Gundam: CB-0000G/C Reborns Gundam

Finally! This is one awesome kit. No stickers used here, just paint with a bit of gundam markers and, as usual, panel lined with enamel. The purple on the head and chest piece was a result of mixing blue and red gundam markers, it turned out to be quite O.K, although a bit dark. However, there are few areas I'am not bother to paint and just skip it.



This suit reflects the pilot; Ribbons Almark, an androgynous appearance of both feminine and masculine. Here, a Gundam with high heels?





Reborns Cannon coversion...extend the shoulders so the head can be lowered down the body and pops out the Cannon's head at the back.





Unfortunately, you have to remove the hands, rotate the arms, the fit in the Cannon's funny looking three fingered hands.


Some neat mechanical feature for the legs, swivel it backwards and the sides extend outwards.



The GN Shield and buster rifle.


The Reborns Cannon mode.




Looks weird from the rear.


Those GN-Fangs are removable.


The only paint job I skipped was on the front skirt. They should be a bit of a light yellow, I did try mixing yellow and white Gundam markers but it turned out uneven. So I left that part out.


Just put everything in reverse to get back to Gundam mode.






Too lazy to paint the saber.





Comparing with the O Gundam.

Randomness For Today...

My next built, Reborns Gundam. Done with the torso, hands and the Reborns Cannon head. Also panel lines with enamel still in progress.


No foil stickers here, just paint with green metallic gundam marker.


Today, I went somewhere on planet earth and visit this local toyshop selling some cheap and more likely, some old and out of production toys, and to my surprise, I found this vintage toy called 'CUPCAKES'. I remember watching it on TV toy commercials during the early 90's and this is no exceptional. Being the only piece on the shelf and with price tag of BND $9.80, I decided to grab it for my daughter and she like it so much. I checked eBay, and its definitely to be a VHTF (Very Hard To Find) item nowadays.




Date of production; 1990!



Cupcakes conversion...No legs here, the petticoat is made up of some stiff rubber-like plastic. So it stands on its petticoat.


Fold the petticoat up...


The big hat as a top filling.


And its now a cupcake. Although Its not edible.


After my daughter done playing with her (sooner or later), you know kids! they tend to lose interest quickly if there's something new, I planned to put it back in its clamshell case and treasure it. For the mean time, I let her enjoying her playtime moment.


Next, this cute POP HEROES Superman vinyl figure from Funko.



Size comparison with a SD Gundam.


There are several 'heroes' and 'villains' to collect. Dare to collect them all?


I guess this goes safely stored with my smurf.

Gundam: SD Gundam Songokuden Tenshiho Shibai Sazabi (Snapfitted)

Ago, I stumbled upon somebody's blog doing a review on this kit and it inspired me to get one in whatever means necessary. Lucky for me, a friend of mine still have some boxed SD Songokudens, including this kit. So, instead of getting it online, I bought it from 'her' for a reasonable price. It saves me money and time. Lucky me!


Just snapfitted. No paints and decals yet.





I think I have a good idea to deal with this foil stickers. Not now, but soon!



This is what inspired me so much to get this kit; the 'Nightingale' mode.


The 'Nightingale' conversion.
