    1. You must understand how much height this unit have, how much runner, parts, gimmick, and box size for contain this kit. When A-pack are massive, its armed module can be molded in single large parts. As for penelope, doubt bandai will do half-assed color separation for this kit, and it'll need more runners. As for MG, i'm sure it'll reach ten-thousand yen range price.

    2. It's expensive because the Penelope is a rather massive mobile suit. The Odysseus Gundam alone has a head height of 26 meters, 4 meters taller than the Nu Gundam. Add to that the bulk of the FF Unit, and it's understandable why it's priced as it is.

  8. See those red bits? They are most likely stickers, so get your paint and brush ready

    1. Not necessarily stickers. At this price point, they need to be cautious about flaws that impact sales. The moulds for this thing didn't come cheap...

  9. Penelope before Xi? I guess this will work out. Hype!

  10. I only want the gundam Odysseus. Who's willing to split the price with me and you can have the minovsky craft all to yourself πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  11. Hope the Penelope is loaded with complete color separation like moon gundam with a price like that they might as well go all the way with the color seperation and load it full of gimmicks.

  12. Sigh all included accessories seem like confirmed already but no detach funnel missiles? WTF, even HG Qubeley and Kshatriya has all funnels removable..

    1. If I were to guess, they're gonna save that for closer to the release of the first Hathaway's Flash OVA.

  14. I love how so many are complaining about the price and yet they don't even realise how big this unit actually is πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ do you homework guys first

    ReplyDelete
  15. So I presume most people will buy 2 sets of HG Penelope Gundam so that you can have both the Penelope and Odysseus Gundam? Also, Bandai is probably going to make HG Xi Gundam a P-Bandai based on this right?

    1. 1. People can easily remove the flight unit from odysseus so no need for second penelope.

      2. Penelope and Xi are DIFFERENT unit, and it won't be p-bandai because the protag status.

      Delete
    2. No, I’m pretty sure Xi Gundam is going to be a retail release.

      Delete
    3. That seems a bit silly considering xi and Penelope are the main suits of Hathaway's flash, with xi being the main titular suit of the story

      Delete
    4. @Gyutyura This is a late reply, but hey Gyut...errr... Water Jutsu. You thinking that HGUC Xi will be a P-Bandai is laughable. First of all, it is the lead Gundam of Hathaway's Flash so making it an exclusive is bad for business. Also, not everyone has your "buy everything" mindset so I'm sure there'll be customers who will be fine with 1 Penelope only. After all, there are other awesome Gunpla in the market. How about you, have you already built a kit from your box fort? You just burning money for buying tons of boxes.

    5. I'd bet not, if only because it's the mobile suit of the namesake protagonist for a theatrical OVA release. I'd have agreed with you otherwise...

      Delete
  16. Why would it be p bandai? The Xi is the star of Hathaways Flash, the main character's mobile suit if I'm not mistaken.

  17. Large simple-assembly HG pieces doesn't make up for articulated complex-assembly MG pieces. Size comparison isn't that convincing. It's like selling HG 1/100 Zaku warrior at same price as MG 1/100 Zaku warrior based on plastic raw material by weight.

    1. The price are according to how much runners were made, more runners mean more expensive. The cost of iron cast for one runner is so damn expensive. It is why Bandai like to remold same kits over and over again.

      Second is easier to guess, more bigger plastics used more expensive the plastic kit will be no matter how advanced or ancient the kit is. The HG Penelope is almost at MG Sazabi size which is at good price range. Dunno why people upset about HG being so expensive when we already got more expensive HG Neo Zeong and Dendrobium Orchis.

      This kind same people thinking why the upcoming RG Phenex is so damn expensive just because the previous RG Unicorn variants are far more cheaper. Without ever look at how much gold coating plastic cost? So laughable.

  18. Know what's funny? You can buy the golden coating of that new RG Phenex for the same price of this kit. Not the mobile suit itself, just the paint they use to coat the kit.
