BLOG: METAL BUILD Crossbone Gundam X1

Tamashii Nations has revealed the next figure in the METAL BUILD line, and with the tag line "This is only the beginning." it’s the METAL BUILD Crossbone Gundam X1.

Much like previous releases, this is a stylized take on the Crossbone Gundam X1 design with numerous die cast parts. For gimmicks, it has the face open feature, as well as a working Core Fighter system with articulated rear binders to give that signature "X" silhouette. The set also comes with most of its notable weapons and accessories — including the Beam Zamber/Buster Gun, Brand Markers, Scissor Anchors, heat daggers, and the Anti Beam Coating Cloak which is made from actual cloth. Finally, it comes with a scout machine named "Billy"

BLOG: Soul of Chogokin GX-83 Daimos (Full Action)

Soul of Chogokin GX-83 Daimos (Full Action) Further next on the Soul of Chogokin F.A. or Full Action subline is the final entry in the Romance Robot TrilogyGX-83 Daimos (Full Action). All figures will be standing at 180 mm and ditches any transformation feature for ‘revolutionary articulation’ as they call it. These figures also have slightly stylized aesthetics, akin to Super Robot Chogokin releases.

Here’s a little tidbit, Daimos isn’t exactly the most popular of super robots back in the day. So much so that after its original Soul of Chogokin GX-43 release back in 2008, it didn’t get any recolor or reissue. So for those who weren’t able to get the first release, here’s a good alternative.

BLOG: Tamashii Web Exclusive – THE ROBOT SPIRITS <Side MS> Nightingale

With everyone already tired of these "Ver. A.N.I.M.E." releases, it’s no surprise that many were glad when Tamashii Nations announced this ‘regular figure’ in THE ROBOT SPIRITS line. Any by no stretch can anyone consider this a regular figure. Years after releasing the Hi-Nu Gundam in both THE ROBOT SPIRITS and THE METAL ROBOT SPIRITS line, Tamashii Nations finally decided to give it an enemy.

No details have been revealed so far though come September 4 as of this post, Tamashii Nations is expected to drop more information regarding this figure. And yes, this is a web exclusive for those who aren’t used to these stuff.

BLOG: THE ROBOT SPIRITS <Side PB> "Tetsukyojin"

ROBOT SPIRITS <Side PB> "Tetsukyojin" Once in a while, Tamashii Nations releases a new figure under THE ROBOT SPIRITS line that is not a Ver. A.N.I.M.E. release (yes, this has been the state of the line for the time being). This time around, starting a new sub-line as well with the introduction of the (i.e. Panzer Blade) coming from the Panzer World Galient franchise.

Opening the sub-line is Tetsukyojin (tr. Iron Giant) from the Panzer World Galient OVA which is a different retelling of the story. This version of Galient has no transformation features and so the figure boasts great range of articulation coupled with its signature weaponry. Gimmicks include florescent paint applications that glow under UV light.
