BLOG: 56th All Japan Model & Hobby Show – Super MiniPla
|The 56th All Japan Model & Hobby Show is Japan’s premier showcase of upcoming hobby and model-related products. It went from Sept. 23 to 25 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. [Official Website]
With the commotion out from the show floor done, here are a couple of takeaways from the show. First is the direction that the Super MiniPla line is taking. After releasing Xabungle and Ideon, both from the 1980s, the line takes a turn a decade later to release a couple of 1990s designs. First, as already teased, is a transformable (likely partsforming) GaoGaiGar set. Then there is Daizyujin, a design getting lots of attention nowadays thanks to this and an upcoming Soul of Chogokin release. Now Bandai Candy has been doing Super Sentai MiniPla kits for a long time so it’s interesting to see how this treatment differs from their usual offerings.
