I had another excuse to visit Tokyo, this time for the All Japan Model & Hobby Show. The event was at Tokyo Big Sight Aomi exhibition hall in Odaiba, but I made the mistake of going to the actual Tokyo Big Sight one station away.
Anyway, once I finally made it there, I went straight to the Hasegawa section to find some aircraft decals. Unfortunately the selection this time was quite limited, so I left empty-handed as I wandered around to other sections.

At the Bandai section, the upcoming MG release is the FAZZ ver. ka. It looks thicc, and comes with a hefty pricetag as well: 11,000yen.

Another bulky-looking item was the HGUC Penelope from Hathaway’s Flash. Not sure what this mode is supposed to be. Bird-mode?

And surprise, surprise… we have another RX-78 variant. This one’s called the Industrial Design ver., or G40 after the upcoming 40th anniversary. There was a promo video highlighting the design aesthetics but so far I’m not too impressed.

What’s quite impressive is the Metal Structure RX-93 Nu Gundam. At 1/60 scale, it’s a ready made figure with intricate details. Also comes with an eye-watering pricetag: approx. 100,000yen.

The rest of the stuff there were mostly P-Bandai, like the PG Perfect Strike, RG Phenex, MG Destiny etc. Other stuff that caught my eye was the cute Kei truck.

And what’s this? Some collaboration with Nissin ramen? Soon we’ll be scratch building some ramen toppings…

At the Little Armory section, there’s some upcoming releases, but it’s mostly variants of existing kits. The M16A4 and chainsaw looks interesting though…

There were a lot of anime girl kits at the Kotobukiya section, I’m just highlighting this female Ludens from Kojima Productions.

So that’s about it for the highlights. The rest of the photos are below. Enjoy…
