  16. Why don’t more games get kit versions? with the upcoming revision of FFVII what are the chances of some plamo?
    Another game I would have liked to see in kit form was Horizon Zero Dawn, those Mecha looked like they had Gunpla parts.

    Reply
    • Well that remake version of Final Fantasy VII will come out whenever it does.
      There hasn’t been any info, leaks, etc at all for quite a while.

      Horizon Zero Dawn plamo would be cool, but it’s not an anime/manga and the licensing rights might not make it worth it; especially given that Bandai’s licenses as is and product line ups as is are already vastly profitable.
      Was the game even popular in Japan?
      If it wasn’t popular then it’s not likely Bandai would even make plamo for it.

      Reply
      • Yes your right, its just wishfull thinking on my part. While we awaite news on the remake their is the Switch release of VII on the 26th which I am considering and check out my media for my Chocobo Char concept which im building.

  19. FaceGram. Now that’s a good idea!
    I really like the Fullmetal Panic series and the Arbalest is a really cool design.
    Fun fact, the arbalest is a type of crossbow.

  20. I’m glad I picked up the Keroro kit as a birthday gift for a friend, looks awesome and I’m sure my friend will love it!

  21. I recently ordered the Sergent Keroro set on HLJ. I was scrolling through the newly released section and stumbled upon that rediculous design and I just had to build it and display it on my shelf. Do you guys remember the Sergeant Frog fighting game that came out on the PS2 in Japan? It had a bunch of gundam items and weapons that you could pick up on the field. 😊

  22. I’m curious about this Hatsune Miku

  23. Great! Thank you ^_^

  24. That Keroro kit is awesome. I like that it comes with the mecha and a figure.

  25. Watched Keroro on Animax by the time I barely understood English.

    Reply
  26. That Yamato turret will probably look amazing after you slap some paint on it.

    Reply
  27. I’d like to get an Arbalest

    Reply
  28. Foolish Pekoponians!
    The more you promote the glorious merchandise of the Keroro Platoon, the closer they come to conquering us all!

    That or the funds will just be funneled into buying more Gunpla.

  29. The arbalest with this deployment booster looks pretty badass!

  30. nice episode

    Reply
  31. The new head on the Arbalest looks more like the one in the anime, old one is from the manga. Overall it looks like an amazing kit with very nice details. Would love to see if they also make the Codarl Arm Slaves

    Reply
  32. Arbalest looks cool. can’t wait to see the finish build

    Reply
  33. Sweet Arbalest model, though one that can really benefit from a nice paintjob.

    Reply
  34. Bandai does such a great job with mecha plamo even outside of gunpla. I hope they make a deal with Rooster Teeth to make plamo of the holons from ‘gen:LOCK!’

    Reply
  35. That turret looks amazing, it literally screams painting. Would make an excellent desktop piece.

  36. Thicc boy*, best comment ever 🤣

    Reply
  37. I really like the Frame Arms Girls, but I wish they’d wear more than their underwear, I do find it embarrassing. Could always do with that discount though! Might help me put some proper clothes on them, lol.

  38. Full metal panic was my first mecha anime. Fumoffu forever

    Reply
  39. You should watch Fullmetal Panic, Todd. You and your girlfriend would love. You for the mechs and fights, her for the romance and comedy. I love the franchise and love it since the early-2000’s….. Yeah, the series is that old.

    Reply
  40. I always hated that Keroro anime so I don’t understand why I like those robots so much. What is happenning to me?

    Reply
  41. Hey, can I win please

    Reply
  42. Todd, Do you know the difference between Bandai 30 minutes mission kits and HG gunplas? Would like to see an comparison between these two.

    Reply
  43. The Mecha Keroro looks like a lot of fun, but I got my eye on that Arbalest!

    Reply
  44. The Arbalest has the best flight pack I have seen on a kit.

    Reply
  45. Hello, that arbalest with flight pack looks just great… The Yamato 18mm cannon turret looks awesome too. But, I also saw some of the Bandai 30 minutes mission kits… What is the difference with HG gunplas? Are they compatible for custom ? Because it looks just like they were made for it ! And the options packs looks good too.. Would like to see a Comparison with thr hg and/or a Review of those.. or maybe a “tutorial” about how they really do work…

    Reply
  46. i will add the arbalest into one of my backlog. My wallet is crying right now..

    Reply
  47. Give me a pick so I can order some more kits from HLJ. Also I really like the frog mecha with how it parodies Gundam.

    Reply
  48. That flight pack on the FMP kit, its a must get! Also the turret looks like a coffee cup of death.

    Reply
  49. What will be released in March???

    Reply
  50. I love how the comment section turned into what franchise bandai should make model kits for next.

    I mostly want to see more mechanized digimon redesignes like they did with omnimon/omegamon.

    Reply
  51. That Sergeant Keroro gunpla is sooooo cute!!

    Reply
  52. That turret gave me ideas to pair it with some 1/6th scale stuff…

    Reply
  53. I saw the Keroro robo kits at C3AFA HK in real, they look like really fun kits!

    Reply
  54. So the Keroro kits is basically the same as the old ones, but combined with the characters in the box instead of being sold separately. I think instead of just remaking them, Bandai should have made a 2.0 Version.

    Reply
  55. Love watching but my wallet does not because of the massive backlog of kits I have to build but wants a few more

    Reply
  56. Another awesome review of Keroro. Thanks.

  57. Looking forward to seeing those Kotobukiya kits.

  59. Do you know if Bandai is going to re-release the other Keroro MKII units as the special anniversary editions too?
