Gaijin Gunpla

Those lucky enough to be around when a major event happens realise they are witnessing part of history. As this day of days approached I trembled, held my breathe, and waited ready to embrace the historical. Today will live on. It will outlive me.

(If you haven’t guessed I’m talking about the 1/144 HGUC NZ-999 Neo Zeong.)

Usually I start off a First Look post with pictures of the box art. With the Neo Zeong I have some work to do to get to that point. So first let’s look at the carton. As many have just realised, one carton is one Neo Zeong.

Cutting open the top allows me to see this.

Pulling on the handle while jiggling like crazy to get the box to drop off took some time but I’ve been there before and know what it takes. I’m a good jiggler.

Finally, the box was revealed.



Opening the box.

Manual:



You can see how they show you can disassemble the Neo Zeong into sections and put it back into the box.


Check out the runner count.


I lost count.

And finally the runners themselves. There are so many, and they are so large, that I took them out in batches. First a lot of the armour.

Then a lot of the frame.

RG Mk-II AEUG is amazed!

The runners for the Sinanju.

With the bazookas that were promised.

More huge armour parts and some more frame.

In that batch I found the rod for the stand.

After removing everything that I’ve shown in the pictures above a second box was discovered.

Taking from that I see the parts for those arms that hang off the back.

The second batch from that inserted box had more frame parts.

And the stand.

And some white parts. Even though white is the trim these parts are also huge.

The true test in an unboxing such as this, where there is just so much stuff, is if you can get everything back into the box again when you are done.

I am proud to report myself successful.

For this one-time monstrosity Hobbylink.tv’s Gunpla TV will be doing a live stream on their youtube channel starting at 2 PM Japan time. (If we can get the settings right…)

    That box is HUGE! Looking forward for you building it.

  4. Frankon says:

    So the stream starts in about 2hours? crap ill miss most of it due to work :(. Will you be doing a full stream of the build? I think you need more than you plus Brian to do this baby.

  5. Kaboku says:

    wow. can’t wait for the WIP for this. Wonder how long it will take to build.

    I wonder if the red on that Sinanju looks better then the regular HGUC Sinanju? I finally got one I was just curious to see the Neo Zeong one.

    Still can’t believe you managed to build this beast in 2 1/2 hours. I guess it’s big but not overly complicated.

  8. stephen says:

    So an HG Sinanju is included? Way to go. 🙂 still too costly for me thought.

  9. Evan says:

    Got off work last night and somehow wound up watching you build this thing for a good hour plus. It was actually kind of cool. You should do some more live builds for big releases.

    Does the Sinanju have beam saber / axe effects? I didn’t see them in the pics…
