Sunday Movie Theater: Rouge 胭脂扣 (1988)

Heartbreakingly beautiful

A break from the regular review series to have a visit to the July edition of Sunday Movie Theater. ^^

Movie poster is from IMDB.

A ghost story this time, but one that involves very little horror like "Outpost" (2008). Instead, it's more of a tragic romance story with the supernatural as a minor storytelling device. ^^

S.H. Figuarts Garo Part 1

Shiny, but not that shiny

From a fierce-looking Zoids plamo kit to a fierce-looking action figure this time. ^^

As with all of my reviews nowadays, this is also something in my collection that seems to have been neglected after its purchase. ^^; This S.H. Figuarts Garo for example, has been sitting somewhere in my room for more than three years now, after I got it in July 2011.

Doing long-overdue reviews has very much become the norm on my blog, so much so it's now meaningless to be pointed out I think. ^^;

Still, overdue reviews are never a problem for me, since the awesomeness of those collectibles remained unchanged between the moment I purchased them, and when I finally decide to unpack them out for review. ^^

HMM Zoids 1/72 Red Horn Part 8

Invisible vents and fake beam cannons

Continuing with the work on Kotobukiya's HMM Zoids 1/72 Red Horn after the previous posting: ^^

(Left) Forgot to add these two large vent parts from the backpack to the paint work in Part 5.
(Right) The image in the instructional manual seems to indicate that the vents should be painted gray.

HMM Zoids 1/72 Red Horn Part 7

Different paints, different panel liners, different foil stickers

Already up to Part 7 so far, Kotobukiya's HMM Zoids 1/72 Red Horn has become the plamo kit with the most work needed for me this year, surpassing Real Grade Gundam RX-78-2 and another Kotobukiya kit, SRW OG 1/144 scale ART-1, each with six postings on their painting and detailing. ^^

And the work on this HMM Zoids kit is not ending anytime soon. ^^

Continuing with the paint work on the various pipes, here are the parts that need to be painted silver.

HMM Zoids 1/72 Red Horn Part 6

Not hydraulic pipes? No matter, all the pipes still need to be shiny

Continuing with the painting and detailing on Kotobukiya's HMM Zoids 1/72 Red Horn after the previous posting: ^^

Another round of gray paint work on various maroon parts not done in the previous posting, with the tail parts being the focus this time but with additional body parts added as well.
