BLOG: Super MiniPla Xabungle – Work in Progress #1
|As teased via Twitter, for the two people that follow me, the next builds would be the Super MiniPla Xabungle set. They’re builds rather than just a build since a set includes the Xabungle and two walker machines. Two boxes were also purchased because of reasons previously mentioned.
Given this collector’s sparse but disappointing experience with minipla, there’s quite an expectation going in. And while color separation is leagues ahead of standard minipla sets, it’s still below Gunpla quality. The plastic is denser, the molding isn’t the sharpest and there isn’t much surface detail. But then again this is for an 80s super robot so the latter might be intentional.
Either way, the build is interesting and a welcome change from Gunpla. Currently doing box 1 of 4 which is primarily the Bungle Skipper / upper half of Xabungle.
