|The 53rd annual Shizuoka Hobby Show is currently ongoing from May 15 to 18 at Twin Messe Shizouka and features spring and summer hobby merchandise displays from various manufacturers. [Official Website]
Though only appearing in a couple of episodes, the demand for these two kits seems to be high.
As seen in the closing episodes of Gundam Build Fighters, the Gundam Fenice Rinascita now transforms to a flight mode like its original namesake (which has been dropped for its current name). On the other hand, Gundam Amazing Exia looks to be a complete recolor of Gundam Exia Dark Matter with the inclusion of a new shield.
|Other kits featured in the show floor include the HGBF Gouf R35 which features an entirely new mold different from the HGUC Gouf release; and the HGBC Valuable Pod which can be attached to the HGUC Gyan to form the Gyan Vulcan.
In related news, this particular banner is seen in the Bandai booth. It has the words "Next Fighters Standby" as well as the kanji characters for "atarashii series" which roughly translates to "new series" as far as this author’s shallow Nihonggo is concerned.
Does this mean a new series based off Gundam Build Fighters, new kits, or something else?
