The 49th All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show

This year's All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show has been confirmed:

- October 8th & 9th (for industry members),
- 10th & 11th (for the public).

Venue: Makuhari Messe, Chiba, Hall 9.

Opening hours:
- 8th, 9th & 11th: 10AM - 4PM,
- 10th: 10AM - 5PM.

Entrance fee: 1,000 Yen. Free for students

The All Japan Plamodel Radicon Show is an important event to watch out for upcoming Gunpla and merchandises. Last year (2008), the highlight was MG Sinanju, when the completed model was showcased for the first time during the event. It was MG Unicorn Gundam in 2007 and MG Strike Freedom the year before that.

For this year's edition, we pretty much have an idea of what's coming: a colored version of PG 00 Raiser, the two versions of HGUC Unicorn Gundam, 1/100 Van Savior Gundam and 1/72 Transformable VF-27γ Lucifer Brera's Unit. All these are November release model kits.

Since HGUC Kshatriya and MG Blue Frame Second Revise are scheduled for October release, I believe we'll get to see plenty of their images before the event.

More items to be expected I suppose. The 1/100 Gunpla of Blitz Gundam's (?) variation for SEED VS Astray may be revealed.
