HELLO! We are back!
In today’s 461st edition of our Let’s Talk Gunpla segment, we will be taking the time to talk about P-Bandai’s latest (for real this time) Gunpla release announcement! Finally, after a long and arduous wait, now it’s really nice to know we are getting a new MG Ace Pilot log kit.
So, without further ado. Let us get into it, shall we?
MG 1/100 MS-14B Gelgoog High Mobility Type [Johnny Ridden Custom](MG)
Release Date: July 2023
Estimated price: JPY 6,380 (MYR RM 213.23* / USD $ 48.44* / EUR € 44.36*)
*The price is subject to change, depending on the situation
We admit that seeing a new Ace Pilot Log MG Gunpla release announcement is one of the most exciting Gunpla-related news we’ve heard all year, especially when it involves Johnny Ridden and the MG Gelgoog Ver.2.0.
Why wouldn’t we’d be?
We have seen a lot of awesome custom Zeon MS designs from the Ace Pilot Log series, especially the ones that they base on the MG Ver.2.0 kits. So, of course, we were not surprised when we saw how badass this new variant of the P-Bandai MG Gelgoog Ver.2.0 looked.
Admittedly, there are no changes made to the base look of P-Bandai’s MG High Mobility Gelgoog Ver.2.0. (we first see this version with the MG Uma Lightning’s Version), but it is one that we expected since, in lore, Johnny Ridden’s Custom machine still has all the same systems (with a bit of tweaking) as the standard version of the High Mobility Gelgoog.
So what, then, is the difference between this and Uma Lightning’s version of the High Mobility Gelgoog?
Easy, the color scheme.
Here you get the iconic and beautiful Johnny Ridden red and black color scheme combo, pair it with the MG Gelgoog Ver.2.0’s badass looks, and you have that perfect combo. This combo, in turn, makes this version of the MG Gelgoog one of the best-looking MG Gelgoog variants we’ve seen!
It even comes with its iconic 360mm Bullpup Rocket Cannon which looked fantastic in MG form, and it is nice to see P-Bandai included in the H&L-GB03K/360mm Giant Bazooka together in this MG kit!
And since this version uses the MG Gelgoog Ver.2.0 as its base, you can expect this will come with all the same bits that the MG Gelgoog Ver.2.0 comes with (like the badass beam rifle and the badass shield). Plus, since there isn’t much change done to its overall base, we do not think the building experience would be any different.
All in all, we are looking forward to getting this one. It looked fantastic, and looking back at our time working on the Uma Lightning version, we know this would be a blast to build. Plus, it would be nice to have this posed right next to our MG Uma Lighting’s Gelgoog.
And that concludes our 461st edition of the Let’s Talk Gunpla segment. Honestly, what an announcement this is! Yes, it might be just a recolored MG Gelgoog Ver.2.0, but this is one of those MG Ver.2.0 kits that deserves more love from Bandai!
Hopefully, if this does well enough, it might help to convince Bandai to give us the MG version of the Gelgoog Jeager. So then we could get Shin Matsunaga’s version of it.
Anyways. We’ll be back again next Thursday (hopefully) with a new blog post. Do look forward to that!
