It wasn’t another two weekends after that I’ve finally top coated the finished model with clear aerosol spray cans I got locally (Originally intended for Mr. Hobby Matte Clear Top Coats but they are way more expensive and are out of stock at the time; FYI: 1 Mr. Hobby Matte Clear = 4 local clear…).
Behold, the Beast of Possibility in its glorious Perfect Grade!
Clad in stark white armour, Unicorn looks terrifically menacing in size, being a 1/60 Perfect Grade and all. Before moving further in, let’s have a look at 1/60 PG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam in its standard—well—Unicorn Mode.
Continuing from earlier post, let us have a glimpse at the many figures and stuff on display during the event.
Kotoburd made an impact (OK, OK that was a lame pun…) during Cosplay Invasion 4, at the figure display booth of which I’m one of the exhibitor of. =w=
After two months worth of uneasy wait since its release date, I’ve finally procured my
holy grail Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam from a comrade supplier, albeit missing its L.E.D. set… D:
According to inside news, Bandai actually had an internal smuggling problem at their China factories, causing shortage of the L.E.D. units worldwide.
There’s also another rumour that Bandai rejected many shipments of the said L.E.D. units due to their lower than usual quality, thus had to freshly remade the units causing massive delays, much to the dismay of Gunpla fans.
Not sure if they are true, but my own L.E.D. set would definitely be delayed to at least May… >,<
Anyway, here’s a look at the packaging of the Perfect Grade…
Bandai spent no minor expense erecting this gigantic display booth all for its flagship Gundam series.
It also served as sort of monument to commemorate Gundam’s 35th annivesary.
After its reveal, masses of info, previews, and various news of the upcoming 1/60 Perfect Grade RX-0 Unicorn Gundam popped up on the inter-webs these past couple of days, inciting intense hype amongst the fans.
From Kura Kura Plamo blog, the Tenchou has already got his hands on the Gunpla and has posted a series of reviews on the kit!
