Went to hunt for some sale kits and Robot Spirits – Damashii models but sadly no Robot Spirits and the selections was quite few. Almost all are HGBF that I am not that interested in.

Review: 1/144 HGUC LM312V04 Victory Gundam (Bandai)

This is just a showcase review (still a review) to test out my new lighting set-up and reading The Strobist as recommended by peers in order to learn about proper lighting. I’m also trying to learn portrait photography (with at least one light source) and street photography as a hobby.

Regardless of just doing toy photography, I suggest you get a FREE copy of David ‘The Strobist’ Hobby’s Lighting 101 here.

I haven’t got a proper photo of my light set-up yet but it is composed of two fill lights using household 9W CFL mounted on cheap desk lamps and one ugh 9ft Light Stand that should have been just 7ft paired with a shoot through umbrella as seen here in the photo from the The Strobist.

Yes, of course I have a flash by way of a Yongnuo YN-560 Mk. III controlled by a remote flash trigger.

Now, we should probably go along with the review!

HGUC Victory Gundam is actually a 1/144 re-release as the first HG Victory Gundam was released sometime in the mid 90s as a 1/100 scale. There was of course a 1/144 release but a No Grade one. I personally have a 1/144 Victory gundam that was unfortunately stolen when I was kid. Now let’s get going.

Manufacturer: Bandai
Scale: 1/144
Grade: High Grade Universal Century
Origin: Mobile Suit Victory Gundam
Price: Not For Sale, price reference: 950PHP or 1200JPY
