ANNOUNCED: 1/100 MG MBF-P02 Astray Red Frame Mars Jacket (Daban)

Here it is, Daban’s possible 2018 New Year’s release. No Bandai release for the Astray Mars Jacket so far, so this should have been resin kit inspired. If you Googled Astray Mars Jacket, you’d notice that it should have been bulkier. That’s actually the Mars Jacket (or rather Mars Armor) what Daban provides is the Asray model under the ‘Jacket’ plus the nifty backpack weapon it has.

No details yet for the runner previous, but release should sometime next year, Jan-Feb 2018.

PREVIEW: 1/100 MG XXXG-01S2 Gundam Nataku (Super Nova)

Here’s Super Nova’s first foray to the Gunpla Resin kits. This one is a custom resin kit from the ground up. Proportions is way different from the Bandai ones. As you can see through the pictures, the kit has rather long limbs and neck compared to the Bandai counterpart. Personally, this quite throws me off.

Unboxing: 1/100 MG GN-001 Gundam Exia [Repairs 1-3] (Dragon Momoko)

By the time you’re reading this, you might have already known that last September 30, news broke out t hat Dragon Momoko will no longer produce any kits moving forward. All Dragon Momoko stocks you see now may cease to exist by January 2018.

For reasons that Dragon Momoko’s manufacturing plant got shutdown for copyright infringement of Bandai’s intelectual properties aka bootlegging Gundams.

As tribute, I will reviewing this MG Exia Repairs kit which is absolutely wonderful for the package. As in one kit, you’ll be getting the ability to change between modes. Dragon Momoko was generous enough to put in the necessary parts in order to switch modes.

Manufacturer: Dragon Momoko
Scale: 1/100
Grade: Master Grade – Anno Domini

Price: 1200 PHP

Initial Build: 1/100 MG GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X (Daban)

I didn’t realize it until now but Daban’s Double X has more detailed and seems to be taken from a Resin Kit (needs to be verified). As seen here in the initial build photos, it has more panel lines and far more details.

PREVIEW: 1/100 MG MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam 2.0 (Daban)

Daban’s Zeta Gundam 2.0 is a curious case. It is indeed Bandai’s Zeta 2.0 but the externals are from a resin kit. It can be easily noticed as Daban’s release has more panel line details compared to Bandai’s. The innner frame is still the original 2.0 though.
