Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.386

We wouldn’t be surprised if Captain Planet Gundam would be a P-Bandai China exclusive.

HELLO! We are back! 

In today’s 386th edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be looking at a few P-Bandai release announcements from P-Bandai China. Interestingly, P-Bandai China released information on three new China-exclusive P-Bandai kits based on existing kits.

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

MG 1/100 ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam Ver.2.0 (Collection Ver.)(MG)

Release Date: October 2022
Estimated price: CNY 385 (MYR RM 250.85* / USD $ 57.28* / EUR € 53.56*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

MG 1/100 MSN-04 Sazabi Ver.Ka (Collection Ver.)(MG)

Release Date: December 2022
Estimated price: JPY 700 (MYR RM 456.08* / USD $ 104.15* / EUR € 97.38*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

MG 1/100 RX-93 v Gundam Ver.Ka (Collection Ver.)(MG)

Release Date: December 2022
Estimated price: JPY 560 (MYR RM 364.87* / USD $ 83.32* / EUR € 77.90*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation

Yes, P-Bandai China again decided to release another set of recolored ‘Elemental’ MG kits collection. That means there is no new modification on the exclusive releases, only that they get a new paint job and some tattoo-like decals. 

So if you’re expecting to get this from a scalper and hoping that you would get more Gunpla? Well, you’ll be disappointed to know there isn’t anything new added in here besides its colors and decals. 

So, we can imagine that only avid collectors or fans of these three MG kits will be the only ones lining up to get these P-Bandai China Exclusive kits. 

But unlike the first batch of kits that they released last time, these kits that they choose are all good-looking MG kits. Not to mention, they’re as well excellent MG kits as well. 

Plus, they as well gave it some pretty awesome color schemes.

But the one out of the three that we are all a fan of here most is most definitely the recolored MG Sazabi Ver. Ka. 

The white & Blue color scheme looked absolutely fantastic here, and best of all? Even the stupid tattoo decals look great on the Sazabi color-wise. If only they opted to use MG Sazabi’s standard decals only recolored in blue, that would make the whole kit look absolutely fantastic and make it a definite must-buy for all of us here. 

However, despite our admiration for these releases, we would admit that these are the kind of MG kits that are a bit harder to justify getting. Yes, from the price stated, it is clear that P-Bandai China is selling these three at a price close to the MSRP of the standard releases. But we know that there is no way for us to get this using normal means since they’re China exclusives. So we know that these three will be insanely expansive kits to get for most of us plebs. 

So, no, we’re not going to be spending money on these, no matter how much we like to have them. 

And that concludes our 386th edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment for today. It’s nice to see that despite everything currently going on in China, it’s nice to know that they’re still getting China-exclusive kits. 

Hopefully, this news would put a smile on some of the Gunpla Builders over there. 

Anyways, we’ll be back again next week (hopefully) with a new blog post. So, please do look forward to that! 

Oh, one more thing before we go, it would be a tremendous help to us all here in the blog if you guys were to leave a like on our posts and subscribe to the blog if you find yourselves enjoying our gunpla/plamo related posts. We would appreciate it if you guys would take the time to show your support by leaving an upvote on our R/Gunpla posts and by leaving a like on our Facebook and Instagram posts or pages! 

We are also open to any good and bad feedback, so feel free to write away.

Hopefully, by sharing our love and passion for building and writing about gunplas or other plamos here, we hope that it’ll help to inspire all of here to pick up on Gunpla building. Or better yet, reignite your love and passion for it.

Anyways, we shall see all of you again soon, and we as well hope that you all here have a splendid day and week ahead! Oh as well, do have an excellent time building your awesome gunplas there and until next time.

Ciao!  


One thought on “Let’s Talk Gunpla Vol.386

  1. Hello. I’m just getting into Gunpla and I was given an HG Cosmic Era 1/144 ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam for an early Father’s Day gift. I’ve never built one of these but I’ve been building models ever since I was 8. (I’m 59 now). I’ve built a few complicated kids in my time and looking at the parts, this is right up there with the best of them. It’s a sweet looking kit. I have watched Gundam for years and have admired the models of them ever since I first saw them. Though I’ve yet to build one, I’m truly looking forward to it. My nephew also builds them. I actually got him into building models and he’s come a long way. Do you have any suggestions for building this kit? I don’t want to mess it up and any tips would be welcome. Sorry for the rambling here. I’m hurting and muddling my way through things these days. Anyway, again, please let me know anything that might help. Thank you for your time and please have a great day. 😊😊
