In Action!! OffShoot Gloucester Cornelia Unit & Others

Although I haven't watch Code Geass, I do have several mecha which I like very much. Apart from Guren Type-02, Gloucester Cornelia Unit is also on my list. Apart from the groovy purple paint scheme, the huge lance looks really cool as well. Too bad Bandai doesn't seem to have any plan for it to be released as a Plamo yet.

Instead, hardcore fans of "the Witch of Britannia" can get the In Action!! OffShoot version of Gloucester Cornelia Unit from Hobby Search, available now at 2,500 Yen.

The cape is (unfortunately? ^^;) made up of plastic parts.

On the other hand, hot news for Macross Frontier fans, looks like 1/60 DX Chogokin VF-25 Alto's unit won't be alone when it's released, as his captain's unit will also be available at the same time. ^^ According to Toysdaily, the release date for both is November, and each is priced at 12,600 Yen.

I wonder if the Plamo version will get the same double release treatment as well?

Finally, clearer pictures of the recently mentioned COVER Kit HGUC Nu WF and Sangokuden Shun Shang Xiang resin kits:
