Arming a Celestial Being

Aside from the main Mobile Suit itself, Exia comes with a number of weaponry and accessories, including a huge display stand similar to that of Unicorn Gundam’s but fully clad in a much more complex design of various mechanical details.

This display stand is probably the most important accessory for Exia, as it houses the L.E.D. unit and wiring needed to fully realise the light-up gimmick.

Armouring a Celestial Being

Continuing the review on the 1/60 scaled Perfect Grade GN-001 Gundam Exia, it’s time to bulk up the grey inner frames with a Gundam’s signature Red-Blue-White armour pieces…

You may notice that I intentionally left out the GN Drive and opted instead to use the grey plug-in its intended slot. It was due to the connection between the GN Drive and Exia’s slot is unusually tight that it was a hassle to install and unload it in between photo shots. ^^;

Anyway, the GN Drive will be showcased in my next post focusing on Exia’s accessories…

Multiplay of a Linked Extella

Releasing in less than a week’s time, Fate/Extella Link is getting more and more info flooding its official website.

While I skipped many posts on the game’s mechanics since most of them are the same as its earlier entry, Fate/Extella, I couldn’t being myself to miss out this new element to the game itself: the 4v4 Multiplayer mode.

Also shown within the trailer itself are DLC costumes originated from Fate/Grand Order: The summer outfit of Nero and Tamamo. Looking good there, my beloved foxy miko!

While I won’t get this game on its release date, I’ll do so once the eventual Steam version comes.


Framing a Celestial Being

Released back during the holiday season last year, the 1/60 scaled GN-001 Gundam Exia is the latest in the long line of Bandai’s Perfect Grade Gunpla kits.

Announced as part of the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 10th anniversary project, the Gunpla have two slightly different versions on sale on the market: The Lighting version, which has the L.E.D. unit for Exia’s Aurora Luminescence gimmick, similar to the Psycho Frame gimmick of the Perfect Grade 1/60 scaled RX-0 Unicorn Gundam; The regular release, which is essentially the same kit but without the L.E.D. unit.

Initially not interested due to the hefty price tag of the Lighting version, which unlike PG Unicorn’s L.E.D. unit that was sold separately from the Gunpla itself, it wasn’t until I’ve learned of a 3rd party L.E.D. unit being released by Mo Jiang Hun (模匠魂/MJH) a few months later that it reignited my interest in getting the Perfect Grade.
