Gaijin Gunpla

I have spent some time with the 00 Raiser in the past when I worked on the 限定 ANA 00 Raiser, and the 00 Seven Sword G Inspection which is basically the same kit but without the Raiser.  I have not, however, built the Perfect Grade 00 Raiser so I am using that as my excuse to build the new MG 00 Raiser.  Hey, it’s a Master Grade kit.  Do I even need an excuse?   Each time I think I can pass on a kit I rethink that idea when I get it in my hands.  This is why I have backlog!

Box Art

I’m digging it. One thing I’ve noticed with the 00 Raiser is that when it is standing it looks rather goofy. Like there are too many things out of place. When it is flying, however, it looks fantastic.

Box Contents

Lots of runner here, which isn’t too surprising when you consider what you have to put together. A suit and the Raiser. There’s also a lot of effect parts for the weapons stuffed into this box.


Here’s the 1 LED that Bandai has included but, if you want everything to light up, you need 5 of these things. From appearance it looks to be the same as those for the recent MG kits. Bandai has included a parts order form so you (by that I mean those living in Japan) can order extras. For some reason, the order form is not a throw in like that in the GN-X or Qan[T] but is printed on the manual. I see photocopying in my future.

Manual

And, because I feel strongly that the best way to show off the 00 Raiser is in a flying pose, I need one of these.

The Action Base 1 Celestial Being Version

Now, do I start on this or do I hop back on my PG Strike Freedom?  Or do I finish that other thing I’ve been doing first?

    I have the desire for a Seven Sword/G version for now.

    Thanks for the look! That manual art is nice. I vote you jump into this. You will find time for your SF. I think it will look nicer on your clear action base. Gimmick action bases don’t do it for me.

    MG 00 Raiser is an epic fail. It’s almost exactly the same as HG (in terms of model’s details). Totally plain and a disappointment.

    awesome my friend, hey im putting together a quanta mg right now, but im wiring leds in it for the joints and head and chest, do you know what a proper wiring is for resisters and large and small leds?

    • syd says:

      I don’t know much about LED wiring unfortunately. In last month’s issue of Hobby Hapan (or was it Dengeki?) there was a detailed tutorial about LED wiring. That would be a good source.

    Build it! i think my name says it all about how i feel about 00 kits, and i would love to see it all light up! and Loqes, its a MG, even if the details are the same since its bigger you can make it more detailed thorough panel lining and detail painting.

    I laughed my head off at the quote on the action base.
    “This is our action base” Which is a pun towards Setsuna when he says “I am Gundam” many times in the anime.
