Below you'll find recordings of the Gundam UC Ep6 + Sunrise Panel, and also the panel for Kazuhiro Furuhashi, the director of Gundam Unicorn. The pre-made questions for Furuhashi are almost identical between the two recordings so you're likely going to fast forward, but I believe that there is interspersed some additional questions for Michael Sinterniklaas, the English director. So there is some merit to sitting down for it. Some neat things you'll hear if you listen to both. The Gundam UC panel had this session where fans came up to attempt to dub Angelo, one of them is REALLY good. At the Sunrise panel when ZZ Gundam is announced, you can hear about 5 people being really excited and the rest being very confused because they have not heard of ZZ Gundam before.
It's a shoutout for the upcoming Ka Signature Robot Spirits release of the Xi Gundam, and the tweet that continues is that there may be elements from the era of Hathaway's Flash in Episode 7.
And then I remembered that Shin Sasaki, one of the core Sunrise producers for Unicorn had mentioned last year at Otakon 2012 that Hathaway's Flash was a personal favorite. Wait, what's that you've never seen this? Well for some reason or another neither ANN nor any other anime related site seems to have posted a transcript of that panel. I'm actually disappointed that there is no breakdown. ANN supposedly had an hour interview with the man, but it's never surfaced.
Hmmmah my plan to use the Evolve style vents will require me to scratchbuild the vents. Flipping the it around gives it the knock off Chinese Gundoom look where they didn't fix the orientation. Vent needs to be straight, not slanted when reversed for the Evolve look.
Here you can see I drilled out the vents and created a new bar, as well as adding some detail in the upper corners. There, the vents are flipped and are straight, no shitty knock off look.
Also, did some hole mods to the shoulder.
First drilled 3 holes, then I covered the back side with some plastic. This allows me to create some embedded circular detail.
Thought I would post some of my pictures for those interested in the Hobby Online Exclusive MG Tallgeese 2. For those curious, all the runners have been recolored. Even the whites are a different shade. In Japan, it has the same MSRP 3800 Yen. Unfortunately for those outside Asia where there is no Bandai Premium shop, you are out of luck. There is some unfortunate red tape in the way that prevents even us from carrying every item in addition to logistic concerns (I don't think we could possibly sell enough of some of these items for the massive initial investment in bringing them).
