I love Gunpla. I also love cute things. And for some time now, it seems that Bandai has decided to take advantage of both in a grab for all of my money.
Every month, it seems, we get an adorable new Petitgguy or Beargguy—or both! This February is no different, offering some of the sweetest little bears I’ve seen yet. Take a look at this month’s latest Gunpla, which somehow range from cute to downright fierce.
New Releases for February 2017
HG Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex (pictured at top)
The latest in the Barbatos line, and this one has a tail! Combined with those bright yellow claws, this is the most animalistic, feral take on the Iron-Blooded Orphans suit yet.
Just like her higher-up, Vidar, Julia has named a mobile suit after herself. It’s a boring trend but a fascinating suit, with five star-like points that make its intent for space use abundantly clear.
The EIGHTH set of options for Iron-Blooded Orphans kits. Nobody is going to be hurting for ways to customize their Barbados.
And here’s the 1/100 Lupus Rex. Once again, these no-grade 1/100 models are somewhere between an RG and an MG in terms of difficulty. The enhanced detail is worth it.
HGBF Papagguy (pictured above)
He’s got a top hat, mustache, and cane, just like Mr. Peanut! It doesn’t get much cuter than this. The perfect father figure for Petitgguy.
I already have the extremely similar Cha Cha Brown Petitgguy, but this one does come with a cute accessory and also a warmer, pinkish-brown coloring, so hmm…
THIS one is in my absolute favorite color, so I’ll be adding him to my Bearggarmy for sure! As long as there are suckers like me, Bandai will absolutely keep churning these out.
MG Gundam Seed Dramatic Combination (pictured above)
Personally I think it’s kind of eerie to have Kira’s disembodied bust staring at me from the base of a 1/100 MG Freedom Gundam, but to each their own!
