Bandai 1/144 HG RX-78-02 Gundam [EFF Prototype Origin Ver]

It has been a while since I posted a new blog on a new kit! Hopefully I will be able to complete this over the next few days and publish a new blog over the weekend! Wish me luck!

BANDAI 1/144 HG WMS-03 MAGANAC

Bandai 1/144 HG WMS-03 Maganac

WMS-03 Maganac despite being mobile suits with specifications close for ground and desert use, they have high versatility and their performance surpassed the OZ-06MS Leo. The Maganac was also developed to be operated in cooperation with the XXXG-01SR Gundam Sandrock. Almost all of the 40 units were individually customized to have different abilities and traits such as enhanced melee combat capabilities and communication functions depending on their pilots’ skills and roles.

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-04 Bugu [Ramba Ral]

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-04 Bugu [Ramba Ral]

“This is no Zaku, Boy!!” and yes that is true to a sense as it does not have much of a Zaku likeness. That is the main reason why I really like this design. It is different and yet not too quirky. My plan is to customise this Bugu such that has that beta version look that inspired a Gouf. Or in a way I was inspired by post-apocalyptic “Mad Max” or “Fist of North Stars” biker gang helmet with shoulder spikes! Hence I will be am calling my kit-bashed Bugu “The BUtcher!” swinging a huge Buster sword.

Happy Father’s Day 2021

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).

Bandai SD/CS

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.

Bandai SD/CS

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.

Bandai SD/CS

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.

Bandai SD/CS

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.

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-06R-1A Zaku 2 High Mobility Type (Origin Ver.)

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-06R-1A Zaku 2 High Mobility Type

So since I painted my first Zaku 2 High Mobility with Tri-Star colour I was wondering what I should do with the version. Since Christmas was round the corner and Thunderbolt Gundam came to mind and hence my Origin Zaku 2 High Mobility is inspired by the Psycho Zaku 2 from Thunderbolt.

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-06R-1A Zaku 2 [Black Tri Star]

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-06R-1A Zaku 2 (Black Tri-Star)

A total of fifty-six Zaku 2 High Mobility Types were constructed, with half of the existing Zaku 2 High Mobility Test Types upgraded to the R1-A model. The Zaku 2 High Mobility Type became a highly sought after unit by ace pilots such as the Black Tri-Stars, and Shin Matsunaga. But despite its incredible popularity and high performance, the suit was considered too difficult for rookie pilots to handle, and too expensive for mass production.
