Can you believe 2015 is already halfway over? In that time, we’ve seen almost 60 new Gunpla models released—roughly ten every month! We’ve taken a look at the latest crop of models and posted them here for your viewing and purchasing pleasure. What do you think?
New releases for June 2015
Dijeh Reborn 100 (pictured above)
Amuro’s custom mobile suit from Zeta Gundam is special for two reasons. First, it’s recreated here in Bandai’s latest scale. Second, this is the first time it has ever been seen in Gunpla form, just in time for Zeta Gundam’s 30th anniversary!
This long awaited Master Grade is the best of both worlds: inspired by the most iconic Gundam Wing mobile suit there is, and improved with a flamboyant look worthy of our favorite Italian Gundam build fighter.

At long last, it’s here! This throwback to the Super Robot era is as colorful and over-the-top as you could ever ask for. LET’S TRY ON!
In the true spirit of Gundam Build Fighters, you can use these HGBF parts to retrofit other models for enhanced customization. I’m especially curious about the wings and claws.
A strange golden model with a shield that resembles a parasol, you’ll recognize this is from the quirky line of Reconguista in G suits even if you haven’t seen the show.

Another Gundam: The Origin model that brings a real classic to today’s quality standards. I love the variety of equipment it comes with, plus the understated violet armor.
With bright red parts and bulky limbs, this prototype Guncannon is a true throwback to the earliest suits there were, but its make is anything but. It was supposedly build with “a new injection molding technique that allows parts to be taken off the runner without tools.”
