Updates on Throne Eins, Throne Zwei and Others UPDATED

UPDATED - Added new images of SHCM-Pro Char's Zaku II, Gouf Custom, and Tieren.

First of all, Happy Chinese New Year everyone! :D Right now I'm enjoying some time off from attending to visiting relatives and friends with the latest news on upcoming Gundam merchandises, ^^ and of course, good things must share-share XD

HG 1/144 Gundam Throne Eins - The content and construction manual of Throne Eins is already up on Hobby Search. ^^ It's definitely the most complicated HG Double O Gunpla so far.

There are a pair of beam saber-like parts on Throne Eins's shoulder, but they are not in his armament list. I wonder what they are for...

EDITED: Thanks to Anon for the reminder - the beam saber IS included, but no beam part is given for this kit. Looks like Throne Eins will have to borrow it from Tieria's Virtue if he wants to pose with his beam saber ^^;

HG 1/144 Gundam Throne Zwei

That huge sword reminds me of Strike Noir ^^

HG 1/144 GN Arms + Exia

What I don't like about this kit is the the hollow parts on its both sides. They make the whole model seems a bit fake ^^;

HG 1/144 GN Arms + Exia, SD Destiny vs Strike Freedom
This OverFlag comes with two type of huge cannons - Graham Arce's customized and the new type developed for the OverFlag team, which will cost you an extra 200 Yen.

The SD Destiny vs Strike Freedom comes with a slide of clear sticker for both models. This has become quite a hot item on my to-buy-list, since I don't have both SDs, and I have always been salivating over SD Destiny's beam wings, ^^ also, the clear sticker can be used on my MG Strike Freedom and Destiny as well. Nice~ ^o^

On the other hand, I'm hearing some grumbling from those who just bought the separate releases of these two SDs already ^^;

HG 1/144 Trojan Noiret's Customized Astray Green Frame and HG 1/144 Leons Graves's Customized Civilian Astray DSSD Custom - Bandai put in some effort to make the SEED Frame Astray to be more than just merely recolored releases (finally ^^;): Astray Green Frame will come with a new rifle which can transform into a double beam lancer, while Civilian Astray DSSD Custom will have a new head. Interested?


HGUC Nu Gundam - The whole helmet is molded as a single part! Super user-friendly for those with airbrush. I'm sure Bandai is going to extend this technological advancement to their other lines of models as well.
