The search for Hiblow

For the past week, have been doing online research for shops that sells Hiblow air pump in Singapore. So far, these are the ones:

1) Clementi Flourist and Aquarium (C328) --- Hiblow HP20 ($168)
2) Bangkit Marketplace fish shop --- Hiblow HP20 ($188), Hiblow HP40 ($200)
3) Petmart --- Hiblow HP20 ($150), Hiblow HP40 (200)
4) 2nd hand Hiblow from forums --- HP20 ($80-$120), HP40 ($100+)

Considering to get it from C328, if cannot then from Bangkit, dun think will be getting 2nd hand ones because user claims to be in good condition although used for ~1yr and need to self-collect at hougang... rather pay abit more for a brand new one.

1/144 HG Hyperion Gundam

Finally completed after many weeks. Quite an interesting kit. Screwed up ALOT of areas, especially the black paint on the back cannon, and the yellow triangles. Hopefully, flat topcoat might be able to hide some of these flaws, or otherwise make them even more obvious :x.....
Only thing left is to add decals and flat topcoat.

MG Destiny

Now this is a MUST-GET kit. The boxart is simply spectacular!!! Bandai released 2 versions of this kit, similar to the 2 versions of MG Strike Freedom. The other one is the MG Destiny Extreme Blast Mode. Not much difference from this normal one, except the wings of light, palma fiocina effect, silver inner frame. For me, this normal one is good enough, I could just spray the inner frame silver or gun metal to get the same effect. Besides, i think this boxart is much nicer XDImproved articulation compared to the NG 1/100 version at torso/waist area, thigh areas as well. Can be posed similar to the boxart.

Full set of weapons included, beams for the beam boomerangs are also in the kit. They even provide different lengths of it. Different hands included for different action poses. The shield can be slided in or out too.

Huge changes to the wing compared to the NG 1/100. Each individual wing can be moved individually. Noticeable increase in length of the wings, makes the whole kit look more menacing.

Stand included, similar to MG Freedom, dry transfer decals also provided, miniature figure of Shinn and Rey also included. No idea why Rey is inside.... I'm definitely getting this one.

MG Force Impulse

Bandai finally released and Impulse in MG. Weird thing that its only Force Impulse, probably they might use the other 2 Impulse as another MG, like Launcher/Sword Strike.
Lots of interesting stuff in this kit, like a golden card inside, something like first edition i think. Also includes the Excalibur from sword impulse.

You can pose it such that its similar to the anime scene where Force Impulse destroyed Freedom.

It can be separated into the core splender/chest flyer/leg flyer/force silhouette. Nothing much actually as the NG 1/100 version also can do this, except that this MG is more detailed, like the chest thingie folding up to cover the head.

Another difference from the NG 1/100 version is that the 'wings' of the flight pack can be folder! The main body can be fitted with different packs like I.W.S.P, Aile/Sword/Launcher pack, Strike Noir pack, and both Akatsuki's pack. The flyer comes with wheels too XD. In all, definitely a great kit to have, but I dun think i will be getting one.
