What are you thoughts on possible new gunpla announcments? Please leave us your comment below.


  1. My Prediction ...
    . MG: Gundam X Maoh, G-Self
    . RG: Infinite Justice
    . HG: Gundam 00 mobile suit maybe ....

    1. Hm. Your MG prediction might make sense. But then again, I suspect that X Maoh and Crossbone Maoh (for that matter) will be P-Bandai releases based off of the MG X and MG Crossbone Ver. Ka (obviously). And oh god... Really? MG G-Self? Have you seen how generally poorly received the HGs have been for most kits from the G-Reco line? I really don't think that Bandai would want to risk putting something like that into MG territory.

      RG Infinite Justice? Maybe?? But I would guess RG 00 Qan[t] next or maybe another RG from the EW Wing line up.

      HGs from Gundam 00? That would be very surprising. Maybe they would finally do a HG Seravee II so people can have a proper HG Raphael Gundam..LOL. Even though I don't collect HGs, I would think maybe the EW Wing line up? That might be feasible.

    2. That's funny suit on. Have you se n how poorly age did? And yet you think we will get a mg from that series. That's like a retard calling a kid with autism stupid. Hey suit on what happen to your prediction the bandai will never make amg banshee born green frame. That worked out well for you didn't. You Lil turd.

      There will be announcements for a
      Rg red astray
      Mg g self
      Mg red warrior

    3. I think the main reason for the G-Reco backlash is how many stickers are required. A MG G-Self with everything molded in color could salvage the series

    4. I don't know where did you find out that G-Reco's Gunpla sales are poor. Must be pulling some BS again due to your one sided G-Reco hate.

      Despite G-Reco's "love it or hate it" status also affecting the mecha designs, they still deserve some releases.
      Anon738's post including a G-Self for MG is a sign that there are people who like G-Reco's mecha designs just like there are people who dislike it.

      So this is what you're doing to people who have different list than you. Insult their own wishlists/predictions and implying that your own lists/predictions is superior because you're playing a false Nostradamus by predicting Bandai's future moves.

    5. I like the G-Self's design but to be honest I'm more of a fan of the G-Arcane and Gaeon and those would be interesting MG releases if it ever came to that or the Grimoire.

  2. Master Grade releases let alone announcements have been very scarce. But my infamous list still stands.

    Perfect Grades?
    GN-001 Gundam Exia
    GNT-0000 00 Qan[T]

    That is all.

    1. Oh God, will you stop acting like a child!?

    2. You know, naming every MS you can think of can hardly be called a wishlist.

    3. holy sweet santa christ

    4. I must be nice to have no life no job no responsibility and just post ridiculous wish list on line. The only thing that is a bigger joke then you is gg infinite.

    5. Suiton, Suiton, Suiton...

      They already gave up with Gundam AGE, even though I wanted AGE-3 and its variants.

      Did you just asked for Build Strike Cosmos? I thought that you could simply make one by buying an MG Build Strike FP and Universe Booster, and ditch the shield and weapons to recreate it?

      Seriously? MG Winning Gundam and Star Winning? And do you want to add SxDxG to that list?

      I do agree that they must make Zaku Amazing and Build Burning, but only the latter will become a reality, together with the G-Self.

      As for the rest? Dream on.


    7. You already acknowledge that your list is infamous yet you continue to spam them.

    8. RG ELS Qan[t]?

      HAHAHA!!! Goodluck with that!!!!

    9. i am pretty certain that i told you one time that the rg exia repair 2 will be a resin
      hell half of your damm wishlist is already done with resin kits

  3. RG astray red frame and blue frame please...

  4. A Goddamn MG Dendrobium. Why? Because fuck my wallet that's why.

  5. Suiton, this is your call...

  6. GRM Gundam or Gundam Plutone, hg or re/100

  7. would it be to much to ask that they announce at least one of those OWY real grades?

  8. MG build burning? MG g-self ? MG zaku origin ver?
    Rg gundam ground type? RG GM?

  9. I really want to see the new Master Grade Freedom Gundam remastered Ver! And I want to see if they make Real Grade infinite Justice Gundam or Real Grade Implues Gundam. But also Real Grade Unicorn Gundam.😀

    1. I'm with you on that. MG Freedom RM Ver. would be awesome; even more so if we get a MG Justice.

  10. I'm hopeful for a RG Gouf Custom, Ground Gundam, Dom, or GP-02. What I want to see but likely won't is more RG's from Gundam Wing Endless Waltz (Heavyarms in particular).

    And even though it's not a Gundam, I am super hyped for the Pacific Rim model kits from Max Factory. Gipsy Danger and Cherno Alpha are at the top of my must-have list.

  11. I hope they'll announce RG Gundam Ground Type u.u

    1. If you're talking RG, I think maybe RG 00 Qan[t] would be next.

    2. Next RG won't be the Qan[T] expect a RG from a different series then after that we will hopefully see Qan[T]

    3. How can you be so sure it definitely won't be the RG 00 Qan[t]?

    4. Because they almost never do back to back release from the same series, apart from the ones early on in the RG development line. Bandai only produce one RG every three months or so, if they do back to back release (for example, releasing RG 00 immediately after Exia), people who dislike the series or not a fan of the designs will be missed out for half a year, RG releases isn't as often as Monthly release like MG or HG, Bandai wouldn't risk losing the steam by putting all the eggs in one basket, it's just simple marketing strategies. Which is why Strike Freedom didn't come right after Destiny and Justice didn't come right after Freedom. Realistically I would put Qan[T] in the slot this time next year, and probably return to UC suits like Nu or Ground gundam for the next RG release.

    5. Becoz it always has been alternating between UC time line and alternate timeline, except for the last 3 release where they skiped one UC and instead sandwich a wing ew between exia and raiser, whereas the rest have always been that pattern, that's y dumbass.

  12. I'd like to see the RG Line Have the Nu Gundam And Hi Nu Gundam. The HG Line to have ALL new HGAC such as Heavy Arms and Deathsythe. And the PG Line to have Banshee this year with the Norn Options and an Awakening Unicorn.

    1. HGBF already released the hi nu variation earlier so it's highly unlikely, for nu gundam (already released for MG ver ka) it's also unfavorable since there is other option from lead gundam series like the god/shining gundam, ground gundam and zz gundam for RG release. just my 2 cents

  13. I'd love to see either MG Nataku or MG Zaku 3.0 announced, as for RE/100 I really want to see a Queen Mansa in this line.

    1. A MG for Altron EW (i.e. Nataku) would be awesome. Zaku 3.0 is something I wouldn't buy but I'm surprised it hasn't been done yet.

      In terms of RE 1/100, I think maybe Kshatriya would be a good choice?

    2. Queen Mansa!!! Sign me up!

  14. Just give us MG G-Self, MG Build Burning and MG AGE-FX and I will be happy.

    OR just release a MG Jegan!

  15. Next RG astray red frame

  16. PG Exia, wait what? cant we get antagonist suits like the Aegis Gundam or the Reborns Gundam

  17. Probably more of the same crap. I don't expect anything original or interesting.
    Just give me an RG Nu, and then you can go back to making the same shit over and over.

  18. Hoping to see new RE/100 announcements, especially a 1/100 scale Kshatriya!

  19. MG G Self
    MG V2
    MG ZZ 2.0

    1. An update to the ZZ model would be fantastic. The Sentinel MG FAZZ is still one of my favourite kits--appearance wise--but the the design leaves something to be desired. It's a complex suit, without a doubt, but MG technology has come so far since the late 90s, I'm certain they could make something special with a Ver 2.0.

    2. Yup, I've been holding out on it this whole time, hoping they make a 2.0 version. Hopefully by the end of this year or next year.

  20. Rg astray, mg g self and mg bf read warrior will be announced.

  21. Either an announcement of MG Ver 2.0 from the OYW Gundams such as the Alex, Ez8, Ground Type etc. to the Gundam Development Project such as the GP01, GP02 and GP03 or a Xi Gundam Ver Ka. December release. Looking forward to these the most.

  22. I just want a MG Jesta Cannon, MG Jegan, and a MG Geara Zulu. They already made the Zulu's rifle to go with the Full Frontal Geara Doga.

  23. MGs: Either Reborns or Providence would be nice
    RE/100s: Definitely Woundwort
    RGs: GM
    HGs: HGCE Strike Dagger, pls? :(

  24. I'd like to see RG ZZ gundam

  25. I want to see MG g self...

  26. Didn't have anything in mind about mg, hg and rg, but bit hoping if bandai will release neo gundam on re 1/100.

  27. This is more of a wishlist rather than a prediction, though (And you can thank suiton for making the habit of posting wishlists look bad)

    MG - Reborns, ZZ 2.0
    RG - ZZ, Nu
    RE - Xi, Queen Mansa, Kshatriya, Psyco Gundam (either the original or MK-II)
    PG - Nothing, for now.

    1. Also, HG - Le Cygne

    2. Rest assure =)
      posting wishlist doesn't look bad at all....but spamming wishlist is annoying sometimes...

      btw, am I the only one that looking forward to bandai announcing SD gundam? Musha amazing red warrior...anyone? No?

    3. Musha amazing? Why...... why not?

  28. RG RX-78 VER.KA
    MG RX.78 VER.KA

    seems legit!

  29. MG Victory 2 Assault Buster Gundam, and thus all mid season upgrades/final Gundams (except AGE onwards) will be complete

  30. The moment you realize that a bunch of my proposed GunPla are coming...

    ┏(-_-)┛┗(-_- )┓┗(-_-)┛┏(-_-)┓

    1. Even a blind squirrel finds a but once in awhile.

      If you spam 20 kits your bound to get on right eventually.

      I fail to see why you want so many kits to get mg form or a rm form. You should at least buy one kit and build it before you demand bandai create more kits you'll never build.

    2. The moment you realize that a bunch of your proposed GunPla still remains a bunch of proposals...


  31. MG Jesta Cannon,
    MG Char's Zaku II ver 3

    But RE Quinn mansha would be awesome!!

    1. I suppose an MG Nightingale will be possible if everyone can buy a PG-priced Master Grade. But not everyone can so....

  32. MG Gears Zulu and variant. Mass release for regular Gears Zulu, Guard types, and Angelo's custom. P-bandai release for other custom suit. Bandai can essentially reuse the same frame and many parts from MG Gears Dogs.

    1. Stupid autocorrect. I meant Geara, not Gears. Doga, not dogs.

  33. MG:
    -AB Victory 2 Gundam
    -Zeta Gundam Ver. 3.0

    -Unicorn Gundam
    -Nu Gundam

    Reborn 100:
    -Delta Kai

    -The rest left of Crossbone gundam series

  34. MG
    - FAZZ Gundam ver 2.0
    - V2 Gundam
    - Transient Gundam

    - Deathschyte hell EW
    - Heavy Arms EW
    - Shenlong EW
    - Sandrock EW

    - Queen Mantha


  35. MG: V2 Assault-Buster, Delta kai

    RG: RX-79G, Ez-8

    HGUC: GP04, Todesritter, Pixie, Woundwort, Hyzenthlay

    If Bandai keeps up with the whole BuilderFighter crap, I'm afraid they might make more losses than usual because the BuilderFighter merchandise are plain childish, shallow and don't appeal much to more mature audiences, who of course has more buying power than children.

    Another thing is, fans from both BuilderFighter and G no Reconguista pay more attentions to eye candy characters and fanservices rather than showing interests at the mechs. And if this trend keeps up, sooner or later Bandai may have to shut down the Gundam franchise and venture into idol anime shows like Love live and Pripara by making dolls.

    1. Sorry you're wrong. Some people like reconguista's ms design, included me. And i don't pay attention on eye candy character and fanservice (is there a fanservice on reconguista in the first place), but more on story progress and character interaction.

      And gundam franchise won't die because it more targeted toward kids, or this is most appropriate things because they need regenerate the fans with new one and not only stuck with oldies. Bandai can't completely dependent on older fans because they'll grow older and some will tired with their hobbies. And without new fans as successor of this franchise, that's time when the francise died.

    2. Frankly speaking, the MS designs from G no Reconguista are pretty odd and not inspiring for my taste. So I won't be interested in any of the HG gunplas from this title because I always go for more articulated and realistic designs like 08 MS team or Endless Waltz: Glory of Losers.

      The story plots in G no Reconguista are very murky, weak and can easily get entangled along the way. The characters are literally hyperactive spoil brats, who are so overeager to kill people and wage wars whenever they get their hands on any mobile weapons. These war wackies only come to their senses when their toys were broken.

      And when it comes to fanservices, Builder Fighter series are full of it.

      I am really not pleased with the current Gundam titles, especially titles like SEED, 00, AGE and BuilderFighter that are very poorly written and full of flawed designs. It also show that Gundam's standards are going down hill and still failed to achieve new heights. Not even Tomino's come back with his latest work-G no Reconguista can keep the Gundam franchise relevant in today's market.

      The Gundam franchise is in stagnation, it is not progressing any further and will probably die a slowing death soon.

  36. MG:g-self and build burning,RG:build burning or star build strike,PG:g-self i guess much better in perfect pack!!and build burning because of more freedom in gimmicks! g-reco is well like in japan than the build fighter series,bandai will focus in japan first what i mean expect the 2 series release.
