List of new 2013 High Grade Build Fighter Gunpla 1/144 HGBF (Part 2)

The new 2013 Gundam Build Fighters series is an unusual Gundam series. In this series, the whole Gundam universe is a Gunpla (Gundam Plastic) model. Nevertheless, this concept already put into anime in Model Suit Gunpla Builder G Beginning. As the result, Gundam Build Fighters remake many of classic Gunpla designs, and on this Part 2, I'll posted other Bandai HGBF (and other timeline) releases in connection to Build Fighter series.

The whole Gundam Build Fighter series can be viewed free on their Youtube Channel, translated into English, Korean and Mandarin language! I divide this post into two parts. The main HGBF line up, consisted of Build Strike, X Maoh, Zaku Amazing (later Kampfer Amazing), Wing Fenice and others have been posted on PART 1. -  PART 3 (January 2014)

RX-178B Build Gundam Mk-II
1/144 HGBF - Character : Sei Iori and Reiji
Buy it Here - Amazon

The second protagonist gunpla in the Build Fighter series (the first one is Build Strike). It is a classic mecha from Zeta series. Most of Zeta fans will be pleased to see Mk-II appeared as yet another protagonist in the series, although I personally think Sunrise should used more un-ortodhox mecha, maybe Sinanju... well, no.

PPMS-18E Kämpfer Amazing
1/144 HGBF character : Tatsuya Yuuki alias Meijin Kawaguchi
Buy it now - Amazon - on Sale January 2014

This is Tatsuya's second Gunpla after his Zaku Amazing. After mysteriously withdrawn from local competition in the round where he supposed to face Sei, Tatsuya revealed to have been hired to work in mysterious PPSE company. Kampfer is PPSE representative in the World Tournament. Kampfer is highly bad-ass looking mecha and this re-design is just good.  It is from MS Gundam 0080 : War in the Pocket movie.  Meanwhile see my other Kampfer photos here.

Sengoku Astray Gundam
1/144 HGBF character: Nils Nielsen
Buy it HERE - Amazon

Another highly popular Gunpla model, Astray. The samurai Gundam got his slot in Build Fighter series in Sengoku Astray form. Interestingly the model is owned by western guy, Nils Nielsen. The model also got a package of weaponry in 1/144 Matsury Weapon.

KUMA-03 Beargguy III
1/144 HGBF character : China Kousaka
Buy it Here - Amazon

This odd Teddy bear looking gunpla is owned by the female protagonist China Kousaka. It was actually not new design, it was from Gundam G-Builder Beginning G series. If you want to impress your female counterpart with gunpla, Beargguy III is your extreme gift to her.

NMX-004 Qubeley Papillon
1/144 HGBF character : Aila Jyrkiainen
Buy it from Amazon - released on February 2014

Very intrigue gunpla design. This is taken from Zeta Gundam series. The color itself did not convincing for me, so it's quite the shame that this killer looking mecha get a weirdo color scheme. The character who play this model is a girl Aila Jyrkiainen, in the series she defeated the previous world champion, meaning she is extremely hot shot. As the series grow, Aila has clearly secured the place of most favorite female character of the show.

AGX-04 Gerbera Tetra
1/144 HGBF character : Kirara
Buy it Here - Amazon

This crimson red looking gunpla is actually belonged to cute idol Kirara. The design reminiscence alot to Sinanju or Sazabi.  In episode 4 Build Fighter, Kirara manages to knock off Sei in the combat scene. Gerbera Tetra was from 0083: Stardust Memory.

GM Sniper K9 
1/144 HGBF - on sale February 2014

Sniper is gunpla belong to Renato Brothers of Argentina. They secured place in final 16 and even defeated one of fans favorite to advance to final 8. Sniper K9 comes with bloodhound support unit.

Here the rest of Build Fighter mecha that pending the making

Apsalus III, Apsalus is not a 'human' form gunpla, but rather a fortress tank. Owned by age 40 gunpla fighter, pretty odd. His name is Tatsuzo. According to mr Ral, Tatsuzo was a strong fighter in the past. He must experienced something bad that turned him into bad property-shark guy.

OZ-00MSVa Tallgeese Valkyrie - character : Greco Logan, second strongest contestant in US, defeated by Nils Nielsen.

Knight Gundam - character : Caroline Yajima, build by Nils Nielsen. A minor side story put this Super Deformed (SD) model into the series.
