It has been four months since the inaugural kit from Bandai’s newest line Reborn 100, also known as RE/100, was released. Bandai kicked that line off with a big bang known as the RE/100 MSN-04II Nightingale. At that time we thought perhaps the RE/100 line would give us the kits we always wanted as Master Grades but didn’t get due to the production costs involved. People were excited. But before we can get another kit like the Nightingale, we have a few smaller ones on the way, the first of which being the RE/100 Gundam Mk-III
The box art was pretty badass when it was shown but what surprised me more was the size of the box. I thought we would see something close to large-box MG size but instead it’s small-box MG.
Everything is able to fit in the smaller box so this picture shouldn’t really surprise, yet with only four plastic bags it reminds me of an HG kit rather than MG.
Foils and markings
You get a good amount of markings for the Mk-III so even if the build doesn’t take a while you’ll have some more work to do when you get to applying stickers.
The inside of the manual shows the breakdown of the build sections, all three of them.
Upper Body, Lower Body, Weapons. No problem.
It folds out near the last page.
The Nightingale took over a couple of hours but this kit looks like you could get through it in half the time.
