Gaijin Gunpla

Seeing the HGUC MS-7B3 Gouf Custom at the 50th All-Japan Model Hobby Show, and all its weapons up close, really got me interested in this kit and building the HGUC Sinanju pushed me over the top. HG’s are Hugely Great (I should trademark that, ya?)

Box contents:

Looks rather 少ない after the Sinanju, ne.


Does look like it’s going to be nicely posable, too.

I was impressed with what Bandai brings with this kit, just like the Sinanju. Plenty of weapons and even extra hands. There’s even the plastic pipe for the Heat Rod.

Next stop, my work table.

    After getting Kshatriya ( my dream since I saw the first episode of the OVA xD ) this will be my purchase. The 08th MS team it’s just a awesome show and Gouf Custom was a badass. Since the MG is expensive, I will getting these in a near future ^^.

    I’m totally sold on this HG. The original MG was my second ever gunpla and while it looks awesome suffers from terrible joints and is almost completely unable to support the gatling shield. By comparison this HG is totally dynamic.

      Hi Sonar,

      The shield for this kit is really heavy as well and it may have difficulty holding it. That said, it appears Bandai put a ‘lock’ of some sort in the shoulder joint to help hold the arm in place when wielding the shield/gatling gun. I built it last night and will play around with it a bit and hopefully have a review up on monday.

    Amazing…Bandai releases HG that’s as attractive as MG’s nowadays…This is one of the must have HG kits that bandai released,considering it is far better than the MG version….Can’t wait until syd release the review…it’s a shame this kit is not yet released where I came from(Indonesia)….By the way,I totally agree with syd saying that HG is Hugely Great!!

      I was all set to take pictures of this kit this morning at work and have a review for tomorrow when, while driving 100km/h on the expressway, I realized I forgot it at home. Review may have to wait until Monday, unless I decide to do it with sub-par pictures.
