Bandai has brought out a card game based on Gundam with limited results. Yet they lead the way with tiny miniatures of all their mechs. Unfortunately none of which is playing in a table top game.

Just three of a multi-series release of Gundam mechs in the same scale.

It seems a shame that there has been none. Sure there is the same click based mech game in Japan as is here but with different figures.

Sample of selection of mechs from series 3 & 7

With this selection, you think a game would be possible. There is more than enough grunt mechs to blowup. Bases are something to be desired for game playing. They’re rectangular but not a consistent size. If it weren’t for the fact that these figures are expensive, a game could easily be designed. What the heck! It could apply to any figs in the same scale. Gundams versus mechs and creatures from any anime.

What it really leaves is a will to make it happen and alot of play testing. Of course, some balanced game stats for the mechs from several shows. The figs are out there. Let me know what you think.

Gundam and Bandai is trademark Bandai Entertainment.
