|Everyone totally called on this one. Using the new mold of the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth released a few months ago, Bandai (predictably) is releasing the Crossbone Gundam X3 as well.
For those unfamiliar with the fiction, the Crossbone Gundam X3 is the same mobile suit that got upgraded into the Crossbone Gundam X1 Full Cloth after it was damaged beyond repair. So technically speaking, this is a lead Gundam — a must have for the CATALOGUE.
Guess Bandai is differentiating this from the first release with the lack of dash between "X" and "3"?
|Tamashii Nations made a slew of announcements today, one of which is the Gundam Mk-II which will also grace the ROBOT Damashii line following the earlier announced Zeta Gundam.
And it would seem that the designers took some liberties on this rendition, most notably on the proportions. If anything, the figure is quite stylized and has a silhouette veering towards those of super robots. This gives collectors more differentiation in choosing between this release and the available Gunpla of this mobile suit.
Once Bandai releases the Hyaku Shiki, the Gundam Team will be finally complete!
