From what I've seen on eBay, Mini Defenders based on the new anime are starting to appear. There are three sets so far and they contain a nice range of characters. In a suprising move, Knight Mercurius and Veyeate are in the same set. As for the ones based on older shows- it seems these were originally released in Japan as capsule toys.Duke said:I picked up a few sets of the SD Gundam Mini-Defender sets yesterday. I got the two Char's Counterattack sets with the two main ships as playsets (Forgot the actual name of the ships). I do wish that instead of two versions of the Neo Zaku that one of them was a Federation ship so that there could be 5 MS per playset, but oh well.
I also got 3 of the 6 Gundam Fight sets.
Set 1: Gundam Scimitar, MA Murphy (the Helicopter one), Shining Gundam (regular Mode), Spike/Tequila Gundam, MS Pescadore (The blue Aqua MS)
Set 2: Arachno Gundam, MS Butler, Gundam Rose, Gundam Maxter, MS Murphy (The transformed version of the Helicopter MS)
Set 3: Mummy Gundam XIII, Dragon Gundam, Grizzly Gundam, Mummy Gundam IV, Bolt Gundam
For those who have no idea what the Mini-Defenders are, they're 1" tall figures that have basically one pose & that's it, and are basically collectible and displayable. The figures this time are pretty decent, though some of the paint jobs suck.
Bandai have started releasing MSiA that have missile firing gimmicks. I think the only two so far are GP02 and Wing Zero Custom. The missiles fire from the Atomic Bazooka/Twin Buster Rifle.Spike Mcdougal said:I long forgot about this....Uh the transforming one but what's this about the missiles?
