What with the release of Masoukishin F not far off, Bandai are stepping up with a new promo video. Despite the omnipresent boob jiggle with the various female cut-ins, the game’s animations are looking pretty damn good. Bar that, the boxset is also pimped a bit too but apart from the soundtracks there’s not much else to really recommend it. In any case, we’ll be picking this up come August 28th and you can pre-order it here.

Following on from our first batch of coverage for Wonder Festival, we’ve now done a piece on all the garage kits that caught our attention. Due to the sheer volume of stuff on display, this is very much a highlight reel of things we liked the look of. The garage kit side of things is also a lot more personable and much of the time we spent talking to people about their amazing creations. In short, Wonfes suitably rocks!

We managed to make it to the recent Wonder Festival over the weekend (despite the insane heat). Naturally we took lots of pictures and have done a chunk of coverage on the commercial side of things over at HobbyLink.tv. As we suspected, the just announced PlayStation Optimus Prime was present (looked good too). We’ll be following this up with a garage kit update soon.

Following on from the MegaDrive Megatron toy being made by Takara Tomy, they’ve now also announced an Optimus Prime toy based on the original PlayStation. Like the first toy, this too was designed by our good friend Junji Okubo. This new toy is likely being made to semi-coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the original PlayStation, which is this year. No word on pricing but it looks like it will be released next year. We’re also guessing this will be present at the upcoming Wonder Festival this Sunday.

Toys: Revoltech Overman King Gainer Re-Release

One of the first Revoltech toys we bought was the pretty damn great Overman King Gainer (we even have the Xan too). Well, for those that missed out, the figure is getting re-released in October. Now whilst King Gainer has graced many a game over the years, the big gaming deal about the design is that it was penned by Akira Yasuda (of Street Fighter fame, amongst many other things). It’s also a very unconventional mecha design and that’s one of the reasons we like it so much. Anyway, we can recommend this figure to pretty much everyone, so pick it up once it is re-released later this year.

So it looks like we’ll be getting a few Virtual On Force VR’s and a Virtual On themed area added to the recently released Phantasy Star Online 2. It’s worth clarifying that these are just costumes for player characters and aren’t actually full blown VRs in the traditional sense. The Virtual On lobby will be opened at the end of July until the middle of August. A promo video of the new costumes are shown below, they kick in around the 2:31 mark.

GELGOOG M

Following on the heels of our report detailing future DLC courtesy of the Famitsu Visual Complete Guide, new downloadable content has been released today via the Japanese Playstation Store for Gundam Side Stories. Although it appears to be another reskin, the MG-14 Fs Gelgoog M Commander from Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory is now available for 400 yen. In addition, VR Mission 105 is also available for free. Mission 105 is a ground based scenario taking place in the ruins of a war-ravaged city. If Bandai Namco continues this trend, we should see VR Missions 106-108 along with the Zudah, G-Line Armor, Gundam Alex, Kampfer, GM Custom and GM Cannon II in the near future.

In addition to the above mobile suits, VR Missions 105-108 are outlined in the Visual Complete Guide. No release date or pricing information is provided for the new content at this time.

Following on from the somewhat improved set of DLC for Gundam Side Stories, there’s now a new mobile suit out. Specifically that of the mighty RX-79[G]Ez-8 Gundam Ez8 from the 08th MS Team OVA. At 300 yen it’s a bit cheaper than usual but this is likely because it shares animation and weapons from the already existing Ground Gundam types in the game. That said, the model is all new and that is something at least.
