Tags: Bearbrick, Gundam bearbrick, Pepsi Nex
One of the nice things about Japan is you can get nice Gundam-related stuff like these Bearbricks. This may be old news but they came as freebies with the Pepsi Nex which is a foul, sugar-free concoction. They have strings on top for you to attach to cellphones et cetera. There’s 16 types altogether, which meant that theoretically I have to buy 16 bottles of that nasty soft drink.
Anyway here’s the list of all 16 types: You may notice they’re all mobile suits or characters from the 1st Gundam series.
|1) RX-78-2 Gundam||5) Char’s Zaku II||9) Acguy||13) Sayla Mass|
|2) Guncannon||6) Z’gok||10) Dom||14) Char Aznable|
|3) GM||7) Char’s Z’gok||11) Char’s Gelgoog||15) Gihren Zabi|
|4) Zaku II||8) Gouf||12) Amuro Ray||16) Ramba Ral|
In the end I only managed to get 13 types from the supermarket. I was missing the Gelgoog and two Z’goks. Eager to have all 16, I searched & bought the other 3 from Yahoo Auctions (without the soft drink thankfully). Although up to 3x(!) the normal price, but at least now I have all 16.
So I decided to have fun with my new camera and an old lens (OM Zuiko 50mm f1.8) so here’s the outcome:
Can our heroes get out of this sticky situation? Stay tuned next week
So there you have it. They’re colorful little things, but there’s not much else you can do with it. Now I have to think about those bottles of Pepsi in my room.
