Gundam Heroine History Resting Fighters & Others EDITED

EDITED: Added extra information and images of the 1/400 Gundam Collection Vol. 0 resin kit from B-Club.

Just reported about Gundam Heroine History SP yesterday, another lovely set from that series has been announced: Resting Fighters (戦士たちの休息), featuring the following characters:

Each figure is about 12cm tall. There are five characters in total, but each set will contain eight instead. Late November release, 5,880 Yen (with tax). Images and information from Amiami.

Another "sequel" in Gundam gashapon series is 1/300 S.O.G.F. (Strategy of Gundam Field) II (the first set was also reported yesterday), featuring five MSs from non-UC timelines:

It's great to see Serpent's merchandise re-appearing after don't-know-how-long. This time it comes with its huge bazooka, instead of the Double Gatling it's commonly seen with. Each figure is about 6cm tall. There are five characters in total, but each set will contain 12 instead. Mid November release, 5,040 Yen (with tax). Images and information from Amiami.

Amiami also listed two future garage kits from B-Club. All f us are quite well known of B-Club's "awesome" pricing, 5,000/6,000 Yen for a head and a few extra conversion parts for a Gunpla isn't anything surprising, but the second one below really goes over the line this time in my opinion:

1/144 c.o.v.e.r.-kit Gundam NT-1 - conversion kit for HGUC Gundam NT-1 - 12 new parts including the head, waist, thigh, ankle and several internal parts. Late September release, 7,140 Yen (with tax).

Image and information from Amiami.

Gundam Collection Vol. 0 1/400 Guncannon - yet to be assembled and unpainted. Details include the nozzle inside the feet. Late September release, 2,310 Yen (with tax).

2,200 Yen for a 1/400 Guncannon?! Wuhhuh! The assembled, painted Gundam Collection DX figure yesterday only cost 336 Yen each. Plus they come with a base too. ^^; B-Club really needs some sort of announcement to tell everyone how exactly do they price their merchandise.

Eh, anyone interested?

EDITED: Just when I thought that 1/400 Guncannon is the first of its kind...

Gundam Collection Vol. 0 1/400 Gundam - Late December 2007 release, 1,890 Yen (with tax).
Gundam Collection Vol. 0 1/400 Guntank - February 2008 release, 2,310 Yen (with tax).

Images from Amiami.

Apparently Gundam and Guntank of the same series were released long long time ago, "crazily" priced as well. Gundam is 1,800 Yen (the 1/144 HGUC version is 1,000 Yen), and Guntank is 2,200 Yen (800 Yen for the HGUC version).

Still, the same line from me: anyone interested? ^^;
