BLOG: Chara Hobby 2015 C3 x Hobby – MG Altron Gundam EW

Chara Hobby 2015 C3 x Hobby - MG Altron Gundam EW Chara Hobby 2015 C3 x Hobby is Japan’s largest character and hobby event. It will be held from August 22-23 at Makuhari Messe Halls 1-3 in Tokyo and will feature industry exhibits and live shows. [Official Website]

Capping off the Gundam stuff from this year’s Chara Hobby is a kit that was actually revealed during Gunpla Expo World Tour 2015 Korea. Took them quite a while but Bandai has finally decided to release the MG Altron Gundam EW as a Bandai Hobby Online Shop exclusive. As for those physically impossible endless dragon fangs, this kit will take the HG route and include multiple segments. All that’s left are the upgraded Heavyarms and Sandrock units.

This year’s show has been underwhelming in terms of Gunpla reveals to be honest, though there’s one that came out of left field. Tamashii Nations has been doing mecha musume stuff with their Armor Girls Project for a while now, but Bandai Hobby has yet to offer something similar until now. Completing the last batch of mobile suits that appeared in Gundam Build Fighters Try is the HGBF Super Fumina. Won’t be getting this one but, will this open the possibility for more MS Girl-based Gunpla?

Guess it’s too much to ask for another High Grade as Bandai decided to release the MG RX-78-2 Gundam [THE ORIGIN Ver.]. In any case, it’s also a good thing that they did a Master Grade instead as imagining this as a High Grade would really introduce some design fatigue.

Can’t really say if this is an entirely new mold or just a retool of a previously released RX-78-2 Master Grade but the kit looks accurate to the source material which is all that matters.

BLOG: CHOGOKIN My Melody [Red]

In 2014, Bandai released CHOGOKIN Hello Kitty as part of the 40th Anniversary celebration of both the toy line and Hello Kitty herself. In 2015, another Sanrio character is celebrating her 40th Anniversary and apparently, also wants to have a Chogokin robot.

As a collaboration between the "Challenge! My Melody" project and Chogokin, Bandai is releasing CHOGOKIN My Melody [Red]. Appearing in her original red hood design, My Melody can transform from robot to a space cruiser. At the end of her earpieces are heart-shaped projectiles that can shoot… and reach for the moon. Yep.

This will indeed be a great companion piece with CHOGOKIN Hello Kitty. Hmmm…
