BLOG: Box Art Extravaganza Neun
|The 1/100 scale plastic model series offers a lineup of characters that appear in the TV series of Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED Orphans. Their assembly is simple yet the inner frame and movements of various joints are faithfully reproduced to allow the models to strike the same poses as in the animation. It is a series that is sure to fascinate all fans.
Bandai is indeed getting better and better at these descriptions.
After its absence from Mobile Suit Gundam AGE and GUNDAM Reconguista in G, the 1/100 line returns in Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS. And again, it’s not a Master Grade but it does have an inner frame. Was really hoping that they’d include these in the RE/100 line but oh well.
|Next is the box art for the ‘Revive’ HGUC Gundam Mk-II in A.E.U.G. colors. Got to admit, isn’t really excited for this release but will probably get it as a lead-Gundam completionist.
Now the existence of this kit raises a couple of questions. First is its compatibility with the G-Defenser unit from the old HGUC Super Gundam kit. Given that it was with the Real Grade, here’s hoping that it would be the same case here. Then there’s the fact that the Build Gundam Mk-II was released just a couple of years ago. People were also curious if they could use this kit as base instead.
|The last for this batch is a kit that has piqued the interest of this collector but not enough to actually get one. Here’s HGBF Super Fumina in all her cute, mecha musume glory.
The packaging art also reveals more details on the mobile suit that wasn’t seen in its single episode appearance in Gundam Build Fighters Try, including details on the joint areas, skirt armor details, and those beam effects coming out of those rear shield parts.
Okay, if this collector was to get this guy… err… girl, would a matte finish be better for the face parts and those flesh tones?
