It’s not every day that the thing that you want comes with four legs.
HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 225th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will again be taking a look at P-Bandai’s recent release announcements. However, today we would be taking the time to talk about a few non-gunpla release announcements.
So without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?
Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> YMS-09R-2 Prototype Rick-Dom Zwei Ver.A.N.I.M.E
Release Date: January 2021
Estimated price: JPY 7,700 (MYR RM 301.10* / USD $ 72.28* / EUR € 60.65*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
If you are familiar with the retail’s previously released Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Dom Tropen, you will find this version of the Dom to be more of the same as to what you would get with this version of the Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Dom variant.
Well, to be more precise, almost all of it is the same, haha. Because for this version of the Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Dom variant, they removed the leg-mounted thermonuclear jet engines attachment for this version. P-Bandai as well used a different vernier set for this version as well.
But even with that said, the rest of the Prototype Dom Zwei is pretty much the same, so technically, you are getting the same thing still.
So you may be thinking, so if you are technically getting the same thing, so, what’s the point of getting this version then?
Well, there are a few things that we could think of right out of the bat, that is after we all here took a closer look at the Mecha figure.
One of which is that its badass color scheme. Because we here would admit that we are quite a fan of this Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Dom variant color scheme. The combination of the velvet plum color scheme plus dark blue, purple, and red does make this quite a looker when comparing it to the previously released retail version of the Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Dom Tropen.
The other thing that we here are as well a fan of is the fact that it comes with good looking sticker decals. Yes, the decals aren’t anything to shout for, but it is nice to have some at least.
Regardless, we are pretty excited to see more of this when it hits the stores next year. Hopefully, we could find a retail store that carries this P-Bandai exclusive Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> Mecha Figure.
Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> MAN-010 G3 [Ge Drei]
Release Date: December 2020
Estimated price: JPY 29,150 (MYR RM 1,139.87* / USD $ 273.65* / EUR € 229.61*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
The next one on the list is something that we have seen on the news feed for quite a bit. But since there were alot of awesome Gunpla announcements, there weren’t too many chances for us to properly talk about this badass and humongous mecha figure.
Usually, when we talk about any retail and P-Bandai releases, the very first things that we talk about if the RSP of that said release made sense. The Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> G3 is one of those mecha figurines that we all here could agree that the RSP for it made complete sense. Even as a P-Bandai release.
Well, why wouldn’t it be? Especially when it looks like this:-
Yes, this is one humongous mecha figurine and not to mention it is as well, one glorious looking thing too.
We can’t imagine anyone looking at this and not falling absolutely in love with it.
But the insane looks of this Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> G3 aren’t the only thing that we love about it. Because we as well love all the features that this Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> G3 has.
Because despite its size, this isn’t just an expensive plastic brick. Because you can pose the darn thing and since it does come together with a stand, you as well could have it pose in whatever position that you want to leave the Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> G3 in, well, that is as long the stand would allow you to.
Not to mention, if you are not too keen with its MS mode, you can as well choose to convert your Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> G3 into its MA mode.
Quite honestly, we can’t imagine anyone looking at this and not come with the same conclusion with us in terms of its RSP after seeing all it could do.
If you are wondering that if we are interested in getting it, and the answer to that question would be a definite YES. However, if you are wondering if our financial situation would allow it, and the answer to that question would be a definite NO.
So, we might have to leave this to be just a pipe dream that will never come true for us, for now.
Anyways, with that concludes today’s 225th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. We are glad that we finally was able to talk about these Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> P-Bandai releases. It is a bit sad to think about the fact that we might not be able to get the Robot Spirits <SIDE MS> G3, but at the very least, we are glad that we get to talk about it here.
Maybe now we can start dreaming about just playing around with it in our dreams. Yes, we know, it is sad.
