Several months ago, Toy Wizards announced the new Gundam Universe series of action figures (non-model kit toys) coming from Bandai/Tamashii Nations. Today, they are ready for preorder, with a very reasonable MSRP of $21-$24, depending on where you scoop them up from. They are 17cm tall, which is in the 7″ range.
All three will be released in October, 2019. Leading the first wave of them out are the:
RX-0 UNICORN GUNDAM 02 BANSHEE (MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM UNICORN)
XXXG-01D GUNDAM DEATHSCYTHE (MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM WING)
SW-G-08 GUNDAM BARBATOS (MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM: IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS)
I am so excited for these figures in the very reasonable price range. It allows for casual Gundam fans and collectors who just want a little bit of shelf candy to be able to indulge in some Mecha Love. This kick off wave from Gundam Universe is a pretty good lineup!
But if that Deathsythe could come with some hell-wing add on, that’d be awesome, please and thank you.
