Happy New year to all! Todd is finally back in person with a round of new 2021 releases. We’ve got not one, not two, but THREE new Real Grade kits from Bandai Hobby this month!
Two of the three are the new RG Zeong! You can get the Zeong in both Standard edition and a Last Shooting effect edition which comes with cool effect parts to make a display of the iconic scene from the original series.
The other RG is a new variant of Evangelion, which comes in alongside three new SD Sangoku Gundam kits!
The last shooting version of the Zeong is unfortunately sold out, but the standard release is still available!
In this episode:
– 1/144 RG Last Shooting Zeong Effect Set (Sold out)
– 1/144 RG MSN-02 Zeong
– RG Evangelion Practical Type (Ville Custom) 08 Alpha
– SD Sangoku Soketsuden Tenha Cao Wing Gundam
– SD Sangoku Soketsuden Dong Zhuo Providence Gundam
– SD Sangoku Soketsuden Sun Jian Gundam Astray
If any kits in this post are backordered when you read this, don’t worry — Bandai is great about restocking periodically. But, you’ll want to get your order in to secure a spot in line for the next restock!
Small but nice selection, love that RG Zeong! Really wanted the Last Shooting effect set, but was sold out as soon as I saw it, not sure if it will be available again, here’s to hoping!!

The Sangoku Soketsuden Haro also has slightly glossier green and transclear red arm and leg ports.
Bandai definitely is being very ambitious with the RG MSN-02 Zeong. I think we can expect a P-Bandai release for RG MSN-02 Perfect Zeong.
RG Evangelion Unit 08α looks good! Maybe we’ll get Unit 08β as well? Unit 08β-ICC I doubt would get an RG release.
I believe the next RG release is XXXG-01W Wing Gundam (TV) and then it’ll be RG RX-93-ν2 Hi-ν Gundam.
In terms of future 2021, releases, so far I’m only interested in the MG GN-005 Gundam Virtue.
I had only a few days left on an item in my private warehouse before it ships automatically. Was loosing hope on having something else ship with it as many kits are currently out of stock / backordered. Stumbled on the Zeong effect kit being in stock last night. Lucky me. It did bump my shipping cost quite a bit though. Oh well.
Just so you know, we currently have automatic shipping for Private Warehouse turned off, due to the limited shipping methods abroad right now.

Those effects look sick on Zeong.
Zeong baby woo
There should be one Zeong set
Those Sangoku SD kits are very good, I have som of those. It has less articulation that an SDCS kit, but still good.
Not much stuff, but good stuff.
