Holy crap! A Tect garage kit! I don't think I've seen one of those things in over 15 years! You need to post more pics of that in your plog. I've always been curious how those late '90s. ear;u 2000's garage kits are. Tect's stuff was all non-poseable, right? If only you had some of Kotobukiya's Front Mission garage kits, too.

The Ishtar is a very nice kit. I've got the sister kit "Shinden". If it's like Shinden it's actually great for 28mm and with a bit of work you can fit a 28/25mm figure in the cockpit.

New Gundam series had its full reveal today. The show is going to be called Gundam Tekketsu: The Iron-Blooded Orphans. Bandai showed off a bunch of new models for the line as well. Much like Reconguista, it looks like this series will, at the very least have very cool designs. So, even if the show is total crap like Reconguista, at least the models kits will be good.

Bad guy suits, Grays


Land and space type Grays


Don't know what these are, but I want them all.


And, I guess there's a Gundam, too.


The Gundam itself is called the Gundam Barbatos and it looks like there's a theme of customizeability to the whole series. Apparently the Gundam itself is a salvaged wreck that will be getting frequent upgrades as the show goes on. Apparently the main cast will be scavenging and cannibalizing other Mobile Suits to upgrade the Barbatos. So, of course that means this will be represented in the line. There's already a weapon set announced (with a mini MS included) and the 1/100 Barbatos will have a full internal skeleton.

There was supposed to be an announcement about plot details in English, but all I found so far was a Google translated version. It sounds vaguely similar to the setting of Gundam X, being post apocalyptic, but with society rebuilding itself. The details I got mentioned that the Earth Federation or whatever its equivalent in this alternate universe is has collapsed, but society is on the mend. The main cast is a bunch of war orphaned child soldiers who are part of a PMC. There was mention of Mars in the details, but the translation was so bad, I couldn't make much sense of it. It's possible that Martians will be the baddies this time around. The preview showed some imperialistic looking Spacenoids, so I'm guessing they're the Martians. It'll be nice to see a Gundam series (that isn't AGE) leave the Earth Sphere.

Oh, I should probably mention, the kits are due to begin releasing in October.

Hopefully the show is better than Gundam X. I'm not sold on the new Gundam just yet (unlike G-Self, which was a love at first sight), but the grunts look cool and unorthodox for Gundam; no Zaku look-alikes this time, yeah!

Judging by the armaments, the show will focus on close quarters combat. Hopefully again, it won't be as lame as G Gundam.

After doing a bit of research - is it just me or is Bandai ripping off Kotobukiya's Frame Arms line?

By having the internal frames and modular builds? Nah, that same concept was used way back in G-Savior. They just didn't actually implement it with the one whole kit they made. Unless you're referring to the mechs' designs looking like Frame Arms? In which case, it looks like they might be using multiple mecha designers on this one.

The Grays are total Zakus though. I love their designs. They remind me of the Sleipnir from Aldnoah Zero mixed with a Leo.

I'm going to ignore those comments about X and G though. Blasphemy.

Those really are nice! The Grays are particularly slick. Forgive my ignorance, but about what size and price will these be?

If the skeleton is anything like the one on the RG kits, the big difference between the Bandai kits and the Frame Arms line is that the skeleton in the Bandai model is going to be "all assembly required".

And that style of skeleton dates back to the 1/60 Perfect Grade models, and Bandai has been slowly adapting smaller kits to use the same sort of skeleton.

Hey, I enjoyed Reconguista more than all but the original Gundam (yes, even beyond Zeta, 8th MS)!

For the new show, those bad guy kits are some of the most stylish of all time.

I know that. I was alluding more to the cross-compatibility between kits that appears to be the main feature of the new line (might be wrong, though). Which is coincidentally the selling point of Frame Arms.

10-15 bucks in Japan and 12-13 cm tall for a regular 1/144 High Grade kit.

So you meant "not ripping off", because the two companies are both competent at what they do.

C3 Hobby Show is going on right now in Japan. Most of what I've seen is uninteresting or we've already seen it. However, new Gundam stuff has been shown along with confirmation that this new show is actually going to be set on Mars and that the main cast are Martians. Earth is confirmed to be the bad guys.

But you don't care about a show's plot details, you're interested in the stompy mechs, and there's new pics of those funky bad guy mecha.

Feast your eyes upon these beauties!









A new variant of the Graze was revealed.


more conversion/weapon sets revealed as well. (spoiler'd due to size)
Spoiler:


There's new Build Fighters Try stuff too.



And this is a legitimate kit that Bandai is going to release.

Excellent designs. If the HG's are cross-compatible, I could see myself getting the entire set. It helps they're darn cheap (8-10 bucks a pop).

There is supposed to be some cross compatibility between the 1/144 line. There's some pics floating around from the C3 Hobby Show showing the Barbatos wearing bits of Graze armor.

I posted pixs of it before, but nobody seemed interested. I was personally thinking Ariadna. But I'd have to do something about the cockpit.

Take off the Helmeted head and just put an Infinity scaled head in the chest cockpit area behind the plastic and it would look pretty bad ass.

As blasphemous as removing a zaku- style monoeyed head is, I agree- this thing would look great on the tabletop with a properly scaled head stuck in there.

Gives off a very Xabungle style vibe.
