BLOG: Super Minipla Live Robo & Live Boxer

Super Minipla Live Robo & Live Boxer Collecting Super Sentai robots is one rabbit hole this collector is glad to avoid. That said, things might be different when it comes to Super Minipla. After releasing the Megazord, Dragonzord and Titanus, Bandai Candy will to continue the Super Sentai train with Live Robo and Live Boxer from Liveman. They can also combine to form the Super Live Robo while maintaining the articulation of the individual robots.

Thinking of getting both but won’t give the same effort when building Gunpla, will just use the marking seals and apply some flat top coat.

BLOG: "Next Phase Gunpla" – HG Gundam FSD

"Next Phase Gunpla" - HG Gundam FSD As long as the name of the previous reveal is, this kit on display at The Gundam Base Tokyo’s "Next Phase Gunpla" section is a little too simplistic. Appearing in the side story Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN MSD – Cucuruz Doan’s Island is the Gundam FSD, short for Full-Scale Development.

Based from the Gundam Local Type, this is yet another prototype planned for mass producing the RX-78 Gundam and is on a different design lineage from the GM. It comes with a long-range beam rifle and a beam gatling gun mounted on its right arm.

The kit on display is still in the planning stages and no release information has been announced.

BLOG: "Next Phase Gunpla" – HGBF Build Strike Galaxy Cosmos

"Next Phase Gunpla" - HGBF Build Strike Gundam Galaxy Cosmos The Gundam Base Tokyo has opened a new section called “Next Phase Gunpla” which aims to provide the earliest, like more than two months early, look into future releases as well as other kits that are currently in consideration.

One of the teases is apparently the next evolution of the Build Strike Gundam. Following the Build Strike Gundam Cosmos is the even longer named Build Strike Galaxy Cosmos. So much so that they seemed to have dropped the “Gundam” part of the name. What’s retained is the same core design but has more red clear parts, as well as Freedom Gundam-esque rear wing binders. It is slated to debut in the fifth installment of Gundam Build Fighters BATTLOGUE.

BLOG: Tamashii Web Exclusive – S.H.Figuarts Iron Man Mark 4

Tamashii Web Exclusive - S.H.Figuarts Iron Man Mark 4 Tamashii Nations has set a bar for Iron Man figures with their S.H.Figuarts releases that there’s not much excitement when one gets announced. It comes with the expected articulation and poseability, as well as accessories.

And so, as far as stand-alone Iron Man releases are concerned, the S.H.Figuarts Iron Man Mark 4 is somewhat refreshing. Now it comes with the usual plethora of gimmicks and accessories, but what makes this special are those included to replicate the ‘donut’ scene in Iron Man 2. These include two replacement Tony Stark heads (with/without sunglasses) and a box of donuts. With this, what’s left are only the Mark 1 and Mark 7 armors.

BLOG: MG Enhanced ZZ Gundam "Ver.Ka" (Complete Kit & Expansion Parts)

MG Enhanced ZZ Gundam "Ver.Ka" (Complete Kit & Expansion Set) In a totally expected move, Bandai is going to release the MG Enhanced ZZ Gundam "Ver.ka" as an online exclusive. That said, they are giving options. First is an expansion set which will include parts to convert the vanilla ZZ Gundam into its Enhanced upgrade. The other option is a stand-alone kit of the Enhanced ZZ Gundam, the primary difference being instead of being pure white, it will come in animation-accurate colors with greenish tint.

It won’t be long if they do the same with the eventual Full Armor ZZ Gundam release.
