METAL BUILD Red Astray Gundam Photos & Order Info!

Metal Build Bandai Red Astray Gundam Up for Order

Ordinarily, the most ridiculously popular and merchandised Gundams are the “main” Gundams that belong to the main hero of a Gundam anime series. But there’s a major exception to this rule, and it’s a suit that’s only seen in a supporting role in the Gundam SEED anime!

It’s one of the most popular Gundams ever, and it’s getting the highest-end treatment from Bandai: the METAL BUILD Red Astray Gundam is now available for order! But order soon, because it is selling out fast!

Gundam Girls Generation Hoshino Fumina Figure Up for Order!

MegaHouse Gundam Girls Generation Hoshino Statue July 2015

There’s a lot to love about the Gundam Build Fighter Try anime series (which is currently nearing its end), but among my favorite aspects of the show is the fact that there is a genuine female Gundam pilot protagonist. Hoshino Fumina is a breath of fresh air in the Gundam universe, and I’ve been looking forward to a toy of her for a while.

And now, the time has come: the 1/10 Gundam Girls Generation Hoshino Fumina figure is now up for order!

MegaHouse Gundam 00 Tieria Erde Revealed & Photos!

MegaHouse Tieria Erde Gundam 00 Season 2 PVC Figure

Last year, MegaHouse held a poll that over 80,000 fans voted in to determine the next Gundam character to be released as a figure in the MegaHouse RAHDXGA (“Robot Anime Hero Deluxe Gundam Archives”–try saying that three times fast!) series. The winner of the poll shocked many people, as it was supporting character Tieria Erde from Gundam 00. But the twists don’t end there! Today MegaHouse unveiled the prototype for the long-awaited MegaHouse Gundam 00 Tieria Erde figure, and the costume they’ve chosen is… Tieria cross-dressing as a woman?!?

Robot Damashii Gundam Wing Deathscythe Gundam Figure Close-Up

It’s a case of good news/bad news for Gundam Wing fans! The good news is that Bandai has now opened pre-orders for the original Gundam Deathscythe Robot Damashii figure, the last remaining 1st Gen Gundam Wing mech needed to complete the Robot Spirits lineup!

Gundam Build Fighters 1/144 Star Build Strike Gundam Released!

Gundam Build Fighters HGBF Star Build Strike Plavsky Wing Model Kit

As much as I’m surprised by the level of enjoyment I get out of every episode that airs of the Gundam Build Fighters anime series, I’m even more surprised that Bandai has somehow managed to keep almost perfect pace at releasing new Gunpla models at the precise time that those Gundams show up and are featured in the Gundam Build Fighters anime. Case in point: even though the Star Build Strike only appeared in the anime a couple weeks ago, the Bandai HGBF 1/144 Star Build Strike Plavsky Wing model has already been released and is available for order!

Robot Damashii Gouf Custom & GM Sniper II Reissues Announced!

Robot Spirits Gouf Custom SIDE MS 107 Packaged in Box

The Bandai Robot Damashii/Robot Spirits figures line is tough to collect for those outside of Japan, and even tougher for new collectors to break in! With hundreds of Robot Damashii figures released and most of them out of production and/or web exclusives, Robot Spirits can be expensive and difficult to track down. Luckily, Bandai is reissuing some long sold-out figures in spring 2014: the Robot Damashii GM Sniper II and Gouf Custom!

Gundam MG 1/100 Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 Phenex Revealed & Photos!

Gundam Unicorn Unit 3 Phenix MG 1 100 Model Metallic Gold 2014 Bandai Kit

It’s going to be a rough couple of months for Gundam fans who are trying to avoid all spoilers for the Gundam Unicorn OVA anime episode. The primary reason that it’s going to be hard to avoid being spoiled for anything is that Bandai has been soliciting items in full force for Gundam UC Episode 7, including the topic of today’s discussion. Though it hasn’t appeared in the anime yet at all, the Mobile Suit Gundam MG 1/100 Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 Phenex Gunpla model is coming in February 2014 and is now available for order!

Gundam Build Fighters MG 1/100 Sengoku Astray Gundam in 2/2014!

Gundam Build Fighters Sengoku Astray Gundam MG 1 100 Model Bandai 2014

When I watched the first episode of the Gundam Build Fighters anime this fall, I was pretty sure it was the worst thing I’d ever seen. A few weeks and a few episodes later, and I’m happily humming the Gundam Build Fighters theme song throughout the day. I’ve been pretty content with the HG 1/144 Build Fighters Gundam models released–up until I saw the Sengoku Astray Gundam in the anime. The moment I saw it, I knew I needed a bigger and better model of that Gundam. And as fate would have it, Bandai knew it too–the MG 1/100 Sengoku Gundam Astray is now available for order!

Gundam Wing Robot Damashii Wing Gundam Revealed & Photos!

Robot Damashii Wing Gundam SIDE MS 2014 Figure

If you haven’t been paying close attention over the years, you probably aren’t even aware that the original form of one of the most well-known and popular Gundams in all of the Gundam mythos has never been captured in Robot Damashii (Robot Spirits) form. But it’s on display at Tamashii Nation 2013 now and confirmed to be released in early 2014–the long-overdue original Wing Gundam Robot Damashii Spirits figure is now up for order!
