Here's is one mecha anime that's worth mentioning! 'Knight of Sidonia' is one you should watch for its outstanding CG works as well as the serious plot where desperation and tragedy unveiled. The original work to Knights of Sidonia is a manga of the same name by Tsutomu Nihei. The mecha design of Tsugumori, in a way shared some similarities to Zeta Gundam. Then again the primary colour of white with some red of Tsugumori reminded me of L.E.D Mirage of 'Five Stars Stories'. Anyway, I loved the anime as much as I like the robot which drive me on a hunt for this Templar knight of Sidonia.

'Simply Toy' seems to be the only store distributing Kotobukiya products locally. With the help of Desmond, who's a member of the store, I managed to get my hands of this earlier manga version of Type-17 Guardian Shiratsuki Custom Tsugumori, piloted by the main character Tanikaze Nagate @ a discount. So glad that Kotobukiya decided on this ideal scale of 1/100 like the size of MG Gundam standing approximately 8". I would say the assembly was slightly more challenging compared to Gunpla or should I say I'm more used to Bandai kits. Nonetheless, the parts fit well just that the plastic feels more fragile. The kit is well articulated with wide range of movement, 40 points of articulations suggested by product ad. Basically the runners are already in the right colors , therefore I only drew penal lines and painted the finger tips red which felt like doing manicure. Wifee was complaining I should help her apply nail polish. Lol. 

Picture references on the box only suggested minimum water slide decals used. I added a bit more using decals from other brands. Without failed, I finished the kit will a layer of matt topcoat. The spear is only handheld accessory to the figure then again, who would not want to put this awesome looking sacred weapon in the hand of Tsugumori. I had the spear sprayed white and painted the pointy tip red. Other melee weapon would be the red spike on the forearm that could be swing forward. Angular armour long thin limbs. The feet are kind of small and bulky back booster which affect the stability of the kit in reality. Kotobukiya could have provided the display stand in making the kit more complete.

Sharing some pics and Gunpla done by Jin Feng, our recent member to Gundam Chit-Chat-Club. Some really nice Gunpla works of mainly MG 1/100 scale with combination of good photography using black background. I just learned from JF that using a black stand with black background, the stand base would not be visible in the pics. I didn't think of that before. Hehe... By the way, JF is more of a U.C timeline fan, just like me. JF is also a matured collector of Hot Toys Ironman and manga as well. He believed that we shall pampered ourselves for working hard daily. We all shall spend a little on hobbies as long as not overboard. Kudos to Gundam Chit-Chat-Club.

Leader of the self proclaimed Galaxy strongest force to be reckoned with and immodestly named after their great captain, Ginyu! You will love him for the comic relief or hate him for that demonic alien appearance. Well, he was most remembered for switching body with Goku and eventually ended up switching body with an alien frog during his downfall. One thing for sure, Banpresto love Ginyu and inducted him to their High Quality DX prefabricated fixed pose prize figure volume 3. Enemies of the assembled high quality DX gather to fans in the popular anime "Ginyu" or "Ginew" as printed on the closed box design. So far none of his fellow Ginyu Force member had received the honor of HQDX series. 

Ginyu is a freakin monster in size standing magnificently tall at the height of 19cm approximately 9" firmly on a black round base. Weighs pretty heavy as well. Exquisite paint work with skin tone faithful to the anime. Impressive sculpt in terms of the facial expression, the veins running on the forehead, the muscles and horns that looks awesome on close-up. Of course, I love the scouter and Saiyan armour too! Figure posed of Ginyu's open handed ready-to-fight stance with that overconfidence expression.
