I’m dreaming of a white Wing Gundam…
HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 146th edition of Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we are again will be taking a look at one new release announcement by the nice chaps from the P-Bandai side. However this time we will not be talking about a gunpla release, instead today we will be talking about one very interesting Gundam merch. Which is coming from the Gundam Fix Figuration Metal Composite line-up
Which is prolly one of the whitest things that we have seen coming and no it is not the kind of white thing that you think it is.
So without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?
Gundam Fix Configuration Metal Composite XXXG-00YSW Wing Gundam Snow White Prelude
Release Date: 2020/05
Estimated price: JPY 29,700* (MYR RM 1139.42* / USD $ 273.54* / EUR € 247.08*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
That was the only word that popped into our head when we all saw this for the first time. Even though by now there is already alot of Wing Gundam variants that is out in the market, however, this might be the first one that we’ve seen made which might be the one that we all here feel is the most beautiful variant that we’ve seen to date.
This does make us feel quite interested in picking up the Gundam Wing Frozen Teardrop novel because looking at how badass this Wing Gundam variant looked here, it makes us wonder what more badass MS do they have there in store for us to discover in the novel? As well it does makes us wonder if they have any plans to turn the novel into an anime form seeing that there is alot of Wing Gundam novels out there in the wild?
Anyways, as we take a closer look at this Gundam Fix Figuration Metal Composite kit, there are a few interesting things that we do want to talk about here, because as all the Gundam Fix Figuration kits that come before this, this Wing Gundam variant as well is something that is designed by the legendary Mr.Hajime Katoki. Even though yes it is just another G.F.F.M.C Wing Gundam Zero Custom with a white color scheme instead with some new bits given to it. But to say that is the only case is a bit misleading.
Because if you take a closer look at the G.F.F.M.C Wing Gundam Snow White Prelude you will notice that this is an absolutely insanely detailed kit. It’s hard to not look at this and not notice all the tiny details which could be seen on the wing binder unit, the seraphim unit, the Neue Zwerg unit, and its main body unit. Though most of the same badass design from the previously released G.F.F.M.C Wing Gundam Zero Custom still plays a big part in the looks department. But the combination of both the new white color scheme and its new types of equipment made a huge difference in making this stand out amongst the other variants that we’ve seen coming through this line-up.
What’s more not content with just giving it more stuff and as well give it a badass look. The G.F.FM.C Wing Gundam Snow White Prelude was as well given alot of really interesting mechanics here as well. For instance this Wing Gundam variant still has the same ability to transform into the Neo-Bird form like its previous G.F.F.M.C iteration, however what sets this variant apart from its Endless Waltz variant is the fact that it has the ability to have all its extra pieces of equipment to attach themselves up to the Wing Gundam which would enable it to turn inro transform into some new form of flying thing and as well they could as well have all the new bits to be detached from the Neo Bird to turn it into small flying aircraft.
All in all, it does look quite interesting to all of us here. We as well kept finding ourselves close into pressing that preorder button, however, the only thing that is really stopping us from making that insane leap, is that insane price. Looking at the asking price, I really don’t think that there would a lot of us here in the blog that would be able to own this badass kit.
Even with that said, we can imagine to whom that this kit would really appeal to and to those that are obviously isn’t that bothered with the insane asking price. Which would be the richer die-hard fans of the Wing Gundam series and the avid collectors of the Gundam Fix Configurations series.
Would we recommend this? well.. as long as you have the money to do so or if you are a big fan. For us personally, even though yes it does look quite interesting but we rather spend that money on rare gunplas instead of this.
Because seriously with that much money, you can actually buy a few P-Bandai MG kits and still would have change for ramen.
With that concludes today’s 146th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment! What do you think of this particular P-Bandai merch announcement? Are you looking forward to this upcoming P-Bandai Merch release? Looking at this badass looking Wing Gundam variant does make us wonder if Bandai would ever consider releasing this variant in the RG form. Since it is one of the closest things that we could get that looks as good as the G.F.F.M.C Wing Gundam Snow White prelude
Plus it would be really nice to have an all-white Wing Gundam like this displayed in the Homebase. Well, which wouldn’t be the one that would break the bank like the Gundam Fix Configuration version, of this badass kit..
Anyways, we will be back again with more gunpla news on the next coming Wednesday and as well on the next coming Friday! Kimi will be back again this Monday with an Unboxing or a review of a kit. So do look forward to that!
