|“Rise! The World is Moving.”
A little under a month before Gundam officially celebrates its 35th anniversary, Sunrise has launched the official portal site gundam35th.net.
The site doesn’t have much content as of yet, though it says that there will be an announcement regarding the next Gundam project on March 20 at 5:00 PM JST. And with Mobile Suit Gundam UC ending in May, speculations kick in as to what would that project be.
Will it be the anime adaptation of Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN, or Yoshiyuki Tomino’s G-Reconquista, or is it something else. Either way, everyone would be eagerly awaiting for the said announcement.

This totally went under this collector’s radar. Busy work schedule not helping at all.
Anyway, a new mecha animation series from Nitroplus, entitled ALDNOAH.ZERO, was announced. Animation production will be handled by A-1 Pictures and TROYCA while the initial staff revealed includes Ei Aoki as director and Gen Urobochi for series composition. Gen Urobochi is mostly known for his intricate storylines and killing off characters, though the latter wasn’t the case in his last mecha series GARGANTIA on the Verderous Planet.
ALDNOAH.ZERO is slated to premiere some time within 2014.
|It hasn’t been that long since the recent RoboCop reboot was shown in cinemas. Not really sure how the movie fared in the box office, but that doesn’t stop designer toy company threezero from dishing out figures from the feature film.
After RoboCop 1.0/3.0 and ED-209 comes EM-208, the drones prominently seen in the movie and was used by OmniCorp for law enforcement before rolling out RoboCop.
As expected from threezero, the figure boasts copious amounts of detail with multiple layers of panels on top of a mechanical frame. Based on these images, the figure will come with two pistols for accessories.
Release and price information hasn’t been revealed as of yet.
