Gunpla TV – Sakura & Ichiro’s Kobu-Kai

Starting with a hit game released by Segam on the Sega Saturn, “Sakura Wars” has since turned into a multi-media franchise that spans games, anime, manga, and more!

Bandai has gotten into the recent “Sakura Wars” revival by releasing two brand new kits based off the second “Sakura Wars” game, which was released in 1998. Due to the game being set in a fantasy world based around Japan in the 1920s, these two Kobu-Kai units are rather steam punk-ish in design!

In this episode:
1/20 HG Koubu Kai (Ichiro Ogami Use)
1/20 HG Koubu Kai (Sakura Shinguji Use)

In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.

  2. I was hoping that the pilots are already painted out of the box as shown on the pictures. But nonetheless, these kits look cool. I have always been a fan of the Sakura Wars (TV series) as well as the opening theme.

  4. Ooh!! What a nostalgia hit! Never actually played any of the games, but I did watch the original anime series and OVAs. Loved the mecha designs so much that I got a few of the old kits back in the day, why do you keep tempting me to get more non-Gundam stuff?!? XD

  6. Man, such cool robot designs! But I don’t know about these kits. They need more paint job than I expected.

  7. I’m terrified to try to pain the figures inside, but I must try!

  8. I presume these are not undergated. With some painting these could look quite nice, the swords already have good color separation.

  9. Don’t care for the looks really but seeing how big the pilot is and that the new Sakura Wars game is coming to NA, I might put one of these kits in my maybe list.
