Hello and welcome again to another edition of our Unboxing and First Impressions! Kimi Here and this week we are going to be unboxing and giving our first impressions of a very NEWLY released RG kit, the RG 1/144 OZ-00MS Tallgeese EW. Oh yes, we are back with the current times now baby!
Though I must admit I was pretty excited for this one since this is a kit with a completely new mold and unlike the aswell quite recently released RG R2 Zaku II Johnny Ridden’s custom or the as well really recently released RG Unicorn Banshee, we feel like this might be a kit that is a real true follow-up to the brilliant RG Unicorn that we built last year.
Yes, though I know it is still quite early for me to say that but honestly, when looking at this, I really can’t help to be excited about it. Especially if you have not been building any new RG’s like me.
and I’ve been itching to build a new RG kit if I may be frank.
This really was something that I’ve been looking forward to since its announcement back in January (in Let’s Talk Gunpla 38). Though there are a lot more kits I had in tow for reviews and unboxing, I really feel that I should do this one first before moving on to other awesome ones that I had in store.
And sure enough, when I got this it doesn’t disappoint.
Though the look of the box art though familiar and understandably looking almost the same as all the other RG box arts that have come before it, I still do appreciate having been able to see the glorious Tallgeese in its full glory without anything coming in between it. Though to some, it might be a bit boring to look at, but honestly, I do prefer the sheer simple-ness to it more when compared to others.
Then again it is my honest belief that even though all the RG box arts may not look as awesome or as action-oriented as its HG or its MG counterparts and it can be too simple for most of us, but I feel the real strength of the RG box art really lies in its sheer simplicity here. Because unlike its HG or MG counterparts the RG box art does have a more ‘premium’-ish feel to it.
I would even go as far to say even the P-Bandai RG boxart looks better when compared to its HG or MG P-Bandai counterparts.
The reason being for this is that, from the boxart, you can see them making the boxes looked simple yet elegant, the combined the simple top box combined with its awesome looking black inner box. You really can’t stop to take one look at the box and immediately you just fall in love with the RG kit. They just really managed to make anyone buying this kit feel special and at the same time enticing a lot of people into buying the RG kits and to some, making the RG line up their first Gunpla purchase…
Annnnd at the same time making that their first gunpla purchasing mistake….
Because as we all know now, most RG kits were never meant to be a newbie friendly Gunpla kit. I can’t imagine how many people were duped into getting this insanely demanding line of kits……Though, I do see the same bunch of people still getting more kits after that…so…yeah…
Anyways, as I were saying, props to Bandai in continuing to make them RG boxarts damn attractive.
I find that it got even better when you open up the box. The sweet smell of fresh virgin plastic immediately just filled up my nose as I opened up the box and not content with just the sweet smell it as well graced me with all its awesome, beautiful runners. Slowly, I found myself falling in love with all of that beautiful runners.
As I caress the beautiful looking runners, I can’t help to shed a tear…. because I noticed that there were some shiny runners included in with the kit. Them beautiful shiny runners that would be ruined when I have to tear them off from their shiny gates. I had to stop myself from further harming this fragile heart of mine, though it does make me wonder if the parts here is as fragile as the previous RG kits.
However, curse you Bandai for making me imagine all the terrible things that I’d do to this beautiful thing…
God I should really stop talking like some sex-crazed lunatic…anyways back to the matter in hand…
Though it must be said that the runners and the parts does look pretty and detailed. Through my very detailed explanation above, you can guess on how excited I am in really getting to work with this one.
The sticker based decals as well looked quite nice here, typical with most RG lineups, this kit as well comes with the ‘Real’ stickers for some of the joints…though on how good this would look and applied is yet remain to be seen and I do hope that it would be as good or better then the ones we’ve used previously on the other RG kits.
The manual here is…still quite a standard affair. Just like the previously reviewed RG kits, you still have bits of it translated and still have the BEST bits here untranslated. I’m still a bit salty that they didn’t try to translate the best bits….but I did notice that bandai this time did enlarge those section up a little bit more then they did the last time. Though yes there were all written in Japanese still and they are having less English translated parts this time, but looking at the enlarged section it does make me wonder if Bandai is trying to make that into a possibility for the future RG lineups?
Whatever it is, it does make me somewhat happy, though at the same time it kind of felt like Bandai is pouring salt in an already salty wound of mine. Though I am still looking forward to the day that they finally more translated goodness to the manual.
However, since I haven’t really started on the kit, I can’t say much on how good the instructions are for this kit will be. Though when I take a short glance at it, I can already imagine it to be much less the same as our previous experiences with the previous RG build manuals.
Overall though, I honestly feel like this is definitely going to be a kit that I am really going to have fun with and so far it already given some very positive vibes to it.
Ooooh, I just can’t waaaait to start workin’ on you.
With that ends this round of Unboxing and First Impressions for the RG 1/144 OZ-00MS Tallgeese EW! What do you guys think of the Unboxing this time? I just realized that it has been a while that I’ve made Unboxing and First Impression posts…..and to finally be able to write and work on it, kind of feels good to be back writing these and with the fun, I had with this unboxing it kind of helped in the creation of this post!
I just really hope that this would be a blast to build and hopefully it would be an RG kit that I would be able to recommend to all. Not just a kit for us battle harden builders.
Anyways, we will be back again this week more Let’s Talk Gunpla Segment on the coming Wednesday and we will be back as well on the coming Sunday with the review for the HG 1/144 MS-06S Zaku II Char Aznable Custom (Gundam the Origins HG). So do look forward to that!
