BLOG: HGBF Denial Gundam

HGBF Denial Gundam Less than a week after its debut in Gundam Build Fighters Try, Bandai quickly announces the HGBF Denial Gundam to everyone’s delight.

Awesome design aside, everyone’s curious as to how the Denial Gundam came about, including it’s similar Plavsky Particle storage system to that of the Try/Build Burning Gundam. Some theories suggest that it might be built by the Second Meijin Kawaguchi. What’s certain though is that this mobile suit has existed in the past as the Cathedral Gundam in the side story Gundam Build Fighters A.

Based on this CG render, it looks like the model kit will be quite color accurate straight out of the package, including the ‘hair’.

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side MASHIN> Shinsei Ryujinmaru

ROBOT Damashii &lt;Side MASHIN&gt; Shinsei Ryuujinmaru Following Ryuseimaru, the evolution of the main Mashin from Mashin Hero Wataru 2 is here and is well represented by this ROBOT Damashii figure. This is the Shinsei Ryujinmaru with its simple design and dominantly white color scheme. But don’t let the simplicity fool you as this is one strong Mashin.

And as usual, Tamashii Nations has knocked this design out of the park. The set will also include its signature weapon, the Hoshi Ryuken.

Still need to get both Ryuseimaru and Ryuoumaru to complete this collection.

BLOG: ROBOT Damashii <Side RM> Villkiss

ROBOT Damashii <Side RM> Villkiss Tamashii Nations has opened a special page for CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angels and Dragons and features the Villkiss as the first release in the <Side RM> sub-brand.

Despite what many are saying about Cross Ange (damn it Fukuda!), the Villkiss is actually a good design — if not very reminiscent of the Strike Freedom Gundam as well as the Gundam AGE-2 Normal for its flight mode.

There are many Para-mails and Ragna-mails in the series, even the Villkiss has three color variants. Some might get regular releases like Saramandiine’s Enryugo while most will probably be Tamashii Web Exclusives.

BLOG: HGUC RX-78-2 Gundam & Guncannon [REVIVE Ver.]

HGUC RX-78-2 Gundam & Guncannon [REVIVE Ver.] In celebration of the 35th Gunpla Anniversary this 2015, Bandai will be releasing updated versions of the HGUC RX-78-2 Gundam and Guncannon model kits. Unlike the Master Grade where the original Gundam already has four numbered versions (1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0), the HGUC only has one excluding the HG Ver.G30th as it’s not part of the HGUC line.

The Gundam and Guncannon were one of the first releases in the HGUC line back in 2001, with the latter not receiving any modern treatments until now.

  • HGUC Guncannon [REVIVE Ver.]
    Release Information: June 2015 · ¥1,200
  • HGUC RX-78-2 Gundam [REVIVE Ver.]
    Release Information: July 2015 · ¥1,000

BLOG: Ultra-Act x S.H.Figuarts ULTRAMAN

Ultra-Act x S.H.Figuarts ULTRAMAN Yesterday, VIZ Media announced that they’ll do the English adaptation of the ULTRAMAN manga this August. In what appears to be a perfectly timed response, Tamashii Nations reveals their July offerings, which includes their Ultra-Act x S.H.Figuarts ULTRAMAN figure.

Yes, this figure is going to be collaboration between the people working behind both Ultra-Act and S.H.Figuarts lines.

Now this ain’t your grandfather’s Ultraman as this is a more grounded story (literally and figuratively) with the titular character fighting in a powered suit instead of transforming into this gigantic ‘being of light’.
