I decided to take a break from my Gunpla modeling and get into a little bit of character modeling. Something off the beaten path if you will.  :lol:  There's a cool show that's been airing in japan called Aim for the Top 2: Die Buster by Gainax. It's their follow up sequel to the show Gunbuster. NONO is one of the characters in that show. She kicks much butt too. Oh and the figure is also cool. The kit was only available at a Wonderfest 2006 show in japan over the summer. It's pretty limited in terms of quantity and is only available on the secondary market through Yahoo Japan auctions.

Anyway enough of my fanboy blabbing. I've got some prog pics up at the site and I'll post some of the completed figure when I get good and ready! :razz:

Excellent!  More figure builders!   :D   Looking forward to this.  I'm a huge fan of the original Gunbuster series.  I have the sequel downloaded but have yet to find the time to watch it.  Might have been a good thing too, since it would probably end up tempting me to grabbing the kit too...

Man! You know, I've never seen the original and I really want to now after seeing most of the sequel and building this kit up. I highly recommend seeing this though. Animation quality is top-notch, I say!

As for the figure. It rules. It's quite nifty and comes with a few additions, like leg missle bays. Only Gainax could come up with that, right?  It also has 2 faces for NONO, regular, and an open mouth. And serveral extra hands.

And even though it's molded in colour adding paint really enhances the vibe IMO. All in all it's a lot of fun and looks good next to other kits in the detolf. If you can find it and have some extra scrilla, get this kit! It sells for 10000-25000 Yen on YJ.
