Mecha Fridays: TAMASHII Nations new Gundams and what we expect from P-Bandai’s 10th Year Anniversary

It’s a Gundam! A GUNDAM!

TAMASHII Nations has long prided itself as being “Japan’s Top Collectible” with its high quality products that include models and figures with great articulation hailing from various Anime, Manga, Cinema and Video Game franchises.

Just weeks back, TAMASHII Nations has unveiled a new addition to their toy line aimed at a global audience and centered on the highly celebrated Gundam franchise dubbed as the Gundam Universe Figure Line. Standing at 6 inches, the new line stands taller than your standard High Grade Gundam kits, and almost as tall as the Marvel Legends line. Just like many other TAMASHII Nations products, the new Gundam Universe Figure lineup still employs the level of craftsmanship evident to its level of detail, articulation and even attention to color.

The Gundam Universe Line will initially include mobile suit models from the Universal Century, After Colony and Post Calamity War timelines with kits from series’ Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans and Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. The kits will have a starting price of only USD 24.99 (~PHP 1,300), and each of them will come with standard armaments and attachments such as the Beam Rifle and the Beam Sabres, no Full Armor Unicorn though, but at USD 24.99 it’s pretty much worth.

Talking about more Gundam next month will be the 10th anniversary of the P-Bandai or the Premium Bandai which, over the years, has been met with both glee and controversy due to Bandai’s sometimes erratic release strategy. Still the P-Bandai line has lasted 10 years, 10! and it seems that Bandai might be cooking something up to celebrate this achievement. While there are no rumors just yet, we might be looking at a whole new kit slated for release under P-Bandai next month, most likely under Gundam 00 as the series has an ongoing 10th year anniversary celebration.

That or maybe another X-year anniversary version of the RX-78-2 Gundam because who doesn’t want that?
