Hey.  Sorry its been a while, I just haven't been able to do any drawing lately.

This journal is mostly about something important for me... I'm considering selling most of my old Gundam MSiA!! and SD collection.



As you can see, I have a LOT- well over 60 individual figures, fighters, and vehicles (including a Gallop.)  The vast majority of these figures are in excellent condition.  A few of the older ones have some paint rubbed off in places, and about 4-5 are in pretty rough shape.  Still, most have all their accessories, and I even have a box with leftover beam saber beams and misc accessories just in case.

I'm currently trying to figure out how much I should sell all of it for.  I'd like to get at least 250 from it, but after checking EBay, most individual figures in the same/worse shape sell for 15-30... bumping up the theoretical value to nearly 1000 dollars. 

If any of you guys are interested, let me know.  I'll also be happy to explain the condition of any of the figures shown.

New stuff 04132015 by Blayaden
New stuff 04132015
I figured its been a while since I've done one of these, so here are most of the new things I've gotten since the last picture.

I got the GM Powered Cardigan on its release, and I'm pretty happy with it overall.  Its based on the GM Powered (obviously) and uses the same mold- and has all of the original parts to recreate the GM Powered.  The biggest problem with the Cardigan is its tremendously back heavy when its weapons and shields are "in storage."  This can easily be fixed by moving the shields in front of the MS, but I rather like the standard mode.

Much like the GM Cardigan, I got the Lightning Gundam at launch, and got the BWS as soon as I could.  Its an excellent sculpt, and I like it a lot.  With its original backpack, its only slightly back heavy, but with the Full Bernian pack on its pretty badly back heavy.  I'm currently using a small stand to keep it standing proper.

The Hizack EFF type is an older model, but its pretty good for what it is.  My only complaint is that its only accessories are the machine gun and the shield... no heat hawk, beam saber, or missile pods.  Ah, well.

The V-Dash is pretty much everything I expected, and makes an awesome kit even more awesome.  Like with the original 90's release, it comes with the Hexa head... and I love me some Victory Hexa! :)

Android 18 from Dragon Ball Z is a great figure, and really compliments the figuarts Krilln really well- giving Krillin an extra head, hand, and "detonator."  I rather like the new head, but its not as shallow as Krillin's normal heads, so it gives him some extra height.  I feel like he's too tall with it on, but I just LOVE his expression.

Zero (MMZ ver) is a pretty shweet figure as well, coming with his Saber, buster, rod, and shield- and appropriate hands for each.  His hair is pretty poseable, but it tends to fall out at the base of the head.  I ended up gluing mine.  I like the fact that his saber and rod are clear, but I wish they were either a tad more opaque or had some "action" parts.

Mario is cheaper than most figuarts- but they make up for it with all the accessory packs that they sell.  I like him a lot- my only real complaing being his shoulders and only one face available to him.  I really wished they included a more "neutral" face like they did with Luigi.

Back to Gunpla- the Gundam NT1 "Alex" is one of my favorite Gundams- being from a series full of awesome mechanical designs.  Its an older kit, but I think it holds up pretty well for today's standards.  The biggest problem really is its beam rifle- like the GM Cold Climate, it can't hold it properly.  I modified the trigger hand so that it bends at an angle, and it mostly fixed the problem.  Another oddity is that it comes with two beam saber handles and a plain white beam saber.  However the handles have holes in them for standard clear beam sabers, which makes me question the inclusion of the white beam saber all together.  Regardless, I think this kit is STILL better than the standard G-Self, and is again cheaper even with the Chohabam armor included.

Thats all for now, but I'll try to upload my models individually more often!  Thanks for looking!  Feel free to ask me any questions about any of these figures!

The site has Chapters 17 through 28. You have to go to the next page for more. The same site also has the Federation Hooligans manga

I got around to watching Gundam AGE Memeroy of Eden. I have to say that the final fight between Asemu and Zehart was much better than the original show. The Dark Hound totally owned the Gundam Legolis. And Zehart was fighting without his x-rounder abilities completely unrestricted. The only thing I though was kinda disappointing was that they didn't play Asemu's trademark music from the show
