  • You know the drill — it’s another PLANETS system armor from “Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise”! The Saturnix Gundam is a heavy machinery powerhouse that comes in two sets: the Saturnix support unit itself and a […]

    • Wish there was a third option where you can buy the armor and weapons for the core Gundams together in one box. As it is, if you want to entire Core Gundam line up, their boxes will take up a lot of needless space, even during shipping. Other than that, I like these kits, hope they dont drop this concept after this series.

    • Wow only one sticker? Nice! Looks really good, liking the core Gundam concept and the variety of combinations that can be had with all these add-ons!

    • I like these more bulky type armors. Also the V-Fin has a boxer helmet look. Bandai now needs also to release the core gundams separately as they do with the frames from the cross silhouette series.

    • It is nice things are modular and inter-changeable. But selling the weapons & armors sets separately just makes it feel like an additional expense considering you are not getting the main mobile suit and need to buy another kit just to recreate this version. It’s basically akin to DLC that video games often utilize.

  • Dave takes a look at the second entry in Masaki Apsy x huke x Good Smile Company’s plastic model series “chitocerium” — VI-carbonia adamas. Like the previous kit, this model can fold up and fit inside the […]

  • The latest MG just landed late last week: the MG Gundam Kyrios from “Mobile Suit Gundam 00!”
    The Box

    First, a front and rear view of the completed kit in a simple pose. Moving to the right, we can see the […]

    • Great to see Mobile Suit Gundam 00 MGs finally getting the releases it needed. Long overdue, but so glad we’re finally getting them all.

  • This week’s new plamo releases include something for everyone. Dave is excited for two from Kotobukiya, including the stunning Kaede Agatsuma (Kaiden) with her all-new ‘Ace Suit’ debut. And Todd is over the moon […]

    • Kyrios and Saturnix, orange Gunpla represent.

    • If the Kyrios has the same quality and stability as the Dynames, it will be a very great kit to build.

    • Kyrios looks really good, would love to see the transformation steps on the finished piece!

    • Were just one unit away from having the full Season 1 Gundam Meisters MG Gunpla team! I really hope Virtue comes with the ability to purge armour to fly as Nadleeh.

      • I’d like to see an MG GN-001 Gundam Exia getting an updated release since the one we have now is good, but a bit dated. Maybe we can get a 2.0 or a ‘Ver. Ka’ release of it?

        In regards to an MG GN-005 Gundam Virtue…
        I’m sure we’re going to get it and have the option to purge its armor parts to recreate an MG GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh; similar to the MG GAT-X102 Duel Gundam Assault Shroud and how you could display it with or without the armor.
        I’m waiting for that too as well.
        Whenever it comes out, I’ll probably get 2 sets to display with and without the armor.

    • MG GN-003 Gundam Kyrios is a must buy for me.
      I suspect that we’ll be getting a P-Bandai, Trans-Am variant later.

      The ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice Gundam’s name is ‘Infinite’; not Infinity.

    • I usually don’t care about transformation gimmicks, but this one looks kind of cool.

    • look at the size of the A1.1 box oooooooh

    • wallet rip

    • Kinda want the mech parts, just not the “little sailor girl” =/

  • Kanro, the Japanese company that makes the popular gummy line, Pure, has brought “Pokemon” into the lineup in the cutest way possible. Introducing Pure Gummy Pikachu!

    Just look at that face.

  • Decals! Washing! Scott takes you through the steps of how to get great results with these two essential modeling skills, and the Takom Blitz Jagdtiger starts to look a lot like the real thing in the process…the […]

  • A new evolutionary step forward for the High Grade series of kits is released in the form of the Infinite Justice Gundam from the “Gundam Seed Destiny” series! This kit features a level of color separation as w […]

    • Beautiful kit. So many transparent weapon options, articulation is amazing, and parts/color separation is pretty great for a HG kit.

    • More Seed! The quality of this HG kit looks stunning, such a huge improvement over the original kit I got way back when Seed Destiny first came out, and that was a 1:100 scale kit! I might need to revamp my Seed collection starting with this, haha!

    • This is very impressive for an HG. I’m surprised they’ve gotten so good.
      But I’m waiting for these to finish the Athrun MG collection:
      – MG ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice Gundam [Ver 2.0]
      – MG ZGMF-X23S Saviour Gundam

    • The justice knight has also a single colored piece and it looks great. Really an outstanding detail. But if I compare both chests, Bandai might have used the same mold for both kits, only with different colors. It’s not a totally new feature used first in this kit.

    • that hip design

    • Justice poyo

    • Looks great for an HG

    • What I wanted when the Justice Knight came out.

  • Lord Impulse is a third-generation Hexa Gear manufactured by Kotobukiya and in the series lore developed by Earthcline Biomechanics. The trick blade with its 9 flexible links and the real rubber tires that really […]

  • Look! In the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a Gundam! No – it’s a WINdam! Take to the skies with this brand new HG kit from “Gundam SEED Destiny.” This mobile suit is equipped with the sleek Jet Striker […]

  • Happy Monday!
    Over the weekend, we dove into the box of the new HG Infinite Justice Gundam, so today it’s time to take a look at the second of last week’s new Gunpla: the HGCE Windam!
    The Box

    As always, there’s […]

  • Finally — new Gunpla! This week we’re kicking off the unboxings with the new HG Infinite Justice Gundam!
    Releases have been a bit weird the past couple of months; the last Gunpla we saw, the Uraven Gundam, came […]

      Nice details for an HG kit, but I stick with the master grade for the Infinite Justice Gundam. (Oh, and a side notice: Please ask the web developer to add an image optimization service and max. image size to your WordPress. It took forever to load this page with all these HQ images.)

    • Love the dark rose red parts. And those blade and shield clear effect parts, beautiful.

  • After a short break we finally get some new Gunpla in stock to show off! 

    Fans of the series “Gundam Seed Destiny” will be pleased to see not just one, but TWO new HG releases from the series! The first is […]

    • A small lot of tiny goodness this week, always nice to see new Seed kits! That Hexa Gear looks awesome too, as does the Evil Tiga! Hope you made it in time to do whatever it is you had to do Todd! Stay safe! 😀

    • The new bases look cool!

    • Looking forward to MG Kyrios.

    • More diorama type bases would be great.

    • Hoping everything gets back to normal as soon as possible. Japan doesn’t even send packages to my country right now.

    • The HGCE ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice Gundam is nice.
      But I’m waiting for MG ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice Gundam [Ver 2.0].
      On a related note, I still find it weird how Bandai never made an HGCE ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam nor an HGCE GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam.
      I wonder if Bandai will make HGCE ZGMF-X23S Saviour Gundam.
      But personally (again), I’m waiting for MG ZGMF-X19A ∞ Justice Gundam [Ver 2.0], and also MG ZGMF-X23S Saviour Gundam to complete the Athrun’s MG collection.

      Even if your area in Japan ended the state of emergency and going back to normal, you still should be careful through at least the summer.
      A lot of places agree it is too soon and apparently a second wave will be coming and it’ll be worse.

      I still haven’t bought a Figure-Rise Standard kit at all.
      I did think about getting the Naruto one, but from what I understand it wasn’t that good and Bandai only made 1?
      Also, why is it that Bandai isn’t making anything from the RockMan franchise? I think those would sell very well.

    • ultra man… where mega man?

    • that base rocks

    • The two Seed kits look amazing. Cant wait for those.

      Hopefully Japan Post finally returns to normal work since I already have private warehouse orders that are waiting for SAL to come back for shipping.

    • great show mate. stay healthy – build gunpla!! 🙂

    • That Windam does look pretty cool… But as with others here, I miss SAL. Hope you’re all staying healthy and safe.

    • Those diorama stands look very cool. Looking forward to see the review.

  • Things are really coming together on the Takom Blitz Jagdtiger this week. Scott has completed two out of the three camouflage colors and now it’s time for the Rotbraun to be added. We then take a look at detailed […]

  • He really is! That was my favorite part of the episode 🙂

  • Set your sights on this new sniper-themed Uraven Gundam from “Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise!” Not only is this the debut of a new PLANETS system armor, but a new Core Gundam as well! This kit includes the new Core […]

    • That’s a pretty cool sniper style Gundam! I really like these core Gundams and their removable armor!

    • Love the fact that it comes with so many options right of the back. The second version of the Core Gundam looks way nicer even by itself; it can transform into a mini jet; it has an optional jet for the armor; has loads of bits; it has all its weapons; comes with a stand.

      Like the Jupitive, this is a complete kit.

    • I don’t know, the combination of colours looks a bit cheesy to me.

    • So far this is the only way to get the Core II.
      I wonder what Kousaka Youma would think, since Uraven comes in Lightning colours.

    • it reminds me of custom robo

    • want a zaku ver

  • In this episode of Hobby Wire, Scott and Brian get together to take a look at the latest scale model kits. We have quite a few from the Czech Republic to show off with fine molding and impressive details.

  • Glad you enjoyed the video — and that was exactly what we were thinking! They’re a great alternative to the price tags seen on anime figures, so we hope we see more characters in the line soon!

  • We hope so! That’d be pretty neat.

  • Anna posted a new activity comment 2 weeks ago

    We really hope so, too! The did include similar multi-layered injection molding with the recent RG Evangelion — so we’ve got our fingers crossed!

  • Have you been wondering about the Figure-rise LABO series? Well, we’re here to answer all of your questions! In this episode we explore the line, one of Bandai’s most impressive research projects, which has used […]

    • Thanks for the really educational video showing the ideas that went into this amazingly beautiful series! These kits look so amazing and cost a fraction of the price of fixed pose figures and garage kits! Really impressed!

    • I am very impressed with what Bandai can do.
      Also, given that Bandai has model kit rights to Evangelion, I suppose we can expect (eventually) a Figure-Rise LABO line up for Evangelion as well?

    • wish model kits had this

    • how about figma?

    • If I had to guess, I would bet that Bandai will soon come up with realistic surface structures in the labo series, so that textile, skin, metal, etc. feels real. At least that would be really cool.

    • I really liked the format of this video. Very informative and to the point.

    • Bandai and their “research.” Ok, Jiria!

    • I just want some of this super lovely transclear used for other more traditional kits. And pucchiguys. Lots and lots of new transclear pucchiguys.

      Not one official transclear pucchiguy. Sad. What are you doing, Bandai? Clear bears. I need more plastic addiction to fill my display cabinets.

    • I’m wondering how Bandai will apply the tech in Kotori’s dress to its gunpla lines.
