So I’m finally getting my hands on an SD EX Standard Gundam months after they were released. For those that don’t know, these were released only outside of Japan, the opposite of how things usually work, and so I was left to watch from the sidelines as this line launched. Now, for some reason, Bandai has released them in Japan but it looks like they are only going to be a limited thing possibly just from Bandai trying to move excess stock. That means they could disappear on me quickly so I picked a couple up.
The first one I started on was the Unicorn Gundam.
Inside that small box are two small bags of runners.
And a little manual with your SD Standard Gundam shown on it.
We knew this was released abroad and the manual points to that. The colour guide has english on it.
And there are a few stickers.
Just a few.
There are red clear parts for some areas but the remainder will be red stickers on your white plastic or white stickers to cover some areas of your red plastic. This build doesn’t need a lot of explanation so I think I’ll make it a pictorial WIP.
Here we go!
Stickers cover up most of the red part that makes up the arm.
Alignment has to be precise.
Once finished I tried to pose him as he’s shown in the manual because, let’s face it, they do a good job of making their kits look cool.
That was a fun thirty minutes. The unicorn was a neat build but due to its unique look I’m not sure it is the norm or something different than other SD EX Standard kits. Guess there is only one way to know for sure.
