Gundam XXXG-01H HeavyArms Photos

Those who miss Gundam Wing, especially Heavy Arms XXXG-01H, here a photo and some re-work photos from official Gundam Wing Model Album.

Piloted by Trowa Barton, HeavyArms is one of most popular design from MS Gundam Wing and Endless Waltz. Dozen of heavy armor is his signature, highly provocative when the arsenal all in 'ready to shoot' mode. We will find time to explore more pose and photography with this model. For now here a teaser and the artworks re-done from official Gundam Wing album.

More Gundam Photos From Expo

Here another set of my Gundam stock photos, taken from Singapore Expo. Enjoy.

EZ8 Gundam - Mainly appeared on OVA series Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team 
piloted by the series' main protagonist Shiro Amada. Design are boxy and looks mechanical, simply a classic '80 era feel.

FA-010S Full Armour ZZ Gundam from Mobile Suit ZZ, known pilot by Judau Ashta
there is also another variation distinguished with double cannon. I like the bulky body design, looks very badass!

G Gundam or God Gundam from Mobile Fighter G Gundam. One of my favorite mecha from lesser known series. Pilot by Domon Kasshu of Neo Japan.

Nu Gundam or RX-93 v Gundam is another mecha pilot by Amuro Ray from the Char's Counterattack. One of most popular design from Universal Century, mainly for it's Psycoframe technology. Nu Gundam vs Sazabi is one of my most favorite rivalry.

Turn A Gundam or ∀ Gundam SYSTEM ∀-99 ∀ Gundam piloted primarily by Rolan Cehack. From rarely popular Turn A Gundam series in Correct Century timeline. Perhaps the most memorable mecha for it's 'mustache'....

X Gundam. This model from After War series gonna get a boost in popularity by now. Gundam Build Fighter will based on of their prime mecha using X Gundam as base model.

MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam series. In anime this was deisgned and piloted by Kamille Bidan. Another classic titular gundam from Universal Century timeline.

Gundam on the Water

Having another session with this simple concept. Found a nice wooden 'bridges' and compounds of water. Giving some touches with leaves then we go exploring for ideas. One spontaneous idea is this 'triangle-romantic' theme of Gundam. Later I decide to just focusing on lower parts. Can you guess the Gunplas in pose?

Gundam Build Fighters 2013 Preview

From the official website we then know that the next 2013 Gundam franchise will be presented in rather different concept than usual! Gundam Build Fighter was announced weeks ago and it will be a movie more a concept about toy fighting rather than another war epic. Keep the finger cross since we still have little hints on what's going on. Some of Gundam network reported that it will be a story about Gunpla builders to compete in the World Championship. So this is also mean Bandai put the Gundam world into one crossover movie, all models from Build Fighter will be taken from previous series. So far about four models being featured in detail on Bandai site. They are:

Build Strike Gundam - from Gundam SEED 
Zaku Amazing - from Gundam MSV (Mobile Suit Variation )
Gundam X Maoh - from Gundam X 
Wing Gundam Fenice - from Wing Gundam - new model?

Bandai also showcase a full lineup of Gundam HG All Project for its Gunpla incarnation. So far, here the rework of official Bandai artwork for Gundam Build Fighters 2013.

Gundam Build Fighter is the new 2013 series of Gundam, to be aired near October 2013

Gundam MSN-06S Sinanju 1-144 HGUC

One of great Gundam design is MSN-06S Sinanju. Appeared in Gundam Suit Unicorn, Sinanju Stein was produced by Earth Federation's "UC Project". Operated by Neo Zeon and piloted by the mysterious Full Frontal.

A short review for Sinanju 1/144
The model itself, a 1/144 HG, comes in great incarnation from the anime. The most striking features are the details in stickers. If you are not keen in putting smaller than nails sticker, Sinanju maybe not your luck. Almost 90% of the black colors comes as sticker, so take your time to patiently work on it. His transparent yellow shape blade is also a great extras.

Model: Gundam MSN-06S Sinanju
High Grade Universal Century
Scale: 1/144
Pilot: Full Frontal

Here few photos by partner contributor, EKA L. Shoot using Nikon DSLR D5100.
I have also posted about Sinanju previously HERE.

Gundam Astray Red Frame MBF-P02 1/144

Model: Gundam Astray Red Frame MBF-P02 
Scale: 1/144
Gundam SEED Astray

Although comes with very mechanical body design, Gundam Astray easily fit into 'samurai' image. Together with his long katana, Astray Red Frame is one of favorite for Gundam paired with sword / katana. The model actually has good articulation. It's rather simple so, there a challenge to added one or two stickers / painting on it. Here a few photos contributed by partner Eka L.

The Samurai Gundam perfectly captured in silhoutte.

Final touch in soft saturation finish - Gundam Astray Red Frame

Close up and giving some bokeh effect

Having fun with Exia
