Waiting for the Bus: MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Ver. 3.0

So I got anxious and forgot to place my pre-order for my dream Cryska Barchenowa Figma. Now I wait (anxiously, again) to see if GTO has extra stock.

So the other day, I was browsing my reading lists from last week and as usual Gundam Guy has the most amazing Gundam updates.

MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Gundam Ver. 3.0

Here's a preview from the post:






















Here's a side by side with the earlier Ver 2.0 for comparison:




















Aaaand here's a look at the promised expansion set excluded from the deal, look at that decal sheet:


































Gunplars are claiming the unit to be an upscaled version of the 1/144 RG Rx-78-2 Gundam and would be a waste of time to acquire, however, I wouldn't know since I haven't bought any of the earlier versions!

I think it's all very EXCITING, though! (yeah well, maybe coz' I don't have an RX78-2 yet!)

Here's another blog about Bandai's preview by Q:

I believe this latest version would be a very fine addition to my gundam collection. Nyahahahah. That rhymed!

So I guess, I'm getting this once it's released - or better yet - not forget to PRE-ORDER!
