So to celebrate Father’s day, I have seen many people have been featuring a father and child gunpla using SDCS kit with MG scale kits. Thus I thought it would be also appropriate to talk about my SDCS collection with their slightly larger than life HG counterpart (mainly because I do not have any MG kits).
SD Gundam Cross Silhouette (SDCS) is a line of Super Deformed Gunpla kits introduced by Bandai in June 2018. This new series features 2 options to either build a standard 8.5 cm “SD” type kit or adding limbs extensions to make it a taller 9.5 cm “CS” frame with slightly less SD proportions.
The first kit of the series is SDCS RX-78-2 Gundam which is released in late Jun 2018 with a retail price of ¥1,540 and the HG RX-78-2 Gundam (Origin Version) is released in mid-Mar 2020 with a retail price of is ¥2,530.
I repainted the livery of my SDCS RX-78 Gundam with the RX-78-1 Black and White. Similarly I repainted my livery of my HG RX-78 Gundam with RX-78-3 Light Grey and changed the backpack kit-bashed from a GM3.
The SDCS Gundam Ground Type is released in mid-May 2019 with a retail price of ¥1,100 and the HG Gundam Ground Type was from the Ground War set which is released in mid Sep 2009 with a retail price of is ¥2,420.
I swapped my SDCS Ground Gundam with head with a GM head and customised it to look like a Blue Destiny. Similarly I swapped the head unit of the HG Ground Gundam with a GM replacement head and painted the customised kit to look new an improved Ground GM.

The SDCS Wing Gundam Zero EW is released in early Nov 2019 with a retail price of is ¥1,100 and the HG Wing Gundam is released in mid Sep 2013 with a retail price of is ¥1,650. I customised my SDCS Wing Zero using Bandai Sky High Wings. I customised my HG Wing Zero using the wings from SDCS Zero to give it a quad wings configuration.
This is my collection of “child-like” gunpla kits (with SDCS Nightingale and HG Core 2 Gundam.
