Sounds new? well, technically it is, but the defining aspect of the hobby remains the same. The only thing that changed is the characters. Yep, I'm talking about the Keroro Model kits, based on the anime Sgt. Keroro.
Basically, what you would love with these kits is that they came out with the MK II types, and their much more detailed and engaging. Yep engaging because unlike the previous models, these new Keroro kits have three different forms. Yep, these small SD sized plastic models can turn into three different forms!
One of the forms, it also turns into the common stand up robo and one of the legs of the big robo keroro!
And get this, completing all 5 keroro MK II's form one big keroro robo!! Kewl eh!?
But as of now, I only have Keroro and Kululu... the others are hard to find and the Ninja type is yet to be released.
But even if I just have these two for now, its still a pleasure posing and playing with them while I wait for the others to hit the toy shelves! Oh and they just cost 500 each.
Well besides their new robots, the little frogs are also a bundle of cuteness. If you don't get mesmerized by the mecha, the Keroro figures will, especially the fully posable arms and legs because they even have joints in their tiny arms and legs.
Overall, if you want something cute and fresh and cheap that you can build, modify and enjoy, try KEROPLA!!
