You know what's funny about RG Crossbones? Some lazy customers will still complain that Bandai didn't make the skull motifs pre-painted :heh:. To them I say: the Robot Damashii Crossbones are there for a reason....

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread) Hopefully, the FA Expansion Pack for the MG Enhanced ZZ Gundam will also be present/announced in the hobby show this weekend.

^ It's a shame that FAZZ's big gun has never been rolled out in the ZZ anime even once. It also has never been used significantly in Build series IIRC.

Those facts really make me want Ban-rise to either adapt Sentinel or make Judau cames back future UC project just to pilot the FAZZ and use the goddamn gun properly.


Oh, and freakin' finally:

Also, for the weirdest upcoming release, the HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam (Industrial Design Version), aka the Gundam G40:

Not particularly fond of the design at the moment, though I admit it's got some killer articulation for a High Grade kit. It'd better have good articulation though, since it supposedly retails for around 3,000 yen (around $27), which is kinda nuts for an HG kit that's not some massive monstrosity.

The most interesting aspect of this design would be its designer, Ken Okuyama. He's an industrial engineer best known for his automotive work, such as having designed cars for Ferrari (like the Enzo), and his work on the various modern Shinkansens.

Get him to redesign Turn A so that we get mohawk with mustaches gundam

its sort of weird that the skirt armor is a static piece that the thighs bend over it to achieve full movement.

Those who want to see a glimpse of the process behind the G40 kit, here you go:

That's how it originally depicted at many points in the TV series as the video above shows us.

Imagine how much more gimmicks it would've had if it was an MG.

P-Bandai HGAC Leo (Full Weapon Set)

This is essentially the green Leo but with all of the weapons and accessories from the Flight and Space types, along with a couple of new exclusive accessories namely a new backpack and open hands.

I think this review is worth watching considering how unique this P-Bandai is:

Gundam Base Tokyo's size comparison for the HGUC Penelope compared to other large HGUC's.

Should give people even more of an idea as to why this thing costs about 7,000 yen.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2019-10-23 23:49

^ But why is Penelope more expensive than Psycho Gundam even though it's bigger & has more plastic than Peny?

More plastic. Psycho Gundam is hollow inside.

Despite its size, the Psyco Gundam is actually hollow like most HGUC's, and it's helped by the fact that its design is quite simple and really plain if you look at it. You can pretty much call the Psyco Gundam a small Mega-Size kit.

The Penelope meanwhile has significantly more gimmicks in its flight pack separation plus the slight partsformation it has, and it has significantly more plastic to make both the flight pack and the Odysseus Gundam while retaining proper color separation.

It's most likely that display arms doesn't have a proper connector to hold the wings. What's intriguing is the fact that the photo was taken from that angle, which is inside the display booth that only authorized personnel have access. So why would he/she show the crude workaround of their display? Disgruntled employee? For the lulz?

So at Tamashii Nations yesterday, both The Exia Repair IV and Dynames Repair 3 were revealed to be getting Metal Build action figures.
