Gaijin Gunpla

I’ve already thrown up all the pics taken at the Chara Hobby 2013 event, but I didn’t mention that I picked up a kit there. I snagged myself the HG Banshee Norn Titanium Version kit. I hadn’t built the HG Norn yet nor do I think I will ever build the MG Banshee Titanium Version kit so I think this is a good substitute for both.

First let’s look at the color of the runners for this guy.

Titanium dark blue looks very nice. And thank you Bandai for including the Gold Mekki.

But what’s this?

Stickers.. and lots of ’em. Hmm. It turns out the majority of them go on the backpack.

Covering up that sexy Titanium Finish with stickers? I’m not sure how I feel about that.


More stickers are used here.

So after you’re done with all those stickers you end up with something that looks like this.

Still not sure how I feel about this.

I do really like the shield for the Norn, though.

And Norn comes with that giant claw which I am familiar with from the MG Banshee.

Once you’re done with the assembling (and stickering) you’re left with quite a few unused parts and in this case some of them are Titanium Finish… ooh.. I’m so Gunpla Hardcore even my excess parts are Titanium.

But more importantly, you’re left with this sexy beast.

    The parts are for the novel version of the banshee (no gold collar)

    Those foil stickers on the backpack are just not good looking at all.
