I originally saw this kit be advertised for the Gundam Online Expo 2020 through Premium Bandai and it was the ONLY kit that I was unable to snag. It was a sad day….
Until one of my buddies pointed me to Side Seven Exports. So I said screw it and ordered one, here is the link. Though it took forever for it to reach me (understandable), I got my kit and was beyond excited to have it!
During my time waiting for the kit to arrive to my doorstep, I actually saw another builder throwing this kit together but adding a small bit of flair to it! They went through and used Gundam Marker EX on all the crystal parts which inspired me to do the same! Such a simple change but my goodness did it not make it look AMAZING! Sadly I don’t remember who the builder was or I would give them a shoutout! I’ll edit my entry if I find them.
I would strongly suggest to anyone to make this change since the shine from the emerald color matches so well with the coating on the standard plastic. It’s unbelievable in person!
