BLOG: HGBF Amazing Strike Freedom Gundam – Colored Prototype Shots

HGBF Amazing Strike Freedom Gundam - Colored Prototype Shots Dengeki Hobby got the display sample of the HGBF Amazing Strike Freedom Gundam as seen in the recent Gunpla Expo, providing a better look at this latest variant of an existing design.

These give a better look at this mobile suit, including the VRABE Dragoon units on the wing biners. It also shows more of the red internal frame which kind of doesn’t really work, at least for this collector. Will probably switch a couple of colors, most likely the gray bits and the red internal frame, when building this kit.

So a couple of color choices aside, this thing doesn’t really look that odd.

BLOG: Floating in Space? Really, Optimus Prime?

So in the first Transformers live action movie, Optimus Prime came to Earth as a comet from space. Then in Age of Extinction he made that valiant speech of finding their creator and what not, then blasted out into space. After all that bravado, he ends up frozen and floating in space. Really, Optimus Prime?

This is the first trailer for TRANSFORMERS The Last Knight and much like the previous entries, the trailer actually looks good but totally not indicative of the final work. The trailer itself has some interesting imagery. One that raises curiosity is that planet-like thing approaching Earth. Then there’s Megatron, how is he related to Galvatron?

Anyway, TRANSFORMERS The Last Knight is slated for a June 23, 2017 release.

BLOG: Godzilla x Evangelion “NERV Anti-G Weapon” – Prototype Shots

Godzilla x Evangelion "NERV Anti-G Weapon" - Prototype Shots Miyazawa Model Exhibition 2016 Autumn was held last weekend and while not the largest of shows, it featured stuff that wasn’t shown during the larger shows, including this guy.

Sen-Ti-Nel revealed last August that they’re also doing their Godzilla x Evangelion collaboration thing, currently known as the "NERV Anti-G Weapon" and was designed by Yoji Shinkawa (Metal Gear). Now they had a prototype on the show floor and it looks great.

Based on the initial illustrations, it looks like this figure is going to be mostly black and silver but the details on this prototype is superb. Here’s hoping that it will just fit within the CATALOGUE size limitations for this collector to purchase one.

BLOG: THE ROBOT SPIRITS Extreme Gundam Type Leos "All Phases Project"

"THE ROBOT SPIRITS Extreme Gundam Type Leos" Project Disclaimer: All items seen here were purchased within the span of four years and thus, this isn’t the monetary wastage it would seem.

Having both ROBOT Damashii Extreme Gundam Type-Leos and the option set allows forming the five modes of the aforementioned mobile suit via parts swapping. That said, this collector doesn’t find that process appealing. So he concocted this idea of getting two of the option sets and five of the base figure to have all five forms (or Phases) as individual figures.

Years pass and here they are. The process would be very straight forward and requires no modification. Although it has been mentioned that one can modify an Extreme Gundam head to reveal the hidden face on the back. Will try to look at that but at the moment, everything should be ready.
