• [JCOLLECTOR] Bandai Plastic Models Roundup: May 2014

    For the month of May, there seems to be a lull period for Gunpla, with only 2 Gundam Unicorn kits and 2 add-on parts while focusing on releasing more varied Bandai model kits from One Piece and the currently airing show based on a Bandai card game, Majin Bone.

    Chopper Robo Unit 3 Chopper Submarine and Chopper Robot 4 Chopper Drill

    From the Chopper Robo series comes the Chopper Submarine and the Chopper Drill! You can combine all 5 parts to create the Giant Chopper Robo, 2 sections can be combined as well. It uses the touch gate for easy removal. It also comes with a variety of Chopper face stickers and you have 2 swappable head parts. These two units form the arms of the Giant Chopper Robo.


    31st May 2014

    Debuting on 31st May is the new Majin Bone series. Each kit is made with a touch gate and runner lock for easy construction. The joints are made in such a way as to create free movement and really cool poses. Each section can be easily replaced with different armors to create your own unique fighter. They also all come with special effect parts.


    Majin Bone 01 BF Dragon Bone

    The first in the new Majin Bone line comes the Dragon Bone. The Dragon Bone has a unique right arm with a special Dragon mold and the entire armor has a dragon gimmck.


    Majin Bone 02 Shark Bone

    The second in the line is the Shark Bone. It has a really streamlined body like that of a shark and it has really sharp features.


    Majin Bone 03 Leo Bone

    The third in the line is the Leo Bone. Sporting a lion gimmick, it has its own custom shield part as well as a unique cape.

    There we have it for the month of May. Doesn’t seem to be much in terms of Gunpla this month. I do want to get the Kshatriya Repaired eventually, seeing that I already have the normal Kshatriya. The Majin Bone looks pretty cool though! I’ll have to watch the series before I plan to invest in it. Seems like I’ll be trying to catch up on my backlog this month!

    Are you guys setting your sights on any of these this month? Which one?
