T-ARTS' Green Ambition for Robotics SP and Thunder Force V

The Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. blog has updated with some news about Video Game Robotics SP and the Shooting Game Historica Thunder Force V mega set. First up are photos of a few of the new variations that will be included in the Video Game Robotics SP series. From Border Break are a sleek black Blast Runner Cougar Type 1 with yellow trim and another with a dark green paint scheme. From Wolf Fang is an Armor Force Ohga with a new big-ass gun. T-ARTS said they got a bit ambitious with the extra parts for Robotics SP, so they’re making more than they had originally planned. That also means that the Robotics SP series will be even more awesome than they intended. The tentative release date is August, but don’t be surprised if it turns out to be later since they’re such ambitious perfectionists over there.

T-ARTS' ambition is apparent in the two repainted and re-armed Cougars.

The Ohga gets a new big-ass gun in VGR SP.

T-ARTS will also have a special green variant of the Thunder Force V Vasteel ship. This green version is limited to only 100 pieces and will be sold at the Comic Market event on August 15th. The regular Thunder Force V super deluxe kit is nearly sold out, but it looks as though a small secondary release might be shipped out in August. If you haven’t been able to get one yet, you may have another chance.

The green Vasteel is limited to only 100 shooter-friendly homes.
