BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Freedom Gundam

ROBOT Damashii &lt;Side MS&gt; Freedom Gundam It was long after releasing the Strike Freedom Gundam, and after completing the original GAT series mobile suits, Bandai finally decides to do the Freedom Gundam (and eventually the Justice Gundam) as part of the ROBOT Damashii line.

Everyone should be familiar with the Freedom Gundam by now and this figure is expected to be a great representation of the mobile suit from its proportions to poseability.

There’s not much to say about this release so yeah. Oh and wait for the eventual Justice Gundam announcement.

BLOG: Comprehend HG Penelope – Prototype Shots

Comprehend HG RX-104FF Penelope - Prototype Shots After releasing their take on the massive Xi Gundam, Model Comprehend has teased a follow up with the Penelope back in September 2014. With Tamashii Nations doing a ridiculously-priced ROBOT Damashii version, Model Comprehend isn’t to be left behind and finally released prototype shots of this upcoming kit.

Based on these images, it looks like the kit will be sharing the same base body as the Xi Gundam, which is totally fine since it would be covered by the Fixed Flight unit with its humongous armor pieces.

No release information has been revealed but this is certainly a great alternative to the much more expensive ROBOT Damashii.

BLOG: E2046 – MG Gundam Heavyarms EW Conversion Kit

E2046 - MG Gundam Heavyarms EW Conversion Kit To those who think that Gundam Heavyarms EW still doesn’t have enough firepower, then this conversion kit is the one to get.

Site partner E2046 is offering this resin conversion kit for the MG Gundam Heavyarms EW. Not really sure if it was based on an official design or variant but the thing looks amazing when assembled. It will basically add a bunch more parts to the existing kit, including a few more missile pods and leg support units that gives additional footprint to the mobile suit.

Much like any third-party conversion kit, this will require painting and glue for assembly.

BLOG: HGBF Gundam Tryon 3 – Sora Tryon + Umi Tryon + Riku Tryon

HGBF Gundam Tryon 3 - Sora Tryon + Umi Tryon + Riku Tryon Bandai had the HGBF Gundam Tryon 3 on display during AnimeJapan 2015. What made it more interesting is that they also included the individual machines that make up the super robot combiner. After the show, these individual machines have now appeared in hobby magazines as well. These would give a better idea of how the combination works… sort of.

These three are Sora Tryon (sky), Umi Tryon (sea), and Riku Tryon (land). While its base model, the HGUC ZZ Gundam, actually transforms, combining to Tryon 3 involves anime magic that some parts-forming should be expected from this kit. Prompting this collector to get two copies — one as the individual machines and the other for the combined form.

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side RM> Villkiss – Promotional Video

Bandai released a promotional video for their upcoming Villkiss figure from CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angels and Dragons.

Now they’ve shown from previous promotional material that the figure can transform between Flight and Assault Modes and has all the details and ornaments expected from a ROBOT Damashii figure. What caught most by surprise is its price, which at around $70 before shipping is more expensive than most figures in the line. But then again it actually transforms so… yeah.

Oh and as a bonus, the set will come with a clear blue Ange figurine that can sit on Villkiss in Flight Mode. Don’t know if it would still fit in Assault Mode.
