407# Gundam Fix FIguration #0013 PLAN303E Deep Striker

Yesterday I sacrificed one whole weekend to go to Sungai Wang as to see the mid year Gunpla challenge. I've never been to the event before, and I know I'm not qualified yet to take part, either.

Shall talk about the event next time.

After that I went to Lowyat as to get a laptop cooler pad. Before I could go up to the shops for that purpose, my friend dragged me to a hobby shop which I've never been to before.

And I spotted this;



I could not believe my eyes, really. This G.F.F. is been out of market few years back. There was a second batch production and it has sold out in a short period.

I thought this was a fake but as far as know there are no fake G.F.F.s around. Not practical to fake it since it requires full painting and detailing.



So, there was only one unit left sitting there on the shelf. I took it down and studied it. No doubt it's a brand new. Not far away there were a few other different G.F.F.s sitting there.

First time I see so many G.F.F. models in a shop. Shops in msia don't usually sell them because of its high price and hence the low popularity.



But nonetheless, due to its completed paint job and detailing, this series is still very popular through out the whole world.

Furthermore, this series has those models which are not made into gunplas, including this Deep Striker unit, where G.F.F. made it possible.



I was really glad to see this. I thought that I won't be able to own it forever and never.

In fact I planned to get a set of Detroit Metal City Revoltech models, 1 set of 3 with discounted price of RM100 (Normal price RM225). But I guess I'd prefer this G.F.F. anytime than anything.

What made this model a must grab is that it was selling at a lower price than its original 9,800 yen price.



I'm not sure why this huge box will sit there for so long without being purchased by any collector out there, but I'm certain that now this model has found its owner.

Although it is a completed model, but the pieces need to be assembled together as to become the 400mm size model. Since it's going to take quite sometime to assemble the Deep Striker form, I won't be assembling it at the moment.



My second G.F.F. so far. If I'm able to spot the others like the Ex-S Gundam, GP04 Stamen and Z plus [Bst], no doubt I'll going to get them. But chances of me seeing them here will be very tiny. And it shall depend on my financial status too at the very first place.

Anyway, this model can be converted into 4 forms. Firstly the basic S Gundam, then the Ex-S Gundam. Thirdly the S Gundam with Booster unit and finally the ultimate Deep Striker unit.



Usual G.F.F. like the Gundam Mk-III I have has only 2 plastic layers of parts. But this Deep Striker has 7 plastic layers of huge parts.

Definitely a killer. I'll need to restore my damage for at least half a year. Being a 9,800 yen model, I bought it for 9,600 yen. But guess the price was before the yen price increase.

And there are 3 Revoltech Evangelion models which I plan to get during June. I guess those have to be postponed.
