Gunpla TV at the 2014 Shizuoka Hobby Show with the latest from Bandai and Hasegawa!

The Gunpla TV crew made the trek out to Shizuoka early yesterday morning. Does the Bullet Train count as a trek?

Bandai had been extremely quiet on what would be appearing at the show, and boy, were we surprised when we discovered a whole new Gundam Model Kit line there! Yes, Bandai is adding a new Plamo line to their already exhaustive catalogue–this one dubbed the RE/100 Line, which stands for Reborn One Hundred. This lineup appears to be Bandai’s way to give us the big mobile suits we have always wanted in 1/100 scale and yet keep costs down by doing away with the inner frame that is found in Master Grade kits. We will talk about this more in future episodes.

The other big surprise was the announcement of a MG Hi-Nu Gundam Ver. Ka, to be released in August. After the Nu Gundam Ver. Ka and the Sazabi Ver. Ka, it’s no surprise that the Hi-Nu gets the Ver. Ka treatment, and was it ever a beauty!

The 86cm tall 1/144-scale Neo Zeong was also on display. The kit will come with a dedicated display base with a hefty chunk of acrylic pipe to keep this monster standing tall!

More new Gundam releases presented by Bandai included a brilliantly painted High Grade Zaku 1 (Gundam Thunderbolt version), the HGUC Schuzrum Galluss, and the HGUC Zssa Unicorn version.

Unpainted Gundam kits shown were the HGUC Rozen Zulu (Episode 7 version) and the HGUC 1/144 Zeta Plus Unicorn version.

Bandai also had some non-Gundam items to show off, including Domeru’s ship from “Space Battleship Yamato 2199,” enormous even in 1/1000 scale! And a new highly posable Scopedog sporting space-maneuvering equipment was on display as well.

Hasegawa also debuted some exciting Macross items, including a fully armed 1/48 VF-1J that can be painted up as either Max or Miria’s machine. Maschinen Krieger was also well-represented, with painted MK44s present and posed to show off their opening hatch and superb cockpit detail.

Be sure to check out the video for everything we saw at the Bandai booth, and click the links below to see all the Future Gunpla releases. And be sure to watch the whole video to see the other Mecha plamo releases that were shown at the Shizuoka Hobby Show.

      • That was just a rumor.

        • I hope that your wrong cause I would totally love a pg unicorn would have to put up another shelf though

        • Its no rumor i saw the PG unicorn gundam

          • Nice troll, no one fell for it

    • A PG RX-0 would make my year, Bandai!!! XD

  2. A Unicorn as a PG would be pretty cool. But for me it would be a 3 way tie between Freedom, GX 9900 and the Nu Gundam. DAM! That Neo Zeong is huge. To revert back to a kid “I WANT I WANT”!. I have a feeling it will be at least the same price as the PG Strike Freedom of 25,000 Yen or more. Hopefully I’m wrong because by the time shipping is included I might have to pay import duties and tax. Then we do I put the beast?

  12. I would die(in a good way) if they did a PG GX-9900 but the unicorn gundam will look amazing maybe if they did LEDs to make the psycho frame change from pink to green.

  14. Syd FYI the diorama was Axis from Char’s Counter Attach with the Nu-Gundam pushing it back into space and the other suits trying to help, towards the end of the movie. Thought I would share.
    Thanks again

  15. Seeing the RG Z’gok makes me even more excited. And I’ll definitely be preordering that HG fenice rinascita!

    Reply
  16. Wing Gundam Rinascita is soooo awesome…
    I’d really have to get my hands on that kit…
    And the Neo Zeong…Wow it’s huge…
    I knew it was gonna be huge but I don’t think it will be this awesome…
    It almost half of you Syd (a little exaggerating is cool right?)…
    And the Shinden II Ridgebacks from Ace Combat is totally cool…
    Man I hope I’d live in Japan…

  17. What do you guys think about the (katekyo hitman) reborn100 line? I don’t like that they won’t have inner frames but if it’s the only way to get a 1/100 nightingale (and maybe kshatriya?)…

    Reply
    • Kit would be super expensive if it had a full inner frame.

      Reply
      • No doubt! It’s a worthwhile compromise I guess!

        Reply
  18. Can’t wait to see more from the RE/100 line and I’m also really looking forward to the RE/100 Gundam mkIII
