Let me tell you about the most surprising Gunpla 101 event that happened to me in October: I found out that my email account hasn’t been forwarding since April! Anyone who wrote to [email protected] since then was not hearing from me—and I wasn’t seeing their messages! It took two days to respond to over 100 of your emails, so sorry about that!
While sifting through those lost emails I found a lot of beautiful submissions. I found out that Gunpla 101 supporter Manpig started his own figure blog (if you’ve started one, let me know so I can link yours, too)! I heard about #Gundamber, a month-long building challenge.
The email situation is fixed so feel free to write to Gunpla 101 with your questions and comments. Until then, check out this month’s brand new Gunpla!
New Releases for October 2017
HGBF Reversible Gundam (pictured at top)
Based off the Reborns Gundam from Gundam 00, this Gundam Build Fighters Battlogue kit has a transformation gimmick its predecessor never imagined: the terrifying “Tank Mode.”
Designed for the GM/GM kits inspired by Gundam Build Fighters GM’s Counterattack, these add-on weapons will fit in the hand of any HGBF kit.
HG Gundam Local Type: North American Front (pictured above)
This black-and-orange kit is a variant unit from Gundam: The Origin that you’ve only seen if you are reading the (Japanese-language only) manga in Gundam Ace. As a North American fan, it’s awesome to see we have our very own Gundam type with a great color scheme!
