Some exciting and incredible news out of the 50th All Japan Plastic Model Hobby Show that starts today in Tokyo! So much that I find myself sneaking around at work to post my thoughts, and get some discussion going! Be sure to check out Gundam Guy as he’s posting updates and pictures as it happens. But the sheer amount of MG’s announced has me fired up for some Gunpla!
PG Strike Freedom – Looking better than I thought it would, and looks to be huge! The gold finish is not at all what I was expecting though. I was expecting shiny gold like the Musha Mk. II, but from a distance it looks like gold plastic like the regular MG and other kits. However close up shots make it look lke a very muted plated gold. Looks good up close, looks eh far away.
RG Char Zaku-II – Looking better than I thought it would be, this may be a day one purchase. Box art is good too!
MG Quan[T] – Still looking like Exia 1.5 with a new sword. Pass.
MG ReZel – Transformation gimmick looks pretty good seeing how they showed off the stages of change. This may make me change from a get later to a get sooner.
HG Extreme Gundam – I’m liking this design, looks like I’ll be picking it up.
MG Deathscythe Hell Custom – Burning people!! Nice Bandai, you should have waited a bit longer to announce this one so you could get more sales out of the MG Deathscythe. I’m glad I waited, because this is the one I’ll be getting.
And then there are the other Gundam W kits as well. While we knew they would be eventually releasing them, it’s suprising to see such a fast turn around. Heavyarms is a want!
OK folks, discuss!
