• [JCOLLECTOR] Bandai Plastic Models Roundup: October 2014


    We’re heading to the month of October, the beginning of the last quarter of the year! And with the Fall season beginning, we are getting two Gundam TV shows for the first time!

    That also means I don’t really need to explain what Gunpla will be featured this month. Gundam Reconguista in G and Gundam Build Fighters Try will be taking center stage this month. We will also be getting one new SD model and another Youkai Watch kit!

    HGBF 1/144 Build Burning Gundam

    Build Burning Gundam

    The personal Gunpla of the main character, Sekai Kamiki makes its HGBF debut! Like the user, the Gunpla uses the Jigen Haoh School of martial arts it comes with effect parts to replicate said moves!

    With its simple design, it is able to perform all kinds of dynamic fighting poses through the combination of its variety of hands parts that joints with the effect parts that makes for a Gunpla able to perfectly replicate any scene shown in the actual show!

    HGBF 1/144 Powered GM Cardigan

    GM Cardigan

    Before she used the Winning Gundam, Fumina Hoshino used this Gunpla as her main mobile suit of choice, the Powered GM Cardigan. Based off the Powered GM From Mobile Suit Gundam 0083, it comes with an all new set of weapons like the Mega rifle, a beam machinegun and a pair of gatling guns on its forearms for long range devastation. It also has a pair of posable arms on its back used to hold its shields.

    This Build Custom set is based off the new weapon system of the Powered GM Cardigan. It comes with a variety of weapon attachements from the original kit and joints parts which you can use to customise your own heavy loadout mobile suit! *Note: This kit may not be compatible with certain Gunpla

    BB Senshi 395 LEGEND BB Nidaime Gundam Daishogun

    Nidaime Gundam Daishogun

    The son of the Shodai Daishogun, Nidaime Gundam Daishogun gets an updated BB Senshi model kit. This SD model comes with a huge variety of gimmicks such as its two other forms, the base form Raiou Gundam and the lightweight mode.

    By combining the Raiou Gundam with the Musha Phoenix it turns into the powerful Nidaime Daishogun with its signature Omega Cannons. It comes with a variety of eye parts and gimmicks for each form.

    Youkai Watch 008 Gabunyan


    The scary Gabunyan makes its appearance in the Youkai Watch line! It has parts that allows its mouth to slide in and out and a variety of eye sticks to replicate scenes from the anime. It has an all new posable mantle with a wide variety of motion. It can also transform into its alternate bat form!

    HG 1/144 Grimoire


    The mass produced mobile suit of the Pirate Corps from Gundam Reconguista in G makes its appearance. The Grimoire has a detachable central cockpit which you can use with the upcoming HG Montero kit. It comes with its Beam Machinegun, a knife and an effect part you can use with the Beam Machinegun.

    And that’s it for October! Looks like we will be seeing more model kits from these two new lines here onwards! As for this month? I’m really digging the Build Burning Gundam without question! It looks like its going to be an extremely posable kit so I’d like to test out how posable it really is!

    I also really want to get the Grimoire. It has a really military feel to it (even though its actually a Pirate mobile suit) that shouts serious business. Which model kits are you guys looking forward to this month? Share your thoughts below!
