BLOG: Gunpla Expo World Tour Japan 2016 Winter – HG Gundam Thunderbolt
|Gunpla Expo World Tour Japan 2016 Winter is ongoing from November 19 to 23 at Akihabara UDX, Akiba Square and will feature upcoming Gunpla from the Bandai Hobby Division. [Official Website]
With Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt getting a second season, Bandai was quick to jump on the gun and reveal the upcoming Gunpla in line with the next chapter of the OVA.
First is the HG Atlas Gundam and those unfamiliar to the design can click here and see that it is one of those designs that would probably rely on heavy sticker usage as far as a High Grade version is concerned. And in essence, it will be quite a challenge to paint.
|Also in the pipeline is an HG Gundam Ground Type [Gundam Thunderbolt] kit. From first glance, it looks to be a retool of the HG GM [Gundam Thunderbolt] kit and maybe it is.
Design-wise, this version doesn’t have the asymmetrical torso section which was a signature feature of the Gundam Ground Type design. Don’t know as well if this will carry the same color scheme as the Gundam Thunderbolt version of the GM.
So yeah, there’s a definite need to build that HG Full Armor Gundam kit before all these so on sale.
