Hello and welcome back to our blog! Kimi here and I’m back with a new Unboxing and First impressions of the MG RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom! Oh, how I miss you guys! It is really good to be back writing and reviewing a kit XD! To those that followed me on my Instagram, you guys probably have known that this kit would be next on the line, however to those that didn’t, I’ll give you a short end of it; I bought two GM’s one P-Bandai and the newly released GM Sniper Custom recently and couldn’t make up my mind on which one to start off first. So I started a poll in Insta and the poll decided that I should do an unboxing and review for this one.
So that’s why this is being Unboxed today, haha and don’t worry the P-Bandai GM will be next on the list and I will be sure to Unbox and review that one as well.
Though it’s not to say that I’m not excited to Unbox this one, to be honest. I was looking forward to this since it was first announced back in September this year! Besides the ZZ Gundam this is as well one that I’m excited for and to start the boxart for the GM Sniper Custom is enough to make me really excited about seeing this in IRL already. Just look at this! They opt for a cleaner and laid back scene for it and if you were to look at the box really closely, you’ll see that there are a lot of throwbacks to the old MSV kit box art here and there. I wouldn’t want to spoil that to you, so I’ll leave it to you guys to find that out! Haha. We do think that the artwork made by Kinoshita Tomotake-sensei is even better than the one I saw on the MG RGM-79SP GM Sniper II.
Moving on, as I opened the box the first thing that greeted me was a sea of green and white, and I want to start by saying that the green wasn’t as nice as I thought it would be. When I went through the box and the promotional pictures I was under the impression that though it sports a light green look I thought that it would be slightly darker, it wasn’t the case when I open the box and opened the package. Thankfully, however, the white parts do look good. Though the overall quality is quite decent though at some of the gates do find some of them to be quite fragile but overall the parts were made well and there are no immediate issues with them, don’t think that we would have much of fitting issues here.
Besides the green color issues, this is looking to be quite ok. Disappointed a bit yes, but overall ok.
Finally, we get to the meat of every unboxing; the manual. I would say that the manual for this particular MG is not much different it is still very easy to understand even without having it translated, but as ever we do need to actually build the kit to really know if the manual is easier or roughly the same level as the GM Sniper II’s. So will need to come back to that again when we review this kit.
As well the English translation is as good as ever, the lore is still a joy to go through and as I was going through the manual I really hope that they plan for an MG Guncannon and its variants. With the recent revival of the GM from War in The Pocket series, I wouldn’t be surprised if we would see the Guncannon Mass Production Type turned into an MG. Oh yes, to see that would really be something indeed.
Overall, this has been a fairly standard unboxing. Nothing made me quite excited about for this one, but it is one that I really hope would change as I were to get into the building this. This really baffles me and I really hate this feeling because I do love the overall design of the kit and its equipment’s, but I can’t help to feel quite underwhelmed by this kit. Maybe I was having high hopes of it after coming off building the ZZ Gundam Ver.K.A and yes I know that its unfair for me to expect so much from this cheap MG kit but honestly? I was more excited to build this one and unbox this then the ZZ Gundam Ver.K.A.
Then again, the contents might be better than the cover. So maybe it’ll be as good as soon as I get into it. I really hope this one is good because even if it’s not a good kit to unbox at the end of the year at least it’ll be a good kit to review at the start of the year. Definitely, something that I would be looking forward to, a positive start.
With that, ends our unboxing and First Impressions of the MG RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom, as well being the last post of 2017. What do you guys think of the Unboxing of this kit?
