While the Gundam Breaker Battlogue anime is slated to drop this October, the actual kits are slated for November the earliest. But to the surprise of many, mainly those from the US, the kits are starting to show up as Target exclusives a month or so ahead of its Japanese (and the rest of the world) release. Reviews have also started to appear, giving us a first impression of these kits. You could search for them online, but what I’ll focus here are the box arts, because why not.
I also won’t talk about each kit since I’ve already given my unsolicited thoughts on a previous post — you check those out here.
To those unfamiliar with the Gundam Breaker Mobile storyline, the Gundam Helios is the third version of the mobile suit used by the game’s previously unnamed protagonist, now a named character: Ryusei Fudo. The previous mobile suits he used are the Gundam Artemis and Gundam Areus. I’m hoping Bandai Spirits would revisit those designs and make kits out of them because these three would definitely look good together.

November 2021 / ¥2,300
Another design that’s starting to grow on me is the Blazing Gundam which I assume would also be a main lead along with the Gundam Helios if we’re using the key visual for reference. Given its focus melee combat, and its red color scheme, I think this kit should go pretty well with the Build Burning Gundam lineage of kits.

Unpopular opinion, I’m still not a fan of this design despite most people gushing over it. Too edgy for me I suppose.
