Super talented designer GP Solo sent me this amazing mecha model to celebrate Mecha Samurai Empire and I’m still blown away by how awesome it is. I waited all week for this and when I received it, I was so excited. As a kid, I used to want all the mecha toys and to get to hold one from a world I wrote about is a dream come true. And the detail. The details from the grooves to the way everything is connected is super helpful for me as I imagine these mechas in full blown conflict.
On top of that, the package it came in was super sleek and awesome and felt like an actual toy. As I joked online, Christmas came early this year and it was such a special feeling.

On top of that, GP Solo-san was also generous enough to send me my first ever Super Famicom game, complete with manual and all the little sheets. I do have SNES games, but no Super Famicom, so it was great to see!
