    So, I hadn't seen anything about this until just now. It seems that the newest issue of Hobby Japan has revealed a new toyline from Bandai. Gundam Military Generation is a 1/18 scale action figure line that will be put out by Bandai's subsidiary, Megahouse. Looks like this is still early in development as there is not a release date yet, but the figures are looking might nice already. Initial assortment looks to be three Zeon soldiers, two mail and one female. Expect some funky Zeon guns, removable harness and belt, alternate heads with helmets, backpacks, bedroll, and a jetpack.

    I think it's safe to say that if this succeeds, we're likely to see some Feddies next. We can probably also expect pilots and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they explore some of the other series, like the ECOAS commandos from Unicorn or the ZAFT commandos from the first episode of SEED.

    These figures look really great! I have no interest in the characters but if they expand into other anime I’m interested in (Ninja Scroll), I’m in.

    Hoping for Char, regular uniform and also the space suit with space bazooka and space lance used at the end of the 0079 series.

    I was thinking the same thing, I'll gladly take a Char. I'd also like a Ramba.

    Are there fully painted or that’s the original colours they come in?

    Same! I’m disappointed the SHF prototype hasn’t been released...

    I’ll buy figures of the pilots: Amuro, Kai, Ryu, Hayato (Feds), Char, Ral, Tri-stars, M’Quve! I hope I don’t have to paint them though...

    These are unpainted prototypes. They'll be painted.

    I think the whole point of this line is generic solider.
    And you talk about char lamba lala ...
    Am I missing something?

    I'd be super into this line if the UC era soldiers didn't look stupid as hell.

    I think people are just posting what they hope gets released in the future.

    The line's intent may be generic soldiers, but there's no way Bandai isn't going to put named characters out in some capacity.

    They need someone to lead them into battle and generic isn't in the name

    Yeah sure. I would like a char a ramba as much as the next guy, it says in the text precisely that in thos line the main protagonist is generic solider that can be used in a fighting situation as well as an every day life stuff ( I speak read Japanese) 一般兵士 means regular solider

    Well just saw these not sure they show up anywhere else. I have wanted some Gundam articulated figures for a while. These are 4” Bring on Char.

    Product Description
    From the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam comes a new set of articulated figures based on the soldiers of the series - the Gundam Military Generation (G.M.G)! The very first in the series are three soldiers from the Principality of Zeon - two male and one female of various builds are in the line-up. Each figure is approximately 10cm in height (around 1/18th scale) and is fully articulated for all sorts of different poses.

    Each figure also comes with bonus parts which can be combined to form a giant auto-cannon! This Set Ver. includes special head parts for each soldiers as bonus.

    I saw these today and they look incredible. Even more so that they are 4”. But $40-$50 a piece? Ouch. Kickstarter figures don’t cost that much.

    Can't lie, I'd be down for a line of Gundam pilots. Hopefully they make a Origins Ramba Ral and someone besides Setsuna from 00

    Yeah, I’ve been eyeing these figures and they look great but I’m not trying to pay the premium for these characters right now. With the current GI Joe craze, I was thinking how that .50 would be nice for a Roadblock figure since ironically, Hasbro would make ray guns for him while these space themes figures have more realistic guns. :p 

    Either way, this looks like beautiful work and I look for ward to admiring more pictures of them and cuter figures from the line.
