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.

Update 5-2-2012

2 05 2012

May will be one of the best months. I’m hoping to crank out Video Reviews more than 2 twice a week. So stay tuned as I cover new action figures and old ones in my collection.

Was able to track down Catwoman (Arkham City)  from the Batman Legacy 2-pack by Mattel. Bought it loose off eBay cause really didn’t want the other Batman (Arkham Asylum) with different paint apps.

And just for fun…I got a cool Birthday Gift: HG 1/144 G-Bouncer from the Gundam Age Anime.
