Odaiba’s Gundam Is Back In The House

A while back, Japan’s entertainment precinct, Odaiba saw the set up of a life sized Gundam statue which had a ton of people flocking to see it, locals and tourists alike.

Needless to say like all good things, it didn’t last and was only a temporary attraction which was pulled down and carefully dismantled after a month of being on display. Well, the powers that be must have been pleased with the turnout because the Gundam model is back in Odaiba. And the even better news is that this time, he’s back for one full year!

Japandaman Dailies’ resident ninja in training, Eiro, took some snaps for the K’s House Tokyo Oasis blog (link) so a big thanks to Eiro-san! And don’t forget, if you’re going to be in town, don’t miss out this time and stay at K’s House Tokyo Oasis in central Asakusa with the friendliest crew in Japan!

Monster Hunter 3G Bundles

Capcom are readying themselves for one of the biggest launches yet for the 3DS in Japan. Monster Hunter 3G comes out in Japan December 10 and Capcom have pulled out all the stops with the following bundles.

The basic pack will net you the game and a Monster Hunter themed alarm clock (¥5, 800), there’s the extended edition will features the previous pack as well as movable figure that’s posable (¥8, 800). Or you can opt for the slide pad instead which is ¥6, 640 or else you can get the pack which bundles everything mentioned for ¥9, 99o. The figure by itself will set you back ¥6, 460. The figure is a tad pricier than the game and alarm clock, so I’ve posted a gallery below of the figure so you can see what your yen is getting you 🙂

Review: Rei Ayanami Deformation Maniac Figure Collection DX

large_17318_reifigureNeon Genesis Evangelion broke new ground as an anime and has amassed a huge cult following since it first aired and now you can join the many Otakus around the world that have embraced Evangelion as the true classic that it is with this Rei Ayanami figure. Hailing from the Deformation Maniac Figure Collection by Banpresto, this delightful figure stands 6″ tall complete with a stand that you can plug her into for easy displaying in any room. The base is a hexagonal shape, see through in design with some circuit art etched into the base stand itself. The figure features a huge bobble head that sits nicely atop the body of Rei wearing her ever popular plug suit from EVA. Really awesome work on the colours with no discernible colour bleeding or fading. They’ve done a fantastic job of essentially shrinking her down to size but yet keeping a good deal of detail on the suit. The pose itself is very cute and childlike as she’s holding her arms back with her chest sticking out, very cool. Her head is a real show stopper with her big red eyes, excellent paint work on the eyes showing off the shine to them, little button nose and barely open mouth conveying a sense of innocence and fragility that Rei brought to the series. Her hair is a beautiful shade of blue with a tie at the back and the synonymous transmitter plugs at the the top of her head. To be completely honest, the only thing I can find fault with, and this is being really picky, is that I had some difficulty in attaching the figure to the stand itself as the plugs in her feet didn’t want to quite match up with the holes in the base. But that’s just pulling hairs really as this figure is quite striking, unique and a must for Evangelion and figure collector fans. Pick it up today from Otaku Fuel.
