I haven’t given up on this section but with the way things are going in my life, I just haven’t had the time work on all the projects I want to. This means that Gunpla has had to take a back seat to everything else that is going on. I told myself I would take the time to build at least one model over my holiday break and luckily I made good on my commitment. This is the 1/144 Future Pink Petit Beargguy. I made this little guy for my wife for Christmas. She hasn’t seen Gundam Build Fighters or its sequel Build Fighters Try but she is a big fan of cute things and loves the color pink. This in mind I decided to build her one of the Beargguy from the series which have become quite popular even among non-Gundam fans.
The make of this little guy was pretty easy. Snip him out, and minimal sanding to get the pieces right. I’m still not very happy with how my sanding is turning out though and will have to make it a priority to work on that aspect of the build as I move forward. I made sure to add a few touches to it to make the model a bit more special. To that end I made sure to paint the eyes and nose instead of using the stickers and paint the bow red. After those were dry, a simple bit of clear coat on him and the model was built. He was a cute little guy and since I made it as a gift I’m not going to add a grade to him. I’m relatively pleased with the way he turned out though. I just wish I had the time to work more on my model building. Priorities, the joy of being an adult.
Hmm. That title sounds like some kid of vitamin supplement. Anyways a lot of articles have surfaced for once again its time for COLASSAL NEWS.
First up, the cult film and childhood favorite of many, the Iron Giant will be returning to theaters this fall. Fathom events will be having special screenings of the film and this release will apparently include new scenes. I still have to review this movie for the blog but let’s be honest. This one is an automatic A.
Next up is information on the new Mobile Suit Gundam series has been released. The new show will be called Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and is set to debut in October 4th of this year. There is also talks of streaming it here in America but I hope they figure out a better way then the YouTube channel of GundamInfo which won’t let me watch the English Subs of Reconquista in G here in the states.
Also, if anyone was wondering about where the Gundam Review are on this site and how I can keep calling myself a Mecha fan without ever touching the Franchise I have good news. I am working on making “Gundam Month” where I will have an entry everyday covering a series or movie in the Franchise. I’m still working on getting all those review together so give me a bit. They are coming I promise.
News has also surfaced of a new Transformers cartoon that will be directed at adults. Gaming and media website Machinima will be helping to create the show which will air on their website. The cartoon is said to be based on the IDW comic series, which has helped to produce some of the best Transformer story lines ever. Trust me if your a Transformers fan and not reading those comics then you are missing out.
Finally in a historical first Crunchyroll will be simultaneously broadcasting a Tokusatsu show as its running in Japan. The show is the latest entry into the Ultraman Franchise, called Ultraman X. Check out the Facebook for the usual small comments about the episodes as they come out.
That`s all for now. Untiil next time, GO BIG OR GO HOME! Still working on my sign out.
