Happy April! This guide is a day late on purpose—I hate side-eyeing every article on April 1 and wondering if it is some kind of joke.
One thing I wish I were joking about is that we are not having Tom Aznable review Gundam Build Real as a Deep Dive, though we really wanted to! Unfortunately, this live-action web series seems to be region-locked to Japan only. If that changes, however, we will definitely consider having some Gundam Build Real content on the site in the near future.
That said, ALL of March’s new releases came from a show that IS available outside of Japan, SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden. Read on to see what’s new:
Gunpla New Releases for March 2021
SD Ma Chao Gundam Barbatos (pictured at top)
It’s a gilded Barbatos! This iteration recreates the iconic sword-mace in shimmery clear gold.
The full-size Astray Red Frame already exudes samurai style; this version appears to be wearing head-to-toe Warring States Period armor.
Clear orange plastic makes a feather on the head of this bearded iteration of Dynames.
SD Zhang He Altron Gundam (pictured above)
See-through purple combines with the Altron’s standard hunter green for a striking, heavily-armored chibi version of the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing upgrade.
Speaking of Gundam Wing, here’s a stylized SD version of Zech’s suit, except with sheer purple elements to add mystery. Yes, the mask is removable.
Another take on the Tallgeese; with orange and bronze accents, this one has the same vibe as the original.
Sun Quan’s older brother in the show; this Astray has blue accents where the former has red. Calligraphy on the front (appears to say “Sun”) emphasizes the design’s Chinese influence.
This kit’s shoulder-mounted weapon is its most striking attribute. With opaque black weapons on a blue-and-gold body, it makes for an unusual overall look.
Haropla SD Sangoku Soketsuden Haro (pictured above)
Of course SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden has its own Haro! It features the dragon logo from the show and a deadly-looking sword. Watch out, he’s more dangerous than he looks!
