1/144 Linebarrel, DX Chogokin VF-25S & Others

Updates on non-Gundam merchandises this time:

(1) 1/144 Linebarrel - October release (this month), but exact release date is N/A. 3,990 Yen (inclusive of tax). 150mm tall.

Linebarrels of Iron kicked off last week, two days before Gundam 00 Season 2. Anyone watched the first episode already? I haven't watched it yet, but my friends urged me to check out the CG in that episode.

Hopefully I can watch it, along with Gundam 00 this coming weekend.

(2) 1/144 Rein Weissritter - November release, 5,040 Yen (inclusive of tax). 155mm tall.

Plenty of credits to Kotobukiya for tackling this very organic mecha from SRW. I especially like the "web" on the legs, and the tail of the rifle.

Seriously, Bandai should be able to produce even more delicate parts for their models *cough* MG Sinanju *cough* since they are more experienced than any other company in producing mecha-related models. The part separation and color distribution of this 1/144 Rein Weissritter would really put many recolored Gunplas from Bandai to shame.

(3) 1/144 Daizengar - December release, 31,290 Yen (inclusive of tax). 380mm tall.

Easily the most outstanding model this year. ^^

Being seeing that supporting stand for this monster since the first introduction. Not sure if the weight is going to be a problem for him to stand properly if the display stand is omitted.

But the awesome thing is, his massive Zankantou seems to be no-problemo for the arm to handle ^^

(4) DX Chogokin 1/60 VF-25F Alto's Unit - November release, 12,600 Yen (inclusive of tax).

(5) DX Chogokin 1/60 VF-25S Ozma Lee's Unit - November release, 12,600 Yen (inclusive of tax).

New pictures turn out to be just larger version of the ones posted long time ago actually, ^^; so you can say that there are plenty yet to be unveiled for these these two DX Chogokin Messiahs.
