P-Bandai: RG 1/144 Gundam Astray Gold Frame
Release Date: August 2016
Price: 3,024 Yen

From the manga series Gundam SEED Astray, and graphic novel Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray B, comes the Gundam Astray Gold Frame piloted by Rondo Gina Sahaku! 


One of the first variants of the Gundam Astray Red Frame gets a Real Grade treatment! This kit comes with entirely new molded parts for its 350mm "Gáe Bulg" rail bazooka, a weapon that was originally meant for Duel Gundam. - That being said, the Gold Frame's capacity could not handle such weapon that its right arm had short circuited in battle right after using it - Bandai Spirits has also included a broken arm piece that reflects the small detail.




Short history via wiki.

"On January 25, CE 71, ZAFT's attack on Heliopolis to steal the Alliance Gundams also unknowingly interrupted the Astray project. In order to hide their progress, Orb's officials decided to destroy the Astray lab. CoordinatorRondo Gina Sahaku, an Orb nobleman, disagreed and attempted to save the three suits, Gold Frame, Red Frame and Blue Frame, that were assembled. Gina originally wanted all the Astray data to be uploaded on Gold Frame, but the data was too much, forcing him to order the splitting of the data across the three suits. He then commandeered the Gold Frame and used a rail bazooka left behind by the stolen GAT-X102 Duel to blow a hole in Heliopolis so that Gold Frame could escape. Unfortunately, Gold Frame's right arm short-circulated soon after using the bazooka; there was no time to test Gold Frame at that time. To prevent the problem from affecting the whole MS, he discarded the damaged arm (but kept the bazooka), and escaped the dying colony. Afterwards, he piloted the Gold Frame (still missing an arm) in a battle with Red Frame and its pilot Lowe Guele, which resulted in the destruction of Gold Frame's head by an energy sphere produced from Red Frames arm. Gold Frame was then taken to Orb's main island, where Morgenroete upgraded it to the MBF-P01-ReAMATU Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu.

  1. Does anyone know what exactly changes when they reissue certain kits? I can't really tell, unless it's just the price

    2. probably no difference other then the logo turning from red to blue for the Bandai logo on the bottom right corner of the box

  2. There are no changes to the kit itself, being P-Bandai they're originally limited production runs/releases, so eventually they run out. Down the line, like in this example, they "reissue" them AKA make another production run of the kit so people can have another chance to procure a copy for themselves.
