BLOG: NECA Pacific Rim – Series 6 Jaeger Lineup

NECA Pacific Rim - Series 7 Jaeger Lineup NECA has released the Pacific Rim Series 6 Jaeger lineup and guess what, it comes with another Gipsy Danger!

Still based on the ‘Gipsy Danger 2.0′ mold is Reactor Blast Gipsy Danger based on the scene when it’s about to self destruct at the alien homeworld. What’s more interesting in this wave is Horizon Brave. It is the fan-requested Chinese Mark-1 Jaeger and was described as one of the first units constructed.

After this, are there still Jaeger designs that haven’t been given the plastic treatment?

BLOG: HGBF Gundam Tryon 3 – Announced!

The latest episode of Gundam Build Fighters Try just dropped and it’s opening scene will definitely pull some nostalgia, especially those who watched super robot series. Taking huge design cues from the Eldoran and Brave Series comes Gundam Tryon 3. Originally known as the Gundam ZZZ (Tri Zeta), Trion 3 finally made its animation debut after being an exclusive in the card-based arcade game Gundam Try Age

And Bandai doesn’t waste any time in announcing the expected High Grade Build Fighters kit. Will probably paint this in GaoGaiGar colors because… why not?

BLOG: Dynamic Change Shin Getter Robo

Dynamic Change Shin Getter Robo As everyone knows, Getter Robo and its transformation from three vehicles to three varying robot forms is all but anime magic. And while Studio Halfeye did perfect transformation Getter Robo sets, it would cost a leg at best.

So in 2013, Good Smile Company released Dynamic Change Getter Robo — a palm-sized Getter Robo set that perfectly transforms! Unfortunately it, along with Dynamic Change Getter Robo G, completely went past this collector.

Two years later, the line returns with Dynamic Change Shin Getter Robo. Just a question though. Are these supposed to be SD figures or not?

BLOG: HGBF Hi-Nu Gundam Vrabe – Box Art

HGBF Hi-Nu Gundam Vrabe - Box Art Was really waiting for Bandai to release the packaging art for this kit just to see how the name is correctly spelled.

And was totally disappointed on how they went with "Vrabe".

Anyway, this is the Hi-Nu Gundam Vrabe, Tatsuya Yuuki’s customized mobile suit in Gundam Build Fighters Amazing. Spelling conundrums aside, this design looks totally amazing (no pun intended). So amazing that pre-order slots for this kit on various online retailers closed fast.

BLOG: Aura Battler Collection Plan – ROBOT Damashii Route

ROBOT Damashii <Side AB> Dunbine & ROBOT Damashii <Side AB> Billbine [Camouflage Color Ver.]

The CATALOGUE has always had a ‘Plamo-First Policy’ when it comes to various mecha series. However, this mostly applies to Gundam as the others are better represented by figures, newer figures.

Take Aura Battler Dunbine as example. Got the HGAB Dunbine kit back in 2011 thinking as this immediately completes the collection. Unbeknownst to this collector, Dunbine was replaced by Billbine as the mid-season upgrade. Did some research on the HGAB Billbine and found out that it wasn’t that great.

Fortunately, Bandai is reissuing ROBOT Damashii Dunbine by mid 2015 and opening the figure route for these Aura Battlers. As for Billbine, its original design has gaudy colors which was later changed for a more subdued palette. Unfortunately, this was a Tamashii Web Exclusive. So yeah, after market prices it is.
