All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2014: Bandai goes all out with the GunPla, officially announces new 1/60 PG Unicorn Gundam
The All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2014 has finally kicked off over at the Tokyo Big Sight in Odaiba, Tokyo and the biggest names in the hobby industry have gathered in one of Japan’s most important hobby conventions. One of those big names is Bandai which showcased its upcoming GunPla models.
One of the biggest announcements during the event is the unveiling of a new Perfect Grade GunPla because after Four whole years of waiting, Bandai will finally be releasing a new 1/60 scale Perfect Grade GunPla, and it’s none other than the Unicorn Gundam from Gundam UC. This 1/60 scale PlaMo will be released December 2014, four years after the release of the last Perfect Grade GunPla, which is the Strike Freedom from Gundam SEED Destiny. It boasts an awe-inspiring gimmick of a light-up psycho-frame using LED lights, this means, when in Destroy Mode, its entire body will be glowing.
Bandai also displayed their latest 1/144 Real Grade (RG) model, which is the Wing Gundam Zero EW from Gundam Wing Endless Waltz. Bandai is also hinting that might also be releasing RG versions of the other Operation Meteor mobile suits, and like their MG versions, they will also be sharing the same inner frame.
With Gundam Build Fighters Try making its much-awaited premiere next month, Bandai also showcased the series with their latest 1/144 HGBF kits as well as their SD kits, and these include the mobile suits which were just announced to appear in the anime.
Another new series premiering this October is Gundam Reconguista in G or G-Reco for short and its 1/144 HG kits were also on display

Other upcoming GunPla from their other series such as HGUC and MG were also displayed. Bandai also announced the upcoming Gundam MK-III for their new Re/100 PlaMo line.
But Bandai ain’t just about GunPla as they displayed their SH FiguArts lines, including the very first member of their Love Live! SH FiguArts line, Honoka. Also displayed are some figures from their Chogokin series, SH MonsterArts, Candy Toys, Armor Girls Project, and many more.
