BLOG: PLUM – 1/35 AS-5E3 Leynos Renewal Ver.

PLUM - 1/35 AS-5E3 Leynos Renewal Ver. First released some time in 2011 (and is currently on low stock at HobbyLink Japan), PLUM will be doing a re-release of their 1/35 AS-5E3 Leynos kit as it appeared in the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive game Assault Suit Leynos or Target Earth as it was known in the west.

This is likely the same kit as the original release with possible subtle changes to the plastic color here and there, and some additional decals unless stated otherwise. At 1/35 scale, it stands 15 cm to the top of the head and 17 cm up to the communications antenna.

BLOG: HG Gundam AGE-1 Full Glansa – Work in Progress #1

HG Gundam AGE-1 Full Glansa - Work in Progress #1 Because every Gundam nowadays wants to be an Aile Strike.

Still keeping in the tradition of building two of (almost) the same banana consecutively, here’s the HG Gundam AGE-1 Full Glansa, or at least the Glastron Launcher attached to the vanilla HG Gundam AGE-1 Normal just to do this pose.

As for the actual kit itself, the torso, right leg, and both feet have been built. Not really sure with the out of order construction but it kinda works? Painting isn’t much of a hassle either aside from a couple of areas that needed some blacks, as well as the mandatory panel lines.

Will be targeting to get this kit finished by the weekend but won’t be making any promises.

BLOG: Ultra-Act x S.H.Figuarts ULTRAMAN SUIT Ver.7.2 – Teased

Ultra-Act x S.H.Figuarts ULTRAMAN SUIT Ver.7.2 - Teased Wonder Festival Winter 2015 is coming this weekend and as such, Tamashii Nations has revealed some of the stuff they’ll have on display.

2015 saw the release of the first Ultra-Act x S.H.Figuarts joint figure, the Ultraman Suit from the ULTRAMAN ongoing manga. Those caught up with the books should know that a couple more suits of armor have appeared, one of which pays a homage to Ultraseven — ULTRAMAN SUIT Ver.7.2.

Aside from this teaser image, nothing has been revealed though it won’t be long before Wonder Festival goes live this Sunday.

BLOG: MG Freedom Gundam Ver.2.0 – Colored Prototype Shots

MG Freedom Gundam Ver.2.0 - Colored Prototype Shots Pre-orders have now opened for the MG Freedom Gundam Ver.2.0 and along with it, Bandai released more images showcasing what’s new with this kit.

Aesthetics and proportions aside, other notables include the twin "Balaena" beam cannons that open up to reveal more details. Not sure what purpose these serve but they supposedly look cool? There also appears to be an extension piece attached to the barrel of each cannon.

BLOG: HG IBO Gundam Barbatos (New Form) – Colored Prototype Shots

HG IBO Gundam Barbatos New Form - Colored Prototype Shots The preview for episode 18 of Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS shows that the Gundam Barbatos getting a new form. Not really sure now if there will be a 5th/6th form or it will be one change altogether but regardless, here’s the colored prototype of the aforementioned kit.

These images give a better idea of the new components — including the new side armor pieces, rear forearm weapons, and what appears to be the replacement for its signature mace. The Tekkadan emblem is also placed on top of the new torso armor. It will most likely be a seal though hopefully the surface detail is there to make painting easier. And yes, that thing looks like a T-Rex head on a stick.
