This is utterly ridiculous. Altron/Nataku was bad enough. This just means that Sandrock (Kai) EW is gonna be P-Bandai too. Gunpla is the most popular it has ever been. Why is bandai being so greedy with their premiums. Buying a MG Heavyarms and kit bashing it with the old 1/100 HG Heavyarms or Serpent will be FAR cheaper than this premium garbage
blame the bootlegs
What the Hell is Bandai doing with all this premium shit?
It's about damn time!
So Bandai finally unveils the MG Heavyarms Custom, and it's another P-Bandai release. Oh well. At this rate, MG Sandrock Custom will probably be P-Bandai too. I guess it should be expected since Gundam Wing was not the best series in Japan. What about Wing Zero Custom and Wing Gundam Custom? The old versions we have are from like 2001 so it's been like 15 years (or at least 10 I think). I think they should get a release even though I think one or both would end up being P-Bandai versions of the Wing Zero Proto MG that we got not too long ago. Bandai always figures out a way to ruin a fan favorite MG by making everything P-Bandai these days. Why do they do so many? So annoying and expensive.
Welp. Time to quit the hobby :P
Really makes me wonder now when the heck did this P-Bandai garbage started??? I started this hobby late 2010 and I don't remember many P-Bandai releases.
Can someone explain he differece betwee this and the 1/100 thats been out for like 20 years?
Can someone explain the difference between this and the old one...
This is a Master Grade. It has an inner frame, better proportions, better gimmicks, etc. The old one is old. It has poly cap elbow joints which leads to weight issues over time. The MG will not require any paintint probably with the exception of the mask.Point being, this will be the best incarnation of the Heavyarms Kai in plastic model form.
