At last the long wait is over! Okay, maybe it wasn’t such a long wait. This was revealed in May at the Shizuoka Hobby Show which was only three months ago but it sure took a long time for August to get here. As luck would have it, we have a new holiday on the Japanese calendar this year, Mountain Day, which happens to fall on a Thursday. Normally Bandai releases the big kit the week before the big summer Obon holiday but this year that day is now Mountain Day so it looks like Bandai has bumped up the release to the week before that. Which is now!
Behold, the 1/144 RG MSN-06S Sinanju
What stickers would be included with this kit was kind of a mystery right up until the release.
RG standard amount here. Looks like the markings will take some time to put on.
Here is the mekki-plated gold runner that has everyone so excited.
Black parts to go around those gold parts.
The red parts have a nice gloss finish.
And here is the RG B frame runner.
Legs are all one part. Haven’t seen that in some time.
and you can see OH I can’t wait I’m starting now.
Will report my findings!
