Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 also features a number of gameplay additions to the series, including three brand new featured systems, including the Partner Strike, Emergency Dash and Recovery Gauge Systems, which will bring a new level of tactical engagement to the series.

The new Recovery System enables players to recover armor during battle allowing players more flexibility in their tactics on the battlefield.

■ Creator's comment
A "wagtail" is a kind of bird, and I based mine off the grey wagtail. I have two boys, ages 3 and 4, and I could barely keep it away from them long enough to complete it!

■ Judges' comment
The grey wagtail was a common motif, and this example is impressively put together, especially considering its narrow escape from life as a toy. Its gold and orange coloring also reminds us of the logo, so of course we feel a little proprietary. (laugh) We hope you can enjoy making gunpla with your boys.

■ Creator's comment
A unit delivered to Londo Bell in U.C. 0093. An older unit pressed back into service due to budgetary limitations, its generator and backpack are nonetheless updated to their most modern versions. To keep up appearances, it's painted in the RGM-86R's coloring. ... Is what I imagined. It was quite enjoyable to put so much thought into the coloring and setting.

■ Judges' comment
The fine detail in the setting is summed up with its convincing color scheme. Not only is the build detail extremely fine, but the contrast of the vivid green and the grey, and the white and yellow highlights, bring out Kushi's incredible sense of color balance.

■ Creator's comment
Sorry for being in such a hurry that I couldn't set up a proper background for the photo. As this is a coloring contest, I tried to limit my modifications. The saber uses different parts, and the neck, torso, and legs are lengthened. The coloring scheme aims to bring out the sense of cherry blossoms. Things got a bit hectic near the end, but building it was a lot of fun :)

■ Judges' comment
This orthodox scheme at first appeared somewhat uninspired, but its subtle variation in tone are more appealing the more I think about them. At first I thought that a more vivid shade could have been chosen, but the panel line inking gives a firm contrast with the pale paint. The creator mentioned a "sense of cherry blossoms", but perhaps due to the photography it doesn't really spring out. Perhaps there's room to expand
on the theme. However, considered as a painting contest entry, the color scheme has wonderful balance.
