Not-so-recent stuff (page 4)

PT-05 Dontress (Wave)

In: Everything Else > Other Limited Editions
Posted: 2008-12-16

This one’s mostly MIB—my OJR version is borrowing a couple pieces right now. Priorities, you know. They’re identical, except for the clear parts (orange here) and caps (grey here).

Yuji Kaida #03 Iron Kong Yeti

This poor guy’s been in contruction limbo for years. When I first got it (back in 2003), I used the white armor for a plastic swap but didn’t touch the other parts, so it’s never been built stock until very recently. Unfortunately I also gave the armor a terrible panel lining job, which has taken […]

When this one came out, it was good news for everyone who had missed out on CPs 22 and 23. I originally only got it for its swapping potential, but recently a lack of new kits drove me to revert this one to its stock configuration. If you like colors, this one has them. All […]

2005: Blade Hawk (Full Metal Crash)

In: Everything Else > Other Limited Editions
Posted: 2008-12-08

This is an odd bird. For its alternate mode it splits into a weapon (giant shuriken!) and armor for Murasame Liger. Since I don’t have a Murasame, I’m trying to think of customizing ideas…

GRZ-004 Dark Nessios

A big part of the Rebirth line seems to be re-tooling and updating old designs. This one takes Brachios and makes it into a plesiosaur, which in turn makes me very happy. In the ancient times (2001), a hobby magazine showed a Brachios-to-Plesio kitbash (one, two), so I’ve been hoping for an official bash for […]

I had an OJR, got tired of it (and needed money), sold it, regretted it, then got this bargain priced reissue. The original had magenta caps and blue clear bits. Earlier this week I finally summoned the energy required to do the panel lining and detailing that was so badly needed. Before, the undercarriage was […]

Well, I had to build it!

MIB for now.

RZ-052 Gunbluster

In: 2nd Worldwide Release > Helic Republic
Posted: 2008-12-02

MIB for now. The OJR version has chrome guns and a cooler color scheme, but also costs ten times as much, so I’ll stick with this one. Bummer that neither version had clear eyes.

RZ-067 Arosaurer

MIB for now. For some reason, this one’s box art (like the box art for Gorhecks) shows an opaque canopy. This filled my heart with fear when they came out, but rest assured the canopy inside the box is clear.

MIB for now. A nice reissue of one of the rarest OJRs.

MIB until such time as I need a hearty laugh.

MIB for now. I built one a long time ago, but ended up breaking one of the legs trying to take it out of the socket (this is very easy to do), so I’m not in much of a hurry to build this one.

Giant Zrk

First Posted: 2008-11-27

Behold, the king of the whiteheads! This poor guy has seen better days. I’m missing half the little guns, and the neck connector has been replaced (that part is too fragile for what it needs to do). Giant Zrk (Bigasauru in the OJR) was the first large Zoid, and the basis for later large kits […]

Vol. 10 Lidier

First Posted: 2008-11-20

This funny looking lion type used to be rarer than rocking horse poops until now. These Graphics kits have been pretty limited, though, so it could return to such rarity soon. The “present” for Vol. 10 is the two sprues from Figure Set No. 2 (Empire Soldiers). Empire soldiers are giants among men.

The Legend of the Brown Reptex

(Spoiler alert! It’s not real.) Deep within the mists of time (early 2001), there was an auction of a bunch of loose Zoids and Robo Strux kits. Most were in pretty bad shape and the only picture was of the whole lot of them just laying on the scanner. And the quality/resolution: not so good. […]

2008-05: Um, Hammer Sapper?

In: Customized Zoids > I Made These
Last Modified: 2013-07-20
First Posted: 2008-11-05

I’ve wanted to try this on my Holotech Spinosapper’s saws forever, but was afraid of messing up. Then I found a backup. I think I did ok, even though it doesn’t look so hot up close. At least the effect was as cool looking as I had hoped. To add some contrast to the Hammer […]

HMM-008 Molga with Canory Unit

In: 2000s Misc Releases > Kotobukiya HMM
Last Modified: 2015-02-10
First Posted: 2008-10-29

Aaaand here’s the other half of the HMM Molga two-fer. The Canory unit has a lot of detail and looks great, but a lot of it is made from the semi-fragile brown plastic. Mine is showing stress lines where the arms mount to the gun, and also where the “jewel” under the barrel goes. Also […]

HMM-008 Molga

First Posted: 2008-10-27

This kit was actually a two-fer, coming with a regular Molga, and one in Genesis colors with the Canory Unit. The HMM-ified Molga loses the secret missile compartment in the back, but gains a TON of flexibility, plus little grub-legs. I’d say it’s a fair trade. Since there weren’t enough pitfalls to warrant a full […]

Vol. 08 Puterasu

First Posted: 2008-10-22

So far, this one’s staying MIB until I can make more shelf room. I did take out the bonus “present” for this set, though. It’s the other sprue from Remodel Set No. 1!
