BLOG: Gunpla Expo World Tour Japan 2016 Winter – Master Grade
|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]
Not to be left behind, fans of the Master Grade line also got exciting previews for a couple of upcoming kits. Those who never gave up hoping to get an MG Providence Gundam years after Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ended must be quite ecstatic as they’re finally getting one.
While not a “2.0” release, this kit definitely has the same aesthetic as the MG Freedom Gundam 2.0, sharp angles and all. With this release, it’s not that far fetched anymore to hope for an MG Justice Gundam as well.
|Speaking of 2.0s, and while this kit technically isn’t one either, this treatment is probably much better. Leading in a survey conducted last September at Gundam.Info for the next MG Ver.Ka kit, Bandai actually listed to the fans as they’re actually developing an MG ZZ Gundam Ver.Ka.
The kit is going to be released in line with the 30th anniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ though other than those tidbits, and the displayed teaser as seen, no actual prototypes were on the show floor as it’s still in the early planning stages. Nonetheless, this should keep fans of the design excited.
