|Time to go German once again as here’s another round of model kit box art appreciation.
While under the pretense that this kit would go well with the HGUC Silver Bullet, and the ROBOT Damashii Gundam Mk-V EFF Colors to an extent, this collector is still very much on the fence of actually getting this guy. Will probably look for a couple of reviews first before making a purchase decision.
The HGBF Gundam Ez-SR set allows one of the three Team SRCC mobile suits — the Ez-SR Intruder, Ez-SR Eliminator, and Ez-SR Shadow Phantom — to be built.
On that note, definitely need to build the HGUC Gundam Ez-8 after all these After Colony High Grades **nudge nudge wink wink**.
|In 2011, ULTRAMAN, a manga sequel to the 1966 series started serialization. It is written by Eiichi Shimizu and drawn by Tomohiro Shimoguchi (Linebarrels of Iron).
The manga tells the story of Shinjiro Hayata, son of original Ultraman Shin Hayata, who both acquired genes from the ‘gians of light’ and manifested superhuman abilities. To protect the Earth from various threats, powered suits akin to Iron Man were created to maximize the full potential of Shinijiro’s powers. As such, no one grows to a giant warrior in this story.
Currently debating on whether to consider this for a #4000 CATALOGUE entry. But as far as the armor itself is concerned, it looks really good.
|Tamashii Nation 2014 is an annual event featuring current and upcoming releases from Bandai Collectors Division. It will be from October 31 – November 2, 2014 at Akihabara UDX 2F AKIBA_SQUARE / 4F Gallery. [Official Website]
Besides Mazinkaiser SKL, Bandai came from left field and decided to release two combiners, God Sigma and God Mars, from what seemed as Soul of Chogokin material, to the smaller Super Robot Chogokin line.
Hopefully this will open the line to machines like Voltes V or Danguard Ace.

|From today’s batch of not-so-blurry magazine scane, Bandai has revealed prototype shots of the next Reborn-One Hundred kit, Gundam Mk-III from the Z-MSV (Z Gundam Mobile Suit Varations) design series.
For those unaware, when AEUG stole the three Gundam Mk-II prototypes at the start of Mobile Suit Z Gundam, two were sent to Anaheim Electronics to study and reverse engineer, producing two Gundam Mk-III units.
Unlike the Nightingale, this kit is much, much smaller and would allow Bandai to inject more details. That said, many are still considering the line as upscaled High Grades.
Thanks to Hydra, the AVENGERS Age of Ultron teaser trailer was released… And god that was spine chillingly awesome!
Everyone also got to see Iron Man’s Hulkbuster Armor that was teased sometime ago to appear in the film. The thing seems to be loaded with multiple Arc Reactors.
Tamashii Nations, please consider releasing this under your S.H.Figuarts line because that would be sweet!
