Upcoming G-1 - G-4 Model Kits!

Post: # 55Post The Other Jason »

Hi all,

Academy Model Company of Korea is at it again! They have announced additional model kits in their original Gatchaman series line. This time includes the G-1 through G-4. Each can be displayed in "normal" or "attack" mode.

Their promotional video can be seen here.

They are said to be coming this December, the same as their previously-announced God Phoenix kit. No more details were given, but they will also probably by "snap-tite" kits with parts molded in correct colors.

Again, when I hear about any companies in the US importing them, or of a good source to import from Korea or Japan, I'll be sure to post it.

Hi all,

I found a picture of the boxes for the G-1 - G-4 models. It looks like they're going to be sold together as a set of four.

The good thing is the price for the package appears to be a very reasonable ₩25,000 (approx. $22.63 USD). It looks like they're expected to be in stock in Korea in mid-December.

More soon, hopefully!

Hi all,

Academy has released more images of their G-1 - G-4 model kits. Unfortunately it looks like they are going to require paint and glue. Here are each of them in "normal" and "attack" modes. All are without decals.

The G-1:

Hi all!

Here are some better pictures of the individual boxes for the G-1 through G-4 model kits, plus a picture of the back of the G-2's box. Below all of those is a picture from the back of the tray box that holds them all.

Hi all,

A couple Korean hobby sites are reporting that the G-1 - G-4 model kit sets are going to be released on January 13th. If so, they should be available for sale through Gmarket shortly afterward.

Hi all,

I mentioned in the thread about the God Phoenix model about buying through the Korean Gmarket site, as it will probably have the lowest retail prices. The same will hold true for these sets.

I had read that the G-1 - G-4 model set release got delayed slightly until the middle of this month. I had hoped they would start showing up this week and they have!

At least one seller has them listed now at around $20.60 US, plus an estimated $23.00 US for shipping.

Compare that to a seller on eBay in the US asking $49.59 US, plus $19.90 US shipping.

Use the "독수리 오형제" search term and look for "International Shipping" for seller options.

Or, here is a direct link with the search term applied.

A few more new images:

Good luck!
