Mobile phone manufacturer Oppo has now released the new Gundam Custom Edition. This is limited to 30,000 units and is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Gundam series.

The phone, as well the included accessories (even a complimentary shield design as a phone cover), comes in matching designs.

Based on the Oppo Reno Ace model, here are some of the specifications of the phone:

– 90Hz Screen Up To 1000 Nits
– ‘Dry Ice’ Constant Cooling System
– Snapdragon 855+
– SuperVOOC 2.0
– Game Color Plus
– 4D Vibration
– LinkBoost + Dual Wi-Fi
– 12GB RAM 256GB Storage
– LPDDR4x + UFS 3.0

The camera is no slouch either, on the back of the device, the camera setup comprises a 48MP f/1.7 main shooter, a 13MP f/2.4 telephoto camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 116-degree field of vision, and a 2MP monochrome camera.

Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that the Gundam Edition is available outside of the Chinese market, but for those interested, it’s priced at $3599CNY (approx. $745AUD).

New Sonic Movie Trailer – with new redesign.

Looks like the original Sonic Movie Trailer got quite a lot of backlash from Sonic fans every where. Even Yuji Naka one of the original creators from the Sonic team weighed in and said he wasn’t a fan.

Well after much controversy the Sonic movie director Jeff Fowler responded and promised the fans changes to the original design. Here we have it, a new design coupled with a new trailer. Below is an image of the old Sonic vs new Sonic design.

What do you all think? Better? Personally as a Sonic fan, I think it’s looking much better. Now looking forward to the upcoming with a more positive outlook.

Capcom Cosmetics?

Ok here’s something a little unusual, from the house of Capcom comes the latest in cosmetic fragrances. Unfortunately (fortunately?), it’s only available from the Japanese Capcom Store Tokyo (Parco, 6F Shibuya).

There’s 6 types to choose from “Monster Hunter Cross”, “Monster Hunter Double Cross”, “Imprisoned Palm” series, “Devil May Cry 5”, “Ace Attorney” lawyer version and “Ace Attorney” prosecutor version.

Didn’t you always want to spray on yourself Rathalos No.6 or perhaps some Narcugar No. 9, I’m sure it would’ve been tough farming those for the necessary materials. Maybe the heroes from Devil May Cry is more your thing, perhaps some essence of Dante or Nero or possibly even V.

Each series comes with 3 fragrances (except “Ace Attorney” lawyer version as there’s only 2) of 10ml bottles each. 5800Yen + tax for each series (3 bottles) and 4800yen + tax for “Ace Attorney” lawyer version (2 bottles).

They will be sold for a limited time and in limited quantities.
