All gunpla are inherently hollow to a certain extent, with even inner frames having empty space inside them. A hollow weapon isn't really a problem by itself, and it only becomes an issue if you can see how hollow it is from a position that's visible on display.

I'm talking about a purely hollow mace. The MG Mace looks like it has more than just two halves snapped together. We'll know more when the kit comes out, but I'm still thinking there's more to it than Bandai just wanting a smaller mace.

i dunno, they probably tired to differentiate the regular mace from the Lupus Rex's mace.

The more I see of the RG Nu Gundam, the more my "Want" turns into "NEED"

And to no one's surprise: P-Bandai will be releasing an MG Heavyarms EW + Igel Equipment pack:

Damn. That's a lot of armaments. I wish I could see this in a Gundam anime.

The P-Bandai label killed my interest for the MG H-Arms + Igel. Especially since I already own the main MS. I'll just wait for third parties to get the Igel.

This can be good news or bad news depending on whether you want one F90 Gundam for each couple of Packs or not.

Wow, Bandai is on "Mass Produce"-roll these days. After Maganac Squad, now the Death Army, and they're all from the already-available AU kit-lines like HGAC & HGFC.

So...will we see Balient/GX-Bits corps from HGAW or GINN/Zaku Warriors squad from HGCE? Or probably doubling down on HGAC by releasing Aries' & Virgos? I sure hope so.

Interesting gimmick for the new main character Gundam in Re:Rise -

Planets System
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

It's a modular armor system, more akin to the the Liger Zero's CAS from Zoids: New Century, rather than the other changeable systems like the Striker & Silhouette packs or the AGE Wear.

The stoutness of the Core Gundam and its angry face though kinda makes me think "Tyrion Lannister" for some reason

Interesting enough that the core Gundam is based on RX78 Core fighter

I'm probably going to get just one MG F90, but that's because I'm expecting a Unit II and an F90-II eventually. That many Mission packs, it'll be too tempting for Bandai.

Also, the F "Fighter" mission pack reminds me of the Sturm Gallus, with those rapid....

spikes....

To give people an idea of just how large the upcoming HGUC Penelope is, and why it costs 7,480 yen, here's a size comparison with the RG Sazabi:

P-Bandai: HGUC RX-78-6 Gundam Mudrock



I wasn't a fan of the Mudrock before, but this HGUC is just Too bad it's P-Bandai, though it doesn't seem to expensive even considering shipping.

I'll take it. Much cheaper than the GFF and actually has better articulation.
