Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.344

Riding into the sun like a bird

HELLO! We are back! 

In today’s 344th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be looking at the last retail Gunpla reveal from the Hobby Next Phase 2021 event. This time we will now talk about that newest 1/100 Full Mechanics kit announcement. 

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

The Rumor Mill: Full Mechanics 1/100 GAT-X370 Raider Gundam (Full Mechanics)

Release Date: May 2022 
Estimated price: JPY 5,500 (MYR RM 200.63* / USD $ 47.65* / EUR € 42.54*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

We’re not surprised to see this. 

Seeing how the Full Mechanics Calamity Gundam performed and received by the Gunpla Community, it’s clear to us all that we would see Bandai release the Raider as a Full Mechanics release as well.

Just like the Full Mechanics Calamity, we are as well quite impressed by what we see here. 

Because just from this one promotional picture look, it does look quite badass. Admittedly, unlike the Full Mechanics Calamity Gundam, we’re interested to see how they would pull off the transformation system on this Full Mechanics Raider Gundam. 

But is the transformation gimmick on this kit is enough to entice us into getting it? Well, since there isn’t alot to go around here, maybe we’ll wait until we have more details from Bandai before making that first Full Mechanics kit purchase.  

Even with that said, we’re sad to see another badass SEED MS design not getting that MG treatment. Honestly, both the Raider and Calamity deserved to get that same MG treatment as well. 

With that concludes our 344th edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment for today. Another badass release announcement from the Retail side! Yes, We’re sad to see another SEED MS design not getting that MG treatment, but alas, at least we’re getting that modern remastered treatment for both the Raider and Calamity. 

Hopefully, this does well enough that it would entice Bandai to give it a proper MG treatment, eventually. 

Anyways, we will be back again this coming Saturday (hopefully) with a new blog post. So, please do look forward to that!
