This is my last monthly shopping guide before going on maternity leave! Becoming a large mobile suit for a tiny, angsty pilot is probably the most Gundam thing I’ve ever done in my life. Let’s hope she’s not a protagonist!
As I wait for her impending arrival, I might do one more build before I begin spending 99% of my time taking care of the new human. If I do, there are a lot of new models to choose from! Here are the ones we got in August and can look forward to for September:
New Releases for August 2019
Every few months we get a high-profile classic converted into a Real Grade and it sells out quickly—I predict this is going to be one of those. With a sophisticated inner frame and the Nu’s trademark accessories, this Char’s Counterattack suit has never been so detailed or poseable.
Until now, you had to travel to Gundam Base Tokyo in Odaiba to get your hands on this gold-plated former exclusive. Now, it’s an equally-gorgeous global release! This armor doesn’t just shimmer; it’s practically mirror-coated for an eye-catching disco ball of a Gunpla.
Like the white version that came out in May, this expansion set allows you to customize your SD Cross Silhouette kits even further. Combine it with any Cross Silhouette (or most recent SD kits) to further customize the proportions of your tiniest mobile suit kits.

Love for the Black Tri-Stars will never die. Remember the Petit Beargguy based on them? Now, this glossy black Haro pays tribute with a custom color scheme and markings. It’s a simple concept, yet an instant classic all the same.
