Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: MegaHouse's Tieria Erde

MegaHouse's Tieria is just one of those figures that demanded more pictures than just the one or two. I might be wrong, but I think this is the first time we're seeing it in color, too. I was a little bit dubious of this figu...

Standby, here are your Gundam Build Fighters Season 2 Gunpla photo
Standby, here are your Gundam Build Fighters Season 2 Gunpla
by Andres Cerrato

Gundam Build Fighters was amazing. It didn't have a great plot, but it was at least enjoyable if just for all of the cameos. It certainly surpassed expectations in the west and now season 2, Gundam Build Fighters Try is on the horizon. With a new series based around Gunpla, there are of course new Gunpla for you to buy this upcoming October.

The main Gunpla of the series appears to be the Build Burning Gundam, which is unrelated to the God/Burning Gundam from G Gundam. Next is the Lightning Gundam, which is based off the Re-GZ. Lastly, there's the Winning Gundam, which is an original SD that features a combination gimmick to have different modes. In addition, there's the Powered GM Cardigan, which at this time has no other info about it except that it will come with a lot of weapons.

There's quite a bit to like here and I know that the series will have some more Gunpla that will have me buying them with no hesitation. Hopefully the show will be just as good as last time. After the jump, you'll find all of the pictures and release info.

MG Hi-Nu Gundam ver Ka's Heavy Weapons are ready for battle

The Hi-Nu Gundam ver. Ka is simply a beautiful mobile suit. While the first MG Hi-Nu had its detractors because it wasn't like the original design by Izubuchi, the new kit follows his design aesthetics much more faithfully. A...

Make your peace with God Gundam in Robot Damashii form

Way back in the distant past of last month at Tamashii Nations, the world finally saw the debut of Robot Damashii God Gundam. Sure, we're going to get Master Gundam and Master Asia soon enough, but first will be that which wa...

Tomopop Review: Alpha x Omega's Yzak Jule photo
Tomopop Review: Alpha x Omega's Yzak Jule
by Andres Cerrato

It's been a while for Megahouse's line of Gundam SEED figures. Opening first with G.E.M. Athrun Zala, then the figure of the songstress with the really long initials, RAHDXG.A.NEO Lacus Clyne, then actual main character G.E.M. Kira Yamato. The line finally comes to a hastened close with Alpha x Omega Yzak Jule. All lines aside, Megahouse has put in some great work in putting out figures for the 10th anniversary of SEED and Yzak is in a place to continue that tradition.

Find out how this figure fares in today's review of Alpha Omega Yzak Jule!

53rd Shizuoka Hobby Show: New 1/100 Gunpla line features the Nightingale photo
53rd Shizuoka Hobby Show: New 1/100 Gunpla line features the Nightingale
by Andres Cerrato

Bandai usually saves their big announcement for Shizuoka and this year they did not disappoint. While the show actually opens tomorrow, someone sneaked in and spoiled us all with this glorious announcement: 1/100 Nightingale.

Bandai had mentioned that a new line was coming to Gunpla in the 1/100 scale, so a Master Grade this is not. As this is just a peak into the future, dubbed the Reborn-One Hundred line, it is starting with some very long-awaited kits. Leading off is the massive MSN-04II Nightingale. Known to many as Char's mobile suit in the novelization of Char's Counterattack, people have been waiting for an official kit that wasn't produced by B-Club. Now we're actually getting an official plastic kit that is well overdue considering how the counterpart Hi Nu Gundam has received a glut of releases in recent years.

Nightingale isn't everything, as the second release in the line will be the Gundam Mark III and the third being the GP-04 Gundam Gerbera. I seriously can't help but love this announcement and can't wait to pre-order this. The official details will come soon enough. Between Unicorn's finale and Shizuoka this weekend, I'm making my pilgrimage to Mecha.
