Have you been enjoying Gundam Breaker Battlogue? It may be a short series with each episode lasting around eight minutes, but it’s still a new Gundam show so I’m happy. The show has launched a bunch of Gunpla which were exclusive to Target stores in the United States in October, but you won’t see them in the guide this month because I’m following Bandai Hobby’s global release schedule. Instead, I’ll share these from November 2021 to January 2022, when they’ll be available worldwide. I admit I’ve already gotten my hands on the aggressively American Gundam Breaker Entry Grade RX-78 Gundam 1, though I had to check several Target stores to find it!
Last month I mentioned I wrote an article for Anime News Network about the new “Cucuruz Doan’s Island” movie coming out, and I thought Gunpla 101 readers would be interested in checking it out. So here it is: Yoshiyuki Tomino Doesn’t Want You To Read This Article. What do you think of the title?
Read on for this month’s new releases and preorders:
Gunpla New Releases for October 2021
HG Gundam Gremory (pictured at top)
This scythe-wielding suit comes from the side-story manga Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Gekko. This suit emphasizes its defensive capabilities, with its head concealed by an armored movable hood. Gundam Deathscythe fans should love it.
Based on the legendary phantom thief Arsene Lupin, this Gunpla is wearing a top hat! (I almost said it’s the first to do this, but that would be Papa Guy.) Its cape monocle add further individuality and make it so you’d never confuse it for a straight Gundam X build!
Also from the SD Gundam World Heroes TV show comes this model with some seriously heavy artillery. In-universe, this kit is an enforcer of sorts and it comes with handcuffs, a baton, and what appears to be a badge on its helmet.
