This week, our new plamo includes stunning new kits from Kyoukai Senki & 30 Minutes Missions! Outside of Bandai, Aoshima offers two new Patlabor kits, and on the more unusual side of things, we’ve got scale scaffolding for your mecha displays and a Gundam umbrella fans will love — check it all out below!
If any kits in this post are backordered when you read this, don’t worry — Bandai is great about restocking periodically. But, you’ll want to get your order in to secure a spot in line for the next restock!
Kyoukai Senki / AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline
In a new line-up of HG model kits from “Kyoukai Senki” by Bandai comes the HG MAILeS Jogan! The Jogan can be deployed in a diverse selection of various poses and states thanks to replaceable parts, including a badass mid-shot pose.
In a new line-up of HG model kits from “Kyoukai Senki” by Bandai comes the HG Armored Special Carrier (ASC)! The protective shutter in front of the vehicle can be opened and closed, along with the rear on both sides. The tires can also rotate. Load up the mechs from the series into this transport vehicle, too! Battle Claws for the HG Kenbu are included as a bonus part, as well.
30 Minutes Missions
The first “variable mass production machine” in the 30MM series is the new aircraft of the United Earth Forces – the eEXM-30 Espossito Alpha! This 30MM can transform into flight mode and each part of the body can also be customized however the user likes. By combining with other Espossito and Exa-vehicles (sold separately), you can make it an even more unique machine.
This Customized Weapons set has a fantasy theme! Equip your 30MM (30Minutes Missions) figures with fantasy-style weapons and watch them rock! The tip parts can be rearranged for customization, and you can customize the gun from a large combined gun to a small handgun.
Aoshima brushes up their kit of the AV-98 Ingram Unit 1 from “Patlabor” under the supervision of desinger Yutaka Izubuchi! The flexible fabric covering over the Ingram’s joints are realistically sculpted and cast in plastic; the leg hatch and cockpit hatch can be opened and closed. A pilot figure of Akira Izumino is included too.
The compact Type 98 special command vehicle from “Patlabor” gets a kit from Aoshima — and you get a set of two! The front hatch and side doors of this rugged, high-mobility unit can be built opened or closed; three driver figures are included (Asuma Shinohara, Kanuka Clancy and Takeo Kumagai), as are three guard robots (BEL-1999 Cardia). Waterslide decals are included for their markings, with markings for two different units included. This kit is molded in color, and snaps together.
P.M. Office A’s popular scaffold kit is back! Its structure is similar to that of real scaffolding, so it’s easy to assemble; reproduce “under construction” scenes by combining it with buildings, vehicles and robots, and use multiple sets for a large construction site. It works well with models scaled from 1/64 to 1/100, so the possibilities are endless — let your imagination go wild!
Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team Folding Umbrella
(for Both Sunny and Rainy Weather)
This folding umbrella is perfect for any “Mobile Suit Gundam” fan who might get rained on someday! It features an 08th MS Team-inspired pattern, and it can be used on sunny days too thanks to its UV-cut fabric that reduces harmful UV rays by up to 99%! The ribs feature partial fiberglass construction for extra durability, and the umbrella folds up small so you can take it with you everywhere you go; it comes with a special case, too.
