Gunpla Pre-orders and New Releases for September-October 2019

This monthly shopping guide begins with a very special announcement as John and I welcome our tiny Gundam pilot to the world! Eva Artesia was born on September 4 and we could not be happier to meet her. She doesn’t have a favorite Gundam series yet, but it’s only a matter of time. 

We are already counting the days until she can build a Gunpla kit with us, and have already bought her a Petit Beargguy in Trans-Am Red. As we answered in a previous Ask Gunpla 101 advice column, we think around six years old is the right age for a kid’s first supervised build.

Of course, that’s years from now! Right now, we’re just trying to survive day by day and there’s not a lot of time for Gunpla even though I am fortunate enough to be on maternity leave. Instead, you can catch me doing a Turn A Gundam rewatch at 3 AM, 4 AM or whenever the baby decides it’s time to party. So without further ado, this month’s new Gunpla:

New Releases for September 2019

HGAC Gundam Sandrock & Mobile App Product Code Set (pictured at top)

This super-nostalgic kit is the first update we’ve gotten of Quatre’s desert defender since the original came out in the late ‘90s. Needless to say, it’s higher quality and a lot more detailed since that first one, not to mention much easier to build. 

MG Gunner Zaku Warrior (Lunamaria Hawke Custom)

I can’t believe Gundam SEED Destiny is 15 years old! To commemorate the anniversary, Lunamaria’s custom Zaku has been made into a Master Grade for the first time. The mix of standard Zaku pink with glossy crimson details makes for a good-looking kit.
