1/144 HG 00 Gundam

And here are the fully colored pictures of the upcoming HG 1/144 00 Gundam. The 00 Gundam has never looked cooler. I hope they made a master grade as soon as possible. I wonder if it has any more weapons than that though, two swords definitely doesn't live up to the seven swords of Exia. Anyway, look forward to it as it releases in September.

Robot Soul Figure Line

Apparently there's a new line of Gundam figures called Robot Damashii, or Robot Soul. They are made of PVC and stand 12cm tall. It's the newer, better, and hopefully cheaper line of MSIA and fix figurations. Here are some upcoming Robot Soul figures, which actually all belong to the second season of Gundam 00.

00 Gundam - October Release

Seravii Gundam - November Release

Cherbim Gundam - November Release

Arios Gundam - October Release

GN Flag - November Release

Yay a GN Flag figure, I just want a model kit of it really. I love my Over Flag model but the GN Flag is a lot more badass in my opinion. The Robot Soul line looks promising, I look forward to these.

Plamo Updates...rather delayed...

Alright so it's been awhile, but here I am with updates so blow me.

HG 1/144 00 Gundam

These pictures are pretty old, I'm sure there are pictures of the finished, colored version. Whatever, feast your eyes on the first model kit for the 00 Gundam series' signature Gundam, the 00 Gundam. Due awhile. I don't know, honestly.

HCM-Pro 00 Gundam

Models and figures of the 00 Gundam are already coming out, and the second season hasn't even started yet! They sure are going all out with the marketing. Well, the sooner the better. This is the HCM-Pro of the 00 Gundam. The proportions look a little weird when compared to the images of the 00 model kits, but oh well, its an HCM-Pro. Coming out in September.

HCM-Pro Cherubim Gundam

And along with the 00 Gundam, we have the Cherubim Gundam, the Dynames clone. Whatever, I just hope it kicks as much ass in the anime. Due out in November (long way to go).

The Dark Knight...for the third time.

Yeah, who hasn't seen The Dark Knight. Nobody needs a review to know what's like anymore, I'm sure the majority of Americans have seen it by now, most of them more than once. Me, I saw it three times. Yeah, I paid to see it THREE times...and I enjoyed it all three times. The third time was at an IMAX theatre, and let me tell you, THAT is an experience. A lot of the action scenes were shot with an IMAX camera, so watching them on the big screen was more than magnificent.
I'm not going to bother explaining wow it was so good, you just have to see it for yourself (IF you haven't seen it that is). Heath Ledger's performance was especially praise worthy. He strayed from the traditional portrayal of the Joker and created his own character, which was actually a good move. This one was more viciously violent and psychotic than ever, which fits the dark mood of the movie. Sometimes it was hard to believe it was actually Heath Ledger under all that make-up, especially considering his other critically acclaimed role (a gay man in Brokeback Mountain).

"Here's my card"

As with most other viewers (apparently), I had only had one minor gripe with the movie. And this gripe was with the main character, unfortunately. Why does Batman sound like a grizzly bear with lung cancer? His ill-attempted deep scary voice fell short of average, especially if you compare it to the Batman in the animated series, who actually made it work. Previous Batmen just made their voices lower, but Christian Bale chose to sound like he had a hole in his throat. It really wasn't easy to listen to, and made his entire character seem a bit corny. Nonetheless, this is tolerable, considering how great the rest of the film is.

"Don't look now, but I think I'm being watched"

I watched it three times. I'm actually proud of that. Well, there's a catch to that. I didn't pay for any of the tickets. I was treated to every single viewing. Haha, yeah it would be a different feeling if I were the one buying the tickets, but honestly, if I had the money I would have paid for them anyway. The IMAX tickets were especially expensive ($18?). If you haven't seen it, please do. You have NO idea what you are fact I have NO idea why you wouldn't have seen it by now.
