BLOG: Bandai Hobby Online Shop Exclusive – HG Gundam Water/Marine Type
|Still unsure of the English name of this mobile suit and as such, will be referred to as the "Water/Marine Type" until the official English translation is confirmed.
Here’s an obscure variant of the RX-78-2 Gundam that has found its way to Gunpla form. This is the Gundam Water/Marine Type, originally from Kunio Okawara’s MS Collection or M-MSV (Missing-Mobile Suit Variation), and now part of Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN MSD (Mobile Suit Discovery). This kit is a retool of the HG Gundam Local Type with new parts. It also has a well spread placement of colors which begs the question of which will be actual plastic and which are marking seals. Regardless, variants like this are always welcome in the CATALOGUE, making this kit a guaranteed purchase.
