New Gundam Markers on Display at the 49th All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show

This is something I miss completely from the 49th All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show. ^^;

GSI Creos displayed new Gundam Marker colors at the recent the 49th All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show, called "G Lame Pearl Marker Set" (Gラメパールマーカーセット) for the BB Senshi Sangokuden series.

* NOTE: As indicated on the source page, the two images shown above are colors of the Gundam Marker with top coat applied - left - Gloss topcoat applied, right - semi-gloss topcoat applied.

Color swatch includes light blue, green, red, blue, orange and silver as you can see, all in pearl tone (?)

However, with that said, I can't really tell how pearl tone actually looks like actually. ^^; Pearl coating usually means bright glossy color with a bit of metallic feel to it for me, but I'm not sure if that's the real meaning of it.

Unlike previous Gundam Marker set, this time the six colors will be separated into two sets (previously released marker sets has six colors each): 1 & 2. Set 1 consists of light blue, green and red. Set 2 contains blue, orange and silver.

Both sets are available for pre-order on Hobby Link Japan and Hobby Search for 700 Yen per set.
