Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.308

The Last Retail HGGBB bit. 

HELLO! We are back! 

In today’s 308th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will continue where we left off with the Gundam Breaker Battlelouge coverage by now talking about the last Retail kit on the list.

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

[RETAIL] HG 1/144 Gundam OO Command QAN[T] (HGGBB)

Release Date: December 2021
Estimated price: JPY 2,200 (MYR RM 82.67* / USD $ 19.91* / EUR € 16.72*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

Again we found ourselves surprised by the Gundam Breaker Battlelouge’s design team in creating one of the best-looking Gunpla redesigns that we’ve seen to date. 

Why wouldn’t we’d be thinking so? Especially when they managed to make a mostly beam firing at all sides/melee type MS into a physical melee/medium-range spec-ops MS.

But the thing that we are most impressed by here is that they made it look quite good-looking. Somehow, Bandai managed to find a way to combine the look of the Original Command Gundam and the QANT[T] all into one Gunpla, and it looks freakking glorious. 

So you might be wondering what exactly did they do here? 

Well, for one, they took the time to redesign the head, most of the chest armor, and parts of the leg armor to make it look closer to the Command Gundam while at the same time leaving enough visual cues that would still remind you that this kit using the HG00 QAN[T] as its base. 

What’s more, the weapons they designed for the HGGBB Command QAN[T] looked as good as the actual kit itself. That’s because they kept the same aesthetic style for the weapons, just like the rest of this kit. So what that means is that the HGGBB Command QAN[T] weapons share the same looks of both the Command and the QAN[T]’s weapon designs. 

We do feel like Bandai did a pretty good job here, and we are really quite impressed by the redesign work that they did on this HGGBB Command QAN[T]. 

Honestly, The HGGBB Command QAN[T] is definitely another kit that we all here are excited about getting! Well, as soon as the PO for this one opens, that is. 

That ends our coverage of all the Retail HG Gundam Breaker Battlelouge kits, for now. 

So with that out of the way, let us now talk about all the P-Bandai HG Gundam Breaker Battlelouge, shall we?

Well, we decided to do things a bit differently this time with this The Rumor Mill segment. 

Why?

Well, that is because we noticed something when we spent time looking at all of these P-Bandai Gunpla releases, and that is they’re all just a recolored versions of existing HG kits. 

So instead of talking about them individually, we would talk about all of them all at once. 

So with that out of the way, it’s time to give our first impressions of all of them. 

Honestly? We do like what we see here. Yes, we are aware that these are really just recolored versions of the existing HG kits. But they did such a damn good job with the recoloring work on these P-Bandai HGGBB Gunplas that we honestly do not mind getting them. Even though there is a high possibility that they would have all the same features as their retail counterparts.

But, since this the only promotional picture that we have of all of these kits, there still might be hope that P-Bandai still decides to add in more new things. So, our opinions on these kits might change somewhere in the near future, as soon as we learn more about them. 

But for now, all we can really say is that we are still quite impressed by what we see here, and we are really looking forward to learning more of all these new badass P-Bandai HG Gundam Breaker Battlelouge releases in the coming months. 

With that concludes our 308th edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment for today. In the next blog post, we will finally get to talk about that one Retail Gunpla release announcement made together alongside the HUGE HG Gundam Breaker Battlelouge release announcements.

When, you may ask? Well, this coming Thursday, of course. So, please do look forward to that!
