Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.41

continuing from where we left out

Hello and welcome back to our latest segment of the Let’s Talk Gunpla! Now in our 41st volume, we will be coming back to the retail announcements for the Gundam Build Divers of last week! Since there is so much to cover, we would be finishing it up by this week so we can start talking about the P-Bandai stuff and P-Bandai seems to have alot of interesting things they announced recently…..

Though we are still anxiously awaiting the new episodes of the Gundam Build Divers to be out still since they did leave us with a pretty action-packed Prologue it does makes us wonder if there would be an original Gundam Mainline series being planned out, to have another Gundam series that is as good as the Iron Blooded-Orphans is something that we really look forward in getting.

Well, with the year is still young, we shall see if any new Gundam anime is planned out. Regardless, any new Gundam anime is always a good thing, well I really hope it is not one that as confusing as Reconguista in G, hopefully…Anyways, lets us get back to the real discussion, and talk about the rest of the upcoming Gundam Build Divers HG kits! 😀

HG 1/144 GM III Beam Master (HGBD)

HG 1/144 GM III Beam Master (HGBD)

Release Date: 2018/04

Estimated price: JPY 1,530* (MYR RM56.04* / USD $14.39*)

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

The best looking GM variant to date.

We love the original GM III, and it is one that we really thought it is already one that is a looker. The GM III beam master, however, is one that really takes the look of the GM and turns it into something better.

You really don’t just get looks, you as well get a kit with new molds on the leg section, you get these awesome looking waist sword things and the original waist javelin missiles placed on the leg section, replacing the leg verniers. Not to mention here as well you get some mean looking head and one that is, in my opinion, the best-looking GM head yet and one that looks strangely familiar. Honestly, we are really am having a hard time finding out which GM variants is this head belongs to or if it really is an original design.

It really is something that we are struggling to find out at the moment.

cool pose, but unfortunately it doesn’t have a cool color though

All of that is fine and dandy, but really the best thing about this kit is really is that Gatling beam machine Gun thingy. Wait we believe that it does a proper name for it, let us see……Oh, this is called the Changeling Rifle……..right.

Anyways it is still one cool looking rifle (despite the name of course) and it is one that really made the GM III Beam Master one of the best-looking and unique GM variant to date. Though, we can’t say that we love that color scheme. We really can’t help to think of oranges when every time we look at this GM, really not the best of the color scheme that they chose for this kit.

Regardless, this is one that we are quite excited about seeing more of and from what we are seeing so far with this kit? It does look quite promising indeed.

HG 1/144 Ogre GN-X (HGBD)

HG 1/144 Ogre GN-X (HGBD)

Release Date: 2018/05

Estimated price: JPY 1,700* (MYR RM61.80* / USD $15.86*)

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

The best Shrek impersonator here

What happens when you marry some parts of the AGE Gundam 1 Titus to a GN-X? Oh, Easy.

You’ll get the Ogre GN-X. The beautiful Ogre GN-X

By far one of the most impressive announcements out of the lot, we LOVED how the Ogre looked. Honestly, we never thought of using the AGE Titus’s parts to be incorporated into anything, not to mention to make them look awesome as hell like this, because the Titus is really one that……one realy struggles to find them appealling.

I don’t remember Shrek having big ass swords though

We noticed here that the Ogre is given a much thicker leg unit and arm unit then its other GN-X variant as well it is given a dual blade configuration instead of a beam weapon altogether, though all of those is really dwarfed by the look and the color of the kit.

Really, have you looked at anything that wonderful? Though when we look at the color scheme we can’t help to think of the Exia Dark Matter, as well if we are not mistaken shares the same Colour Scheme…..I wonder if this two is related in some way….

or even him being red…….

Well, it is one that we shall find out as soon as the anime is officially out and when the kit itself is officially out, ha-ha. This is definitely one to watch indeed.

HG 1/144 Seravee Gundam Scheherazade (HGBD)

HG 1/144 Seravee Gundam Scheherazade (HGBD)

Release Date: 2018/05

Estimated price: JPY 1,870* (MYR RM67.97* / USD $17.45*)

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

It looks like it could carry small Exia’s and Dyanames.

Finally, we get to the last kit on the recent retail announcement, this is definitely one that has one of the longest names, and one of the most interesting names out there. Since they are taking a name of a character/storyteller from the Arabian nights, will this MS belong to the storyteller of the show? or would this be playing a different role all together?

It is one that we’re most curious about knowing but regardless we do have to wait till the anime comes out to really confirm all of these things.

Just look at all of that awesome types of equipment it comes with

When we first look at the HGBD Seravee Gundam Scheherazade, we thought to our selves at first, what makes this different than the normal Seravee? Then we saw its back and immediately saw the difference.

No big Gundam head behind it and as soon as we all saw that, we instantly approved of this kit.

See, no silly Gundam face at his back

Yes, all of us here really find the Seraphim ‘backpack’ is a joke to the overall awesome look of the Original Seraphim, and the absence of that is really not missed. Glad they give this a more conventional looking backpack for this…..well that is only when we give this a closer inspection, only then we realize that the ‘conventional’ backpack doesn’t look all that ‘conventional’

This Seravee had the Ptolemaios as its backpack…..well at least it’s not another Gundam head. Well no matter how ridiculous the backpack is, we have to admit that it does fit well with the overall look of the kit here, and the color scheme is awesome too! Though we are quite torn with that beam rifle though. The original had a much more awesome looking beam rifle as compared to this. Oh well, one can always swap the weapons around if we wish it to be.

Though less silly, it is not lacking in sheer awesomeness

Regardless, the HGBD Seravee Gundam Scheherazade is another brilliant looking MS from a by now already full of beautiful, handsome looking MS’s in an anime series (that isn’t even officially launched yet) Gundam Build Divers anime. Really the more we go through the retail announcements the more we felt that we are going to see more awesome releases by this anime, and really it already made us feel super hyped up now.

At this point of time, I really feel Bandai is banking on this series making it and with the kind of promotion they are giving this, it is looking like they are quite successful in making us look forward to the anime.

So it really would suck if the anime turns out to be shit. Oh well, lets really hope that its not going to be the case.

With that ends our 41st episode of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. What do you guys think of the Retail announcements? Is there anything that catches your fancy? Finally, being able to finish talking about all of them is really a blessing in disguise, because we are getting some awesome P-Bandai news and we are looking forward on talking about them next week…huhuhuhu.
