P-Bandai - MG 1/100 MS-06FS Zaku II (Garma Zabi Custom Ver.)

Sieg Zeon! Following Dozle Zabi's elaborately decaled Zaku II comes the custom mobile suit of his brother, Garma Zabi. At first glance, besides the colour scheme, there are not much differences between this and the regular Zaku IIs. However, with closer inspections, one may notice that there are actually 4 slots on its head - that's right, this variant of the grunt suit synonymous with Zeon is equipped with 4 vulcan guns. In addition, Garma's Heat Hawk is highly customized, giving it an almost steam-punk design. 

Along with a set of water transfer decals, this is as much as what P-Bandai offers for the royal Zeonic hero.

Special Delivery from Cardass!

As documented earlier, I have been immersing myself in Gundam Duel Company, a multi-platformed hybrid card game across traditional desktops, iOS and Android (a marketing gimmick made possible because the game play requires only an internet browser with a working internet conenction). Besides making the initial purchase of the starter packs, I have been steadily buying their booster packs to beef up my deck (and I am still losing at an alarming rate).

One of the game's features is to participate in PVP card battles with other random players around the world and depending on the tournament you participate in, takes 1-2 days to complete. In winning x/6 battles spanning over a 24 hour period, you will either continue to the next tranche (if you fulfill the required "x" number of wins and the tournament takes 2 days) of the tournament or win an exclusive in-game card (You can choose to win a maximum of 3 of the same card by rejoining the tournament again). Now this isn't the sweet point of this post. The unique thing about this game is for a fee of USD2, P-Bandai and Cardass gets the cards you have won (you can combine shipping up to 4 cards) delivered right to your doorstep! Why would you need 3 of the same cards? Because the cards can be stacked in the future (it was marketed but has proven yet to work) for power-ups.

I tried this service on 2 of the cards I had won earlier and have just received these special packets in my mail. If you are one of the players, hurry up and place your orders before the stock runs out!

Now tell me that isn't geekily cool!

Bandai's Plamo And Gunpla Release Schedules - September 2014

It's September - the last month of the third quarter! Releases this month are a mixture of plasticky goodness which includes a new grade cast in 1/100 scale.

Featuring Nightingale as the first candidate of the Reborn-One Hundred, this new grade from Bandai seemingly fills in the gap between a no grade and high grade Gunpla. As the first release of its grade, much of what it offers still remains unanswered.

From the SD/BB series, we have the gold painted Unicorn Unit 03 Phenex - a MS that wasn't featured in the OVA and up till now, was only regularly released in MG form. 

In the HG line, we have the stiletto-ed ZII Gundam, a personal favourite of mine which in my opinion, looks more menacing than the Zeta Gundam (which itself had already taken position in the HGUC line for a long time). Following the gradual slowdown of releases for GBF (Yes, there is still one this month), Bandai seems to be preparing us for its new anime series with the release of its first kit - the Gundam G-Self. The design has yet to grow on me, but that may change if the anime captures my attention.
