|Going straight to #2 for this Work in Progress series since this post pretty much covers what has been built before.
So yeah, finally got to resume building the HGAC Wing Gundam Zero after all the debacle and shenanigans that ensued thanks to this guy. To summarize, the current progress mostly involved preparation of parts for assembly and top coat. These then involved applying panel lines and painting the necessary details, though the former can’t exactly be seen because this collector likes those lines subtle… subtle.
Hopefully, the next part should have the lower section already done, with the remaining build to focus on its iconic wings and accessories.
|During the end credits of GUNDAM Reconguista in G, additional variants of the G-Self were revealed, including those that would actually change the color of its Photon Frame armor. Variable Phase Shift armor anyone?
On the left is a GN Arms-like mobile weapons platform that changes the blue parts of the G-Self to red, matching its dominant color scheme. Then on the right is a huge backpack deal that then gives the G-Self a Char Aznable-esque pink color. Both are still unnamed, but will most likely get stand-alone units, unlike the Space Pack because of their difference in colors.
This goes to show that Tomino has removed his previous grudges and is now embracing the Bandai marketing scheme, and is going with it pretty well.
|The next main Gundam series to follow the poorly received Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, GUNDAM Reconguista in G marks the return of original creator Yoshiyuki Tomino after doing ∀ Gundam, and his style is really apparent in these first two episodes.
Much like Tomino’s previous work, the pacing can be a little jarring with so much introduction and exposition. That said, the exposition was done naturally and didn’t felt like a huge information dump.
That said, the series has a much lighter tone than any previous entry, sans Gundam Build Fighters and has a very lively vibe. So yeah, this looks like to be a very promising series. Hopefully the same can be said once its FEATURE entry is being written down.
|From all the GUNDAM Reconguista in G teasers and trailers released so far, the G-Self (or Gundam G-Self) is often seen utilizing two option units. First is the Atmospheric Pack, which is included in the regular HG Gundam G-Self release. And second is the Space Pack, which Bandai is going to sell as an add on kit to the earlier G-Self release.
Aside from the Space Pack itself, the set will also include a more iconic red-and-white shield, another beam rifle, and a Core Fighter which the G-Self apparently has. Though as with similar High Grades, this will be non-transformable.
Random Question: Will the G-Self have a mid-season upgrade?
|So here’s how the box art of kits appearing in Gundam Build Fighters Try will look like. A thing to note about the Build Burning Gundam is that it breaks the trend of dominantly blue colored lead Gundams.
With a primarily fighting style based on martial arts, it also looks like the kit won’t come with usual beam saber and shield combo. Instead, they supplement it with a bunch extra manipulators and fiery effect parts for those dynamic attacks and poses.
The question now is, should this collector get two copies of the kit? One to build with the blue and the other with the red clear bits. Will it be that much of a hassle to swap these parts?
