HCM-Pro 00 Gundam & New Unicorn Gundam EDITED

EDITED: More Gundam updates ^^

A few more updates after the intensive one this afternoon:

HCM-Pro 00 and Cherudim Gundam coming soon. 00 Gundam comes with all (?) his weapons. Actually I'm still trying to get used to the rifle/blade combo labeled as GN Sword II, they seem quite really small as compared to the one used by Exia. They looks more like the upgraded version of GN Blades instead. The shield looks weird too, more like two Exia's swords cut into half and stuck inside his shield in both ends XD. Cherudim Gundam (Dynames's successor) has some strange V-fin design ^^;

We'll need some time to get used to the design I suppose. Still more than two months till its official airing anyway.

HCM-Pro 00 Gundam's release date is October, price TBA. No information for Cherudim Gundam yet.

Not enough with the HCM-Pro release, here comes the MSIA version ^^
00 Gundam and Arios Gundam will be among the first releases this time. 11cm tall each, Fall release, price TBA.

On a separate note, scan from this month's Gundam Ace shows some surprising updates in Gundam Unicorn: a new Gundam Unicorn! And seems it'll be the enemy too. Not sure about its design at the moment, so far only its silhouette is showing. But its Psycho Frame radiates a different color than Unicorn's, and there's something strange about its V-fin as well (oops, I said the same thing about Cherudim too ^^;)

Then again, mark my words: I think we'll be hearing a repainted MG Unicorn sooner or later.

More powerful than the original?

Another new MS from Gundam Unicorn: AMS-129M ?ee Zulu - the front portion being cut off. ^^; Looks like it's a marine unit.

New Gundam merchandises: Fusion Works' Gundam STANDart 3. It's a gashapon set featuring MSs in standing position. This is the third in its series, and as with #1 and #2, there are four MSs included thsi time: Gundam Ver. Ka, Kampfer, Hygogg and one yet to be announced.

Each figure is about 8cm tall. Late September release, 693 Yen each.

For SRW fans, here's a huge news for you, literally: 1/144 scale Daizengar coming in December this year. The finished kit stands 38cm tall (taller than any PG model!), no information on its price yet. The prototype will be displayed during Wonder Festival Winter this year.

It's being a while since we last heard of any huge scale plamo, and this one's definitely awesome. If the model is that huge, how big can his Zankantou be I wonder?

The bad part... the price. That's definitely going to be a loud "Ouch!" ^^;

Also, some updates on Chogokin Daizengar - we get to see the horse form of Aussenseiter this time. If you don't know this already, it can actually do the near-impossible transformation into the humanoid form with the same name. I'm not going to buy this, but I'm absolutely trilled to see how the transformation is done ^^

Release date and price TBA.

New units from Code Geass R2:

Their equipments just get weirder by every mecha ^^;
