In this image taken at the 2013 All Japan Model & Hobby Show , you can clearly see how Bandai is packaging the new Astro Carriers. Each kit comes with 21 Garmillas Fighters and 21 of that Carrier's specialized fighter-bomber plane. These kits also include a Mecha Scale (1/270) version of the specialized plane. Now if Bandai would releases some of the EDF Planes too, then I could do some X-WING Dogfighting...
According to Amazon Japan The Lambea will be available by January 18 and The Bulgrey follows on February 28. The Shuderg is scheduled for May.
I am very happy about these new models. Now I can build Earth Defense Force and Garmillas Imperial Astro Fleets in 1/1000 scale. Thinking about how cool these little planes are going to look as they zoom around the larger ships in deadly swarms...well, it makes me smile.
While Bandai has the triple assault of the Astro Carriers (with their fleet of one hundred and sixty two fighters and bombers) going, they are also releasing The Halzerad-class Astro Battleship with a Delamaya-class Amphibious Assault Ship; because they are Bandai, and they can make it happen...Baby!
The Halzerad-class Astro Battleship and Delamaya-class Amphibious Assault Ship bring The Garmillas Warships Sets to four in April! As of this posting, we do not know what the cool bonus kit will be...which is why we are happily confronted with a dreaded question mark in the April slot.
I will post more information on these awesome kits as it becomes available...
