Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.50!

A sensible P-Bandai Week? What?

Hello and welcome back to our 50th edition of our let’s Talk Gunpla segment! We still can’t believe that we have reached this far, making all 50 episodes of this segment. We were really surprised that we manage to get this far, all of us here felt if it’s not because of your support we might not have made it this far. So, thank you to all of you wonderful readers for supporting us here!

Anyways we are back with more news from P-Bandai. Unlike this past few weeks we are getting some interesting yet entertaining news this time, and for once we are getting announcements that aren’t something that we are pissed off to hear for once.

Well not so much this time anyway, but whatevs.

So, without further ado, lets now get to our first announcement, shall we?

MG 1/100 RX-121 Gundam TR-1 (Hazel Custom) Shield Booster Parts

MG 1/100 RX-121 Gundam TR-1 (Hazel Custom) Shield Booster Parts

Release Date: 2018/07

Estimated price: JPY 1,620* (MYR RM58.09* / USD $14.84*)

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

Looks like the Advanced Hazel but minus the head, and the weird extra arm

When we all first saw this, all of us here thought ‘Oh, will you look at that, P-Bandai just announced another Hazel Custom variant.’ We all thought that would be the case since up until this point P-Bandai keeps giving us new stuff to be disappointed about. Well, that is up until we saw the price listed and actually read the whole announcement description, to finally realize that this is only…..

An Expansion parts for the previous P-Bandai MG Gundam TR-1 (Hazel Custom) release.

Which is brilliant, since honestly, it wouldn’t make much sense of them to keep churning out the same shit over and over again (though it would make them lots of money). This time they really managed to surprise us with them only deciding to just release some extension parts instead.

For once P-Bandai is taking it easy with the MG releases.

Good job P-Bandai, well this time at least.

As we looking through at the information released here, it does seem to be that they are only releasing the shield booster parts, extra shield attachments and nothing more. Regardless of that, we have to admit it does look good when you combine both the additional shields and the kit together.

Looking at this we do feel that this, is something that one should consider getting if this comes out in July, that is if you already owned the TR-1 of course. As well to those that are thinking of getting the TR-1, this is definitely one that you have to add in with the kit.

The urge to get the MG TR-1 is intensified after looking at this.

Though we have to say that this is not the only Extension parts that P-Bandai is releasing in this coming July, we are as well will be getting the……

MG 1/100 FFX-29A G Parts [HRUDUDU]

MG 1/100 FFX-29A G Parts [HRUDUDU]
Release Date: 2018/07

Estimated price: JPY 2,376* (MYR RM85.20* / USD $21.77*)

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

With this extension parts, you make something that is already awesome to a badass mofo.

Yes, P-Bandai announced another extension parts from P-Bandai for the TR-1, but unlike the first, however, this looked more like a proper kit.

We liked the fact that it makes the TR-1 looks a lot more badass with all of these extra equipment’s attached to it and also, we do like the fact that it makes the TR-1 looks more ‘Full-Armor-ish’.

To some of you guys out there, might be thinking…..”Yes, it looks nice and all, but we don’t have the MG TR-1 yet so why should this thing interest me?”. Oh don’t you worry mate, you can just get this on its own and just put in on the action base and voila you have a cheap MG kit.

If you are wondering if you could just get this as a standalone thing.

We really think that this is one brilliant P-Bandai kit, as well might be one of the cheapest P-Bandai MG’s around too.

As well you might be thinking, “I don’t like the normal TR-1 that’s why I got the dark blue TR-1 or advanced Hazel instead and I ain’t interested with the normal TR-1 at all, why should I get this?”.

How can you not…….no never mind

Oh, don’t worry mate because P-Bandai also has that covered with……..

MG 1/100 FFX-29A G Parts [HRUDUDU] (Combat Deployment Colours)

MG 1/100 FFX-29A G Parts [HRUDUDU] (Combat Deployment Colours)
Release Date: 2018/07

Estimated price: JPY 2,376* (MYR RM85.20* / USD $21.77*)

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

The same thing, except the colors.


Yes, P-Bandai answers your every need with giving you guys this. Yes, essentially this is still the same thing that you’ll get with the normal G-Parts variant. Well with the exception of its colors.

However, it does give more details of what you could actually do with the G-Parts if you decide to get two of the same G-parts variant.

You can make something that has already looked pretty bad ass and give it more badassery there.

Get two of these, and you can make it look, really fucking badass.

As well from what we are reading here it does seem like the G-parts can fit both variants of the TR-1’s (both the normal TR-1 and the Advanced Hazel). So just in case if you are wondering if this is able to be fitted to the normal version since they used the Advanced Hazel as the model and not the Normal TR-1.

However, it does make us wonder if we should get one or more MG TR-1’s at this stage. Since we have a feeling that we might not just want to settle with just one version, we probably would want to get more so we can equip all these awesome gadgets to the Hazel. Though one can’t help to feel cynical when going through to PO section of P-Bandai and see P-Bandai aggressively trying to re-promote all the previous MG TR-1’s.

It looks insanely good if you have the two Gparts attached to the TR-1

Bandai knows that with them announcing the G Parts, we might not just settle for one TR-1. They knew that would be tempted to get more now.

And already they had a 2nd batch ordering for the G parts as we speak. Looking at this we can’t help to be reminded of a particular sentence we recently from a Chinese auntie Nasi lemak seller….

“Walao, very smart la they all.”

I agree, very smart indeed.

With that ends our 50th episode of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. This week we are getting a lot of news, both from the retail side and from the P-Bandai side, however, we do want to take time to analyze the new Retail releases, hence why we aren’t talking about them this week. Regardless, we really can’t hide our excitement for the upcoming RG Sazabi! OH, GODS, we really do hope it would be as good or better then RG Unicorn and so far from what we are seeing, the RG Sazabi does look pretty fucking sweet! Coming back to the P-Bandai announcements we do feel that the G-parts as well is quite an interesting announcement from P-Bandai that we are seeing here and honestly we are more motivated to be getting the TR-1’s now because of the G-Parts. We really hope that it would be as good to build as to look at. Anyways do let us know here of what from these kits that you are looking forward in getting or seeing more of and just know that we always look forward in reading and responding to your comments and thoughts of the kits and as well to this post!

We will be back with more Let’s Talk Gunpla Segment on the next coming Wednesday and we will be back as well this Sunday with a review of the Kotobukyia’s Megami Device 05 ASRA Ninja! Kimi really has a lot to say about this kit so we are going to have an interesting Sunday indeed this week.
