Oh great, it's a Gunpla Builders redux. Why am I not surprised?
Not that that's entirely a bad thing, mind you. In fact, I think it's a good idea.
I LOVED the concept, and I'm kinda glad they're revisiting it, if only out of curiosity as to what (besides release who knows how many recolors of pre-existing HG 1/144 kits) they're going to do with it.

That being said, this new Gundam looks pretty cool, and HOLY CRAP THAT'S THE GX!!!!

I Guess it's too early for them to include 00 stuff still? At least Blue Destiny is still getting some love.

Either way looking awesome. Can't wait. The designs don't look too shabby either.

I wonder if I'll be able to keep a straight face through this series. Some of the ridiculous lines in builders made me burst out laughing... My expectations for complex story are low, but it looks like it'll have good action.

It seems to have the Gundam-Arcade-Pod feel of Gunpla Builders but on a truly futuristic scale. They could've expanded GB further, maybe a few more anime shorts, but these days I'll take what I can get.

Also, HGAW WING GUNDAM!!!

Gundam Build Fighters, "Gunpla Builders 2", after the main duo being the Builder and the Fighter/a Better Gamer.

Keyword: All Gundam. The show will include the basic designs as well as custom versions of mecha from all Gundam TV series up to Destiny. Bandai is also starting a campaign to get all of the lead Gundams, at least, in HG 1/144 starting with the Wing Gundam.

New Gundam is called "Build Strike Gundam", and it looked pretty good animated. Apparently Strike Rouge's "Phoenix" equipment for the Destiny HD Remaster was designed to promote the Build Strike's equipment change for this show.

They are still targeting the demographic they did for Gundam AGE, but making a show about the actual Gunpla rather than a traditional Gundam show should satisfy old fans as well because older fans know this is NOT a war show, they can't complain that it is "pretending" to be one.

It looks like it should be fun. It starts airing in October.

LOL the recolor variations are endless........
Bandai is like "Screw complex story and character development. Just make up s some random story about a bunch of kids kit-bashing gunpla and battling each other like Yugioh. It's a whole new level of milking!"


I think its' good that they are finally giving HGAC/UC treatment to other Gundam leads. And we'll finally see the F91 in 1/144 scale........

A bit disappoint for serious fans, yes, it has the staff and designers from AGE, but to say, kitbashing your Gundam, not a bad idea after all! As I said, Gunpla Beginners on steroids! Go Sunrise! :)

The whole Builder/Fighter concept looks to be a Graham/Billy-type relationship; one kid building a model that suits the other kid's 'piloting' style.' Kinda like Asuno's junior mobile suit team.

I dunno why I see some people complaining. I think Gundam could either use a break or do something differently, and for the moment, this is different. It has designs that looks pretty neat, it'll have new models that'll be cool, and overall, it's something a bit different. Kiddish? Sure. Fun? Looks like it to me. I'd rather have a fun, relaxing series than another serious, hamfisted one. (Don't get me wrong I love a lot of Gundam shows for the serious message and themes, but I think there should only be so many war is hell stories in a row)

About the new Gundam series: Hmm, interesting. Still with the disaster of AGE as well as needing time to absorb the lessons of Gundam Unicorn as well as dealing with the CE remasters, perhaps it is all for the best. But then again what do I know?

I could be wrong since there was no subs, but I think they said Yousuke Kuroda, the guy who wrote for Gundam 00 and Gunpla Builders, is in charge of the writing for this show.

Well, holy hell. I never thought in a million years they would actually take the Builders concept and turn it into a full-fledged TV show, but they did. Banrise, I salute thee. *salute*

This explains why the new Gundam looked like little more than a retooled Strike. That's exactly what it is.

AU crossover opportunities abound, old classic designs along with a multitude of various variations have the chance to make animated appearances -- already we're being treated to some original X and Wing kitbashes. This is going to be pretty cool!
