BLOG: Box Art Extravaganza Vier

Box Art Extravaganza Vier The GUNDAM Reconguista in G series of plastic models offer 3D models of mecha that appear in the anime series.

They provide a high perfection level assembled as instructed, and reproduce the accompanying weapons and the characteristics and gimmicks of the mecha in great detail.

Assemble this kit for yourself and experience the excitement of Reconguista in G.

This is how Bandai describes their new HG Reconguista in G line, starting with the Gundam G-Self looking good in what is now the standard looking-at-the-rifle pose. And while only called as ‘G-Self’ in fiction, Bandai will be attaching the ‘Gundam’ moniker for the model kits.

BLOG: Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece 1/6 Iron Man Mark XXXVI (Peacemaker)

Hot Toys - 1/6 Iron Man Mark XXXVI "Peacemaker" Hot Toys continues to bring in more of the "House Party Protocol" from Iron Man 3, this time with the Mark XXXVI (Peacemaker) armor.

Nicknamed for its purpose of controlling riots and maintaining peace, the Peacemaker looks very similar to the Red Snapper sans extending claw arms and a different color scheme.

As with other releases in the Movie Masterpiece line, the figure will be fully articulated with light-up gimmicks. It will also include extra manipulators and a display base for accessories.

BLOG: Soul of Chogokin GX-68 GaoGaiGar

Soul of Chogokin GX-68 GaoGaiGar Many have been gushing about this figure since it was first announced… and they have every reason to do so. A fully transformable, die cast GaoGaiGar figure by Bandai, what’s there to ask for?

So as to further tease and build up the excitement for this release, Tamashii Nations has opened a page featuring Soul of Chogokin GaoGaiGar in all of its King of Braves glory. It features GaiGar, Liner Gao, Stealth Gao, and Drill Gao as they go Final Fusion and form GaoGaiGar. It probably won’t come with effect parts like the Super Robot Chogokin release, but that won’t matter anyway.

That said, prepare your wallets as this awesomeness won’t come cheap.

BLOG: Kotobukiya – Non-Scale RED FIVE [Battle of Ceres]

Kotobukiya - Non-Scale RED FIVE Prior to Kotobukiya announcing their non-scale kit of RED FIVE from Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, those who wanted a representation of this machine would have to opt for the Variable Action release. But thanks to their quite disappointing quality control issues, this announcement is very much appreciated.

As mentioned, the kit is non-scale but stands at around 160mm. It also comes with the weapons and accessories seen in the series (including parts to form its Full Burst Mode), and a display stand.

The first production run of this kit will also include parts as seen in the "Battle of Ceres" episodes.

BLOG: HGUC Crossbone Gundam X1 – Announced!

HGUC Crossbone Gundam X1 - Announced! Ever since the HGBF Crossbone Gundam Maoh announcement earlier this year, many are already waiting for the eventual HGUC Crossbone Gundam release. And after half a year of waiting, Bandai finally does to everyone’s glee and excitement!

As expected, this kit comes with a buttload of weapons and accessories. Do take note though that this is the vanilla X1 configuration as used by Kincade Nau (Seabook Arno). But knowing Bandai, they would probably release its variants as online exclusives or something.

With this, the only lead Gundam they’ve yet to release as a modern High Grade is the… Wing Gundam Zero EW?
