Not really gunpla related, but trust us that it is still somewhat related.
HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 210th edition of our let’s talk gunpla, we will be taking the time to talk about an announcement that we feel is one of the most interesting ones that we’ve seen to date. The reason for that is just like the MGEX’s announcement this was a release that will be seeing both retail and P-Bandai side.
But unlike the MGEX’s announcement, we are going to cover it from the P-Bandai side.
So, without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?
GMG Mobile Suit Gundam Principality of Zeon Soldier [W/ Extra Addtions] & Set
Release Date: December 2020 (for all versions)
Estimated price: JPY 4,378 (MYR RM 174.73* / USD $ 40.95* / EUR € 36.27*) (for indivual unit)(for both P-Bandai and the Retail version)
Estimated price: JPY 13,134 (MYR RM 524.19* / USD $ 122.86* / EUR € 108.82*) (for the set)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
It is quite rare to see both P-Bandai, and the retail side is listing something similar. Not to mention that it is as well a release that we feel is one of the most amusing things that we’ve seen to date as well.
One of the reasons for that because it was an announcement made for both P-Bandai and the retail side. Not to mention, it was an action figure model that looked interesting that as well comes with several types of equipment and weapons.
I’m aware that this is a Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, and to be frank, we here are no expert in the matter of the action figures.
But, since it is related to the Gundam universe, and it is something that we here do find to be quite interesting enough for us to talk about, so that is why we are talking about it here.
So you might be wondering why are we talking about the P-Bandai version instead of the Retail version?
Well, that is because of two reasons, one is that the P-Bandai version does come with P-Bandai exclusive parts. Secondly, P-Bandai as well announced a variant with all three versions of the figure in one set, and yes, that particular version as well comes with the P-Bandai exclusive parts.
We here personally think the P-Bandai set version is the one to go for if you are thinking of collecting all three in one go. But if you feel like both the P-Bandai individual variant and the set variant is a bit too expensive for you to get, you can always go for the retail version. For only JPY 4,378 (MYR RM174.70 / USD 40.95/ EUR 36.26), it is alot more doable than the price for the complete set.
Honestly, this is the kind of thing that we hope that we would see more of in the future. Yes, we are still hoping Bandai would release more gunplas, but, at the same time, it is nice to see them branching out doing things other than just Gunplas.
With that concludes today’s 210th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment! What do you guys think of these P-Bandai release announcements? Are you looking forward to all of these P-Bandai releases? We are quite frankly, really excited for the release of these. It looks promising, and its the kind of things that we do hope that Bandai continues to pursue moving forward.
Anyways, we will be back again with some more new gunpla related posts on the next coming Monday! So do look forward to that!
