MG Sinanju - 7,350 Yen EDITED

EDITED: Added promo images of HGUC Geara Doga, BB Senshi 00 Gundam, and 1/35 Zangetsu (Code Geass R2). These updates are placed at the end of this posting.

Yes! I win! I guessed the price right! XD (Thanks to :) for the info in the shout-box ^^)

But all our wallets lose :(

MG Sinanju - Late December release, 7,350 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Goodness! 7,000 Yen. That's really one massive price. Does it hinder your wish to get this MG? Not for me, but some previous wish list items are definitely off now (as expected -_-|||).

From the text printed on this promo image, I only understand partially that MG Sinanju would have multi-layer armor design, and some sort of "mode change" (?). Sounds very exciting. ^^

But then again, what happens to those golden stripes on its body? Don't tell me they require sticker or decal?! o_0

MG Shin Matsunaga's Customized High Mobility Type Zaku II Ver. 2.0 - November release, 4,725 Yen (inclusive of tax).

In terms of the model, maybe we can call this new Zaku Ver. 2.0 variation as the intermediate version between the Black Tri Star Ver. and the recent Johnny Ridden's version? It's less armored but has bigger inner frame for the legs. A new Giant Bazooka variation included? or is it the same as the Black Tri Star Ver.

Plus, that light blue marking on the left shoulder armor is going to be quite a challenge for your clear sticker/decal applying skill. ^^

On the other hand, a view of MG Infinite Justice's full equipment:

Yup. Confirmed. No stand.

*sigh* 5,250 Yen *sigh*

1/100 O Riser - December release, 1,680 Yen (inclusive of tax).

So this is O Riser ^^;

1/100 O Riser & 00 Gundam Special Set - December release, 5,250 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Package include 1/100 00 Gundam, O Riser and an Action Display Base with the Celestial Being's crest as the base. We have a glimpse on how the two 'gattai' as well. Not much can be seen from this silhouette, but I hope the most prominent feature of having those two additional 'spikes' will not be burdening 00's Twin Drives.

On the other hand, that new Action Display base seems cool. Bandai might be experimenting through this special set on the market's acceptance towards these special Action Base. Maybe we'll see more coming up in the future.

Forget that ^^;

Action Display Base 1 Celestial Being Ver. - December release, 735 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Then again, isn't Bandai worries about the single release of 1/100 00 (not even available yet) with this DX package?

1/144 Selavee - November release, 1,680 Yen (inclusive of tax).
1/144 Ahead - November release, 1,260 Yen (inclusive of tax).
1/144 Arios - November release, 1,575 Yen (inclusive of tax).

HCM-Pro G-Box 00 Gundam & O Riser - December 2008 release, price TBA.

The color of O Riser is revealed. HCM-Pro 00's design seems a bit different from its previous single release.

HCM-Pro Arios Gundam - January 2009 release, price TBA.

Full length of the MA mode can be extended with a mysterious part included. o_O

BB Senshi Sangokuden Emperor Ryuubi - December release, 2,100 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Super-duper details and plenty of engravings all over this model, and look at the swords! O_O Wow. And as usual, the new Dragon armors can be worn by other Sangokuden models as well.

Giroro Musha Robo - November release, 840 Yen (inclusive of tax).
Dororo Musha Robo - December release, 840 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Information from Happinet Online.

Thanks for reading. So sorry for slowing your Internet connection by so many images as well ^^;

EDITED: HGUC Geara Doga - November release, 1,890 Yen (inclusive of tax).

It certainly is a very solid Zeon unit. I suspect Rezin Schnyder's blue version is coming real soon now? ^^

BB Senshi 00 Gundam - October 27th release, 630 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Image from Toysdaily.

Looks much bigger than Exia because of the Twin GN Drives, even though both of them are of the same price. I'm quite interested in this (not-so) little fella actually. But I should probably wait a little longer to see if an SD O Riser is coming ^^;

B Club's 1/35 Garage Kit Zangetsu - Late November release, 26,040 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Image from Toysdaily.

Quite a pity that this mecha doesn't get the regular release as Lancelot or Guren Type-02. Being a garage kit, touch up work won't be so easy, and painting is mandatory as well. The price is another huge issue. 26,040 Yen = about US$246 = about RM846 (as of October 2nd), and that's about four MG Sinanju in there ^^;

With the end of Code Geass R2, I wonder if we'll be seeing any new regular release of the 1/35 Mechanic Collection series in the future at all.
