Probably the what, 4th version of the Charub I've done? After watching the incredibly sexy opening battle of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin, I wanted to revamp the Charub to focus more on its Zaku roots and less on the version from GBF. The shield mounted on the subarm is super simple, and a design I will have to remember for later. I probably went a little overboard with the skirt armor, likely will trim it down later.

Finally, the big addition is the new boosterpack, a design created by Jude Vincent Desales of the Brick Mecha Division facebook page. The second I saw this design I knew I wanted to try it out, and with a little wiggle room (using a double sided megablok plate) I was able to mount it.This marks the first version of the Chub style power-plant being reposition to the bottom half of the backplate to allow room for the boosters, a move that I'm kicking myself for not thinking of before with other designs.

Have a few designs today, so bare with me. Starting things off is the Chubdam Apollo with his new slick shield.

In hindsight I wonder if his shoulder mounted thrusters are a little too.., small? Alas, maybe one day.

Next up, based on the GM Powered Cardigan from Gundam Build Fighters Try, is the Chubdam Powered.

Chubdam Powered is something I've wanted to do for a long while now, and one thats been suggested on several occasions by others. Its nice to finally have it bricked up. I think the new knee guard design continues to look great, and I mourn my tiny set of the 1x1 plate with handle I have left.

Finally, we have a bit of a free style Chubdam, the Wilde Jagd, that nevertheless draws inspiration from a few different sources.

This lil guy started out with me wanting to try something a little more original with my Chubdam design. I always liked the color scheme from the Blast Impulse Gundam, and that was like only real thought going in. The half kite shield style skirt armor might eventually jump over to Chubdam Styx (Deathscythe) where I think it could fit in better. The shoulders went through several reworks before I settled on this design. If you follow the Chubdam line, you've probably noticed I've been experimenting with them a bit lately, getting away from the influence bases. The wetwork style sensor head was influenced by the GM Sniper, and I suspect a copy will find it's way to a Chubdam Sniper sometime in the near future. The beam trident is something I've been working on forever, ever since the nameless GM III used one to great effect in Gundam Unicorn. I finally found a way to make it work, but I do wish I had different beam colors to work with. Here's hoping the bar claws get new trans colors!

Hydromancer, may I ask a favor of you please? Since you are the obvious master of the Chubdams, may I get your input of my first Chubdam build?

Its not based off any exsiting Gundam I'm aware of, but I would like your opinion on how to make it better because as it stands right now, it feels a little bland, or maybe that's just my current feelings about it. I am open to all suggestions, ideas, and critisms you feel the need to impart, (if any).

I thank you in advance.

Again, I thank you in advance for any and all wisdom you share.

It could just be me, but I feel like the Reinhorn is a little too white. It could also just be an issue with the limitations of Lego, honestly, but I feel like some of the detail's lost on first glance because there's not much contrast in places.

I can't imagine it would be easy, no. Such a small piece, so little margin for error. It definitely looks good though!

Hello True Believers! I know I've been quiet for a few months now, but I've continued to lurk the whole time. I had originally been working on three separate new Chubdams that just weren't working the way I wanted, and I grew frustrated enough to walk away for a while. Recently I was feeling inspired, and starting toying around with two of the half built Chubdams, repurposing them into new designs. Two of them are finished now, and I thought I'd show the first off while I tinker with the second, inspired by the Gouf Custom from 08th MS Team (really filling out the ranks from this show!).

A proper name escapes me at the time. Sure I'll come up with something eventually.

Been a bit busy, really diving into Chubdams again. Few new ones up (some of which I'm not 100% feeling just yet and need a little more work), plus some reworks that were way needed. The Chubcannon and Chubtank 2.0s in particular greatly benefited from a more attention to detail, faithful update.

Few notes to add. One, I think the Chubtank benefited the most out of the revamping. The new Ninjago Movie polybag was incredible useful, as in an admittedly uninspired hackish fashion the new tank base is the exact heart of the Ninjago drill tank. But it looks so much better than the original design! As for the Chubcannon, I really appreciated being able to add more details, fix color/parts usage, and over all get closer to the source material. Sadly I had to drop the Rumble Monkey inspired shoulders to accommodate the updated cannons, but the second gen Chubdam shoulders look great in their own way. Just... ignore the fact that the Chubcannon has second gen anything going on. The Chubdam itself receives its probably 4 or 5 update, now more heavily armed with the proper rifle design, a beam javelin, and a two shot rocket launcher. I think at this point all its missing is the hyper hammer, which I might add later as an optional armanent since I'm not sure where I would stick it. Might replace the left beam saber shoulder mount with an Origins style shoulder cannon as well. Which leads us to the fourth update, a proper Full Armor Gundam. Not much to say here, other than I need more dark green in my life. Finally, from one of the tragically worse Gundam series, comes the Chubdam Age 1 (yes my naming conventions get lazy over time, you aren't imagining things). Only such much to do to make the base model stand out from the original Chubdam, but I'll like add equipment packs for the various updates later. Which makes me think of strike packs. Hmmm.....

Age 1 is my favorite of this batch by far!

Such a lively yet elegant backpack, a miracle that you managed to built it that small, It compliments the rest of the build perfectly!

After revamping the classic Gundam trio, realized there's several other teams that could use the same updating, both adding newer Chubdam styles as well as focusing on more addition to detail. Next up on the modernization project are the White Winged Boys, aka Gundam Wing. Notably I decided to pass on revamping the Threshal Hydra (aka Altron Gundam) as it stood out from the current theme of the team, which was the original suits with a eye for the updated Glory of the Losers style.

So I created the new Chubdam Pyragosa based on the Shelong Gundam. Really happy with the dragon arm, very different from the previous design but closer to the source. Chubdam Brimstone (based on Heavyarms) got the next largest update, including finally achieving, after literal years of design failures, the chest that opens up for the vulcan cannons. Added the opening shoulder pods for missiles as well, and shortened the gatling gun to make it more wieldly. Styx, Roc, and Oliphant got more minor updates, mostly improved color choice, skirt armor, and backpacks.

Torn between starting a fresh build (Tallgeese anyone?) or moving on to revamp the Gundam OO team.

These are all really great.

Just wondering though, do you have a destroy mode for the Unicorn?
The LF-D5 "Stub" is the top of the line in agriculture frames, designed to haul heavy farm equipment. It is also easy to repair, with standardized connections between all joints. Buy one today.

Also, it's also quite cute on the battlefield....

I haven't done destroy mode yet, but I do have a supply of trans-red 1x1 plates and a few other odds and ends I've been holding onto to do such a thing. Originally I was debating where to remake the Unicorn or do destroy mode separate, but now I have enough to do both. Since you've asked about it, I'll put it much higher on my to-do-list!
