MODEROID REVEALS ISEKAI AND MAGIC ROBOTS – Before 2021 ended, Good Smile Company and its mecha sub-brand Good Mecha Smile have been promoting Mecha Smile Impact, an event which they promise would excite and bring impact to the mecha modeling world. They promised to reveal tons of upcoming model kits and figures from both the MODEROID and The Gattai lines. They had the video presentation of all reveals yesterday and, yep, it was very impactful with almost 40 new items across multiple series and franchises.
With that much new items, they decided to categorize each reveal so for the first batch, we have the isekai and magic robots category. These are kits from titles that involve isekai (i.e. another world) stories or robots that are magically powered. Please note that I will not cover everything they revealed and just those that I’m interested.
First up are the three upgraded forms of the protagonist machines form Mado King Granzort. These are Super Granzort, Super Aquabeat, and Super Winzert. I previously covered these three from a Megahouse’s Variable Action MINI line. But given that Good Smile Company already has their base forms as MODEROID kits, it would make total sense to have their upgrades as well. With the original kits slated to a reissue this June, I am expecting that these upgrades would be available around the same time as well.

Outside of Mashin Hero Wataru and its sort of sister series Mado King Granzort, there are also other magical-SD mecha series in the 80s. One of these is Lord of Lords: Ryu Knight which I’m not the most familiar compared to the previous two. But it also has interesting designs, including the Ryu Knight Zephyr, the main protagonist machine. The kit stands at 110mm but don’t the smaller stature fool you as the kit has great sculpted details coupled by great articulation as well.
