Here’s an old set of photos. Ever wondered what Dollfies do in their spare time? For my little vinyl girls, aside from being avid gamers, They also do a build plastic models or gunpla every now and then. Here’s some photos during their first attempt at putting together their own gunpla.
I hope they can read the manual.
The girls get their first look at what they're up against.
And so they're off.. I guess I'll see how they do in an hour or so.
Sooo.. I wonder what other fellow doll parents let their girls do other than pose for the camera.

It’s Thursday(barely) again folks and you know what that means.
For this week’s helping, I thought I’d pay a little homage to my rebooted blogger page; “Atomic Espresso“. Since it’ll mostly house my plamos and gunpla related works, what else could be better at showcasing the marriage of Zettai ryouiki moe and mecha other than Mecha Musume.
“Mecha musume (メカ娘, meka musume?, mecha girl) are moe anthropomorphisms similar to the OS-tans. Mecha musume is the accepted term in the west, but the Japanese call them mecha shōjo (メカ少女, meka shōjo?, lit. mecha girl), although the term heiki musume (兵器娘, heiki musume?, weapon girl) is also infrequently used. Mecha Musume is the term used by the artist Humikane Shimada (島田フミカネ) for his copyrighted commercial and artistic designs.” – Wikipedia
Meanwhile, I found this nifty little feature on Imageshack which allows me to slap a buncha picks on wordpress in one fell swoop. Pretty nifty since it allows me to host my pics off-site and also has a mass uploader. Nice. Ok then, I won’t keep your mince pies away from the goods any longer and let you enjoy the rest of the pics. Just clicky the pics to take you to teh better sized ones. Enjoy~! Continue reading
You may all remember the 1/100 MG Shin Musha Gundam from the game Gundam Musou Special which was released by Bandai a bout a year and a half ago. It was big bad and red with lotsa gold bling on it’s armor. It was earth shakingly awesome.
Now what could be better than a Gundam clad in Japanese Samurai armor wielding Naginatas and Katanas, slicing and dicing through mass produced units? Continue reading
I’ll make this brief.
The Day of the Unicorn has arrived.
So, Gundam UC started airing the other day and I managed to grab the first subbed piece that was out early morning the next day. All I can say was.. it gave me goose bumps… *cries manly tears*. The fight scenes were how I remember a Gundam fight were and should always be. None of them beam spamming and whiny emo pilots.
Although for those who seen previous Gundam Series; will somewhat call the circumstances of how he got the RX-0 cliched, as a friend mentioned. Also, many bits and bobs in the first episode will bring in nostalgia to some, especially to those who are very familiar with the Zeta Arc. Cameos from a few familiar faces dot the episode as well.
And lastly.. the mechas… oh how can I not mention the mechas. METAL PRON! Kshatriya is an effin’ monster. And with a VERY capable pilot at it’s helm, it wreaks havoc against any squad of cannon fodders. Heck, damn thing even tore through a couple of Z’s like they were frickin GM’s. Lovely bits if I do say so myself. And the Unicorn itself? well, I guess we’ll have to see it at its first outing with it’s “chosen” pilot.
I can’t wait for the next episode.. and so aptly titled for the second coming of the UC timeline; RED COMET.
Just spotted this over at fellow Dannychoo.com member Yunamon’s Blog.
Long time coming.. FINALLY!! A Master Grade kit of Victory Gundam; and a Version Ka at that! I still remember When I had the 1/100 HG’s of this thing. I had every single variant of it.
