New Gunpla kits have been announced at Bandais' booth from 51st Shizuoka Hobby Show last weekend!
MG 1/100 Buster Gundam, September release, 4200 Yen
MG 1/100 Gundam AGE-2 Normal, August release, 4410 Yen
Models of what appears to be Warlock and Snow White (yes that's its name) from Gundam Wing: Frozen Teardrop novel, based on this particular illustration. New MG project is currently being planned for this year.
HG 1/144 Gundam AGE-3 Orbital, August release, 1890 Yen
HG 1/144 Dark Hound, July release, 1575 Yen
HG 1/144 G-EXES Jackedge, July release, 1260 Yen
HGUC 1/144 Hambrabi, August release, 1785 Yen
And more of those that have been announced earlier but now in colour:
HGUC 1/144 ReZEL C Type (Defenser B-Unit, General Revil deployment unit), June release, 2730 Yen
HGUC 1/144 Zaku Mariner, July release, 1470 Yen
HGUC 1/144 Base Jabber, July release, 1050 Yen
A relatively new side line, called Builders Parts (ビルダーズパーツ), will have a lot of model support parts such as hands, verniers, and effect parts for both 1/100 and 1/144 scale Gunpla
This year's stuff don't seem to give as much of a "wow" feeling compared to last year's. Even though they have already been anticipated in the first place, AGE-2 Normal and Buster will be something for fans to look forward to along with MG Marasai that is to be released soon. Now with MG Buster reaveled, only MG Aegis is left that has not been announced yet from the first 5 Gundams in Gundam SEED, though this will probably use a very different frame from Strike's, which is also adopted by Duel and most likely Buster too.
Personally I think that the nicest surprise would be Hambrabi, of which the only other model form it appeared before was one released back in 1994. The rumours of Byarlant Custom & Aqua didn't happen though, of which I won't mind getting either of them.
There are not so many grunt units announced compared to last year's event, which was I was quite excited for. The new Gundam AGE Gunplas and MS designs aren't bad looking though, especially those from Visidian space pirates which are to make appearance in the next episode this coming Sunday.
The Builders Parts seem to be very similar to WAVE's modelling support parts. The effect parts does grab some of my interest though. While I'm not so sure how many I'm interested in this year's event, maybe things will become more certain as more info is released and that more Gunpla is announced in the future months. :o
