Upcoming : Hasegawa Crusher Joe Fighter 1

The actual model of the upcoming Fighter 1 from Crusher Joe has appeared. Looks good!

A definite get for me! More pictures on Hobbysearch.

Upcoming : Bandai Arbalest with Emergency Deployment Booster

I’m looking forward to this one though I’m not quite sure why Arbalest is in a subdued color scheme. I think I really need to watch the latest Full Metal Panic series.

This one is coming in February @ 4,320 JPY. More pictures at Hobby Search.

Upcoming : Hasegawa Crusher Joe Fighter 1

It’s about time I say! Back in the 1980s I had the 1/144 Takara release and of course, I wrecked it by painting with Tamiya markers. Since this is from Hasegawa’s Creative Works line, it should be quite nicely detailed. Plus it’s in a nice 1/72 scale to boot.

Can’t wait for the actual finished kit to be shown. More pics at Hobby Search.

Upcoming : Super Minipla Beast King Go-Lion

Official pictures of this upcoming toy/kit are now online. Each lion will be packaged in its own box with weapons and a stick of chewing gum. They can then be combined into this 18cm tall Super Robot.

The proportions of the individual lions look off to me but Go-Lion itself looks brilliant. And it seems to be quite poseable too. Amazing! Even better is that it’s probably the cheapest route you can take right now to own a combining Go-Lion.

Coming in August @ 5,292 JPY. More pictures on Hobbysearch.

Upcoming : Bandai 1/72 B-wing Starfighter

Bandai has released official pics of their upcoming 1/72 B-Wing Starfighter. This finally completes the 4 Rebel Alliance Starfighters in 1/72 scale. This will uniquely feature a Sullustan pilot figure and ‘glowing’ exhaust parts with an optional LED unit.

Another unique feature is revealed if you clicked onto the announcement of the 1/2,700,000 (lol) Death Star II. With some forced perspective, you can model the B-wing together with the Death Star ‘to recall the illustrations of the concept artist Ralph Macquarie (sic)!’.

Yeesh, I can only feel my wallet groaning…

This is coming in August 2018 @ 4,980JPY. More pictures on Bandai Hobby Site.
