BLOG: HG Gundam Local Type – Straight Build Preview
|Today’s batch of hobby magazine scans includes a preview of how the HG Gundam Local Type (yes, that’s the official name) will look straight built. It’s simple design and color distribution will lead to an almost color accurate kit out of the box, only needing a few touch ups of gray. The head unit can also be built with the option of attaching the visor piece.
To those unaware, Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN MSD retcons the Gundam Local Type to be the predecessor of the Gundam Ground Type when the latter was supposedly built using parts meant for the RX-78-2 Gundam. Regardless of its place in continuity, the Gundam Local Type looks great and is an automatic purchase.
