Happy spooky season! This fall, I’ve observed fewer new releases than usual. That could be chalked up to the fact that there are no airing Gundam shows right now, but it’s more than that—Premium Bandai is taking off in a big way. Once nearly impossible to obtain in the United States, these limited edition kits now have their own English language online store.
Currently, I have no plans to begin tracking P-Bandai releases (and one big reason is that the tools I use to track new releases don’t include exclusives). But I would love for readers to comment or tag @Gunpla101 on Twitter to let me know if P-Bandai makes up a big part of your purchases these days, and if so, which kits you like best.
In the meantime, check out our list of standard new releases and pre-orders for the month:
New Releases for September 2020
MGEX Unicorn Gundam Ver.Ka (pictured at top)
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Master Grade line comes this truly stunning take on the Unicorn: a stylish Ver. Ka MGEX (short for Master Grade EXTREME). The main attraction is an already-assembled flexible skeleton studded with color-changing LED lights. Simply build the armor around this inner frame and get ready to display the most jaw-dropping Unicorn yet. Check out Hobbylink TV’s unboxing for more info—they don’t pay me, I just thought it was a cool video.
HGBD:R Re:Rising Gundam (pictured above)
Now you can build the showstopper final mecha from the Gundam Build Divers RE:Rise finale! This shimmery gold suit has a commanding aura and comes with special gold versions of the four suits it’s combined out of: the final versions of Hiroto, Kazami, Parvis, and May’s mecha.
This accessory set is designed to enhance Gundam Tertium, also from RE:Rise. The massive backpack resembles wings, while the two shields can be used individually or combined.
An expansion set proportioned for the Cross Silhouette series, this booster contributes additional functionality. With this add-on, your CS Gunpla can have different facial expressions, improved joint flexibility, and new accessories.
