I just got this link to pictures from the Japanese hobby show that was just held. There are a bunch of pictures and some pictures of things that have been mentioned on here. Enjoy!

Some of those buildings would be great for Godzilla dioramas. But that gun stuff is crazy. Great way to get shot in the good old US of A.

The mobile drilling rig would be interesting to build and did anyone notice the deep sea fish/monster underneath Bandai's Shinkai DSV? That wasn't mentioned before, just the crew and divers.

The buildup of the Shinden 2 from Hasagawa was pretty cool as well. The Voyager probe kit looked pretty large (and fragile).

Ah, very good and interesting, thank you.

There is also this link on the Yamato series display:

I shows some of the new Finemolds Missile Carriers and Fleet Flagships, plus the guys awesome scratchbuilt Andromeda.
That like does show some good models of the Space Cruiser Yamato, I would not mind if they where sold over here.

Funny that Dragon's Thor figure kit gets the pose everyone would love to see Iron Man in...

Can't complain too much though, they all look great, although I know at least one person that hates the Iron Man pose. Wonder if they're styrene, vinyl, or a combination?

I seriously doubt that they're styrene. They're probably some sort of vinyl. After all, the promo art says "new generation model kit". I read on another site that they're also going to be pre-painted. Not ideal, but paint can be stripped easily enough.

Hobbylink Japan has posted a video from the Platz booth (the Japanese importer of Dragon Models). It confirms the Avengers kits are pre-painted.


All their other show videos can be seen here. I think the Bandai video is still forthcoming.
