While July is not over yet, I probably won’t be heading back to Akiba for a while so here is the photos for this month. First off, lets start with our Gundam updates. As you recall last month, we got a chance to see the O in it’s test form, but this month we get to see the new Deathscythe in it’s completed form.
Looking at it, I have to say I’m actually a little underwhelmed by it. Maybe it’s the head, or the colors, but something just doesn’t hit me like it should be.
Next up, Asobit City, which births a lot of awesome kits you see in Dengeki hobby magazine. While GaiGun and myself were there, they just happened to be doing the RG Gundam. By the looks of it, the colors seem to be a mix of Okawara colors and FA Gundam Colors. They also had some really nice looking metallic/extra finish style kits on display that looked amazing.
Next up, scouring the back streets to look for cheap gunpla, and in my case, to gawk at my favorite things, the gentei kits. And this time we found pretty much the everything.
Yeah… that’s a lot of expensive model kits there. Nearly 500 dollars for some kits. And I was surprised to find a G-3 PG Gundam. Needless to say, that one was gone when I went back a couple days after I saw it the first time. While I did look mainly at Gundam kits this last month, I did swing by Kotobukiya as I wanted to see the Rockman kit. Unfortunately they had already taken it down and put up the new mini Hoi-hoi-san in it’s place.
Other than that, I treated myself to a new lens, and am having fun taking pictures of the same places all over again.
That’s all for this months addition. Next up on the plate is a new kit review for HLJ, followed by the revival of the monthly State of the Gunpla Union, which will catch you up on my situation.
