PG Banshee Gundam - WIP Update

Body: 

It's been a long while since I've posted anything Gunpla related. This has been partly because I've been super busy, and partly because the kit I've been working on has been yet another Perfect Grade.

G Gundam gets BluRay box sets!

Body: 

 

Finally, the news I've been waiting for... G Gundam is finally get a remaster and BluRay release!

G Gundam will be released in two box sets, ¥34,000 a piece... which is roughly $310 US. If you didn't already know, Japanese BluRay box sets are ridiculously expensive for various, somewhat nonsensical, reasons. Good news is that there are some subbing groups who will likely release rips, potentially with the original US dub for your nostalgic pleasure. Still no word on whether RightStuf/Sunrise/Whomever will be releasing it stateside. I think it's a sure thing we'll be getting one, but probably not until mid to late 2017 at the earliest.

The first Japanese box set will be released September 27th, while the second comes out November 27th.
