Courtesy of our good friends at HobbyLink Japan we’ve been sent the Super Robot Chogokin Mazinkaiser as seen in Mazinkaiser (though its origins predate that by quite a bit). In addition, we’ve also included some game and anime footage of the mecha in action at the end of the review.

Toys: Isamu Dyson YF-29 DX Chogokin Transformation Video

In case you missed it, Bandai uploaded a helpful tutorial video (shown below) on how to handle and transform your Isamu Dyson YF-29 DX Chogokin from Macross 30 (which was also released today). Naturally, the transformation is pretty much identical to that of the already released YF-29 Durandal DX Chogokin but it’s nice to know that Bandai care. Whilst we passed on this in terms of the pre-order we may pick it up at some point, now that we’re located in Tokyo and amazing toy shops are in ample supply. Especially as this does in fact look like a rather lovely toy indeed.

Videos: Ex-S Gundam promo for Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

Following on from the reveal of the MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam from Gundam Sentinel as the special DLC for Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost on PS3, we now have a nice little promo video of the unit in action (shown below). This version also features the full G-Cruiser too, so it looks quite bulky. What is especially surprising is that the mobile suit’s pilot, that of Ryou Roots, has no character art or voice actor in game. Both of which look and sound a little odd compared to the other units. That aside the INCOM attacks, where beam rifle shots are reflected onto your opponent, look suitably pimptastic. Don’t forget you can still pre-order the game here.

News: HIGH-MACS Simulator Released

For those that have hankered for more in the way Gungriffon gaming, then look no further. We now have a very competent homemade PC version called the HIGH-MACS Simulator that’s very much in-line with the original Saturn games. Both the controls and handling are also refreshingly fluid too. What with the series’ creator passing away a few years ago it’s nice to see the fans keeping Gungriffon alive. We’ve also linked the simulator’s promo video below.

There is a nice little piece over at 4Gamer regarding the Extreme Gundam Leos Type that will be featured in the upcoming PS3 port of Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost. Covering its various phases, it is pretty clear that this is a potent unit and at only 2500 somewhat of a bargain too. In addition, it seems that the Extreme Gundam bosses from the end of the previous game will also be making an appearance (though sadly these won’t be playable). Bamco have also updated the game’s promo with an HD version, which we’ve linked below. Don’t forget you can still pre-order the game here.

Toys: Arcadia YF-19 Breakdown

Over at AmiAmi they have a stupidly lovely breakdown of the upcoming Arcadia 1/60 YF-19 toy set for release in April of next year. As always we’re taken aback by the quality of the both the detailing and sculpt of the new toy, especially as we already own the previous Yamato version. Whilst the price is pretty steep, it’s clear that there is a lot of new engineering on this new toy and as such we feel that the price hike is somewhat validated. Don’t forget that you can still pre-order the toy here.

As an aside, apologies for the lack of updates recently. We’ve relocated to Japan and the move has been rather intensive, as you’d expect really. Normal service and regular updates should be fine from here on in though.

Toys: Robot Damashii Kshatriya Revealed

We now have details on Bandai’s upcoming Robot Damashii NZ-666 Kshatriya as seen in the Gundam Unicorn OVA, it’s to be released next March and it will cost 13,440 yen. Interestingly, it appears that this will be a regular release as well and not a webshop exclusive. The toy itself is also rather large and appears to have some quite intricate engineering, which likely explains the higher price compared to other figures in this line. We have also been graced the seventh and final episode’s teaser trailer for the anime too, that will also be released next year. In any case we’ll definitely be picking this up in March and will likely review it too, if only to give our Robot Damashii Sinanju review some company.

Earlier this month, Namco Bandai had several location tests for the newest sequel of the Extreme Versus franchise, Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost. Several details were leaked prior to this during a recent preview of the game at a trade show, but we were still unsure of what to expect from the game. Thankfully, gamers bravely subverted location test security to secretly take videos of the first build of the game. In the video, you can see the Gundam AGE-1 go into it’s EX Overdrive mode to become the Spallow Wear, which looks somewhat similar to Spiegel Gundam in terms of moves so far. Check out the video below and see what you think about the game.

There’s a nice preview of Arcadia’s upcoming 1/60 scale YF-19 toy over at Moeyo (Warning: link also contains boobage). There’s a lot of nice sculpt and detailing work here, which makes the rather steep price tag somewhat more palatable. Considering the release is in April of next year, we’re saving for this little beauty already. You can pre-order the toy here.
