Unboxing and First Impressions of MG 1/100 XXXG-01H Gundam Heavyarms EW Ver. (MG)


My first MG Wing kit

Even though we have featured and talked about a few Gundam Wing kits here in the blog, i.e from both the HG and RG line up. I realized that I never have built or gotten any of the MG kits from the Gundam Wing series.

I do find that to be a bit strange because it’s not like I don’t like the MS designs for the MG line up in this series. It’s just that for some unknown reason I really don’t have the same urge to get the MG version of this particular line up as I do with others.

But I do intend to change that, with me starting off with my fav MS in the whole series the MG Gundam Heavyarms. So as usual let us start this unboxing part from the top, let’s first talk about the boxart for this MG kit.

In which I would start by admitting that this is not the best looking MG Boxart that I’ve seen.

Not the best looking MG Boxart that we’ve seen coming from Bandai

Because when compared to the other MG releases from this year, the MG Gundam Heavyarms boxart looks really plain. 2012, besides being the year everyone thought would end the human society, it was as well a year that you got to see alot of badass boxarts from the revamped MG SEED Remastered kit, some from the UC series and as well from the still quite fresh at the time MG Unicorn series boxarts. Looking at this and comparing that work to the rest, you really start to see, just how lackluster the art showcased here is.

Even when compared to the other MG Wing Gundam Boxart, the Heavyarm’s boxart is really is looking not as impressive as the rest from this line-up. This may actually explain why for the longest time I wasn’t as interested in getting it even though this MG kit has been out for a while.

Even though the main art is not as impressive, but the side section is for this MG packaging is still one that I was quite impressed by. Using a unique lettering format that is only special to the MG Wing Gundam line up, it is one that I do admit I quite fond with. It does make the whole section look quite clean and nice to look at. Although the longer I look at it the more its starting to look like they used the same lettering format as what we see on the Ver.K.A’s packaging.

I really like the lettering that is used here, it does look really nice on the eyes

So I guess it is not all that bad.

As I moved on to the actual unboxing, I do again finding myself quite impressed by this MG Heavyarms content. Because from what I can see here it does look like the MG Heavyarms parts look quite well produced here. I as well liked how some of the details on certain sections of the kit looked here and I do as well find myself really liking the colors that they decided to go for this MG Heavyarms kit.

I was starting to see alot of promise here with this MG kit.

This is really one view that I never get sick at looking no matter how many times I open a new kit up
Though the details here looks simple but nice. Not to mention the yellow that is used here as well looked quite good.
Simple, but the details seen on this particular part does look quite good
This is the kind of red I love seeing on an MG kit, especially one that has some pretty nice details like this

As I move on to the manual, the last bit of this unboxing…This bit really left me a bit underwhelmed. Although it wasn’t due to the fact that it uses the same artwork from the boxart, no. It was just because of the lack of lore present here in the manual. Since this kit still has most of its content untranslated like the ones seen on most modern Bandai kits, one might expect that this manual would be filled with some badass Japanese lore.

But no, the amount of lore that is present here looked more like what you would expect to see with the modern translated MG manual of today. Which I do admit is a bit of a disappointment for me, since I was hoping that they would cram in more lore stuff here.

But even with that said, I do admit that I like the format that they used here for the manual. From the same lettering format that was used on the MG Heavyarms side section that is seen throughout the MG Heavyarms manual to the visuals that they decided to go for the MG Heavyarms building instruction section. Strangely enough, I do find that the kind of format that they used here does make the MG Heavyarms manual look very pleasant on the eyes, for some reason and the manual does as well look quite neat too.

Even with the background eliminated, we are still not a fan of how the art for the Heavyarms looked here.
some lore on the front….
and on the middle side. But if you are expecting more detailed lore like you see on other Japanese MG Manuals, you won’t find any of that here
But at the very least the did have some nice lettering format and a very neat looking MG building instruction section made for this MG kit

Overall, I do have some good vibes here with this MG kit. Even though it does have bits here and there which I am wasn’t that happy with, but at the same time, I do have a feeling that this is going to be a kit that I would have a decent fun with.

One that is kind of expected.

With that ends this week’s Unboxing and First Impressions for the MG 1/100 XXXG-01H Gundam Heavyarms (MG). What do you think of this week’s kit that I just unboxed? Do you yourselves have the same experience as I did with this MG kit? This is one unboxing that I do find to be quite interesting-ish. Although it might not be as impressive as all my previous MG unboxings went, yet it is still something that I do find to be quite fun to get through.

One that I have a feeling is going to be a good one.

Anyways, we will be back again with more Let’s Talk Gunpla Segment on the next coming Wednesday and Friday. While I will be back on Monday with another review or an unboxing, So do look forward to that!
