Hello, Kimi here and I’m back with a new Unboxing and First impressions of MG 1/100 RGM-79G GM Command. After taking a shot brief rest with building the HGBF’s Hyper Gyanko last week, this week I’m back once again building MG kits, however, this time instead of taking huge projects like the MG Sazabi Ver.K.A, this time I figured it’ll be better for me to be taking on a smaller MG project instead and as well I thought about why not take on the newest MG kit the Retail side had to offer.

In my mind, I was seriously thinking of building a GM kit this round and what better kit to take on this week than the first 2018 MG release, the MG GM Command (Colony Type) and already, this kit starts off quite well with that awesome box-art. Why? Why not you just take a look at it.

Beautiful ain’t it?

Really, this is by far one of the most picturesque box arts yet, the more I look at this Box art the more I am drawn to the art and to the kit. Honestly, I feel nowadays Bandai is just getting really good at making people really interested with their every release. Looking at how good this box is illustrated, I wouldn’t be surprised if people bought this kit just because they were drawn to just the box art. Its just that good.

Good job here Bandai.

As well the same can be said as I open the box, the parts here do look hella impressive! I love how detailed some of the parts were, the colors on the parts here is aswell is quite impressive, though I can’t say much on how accurate it would be completed but by the way the parts looked so far, it does look quite promising. You do get a set of transparent stickers and normal foil stickers. The transparent stickers are really my fav here, its simple nature does appeal to me more here but to be honest am not so much a fan of the foil stickers…actually I am never a fan of those. Though it is useful for those thinking of not painting the unpainted parts.

Since this kit is based on the GM Sniper II MG kit, I do find that there is a lot of parts from that kit that could be found here (there is aswell indications that some of the runner parts from the kit are used here), this is quite obvious on some outer armor parts, weapons and shield and some of the inner frame parts as well, but there are some new parts being made especially for the GM Command that can be seen here.

Hmm, tidy
I do like the fact there is less red here this time

The colour and the details here is quite impressive
Even the inner frame parts looks quite detailed
Oh you are new?
Well not all of you are
Simple and a no BS waterslide decals
hmmm….here is some stickers?

Looking at how most of the runner parts is so far, I can imagine building this kit would feel much less the same. However, it doesn’t stop me from feeling quite excited about getting myself into this, since I did have fun with the previous MG GM Sniper II.

Now finally we get to the meat of all our unboxing, the manual. I was really looking forward to reading more on the lore of this kit the only thing that I was looking forward to every recent retail release’s and lo behold Bandai didn’t disappoint at all on that. The manual is English translated, though there are some parts of the translation here in which you would find quite questionable, but overall, the manual is decently translated. To me to be able to learn more about the lore of this kit is always a joy to behold.

I always appreciate the effort Bandai puts in there, I do hope that they would keep on making more translated manuals in the future.

More of the Boxart here on the manual
Some of the lore on the development of this MS aka some English translated goodness
MORE English translated goodness!
You’d see much less the same instructions here, like the one found on the GM Sniper II.
I do hope that I would be able to make it look just like that, hopefully.

So far I could say that this kit seems to be, looking promising but it is one that is looking to be much less the same as the previous GM Sniper II, however I don’t mean it in a bad way since the GM Sniper II was still quite a fun and simple MG kit to assemble. However, even with that being said, there is a possibility that this might take the route of the P-Bandai GM II, I really hope that wouldn’t be the case here.

With what I’ve experienced here so far, it would be surprising if it sucked ass.

With that ends my Unboxing and First Impressions of the MG 1/100 RGM-79G GM Command. It does look quite a good cheap MG kit to get into, not to mention as well the awesome looking boxart!
