The Master has arrived! Gundam Exia!

I went to pick up the Master Grade Exia Ignition mode at Imageanime's physical store on Monday. I was one of the coveted few to get it for the premium price of $75.00! As of this writing the gundam kit is 80.00, but the regular price is $90.00.

I had some doubts as to which one I wanted to buy. Regular Gundam or Ignition Gundam? What's the difference? As far as I could tell and what a picture on the internet told me, the Ignition has the reflective silver coating on the GN Blades.

I didn't really care about the Gundam Exia Repair parts. It would be cool to have them, but I doubt I will display the gundam exia repair and the regular gundam Exia. If I did I would give the shiny GN blades and sword to the regular looking gundam Exia and the grey would go to the Gundam Exia Repair.

So I went down to Chinatown first to see if they had it. But they did not. I have to admit one of the shopkeepers wasn't really thrilled to make the sale, he said the would get the Gundam Exia that…

Mobile Suit Gundam 00:Sumeragi Lee Noriega

Sumeragi is the female captain of the Ptolemaios and Celestial Being's tactical forecaster. In Mobile Suit Gundam 00, the character designs of most of the females were kind of curvy. I think Gundam 00 had some of the better character designs of gundam.

I have been thinking of drawing Gundam 00 in more real world representations. I would imagine the characters nationalities according to the locations where they come from. But if you think about Sumeragi Lee Noriega's real name Leesa Kujo, which sounds like Lisa Kudrow. Then They might have been going for a ditsy blonde.

I have also been contemplating buying the Gundam 00 1/400 scale Ptolemaios from some ebay sellers,and a Sumeragi Lee Noriega Gashapon figure either in her sexy gundam 00 season 1 sexy outfit, or in a bikini.

Busty and Cute. This old picture of Katie Price aka Jordan a british model, captures Sumeragi perfectly. From the hairstyle to the bust size. She doesn't look like this anymore and the British (which is par…

Susanowo: 1/144 HG Gundam 00 Kit Supplemental Review

First off it's pronounced Susano and it's the Shinto God of the sea and storms. This is the last Mobile Suit piloted by Mr. Bushido aka Graham Aker and is in the traditional Overflag colors of white and black. The First mobile suit he used was the custom Ahead. But that didn't last very long.

Then Mr. Katagiri built him the Marusao which was modeled after the Union of Free Energy and Nations Flag.

As you can already see this unit retained the Ahead's beam blades and The color scheme. When Mr. Bushido confronts Setsuna F. Seiei at the Africa Tower the unit sustains heavy damage thanks to the timely arrival of The Celestial Being units.

So then third times the charm right? Well no. I can see no diference between the Marusao and the Susanowo's performance. The Susanowo has the Tri Enforcer,the Beam Chakram and the new sword which is not beam based.

Then the suit got owned by the Gundam 00 Raiser. Now onto the review...

This is a look at the head of the MS without the front…

Dreams of Trans-Am Gundams

While I was I home trying to sleep I realized that I am so obsessed with Trans-Am Gundams, especially the Gundam 00 Raiser with the chewy GN-Sword III (it has this red popsicle like plastic piece that goes over the blade).

The Gundam 00 Raiser designer colors looks awesome. But it's colors are too light for my taste. It would make an awesome office display. And it has some Celestial Being decals to boot.

Then there is the 00 Gundam and the 0 raiser but they don't come together. I can find the 00 Gundam in a store in Flushing for US$16.99. But Imageanime has the 0 Raiser for US$18.00 which seems to expensive. If I can get an Enact Morelia or Agrissa type for US$15.00. then I should get a 0 Raiser for US$15.00 also, right?

I already purchased the Trans-Am Gundam Virtue and I plan on getting the Trans-Am Gundam Kyrios (US$20.00) and the Trans-Am Gundam Dynames (US$17.00) in Chinatown.

And I was considering getting the 1/100 Trans-Am Gundam Exia! The original model costs about US$60.0…

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 MG Gundam Exia. Ignition!

Welcome to my first post. This is a new blog that I have crated with the express purpose to be my output with Mobile Suit Gundam. Specificly Gundam 00. The second season of gundam 00 should be airing on the Sci-Fi Channel (now known as SyFy). The Gundam 00 movie should be out next year and we should be seeing some Gundam Unicorn anime soon.

I have to admit that I am coming back to Gundam since I left it in 2004. It's rare for me to return to properties that have died off. Even though I did return to Marvel Comics for a while.

But enough of that. This is gonna be all gundam, all the time. For as long as I can keep it up.

The master grade Gundam Exia Ignition mode is one of the best looking model kits I have seen in a long time. I hope that even though I don't pre-order this gundam, I will be able to find it in my local hobby store.

Because that's one of the great things about gundam, no kit is too old that you can't find it.

Daryll Dodge out!
