Join Syd and Ryan on the floor of the All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2015 right on opening day! We’re taking a look at the latest Sci-Fi and Gundam releases from your favorite manufacturers. Don’t miss the great new upcoming kits and other sci-fi goodness from Bandai, Kotobukiya, Wave, and Hasegawa!
Bandai continues its stellar lineup of Gundam kits, revealing their outstanding new Real Grade XXXG-01W Wing Gundam, Endless Waltz version! Fully transformable between flight mode and robot mode, this heavily-armed Gundam arrives soon!
Also on tap is the MG V2 Gundam Ver. Ka, which can also spend time on your shelf in either its bipedal or winged form! The HGUC Qubeley also made its debut, as did a new MG RX-78-02 Gundam, loaded with weapons and effects parts!
And heightening our anticipation for the December release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Captain Phasma joins the S.H. Figuarts lineup, complete with cloak and blaster rifle!
Kotobukiya makes “Zoids” fans worldwide extremely happy with their new Highend Master Model of the EZ-036 Death Stinger! This beast will be an imposing 45cm long when in its Sea Scorpion mode.
An impressive non-scale Mazin Kaizer also made its debut, as did a highly detailed 1/100 Sahelanthropus bipedal tank from “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain!” And the iconic Stormtrooper from “Star Wars” joins the Artfx+ lineup, available in a set of two!
The massively powerful CO3 Malicious R.I.P.3/M Blue Magnolia takes the Armored Core spotlight, and Aoonihime Shiki from “Phantasy Star Online 2” was a serene (and heavily-armed) presence in deep blue armor! Frame Arms Girl Stiletto is also armed to the teeth and ready for a fight!
From “Z-Knights,” the mighty Marine Kaizer in its Type V form gets a re-release, and the adorable Usagia joins the “Hoi-Hoi-San” family!
Hasegawa has what Macross fans want! A limited-edition 1/4000 kit of the SDF-1 Macross Cruiser Fortress with Prometheus and Daedalus, based on the movie version of the SDF-1 but incorporating the essence of the TV version too, will be on the way in October!
In the works for November release is the 1/72 VF-25F/S Super Messiah Macross F. This non-transformable version of Hasegawa’s intricately detailed VF-25F/S comes with its Super Packs for added performance, firepower and speed! Decals will be included to identify it as the unit flown by either Alto Saotome or Ozma Lee.
Wave makes a big sci-fi splash with its set of four 1/35-scale Scopedog Turbo Customs from “Votoms: The Last Red Shoulder!” Also featured are the late mass-production version of the spider-like H.A.F.S. Gladiator from “Maschinen Krieger,” and a limited re-release of its Space Pod Crab 03 set of two! The ornate AAA Wunder from “Evangelion:3.0” soars into view in December.
Max Factory had some great surprises in store for us, with tons of new additions to their PLAMAX line, including KanColle: Kuchikukan x Kanmusu Shimakaze, and a 35MAX Military Modern Russia Tanker Set!
There was also an amazing selection of new figures from “KanColle,” including Atago and Kouwan Seiki in 1/8 scale, and much more! A Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty figma of the Gurlukovich Mercenary is also coming soon!
