Finally, the purple Crab boi is coming as a Gunpla release!
HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 334th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be looking at one of P-Bandai’s latest Gunpla release announcements!
So, without further ado, let us get into it, shall we?
HG 1/144 OZ-10VMSX Gundam Aesculapius (HGAC)
Release Date: January 2022
Estimated price: JPY 3,960 (MYR RM 145.25* / USD $ 34.92* / EUR € 30.21*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
Even though this release is something that most of us here already expected to see coming from P-Bandai, but yet, we still find ourselves surprised by it.
That is because we didn’t expect it to look this good.
Yes, admittedly, we should’ve expected it when seeing how good both the HGAC Gundam Germinass 02 & 02 kits looked. But honestly, none of us expected P-Bandai to design this to look more like an RG kit than an HGAC kit.
Regardless, we are all glad to see P-Bandai going all out on the design of this badass-looking HGAC kit.
So what about this kit’s looks that made us all wet our pants over it?
Well, for one, we can see that they fully improved upon the original Gundam Aesculapius’s Close Combat mode design. Because instead of making it look like it’s just some additional armor placed on it, P-Bandai made the extra armor on this version look like it is a part of the MS. Even though we do not think this rendition is faithful to the manga, but frankly, this is the kind of brave change made by P-Bandai that we do not mind seeing.
What’s more, they even added more insane details to the HGAC Gundam Aesculapius’s Close Combat mode looks to match the already badass looks of the HGAC Germinass’s here. The thing that we are impressed by here is how tasteful the whole thing looked. We like that all the details seen on the HGAC Gundam Aesculapius parts looked like they belonged there, and it serves a purpose.
The other thing that we all liked about this kit is its badass color scheme. Contrary to its looks, the HGAC Gundam Aesculapius’s color scheme is faithful to its manga counterpart. But staying true to the color scheme isn’t the part where we find ourselves impressed by here. It’s the way the color looked on the kit is where we find ourselves impressed.
We all here felt that P-Bandai did a fantastic job here with this, and admittedly, we’re looking forward to seeing where they go from here.
And, it is nice to see P-Bandai.my had this listed on their shopee site. Hopefully, the Preorder is not closed as soon as we hit the preorder button there.
With that concludes our 334th edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment for today. What an announcement this is! We’re impressed by what P-Bandai made here. Admittedly, we are interested to see where P-Bandai would go from here with the G-Unit HGAC kits! We have a feeling that this is not going to be the only insanely badass G-Unit HGAC kit that is coming.
Anyways, we will be back again this coming Saturday (hopefully) with a new blog post. So, please do look forward to that!
