HG 1/144 GF13-017J Shining Gundam - Review by Team GG [Falldog]

Hey, Falldog here with my first Gunpla review for GG INFINITE NEWS! Today I'm going to talk about a bit about one of Bandai's newest releases, the HG Shining Gundam. Just over 17 years since its debut Shining Gundam, the lead suit for most of the G Gundam series, has become an icon of Bandai's crazy, yet much loved, diversion from the typical Gundam formula.

Review [Part 1] - Runners & Foil Sticker Preview Images
GG INFINITE: PRE-ORDER ITEM (Click link to product page)
For this first part review, we will only be showing the image of the runners & foil sticker.  I had taken a little time to start building this kit, and had completed the entire upper body.  I am really liking the Gundam AGE-1 Normal.... there's something about new gundam designs using the original RX-78-2 Gundam color scheme that really attracts me.  I felt the same way the first time I saw the 0 Gundam (Gundam 00 Series)... love at first sight.  Anyway, I will be finishing up the straight build soon, and will be sharing my thoughts about it.  And then, if times allow, I hope I could spend more time to customize it the way I did with my HG 0 Gundam.  More later...

Gundam Arcade Competition TV Show to Debut Next Month [via AnimeNewsNetwork]

TV personalities compete against Gundam: Senjō no Kizuna players from all over Japan
The broadcaster TV Tokyo will launch Bantaikan TV Kidō Senshi Gundam Dai-07 Itakura Shōtai (Feelings of Bonds: Mobile Suit Gundam: The 07th Itakura Team), a weekly televised competition based around a Mobile Suit Gundam arcade game, on October 4. Toshiyuki Itakura (The Prince of Tennis: Two Samurais, The First Game) of the comedy duo Impulse has formed a team of fellow television personalities who will compete with other teams from all around Japan on the Kidō Senshi Gundam: Senjō no Kizuna (Mobile Suit Gundam: Bonds of the Battlefield) game.
The Senjō no Kizuna game puts players in the cockpit of the robots from the first Gundam anime. The special features of this game include P.O.D. — the Panoramic Optical Display with a hemisphere-shaped screen. It also has network play so a player in one arcade can play against players in other arcades hundreds or even thousands of kilometers away.
The 07th Itakura Team consists of "Admiral" Itakura himself, Rear Admiral Hideki Morimoto of the comedy trio Nibunnogo!, Captain Ayako Uemura (a voice actress and a former AKB48 idol group member), and Vice Admiral Kabapan. Kabapan is not only a writer for the Game Watch website, but also a nationally ranked player in the Senjō no Kizuna game. TV Tokyo hints that there will be surprise guests of interest to both Gundam fans and Senjō no Kizuna fans.
A preview for the variety competition show is running at the Bandai Namco booths at this week's 49th Amusement Machine Show and Tokyo Game Show. The official website will begin accepting applications for contestants on Friday.
