Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.11

Back to our normal services

Hello and a very good day to our fellow readers! We do hope you guys had an awesome start to your week! As we take a break from building our kits, we noticed that there were a few announcements by Bandai that looks sweet as hell. Though there isn’t much announced for this round, but we must say all of it looks sweet as hell.

They even had a transforming Gundam too, that shit is dope as hell yo!.

Oh, and the Chinagguy is out this week, so fuck yeah, we are so getting it.

Just you wait oh my dear sweet Chinagg……..oh damn, let’s just get into the announcements, shall we?

Gundam Local Type – Gundam the Origins MSD (North American Front) (HG)

Gundam Local Type – Gundam the Origins MSD (North American Front) (HG)

Release Date: 2017/10

Estimated price: JPY 1,700* (MYR 65.93* / USD $15.38*)

*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation.

Damn sexy beast you

When we heard of this being announced last week we thought this would be released as another P-Bandai kit (Since they did that with the Gundiver kit) but we were glad to know that it would be released as a traditional release instead (thank heavens for that) and you know what? This kit looks awesome! Though Bandai hasn’t yet released the RX-78-02 Origins ver. for the HG line, but after seeing this kit we do think that time might not be that far off.

We might be seeing it sooner than we thought. Maybe next year?

The kit itself is based on the one that was released; the RX-78-01 [N] Gundam Local Type (released in early July 2016) but with a significant difference the color and the Backpack unit that it was equipped with. Colour wise it does make the Gundam look more militaristic than most of its counter parts, though looking at it does remind me of the Gundam Real Type color that they released last year for the HG kit (P-Bandai Exclusive of course).

The color is pretty similar to this.

In the color department its legit as hell there.

As the backpack, this is what makes us feel like they are teasing us with the eventual release of the RX-78-02 Gundam – The Origins Ver is the backpack unit. This backpack unit really is resembling what we get with the MG kit before, though, for this one, it was given more Vernier’s than the 02-unit (Origins ver.) though we still feel it does look similar. Though for this version they don’t enable it to just mount the cannon unit as well it allows it to mount the shield and the 100mm machine gun on the backpack unit.

Dem Verniers, cannons and dem backpack

Overall this is looking pretty good, we are quite stoked for the eventual release of this kit in October! 😀

Gundam Lightning Black Warrior (HGBF)

Gundam Lightning Black Warrior (HGBF)

Release Date: 2017/09

Estimated price: JPY 1,530* (MYR 59.33* / USD $13.84*)

*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation.

The weapons system of this awesome kit

 The Gundam Red Warrior was a kit that we really adore, it looked awesome and to see another variation of this kit it was really a surprise! The Gundam Lightning Black Warrior not just have an awesome name and color to its name. It as well had a pretty awesome weapon system on it.

As for how the Red warrior is, the equipment list is the same as what you are getting on the Red warrior but with a significant difference the awesome big and long ass gun. The party piece of the Lightning Black Warrior is just… well, look at it.

is that a long ass gun or are you just happy to see me?

I don’t know why, but Gundam Build Fighters have a lot of very good-looking kits. There are so many kits from this series that I really want to get (Especially the MS Girl kits) and they have brought us awesome builds as well.

Dayum that is one long gun

I do feel because of this series, Bandai is really letting the designers go crazy with the designs of the Mobile Suits.

Speaking of crazy builds: –

Reversible Gundam (HGBF)

Reversible Gundam (HGBF)

Release Date: 2017/10

Estimated price: JPY 1,530* (MYR 59.33* / USD $13.84*)

*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation.

Fucking awesome pose there

When we saw this, we wondered why the hilarious name. Why the fuck did they give this awesome looking kit a stupid name.

Then it transformed and minds were blown. The word what the flying fuck was muttered when we saw this gloriously ugly transformed Gundam in its full glory. In full honesty though, we would still get it (well maybe only Kimi that would get that shit). Our reason for getting this one? Oh, that’s a very easy answer, because it is a ridiculous kit.

Well now look at this ridiculousness

It’s so ridiculous that we would get it, plus the un transformed form looks awesome. Though from the looks of the kit, it is based from the Reborns Gundam (as well had a pretty ridiculous form transformed but I am glad they turned up the notch on this one too) a definite must buy for us all.

The more ridiculous the kit the better in our eyes. HAHA!

And finally: –

Ballostic Weapons (HGBC)

Ballostic Weapons (HGBC)

Release Date: 2017/10

Estimated price: JPY 510* (MYR 19.84* / USD $4.40*)

*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation.

*mounted on the MS-06S Zaku II Origins version (Char Aznable custom)

Since my last review of the System Weapons from the builder’s parts series, I realized that I really haven’t really covered much of these awesome kit extensions. I do find it good that bandai is taking cues from kotobukiya on this. Making kit extensions to expand and give the builders/creators more flexibility on their building options.

*mounted on the MS-06S Zaku II Origins version (Char Aznable custom)

We are not keen of these uncoloured kits, though we do understand the reason behind this, so no one weapons are the same. But we do have to give it to Bandai, these things look awesome as hell, even in its uncoloured form.

*mounted on the MS-06S Zaku II Origins version (Char Aznable custom)

Plus, the look when you actually mount and equip the weapon system on ANY HG kits that would really make the kit stand out. Though you do need to go an extra mile for that though (painting and stuff), regardless of the efforts taken I do think it’s worth the effort given indeed.

Though it does makes us wonder why Bandai stop on making more of the ever-awesome System weapons series though, the last time we get these awesome little things is in August 2015. We do think there is a lot more weapons in gundam series that Bandai can make to continue this awesome series.

We do want Bandai to keep making more of these awesome things, we really want to build a small Gundam Weapons armory here.

Then again, we just have to make do with these. At least they are as well quite awesome.

So, with this, concludes this edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla vol.11! We have given our thoughts and opinions of the announced kits, what do you guys think of the announcements? Are you guys as stoked as we are? Though there are no MG kits announced, we are still quite happy with the announced kits.

Though we still have a long year to go, and there is just so many kits that we are really looking forward to getting soon! We are going to be so broke by the end of this year, but we are going to be a happy broke bunch indeed.

Btw we are going to get our chinagguy now, so hopefully, we can do a review on that soon enough! For now, however, back to Force Impulse Gundam (HG) do look forward to that review this Sunday! We’ll see you again soon, as ever you can give your thoughts and your piece here in the comment section and as well leave a like if you enjoy this article!

  1. The Local Type NA Colors and the Reversible are the ones here i’m really excited about, Local Type NA Colors just looks amazing, I love the colorscheme, guns, and the orange decals, am very hyped for it. Honestly I had no real issue with the Reversible’s name myself, but idk how I feel about the transformation, love the base design though.

    I love the Red Warrior, but Lightning Black just seems kinda odd, It looks *too* black, and it doesn’t really offer a whole lot in the end. Can’t say i’m all for it.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. To be honest from the list that we made, I personally am excited for the Local Type Gundam. It really looked good, and (in my opinion) the best looking HG origins kit so far.

      I do feel the same on the transformation part tbh, it looked like………………..well lets just see how that one goes. Hahaha….

      In terms for the lightning black, I really feel it’s for those that might not like (though this might be highly unlikely) the red warrior and prefer their red warrior to be an emo version of it. maybe.

      Though i do feel the announcement line for this one is quite solid.
