What's in the bag?

Bought a large bag of gunpla earlier this week. Man I kinda wish they have other bags for me to hold them other than this which looks like a bin liner of some sort...

What on earth have I bought? You shall see after the jump.

And here's the answer:

5 boxes of HGUC 1/144 Ball twin set. Yes, that's 5 boxes there, which will give me 10 Balls to work on.

And yes I sure have the Balls to do that (laughs).

Oh yes mass produced cannon fodders for the win~ Having 2 Balls from each box is like spawning zerglings in StarCraft and StarCraft II, and just like the Zerg counterpart the Balls excels in quantity, overwhelming their enemies in numbers ^^;

Zergling rush from StarCraft II. This is a screenshot from development stage (pre-beta).

I am actually nearly finished on building them. If you have been following my twitter then you may have seen some 'progress' pictures already. Stay tuned for the "ball rush". :o


  1. The Balls! Can't stop them touching!!

    Seriously though, how big are they? They can't be particularly large, being 1/144 and all. I don't remember the MG ball being particularly huge either, but they decked it with tonnes of details!

  2. The Zergs aren't too bad if you have the psi disrupter =P

    So there's 2 balls in one box? seems like a pretty sweet deal ^^

  3. @ gundamjehutykai:
    I have nothing to say regarding your first line of comment ^^;

    If you exclude the gun and the arms, the Ball itself is just a big bigger than a golf ball. This 1/144 version follows the original anime rendition. The MG version is a big redesign by Hajime Katoki, and he makes the Ball looks like no random cute cannon fodder!

    @ AstrayP03 (Zhe):
    Ack, the Psi Discrupter! BUT the Balls are ranged units compared to zerglings which are melee only :P

    2 Balls in one box is not a bad deal, just like the 1/144 Loto from Gundam UC, and it's just like how zerglings are spawned ^^

  4. Hey Buddy, nice pick up! I'd love to get a set too and have them displayed with my others, but I've got a lot on my plate right now. I can't wait to see your work on them though, should be awesome!

  5. Well, have fun with your balls... xD

    A couple of siege tanks will do the trick against zergling swarms ;)

  6. LOL! Impressive. You sure got the... GUTS to get 5 pairs of Balls XD

    So... Are you changing your blog name to Daybreak's Balls and change your comment counts to "Balls" instead of "bells"? ROFL XD

  7. @ Apt-1B:
    The HGUC 1/144 Balls may be too small and too simple for you. But they are great in numbers!

    @ anonymous_object:
    (Um, I will have fun with my... Mobile pods ^^;)

    Ack, first the psi disruptor, now the siege tanks ^^;;

    That's why just like the zerglings, the Balls will need other units in a combined force to be effective. In this case I will need some GMs... :o

    @ Lightning Sabre:
    Hahaha you sure like to make the fun out of them ^^;

    Thanks for the suggestions, but no thanks ^^; I did think of changing banner and layout in the future though. I just need to get around to it.
