BB Senshi #336 Nanpo Kibatai

A.k.a Green Military unit, I'm not familiar in which kingdom or troops does these green soldiers serves, but I remember in an early Brave Battle Warrior episode, there are green soldiers working for Ryo-Fu Tallgeese and Toutaku Zaku, the bad guys. While on the side box art, it shows Nanpo Kibatai as the army serving Asurao Mokaku Gundam and Syukuyu Gundam, riding the Kyoshin Elephant. Gotta watch the anime again. Anyway..

The first one I built from the November package I received from since it is one of the smaller Gunpla model from the box. Here's what inside..

The runners, 2 for the Ji or horse, and 1 for the soldiet, a brown wire for the horse what-you-call-it handle, the decals, the printed instruction manual where the flag cut out is also located, and a free coaster with the character print.

Now here's the built #336 Nanpo Kibatai, nice cloudy weather outside, so I went out for a little shoot..

The green army unit and his brown war horse, a shield, a battle spear, and a troop flag. Great points about this model are: the war horse, of course, and there are more detailed decals for the soldier, while the other 3-unit model kit only has for the eye part. A little less point is, I don't think there's another kit, where you will only get the soldier, or like another 3-unit kit of its kind, and if you want more units, you'll have to buy it with the horse, as part of the model kit. Not a bad idea though, could just repaint the horse for other characters, but that means work.

Here's a couple more pics..

Really like this soldier and his horse companion, might get some more, even though Im not sure right now on which right troop should I have this one place. Sadly, according to GreatToysOnline, they wont be restocking this SD model, or any of the other SD models that I got from them.

And to add this fresh-return-to-blog entry, here's another pic of the unnamed brown horse with 008 Shin Hakugin Ryuuseiba..

Long Pause Unpaused + November 2016 Houl

2 years past, and within I kept on trying to find time to make an update in this blog. I just love it, I cant abandon it completely. Anyway, Im still figuring out how blogger works on iPad, and since I'm kind of busy because of my job, upcoming posts might not be coming sooner, but will definitely come.

So last week, I got these goods from a Toys R Us private sale, after my date from Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them premier, great movie, btw.

I got a MG Age-1 Titus, and a HG Justice Gundam. Also, since there was a Gundam event happening in T'r'U that time, I got 3 free Sangokuden Army Units from a raffle, for my BBW collection which I'm also trying to continue, and a Custom Weapon Campaign, for my HG Justice Gundam.

And since I cant find time to do a descent shoot for my new Titus and Justice, nor even apply the dry transfer decals; well, none of my other Gunplas due to my schedule in that matter, I just took some phone pics..

Justice Gundam is one of my faves, and the Titus is definitely my fave Age-1 mobile suite. The HG Justice Gundam is holding the free campaign weapon from the event. While MG Titus looks cooler with its SD version. Also took a photo of HG Justice with its SD, but I cant open the image.

Also, a few days back, I made a 7 SD purchase from, most of it are Sangokuden, and I received the package last night. If you are also in the Philippines, and would want to buy Gunplas at lower price, just visit their website, most of their products are on Christmas Sale, and they have some promotions going on as well!

So excited to start these babies. Been a while since I built a SD, and would love to have my Brave Battle Warriors collection continue to grow.
