A real beautiful mess, this is.
HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 275th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be taking the time to finally talk about that one newest P-Bandai MG release announcement that we just saw recently. The one that we here do find to be quite an interesting one for us to spend our time discussing.
So, without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?
MG 1/100 XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 “Patchwork” Ver.Ka (MG)
Release Date: June 2021
Estimated price: JPY 4,950 (MYR RM 189.61* / USD $ 46.94* / EUR € 38.67*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
Out of all the MG Crossbone Ver.Ka variants that we were expecting to see made into a Gunpla form, this isn’t the one that we all here had in mind to see.
Why? Well, that is because you could create one for yourself as long you have that extra X-1 and X-3 MG kits lying around. So, this isn’t something that one would think that we needed a full release for if we were, to be honest, here.
But even with that said, we would admit that there is some pretty good argument to be had here if one does want to get it. Because, for one, this version does come with the Shield Hook equipment included. So for those that don’t want to spend the time to build one from the ground up, well, you might want to consider getting this version.
Secondly, there is as well the matter that this version would make for a better collector’s item since this is an official P-Bandai release. I would bet that there are a lot of fans of the manga series and this MS design that would be more than happy to get this official version of the Crossbone instead of building one themselves.
Even we are, admittedly, quite taken by what we see here. Which honestly, we do find it to be quite funny considering that this is going to be more and less the same kit. Plus, we do think that getting this version would be a much cheaper option to go for, if you don’t have extra MG X-1 or the MG X-3 lying around.
But the question remains, will we be one of those that would be planning to get this? Well, since most of us here is a fan of the Crossbone MS design, yeah, we might.
Anyways, that concludes our 275th edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. It’s nice to finally find ourselves being able to cover all the latest P-Bandai Gunpla release announcements. It has been quite a struggle to keep up with all this news coming in one after another, but it is something that we all here find to be a good thing.
Because in these dark times, it is nice to have some light to shine our way through. Even if the light that is being shined in is coming from P-Bandai. We guess it’s better to have some than nothing at all.
Anyways, we will be back again next coming Tuesday (hopefully) with more Gunpla/ Gundam merch-related posts for this blog, so yes, please do look forward to that!
