|After being revealed in last month’s Gunpla Expo World Tour 2013 Japan, Bandai has released several colored prototype shots of the upcoming HGAC Wing Gundam Zero. This is probably the same kit that appeared in that show so it isn’t really something new.
What’s new however is that these shots also show Wing Zero in its Neo Bird Mode. From the get go, people immediately noticed one thing — those obvious hinges on the wing binders — as spoiled by the smaller ones of the ROBOT Damashii and the more recent Proto Zero Master Grade kit. Also of note is how the feet will tuck into the leg units from the transformation. The Proto Zero went with a much simpler transformation so until the kit comes out, it’s all just speculation.
|In episode 6 of Gundam Build Fighters, the Build Strike Gundam Full Package was completely trashed after battling against Tatsuya Yuuki’s Zaku Amazing. And when the lead Gundam of a series is destroyed, the mid-season upgrade makes an entrance.
As seen in this year’s Gunpla Expo, that upgrade comes in the form of the mouthful Star Build Strike Gundam Plavsky Wing. Noticeable changes in the Build Strike Gundam include the torso, legs and shield. What’s completely different is the new Universal Booster which manipulates Plavsky Particles to generate a feathered wing-like appearance.
