"Mobile Suit Gundam 00- Season One Part One" Double The Pleasure

It’s been a rough few years for the old warhorse that is Gundam lately. The series continues to fail at securing a global foothold and the mess that was Gundam SEED Destiny alienated audiences even within the series’ homeland. Given these circumstances, it’d be pretty easy to just give up if the next project on […]

SD Gundam GUNPLA: Recession on economy, recession on possibilities.

Being a 20-something (sorry, Count) geek, it should be no suprise that I collect toys/models. My poison of choice is Gunpla, Japan’s lucrative market of model kits based on Mobile Suit Gundam.

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen": Pretty Much What Meets The Eye

After the success of Michael Bay’s 2007 Transformers film, it was obvious that we’d get a sequel.

Let's see here...

News continues to pour in about July’s Master Grade Gundam Exia Ignition Mode kit, including a very snazzy looking promotional poster: Very sharp looking, eh? You can really see the level of detail and gimmicks they’ve put into it and that 1500 yen first run discount only makes it even more tempting. I guess that’s […]
