|Max Factory is doing a double combo this December as not only will it release Cherno Alpha, but also Gipsy Danger, the protagonist machine in Pacific Rim as part of their PLAMAX line of model kits.
Standing at 230 mm, Gipsy Danger is hyper-detailed thanks to the use of the actual CG models to reproduce it in plastic. The kit also includes water slide decals to further emphasize that realistic look. As for accessories, it will include parts to build the Plasma Cannon and Chain Sword. It will also come with an LED unit to light up its torso-mounted reactor.
|With all the brouhaha and commotion surrounding the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt version of the Full Armor Gundam, Tamashii Nations has not forgotten the original design and put it in the ver.A.N.I.M.E. sub-brand of the ROBOT Damashii line.
This is the original Full Armor Gundam as seen in the Mobile Suit Variation design series, moss green armor and all. Aside from its excellent articulation, the figure comes with a bunch of weapons, accessories, and effect parts for various display options. And with Bandai Hobby currently not planning on releasing a High Grade of this guy, getting this kit is a great alternative.
|When the Blast Impulse Gundam was released as a Bandai Hobby Online Shop exclusive, it was understandable as it wasn’t even included in the High Grade GUNDAM SEED line. Admittedly, the Sword Impulse Gundam is a more popular design and should warrant a regular release like its Master Grade counterpart. Well Bandai doesn’t think so as it’s also a web exclusive.
Different colors and Sword Silhouette aside, the kit will also come with a variant of the Excalubur anti-ship sword and a replacement torso unit for the HGCE Freedom Gundam to replicate that iconic scene in episode 34 of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED DESTINY.
