    From Episode 7 of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn boasting enormous firepower, Full Frontal’s Mobile Armor the Neo Zeong will finally be released! Standing at a whopping 86cm tall, it is the tallest Gunpla in existence. It comes with a detachable HGUC Sinanju which can be removed. The two Sturm Boosters are removable as well. The Sinanju customise use Bazooka is also replicated for the first time in HGUC scale and it can be deployed in the short and long barrel versions! Last but not least it comes with a whopping 500 over parts which is constructed over a dual layer structure to form the entire Neo Zeong!


    Youkai Watch 03 Bushi Nyan

    The legendary youkai Bushi Nyan from Youkai Watch is replicated in model form. The runners are created with touch gate so construction is pretty simple! Its helmet can be detached and be displayed with the normal Bushi Nyan ears. It also comes with a special display base just for it.


    Mega Lucario

    The updated Mega Evoultion of Lucario from Pokemon X/Y is finally releasing as a model kit! Employing ball joints on all the joint parts, Mega Lucario has a high range of articulation for a Pokepla! The latest in Pokemon plastic models, Mega Lucario uses the latest plastic model advancements to create a articulate model able to be displayed in dynamic poses. Re-create it signatures moves with its articulation!

    That wraps up the June plastic models! Its high time that the Turn X got a MG model kit and I’m definitely getting that in the near future. It is also great to see the Gouf R35 with a new Gouf mould so its definitely a must get. However the HGUC Neo Zeong takes the cake this month. The tallest Gunpla in existence and I’ve got mine pre-ordered already. It definitely wasn’t cheap but I guarantee you’ll be seeing a review here as soon as I’ve received it!
