When I built the Santa Gundam, I thought that would be the end of it. It was a quirky, fun little experiment; a diversion from more serious pursuits. However, like so many things, it didn’t just stay at that. I began to wonder: “If I have a Santa Gundam, what other kinds of Christmas Mobile Suits could I make?”

Now, you probably realize that it’s a bad idea for me to start talking to myself, or asking myself questions. This situation was no different. However, the answer was not obvious. I didn’t have anything that looked like a Snowman, a Yeti or an Elf… so I was at a loss. However, Peter, a friend of mine at IPMS London , had a B’Cue he wanted to sell. Now THAT had possibilities!

A B’Cue is a quadrupedal mobile suit from the Gundam Seed anime. The B’Cue is, in fact, one of the ONLY quadrupedal MS designs period, which makes it uniquely well suited to this project. I mean, what could be more natural than Santa having a reindeer at his side?  While the Santa Gundam is from the UC continuity, I really didn’t think there would be much of a problem putting the two of them together.

The B’Cue is typical of a 1/144 HG Seed kit. It is relatively simple, but very well laid out and, for the most part, easy to put together. There are some differences in the B’Cue, however, that make it a bit more interesting that its bipedal brethren.  The first is that each leg is also a tread unit. The B’Cue has a “tank” mode that is designed to give it faster mobility on flat ground. The MS squats down (like a sleeping dog) and drives on tank tracks that are on the back of its legs.

The other interesting part of the B’Cue is the neck. It is made of several separate segments, not unlike a spinal column. To hold these together, there is a loop of wire that runs up one side and down the other. This provides stiffness and flexibility all at once. The neck won’t take repeated bending, but it will hold itself in place and allow you to position it and still hold its shape. This is an amazing idea and I was astounded how well it worked!

The biggest problem with the B’Cue is that it has wings. “No, that’s fine!” you say. “Santa’s reindeer fly, so this only makes sense!” To that I say “Bah Humbug!” Reindeer, even Santa’s, don’t have wings.  Thus, I had to find a way to remove the wings without compromising the entire structure of the kit. Thankfully, the wings only bolt onto the body in two slots. All I had to do to cover that up was insert a piece of sheet styrene. I faired this in with a little CA, and you’d never even know there were supposed to be wings! The wings normally are found at the very back of the MS’s front half, if you’re wondering!

Back in the early days of model kits, especially when plastic models were just coming around to being extremely popular, almost any subject was a possible candidate for a model. No matter how unusual.

Aurora and Lindberg probably did this the most. But other model companies did too at times. It was all about risk, and the competition was heating up as to which model company could get the sale at the hobby store or dime store counter.

It wasn't easy to figure out what kind of models kids and hobbyists wanted, so all you could do was make a wide variety of different kits, and hope something would stick. You just never knew when a particular kind of model series would take off.

Auroroa did a lot of TV and movie Science Fiction subjects. Spaceships of all kinds. But they also made various car models, such as a hot rod from the Archies comic book series, to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Aurora did figures of famous Boxers, JF Kennedy, and Alfred E Newman. They did obscure aircraft, several ships, and wacky models of all kinds. They ventured into super heros with Batman and Superman, the Lone Ranger and Tonto.

Aifix made models of birds, figures like Anne Boyleyn and Oliver Cromwell, even railroad cars.

With Metal Earth 3D Model Kits, you can create realistic miniature models from the greatest sci-fi trilogy of all cinema.

Each kit starts out as two completely flat metal sheets which have been laser-cut and laser-etched. Simply pop out the pieces and connect them using tabs and holes.

Star Wars Metal Earth models are miniature in size only. The detail (thanks, lasers!) allows each model to take on a life of its own. They're truly spectacular!

However, we have found that a pair of pliers or tweezers can make precise assemblies a tad easier. In our experience, it'll take you a few hours to complete each model.

Take a gander at those beauts below! It's okay — you can go ahead and write home about these amazing museum quality models.

Star Wars Metal Earth models are currently available in four styles: Darth's TIE Fighter, Artoo, the Millennium Falcon, and the AT-AT.
