Gunpla Dojo: HGBF 58 Star Burning Gundam Review

With the release of Gundam Build Fighters: GM’s Counterattack, Sunrise produced various kits based on the special. From this product came the missing link between the Star Build Strike and the Build Burning. That being the Star Burning Gundam, Sei Iori’s Gunpla intended for Reiji should he ever return. The kit/suit is built around fusing elements from Seed era Mobile Suits, and G Gundam’s Mobile Suits produced by Neo Japan. One can easily see the references to both the Shining Gundam, and the Burning Gundam through its head and forearms.…

Gunpla Dojo: HGUC 205 Gundam Tristan Review

Today, we have a new addition to the Gunpla Dojo! This newest addition is none other the RX-78AN-01 Gundam AN-01 “Tristan“, or simply the Gundam Tristan.

That means information I have on this suit is limited, ranging from official descriptions, and brief synopsis/summaries on the suit’s origin, as well as its pilot. What I can say without spoiling the review is…
