I am not a Gunpla hobbyist. I don’t make a point of collecting model kits. My goodness, I don’t even consider myself that big a Gundam fan (compared to Mechafetish, but then again his faggotry fanhood for Gundam is EPIC). But again I find myself in a toy sale, again by Toys “R” Us Philippines (Robinsons Ermita branch), and fiscal discipline left me faster than you can say MS-06S Zaku II Char Custom.
For PHP 3,500.00 (USD 72.00), I was able to amass FIVE Master Grade UC Gundam model kits!
It’s Christmas Season in the Philippines (which starts in September, don’t ask me why) which means one thing: BIG-ASS TOY SALE!
It’s not even funny. As soon as I saw the sale I dove in the crowd, waifu in tow and made a beeline to the Gunpla pile.
I’m really not into malls, and I don’t like crowds at all. But I found awesome deals, and Christmas came early for ghostlightning.
The purchases: All units are MG (Master Grade: 1/100 scale)
- Gundam RX-78-2 20th Anniversary (Coating Version): PHP 1,000.00 (USD 20.00) It has an Amuro Ray figure!
- RGM-79C GM Type C: PHP 800.00 (USD 16.00)
- MS-05B Zaku I Mobile Suit: PHP 500.00 (USD 10.00) It has a Guyya figure (WhoTF?).
- MS-05B Zaku I Ramba Ral Custom: PHP 500.00 (USD 10.00) It has a Ramba Ral figure (YAY AWESOME)!
- MS-06S Zaku II Char Custom (Coating Version): PHP 700.00 (USD 14.00) It has a CHAR AZANBLE figure (ZOMG)!
Total: PHP 3,500.00 (USD 70.00) The coating versions mean the units have a metallic sheen on the plastic, which should be awesome. Total SRP (non-sale standard retail price): PHP 10,798.75 (USD 216.00); Total savings: PHP 7,298.75 (USD 146.00).
I don’t know if we’ll even have time to build the Gunpla. My only chance is for the Waifu to help.
You be wondering who’s holding the camera. Why Mechafetish of course! There’s something to be said how him being OVER 9000 times more a Gundam fan than I am, he didn’t buy any toys. Not a damn thing. I suck. I suck hard.
RANT: How come Macross toys NEVER EVER EVER EVER go on sale???!!! Macross toys never leave the shelves of the specialty toy shops who almost always sell at inflated prices. That’s why I don’t have any. NOT A ONE.
Well, I certainly couldn’t build any kits yet so I just made my GN-001 Gundam Exias pose on top of their new old friends. It’s late and even with the Waifu to help it’ll take too long to build one and I gotta get up 4:00AM because the Dai Gurren Dan Tennis Team is in a training from hell arc and my backhand isn’t worth spit right now. So I just asked the Waifu to indulge my camwhorage:
