    I've said it before and I'll say it again, I swear Bandai has my workshop bugged and they're directly monitoring my phone and internet logs.

    ..okay, I just heard someone shout "NO! WE'RE NOT!!" coming from my display cabinet.


    ...Wait.. when did Gunpla LEDs have microphones on them?

    -
    Anyway, here's something that will put me back on Bandai's Gunpla Mafia Hitlist again. I got a package in the mail from China and the good news is it's not Coronavirus.

    I know this is my SuperNova HeavyArms Igel, but that boxart screams "It's a sailboat! you're just not looking at it hard enough!"

    Except, Wing Zero Custom/EW never had one? I certainly didn't see it in Endless Waltz....

    Wing Zero looks good, I like the folding TBR, but not thrill about the hands being all white like the PG...though if it's like current MG kits that have multiple types of hands poses instead of joints then it's a easy paint over.

    The Wing Zero Custom's bird mode + shield have been retconned in with some of the more recent manga adaptations of the material.

    I don't think they'd go P-Bandai. It's a main hero suit in a popular series. P-Bandai is for villain suits, "obscure" side story designs, and sometimes special/scene specific recolours.

    Okay you twisted my arm.. here it is. Mind the glare from my work light, the ink on the panel lines are drying. It's so incredibly detailed you would never believe it!

    20200917_171753.jpg


    It has fully functional Optical Camoflauge! articulated hands! the flywheel to the GN Drive spins and the GN Bazooka lights up!
    Also, the 1:100 scale Tieria's eyes glow gold too.

    Nemo, deliver the punchline please.

    Unfortunately all these categories cover pretty much anything good... so yeah, I still expect my Virtue to be announced as a p-bandai exclusive, because f*ck me for liking nice things.

    It's obvious Virtue will be a normal release and a Trans-Am edition will be the exclusive. How they plan to pull off the Nadleh will be the 00 equivalent of the FAZZ.

    I'm still waiting on the PBandai 00F/V MSV designs.

    I know, I'm just bitter because everything else that looks any good now is an exclusive any more. Meanwhile the Build ect line reeks of cheap cashgrab expansion sets, and it feels so godd*mned minimal effort... So the prospect of anything I could potentially like being anything other than an exclusive any more feels completely laughable.

    On that note, when is the HG Plutone due to come out? It's the one pban thing that I PO'd awhile back and then just utterly forgot it existed.

    Looks nice. Too advanced for me, but still great-looking.

    On one hand, I'd rather hedge my bets on a Perfect Zeong than have to double-dip (especially since I'm not really a huge fan of the Zeong, but the RG details make it look pretty cool), I'm sorta concerned that it wouldn't have all the nice thruster effects, to make you want to double-dip.

    Fixed forever.

    Wow. I wasn't expecting the 30mm Hangar Base display parts with the Final Shooting version, but I did call those effect parts.

    Who wants to bet the Advanced Joint parts will be its hands?

    P.Bandai Perfect Parts are a given like Double Fin Funnel/HWS.

    If not the hands in their entirety, at least the fingers. I can almost guarantee that much, considering how tight and seamless the finger joints look.
