    MG 1/100 Hi-v Gundam Ver. Ka


    A surprise hit in the middle of the year is Hajime Katoki’s newly proportioned MG Hi-v Gundam Ver. Ka , a very popular design of many Gundam fans from the Novel and currently running manga Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika’s Children. By using the technology and know-how of the MG v Gundam Ver. Ka, the MG Hi-v Gundam Ver. Ka was born.  This model kit is able to use the Gunpla LED Unit. All of its original weapons have been remade for this kit such as its signature Funnels and backpack, forearm Beam Saber and Beam Rifle. It also comes with the v Gundam Ver. Ka’s personalized stand.

    Danball Senki 057 LBX Empeor M3 (LBX Emperor M5 Conversion model)


    The upgraded version of the Emperor M2 from the original Danball Senki TV series and game comes the game original Emperor M3 from Danball Senki Wars. The model kit can also transform to the official Danball Senki side story original LBX model, the Emperor M5. The model kit can be transformed to the M5 after building the M3 kit base. It comes with a new Titania hammer and original shield weapon parts.

    Youkai Watch 07 Manojishi


    From the hit TV and game series Youkai Watch comes the Manojishi! It is made with the touch gate technology to allow for easy construction.  The eyes can be closed and opened, allowing you to display it in its enlightened form where the characters on its floating tails will be displayed.  Its sword can also be opened to reveal the characters hidden inside.


    There we have it for August. It’s a nice selection of model from quite a few series. Needless to say, I’ll be getting the MG Hi-v Gundam Ver. Ka. Its one of my favorite funnel use mobile suits and seeing I have yet to get the original MG Hi-v Gundam, it will be a nice addition to my collection. The original Emperor was my favorite LBX model kit actually so I think the Emperor M3/M5 would be nice addition displayed next to its elder brother! Which model kits do you plan to get this month, new or old? Share your plans below!
