Linkin' Park did some theme music for, I think, a new Gundam arcade game.
Old news...

Game: Gundam Extreme Versus
Song: "The Catalyst"

Gundam Extreme has a guitar shaped beam rifle.

I prefer the Eighties-drenched sensibility of Richie Kotzen's English version of the First Gundam theme song, myself. HOT LIXX!

I have that album. :-)

Zaku's been hitting the juice. But it's cool: the prosecution will just fuck up and present banned evidence. Mistrial!

That model came out last year to coincide with the GunPla Builders TV show (its a modern PlaMo Kyoshiro).

Oh whoops...so much for "News". :P

That Bearguy's pretty neat though!
I posted both of those earlier in this thread, but no one pays attention to what I post unless I act like a jerk.

Vince, put your face right up to the monitor and imagine me giving you a big hug. Mmmm...hugs.
<<I posted both of those earlier in this thread, but no one pays attention to what I post unless I act like a jerk.>>

Are you sure it's not the other way around? Maybe people ignore your posts BECAUSE you act like a jerk (not to be confused with TEH JERK).

I actually bought the Beargguy model recently on deep discount, locally. It's so darn cute, and I feel so darn dirty.

I don't recall how long ago I posted the model pics. Too lazy to backtrace the thread.

Or a MG of Gaplant?

I'm liking the Delta Plus design a lot.

Hahaha wow, the "dragon" mode looked a LOT better in the design art.

Words fail me. Actually, they don't: "two beam-burritos and a slurpee, please."

Wow! Japanese toys at every local 7-11 coming even more true than the DomoKun promotion. Weee!
You want ketchup on your hot dog??
I think they did a GFF version of the 7-11 Gundam, too. As I recall, the color scheme was very nicely balanced on that one, with those understated Fix color shades.

800, That's one strange Gundam.

I saw the sample "Mega Size Model" of Gundam AGE displayed in a store downtown the other day, and in spite of having no particular love for or even any real interest in the series, I was impressed -- at least visually.

It's really huge (close to 40cm, which is like 15" tall), it's blocky, it's colorful, it lights up. Almost reminds me of those old "Deluxe" Gundam toys from the Eighties.

Check out the last photo in this Amiami page, the low-angle shot. It's really got some presence. And all the little vents all over it look great at large scale.

I don't have pics handy but shown off where actual toys for Gundam Age. Not Robot Damashii but toys with exposed screws and aren't terribly expensive (think like those 7 1/2 inch G Gundam figures). This shows that they're definitely targeting a younger demographic here.

Edit. Pic showing what I'm talking about. The limbs can be swapped.

There is also an ANA version of Gundam. I went to the ANA facilities and saw the 1/12 scale one. I will post a photo as soon as I figure out how to get photos out of my cel phone.
Honest to goodness Gundam TOYS. Not collector figures but 1/100 with screws made of ABS toys.

Interchangeable limbs? That's dope as hell.

It's weird that you have to buy the AGE's Titus limbs in two separate sets:
[www.hlj.com]
[www.hlj.com]
and it would be nice if they were CHEAPER - a set of arms and legs costs just 300 yen less than a full figure. I suppose the Titus limbs do consist of more plastic than the standard AGE limbs, though.

On the other hand, this is really cool:
[www.hlj.com]
At no extra cost, you can get a special edition of the AGE morpher with the AGE-01's torso in red. Presumably that shade of red matches either the Titus limbs or the Genoace's main color, but even if it doesn't quite match, it should make for some good-looking combinations with those figure parts.

Damn it, I don't care about Gundam AGE at all, but this gimmick just might get me buying these toys!

They're expensive cos they've got a load of electronics in them designed to interact with an arcade game in Japan. Each body piece has it's own chip so whatever you piece together will be recognised by the machines.

THIS IS AWESOME.
I dunno if it's actually a significant component of the price - it's probably just an RFID chip no more complex than an anti-theft tag.
But man, that's cool. I totally missed that fact in the description of the AGE Device.

Like Paul, I definitely dig the concept...but I just think the Gundam design, itself, is very uninteresting. And those red add-on limbs are kinda terrible. I'd love to see OYW MS' (non-Katoki) done up like this.

I kinda agree.Still, the Gafran is tempting.

I love how it looks with one Titus arm and one normal arm. Yeah, pretty sure I'm going to end up getting into this line...

Hey, the joints look like they are compatible with MugenBine and those sentai combiners.
