Gaijin Gunpla

It’s been a while since I worked on a Gundam AGE kit, the last being last year’s 1/100 MG Gundam AGE-2 Dark Hound. Well, the big release for the month of June (if you don’t count the 1/72 VF-1A/S Valkyrie (Hikaru Ichijo)) is the 1/100 MG Gundam AGE-2 Double Bullet, which I think might just be the best itineration of the AGE-2 out there.

Box Art:

Pretty sweet box art. They show the suit and the transformed version which while it doesn’t look as sleek as the AGE-2 does look kinda cool.

Box Contents:

Eight bags of parts, some of which contain cool things like effect parts.

Look at this sucker (there are two in total).

Markings.

And there is also this insert advertising the Gundam AGE themed Gundam Weapons magazine due out next month.

The reverse side advertises the crazy sword/rifle contraption that will be available with the October issue of Hobby Japan. It’s called the Caletvwlch and is meant for the HG Astray kits.

Nice.

There is also an advertisement for the Blu Ray release of Mobile Suit Gundam.

The text on the left side (あと何回、観たくなるんだろう) could be translated as, “How many more times will you want to watch it”.

Manual:

Being a transforming kit the last page folds out and shows the transformation process.


And of course there’s the marking guide.

I’m looking forward to putting this guy together.

But I think I’ll try to finish up the PG Red Astray first before starting on this bad boy.

If I’m lucky I’ll get both done before next month because July looks like it will be a pretty awesome Gunpla month.

    Wow that reviews looks so far away… anyways great to see you build that, loved the hg kit and ms anime performance. I see those red wing binders popping up in a couple of reviews, that would make for a nice “extra” indeed though not anime cannon… keep us informed.
