Normally I don’t “advertise” for anything/anyone on this blog but this is something newsworthy for those who are interested. The RG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam will have an exclusive debut at the San Diego Comic Con on the same day as its release in Japan (so you can buy it at the same time with your Japan buddies). That day being July, 22nd… two days from this post. The RG model will be on display (along with many other models) and sold exclusively at the Blue-Fin booth, North America’s sole Gundam model distributor (they supply your US favorite shops like Gundamstoreandmore and Hobbywave). From what I’ve seen at their Anime Expo booth, they do indeed have a great selection and prices were very reasonable and some were great deals ($75 for GFFMC RX-78-3 Gundam? WANT!).
Apparently there’s already a treasure chest of this model in the US hidden somewhere.
Spec shots of the model in English.
More explanations. I also want this model but… I think I’m gonna give the HLJ Gunpla competition a shot to see if I can win one first xD (someone else can keep the MG V-Dash)
Other Comic-Con exclusives.
You can also pick up the Shin Musha Mk II with the tacky flower stickers too if you missed your chance at it during AX (so much for it being a HK exclusive).
