February is here and with it comes the Gundam Narrative US theatrical run! If I weren’t already excited, all the new Narrative version Gunpla would definitely get me there.
We’re starting the year on the lighter side, but we can’t get 99 new kits every year! 2019 marks 40 years since Mobile Suit Gundam first aired in 1979, so if you ask me, we’re just getting started. Check out the starting lineup:
New Releases for January 2019
MG Sinanju Stein (Narrative Ver.) (pictured at top)
I’m so used to seeing the Sinanju in red and gold that it’s jarring to see it in silver and white! The Sinanju is something of a fan favorite at Gunpla 101, making this brand new version a must-try.
Ninja girl Ayame joins Momo in her own cuddly Beargguy costume, this time in her signature purple. She can take the mask on or off.
HGUC R-Jarja (pictured above)
This striking red insectoid model is a prototype commander suit from Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. Can you tell it’s from the ‘80s?
The enhanced version of Ayame’s Zeromaru suit bears not a small likeness to the Full Armor Unicorn. Can also transform into the regular-sized “Real Mode.”
This kit is controlled by the admins of the Gundam Build Divers world and looks like a neon version of the classic RX-78-2 Gundam.
Haropla Mobile Haro (pictured above)
Well, we’ve had a nice run, humanity. With his own poseable arms and legs, Haro is unstoppable.
