Gundam Wing – Heavy Arms Kai Figure

I may be enjoying the second season of most current Gundam series called Gundam Double O but the Gundam Wing Series is one of my favourite anime series of all time with the movie based on the series Gundam Endless Waltz a classic. Heavy Arms is my favourite suit from the series piloted by the coolest pilot Trowa Barton. I acquired the remodeled and upgraded Heavy Arms Custom used in the Endless Waltz movie.

This Gundam is called “Heavy Arms” for a reason

This one was a bit more difficult to put together than Gundam Double 0, as expected the instructions were all in Japanese but it was helpful to have had previous experience. I love my two figures who now stand guard to greet anyone who enters my room. To be the first to know when I acquire a new figure as well as to follow my babbling while I put them together and take pictures of them follow me on twitter.

  1. My cousins are fans of this show! I more into Naruto and Ruroni Kenshin. Nice figures though! ^^v

  2. Awesome! I have that model kit as well. It’s one of the first Endless Waltz kits I built. The stickers were difficult for me to put on too, lol. I’ve always wanted buy another one just to paint it. Gundam models are hard to find in Brick-and-Motar stores nowadays. :(

  3. Hi – BBC Four http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/ have a Japan season coming up – I read some of the preview material and thought of you … from Jamaica Salt blog

    Many things say Japan – kimonos, temples, sushi…
    Yet it’s the image of a girl in a cardboard box that BBC Four has chosen to trail its Japan Season. Using an animation, the trail explains that ‘girl in a box’ is a Japanese expression given to a girl with over protective parents. Have a guess at the origins of another idiom in the trail, ‘bar code bald’. That one describes the comb-over job used by balding men. Oliver Harnett from Red Bee (who made the trails) describes the thinking behind
    it all. ‘Language is the key to any culture, and in the course of our research, we discovered that the Japanese have an amazing array of words of which there is no equivalent. They’re weird portholes into how Japanese people see the
    world.’ Channel controller Richard Channel controller Richard
    Klein agrees. ‘The trails are a way of saying Japan is just different.’ They certainly give an enigmatic introduction to a season on a country that Klein
    describes an enigma. Inspiration for the season
    came off the back of Japan: A Story Of Love And Hate, where
    filmmaker Sean McCallister meets a businessman (salagirl in box ryman) who lost everything when the bubble burst in the 90s. ‘It offered the chance to
    look at Japan through a different lens… I thought if we could find other ways to show that it’s a difficult place to understand, we could have a season,’
    says Klein. What followed were two other commissions: Fish! A Japanese Obsession about the country’s cultural and culinary connections. And
    Japan: In Search of Wabi Sabi With Marcel Theroux, about
    the wabi sabi philosophy, (which Wiki describes as ‘a
    Japanese world view or aesthetic
    centred on the
    acceptance of transience’).
    In among the commissioned
    programmes, trails,
    and archive footage about the
    country, Red Bee has created
    15 mini ‘Japanese words of
    the day’ films. ‘You should be
    aware that there is something
    Japanese going on on the
    channel,’ says Harnett.
    You’ll probably come away
    with a better Japanese vocabulary
    and insight into the country,
    but it won’t be the complete
    encyclopaedia. You’ll recognise
    that Japan is still mysterious,
    but that’s part of its charm. You
    could probably say the same
    for England really…’

  4. That’s funny, I liked Gundam Seed much more than Wing (the model is very cool though), but as Sanjo-chan wrote before, many Gundam fans didn’t like it. Endless Waltz is great though, as you say a classic ^^

    In fact, a Japanese gal was pretty shocked when I told her I loved Seed, she hated it and preferred other Gundam series

  5. Aaahhh this brings back memories “Gundam Wing” one of my preferred Gundam series to date Heavy Arms is pretty good but if you can force him to use up most of his arsenal it becomes disadvantageous even though it is equipped with that melee what I would describe as a “cutlass” under one of its hands its still not suite for melee combat well against another mobile suite of its standards I’m sure that Trowa would make quick work of any Leos or Ares in his general vicinity I remember the first time he cross Quetra (I think the spelling is) in his “Sandrock” Gundam Mobile Suite of Desert Melee warfare. My preferred Gundams were the “Zero”, “Shenlong” & “Deathsythe” other from that I also liked the Talgesse Series preferbly the Talgesse II which was piloted by in my opinion one of the most talented pilots “Treize Khushrenada”, Epyon and the Mercurius yes yes I know basically I liked the whole series but I think that Gundam Seed was exceptional perhaps my most preferred series of Gundam family.

  6. memories that takes me back!!!!!! the king of death lives again… by any chance do you have the deathscythe gundam model [gamer]
