Gaijin Gunpla

The long-awaited day has finally come to pass and now in my possession are two kits I couldn’t be more excited about; the 1/144 RG RX-78GP01 Gundam GP01 Zephyranthes and its bro the 1/144 RG RX-78GP01Fb Gundam GP01 Full-Burnern. Rather than do a separate post for each kit I thought I’d group them together because not only is it more efficient but it seems unnatural to part these two kits.

Both are, or course, awesome as we’ve come to expect from the RG line. It’s funny how we know exactly what the box art will be but we’re still impressed every time. Notice how the lighting is different on each box. Nice touch.

Box Contents:

Zephyranthes

Full Burnern

The same but not the same. It’s worth mentioning that the Full Burnern box feels noticeably heavier but maybe we can chalk that up to those huge upside-down cowbells on its shoulders.

Though most of the stuff found in the boxes are common between the two the inserts in each box were different.

Zephyranthes

A mini-booklet promoting the MG RX-78-2 Ver 3.0 (which I know a little something about) and promo for the Blu-ray of the original Gundam.

Full Burnern

Gundam Breaker and something for the Gundam Online game.

My busy weekend just got busier.
