Gundam Big Expo 2009

g049As part of Gundam 30th anniversary celebration, the 3 day Gundam Big Expo 2009 is currently being held this weekend August 21-23 at Tokyo Big Sight in Odaiba, Tokyo.

Digged around through my usual otaku blog sources for coverage on the Gundam Big Expo. Being the big gundam whore that I am, you can imagine how excited I got with all the neat gunpla that was shown.

However, this sexy beast of a plastic got me hella ecstatic like you wouldn’t believe, the 1/35 scale Gundam Fix Figuration RX-78-2 Ver.Ka. It was the main talk of the event amongst the attendees. It’s going to be 500mm (50cm tall)–that’s almost 2 FEET TALL. It will come with a display base with lighting gimmick and metal plate with a unique serial number. No price as of yet but I imagine it’ll cost an arm and a leg and a few organs (I’m thinking a few hundreds here and there.). Release date is March 2010. Some nice close-up shots at Akiba Hobby.

I’m not one to dish out that much money for something like this, but that’s one sexy piece of plastic that’s tempting me to save up and buy it. Other than that, the other thing that caught my eye was the Perfect Grade 00-Raiser (more PG 00-Raiser pics here). Oh Gundam, look what you do to me!

Hobby Japan – New Upcoming Gundam 00 Merchandise

hobbyjapan_may20092YESSS. Just what I’ve been waiting for; Bandai will be releasing  Graha–Bushido’s MS, Masurao fffff. Also, 0-Gundam do want.

Both Robot Damashii, 0-Gundam scheduled to be released late May at 2,625yen and Masurau will be coming out this July at 3,150yen.

I don’t know, but I think I’d rather prefer a 1/144 scaled kit of Masurau instead of the Damashii…

Pilot for GN-Archer confirmed & Gadessa GNZ-003

So most of us assumed that Anew Returner would be the pilot for the GN-Archer, but I was leaning more on Soma/Marie (WHO DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING, EH. I mean, it’d only make sense that she’d be Allelujah’s support–I wonder if their “DOCKING” sequence will be as fabulous as Setsuna and Saji’s, orz. SUPER AWESOME GATTAI DESU!). With the release of the GN-Archer kit, the speculation is out of the way.

Info on the GN Archer:
Arios Gundam’s support machine. Built the L3 factory. Originally designed as a 3rd generation Gundam, the idea was abandoned before it was completed, and it was made into a support machine instead, and given a huge GN Condenser. When combined, it feeds off energy from Arios. For the concept of the MS, it is an improved model of Kyrios’s tail booster. This suit can combine with Arios for more weapons, and when a pilot is in it, can transform into a MS to operate independently. Below the container, there is a space to mount guns.

As for weapons;

GN Beam Rifle
GN Archer is equipped with 2 of them. Compared to those used by Gundams, the barrel of the rifles are wider, so they have wider range. Instead of attacking the enemy, the main purpose of the rifles is to protect friend units (like shooting to create a gap between the enemy and friendly unit)

1231383388476-2GN Vulcan
Equipped on the front of the plane part, used in missiles intercepting. Low power but high firing rate. In MS battle, used to limit the enemy’s movement.

GN Missiles
Target seeking missiles, there’s 8 hatches in total, and 16 doors (not really sure how to translate into the exact terms). When the GN Missiles hit their targets, they inject GN particles to destroy the enemy within.

GN Beam Saber
Same weapon used by other Gundams. GN Archer has 2 of them, used in MS mode


EDIT; Should have posted about Gadessa too, but my mind just wandered off. Anyway, GADESSA MODEL KIT GET. Here’s a nice review of both GN-Archer and Gadessa model kits. Goddamn, Gadessa is such a sexy MS. D:

epic Exia cosplay, taken at AFA2008, this is by far the most epic Exia cosplay ever. The detail on it is simply amazing. I wish I had the patience or talent to make something like this and just have it on display in my room. OH GUNDAM-KUUUNNN~ (T A T);;

Fortunately, Clive (the Exia cosplayer) has tutorials on how it was made: head tutorial & body tutorial


Now that I’m on the subject of Gundams, I’m going to try my hand on something like this! Tho, I think I’m going to buy another 1/100 Exia kit for that because lol, I wouldn’t want to screw up the one I already own.
