MG Delta Plus news update

Bandai had updated the status for MG Delta Plus already! The kit is planned to be released on August with the price of 4500 yen. The kit also include extra Decal which is usually apply for Ver Ka MG kits. I guess Bandai did another solid release this year as Epyon will be released around June-July. Amiami has opened for preorder of the kit as well.

D-Arts Rockman X Full Armor

Shortly after Zero version X1 is announced now X with his armor upgrade in his first game is planned to be released this late September. I guess Bandai take their time in releasing figures for Rockman series i can see it will be a while that the later armor upgrade for X such as Fourth, Falcon or Shadow armor to be released. I predict Vile will follow soon after Full Armor X is released. I wonder if Bandai will sell the armor parts separately for fans who had the D-arts Rockman X already.

Jehuty got a plastic model?

After the Revoltech of Jehuty being released last month, from the Recent Hobby Japan it shows that Kotobukiya is going to release Jehuty as plastic model with the height of 18cm. While i am not familiar with the series yet i do like the design of this guy. There is no given release date yet but probably the kit will be released around end of this year. I guess it is time for me to play the game which i heard pretty awesome considering Hideo Kojima is the one who direct this game. For now i won't be having any expectation considering i am still not well versed with this series.

1/8 Kagami Sumika

Thanks to Good Smile Company the main heroine of Muvluv got a figurine as unit 00. Kagami Sumika who is Takeru's childhood friend become artificial human due to her tragic encounter with BETA and now ready to be the key of human's victory against BETA! This figurine is probably one in my wishlist if it was not discontinued already. While the sculpt is not that perfect compared to current production of the figures i could say it is good enough for any Muvluv fans. The figurine is posed with holding a heart which represent Sumika's pure love for Takeru. Other than Sumika, GSC also release figurine for Meiya and Kasumi in their alternative version as well.

D-Style Death Saurer

Out of many zoids design i didn't expect Death Saurer got the D-style treatment just after Blade Liger got one. Instead looking menacingly powerful, now Death Saurer looks pretty harmless and adorable. Death Saurer is one of the zoid that belong to Largest class of Zoids and one of the most destructive as well. It is pretty much Giant version of Geno Saurer since it is equipped with higly destructive Particle Cannon in its mouth. In Chaos Century the main villain General Proitzen piloted this zoid in the final battle. Probably only Ultra Phalanx or King Gojulas would be able to rival this zoid one on one.

I thought the next Zoids D-style release would be either Zaber Fangs or Geno Saurer though I can understand why Kotobukiya would release the D-Style version instead of HMM considering this kit would be too expensive to be built. The kit would be released on September and currently Amiami already accept preorder.

Plamo loot for this month

Here are the recent kits that i get from HLJ. Initially  i thought that i would stop buying kits for a while since i spent too much for Huckebein Boxer already but the deals of HLJ from the Kotobukiya sale is too hard to resist. As the result i got my self Linebarrel Kizaki ver and Wildraubtier. I also get MG Ingram 1 which will complete my Patlabor Collection. Unfortunately i won't be making any of these for a while except the Ingram since currently i am having winter in my place which is hard to get a chance for painting outside.

New SRW OG for PS3?

Got the scans from /m/ but so far i am not sure yet whether this scan is legit or not. However andriasang do confirm that there will be new OG series released for PS3 in near future. From the scans SRW D and MX will be joining in the game with some other minor original characters from other SRW appear as well. Kusuha and Ibis got their units from Alpha 2 and probably start their Alpha 2 plot as well. It is still unconfirmed whether the new OG title will be OG3 or the remake of previous OG series but probably it is the former one since i don't think a remake would be a good strategy for great series to land on PS3 for first time.

Some of new mech shown in the scans are:
-Flickerei Geist(looks like AlteisenxWeissritter offspring)
-Jinrai(4th DGG?)
-Exbein Boxer
-New Gespenst Variants for Octosquad

MG Delta Plus revealed!

As expected from Bandai, they finally confirm that Delta Pluswill get a MG treatment  in Shizuoka Hobby show this year which is great considering Gundam Unicorn is lacking in its Master Grade department. We can expect this kit to be released by the end of this year or early next year. This kit instantly included in my buy list along with MG Epyon which i am planning to get this year because i have been waiting for Bandai to release the MG. If Methuss and Zeta Gundam is the parent of ReZel then Delta Plus would be the child of Hyaku Shiki and Zeta Gundam. I already have some plans to work on this kit which should be pretty interesting.

SRW Z2 Get!

Finally i got this game on my hand. I bought the special edition of the game from amiami which cost 7000 yen with shipping. Surprisingly i find the price is much cheaper than Play-Asia which has this game around 90 USD. I decided to get the special edition one since it only differ 500 yen with the normal version. I won't be playing the game anytime soon since i need to finish SRW Z first before going on this one since my progress of the game is 60% already

you got the paper case for both Z2 version along with special booklet and code for downloading the Original mecha theme song. Hopefully the limited edition for SRW Z2 part 2 would be more flashy. If you want to get this game better buy it from Amiami since it is 5500 yen only and shipping probably cost 500-1000 yen.

1/100 F-18E Super Hornet

The Latest Muvluv kits that Kotobukiya will release! I guess Kotobukiya takes its time to milk down the franchise series as they slowly make different versions of the TSF. I recall that Super Hornet is the 2nd/3rd generation TSF that are developed by USA and used by its Marine units. This TSF is piloted by the protagonist in the Day After, Will who belong to US marines stationed in Japan. I used to mistake this guy with F-15C Eagle which bear close resemblance with the face but i realize the shoulder armor is different and for some reason Super Hornet somehow reminds me with Aestivalis mainly due to its large knee. I don't know if i am going to get this one though i will be getting Takemikazuchi for sure This kit will be released on July with the price 4800 yen

Rance 8/Quest News Update 2

For the Rance Quest update, so far the progress had made into music testing for the game. Rance Quest had the official homepage made in Alicesoft website and it has made into VN Magazine indicating that the game will be released soon. Another Heroine  seems to be joining Rance's journey this time who is Kopandon Dotto. Kopandon is one of the recurring character in Rance series if i recall her first appearance is in Rance 5D. She is a miko from Portugal who is another part of Rance's Harem. Kopandon is the richest girl(other than the princesses) that Rance had ever relationship with. Probably Kopandon try to win Rance's heart by giving him expensive gifts. In Sengoku Rance it is mentioned that She is the one who stole Maria's Tulip Cannon and sold it to Tanegashima house where it becomes the base of Tanegashima rifle.

Apparently the gameplay for Rance Quest is going to be 3D dungeon explorer unlike the previous Rance game where it is first person dungeon explorer. Personally i don't think it would be a good idea considering it will be compared to console games which has similar genre and probably better most of the time. However Alicesoft's game are usually great when it is compared with other Visual Novels.

I think there is a good chance for Kenshin to reappear in this game since one of the official arts for Rance Quest show that she is eating along with Rance. I wish Uruza would show up in this game as well because she is one of my favorite heroine in Sengoku Rance

Here is the homepage for Rance Quest though it appears to be unaccessible for Gaijins :(
