BLOG: 54th Shizuoka Hobby Show – HG & HG Revive

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!

  • HGBF Gundam Leopard Da Vinci
    Release Information: August 2015 · ¥1,800
  • HG Gundam G-Self [Perfect Pack]
    Release Information: August 2015 · ¥2,700

54th Shizuoka Hobby Show - HG & HG Revive 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.

  • HG Prototype Gouf
    Release Information: Sept. 2015 · ¥1,800
  • HG Mobile Worker
    Release Information: Oct. 2015 · ¥1,800
  • HG YMS-07
    Release Information: TBD

That Mobile Worker kit looks interesting.

54th Shizuoka Hobby Show - HG & HG Revive 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.

  • HGCE Freedom Gundam
    Release Information: August 2015 · ¥1,800
  • Hobby Japan October 2015
    + HGCE Freedom Gundam Custom Kit

    Release Information: August 2015 · ¥972
