Going Apes in This Lunatic Season

The Goat went by, and the Monkey arrived to bring a prosperous new year ahead!

Once again, it’s the dawn of a new lunar year, the annual festive season bringing along lots of reds decorations, Mandarin oranges, God of Prosperity, lion dances, fireworks, Ang Pows (Red Packets), visiting relatives and friends that ask you the same question every year… Oh well you know the rest… :P

Even the Petit’gguys are in the mood to start their own celebrations of showering in golds and plum flowers… XDc

Figures @ AFA15

Posters and promotional items aside, the booths within the halls at Anime Festival Asia 2015 are fully packed with various figures of genre and sizes.

Some cute, some sexy, some cool, some extraordinary. =w=

The Inner Mechanics of the Crimson Frame

The much-anticipated upcoming Real Grade, the ever elegant MBF-P02 Astray Red Frame, received a 3DCG PV introducing its fully pre-build and colour accurate inner frames in 1/144 scale, as well as boasting the overall aesthetic of the Gunpla itself.

By far the coolest PV of a Gunpla advert I’ve ever seen, aside from PG Unicorn Gundam’s.

The L.E.D. of the Unicorn

After half a year’s worth of patient waiting, the much-anticipated L.E.D. Unit finally made its landfall.

Originally supposed to be collected together with the Perfect Grade back in January, the L.E.D. Unit was a no-show due to cut-stock from the source, had no choice but to wait for the eventual restocking back in late May.

Packaged in a rather extravagant box, the exterior art featured an image of Unicorn Gundam’s Psycho Frame emitting its reddish pink particles in the dark, as well as a single image of the L.E.D. glowing.

The whole box itself covers in a type of chrome foil material, making the whole thing feels more reflective and kinda more… “expensive”. ^^;

So Petit, Yet Bearly a Gunpla

Originally released together with Mama’gguy in Beargguy F as a set, the Petit’gguy’s small frame emits an unbearable aura of cuteness, most certainly in bid on attracting (Or as many veteran Gunota put it, cashing-in…) more female Gunpla builders to the hobby.

Seen in the anime (Gundam Build Fighters Try)’s ED sequence, the four Petit’gguys in different colour variations finally made their Gunpla début, in separate releases no less!

The colour variations are obviously a representation of the main characters in the anime itself: Winning Yellow for Hoshino Fumina, Lightning Blue for Kousaka Yuuma, Burning Red for Kamiki Sekai and Future Pink for Kamiki Mirai.
