On the other hand, folks who are interested in Kyoshiro Mini Fig. Vol. 1 can now preorder this set from Happinet Online. There are a total of 4 plus 1 secret types, while each set contains 12 figures. Each figure is about 10cm tall. Release date is late December 2008, at 8,820 Yen per set.

Also, believe it or not, information from Hobby Search pointed out that LED system will be used for 1/100 00 Gundam's GN Drives' light-up mechanism! Looks like I was wrong in commenting that LED system won't be used for this model. ^^;

Light-up mechanism for real O_O

Code Geass fans beware: information on two future Robot Damashii action figures:

- Guren Flight Type - Late December release, 3,675 Yen (from Happinet Online)

Still not done yet with more and more Gundam updates: XD A significantly larger image of MG Infinite Justice from C3XHobby 2008:

The shield is somewhat smaller as compared to the 1/100 scale version?
