Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.131


Grandpa went for plastic surgery and they botched it

HELLO! We are back!

In today’s 131st let’s talk gunpla segment, we will be looking at one pretty interesting retail gunpla news that was just recently announced. We would admit that today we will be MAINLY would be talking about the NEW HG Grampa variant, however, this is one that we would say is a bit different compared to all the other HG Grampa variants that we have seen to date.

So without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?

HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam G40 ver. (Industrial Design Ver.) (HGUC) 

HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam G40 ver. (Industrial Design Ver.) (HGUC)

Release Date: 2019/12

Estimated price: JPY 2,790* (MYR RM 108.54* / USD $ 25.88* / EUR € 23.69*)

*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
This is one impressive pose. One that we do find that even some of the MG kits that I know would struggle to pull off this pose.

What happens when you let both a film Director and a world-renowned car designer have a free hand to recreate the Gramps?

Well, you end up with one of the weirdest looking Gramps yet.

Why so? well…we do admit when we saw this have a feeling that this is not going to be the one that would be winning hearts. Even we here in the blog struggle to find anything that we like when it comes down to its looks.

We do admit that it takes us quite a while to really appreciate the looks of this particular Grampa Variant

But the same thing cannot be said about its badass articulation system. Because God, when we all saw it, we all here were spellbound by what this Version of the HG Gramps could do. Because from what we are seeing here, it looks like an articulation system that we would normally see on the much more expensive / bigger scaled MG or RG kits.

Which is something that, we admit that we are quite impressed by.

Which kind of as well explains why we would see the price was set as such. For that much innovation that we see being made here, it kind of made sense why the kit is a bit more pricer compared to the other HG Gramps variants.

When we saw this pose, we really thought that we are looking at an MG Gramps, not an HG Gramps

Although looking at this one does wonder if all the future HG Gunpla would as well come with this kind of insane articulation like we are seeing here with this version? If it does, well, this might be the start of seeing more and more insane HG kits in the near future.

With that concludes today’s 131st edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment! What do you think of today’s Retail side Gunpla release announcement? Are you looking forward to this upcoming Retail Gunpla release? After going through some really pretty interesting P-Bandai announcement last week, it is quite nice to see the retail as well announced one that is as well is quite interesting to see.

Although we are still quite torn in between getting this, or not. But frankly, looking at how much we are gunpla we are getting here with this version of the HG Gramps, it would be insane for us to not get this insane HG kit.

It looks to be one of the best articulated HG, but unfortunately, it is not the best-looking one that we’ve seen so far.

Anyways, we will be back again with more gunpla news on this coming Friday and as well on the next coming Wednesday! Kimi will be back again this Monday with an Unboxing or a Review. So do look forward to that!
