HG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 Ver. G 30th & BB Senshi TV Anime Color Ver. Now Available

Two new Gundam RX-78-2 kits now available on Hobby Search:

HG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 Ver. G 30th - 1,200 Yen.

Even though the actual design is based on the 1/1 scale statue built at Shiokaze Park, references are still made to the original Gundam anime. I do feel that the HGUC version released some eight years ago has better resemblance to the design as seen in the anime, which is why the design was inherited by the MG Ver. 2.0 release.

BB Senshi Gundam RX-78-2 (TV Anime Color Ver.) - 800 Yen.

New clear sticker included. The shield is entirely in gray as it sits on the same runner as the rifle. A foil sticker for the entire surface of the shield is included, but it's not going to be pretty for the back of the it I suppose ^^;

Since the two runners other than the one for the rifle and shield are reused from BB236 Perfect Gundam, which is 1,000 Yen inclusive of all the armors and weapons for Perfect Gundam, plus an original Pegasus White Base shaped base to mount all the parts, 800 Yen for Gundam RX-78-2 alone is a little ... ^^;

The next release will be BB Senshi Sangokuden Tenshouryu Koumei Nu Gundam on the 16th (exactly one week from now). The price is 1,260 Yen (inclusive of tax).
