BLOG: Mobile Suit Gundam U.C.0096 —Rising Sun—

Mobile Suit Gundam U.C.0096 —Rising Sun— Hiyon Katsuragi’s monthly Gundam Ace manga Mobile Suit Gundam U.C.0094 —Across the Sky— is set to conclude with its 4th volume this weekend. The manga has the Gundam UC MSV unit Gundam Delta Kai as the main protagonist’s mobile suit.

However, the story will continue as Katsugari will now work on its sequel story, Mobile Suit Gundam U.C.0096 —Rising Sun— which will feature new characters and mobile suits, spearheaded by the Gundam G-First (no relation to the G-Self).

For some reason, this collector really digs this design, like a derivative of the ZZ Gundam. Hoping that Bandai could release the Gundam G-First as an HGUC kit under the Gundam UC MSV banner or something.

BLOG: Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan – HGUC

Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan - HGUC Gunpla Expo (Gundam Plamodel Exposition) World Tour 2014 Japan was held last November 21 to 24 at the Akihabara UDX and featured upcoming Gunpla from the Bandai Hobby Division. [Official Website]

There isn’t much happening from the HGUC front of the show floor, but the two that were announced were amazing regardless. Two mobile suits were added from the Mobile Suit V Gundam roster though both are just variations of previous releases.

The V-Dash Gundam is just the vanilla Victory Gundam with the additional SD-VB03A Overhang Pack while the V2 Assault Buster Gundam combines the Assault and Buster configurations of the Victory 2 Gundam into one mean machine.

    Release Information: March 2015 · ¥1,800

BLOG: Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan – HGBF

Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan - HGBF Gunpla Expo (Gundam Plamodel Exposition) World Tour 2014 Japan was held last November 21 to 24 at the Akihabara UDX and featured upcoming Gunpla from the Bandai Hobby Division. [Official Website]

With Gundam Build Fighters Try in full swing, it’s no surprise that the High Grade Build Fighters line is going strong as well.

This is the Gundam Amazing Red Warrior, a variation of the Perfect Gundam III "Red Warrior", the titular mobile suit of another Gunpla-centric fiction — Plamo-Kyoshiro. Didn’t expect Bandai to even touch these designs for Build Fighters Try but heck, it’s always appreciated!

  • HGBF Gundam Amazing Red Warrior
    Release Information: January 2015 · ¥1,800

So Bandai, where’s that HGBF Perfect Gundam?

BLOG: Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan – HG Reconguista in G

Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan - HG Reconguista in G Gunpla Expo (Gundam Plamodel Exposition) World Tour 2014 Japan was held last November 21 to 24 at the Akihabara UDX and featured upcoming Gunpla from the Bandai Hobby Division. [Official Website]

Aside from the elephant in the room that is the Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam, other reveals on the show floor included a bunch of mobile suits that will appear in GUNDAM Reconguista in G. Catching the interest of this collector are these two though.

First is the already known Assault Pack of the G-Self, that apparently includes armor parts for the leg units as well. Then there’s this white/violet mobile suit that’s reminiscent of this design back when the series is in very early production stages. It also has a confusing name — ジャイオーン (GIOWN?).

BLOG: High Grade THE ORIGIN

High Grade THE ORIGIN Some more stuff from Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN as along with the plethora of Gunpla reveals from the recently-concluded Gunpla Expo World Tour 2014 Japan, is the new High Grade line to cover the mobile suits form the upcoming OVA series.

Surprisingly, Bandai did the Gundam Thunderbolt and didn’t include these kits in the HGUC line. Two kits were included in the reveal. First is Char’s Zaku which seems to be a new mold and uses the same joints as those from the HGBF line. Then there’s this variant of the Guntank that has appeared in the first trailers of this OVA.

  • HG Char’s Zaku II
    Release Information: April 2015 · ¥1,836
  • HG Guntank Early Type
    Release Information: May 2015 · ¥1,836
