Sentimental reasons: The Zetaplus Gundam

I am already putting myself on a tighter budget, but this one kit, I really do have to get. It's the Zetaplus C1, and I had the original transforming kit of this, from the original Sentinels line of Bandai back in the '80s or '90s.

Some Gundams at the GBWC Japan leg

Here are some of the nice Gundam kits I saw at this entry about the Japan GBWC for 2016.


Gundam Build Fighters TRY: Super Fumina, Titans Colors

It seems that mixing mecha and loli or almost-loli girls is the order of the day (re: Frame Arms Girls), but in this case, it's Gundam. I actually like the mecha components, I just wish it wasn't so, err, French. Still, c'est la vie!


Gundam Unicorn MSV: ReBawoo

The original Bawoo unit is one of my favorite designs, so it's no surprise that I have a soft spot for this bawoo variant, that's supposed to be an ace version for use by a main character in Gundam Unicorn.

Mini Turrets with cannons, for Frame Arms

The idea of cannon turrets for the standard Frame Arms mecha makes sense, but for Frame Arms GIrls, it's pretty much a Kan Colle wink-and-a-blink.


Frame Arms Revolver Cannon

This is probably one of the few Frame Arms Weapons that I won't get - not because I don't like the idea of a revolver-style cannon, but because there are a LOT of new stuff coming out from Kotobukiya right now, and I actually don't know how I'd use this.


Megazord at a reasonable price

Although this does look like a scaled-down plastic kit version of the big Chogokin Power Rangers/Sentai Megazord toy, at what seems to be 920 Yen each, that comes to 4600 Yen - around 2400 Pesos for a whole set. I might not mind getting this particular set - which would be a first for me

New Gundams for the Winter

Here are just some of the interesting mecha coming out from the Gundam franchise in the following months.

Metal Garland

This is a surprisingly popular offer, the Garland transformable landbike/mecha from megazone 23.


Kotobukiya Frame Arms: Hresvelgr Rufus

This is the first time this weapons setup has been done as a complete kit in itself, although all the parts for it, have, arguably, been around since the original Hresvelgr basic and Ater releases, aside from the weapon set that has the rifle parts. However, this particular gunblade configuration comes from an earlier special set, an exclusive set for the Strauss+Kobold pair, the Weisheit.

Definitely a must have, though I would probably just buy the scythe-laden weapon sets, as this version seems to have the standard rifle blades from the original Hresvelgr (albeit not prepainted).

Frame Arms Fistfight

It looks like Kotobukiya has a fist fight in its hands, with these new large-size hand manipulators. They're perfect for use with the new Guardian armor system, while at the same time it can probably be used with 1/60 Gundam-type mecha.


Bandai's new Gundam and Patlabor figures

It looks like Bandai is going for a lot of new products. Of note: a non-SD Knight Gundam figure, and the new Patlabor:Reboot mecha - and mobile hangar.


Full Armored Saber?

It seems that the idea of Weapon as Armor has come to the Fate's Saber.


It's no surprise, given the existence of the Gundam Astray Second Frame.

Bandai SoC Ankoku Daishogun

While this isn't necessarily a mecha (jury is out on what it really is...), it is one of the big bads in a mecha show, so I'm including it here.

No word yet if this is a prototype, a display piece, or will actually go into production.


Megahouse D-Spec Metal Gear Rex (Black version)

For those wondering, yes, this is an SD/Chibified version of a scary mecha.

I approve.

Bandai HGBF 1/144 Lunagazer Gundam

I actually liked the design - but that semi-ring setup just doesn't work for me. If I ever do get this one, I'll probably bash it with the original Stargazer.


Diaclone Cosmo Dia Battles

Now, I have the first Dia Battles Mecha set, and this is essentially an upgrade for one of the segments - specifically, the backpack and arms.

I recomment this toy line to anyone who wants a mix of Microman and Transformers!
