It's that time of the year - the annual Shizuoka Hobby Show is back, where a lot of companies showcase their latest models. Let us see what Bandai has to offer for the Gunpla this year. :o

Every year there is always a spotlight among all the Gunpla shown in Bandai's booth. This year's spotlight is the MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Gundam Ver 3.0, whose information happened to have been "leaked" out yesterday.

With the newly redesigned MG RX-78-2 Gundam, how many people will be looking forward to it? The other new ones seem to be mostly 1/144 models from the Universal Century series as well as those from SEED Astray side story. I may have my eyes on the Doven Wolf, but otherwise not much else at the moment.

  1. HGUC Gerbera Tetra, RG GP01-Fb... I'M SOLD!

    Is it me or the HGUC Masala (bad joke, lel) is one X-BAWKS HUEG kit or what?...

    A HG Gold Frame Amatsu?... yow...

    1. Gerbera Tetra sure took its time, but now 0083 has most of its missing pieces! Also good to see Gold Frame Amatsu to follow suit after Blue Frame 2nd L.

      HGUC Tikka Masala sure looks like a huge meal to fit in the stomach! It's going to need a bigger-than-usual takeaway box! XD

  2. Gunpla will be around forever if they keep these sets up. I just love the details and they really grab you to own one. I hope to get to at least one con this year and hopefully not go broke - lol.

    1. I too would love to go to an event like this and see the latest teasers in person! Even though this kind of event is not one for selling stuff, but more of an exhibition, it would be a great experience nonetheless!
