I may not have featured box arts for kits released this month, but I do have some for limited releases and online exclusives. And while two of these kits are Premium Bandai kits, they all do have full color packaging, which is something you see more often nowadays.
I just did a post about this kit yesterday, so I’ll just redirect you guys here. But as mentioned, I find it interesting that this kit gets full packaging art, especially being a Premium Bandai exclusive. I do like how visceral this new Ghost is being portrayed and will definitely look forward to this guy when it appears in the series.

Next up is a kit that I haven’t done a post for, but I will soon, and it is for the HG Cho Mashin Ryujinmaru as it appeared in Cho Mashin Hero Wataru. This is the first Bandai Spirits kit from this franchise, which is in direct contrast to the several figures Tamashii Nations has already released. It sets yet another dichotomy of whether to build this kit or get the figures. I am still making that choice, so it really helps that the hobby division released a blog detailing its construction.

Lastly, we have a recolor of the HGUC Zeta Gundam released as part of the Gundam Evolution Project. Japanese singer Hiroko Moriguchi, who’s known for her performance of the Gundam F91 theme song “Eternal Wind”, has been releasing compilation albums of her covers of various Gundam songs. And now, we’re getting the third volume in this series, aptly titled “Gundam Song Covers 3.” The album will also contain a “Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam” Medley bonus track and hence, the Limited Edition Gunpla Set version of the album will include the HGUC Zeta Gundam Ver. Hiroko Moriguchi kit.
