Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.35

A very quiet week we’d have this time

Hello and welcome back to our 35th edition of Let’s Talk Gunpla. we were expecting to have a quieter week but surprisingly there is one additional announcement from the Bandai retail on top of the official opening of the pre-order for the Deep Striker.

I really didn’t expect to see bandai to be announcing another kit actually after making one that is so huge. Especially an announcement for…..

RG 1/144RX-0 Unicorn Gundam (bande dessinee Version)

Looking more glorious then normal

This…..

Yes, another Unicorn Gundam Variant of RG kit. Wow, I think it’s not long ago we had the MG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee announced and as well not to mention the RG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee is coming and released at the same time as this. Really makes me wonder what the heck Bandai is thinking, honestly.

One things for sure thata they are really going all out with the Unicorn releases this year.

You might be thinking to yourself why is this necessary? Truthfully, we don’t know either. Though its good we are getting more RG kits, we were hoping they would announce something different before announcing this one up. Though from the looks from the stills we’ve seen it doesn’t look any different than the standard version of the RG Unicorn Gundam.

Why is this needed? Maybe because of the shield? Maybe?

But what differs this kit then the rest of the RG Unicorn kits is definitely the attachment Armed Armour shield system. God that thing looks really awesome, it does manage to make the plain shield look more awesome than before. Looking at this does make us wonder how much different the manga series is as compared to the anime version.

Bandai managed to pique our interest in possibly picking up the manga, though after looking at this it makes me wonder why is this necessary? Having the shield attachments sold as its separate thing is good enough for us to make the upgrade but I don’t understand the need to have a whole release based on this variant. We are interested, but not that interested in getting something that doesn’t offer more than the RG Banshee.

The only thing that is new for this version, you might as well add this in as an option part.

Regardless, we are looking forward to more RG releases but not the same things over and over again. Please, Bandai does give us something really exciting this time more OYW RG please we want more RG OYW releases.

With that ends our 35th episode of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. What do you guys think of the announcement? This is a pretty quiet week indeed for the gunpla announcements and the one that we do cover this time is one that is quite disappointing. Not the most impressive RG kit announcement but we are still looking forward to more RG announcements! Anyways, do let us know your thoughts on This kit here!

  1. The Unicorn is a limited release, it’s a rare universally premium kit, I assume it was made to not only get a few extra bucks, but also to test premium services in other countries.
