Gunpla Pre-orders and New Releases for January-February 2020

I can already tell that 2020 is gonna be a big year for Gundam. There’s a new Gundam attraction called Gundam Factory set to open in Yokohama this summer. It will feature shops, cafes, exhibits, and a life-sized walking Gundam statue. Also this summer, the Gundam Cafe in Akihabara will reopen at four times (!) its current size. 

Though we are on a mid-series break for Gundam Build Divers RE:RISE (don’t worry, Tom’s Deep Dive column will return when the series does), the Gunpla kits have kept coming out at a steady pace. Take a look at our January releases and February pre-orders below:

New Releases for January 2020

HGBD:R Jupitive Gundam 

I was wondering what this was because at first, it went online under the name “Hero Machine New Form” to avoid spoiling the show. Now we know that it’s the super-beefy fifth armor set for Hiroto’s intergalactically interchangeable Core Gundam, designed for space combat.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAH (deep breath) ok, i’m ok now

HGBD:R Seltsam Arms  (pictured above)

A different color version of the RE:RISE baddie Gundam Seltsam’s asymmetrical arms. Add them to your Seltsam, or make ANY HGBD kit twice as freaky by sticking these babies on instead of its usual arms. Competitive Gunpla builds are gonna be giving me nightmares soon. 

HGBD:R Mobile Doll May  (pictured at top)

Another kit that had its name hidden until it came out in January! Now that you’ve seen May’s mobile doll form in the anime, you can build this cute, poseable kit yourself.

SD Gundam Cross Silhouette MS-06S ZAKU II 

Char’s Custom Zaku gets the Cross Silhouette treatment with this salmon-colored armor that can be arranged on the standard SD or more dynamic CS inner frame. 

SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Frame [Red]

This red inner frame is designed to coordinate when peeping out from the aforementioned kit. 

SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Frame [Green]

… And this green inner frame is likewise made to match the standard Zaku-green.  

SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Booster [Red] 

Extra parts to match your red inner frame… 

SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Booster [Green] 

… And the same for the green one. Get the picture?

  • I use to get the Gundam girl kits because they were characters I liked. Now I get them for how well build they are made. So getting May.
    The Arms are a good idea. I’d like to see kits of just arms, legs, or heads to use for kitbashing.
