This week brings an array of new releases from popular anime series, and then some! Bandai may be benched this week, but Good Smile Company, Hasegawa, and others have our backs. Check out this week’s latest plamo, from Evangelion, to My Hero Academia, Captain Harlock, and more!
Evangelion x Mechatro
From the Mechatro WeGo collaboration with “Evangelion” comes a WeGo kit based on Unit-08! In addition to featuring EVA Unit-08’s distinctive colors and markings, it’s also equipped with mighty power arms! An adorable figure of Makinami Mari Illustrious is also included.
My Hero Academia
“My Hero Academia” is seeing some MODEROID plastic model kit action from Good Smile Company, featuring Izuku Midoriya! The kit features parts separated into 7 different colored runners along with pre-painted parts, making it easy to recreate Deku’s iconic and dynamic appearance with just a simple assembly. After assembly, the model can be freely posed just like an action figure!
Archer/Altria Pendragon from “Fate/Grand Order” joins the Assemble Heroines Summer Queens figure lineup from Ourtreasure! Seen in her swimsuit outfit from the limited-time event “Chaldea Summer Memory,” she’s on the run, playfully aiming a water gun behind her, with her sword lightly carried in her other hand. This unique figure is semi-finished, with her head and water gun fully assembled and painted; her body parts are molded in color, so she’ll look great right after you put her together (although you can certainly paint her if you like)! Her neck features a ball joint so her head can be moved slightly, so you can enjoy subtle changes in gesture.
Kotobukiya’s Mega Man X Force Armor model kit gets an upgraded version with a massive haul of effect parts, making it the biggest set in the series so far! It comes with the largest Plasma Charge Shot effect part, as well as a new ‘smiling’ face part that gives X a distinct look from the previous kit. The Plasma Charge Shot Arm Parts which come in a new coloration can be attached to the separately sold MEGA MAN X FORCE ARMOR or X Rising Fire version, too!
S model kit of the battleship Arcadia from “Space Pirate Captain Harlock” with the battering ram on the bow.
It’s back for a re-release! From the YouTube Originals series “OBSOLETE” by Gen Urobuchi comes 1/35 scale plastic model kits. This plastic model kit is of the Outcast Brigade’s TOPEX-12 Exacto. The EXOFRAME can be recreated by attaching armor to the common base frame that features 28 points of articulation. Note: This kit features mostly snap-fit assembly, but some parts may require glue.
No cutting or painting required, and easy to assemble — that’s Dragonhorse’s Paper Diorama tent set! This dome-shaped tent is intended for up to three 1/12-scale figures; the opening opens and closes freely. It also comes with a backpack and a rolled-up silver aluminum mat (mat does not unroll). The items assemble with a plug-in structure, and their durability and water resistance are improved with double-sided PP coating processing. Figure shown is not included. Combine it with the Camping Equipment Set to ensure your figures have a truly awesome camping experience!
