A small WIP and some future product from bandai

Posted by Tom on May 24, 2013



I know I haven’t done any post in a while, but I’ve been enjoying my summer. Watch some good movies lately and hang out with friends before summer class starts haha. Anyways, I finished snapping together the HG God Gundam a while back but didn’t do anything due to fun and unpredictable weather (always rains when I wanna do some painting!)

Current Gunpla Projects

Posted by Tom on May 15, 2013


School is done, and what have I done? Finished building the MG AGE-2 and currently building the HG God Gundam. My ReZEL project is on hold until the clear parts I ordered arrived. Plan for AGE-2 and God Gundam is an out of box review and then custom paint them. Not sure what I’ll do with the AGE-2. For the God Gundam, I’m just going to do a hyper mode scheme. Not original I know, but this will give me an excuse to use my gold paints ^^;.

I’ll do a separate post about the Shizouka Hobby Show, but as of this post, the announcements I’m seeing are really underwhelming for me…

So… Master Grade version 3.0s

Posted by Tom on May 14, 2013

So the big announcement that was rumored about a week ago is the MG 3.0. I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. On one hand, this might be the new standard that master grades will have in terms of articulation and design. On the other, there are so many old MGs that haven’t even gotten the 2.0 treatment (MG Alex, GP-01, Double Zeta, etc) that skipping to 3.0 seems kinda wrong. So far there’s only a CAD of the RX-78-2 and all I’m seeing so far is a 1/100 scale Real Grade with the new hands from MG Nu Gundam ver Ka. I think it’s too early for Bandai to be doing a “3.0” of their kits considering the fact that the newer MGs are still very well articulated and that the older kits that haven’t even gotten a 2.0 yet are now once again left in the dust.

What do you guys think? I know I’m not the only one with this opinion. 3.0 is too early to do now since we haven’t even done 2.0 of earlier Master Grades. And if this is the style that the new 3.0s are taking in terms of the MGs looking like RGs, than what was the point of the Real Grade line. Maybe my opinions will change come Shizouka, but for now, it seems all I’m seeing is more sliding armor gimmicks, which we have seen in older kits before too…
