MG Force Impulse Gundam & Shin Musha Gundam EDITED

EDITED: Added images of 1/100 Avalanche, news on new Super Robot Wars models and others

YES!!! ^^

My eyes almost popped out when I read about the news on Toysdaily. Yes folks, Force Impulse Gundam and Shin Musha Gundam are going to get their MG treatment in May and June respectively.

MG Force Impulse Gundam - May, 4,200 Yen
According to Gunota Headlines, MG Force Impulse Gundam will come with a promo video done by the staff members of SEED from Sunrise. Does that hint another anime series of SEED in the future?...

MG Shin Musha Gundam - June, 4,725 Yen
What did I tell you! Wuhhuh~ XD

Apart from these two giants, many Gundam Double O mecha are going to get their Gunpla release as well, including four grunt units and MSV Gundams coming in 1/100 scale!

1/100 Overflag - May, 2,310 Yen
HG 1/144 Ali Al Saachez's Customized Enact (release date and price N/A)
HG 1/144 GN-X (release date and price N/A)
1/100 Tieren Ground Type (release date and price N/A)

HCM-Pro Gundam Deathscythe - June, 2,940 Yen

For folks who are into the GFF line, Bandai has planned something huge (literally) for you as well ^^

I'm sure you know that Gundam Mk. III is coming in Late June, but what about Metal Composite Psycho Gundam Mk. II coming in July?

Other upcoming Gunplas as reported on Gunota Headlines include:
- HGUC Zaku FZ - May, 1,260 yen
- HG Sergei Smirnov's Customized Tieren Space Type - May, 1,575 Yen
- BB Senshi Sangokuden Kakouen Dalas - May, 630 Yen
- HCM-Pro Tieren Space Type Set - June, 3,360 Yen

Frankly, I got so excited after knowing that Shin Musha Gundam is going to be released as an MG, I was pretty much numb for 1/100 Overflag, Tieren and Avalanche. Oh how I love these few mecha as well! Plenty of hard choices to make for the next two months ^^;

On the other hand, folks who like MG Zaku II MG-06F and Mine Layer can check out their content and construction manuals on Hobby Search.

The Giant Bazooka for MG Black Tri-Star's Customized High Mobility Type Zaku II is included.

The big backpack is very big indeed ^^;

Kotobukiya's Super Robot Wars models are a lot fewer than Gunpla, but extremely exciting nonetheless:

Transformable 1/144 Altalion - June 4,410 Yen
Transformable 1/100 R-1 (summer release, price N/A)
Non-scale Grungust Type-0 (summer release, price N/A)

Gundam Double O variation volume 6 features GN-003/af-G02 Gundam Kyrios Gust:

Looks a bit like MSA-0011[Bst] S Gundam Booster Unit to me ^^;
