One of the most hotly anticipated kits of the year is in! It’s none other than the Ken Okuyama HG RX-78-2 G40 Industrial Design Version kit!

All Standard Gunpla Releases of 2019 [List]

To help you vote in our Best Gunpla of 2019 poll, we’ve put together a quick reference of all of the standard Gunpla releases of 2019! These releases do not include exclusives or P Bandai items, as we think Gunpla that’s available for everyone to enjoy would be more deserving of the title of “Best!”(That said, you may vote for Gunpla that fall in those categories anyway if ...

HG Gundam G40 Industrial Design Ver. Unboxing

It’s here: the 40th anniversary Gunpla itself: the HG Gundam G40 Industrial Design Ver. We first saw this kit revealed at the All Japan Model & Hobby Show earlier this year. It’s designed by Ken Okuyama, and its standout feature is that it’s an HG kit that doesn’t use any polycaps. The cover is a solid matte black with semi-reflective silver print for the kit name ̵...

Pokemon Plamo Kyurem Build & Review

It looks like I missed the photo of the first section of instructions, so we’re starting the Kyurem build with this photo of the completed first page! It builds the head and part of the torso, including the gimmick you can see inside that’s going to control some movement. The eye stickers have been applied — the only stickers I ended up using on this kit. Next, we’re finish...

Pokemon Plamo Kyurem Unboxing

Kyurem is a Generation V legendary Pokemon, which can’t evolve but can have two additional forms (Black and White). This 2011 Pokemon Plamo release covers the standard version of Kyurem in a very simple kit. The Box Bandai lays out the four runners that come in the kit as well as the small (yay!) sticker sheet, and shows what the instructions will look like. This panel shows off the clear pa...

On this episode, we’re looking at Frankenstein from “Fate/Grand Order”! But this isn’t the typical Berserker Class Frankenstein, Max Factory has brought her to life in her Saber Class form, which means she’s ready for the beach! Check out her adorable Stage 1 appearance, complete with her giant weapon that fully recreates her art from the game. In this episode:–...

Haropla Zakrello Haro Unboxing

A new Haropla has appeared — the Haropla Zakrello Haro is here! Molded in yellow, this little Haro has thrusters(?) on the bottom to give him a boost, and… blade arms. Best of all, the design of the box is somehow retro-looking, which goes really well with the color scheme of the kit! Let’s get to it! The Box Bandai only dedicates one slim side of the box to a preview of the kit,...

RG Nu Gundam Fin Funnel Effect Set Unboxing

The RG Nu Gundam Fin Funnel Effect Set is finally here, a change of pace in the steady stream of HGBD:R kits that we’ve been seeing. This kit is a limited edition, meaning it’s possible that once current supply is gone, Bandai might not produce any more. There’s one more precursor we should mention: this kit does include parts to build the Nu Gundam itself, in case there was...

HGBD:R Gundam Seltzam Unboxing

The latest “Re:Rise” kit just arrived at the warehouse: the HGBD:R Gundam Seltzam! Its unique design features an oversized articulated arm — the Seltsam Arm (very creative, of course) — and a big ol’ lance-like weapon called the Hyper Destlance. The Box Those very two characteristic features are shown off here on one side of the box. You can see that the Seltzam arm e...
