HG 1/144 00 Gundam - Another Limitation & Others

When 00 Gundam, its GN Sword II particularly, was revealed to have the ability to be combined via the handle yesterday afternoon for its BB Senshi ver., the HCM-Pro version shows the ability to do so as well, but as the title of this posting implies, such feature is not possible for the HG release.

The BB Senshi ver. coming in late October at 630 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Review of the just released HCM-Pro ver. by Hima-Toy Review Blog.

Another review by Moeyo.

Two reviews on the HG 1/144 version by Hima-Toy Review Blog and Toysdaily did not reveal such ability.

Looks like the two GN Sword IIs are jointed via an extra part. I wonder if the 1/100 scale can have the same ability, but without the need of an extra part that is.

Also, more images of Robot Damashii Arios Gundam:

October release, 2,625 Yen. Images are from Amiami.

More images of the huge Robot Damashii Gawain coming this December, from Amiami:

The display stand is included.

Comes with a figure of Zero in the cockpit. Not sure if you can take him out of there or not.

Comparison with Lancelot of the same series (from In Action!! OffShoot actually) truly shows Gawain's massive size.

Late December release, 7,140 Yen (inclusive of tax). Images are from Amiami.

On the other hand, Tamashii Web has announced the change in the release date and price for In Action!! OffShoot Guren Flight Type. Previously, it's scheduled for late December release, priced at 2,500 Yen. Now it has being changed to January 2009 release, 3,000 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Finally, more images of DX Chogokin VF-25F Alto's unit from Tamashii Web:

I sure hope Bandai does something about the very obvious screws on the upper arm and elbow before its release ^^;

Still too early to say about the final quality from this very early prototype eh?

Both VF-25F Alto's Unit and VF-25S Ozma Lee's Unit will be available in December. 12,600 Yen each (inclusive of tax). Images from Tamashii Web.
