This month's scans feature tons of new Gunpla

I don't think there's ever been a time where I've been more excited by monthly scans. Not only is the Master Grade Turn X now in color, but there's also 4 new kits from Gunpla Build Fighters. On top of that, the new Real Grade Char's Z'Gok has its prototype, and a pair of new HGUCs from Unicorn. Get the full rundown of this month's Gunpla scans after the jump.

Set your GP Base for Gunpla Builders World Cup 2014 photo
Set your GP Base for Gunpla Builders World Cup 2014
by Andres Cerrato

You've built your Gunpla and now you want something to do with it. You've painted, sculpted new parts by hand, added armor by cutting many, many small pieces of plaplate. If you'd like the chance to show off your Gunpla, you can do so at this year's installment of the Gunpla Builders World Cup!

While sadly you won't be able to pilot your perfect Gunpla, only to be beaten by young boy on a quest, you can at least win. The GBWC, like in years past, will feature live competitions at 5 cons this year: Anime Central in Chicago, A-Kon in Dallas, Anime Expo in Los Angeles, Otakon in Baltimore and lastly at New York Comic-Con. If you can't make it out to any of the shows, there will be an online competition. If you are chosen as the Best in Show at any of these 6 competitions, you may be selected as the North American representative for the GBWC, which will of course mean additional prizes and a trip to Japan for the finals.

If you'd like to see the full rules and requirements, check out Bluefin's GBWC page. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I need to get building again.

More new Gunpla including HGUC Neo Zeong with an equally large price

When the Neo Zeong was revealed, no one thought it would actually get a HGUC release. Things get crazy and sure enough, it does. This month's hobby scans give a glimpse of what to expect from the monstrosity, along with a few...

Tomopop Unboxes - Master Grade Sazabi Ver Ka

I've waited for quite some time, but my most anticipated plamo of the year is finally at my doorstep. Arriving today was the Master Grade Sazabi Ver Ka. After substantial shipping fees and trying to fit the box through my doorway, I got to take a look inside and see what Gunpla madness I have ahead of me. Hit the jump for my unboxing of the Master Grade Sazabi Ver Ka!

Hello and welcome back to another round of Tomopop LinkUP! December 12 is observed as 'National Ding-A-Ling Day', a day set aside to watch out for crazy people. I couldn't say why, but doesn't that also mean it's a good day to act crazy? I don't see why not! After all there's a very fine line between genius and insanity and it probably takes a good amount of both to make it in the figure world. 

This week we're looking at some brilliantly warped works from a number of designers and customizers as well as a number of great looking ladies along with a few other things.

by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! It's been pretty crazy this past week, what with everyone trying to extend Black Friday and Cyber Monday into more than just a single day. If you looked around there were some good figure deals to be had, though I can't say I found much of interest at major retailers. Seemed like this year the best deals were online. Or maybe that's the same as every year and I'm just so used to buying stuff online that I don't notice anymore. Well, whatever the case, there were some good stuff out there.

This week on LinkUP we've got an unintentionally large number of Nendoroids to talk about alongside some designer figures, prototypes, bots, another Kickstarter, and some superheroes.
