Though I am not very familiar with the role the Tallgeese played in the Wing series I am not oblivious to the popularity of this Mobile Suit. Gunplars have been bemoaning the lack of a Master Grade version of the Tallgeese for years. 2012 was the year Bandai informed everyone the kit was under way and in this first month of 2013 the 1/100 MG Tallgeese I EW kit is finally in fans hands.
This is where I confess to not being particularly fond of the look to the Tallgeese. To me it seems really bulky especially with the thunder thighs however even I can admit that this suit looks badass on the box art.
You can already pick out in this photo the very Tallgeese-y parts such as the shield parts and some of the leg armor. There is a little surprise in one of the runner bags.
What’s in that little yellow bag?
Why it’s a little yellow spring? Any guesses? The rifle? The head?
Here are the included stickers including a rather large set of foils.
Same cool artwork.
“Gundam W Another Aspect” Love it.
And here’s the guide for all those markings.
If the Tallgeese turns out to be as good as the Heavy Arms and the other recent wing kits there should be many happy Gunplars out there. I’m sure everyone is like me and can’t wait to get started.
edit: And the day after the Tallgeese arrives in stores Bandai announces the limited edition Tallgeese II. They don’t waste any time do they?
