Gunpla Pre-orders and New Releases for March-April 2020

We know you don’t really care about what a Gunpla website has to say about the global pandemic. But we’d be remiss if we just brushed off a disaster that is affecting so many of our readers. Those of us who are cooped up indoors polishing off our Gunpla backlogs are the lucky ones. The workers who are packaging and mailing new Gunpla are not so fortunate, risking themselves to exposure with every delivery.

Some companies have put temporary policies in place. Hobby Search has paused all international delivery. Amazon is prioritizing essential goods over toys and games. As I post this month’s pre-orders and new releases, I hope you’ll consider using this post not as a shopping guide as usual, but as a reference for your future wishlist.

With that in mind, here’s what’s new. Stay indoors, wash your hands, and keep building!

New Releases for March 2020

HG Gundam Marchosias (pictured at top)

In the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans universe, Gundam Marchosias was thought to be lost forever. But this demonic suit made an unexpected appearance in the IBO cell phone game (Japan only, unfortunately), where its bombastic look has made it a fan favorite. 

HGPG Petitgguy Justigguy

The cutest little version of Kazami’s Gundam Justice Knight. Unlike a lot of Petitgguys, which are merely conceptual, we actually got to see Justigguy in action in Re:Rise! 

HGBD:R Mercone Weapons

Hiroto’s water-specific armor can attach to the Core Gundam or work as an aquatic support unit—you decide how to build it. It can also be mixed and matched with the already-released Earth, Venus, or Mars armor for a variety of color and style combinations. 

HG RX-78-02 Gundam (Gundam The Origin Ver.) (pictured above)

This Origin-specific version of the Grandaddy Gundam was made to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Gunpla hobby, which first kicked off in 1980! It’s an easily poseable, smoothly-jointed, and expertly-molded version of the model that started it all.
