Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.155

Lets Talk Gunpla Vol.155

As the end of the year approaches, it is not too late for something new 

HELLO! We are back!

In today’s 155th edition of Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be again be looking at P-Bandai to talk about some of the very interesting Gundam merch release announced Recently and as well we would be talking about some of the teasers that Bandai recently made.

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

Release Date: 2020/05

Estimated price: JPY 7,700* (MYR RM 290.50* / USD $ 70.29* / EUR € 63.35*)

*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

With the recent announcement of the retail sides Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Perfect Gundam, it is quite interesting but yet not that surprising to see P-Bandai too has one that they have decided to announce with this week.

Although after we all took a closer look at the P-Bandai’s offering…we can safely deduce that this is a Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> figure which was based on the 2017 release of the Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Full Armor Gundam. From what we are seeing here, the only thing that was changed here is really its color scheme. From the green scheme that we get with the retail version to this nice blue/white/orange color scheme combination of the P-Bandai version.

But that is not the only thing that is done here to differentiate this version to the retail version there is more that was added here that would make this version worth getting, they as well gave it unique decals specifically made for this version and as well a few more sets of faceplates units which had the design was taken from the same design that we see on the retail’s recently announced Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Robot Spirits Perfect Gundam. Even though yes it retains many of the same characteristics, but just like the rest of the kit the only difference that we can see here is really the colors.

Looking at this we can as well imagine that this will be something that fans of the Plamo-Kyoshiro manga would definitely not mind spending their hard-earned cash on. How do we know this, well we can confidently say that because we would as well be doing that too if we were given a chance.

This might be the first time we see an SD face attached to a full-sized gundam used in promotional pictures

Although admittedly we do think that this might be one which is going to be quite a hard one to nab over this side of the pond….because we are not that familiar with local Brick and mortar shops that may carry the P-Bandai Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> stuffs…so finding one.. that might be selling one, will pose quite a challenge to us all here.

Anyways, let us now move on to the next new bit that we all here devised…

The rumor mill Retail: HG Gundam Marchosias & HG Windam

Windam tease

Let us first start the new rumor mill subsegment of the Let’s Talk Gunpla posts by talking about the two retail kits that we seen alot of gunpla builders been talking about after their initial tease.

Although, we do admit that the same cannot be said for the HG Gundam Marchosias, since we have seen alot of it online, looking at how good and detailed the kit was it is hard not to imagine that Bandai would be canceling this kit at his stage

Eventhough there is alot that was revealed of this kit at this stage, we still are quite excited just to see more of it when the official news comes to us all next month in their big reveal in the Next Phase 2020 expo next month.

However, the one that we are REALLY interested to know more about is most probably the HG Windam. Because this was probably the first time that we would be seeing the Windam getting the gunpla love that it deserved. Although the question still remains will we would be releasing it as an HG SEED line up first or will they just give it the proper HG Mainline treatment? We assume that we will know more as soon as it is revealed in this coming Next Phase 2020 gunpla event.

It is really interesting to see where they go with this, but we kind of hoping that they would head towards giving it a Mainline HG treatment so we could now finally have all the other SEED Grunt units as a proper Mainline HG love.

Because we all here would really love to have an HG BABI of our own.

The Rumor Mill P-Bandai: HGAC G-unit slotted for 2020 release? 

Gunit announcement

This is another tease that was made by Bandai that we do find it to be quite interesting. In which after seeing it we do start to believe that this is an announcement that was directly made by Bandai after seeing how well received some of the kits from the Wing series that was released in this past year was.

Well, to be more precise we really feel like its an announcement made after seeing how well some of the reception for the P-Bandai Wing kits has been…This may explain why it gets the P-Bandai treatment, and aswell why we all here are not as surprised to see it gets the P-Bandai tag.

At the very least, seeing how consistent they are with their own HG lineups we here don’t really mind it as much. However, even with that said we here still feel that this is definitely would stand to gain more like a retail release more than as a P-Bandai release.

Well at the very least we know that they would most likely be able to complete the line-up. Time will tell, but we really have a strong feeling that we might hear more of it soon in this coming Next Phase 2020 event.

With that concludes today’s 155th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment! What do you think of this P-Bandai Gundam merch release announcement and some of the rumors that we are talking about here? Are you looking forward to this P-Bandai Gundam merch release and as well looking forward to be hearing more about all the upcoming announcements of these rumored kits? The end of today’s segment marks the end of Let’s Talk Gunpla posts for 2019. This year has been somewhat of a rollercoaster ride for all of us here, and hopefully, we would be able to consistently continue on down this awesome path.

But we are as well quite glad to as well end the year with some more further improvements to our posts. We really had fun doing the rumor mill subsegment, though we do still a bit lacking. Regardless, we do look forward to our continuous improvement with both our writing and our gunpla skills.

May we be looking at a better year ahead!
