While I am still customizing two kits as of this writing, I went to a recent Otaku Expo here in the Philippines. While enjoyed taking pictures of and with wonderful and beautiful cosplayers, I managed to pick some kits (mainly and RG Destiny ang Wing EW) and also managed to spot two nice Gundam Converge figures:

I have been planning to get Gundam Converge figures for a while now. I just couldn't find a good one to get but then a few hours before we left the expo, I saw these two on the Wattatoys booth. It was like destiny/fate for me to see these two. They are also properly priced. It's like they were said to have turned to Minovsky particles by the end of the Char's Counterattack (U.C. 0093) but returned in this form for me to get them xD. Anyway, these two, I believe, are must-haves for a UC lover like me and you should not just buy the other one, they must be both as a pair or else Lala Sune will be crying her newtype ass off. Getting these two made me more excited than getting the RG kit above. Given so, let's look at how it is presented here.
Converge figures come partially assembled and already pre-painted and requires a minor final assembly.

|No. 121 - Sazabi|
The FiguresSo without further delays, here they are in assembled form:
Since I was a kid, I already got the SD version of these two when it came out in the late 90's. I really loved the Nu back then and loved the story behind these two mobile suits. Finding them in this form is truly nostalgic for me. These two suits are in my top favorite mobile suits that the Gundam universes has ever churned out. It features the last suits that eternal rival newtypes Amuro and Char piloted - until they went MIA or something. Having them in this easy-to-love form is a plus even for a plastic modeller like me. I already built the Sazabi last 2014 and I already have the Hi-Nu in the stockpile, but seeing these two side by side makes me want to get the Nu Ver. Ka too.
I really would suggest modellers out there to get Converge figures as well - they really are kind of inspiring to have in display. I actually feel like getting the the GP01Fb-GP02 Converge package I saw as I also love those two suits.
Anyway, I hope this inspires you as well. Please come back again another time as I will be posting the WIPs on my 2 parallel customization projects. See you all again soon :)
