Get Ready for the Crimson Lighting

MG Johnny Ridden's Customized High Mobility Type Zaku II Ver. 2.0 out now on Hobby Search!

Haven't got the chance to look through the instruction manual carefully, but I'm getting this anyway ^^

The red interior of the forearm armor (near the elbow section) is from red foil sticker.

Yellow spikes for the shoulder armors are molded separately. Being the only parts in yellow for the entire kit, I'm really glad that Bandai still decide to mold them in their exact color, instead of asking the modelers to paint it themselves (as in Ver. 1.0).

Just notice that the parts are really red. ^^ Not Char's Zaku II/Gelgoog type of red, but Sazabi's. Very intimidating. ^^

Dom-like leg armors for Zaku II is another huge attraction for me to get this kit. The next possible MG Zaku II Ver. 2.0, Psycho Zaku would have even bigger armor plates I believe.

Two bazookas confirmed. No more part swapping as seen in the Black Tri-Star's Customized Ver.

Also available now is HG 1/144 Ali Al Saachez's AEU Enact Moralia Custom.

It's just Agrissa Type repainted in blue (said that multiple times already ^^;). But I'll get this anyway since I haven't get the earlier (luckily ^^;)

1/35 Mechanic Collection Guren Type-02 Loyal Coating Ver. is also available now.

On the other hand, Momoja Blog has a review on the recently released HCM-Pro Gundam RX-78-2 Jaburo Defensive Battle Ver. Folks who are interested to find out what's the difference between this 'new' release and the previous ones can have a look.

Comparison with the first release, New Marking Ver. and this Jaburo Defensive Battle Ver.

Comes with the a picture of the three children (Letz, Kikka, and Katz) from the original anime. More suited to be included for Acguy actually (as seen in the picture). But in 1/200 scale, the accuracy of the printing is astonishing O_O
