1/72 Transformable VF-25 Alto's Unit Now Available

It's out now on Hobby Search!

The runner that contains parts for the head (second from left) hints possible release of the other units in the future.

Two identical slides of decal and clear sticker provided.

I looked through the manual just now, and the assembly method is very complicated (for me). ^^ In contrast, the transformation seems really simple and straight-forward.

I'll wait for Ozma Lee's VF-25S. Hopefully the one to come out will include his Armored Pack as well. ^^

BB Senshi Sangokuden Chouryou Gelgoog has been released as well.

The huge Halberd is really cool, and so is his backpack unit - a bat that can transform into a shield ^^

On the other hand, Kotobukiya reveals a recolored 1/144 Linebarrel to be out by the end of this year. Called Linebarrel 'Overdrive' Emi Kizaki Ver., it's being listed as All Japan Game Show 2008 limited release, but Hobby Search has listed it as a pre-order item as well. The price is 4,000 Yen (without tax).

Also from Hobby Search, a new HMM 1/72 Saber Tiger to be available in Janaury 2009 - EZ-016 Saber Tiger Schwartz Ver., 6,800 Yen (without tax) - it's 1,000 Yen more expensive than the original Saber Tiger.

A Saber Tiger with Gatling! The weapon is cool, but black and pink isn't my preferred color scheme ^^;
