BLOG: HGBF Denial Gundam – Prototype Shots

HGBF Denial Gundam - Prototype Shots Bandai has recently displayed a prototype shot of the upcoming HGBF Denial Gundam at Gunpla Expo Japan Tour 2015 Nagoya. It was in full color though it just stood there, no display of accessories and/or weapons.

So Bandai released more prototype shots of the kit, albeit uncolored but highlighting one of its gimmicks — the hair. The kit will include bunch of effect parts to provide multiple display options for the… hair. It will also include flame effect parts much like the Try Burning Gundam, though they’ll be obviously violet.

Hopefully it doesn’t parts form as much as the Try Burning Gundam that two kits must be purchased, one for each mode.

BLOG: Through the Eyes of "Blue-Eyed Casval"

Hot Guntank to Guntank action!

Went to the theater earlier for a local screening of Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN I, Blue-Eyed Casval, and it was great. Not the best but definitely sets up the characters of Char Aznable/Sayla Mass and how everything began.

It is not as serious as Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn but tells a serious story of how a family fell apart due to politics and an impending war. These light moments were directly pulled from the manga and didn’t feel out of place. Ramba Ral and Hamon were definitely a treat along with Artesia and how her innocence is steadily being tainted with the horrors of war.

Oh and there weren’t really much mobile suit battles apart from the opening act and these Guntank enounters, with the former placed primarily to sell that new HG Zaku II.

The story continues with Artesia’s Sorrow this autumn.

Box Art Extravaganza Sieben It’s the Master Grade that everyone’s been waiting for, in the display that everyone will likely go for. Headlining this batch of box art reveals is the MG Gundam Double X in all its deployed Twin Satellite Cannon glory.

As a bonus, this kit has been loaded with hardpoints to be compatible with the old HG 1/100 G-Falcon set. There are also rumors floating around that Bandai will be re-releasing this old kit with additional marking seals as a Bandai Hobby Online Shop exclusive. Though until an official announcement has been made, treat this bit with a grain of salt.

BLOG: 1/144 Petitguy [Burning Red/Lightning Blue/Winning Yellow/Mirai Pink]

1/144 Petitguy [Burning Red / Lightning Blue / Winning Yellow / Mirai Pink] Ever since the Beargguy III [San] was released, many considered it to be the cutest Gunpla out there. Then Gundam Build Fighters Try came and introduced the Petitguy… god it’s really cute!

It also doesn’t help that the series’ 2nd ending theme features four of these little guys in different colors dancing. Capitalizing on the "awwws" that has been generated, Bandai is going to release 1/144 scale Petitguy kits in four different colors — Burning Red, Lightning Blue, Winning Yellow, and Mirai Pink. Each will come with a similarly-colored display base that’s shaped like a puzzle and are meant to interlock with each other.

Gotta catch ‘em all!
