Summer is going by too quickly! I feel like I just posted the July pre-orders. August brought us eight new releases, with four pre-orders for September. Check them out below.
New Releases for August 2015
The Meijin’s model from Gundam Build Fighters Try is red all over, which means it’d be a great base for your first matte topcoat attempt. This master grade kit shows its additional detail in the inclusion of seven different weapons.
RG MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame (pictured)
This might be the Gundam universe’s most popular mobile suit—we’ve seen how many new Astrays this year? Here’s a real grade to add to the lineup.
It’s a great year for Gunpla customizers, as this is our 10th pack of weapons designed to fit any 1/144 model. This kit includes the strike bazooka and Duel Gundam beam rifles.
HG Gundam G-Self (Perfect Pack Equipped) (pictured at top)
A fully-equipped new iteration of Gundam: Reconguista in G’s premier mobile suit. I love how this suit opts for a light turquoise as a change from the traditional Gundam royal blue.
It’s a good month for Gundam Seed fans! This iteration boasts an extended freedom of movement (pardon the pun) from earlier models of the same suit.
Suga from Gundam Build Fighters Try is a cool character, but he could use some help naming his suits a little better. This looks nothing like a leopard, Suga. (Clarification: as a reader pointed out, this is the spitting image of Gundam Leopard from Gundam X, which in my opinion, does not look anything like a leopard, either.)
Taking its inspiration from Samurai suit Gundam Musha, Lady Kawaguchi’s SD mobile suit is the coolest of cool. All those ridges would look great with some panel lining.
SD Legend BB Versal Knight Gundam (pictured)
Knight Gundam is one of the most enduring of the SD Gundam collection, making cameos in shows as recent as Gundam Build Fighters. This iteration has metallic detailing.
