  2. Goddamnit, while I expected this to be P-Bandai, it doesn't make it any better to hear that it's confirmed. Looks like i'll be going to the MG for my GM Sniper kit.

  3. This doesn't feel like it needs to be p-Bandai.

    1. Agreed. I'm still buying it to replace my old 1/144 08th GM Sniper. Kinda funny how both [G] beam sniper rifles (White Dingo and now this kit) are P-Bandai exclusives...

  6. Anyone else noticed that they swapped the coloration of the sniper rifle? The prototype shows the "middle" being grey with the butt and barrel being green (just like the White Dingo GM Sniper II's rifle)- whereas the new images show the middle being green with grey barrel and butt... (pardon me if I got that part of the rifle wrong)

    1. Sorry to reply to myself, but turns out that this color scheme is anime accurate! I call myself a GM fan and I never noticed that!

  7. I am not surprised this is a Premium Bandai release. This is a variation of the GM Ground Type. So obviously Bandai would make this Premium Bandai. So I think they will make 2 more Premium Bandai HG kits for Blue Destiny Unit 0 and GM Early Type.

    1. People are surprised because both old HG 1/144 and MG of this MS were regular releases.

    2. And its not like we haven't seen recolors before... the Rick Dias, Hizack, GM Command, Dom Tropen, Rick Dom II, Gera Doga, Qubeley, Bawoo, Zaku F2, Nemo, and F91 all have multiple releases in the HGUC line- just to name some off the top of my head.
