hmm, yes! In this 69th episode, we have some P-Bandai news!
We are back again this week with the 69th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment! 😀 Yes, we are going to be talking about a P-Bandai announcement and yes we are only getting a singular announcement this week…well amidst the other Tokyo Base rereleases that is…
However, Strangely enough, it was the only one announcement that really stands out from the rest. Then again, looking back this is a release from the…..
HG Gundam the Origins series, no surprise there really…..
So without further ado let us get into the announcement, shall we?
HG 1/144 RGC-80 GM Cannon (HG Gundam the Origins MSD)
Release Date: 2018/12
Estimated price: JPY 2,052* (MYR RM 76.41/ USD $ 18.45*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
Aaah, yes the GM Cannon. We were expecting to see this being announced.
When both the GM Guard and the GM Sniper Custom revealed back in May at the Shizuka Hobby show, we did catch a glimpse of this being showcased together with both the GM Guard Custom and the GM Sniper Custom. When we saw it, we knew that it wouldn’t be long till we hear the news of this being officially announced
However what we don’t know at the time is that if this is going to be getting either a Retail release or a P-Bandai release…..now, however, we wonder no more…since now we know that this is coming as a…
P-Bandai release. Brilliant…..
Anyways, it must be said with the absence of any information or news about this particular kit for so long before, we were at first quite worried that this might not see the light of day. At the very least, to finally hear the announcement of this kit does put our worries aside and regardless of us knowing that this is going to be one expensive endeavor, we are still quite excited to get this kit.
How wouldn’t we’d be? Just look at that handsome kit?!
Yes, as you can see, this is really one good looking GM. Coming in with a new redesigned body unit, head and frontal leg armor, this is honestly a kit that is really slowly looking like the OG GM already. Not to mention the awesome color scheme for this is just making it just look brilliant!
We liked how this GM Cannon looked, the detail and again the awesome color scheme is just making the kit looks…oh so sexy. This is really one kit that I could see people would do a lot of awesome custom builds with I wouldn’t be surprised if we would start to see this being converted into an OG GM. Though, we can’t help to feel when looking at this, that we will eventually see the Origins version of the GM? Then again as of yet, they haven’t released the Origin’s RX-78-2, so it might take a while for us to see that happen.
Well, that is if they decided to continue the Amuro’s side of the Origin’s saga that is.
Honestly, we are actually glad to see more Federation suits getting the limelight here. Since the mainline HG Gundam the Origins has been primarily focused on just the Zeon side’s suits. We haven’t been seeing a lot of love being given to the feddy side of the spectrum. Even in the MSD line up, we are seeing more Zeon suits then the Feds.
So, its good that we are seeing more Feddy suits in the Origins version, well more specifically the GM origins version. We do hope to see more feddy suits being made into the HG line up. That would really be awesome.
With that ends our 69th episode of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment! Yes, P-Bandai strikes again this week with a new awesome looking kit HG kit! Goddamn after seeing this, we now truly believe that we are going to really have a hectic December ahead and really this is really one that we are looking forward to!
Expensive or not, we are most definitely getting this particular one!
