Dengeki Japan 15th Anniversary Exhibition

Dengeki Hobby Japan is celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year, and the magazine company is holding an exhibition in Chiba, Japan to commemorate this business milestone. Some new Gunplas were being announced as well.

Is that the magazine covers for all the Dengeki Hobby published all these 15 years? Wow!

As you know, Dengeki Hobby promotes heavily on new Gundam side stories, and their effort helped to push more MSs into mainstream Gundam product line. Thanks to their effort, more fans are familiar with Advanced of Zeta now, as well as SEED Astray (quite a few series) and the latest Gundam Double O side stories. We will take a look at some of the modified Gunplas from these series exhibited during that event.

1/144 Hazel Custom that comes with support units Hrududu and Primrose, only available during the exhibition. No chance for Malaysians like me ToT

RX-121 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel] modified from PG Gundam Mk.II!

On the left is the 1/100 scale Gundam Astraea, as seen on the cover of Dengeki Hobby January issue. On the right is the hot 1/144 version conversion kit that comes along in this month's issue.
