Follow Up on Thoughts on Gunpla: June 2011
Posted by Tom on June 23, 2011
So apparently, there were more stuff shown in the hobby magazines then I thought… Oh well, starting off we have a better looking picture of the MG 00 Gundam Seven Sword/G. Shown is the GN Sword II Blaster, which was omitted from the last early scans. Oh man this kit looks great. The added knee armor makes this 00 Gundam look more eye pleasing then the 00 Raiser.
I still think that if the upper torso’s size was tweaked just a liiiittle bit, this Gundam would look awesome. Coming out in September, I have two MGs to look forward now. Priced at 5500 yen or about 70 USD… -__- (Curse you US Congress!!!!)
The second MG I’m looking forward to get is the MG Delta Plus. I really hope the final product has this shade of blue compare to the HG Delta Plus.
Transformation is like any other Zetas I’ve seen. Hopefully, it’ll be pretty solid. MG Delta Plus comes out in August for 4725 yen.
HG Master Gundam looks pretty nice. Not so nice parts? The nub marks (they’re pretty much just sticking out like a sore eye) and no yellow parts for the wing/cloak parts… For a 2730 yen kit, I sorta expected more. Then again the horse sorta makes up for it. XD
HG Shining Gundam isn’t looking too bad either. Gone are the oversize leg and arm pieces, now it sleek look to it. It does look a little skinny for me, but it’s a HG so go figure. Again, it looks like some painting applications will be needed. August release for 1575 yen.
Also shown is the HG Nobel Gundam Berserker Mode. If I ever get this kit, I’m getting rid of the Trans-Am colors. XD September release for 1575 yen.
This isn’t really a Gunpla kit, but it’s still worth to talk about. This is the G.F.F Metal Composite of the RX-78-2 Gundam [The Origin]. Pretty much, this is the RX-78 that was in The Origin manga, and no doubt this is the version that will be shown if The Origin ever gets animated. So far, I like the design of it except for the Core Fighter, it just doesn’t look cool ^^;. Again, we’ll be knowing more information come Friday. Also I’ve been thinking, wouldn’t “Gundam Origin” sound a bit more better then “Gundam The Origin?” That’s just me though.
As usual, all info and pics from Gundam Guy.
