Outside a couple of titles (i.e. Gundam Thunderbolt, Gundam W Dual Story G-UNIT), Bandai doesn’t really produce Gunpla from graphic novels and non-animated productions. As such, it’s often left to resin/garage kit groups to release stuff from these niche titles. Such is the case of this 1/144 Striker Custom from Mobile Suit Gundam Katana. It appears to be a full on kit rather than a conversion for the existing HGUC GM Striker, though one could simply repaint the GM Striker and get the head/backpack units from this guy. Hoping that some third-party companies releases this as a plastic kit.
