BLOG: Box Art Extravaganza Sechszehn
|It’s all about Gundam Build Fighters GM’S COUNTERATTACK for this batch of box arts as the broadcast of the special draws closer.
First is what many assume would eventually be the Build Burning Gundam — the Star Burning Gundam. It’s not yet a full melee Gundam like its successor and so it comes with the standard fare of weapons, including a beam rifle, shield and beam sabers. That said, it does come with multiple manipulators for close combat stances.
This Gunpla was supposedly built after the Build Strike Gundam Cosmos so it’s interesting to see what happened and led Sei Iori to build this one.
|Next up is Nils Nielsen’s follow up to the Sengoku Astray Gundam, because he a total fan of Japanese motifs. Basing off a ninja and using the Force Impulse base body is the Ninpulse Gundam. As of this posting, the kit has actually been released and initial reviews have been mostly positive.
Most notable for this kit is the ‘Tenku Jujiken’ (Heaven’s Cross Sword) which is a multi-purpose accessory that acts both as the mobile suit’s main flight back, it’s signature weapon, and a forward shield.
This is also reminding this collector that the HGCE Force Impulse Gundam is a year old and must be built already.
|Lastly of this triage of GM’S COUNTERATTACK kits is probably the reason why the special was titled as such. Not sure if they’ll be the antagonistic figures of the story but heck the kit looks great and a GM collector’s dream.
To the unfamiliar, it’s a modern redesign of the classic GM and includes three head units from the various variation of the GM head design. This is the perfect army-building kit due to its simplicity and variation possibilities.
Gundam Build Fighters GM’S COUNTERATTACK will be available for streaming on August 25.
