2013 April Group Build by Gunplafanatics

    We should have more events like this. This post is for all those who took part in the Gunplafanatic Group Build at HAW today! It was great meeting you guys, sharing ideas and seeing your works live. Too bad not everyone brought down their stuff or showed up. All the better for lucky draw winners, since there are less competitors hehehe. Just ask the lucky buggers who won a limited edition MG Blitz and MG Nu Ver. Ka. YES you read right. Those were the lucky draw prizes. (Wished I had taken part.) Without further ado, here we go, awards first:

Gorgeous mecha artwork by Henry1025

    I have no idea who this guy is but I came across his artwork on Gundam Guy and there's something about it - sleek, clean, subtle - that intrigues me. Great for colour references and posing inspiration. Enjoy! Check out the rest of his works HERE.

MAN OF STEEL (Trailer 3 review)

    Let's take a break from mechs here to explore the latest and third trailer of the Superman Man of Steel movie, flying into theatres this June. Is it a bird? is it a plane? It's.....ONE FRIGGIN' AWESOME TRAILER. Woo. I certainly hope this is not one of those movies where all the good bits are in the trailers with nothing else to shout about in the film proper. But it certainly looks promising.

PACIFIC RIM (Movie preview)

    So what do we have here? At last!!! A giant robot movie not called Bayformers LOL. I still dunno what to make of Pacific Rim, an upcoming summer blockbuster that looks to be this summer's major hitter and every mecha fan's wet dream. What's it about? Giant friggin' monsters called Kaiju (which is actually a Jap term for well...giant friggin' monsters...does that make em Japanese?) invade earth from a an inter-dimensional portal deep in the Pacific Ocean (Pacific Rim, geddit?), and to fight monsters, mankind has to create monsters - enter the Jaegers. Pretty cool name for giant Psycho Gundam-sized mechas controlled by neural link via two or more pilots. Ooooh yeahhhh. We wanna watch it already LOL. Never mind if it's most likely gonna turn out to be a special effects-laden flop with zero plot direction or character development. Who cares? GIANT. FRIGGIN. ROBOTS!!!
