Repainted HCM-Pro RX-78-2 Again EDITED

EDITED: Edited information on SD Gundam Impact.

No Gunpla news this time ^^;

Two repainted (again and again ^^;) HCM-Pros have being announced:

HCM-Pro RX-78-2 Gundam Jaburo Defensive Battle - new markings resembling the battle scenes in the caves of Jaburo from the original anime. August release, 2,310 Yen (inclusive of tax).

I lost count of how many HCM-Pro RX-78-2 variations were released so far.
Reminder: The Jaburo Infiltration set is (of course) not included. ^^;

HCM-Pro E.F.G.F. 08 Team Vs. Zeon Set - Featuring Gundam RX-79[G], Zeon Magella Attack and E.F.G.F. Hovertank. Gundam RX-79[G] will have a new gray paint scheme. August release, 3,990 Yen (inclusive of tax).

The Magella Attack seems to be from the previously released HCM-Pro White Base Punitive Set back in 2006, maybe in a new paint scheme. The Hovertank is new though.

Also, a few new images of several previously announced merchandises:

Not enough with the countless series of Gundam gashapon and capsule toys, Bandai is launching yet another one in October, called SD Gundam Impact. All seven types, early October release, 100 Yen each.

EDITED: the 6thtype in the set is 00 Gundam, not Exia as posted before this. Thanks to Otaku-RP-Gamer for the reminder. ^^
Strike Freedom, Shin Musha, Zaku II, Sazabi, Nu, 00 Gundam and one secret type.
