BLOG: METAL ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Hi-Nu Gundam

BLOG: METAL ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Hi-Nu Gundam With Tamashii Feature’s Vol.8 (Taiwan) happening this weekend, one of the anticipated reveals is the new METAL ROBOT Damashii line, and what the inaugural release will be. And then online leaked pictures happen… so yeah.

Less than a year after its standard ROBOT Damashii release, Tamashii Nations is testing the waters with the Hi Nu Gundam once more. Based on these images, this iteration will retain the bulkier proportions that its non-die cast counterpart had.

No details have been revealed as of yet, though more information should be revealed on the actual show floor.

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Crossbone Gundam X3

ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Crossbone Gundam X3 Everyone totally called on this one. Using the new mold of the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth released a few months ago, Bandai (predictably) is releasing the Crossbone Gundam X3 as well.

For those unfamiliar with the fiction, the Crossbone Gundam X3 is the same mobile suit that got upgraded into the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth after it was damaged beyond repair. So technically speaking, this is a lead Gundam — a must have for the CATALOGUE.

Guess Bandai is differentiating this from the first release with the lack of dash between "X" and "3"?

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Gundam Mk-II [A.E.U.G. Colors]

ROBOT Damashii <Side MS> Gundam Mk-II [A.E.U.G. Colors] Tamashii Nations made a slew of announcements today, one of which is the Gundam Mk-II which will also grace the ROBOT Damashii line following the earlier announced Zeta Gundam.

And it would seem that the designers took some liberties on this rendition, most notably on the proportions. If anything, the figure is quite stylized and has a silhouette veering towards those of super robots. This gives collectors more differentiation in choosing between this release and the available Gunpla of this mobile suit.

Once Bandai releases the Hyaku Shiki, the Gundam Team will be finally complete!


METAL ROBOT Damashii For the 40th Anniversary of the Chogokin brand, Tamashii Nations has been doing quite the celebration. From one-off releases like Hello Kitty, to high quality figures of the Metal Build line. However, high quality always comes with a high price.

Seemingly taking the same page as Super Robot Chogokin for (obviously) super robot properties, Tamashii Nations is launching the METAL ROBOT Damashii line for the real robots. That said, nothing has been revealed outside the still empty official site.
