Ending the Week

14 09 2012

Ending the week with some cool mail orders arriving today.

First up is my next Gundam model kit – Gundam AGE HG 1/144 Fx that I ordered for hobbywave.com. I’ve been in the habit of always tweaking the colors around to make it more personal/originally. I’ll need to load some product photos into Photoshop and experiment with the re-color paint pallet I wanna go with. I usually assemble while watching baseball…Go SF Giants!

Along with my Gundam kit was a Pink Gundam Marker I wanted to try out on my Transformers Prime Deluxe Class Arcee. She’s known for sporting small sections of pink on her body when you watch the show, unfortunately they aren’t found on the toy. So I tried out the marker on the toy only to discover the marker really has runny paint and is hard to control. It also goes on too thick. It’s almost better to put on a little paint and use a small brush to spread the paint around so you don’t accidentally bleed into areas you don’t want to be in. The pic below shows how it turned out. I’ll have to extract it with paint thinner and redo it.

Stopped by Target and snagged another Darth Maul Returns Star Wars Battle Pack so I could have loose versions to pose on my desk. Below is the pic I took so you could see how he compares to the vintage collection Darth Maul.

Lastly, I shot video intros for 2 upcoming reviews I hope to have done by Sunday. S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Den-O Sword Form and Hasbro Walmart Amazing Spider-Man 6″ action figure.





Preview: Mattel Young Justice 6″ Batman Action Figure

2 04 2012

Hey folks,

A buddy of mine got a hold of the Young Justice 6″ Batman Action Figure (out of package, no accessories) and was awesome enough to get me one. To help accent some of the details, I took a .005 black ink pen to add panel lining to his mouth and ab area. Here are a few preview pictures taken with my iPad2. Video review will be coming for this awesome figure.
