F-14A TOMCAT homecoming journey! F-14A TOMCAT FEVER!
The Tamiya 1: 48 scale Grumman F-14A Tomcat, sold increasingly from this November. It’s a superkit released without sparing on the craft and the know-how as the latest model from the same firm of the masterpiece machine series. The final product’s degree of attention to details is also very high, and that can be seen in the success of being featured all at once in every model building magazine right after it was put on sale. In this magazine feature, you can read in depth about the F-14’s appealing points and the Tamiya kit.
MG High-Mobility model Zaku “Psycho Zaku” (GUNDAM THUNDERBOLT Version)
As the second season is said to start in the 2017 spring anime section, equally in 2016, Gundam fans’ level of attention rose up when, finally, the inevitable “Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt” Psycho Zaku, the prohibited model suit piloted by Io Flaming’s greatest rival, Daryl Lorenz, debuted with its MG Ver. Ka!
The confrontation with the full armour Gundam has an increasing implementation in the master grade (MG) world! In this month’s number, there is a complete explanation for this big item, perfect to come with New Year’s holidays! Take a careful look at the details boasting this overwhelming volume.
“Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN IV Eve of Destiny”
The screening of Char and Sayla saga’s climax, “Eve of Destiny”, ended successfully. With the announcement of “Loum part” production, which depicts the Loum war between the Earth Federation and the principality of Zeon, “Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN” showed an incredible build-up. Affected by this fervor, the gunpla exhibition was also well received. Both Char’s personal Zaku I, the protagonist’s mobile suit from “Eve of Destiny”, and the Bugu (Ramba Ral’s machine) HG kit were announced in December.
Adding an example review of said HG kit, with the HG specifications, there is an unfolding of the Black Tri-stars personal Zaku I and an example of the Guncannon initial production model, gathering all the main mobile suits from “Eve of Destiny”.
Let’s give out all the new images about the “Loum part”.

“Kantai Collection –Kancolle-”
From the popular browser game “Kantai Collection – Kancolle-”, Battleship Nagato class's 2nd ship “Mutsu” appears with an impressive 1/7 scale figure. The best style-wise out of all the Big 7, wearing a composed smile with an adult-like charm and a glamorous body, top in the serie.
Thanks to the highlighted volume, the ship outfit show a rotating gun turret and the gun barrel, which can move up and down. The parts of the ship outfit on the back and the chains can be removed from the body, displaying a “Lightweight Ver.”, without the armaments. Also, in the “Limited edition” there is a common privilege “military badge” from this popular series!

Finally presenting the powerful clergy type, Cleric, from the “Bikini Warriors” figure series! Cleric’s beauty was faithfully reproduced in a figure, with her modest chest size and a cute looking face that lets out a little devil vibe, and with a charming, almost magical, behind. Also, there is a “limited edition” too for this item, and it comes with two ultra-luxurious special features. For all of you high level adventurers, the Limited edition is a precious gem, featuring Takamura Kazuhiro’s newest illustration in a “A3 Cross poster” size and a new anime “OAV Blu-ray” showing a special Cleric episode made just for the figure.

“SHOW BY ROCK!!”
Debuting Cyan, the long awaited protagonist of the TV anime “SHOW BY ROCK!!”! The “live start” Cyan was lovely rendered in 3D. The motif is a Plasmagica illustration, in which she stands in a very cute pose. The amount of high points in it is incredible, with details such as the kitty ears, that she moves adorably in the show, the tail, the frills and ribbons, to the bell at the base of the neck. It’s actually a remedy to “Strawberry Heart” Mr. Berry’s fixation on playing guitar! The yaeba (protruding canine) charm point was also perfectly replicated, hence the figure perfectly cramming Cyan’s appeal.
