BLOG: 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show – 1/100 Hi-Resolution Model Wing Gundam Zero EW

56th Shizuoka Hobby Show - 1/100 Hi-Resolution Model Wing Gundam Zero EW The 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show is ongoing from May 11 to 14 at Twin Messe Shizouka and features spring and summer hobby merchandise displays from various manufacturers. [Official Website]

Another kit that many were looking forward to see an actual prototype is the 1/100 Hi-Resolution Model Wing Gundam Zero EW since it has been announced months back yet nothing has been seen sans promotional art.

Much like Gundam Barbatos (and the 6th Form) before it, this kit will have a pre-assembled inner frame with high gloss and two-tone colored armor pieces attached to it. Together resulting in a very stylized take on the classic design.

Bandai Hobby has been teasing this guy via this special page for quite a while now but this is the first time that an actual prototype was on display. And so far, it looks like the one being teased thus far, which is a good thing.

Those who want the Full Armor ZZ Gundam variant might have a chance of getting one if this kit follows the release pattern of the MG Nu Gundam Ver.Ka where the Heavy Weapon System was eventually available either as an expansion set or a stand-alone kit.


BLOG: 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show – RG Unicorn Gundam

56th Shizuoka Hobby Show - RG Unicorn Gundam The 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show is ongoing from May 11 to 14 at Twin Messe Shizouka and features spring and summer hobby merchandise displays from various manufacturers. [Official Website]

Time to address the elephant in the room as Bandai has a sample of the RG Unicorn Gundam on the show floor. What’s interesting that it’s also the next kit to be branded under the Gunpla Evolution Project banner. Under the project are three "Evolution Points" — Action, Build, and Color. Not really sure if each point will be represented by a single kit but it will be interesting if this Real Grade focuses on Build as everyone’s immediate concern is stability (RE: RG Zeta Gundam). Oh and Mega Size Unicorn Gundam [Destroy Mode] because the line’s not yet dead, apparently.


BLOG: 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show – HGBF "GM’s Counterattack"

Okay, before going straight into the elephant in the room, here are a few detours. Along with the reveal of Gundam Build Fighters GM’S COUNTERATTACK are, of course, new Gunpla. First is the HGBF GM/GM which is essentially a stylized GM with multiple head options, perfect for army-building.

What’s more interesting is this currently unnamed Gundam that bears a striking resemblance to the Build Burning Gundam. It was said that Sei Iori built it but no explanations were given. Maybe GM’S COUNTERATTACK will shed some light on the origins of this Gunpla?


BLOG: HG Gundam Ground Type-S [Gundam Thunderbolt] – Box Art

HG Gundam Ground Type-S [Gundam Thunderbolt] - Box Art Kits from Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt usually have amazing artwork, and this one is of no exception.

So here’s another attempt to make a viable blogpost from a packaging illustration.

Has anyone noticed why kits of Gundam Thunderbolt mobile suits always have "[Gundam Thunderbolt]" in their official names? It’s understandable for the regular Zaku, GM, or the Full Armor Gundam as these are variants of already existing designs.

But what about the Atlas Gundam, or this guy — the Gundam Ground Type-S, are there versions of these mobile suits outside of Gundam Thunderbolt? Okay, that’s enough overthinking for today.
