HG Yamcha photo

Make Yamcha useful by having a dead one on your shelf

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 release the remains...

MG Hi-Nu HWS ver. Ka photo

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. Adding even more...

Gunpla photo

Gundam Unicorn inspires two more Gunpla recolors

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 perfect reason to r...

Evangelion Cake with Rei photo

Let Rei Ayanami slice up a new Evangelion cake for you

Christmas time will soon be here and you'll need a cake to celebrate the Mass of the birth of Baby Jesus. Nothing would be more appropriate for this holy of holies than a cake from a series that has taken its religious inspiration with grea...

RD Barzam photo

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

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 just a one-off gr...

High Priestess Labrys photo

High Priestess Labrys appears for exclusive pre-orders

The last time we heard about the upcoming High Priestess Labrys was her feature in magazine scans back in March. She was announced in January but it's now August and she has finally made her appearance for pre-orders. As Brian alluded to ba...

S.H.F. Shocker Combatmen photo

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

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 due to pre-order...

P-Bandai exclusive Gunpla photo

Premium Bandai has two exclusive Gunpla, slightly changed

Premium Bandai is no stranger to Gunpla. While most of the exclusives have been re-colors or relatively unknown variations, that doesn't mean that the kits aren't without their merits. We have both cases today thanks to the additions of two...

SHF KR Blade King Form photo

SHF Kamen Rider Blade King Form is now official

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 of a book, it ...

HGUC Zogok ver. MSV photo

HGUC Zogok comes to Premium Bandai, joined by MG Banshee

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 odd enough alr...

AGE web-exclusive Gunpla photo

Trio of Gundam AGE Gunpla make it to Premium Bandai

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 through the releas...

Castle in the Sky photo

Bandai offers up a beautiful Ghibli Guardian

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 forgotten today under...


False Gundams, Mercurius & Vayate, come to Robot Spirits

The bad guys are always the hard ones to get. Bandai has been doing a pretty good job with the ones from Gundam Wing, as two grunts have gotten their release in the form of the easily-combustible Leo and Aries. While this release isn't the ...


New Robot Damashii Report introduces the Shenlong Gundam

Today is just one of those days. Continuing with our nostalgia trips comes the announcement of the Robot Damashii Shenlong Gundam from Gundam Wing. Bandai has been busy with the Gundam Wing line, releasing the grunt Leo and Aries while prev...


Darth Vader Mythos statue is the stuff of legends

OK. We all know Darth Vader and we all know how cool of a villain he is so let's just cut to the chase. This might just be the only Darth Vader statue you'll ever need. On its own it's made to represent Darth Vader returning to Mustafar whe...


Hobby scans have the old as new for Gundam

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, just one very ple...


Recreate Gundam Rise from the Ashes with new HGUC kits

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 game, Gundam Side...


For the lady of your life, here's a cake with a Barnaby

You love cakes. Bandai loves making money, and perhaps also cakes. Mix in that love with a splash of Tiger & Bunny and you'll get the latest product offerings from Bandai for you to buy. Since the ladies love them some Barnaby (and prob...


Get double the funnels for MG Nu ver Ka on Premium Bandai

Way back when Bandai announced the second coming of Gunpla Jesus that is the Master Grade Nu Gundam Ver Ka, they mentioned the ability to have the double fin-funnel version. Only problem with that is that you need 12 funnels to do that and ...


Become Wild Tiger with new 1/1 scale helmet

Fancy yourself a hero? If you've get the rest of the suit ready to go or just a maniacal villain wanting the heads of heroes on your mantle, Bandai has you covered if you've got the dough. Coming in February to the, you guessed it, Bandai P...


Bandai's Hybrid Grade goes legendary with SS3 Broly

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 to enter, Drag...


TFCC and e-HOBBY team up to 'shatter' G1 Transformers

[UPDATE: The official Transformers Collectors Club is now taking pre-orders on the Shattered Glass Soundwave VS Blaster set. Price is set at $195 with orders open until October 15 or until supplies last. Delivery is expected in mid-Jan...


Harvest Moon pre-order wants you to have a cow

Natsume Inc. is all geared up to celebrate 15 years of their flagship franchise with the launch of Harvest Moon: A New Beginning for Nintendo 3DS on November 6. And what better way to celebrate than with the Harvest Moon farm yard staple, t...


Runa makes their biggest Nyanko-sensei yet

Nyanko-sensei from Natsume's Book of Friends is fairly well known for being a rather plump kitty, but have you ever wondered what he would look like at, say, 43 inches long and 28 inches wide? Well you don't have to as Runa is now ...


Dengekiya exclusive Kuroyukihime figma hits pre-order

Hey, remember that kinda unusual figma of Kuroyukihime (Accel Assault Ver.) from AccelWorld that turned out to be a Dengekiya exclusive? Well it's finally gone up for pre-order! I say "finally", but in truth it's been up for nearly two week...


Robot Damashii Leo Space Type rolling out to Tamashii Web

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 version of the Robot...


The world can now sponsor GSC Racing to get figma Miku

For everyone who has wanted to sponsor Good Smile Racing but haven't been able to do so, good news! The GSR team has decided to open up sponsorships to those outside Japan so now you get the chance to support racing as a guise for obtaining...


Bandai Premium brings in three Gunpla from the scans

As I made mention of yesterday, three new Gunpla will be making their way to Bandai Premium web shop. They're all variations of existing or soon to be kits, but in the case of one, I really wanted this kit to be a normal release. Heading up...


[Update] Figma Marisa gets a re-release you can buy now

Were you excited when you saw the news that the figma of Marisa Kirisame from Touhou Project was getting a re-release? Perhaps through this new poll, that would mean you actually be able to buy it through a normal retailer or at least throu...


Gundam ELS Qanta and Zodiarts Leo headed to Tamashii Web

If you love something, let it go. If it truly loves you, it'll find its way back to you. It certainly feels that way for items that inevitably find their place in the exclusive Tamashii Web store. The two newest additions, Robot Damashii Gu...


Attention Duelists again! New web-exclusive Yugi by Koto

It was only just over a month ago that Kotobukiya released their 1/8 Yami Yugi. I'm not really a fan of the series, but I was at least interested in how they managed to that hair into a full sculpt. If you were impressed by the work or just...


Here's a better peek at Bandai's newest limited Gunpla

Sure, they're just re-colors of existing molds, but I think these are ones we can agree look rather nice. If you dig the looks of the all-white Gundam AGE-2, I can't fault you. It is an absolutely gorgeous kit and the plain white, accented ...


Bandai announces web-limited metallic recolored SD Gunpla

Believe it or not, the smaller scaled and super deformed version of Gunpla were only started 25 years ago. All this means is that it took Bandai 5 years to figure out a way to get you to buy a new version of a kit you already own. In t...
