In real life, I go by the name of Chris, but in the realms of the internet, I am known as GundamJehutyKai!
The name itself came by an IRC chat many moons ago and is a combination of my 3 main loves: Anime (Gundam), Video Games (Jehuty) and Giant mecha, which can be seen from the names used. The "Kai" was just added later as a suffix.
I'm a pretty big collector of anime figures and spend a lot of my time building and painting resin kits, so I tend to be more active on the Destructoid sister site, Tomopop but I thought I would jump the gap and see what else is in store!
I've been playing video games since the days of the NES and I still own almost all my consoles which I have purchased over the years, all in still working condition!
As well as building anime model kits and playing video games, I also maintain a small blog which I use primarily to show the progress of whatever model kit I am working on but I also throw in a few random video games review and particularly noteworthy news as well.
Feel free to check it out if you wish.
It's not often that there is synergy between 2 of my loves, Model kit building and Video games but one just turned up and it's a doozy!
For some reason I feel compelled to share this little nugget after I posted it up on Tomopop. Not sure why it was never announced on the destructoid front page like when the persona figures did, but whatever!
Here is a look at one of my most recent purchases, straight from Japan. And lets just say she was not cheap!!
This is a resin kit of KOS-MOS ver 4 from Xenosaga Episode 3 from a Japanese company called VOLKS.
1/4 scale and reaching 43cm in height, she's rather big and very expensive to boot. I won't bore you with numbers but the kit itself cost more than a PS3 (that's before the slim btw) but she was so gorgeous that I just had to get one.
But an unfinished, unpainted kit probably isn't too interesting right now, so here's what it's supposed to look like (but won't) once I'm done with it.
