BLOG: 54th Shizuoka Hobby Show – HG & HG Revive
|The 54th Shizuoka Hobby Show is ongoing from May 14 to 17 at Twin Messe Shizouka and features spring and summer hobby merchandise displays from various manufacturers. [Official Website]
Aside from the HG Revive kits, Bandai also displayed upcoming HG releases. First is the Gundam Leopard Da Vinci, pun intended. Appearing in the last episode of Gundam Build Fighters Try, this kit serves as a precursor to the eventual HGAW Gundam Leopard release, completing the trio from After War Gundam X.
Also shown is the Gundam G-Self [Perfect Pack], the mid-season upgrade from GUNDAM Reconguista in G. Clear parts galore!
|Like previous Gundam productions, Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN also has its own MSV or Mobile Suit Variations. With the OVA only covering events leading to the original Mobile Suit Gundam, the concept of MSVs won’t make much sense as mobile suit technology is still at development. As such, the MSV has been rebranded as MSD or Mobile Suit Discovery.
And as part of Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN MSD, Bandai has three High Grade prototypes on display.
That Mobile Worker kit looks interesting.
|Going back to the HG Revive stuff, Bandai has more detailed displays, including the runners that show the improved parts separation that these new kits have.
For the HGCE Freedom Gundam, the October 2015 issue of Hobby Japan will include custom parts to build this variant. Not sure if this is came/will come from a Gundam Build Fighters side story but the custom kit will include parts for additional binders, weapons and a new head unit.
