BLOG: Volks – 1/35 ATH-Q63-BTS-II SX Blue Knight Berserga [Super Execution]

Volks - 1/35 ATH-Q63-BTS-II SX Berserga [Super Execution] Volks has been slowly but steadily releasing 1/35 kits, starting with the Rabidly Dog, followed by the Scopedog Turbo Custom four-set. This time, they’re doing an online store exclusive for Blue Knight Berserga [Super Execution] (don’t mind the box art spelling) from the novel Armored Trooper VOTOMS: The Blue Knight.

Not really sure how much will require paint but expect some level of work when dealing with non-Bandai kits like this. The kit stands at 145 mm and the first limited run will include a special decal sheet and an actual metal piece for the pile bunker.

BLOG: Medicom Toy – MAFEX Iron Man Mark 44 "Hulkbuster"

Medicom Toy - MAFEX Iron Man Mark 44 "Hulkbuster" A couple of months after this post, this collector still doesn’t know where to get a Hulkbuster figure. Pre-orders have closed for the Chogokin x S.H.Figuarts one, and there’s no release information on the Comicave one.

Then Medicom Toy just dropped the news that they will also do an Iron Man Mark 44 "Hulkbuster" as part of their MAFEX line. This is a great option for a multitude of reasons. Standing at 270 mm, it’s cheaper than Bandai’s offering for one and also has more gimmicks, including an opening chest cavity to reveal a Mark 43 bust.

Here’s hoping that Medicom Toy doesn’t pull an online web store exclusive shenanigan or something.

TRANSFORMERS Titans Return - Leader Class POWERMASTER OPTIMUS PRIME Following the Gundam reveals in Gunpla Expo, Transformers take the stage this time around as Hasbro’s Transformers Brand Team held a Google Hangout and made a lot of stuff for 2016.

The Titan Class Fortress Maximus figure is finally confirmed in Titans Return. Hasbro is also allowing the community to choose between Omega Supreme, Trypticon, and Scorponok as the next Titan Class figure to follow Fortress Maximus.

They’ve also revealed a new Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Prime figure which will be a heavy retool of Ultra Magnus from Combiner Wars. It comes with a Headmaster, Apex, and will be a triple changer (i.e. truck, base, robot) like Blaster as revealed earlier. It won’t have the engine block gimmick like the original but the visual cues are present in robot mode.

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Gundam Barbatos

ROBOT Damashii &lt;Side MS&gt; Gundam Barbatos And if the recent Gunpla Expo reveals hasn’t gotten you covered on your Gundam Barbatos fix, then maybe this will. Tamashii Nations has revealed their April 2016 releases, and one of them is (you’ve guessed it) Gundam Barbatos.

Not much as been revealed by these images, aside from the accessory count which, as of this post, will include the long sword and its signature mace. And unlike its Gunpla counterparts, don’t expect a fully functional inner frame with this release. Or does it?
