Since this is currently only 50% on topic, I figured I'd toss it in here. I've been blogging about Zoids and Gunpla for about six weeks now and the site stats are depressing, so I'm going to start plugging this thing everywhere. Right now I'm updating every other week and alternating between Zoids and Gundams; the most recent entry is about the HMM Dibison.
I'm thinking eventually I'll write things other than straight build reports and descriptions of paintjobs I've done. One idea I had was to discuss the whiteheads all in one entry, for example. Thing is, though, there's enough good information out there already, so I'm not sure what I'm contributing unless I'm writing about this stuff from a very subjective angle - at least then it isn't the same things you can read in a million other places. We'll see.
Anyway, check it out, let me know what you think, blah blah, you know.
Wow had so much fun to read some of your reviews! Especially that from the Gojulas HMM was interesting as i had many of the thoughts too you mentioned for example the gold pilot. Will have a look constantly on you site! Cougan
Next week I'll probably have the MG Sinanju, that one's pretty much ready to go. And then we'll see. I should probably write something about the Masterpiece Zoids, there seems to be next to no info out there about those and I have both.

Since I'm being a total attention hound lately anyway, I'll post this here too - I made a video slideshow of this build for Youtube. Couple pictures here that aren't on the blog, but it's mostly alternate versions of others that I did use.
Man, you folks keep making Death Stinger look more and more appealing!
That's because it's a great kit and you should get one!
It really has basically none of the usual Kotobukiya issues other than the ugly colors, and even those are limited to the armor where it's very easily fixable. No inexplicably maroon-colored ABS plastic parts in plain sight or anything like that. It's sturdy, it's fun to build, and it looks great. And it's not like having to paint it is a problem for someone with your skills, if anything, that should be incentive to buy one.
I wont comment here much because it won't really contribute to anything but keep these coming. If you ever feel like you need direct feedback, shoot me a pm anytime. So far I love every entry.
Well, I'd be happy to hear your thoughts either way, you can probably tell from the length of these that I like to talk about this stuff, heh. Anyway, thanks, it's good to hear you're enjoying this stuff. I'm kind of out of really interesting builds at the moment, but I'll probably do the eHobby Valga next week. About time I wrote about a motorized Zoid, methinks. With a video. Yep.
If you would prefer, I can post my thoughts on your articles here instead of PM. Whatever keeps your content coming.
How much did you pay for Valga? I am really looking forward to that review.
I don't see why we wouldn't talk about this stuff here, really, and besides, maybe someone else wants to chime in.
I paid about 100$ for the Valga MIB, which actually isn't too bad considering I saw some scalper on Amazon trying to sell the regular version for something north of 300. I got it through a guy who posted his entire MIB collection on the Zoidfans Facebook page, along with a bunch of other good stuff like an MIB Golgola and GTO.
