I've waited for quite some time, but my most anticipated plamo of the year is finally at my doorstep. Arriving today was the Master Grade Sazabi Ver Ka. After substantial shipping fees and trying to fit the box through my doorway, I got to take a look inside and see what Gunpla madness I have ahead of me. Hit the jump for my unboxing of the Master Grade Sazabi Ver Ka!
