At their Tamashii Nations 2013 event in anime and figure mecca Akihabara, Bandai showcased their latest and most-talked-about articulated and high-end figures for fans to check out over the course of three days, from November 1 to 3.


Held in the second floor of Akihabara UDX, visitors were treated to an assortment of awesome figures from their Soul of Chogokin and Robot Spirits line. One of the highlights of course were the Gundam displays, which was certainly a huge part of the event.

This year’s theme was “Chogokin” or “Super Alloy” and the event showcased a rustic metal design which certainly goes well with all these mighty robots.
