I just came back home, tired from all the (real life) stuff happening lately (no, nothing serious, just lotsa schoolwork), opened Ngee Khiong's blog as per usual and saw the best thing I've seen in my life. I don't know if Bandai has magical people in their research department or what but they have outed lots of stuff that I really do want.
Before I continue on with this post, I'd like to say that I already bought some stuff from the recent Momotoys stock that day earlier this week. Haven't bought the one with the dual shiny swords yet but I may or may not get it in the end. Well, we'll see how it goes. Its not like I have to get it but my ABF will feel ronery later. XP
I sadly have no time to build them for now as exams are nearing rapidly and my deadlines for assignments are within 2 weeks. So, for anyone who frequents my blog, I'm sorry to say I'll not be posting much or anything for a while. However, if I do find any free time, I may as well post some stuff up, even though it might not be the usual long posts.
Okay, enough about me, let's talk about what has Bandai done now.
EDIT (14/05/10): Added some additional comments especially for Gundam Harute.
Part 1: 00 Movie Gundams
EDIT: What can I say about the Harute? Ever since I saw the Kyrios way back in season 1, I felt a sense of attraction to the design besides the lovely design for Exia which I liked more. As the transformable line grows, Albulhool to Kyrios to Arios and GN Archer to Harute, I like them even more with each design. Harute shows one of the best designs I've seen thus far for ANY transformable Gundam with its sharp looking design. Together with its dual rifles with a blade edge that also seem to be able to function as claws, it is an instant win. I don't know, when I think about it more, the 00 Qan[T] gets over-shadowed by its own allies except that it features a Twin Drive System and the new Quantum System - which are only great from a plot point of view. Sword Bits are still cool however. I still like the 00 Qan[T] though since it is a (almost) pure melee suit, my favorite style of fighting. Shooting away at enemies are not really to my liking.
Part 2: Looks Interesting
Part 3: Real Grade 1/144 RX78-2 Gundam & Real Grade 1/144 Char's Custom Zaku
Part 4: MG 1/100 The O
Part X: Not Bandai But Revoltech Blade Liger!
Part 5: MG Figureised 1/8 Monkey D' Luffy & Kamen Rider W CycloneJoker!
As for Luffy, its nice of Bandai to be releasing him too. No chances of me getting it though since my budget is tight as far as these crazy great releases are concerned. =3
HGUC 1/144 Sinanju, GM Kai & Delta Plus
MG 1/100 Full Armor RX78-2 Gundam & V Core Booster
Overall, I see a harsh road ahead for us Gunpla-ers and collectors. Many good stuff are coming and our wallets are not safe at all. Looks like I'll need to be more careful with my spending if I want to get them when they come around here.
Okay, that's all for now. Sorry I may not be making any posts for a while (until the end of June) as I'll be quite busy with schoolwork. I may be able to do some fun stuff in-between but I don't think I'll have enough time to spend on my blogs. Don't fret, I'll still reply to comments and check out my blogroll as well as any newcomers who wanna share links.
