!

I know that there shitty rock bands and song out there that only screams about devil worshiping and murdering religious icons. And there are mainstream bands that only wants to make money by making songs so catchy or so emo that fan girls bow to their feet.

But nothing, seriously nothing come close to the beauty and sophistication of rock music. You just have to find the right stuffs. One of the method is to find bands that are "fresh". They are new in the industry and they tend to experiment with their music as they are not making music for the money.

And then there are the veteran group where they are not interested in money but getting their message to their fans. Whatever it is rock music ROCKS my life.

PS: T-Pain you freaking auto-tune and Linkin Park; I USED to love you guys. Go suck some balls.

Project Exia x 00 Part 1

Since my project of making a red 00 was a rubbish bin and my kid bro destroyed the Exia. Also waiting for the water slide decal for the MG Exia, I guess this is a good time to do something about those two kit. And what more better than combining those two kits to make it as one 0_0...
Some photos for the progress so far ...


Took the V fin of the 00 and attach it to the Exia

The shoulder and lower arm of Exia

The rubber cord is my weirdest idea ^^

More to come when I have the time

HGUC RX-121-1 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel Custom] - Part 4 (Finale)

This is definitely the last and finale of the review for the HGUC Hazel Custom. For this part, I will cover the backpack, the booster shield and the poses that you can pull of from this bad boy.

The backpack for this guy is not as elaborate as most of the backpack of other main character gundam from the series (especially compared to those of Strike Freedom and Gundam Wing). Heck, it only holds on beam saber. It has a cool sliding mechanism so that you can pull the backpack back so that you can attach the booster shield to the back.


Without the backpack; it looks kinda awkward as the shoulder bulges to the back.

The core of the backpack


Primary part of the backpack completed
The yellow parts are molded individually which is cool

Slide the primary to the main part that connects the backpack to the gundam

Attaching the backpack to this guy adds a little depth to him


Now moving on to the booster shield. Now, this shield can be mounted on the arm of the gundam to replace the normal shield. Even on the construction manual shows the Hazel custom with the booster sheild. But since i have the philosophy of only build what that can be attached on the Gundam itself and I build the regular shield; so where do i put the booster sheild you ask? on the backpack of course. The design of the Hazel custom is similar to the advanced Hazel and since it is; the accessories of both kits are interchangable and I've seen on the net that you are able to attach 3 booster shields on the Hazel Custom 0_0.

Very simple build for the booster shield. Again, all the small yellow parts are molded individually


Forgotten to snap a photo before attaching the booster shield

Now we move on to the poses we can pull of with this guy. Let the photos do the talking

Front view of the completed guy

Rear view

Tried the Strike Signature pose but the leg wouldn't bend -_-

OMG a Zeong head!

Where did he go?

A simple pose

The clear sticker markings really add the detail to this kit

This guys new place in the family

Final verdict:
+ Points :
  • The only Hazel Custom kit produced by Bandai
  • Comes with clear sticker
  • A lot of detail for a HG kit
- Points :
  • Leg articulation is rubbish
  • Some parts are loose and will fall off (especially the hand)
  • The only Hazel Custom kit
Total score : 6.5 out of 10
