Toys: Fire Valkyrie with Sound Booster

Following on from our review of the 1/60 VF-19 Custom Fire Valkyrie, our good friends at HobbyLink Japan have also sent us the 1/60 Sound Booster for VF-19 Custom Fire Valkyrie from Macross 7. It’s important to clarify that the Sound Booster doesn’t come with the Fire Valkyrie, that has to be purchased separately. In addition, we’ve also included some game and animation footage at the end of the review.

News: Gunhound EX Release Delayed

It seems that, due to a pretty serious bug found late on in development, Gunhound EX will have its release date moved to January 31st next year. Whilst delays can be somewhat irritating, this is only a month longer and the more bugs they fix the better. Personally, we don’t mind waiting as we loved the original PC game and we don’t want either Dracue or G.Rev rushing a release. Don’t forget you can still preorder both the standard version and limited edition, the latter comes with a soundtrack and small artbook.

Toys: Tamashii Nations Akiba Showroom Report

Over at AmiAmi they have a lovely photo report of the Tamashii Nations Akiba Showroom. From the cool diorama above with the Hanged Man Super Robot Chogokin from Armored Core V, to awesome shots of the alternate coloured Billbine there’s lots of interesting stuff to see here. Talking of the former, there’s also a nice little piece about the designers feeding back on the new Hanged Man toy. Following on in the same vein, HobbyLink Japan are running a Bandai sale at present and there are some very good bargains to be had.

This is also the first of a two part review, as the next installment will also feature the Sound Booster add-on. In addition, we’ve also included some game and animation footage at the end of the review.

News: Battle Robot Damashii Announced

Over at Famitsu it’s been announced that Bandai Namco are going to release a new Artdink developed PSP mecha action game called Battle Robot Damashii. What’s interesting about this is that it features mecha exclusively from the Robot Damashii toyline and it totally encroaches on From Software’s Another Century Episode games. The fact it’s on PSP is also a pretty good thing, as Artdink’s tech and processes are pretty matured for the handheld. So in that regard we’re expecting something functionally pretty tight and polished. The game will be released in February of next year.

Toys: Gurren Lagann and Gunbuster Super Robot Chogokins Announced

Bandai have finally shown the fruits of their recent alliance with Gainax in the form of two new Super Robot Chogokin toys; that of the mighty Gurren Lagann and the majestic Gunbuster. Both figures will be released next year, with the former in January and the latter in February. In addition, their pricing at around 6,000 yen a piece is also pretty reasonable. What we’re most confused about though is why these designs in particular. There are already a lot of Gurren Lagann figures on the market and Bandai already did an amazing Soul of Chogokin Gunbuster, not to mention the Composite Ver Ka release too. Anyway, there will be a separate option parts set and both figures will have interchangeable parts.

News: Gunhound EX Announced

Whilst we meant to review the awesome PC version of Gunhound we never got around to it (it is awesome though). However, we now know that there will also be a PSP version released in December of this year called Gunhound EX. Sort of a remake(ish), it’s being co-developed with G.Rev this time. In addition, it will still feature music by the lovely Kinuyo Yamashita as well as new tracks from the pretty mad Hyakutaro Tsukumo. The game will also be released on PSN but a limited edition box set will also come packaged with cels and an all important soundtrack CD. We’ll be picking this up though and definitely reviewing it this time.

Kits: Metal Gear Rex Announced

Whilst it was recently revealed at this year’s Wonder Festival, Kotobukiya have officially announced the release of a truly gorgeous 1/100 scale Metal Gear Rex kit in December of this year. This is not to be confused with the huge and hugely expensive threeA toy, as this kit is smaller and costs a lot less (as well as needing to be assembled and painted obviously). The sculpt also looks spot on and for the money this is something I’d rather have over the threeA toy, as the latter has no diecast to speak of (which at that price is fucking disgraceful). As always, you can pre-order the kit here for a very reasonable 6,240 yen.

Toys: VF-4 Pricing Revealed

Well, we now know how much the forthcoming 1/60 scale VF-4G Lightning III will cost. That of an eye watering 26,985 yen. In addition, this will only be available to purchase via Yamato’s online shop. Whilst the toy will be released sometime this December, orders will be opening up later this August. Despite the price tag, we will be getting this as we’ve always loved the VF-4 and this toy looks to have a really remarkable sculpt.

Update: Yamato are now taking orders here.

Toys: Riobot Gurren Lagann Released

Sentinel’s rather amazing looking Riobot Gurren Lagann is now finally out in the wild. Despite having all manner of lovely Gurren Lagann toys already, we’re seriously tempted to pick this one up (purely on the sculpt in fact). As figures go though, the articulation and gimmicks look superb on this too. As always, you can buy yours here.
