What would you do if you went to the store, and while you were taking a look at the instant soups you found this?

 Personally? I would say I know what I was eating for the week, and pick up the 4 diffrent kits.


These CUP NOODLES MINI GUNPLA from Nissin will be released on 31th August: the last day of the 1/1 Gundam in Odaiba. It’s quite ironic since the Gunpla contained are in 1/380 scale: the smallest Gundam model kits ever produced! There are 4 different mini model kits: RX-78-2 Gundam, MS-09 DOM, MS-06S CHAR’s ZAKU II (red) and MS-06F ZAKU II (green).

For pictures of the Kits, check out Hobbybedia’s page, (Warning, Site is in Italian, link translated).

Quantummechanix has made some pretty awesome things over the years… but their latest bit… it will make some fans extremely happy.

Yes, that is the Serenity, specifically based off the movie version, and it is freaking huge.  Here are some of the stats on it from Quantummechanix’s page:

Some of the features of Serenity – The Big Damn Replica:
  • One big boat. Our Serenity measures 19″x12″x7″, or 1:180 scale. (stand adds 4.5″)
  • Incredible complexity. The kit used to build Serenity consists of more than 250 parts, including resin, brass, aluminum and laser-cut acrylic.
  • Film-quality build. Some 30 different colors, including flat and metallic paint, are used in the ship’s multilayer paint master.
  • Spitting image. Weathering, wear and other painting effects are designed to exactly mirror the movie version of ship.
  • Superior components. Surfaces are crafted to simulate real-world materials – metal, ceramic, even the mirrored surfaces of the solar panels.
  • No decals. All graphics on Serenity are painted on by hand.
  • SFX Edition. Our SFX Edition incorporates some 32 lighting effects, including static, flashing, strobe and chase lights.

Right now they putting together a waiting list for people who want to know when it becomes available.  Click through for more information and pictures [Quantummechanix]
