All picture were taken at the 49th Japan Mokei Hobby Show held at Makuhari Messa from October 8 to 11. It is Japan’s largest model kit show with all of the major company of the model kit business repersented.
We wil start with the Bandai booth. As expected the main attraction was Gundam in this years’ case the OVA version of Unicorn Gundam as well as the Perfect Grade Double OORizer were what most people there were here to see.
The first fully new Perfect Grade Gundam model kit produced in over 5 years the Double OOriser promises to be the most complex and highly detailed Perfect Grade ever produced to this point. For those interested according to the Bandai the Perfect Grade Double OOriser model kit will have over 1000 parts in 63 sheets of parts.
The model kit version of the VF-25 Lucifer used in Macross Frontier was also on display in the Frontier section of the Bandai space.
Wave also had a few noteworthy items such as their 1/100 scale Destroid Monster model that is scheduled fo next year. The Macross part of their Beach Queens PVC figures were announced but to the disapointmenmt of some fans no Misa figure was there to be seen. The characters on display were Minmay from the original Macross as well as Mylene from Macross 7.
More pictures will be posted soon.
Yamato shows off their painted Do You Remember Love Macross at the Macross Crossover Live concert. It’s shaping up quite well and is set for 2010 release. Start saving those pennies.
