Although the anime is over already, Gundam Double O's merchandises are not stopping/slowing down though. ^^; Apart from the many Gunplas, folks who like gashapons and capsule toys now have two sets to consider in August:

H.G.C.O.R.E. Vol. 5 - All Gundams in Trans-Am mode, including Lockon's Dynames which never got to activate it in the anime. Each of them also comes in a different 'clear red' version. They are not exactly newly produced figures, but repainted ones (in Trans Am color) from the previous volumes of
H.G.C.O.R.E. Check out the various series on Gundam Double O's official page.

Also in is Ali Al Sanchez's Customized Enact (in red paint scheme this time maybe?).

200 Yen for each figure. There are 11 different types in total.
