BLOG: HGBF Build Burning Gundam – Box Art

HGBF Build Burning Gundam - Box Art So here’s how the box art of kits appearing in Gundam Build Fighters Try will look like. A thing to note about the Build Burning Gundam is that it breaks the trend of dominantly blue colored lead Gundams.

With a primarily fighting style based on martial arts, it also looks like the kit won’t come with usual beam saber and shield combo. Instead, they supplement it with a bunch extra manipulators and fiery effect parts for those dynamic attacks and poses.

The question now is, should this collector get two copies of the kit? One to build with the blue and the other with the red clear bits. Will it be that much of a hassle to swap these parts?

BLOG: "Fun to build GUNPLA"

Really appreciate the effort on Bandai’s part to show that Gunpla is not just a Japan-only thing.
And yes, it is fun!


BLOG: 54th All Japan Model & Hobby Show – Frame Arms Girls… or… FAG

Kotobukiya - Frame Arms Girls... or... FAG The 54th All Japan Model & Hobby Show is Japan’s premier showcase of upcoming hobby and model-related products. It went from Sept. 26 to 28 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. [Official Website]

Not to be left behind with the mecha musume trend thanks to lines such as Konami’s Busou Shinki and Bandai’s All Girls Project (AGP), Kotobukiya has now joined the bandwagon with their new Frame Arms Girls line… or as its unfortunate acronym, FAG.

Much like the Frame Arms line, Kotobukiya is hoping that the absence of a supporting fiction won’t stop people from getting FAG figures.

Damn, they could really use a better name.

54th All Japan Model & Hobby Show - RG Wing Gundam Zero EW The 54th All Japan Model & Hobby Show is Japan’s premier showcase of upcoming hobby and model-related products. It went from Sept. 26 to 28 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. [Official Website]

Aside from the elephant in the room that is PG Unicorn Gundam, also on the show floor is another anticipated kit, the RG Wing Gundam Zero EW and it looks… angelic.

Also on display is the internal frame used by the kit. Known as the "Zero Frame" it is meant to be used by four more Operation Meteor kits — i.e. they’ll release RG kits of the other Endless Waltz Gundams.

    Release Information: Dec. 2014 · ¥2,700

Still no love for the TV designs.


BLOG: (Today’s) Tomorrow’s Robits – Iron Men

(Today's) Tomorrow's Robits - Iron Men This is Today’s Tomorrow’s Robits – posts that showcase CATALOGUE-related acquisitions … yada-yada-yada IRON MAN!

Cleared up the Private Warehouse at HobbyLink Japan and look who’s left. In what seemed as bids to determine the better Japanese Iron Man manufacturer at the 6" (1/12) scale, Bandai and Max Factory released their figures (albeit different armors) almost at the same time.

Max Factory first announced their Figma Iron Man Mk.7 as a pseudo follow up to Bandai’s Iron Man Mk.6, which the latter countered with the S.H.Figuarts Iron Man Mk.42 from Iron Man 3.

That said, the Figma has a higher price tag and even has a more expensive special version available. On the other hand, the S.H.Figuarts comes with a sofa… nobody can top that!
