Start your new year with plenty of new mecha from Bandai
Enjoy starting 2013 with your wallet in the red
With your holidays possibly being celebrated in the exchange of gifts, you might want to start exchanging things for extra cash with what Bandai has planned for January releases. Across all of their lines of action figures, you are going to be busy and possibly broke.
You won't have to wait long for the SRC Gurren Lagann as it will come in with a price of 5,775 yen and will feature a separate drill accessory pack for 2,730 yen. The standard release does come with the Wing Unit and 2 pairs of glasses, and 2 arm drills. No giant drill. No Giga Drill Bream unless you buy the accessory pack. I'm sorry, but that's a load. At least include ONE normal sized drill in the standard release. However, Bandai will get you to buy it anyway as the drill pack can be used in conjunction with the February release of SRC Gunbuster. Bandai, you crafty, mischievous devils.
For Robot Damashii fans, you have your choice of two Gundams, Gundam ZZ and the Aegis. Aegis is no surprise as the SEED 10th Anniversary is in 6 days and the rest of the original 5 GAT-X units have been released. While it won't transform, it does retain the original dimensions of the lineart as it appeared in the series. It will also include all of its beam sabers and beam rifle for the price of 4,410 yen. ZZ is well, ZZ. It's big, well-armed, and unfortunately from ZZ Gundam. It is priced at 5,040 yen.
Lastly in kind-of mecha, there is the release of Thunder Gridman aka the Xenon combination of Servo from Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad. This edition will fall under the Ultra-Act line and will be a bit more expensive than traditional releases, coming in at the price of 5,775 yen. This release is not just Thunder Gridman, but you can remove the parts to make him just normal Gridman. Not a bad deal at all and they are throwing in the Thunder Grid Beam effect part. The only kicked in all of this is that they announce this THE DAY that the normal Ultra-Act Gridman is released.
