Make Yamcha useful by having a dead one on your shelf


Dead Yamcha is best Yamcha
Mar 26
// Andres Cerrato
All jokes aside, Yamcha used to be actually capable of something. Then the Saibamen came, blew him to bits, and it's been all downhill since then. You can now commemorate this moment thanks to Bandai, who have decided to rele...

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


Heavy weapons will equal a light wallet
Jul 16
// Andres Cerrato
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...

Gundam Unicorn inspires two more Gunpla recolors


MG Z'Gok and Zaku Cannon get new decos for UC
Aug 25
// Andres Cerrato
Gundam Unicorn prides itself on Zeon fanaticism and nostalgia. A third Neo-Zeon movement doesn't leave a lot of mobile suits left, so we're left with a bunch of old OYW suits now with new colors. These new schemes make a perf...

The Barzam finally gets a figure, straight to P-Bandai


RD Ver Ka are pretty much destined there
Aug 24
// Andres Cerrato
The Barzam was one of those special mobile suits from Zeta Gundam. You say it in just a few episodes and that was about it. Its unique look won it a lot of fans, not to mention its glorious color scheme. However, as it was ju...

Load up your Shocker army with S.H. Figuarts multipacks


See, THIS is how exclusives should be done
Jul 24
// Andres Cerrato
Any army builder knows how frustrating it is to get grunts. Whether its Stormtroopers or Vipers, it's tough to get a lot of them at once. When it's an S.H. Figuarts that you need to army build, it's that much more difficult d...

Jul 12
// Andres Cerrato
Odds are, if something is on the cover of a book, it's going to be real. That's the case for S.H. Figuarts Kamen Rider Blade King Form as he was confirmed as an upcoming release by Bandai. I was excited as it was on the cover...

HGUC Zogok comes to Premium Bandai, joined by MG Banshee


I think I'm okay with this one being exclusive
Jul 09
// Andres Cerrato
Gundam Unicorn has provided multiple opportunities to bring back forgotten mobile suits of the Universal Century for an upgraded look. Those looks bring out Gunpla, which inevitably leads to variation. While the HGUC Zogok is...

Jun 27
// Andres Cerrato
Not too long ago, Sunrise announced the Gundam AGE project Memory of Eden. People were stunned as they thought in order to have a project get a sequel, people had to have liked it. In any case, Bandai will make its profit thr...

Alas, it's an exclusive
Laputa: Castle in the Sky was one of the very first Studio Gibli efforts to hit the screen (technically it is the first, as the earlier Nausicaa did not bear the famous studio name) and might be a little forgot...

RS Mercurius and Vayate
Jun 10

Hobby scans have the old as new for Gundam


And we'll buy them all, regardless
Feb 24
// Andres Cerrato
It seems like the old adage comes true, what was once old is new again. With the spring serving as an in-between time, there isn't that much in the way of new announcements. No crazy, out of nowhere Master Grades or HGUCs, ju...

The release of the White Dingo version of the GM Sniper II was a dream realized, even though it was only available through the Premium Bandai Shop. I didn't think too much of seeing the rest of the suits from the Dreamcast ga...

The Hybrid Grade line of figures is normally relegated to gashapon machines. Don't get them confused with the typical gashapon quality though, as these will do much better in terms of sculpting and painting. The newest series...

Aug 10

If there is something that could be the definition of cannon fodder, it's the Leo. As a joke to its pilots with its armor seemingly made of paper mache, somehow we still love it. With the normal, gravity-bound versi...
