Thoughts on Gunpla: January 2011
Posted by Tom on January 27, 2011
Lots of interesting news (well not really) in the Gunpla world. But first, I want to say that I did enter in the G-Shot competition. Straight Build category, of course. Sadly, I still haven’t seen my submission on the facebook page yet, so I’m assuming they’re still processing.
First off, This is an amazing/badass boxart for the Deathscythe Hell Custom
EW. Bandai definitely went with the Batman theme. :D If boxarts can make you buy a kit, this is one of them.
The decals aren’t as flashy and cool as I thought. =/ Aw well, it still looks fine on the Gundam.
EXTREME~~ Gundam. Not sure what to say about this at the moment…
I’m digging the clear blue though. The beam guitar rifle looks very funky. You can even pose it to rock out on this guitar! XD
MG Wing Gundam ver
Ka EW. Bandai must be trolling if they think this will sell well… The only thing new is new action base connectors and slightly different colors.
The Shenlong’s beam trident means business. Still gonna wait for the Nataku to come around.
Truth be told, I don’t care much about the Jegan. Actually I can say that to a lot of Universal Century designs (the late UC suits look great though). This Jegan ECOAS Type looks cool however, and the colors are more eye pleasing then that pale green that the original Jegan came in.
Something I’ve been waiting for is a Gundam Unicorn box set. It makes it more appealing then buying separate disk. However this set comes at a whooping 17220 yen! WTF Bandai!? I don’t care if they are Blue-Ray disk, there has to be something that makes the box set more appealing at such high cost! 3 disk =/= high price. >:(
Don’t believe me, see for yourself.
I already talked about the RG Strike in an earlier post and I think that’s all I have in mind at the moment. Next post should be a WIP for Unicorn, I hope.
