The 53rd Shizuoka Hobby Show presented some pretty huge GunPla announcements which got GunPla modelers all over the world all fired up. But which of these new announcements  had people excited the most?

From the survey, it seems that fans just can’t wait to get their hands on the new Re/100 GunPla kits which were just announced during the event. Bandai kicks off their new GunPla line with the Nightingale and Char Aznable’s monstrous mobile suit which has just proven that fans are more excited about it than rival Amuro’s powerful MG 1/100 Hi-Nu Gundam which placed second.

Even though images were leaked before the official announcements, people were still very shocked when it was announced as many have expected Amuro Ray’s RX-78-2 Gundam to be the first mobile suit to be featured in the new Re/100 line.

Gundam Build Fighters meanwhile showed that they are also very popular with two kits placing #3 and #4 respectively. The Wing Gundam Fenice Rinascita and the Gundam Exia Amazing may have been introduced in the series’ final episodes but they still made huge impacts to many fans.

So, which new GunPla kit are you most excited about?
