Shizuoka Hobby Show 2008

If I’m not mistaken, the 47th Shizuoka Hobby Show 2008 is being held on 15th-18th May 2008.

Here’s some photos I took from various websites. All the photos are about Bandai’s booth and of course Gundams.

There’s a large RX-78-2 Gundam at Bandai’s booth. Strong enough to attract lil girl to pose with him. ^^

Master Grade RX-78-2 Gundam ver.2.0

Bandai’s main product for the show. Master Grade RX-78-2 Gundam ver.2.0

Action pose.

Personally, I don’t really like this Ver.2.0 RX-78-2’s design. I think Bandai purposely designed it this way in order to keep the market of previous versions of RX-78-2, such as ver.OYW, ver.1.5, ver.KA.

RX-78-2 Gundam ver.2.0 poses latest inner frame technology from Bandai. Those who wants a good inner frame design may go for this kit, but 0 for appearance. If you like good looking one, go for previous versions. Thus, some buyers would buy various versions, and Bandai gets the profit.

From left to right. ver2.0, ver.OYW, ver1.5, ver.KA, ver1.0 (which only shows the leg in the photo)

I prefer the ver.OYW one.

Master Grade Shin Musha Gundam

I remember I posted about this kit before if my brain still functioning properly.

The box art is AWESOME. I’m falling for it.

A diorama based on a scene in the PS2/PS3 game, Gundam Musou.

and someone even made a 3DCG from it…

Gundam 00 series

1/100 scale products of Gundam 00 series.

upcoming 1/100scale model, MSJ-06II-A Tieren Ground Type.

I’m not going to have this. lol.

upcoming 1/100scale model, Gundam Astreae TYPE-F.

This is 1 of the bandai’s money shaker

Another money shaker, 1/100scale Gundam Avalanche Exia, which is still in production.

Those who bought Gundam Exia last time will definitely buy this Exia again, since this one with more equipments looks way more kick @ss than standard Exia.


Large GFF products.. Psycho Gundam Mk.II, in production.

Master Grade Force Impulse Gundam

Bandai is getting better and better in producing model kits, especially Gundam kits. The quality is incredible. Bandai is the only company that get licensed to produce gundam kits. (correct me if I’m wrong) By the way, they’re also getting better and better in gaining profits. LOL. here’s an example: MG Impulse Gundam, it has 3 backpacks in the anime, Force, Sword and Blast. They’ve launched the Force backpack, I bet Bandai’s gonna launch the Sword pack and Blast pack in near future.. OMG, Those who wants the 3 packs will have to buy 3 Impulse Gundams…
