GFF Metal Composite Z Plus & 1/72 Transformable VF-25S

New images of G.F.F. Metal Composite #1006 Z Plus [Red], particularly its Type C1 [Hummingbird] mode and the size comparison to previous GFF Metal Composite release.

In comparison to Gundam RX-78-2 Ver. Ka, Z Plus is really huge! I almost mistook that Gundam to be in 1/144 scale

Images are from Amiami.

The same three images above are also for the limited Z Plus [Blue].

Somehow I have the feeling that S Gundam, or Ex-S Gundam will get its shot as the next G.F.F. Metal Composite release. The complicated transformation gimmick is already possible in the MG series years ago. All Bandai needs to do is to transfer the technology to the G.F.F. line.

Not to mention the designer is also Katoki-sensei.

If Bandai is positive in the market in accepting this near 20,000 Yen G.F.F. Metal Composite Z Plus (some would probably get two - both red and blue versions), I don't see why Bandai won't put S or Ex-S onto the list.

Both the red and blue version will be released in late February, 18,900 Yen each.

On a separate note (but still on transformable mecha ^^), a review on the recently released 1/72 Transformable VF-25S Ozma Lee's unit by Gamu-toys.

You can see many images featuring that huge skull marking on the back on this VF-25S in this posting because that's the feature I like the most. Of course that's not the only thing I like about this model, but most other details and gimmicks are the same as VF-25F Alto's unit, which had me marveled upon n times since its release. XD

All images from Gamu-toys.

Speaking of VF-25F Alto's unit, pre-order for 1/60 DX Chogokin Super Pack add-on will begin on the 25th of this month.
