The white king
HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 348th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be looking at one P-Bandai’s latest Gunpla release announcement! Today we’ll finally get the final look and learn more of the new upcoming HG Code Fairy kits!
So, let us get into it, shall we?
HG 1/144 RX-80WR White Rider (HGUC)
Release Date: February 2022
Estimated price: JPY 2,420 (MYR RM 89.69* / USD $ 21.27* / EUR € 18.83*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
When P-Bandai did the teaser for this kit a while back, we all were excited to see what awesomeness awaits us when they finally translated the White Rider into Gunpla. So imagine our excitement when we get to know that the White Rider looked as awesome in Gunpla form as it is in the Game.
Yes, we admit that the P-Bandai HGUC White Rider looked badass in Gunpla form. Frankly, from what we can see here, P-Bandai did a great job recreating the HGUC White Rider in the Gunpla form.
It looks absolutely fantastic, and even though it has many of the same parts as its other brethren, but the changes here are enough for one to justify getting it.
But to those interested in this and already own all the other HGUC Pale Rider variants, might be wondering what you be getting here?
Well, for one, you get a new head unit. Well, more precisely, you get a badass crowned Gundam Head unit here. You also get a body unit that is slightly modified and two new mounted weapon systems. You also get a new front waist frontal skirt armor set and a beautiful combination of white, grey, and yellow color scheme, with a slight touch of blue (or red) color scheme added to it here.
But we all here feel it’s the two badass weapon designs that we find ourselves in love with this P-Bandai HGUC kit.
That two-weapon system is the highly modified version of the HGUC Pale Rider Calvary’s composite Weapon Shekinah and the cool half cape backpack-mounted shield unit. Yes, besides the Badass crowned Gundam head unit, these two weapon systems designed specifically for the White Rider are the other parts that make this kit look iconic.
Although, admittedly, we all here think that the modified Shekinah is the most badass bit of this badass kit. Oh, they included the Gundam Rose-inspired heat saber with this kit.
But speaking about the whole Gundam Rose-inspired look, honestly, if you include in the cape and the beam saber, this kit does look quite close to the Gundam Rose. Although, one does start to wonder if Bandai is teasing something here?
Regardless, we are impressed by what we see here.
However, sadly, at the time of writing, all the preorders for our side have been closed. Unless P-Bandai decided to increase the production quota for this kit, we do not see ourselves be getting this kit so soon.
But if they do decide to reopen it, you bet your asses we would be the first to preorder this kit.
With that concludes our 348th edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment for today. Yes, we realize that there still are two more P-Bandai Code Fairy kits to talk about here. Honestly, we would love to talk more about them, but due to Kimi feeling a bit under the weather, we decided to only focus on today’s segment by talking about the HGUC White Rider first.
We will continue talking about them more in the next upcoming segment, for sure! So do look forward to the Saturday segment!
