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.

Tomopop Review: Robot Damashii Wing Gundam photo
Tomopop Review: Robot Damashii Wing Gundam
by Andres Cerrato

I've had a lot of fun with the recent Robot Damashii I've acquired. The Leo Flight Type is the grunt I've always loved, and Deathscythe Hell has become one of my go-to figures. Cut to the latest entry, the Wing Gundam, the first Gundam many of us saw. With the Robot Damashii line wrapping up its focus on Gundam Wing, the titular mecha has finally gotten its release.

Does the Robot Damashii Wing Gundam ignite those lost feelings when we first saw it or is it just another beat in the endless waltz. Find out in today's review after the jump!

Custom LEGO Jaegers and Kaiju are glorious

Several months ago, Emily posted a LEGO Gypsy Danger designed by Mako. It was glorious and I rejoiced. I prayed to the robo-heavens for more. More Jaegers, more Kaiju, more anything Pacific Rim-related. It seems those wishes ...
