Hello and a very good day to all our readers. Hazim here back again with another unboxing and first impressions, did ya miss me? Ha ha! It been awhile since I have written anything back when I first did a review for the HG 1/144 Atlas Gundam I figured why not do another HG review and since we have been hearing a lot about the RGMGM-79 GM/GM I thought to myself, why not?
Now why I decided to pick up the GM/GM?
Well, truth to be told, I have been wanting to build a GM kit for quite a while but have not gotten any, I have been interested by a lot of the GM kits and all the GM relatives such as the Jegan and the Rezel, but never have had the chance to do so. Thanks to this blog I finally had a chance to pick one up, and honestly this is really my very first GM kit that I have gotten so far.
Why the interest in GM kits? Oh, just because all the Grunt units in the Gundam series is all awesome AF, don’t we all love some awesome Grunt units?
So without wasting more time, let’s first talk about the box! As you can see from the front the box art you will see 3 GM/GM’s each with a different head and all looking cool looking and hardworking suits.
It is a very typical look for the HG series, where the visuals looked anime-ish, but highlighting 3 variants here made me think that bandai is telling me that there will be 3 kits, but from the looks of it. I don’t think that would be possible when you look at how thin the box is….haha.
Its even more obvious when you open up the box and see the runners
Yup you obviously can’t make 3 kits with that amount of runners.
Anyways back to the runners, it seems to be same deal here as how it was with the atlas I built previously, the parts for the GM/GM look very detailed. Its strange to see a HG kit of this year getting more and more detailed, I would even say some of the parts reminds me of what I see on the MG counterparts. Impressive. Though as I were going through the parts I did find some issues with my shield part, there seems to have been a bent or scratch issues a bit, I’m not really sure why? But all and all I don’t think this is like a big issue but it something that I find a tiny bit annoying.
All and all the runner parts looks awesome overall, I love the detail that you get here and as well the overall colour and the plastic quality. Bandai have really made something of a work of art with this one, and it really made me look forward in getting to work on this.
And now finally let’s talk about the manual, at the start you will see the same artwork like the one you see at the boxart but in a much smaller scale of course. Though the meat of this manual is seen when you open up the manual you will see a very gloriously coloured middle page. Oh my god, dat details! Though it is common for the HGBF kits to have this, but this is probably one that I have enjoyed reading thus far! And look at them poses that this kit could do! Ha-ha. Also, I do find that the manual to be very easy to understand, this is a definite plus point for beginners. Oh yeah not to mention, that there is some decent English translations here in the manual so that’s another BIG plus point, ha-ha.
I could say at this point of time that I am really psyched to get to work on this kit, there is really lots of things here that made me quite excited on seeing more of and hopefully one that would be a blast to make.
God I am looking forward to this!
