RX-0 UNICORN GUNDAM Real Grade & Mega Size Model Thorough Kit Review
“RX-0 UNICORN GUNDAM,” the protagonist mobile suit from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, is the 25th product release in the Real Grade series, which has already become a high-level figure series representative of Gunpla, and will be a release in the Mega Size Model series, the largest Gunpla in history, which has not had a release in a while.
In this opening feature, we will give readers a super thorough review of these two UNICORN GUNDAMs through a perspective that is unique to Hobby Japan!! The RG UNICORN GUNDAM will be a large spread with detailed commentary in a sample kit review by Keisuke Watanabe. The customary How to article “You Can Do It Too!! A Simple Method to Making Gunpla” geared towards beginners with the theme “A Simple Method to Make Use of Mold Coloring” will focus on explaining how to stick realistic decals on your Gunpla. Additionally, the Mega Size Model UNICORN GUNDAM will be an intense build by GAA as he makes the best use of its 45cm size! We will definitely deliver a feature fully loaded with the charms of UNICORN GUNDAM!!
Gundam Build Fighters: GM’s Counterattack
“RGMGM-79 GM/GM”, a Gunpla that is used by “E”, a member of the Gunpla Mafia that appears in front of Sei and the others, was released in August as part of the HGBF series. While basing its design off of “RGM-79 GM”, it has become a stylish and extremely cool mobile suit that has overturned the image of GM being a mass-produced suit that takes the beaten role. Aside from a portion of it, the kit has for the most part been newly molded and has improved its customizable factor with three types of heads and each part of its entire body made with 3mm sockets while having a high actionality unlike that of GM’s.
Akira Sakai is in charge of the sample kit review. Although some of the interesting manufactured portions of this sample model were retained, the model was completed while making the best use of its customizable nature using HGBC GM GM Weapons, released at the same time as this kit, and the body, shoulder armors, and footgear from another set of this kit in the image of GM II (A.E.U.G. Colors).
It has been one year since Godzilla: Resurgence. The franchise’s first animated film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters (releasing on November 17th), is scheduled to begin and continue into the next year for a second and third release. Additionally, a sequel for the Hollywood movie GODZILLA is being prepared for a release in 2019, showing the increasing activity in the environment surrounding Godzilla. This brings us to the Godzilla feature as a HJ SPECIAL article. This article will introduce Godzilla models from the latest works, from the newest animated Godzilla to previous Godzilla works. Readers will enjoy the charms of Godzilla once more.
Beat Valkyrie Ixseal
The heroine Valkyrie Ixseal from Beat Valkyrie Ixseal, the latest game in AliceSoft’s super popular Beat PC game series, has quickly been made into a figure by AMAKUNI!
Her design, which has various components including her body suit texture, various mechanically molded parts, and a sensual bodyline that will arouse a fetish-like feeling, has been thoroughly recreated. AMAKUNI also promises that you can recreate her laughing scenes from the game with bonus parts.
The production of Valkyrie Kyriel, the game’s second heroine, is also underway with great reviews! Please pair her together with Ixseal and recreate the valiant figures of the two heroines!
