30 Minutes Missions
1/144 30MM eEXM-S01U Forestieri 01
The new Earth Alliance fighting mech known as eEXM-S01U Forestieri 01 now joins the “30MM” (30Minutes Missions) model-kit lineup from Bandai! It’s easy to assemble with its “block” assembly system, making it easy to find and identify the parts needed next in order to assemble the kit. The new weapon known as the Roy Roy is included along with its rifle and beam sword; the hilt of the beam sword and the rifle can be attached to the backpack, and the beam sword’s hilt can also be attached to the thigh. Common 3mm joints make it easy to customize by mixing and matching parts with other 30MM series items, too.
Mashin Hero Wataru
The Amplified IMGN Fyujinmaru from “Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru” gets a new HG model kit from Bandai! Glossy injection-molded parts and gold-plated parts give the completed robot a luxurious look; its huge sword is gold-plated as well, and can be attached to its back. Various interchangeable hands are also included.
From Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse, Su-47E Berkut, piloted by the Scarlet Twins, returns to Kotobukiya’s plastic model kit lineup! The black body and scarlet illuminated parts that made this TSF so ominous in the anime are faithfully recreated. Removable motor blades for both arms and open hand parts for recreating attack scenes are also included.
The two standard A-97 Assault Cannons included with this model can not only be held in both hands, but also attached to the weapon mounts on the back. As the right shoulder is tampo printed with the emblem and the head is pre-painted, Su-47E can be recreated just by assembling the model. This model is also compatible with all types of flying bases, sold separately, so users can recreate a variety of dynamic poses.
From the masterpiece flight shooting game series, ACE COMBAT, CFA-44 in a 1/144 scale now joins Kotobukiya’s model kit series! Through the game’s data and PROJECT ACES’s cooperation, this kit perfectly captures the details of CGA-44 in the game and is a snap-fit kit that doesn’t require glue to assemble. The landing gear and weapons bays can be displayed opened or closed, with equippable EML and ADMM. MSL or UAV-45s can also be equipped to the hardpoints under the main wings. The included mini base also comes with an attachment part that can be turned 90 degrees left or right and is compatible rolling.

What is Progress God’s plan, and how is it connected with “Evorium,” the new ore discovered on Eumelia Island!? This series uses a universal core part that utilizes 3mm joints with a simple design that allows for a wide range of customization options with other products. The 3mm joints are compatible with Kotobukiya’s other original series, such as Frame Arms, Hexa Gear, Frame Arms Girl, Megami Device, and more, allowing you to create a wide range of custom mechas limited only by your imagination!

SDW Heroes Gundam
SDW Heroes Warlock Aegis Gundam
The newest “SD Gundam” lineup has started: “SD Gundam World Heroes The Legend of Dragon Knight”! Warlock Aegis Gundam is a new-generation demon king combining the characteristic silhouette of Satan Gundam with the design elements of the SD Gundam World Series. He wields a wand that inherits the design of Satan Gundam too; his head and cloak are equipped with a deployment gimmick. The detailed design inside his cloak is carefully expressed, too! The support mechanical form can be assembled by combining his cloak with the backpack and antenna.
