HGAC 1/144 Gundam Sandrock - Release Info, Box Art and Official Images

HGAC 1/144 Gundam Sandrock
Release Date: September 2019
Price: 1,500 Yen

The Gundam Sandrock that appeared from the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and is piloted by Quatre Raberba Winner has finally joined the High Grade model kit series! The kit is provided with great range of color separation and articulation that meets the standards of today's GunPla.

It is packed with two types of heat shotels, one activated (clear red) and one deactivated (solid gray). The hilts of the shotels can be attached to its backpack unit and it can be transferred to its arms and act as another set of weapon for the Gundam Sandrock.


Official Box art for the second batch production.
*The first batch production of the kit comes with a code that can be redeemed in the Gundam Breaker mobile game in Japan. First run is only a limited release and has a special text in the box art that indicates that it contains the code for the game.

[ACCESSORIES]
  • Heat Shotel x 2
  • Shield
  • Backpack

  1. Sandrock TV version! I hope that means we'll be getting the other Gundams! I know that they have the mold for the Shenlong/Altron due to the Build Divers kit, but MAN I would kill for a proper Heavyarms!

    More Wing love!

    1. The Gundam Jiyan Altron kit is actually a modified HGAC Wing Gundam. You can see many reviews that the leftovers parts are from the Wing kit, most notably the beam rifle and the calf thrusters. I also expected the Altron will be coming based on the Jiyan Altron design, but I was wrong... The Maganac and Sandrock release caught me by surprise, a pleasant surprise. The HGAC Wing Gundam Zero truly benefits from Bandai engineers years of experience, would love to see all the main Gundam remade, and it's just nice to have Wing series getting much deserved love.

  2. HGAC is cool and all, but we all really want MG Anime kits to go with the MG EW kits.

    1. All the yes!!!
      I want the TV designs hat we all grew up with not the ones from some manga nobody reads.
      The movie/OVA designs are fine though.

  5. I was hoping for RG Sandrock EW instead to be honest.

  6. So the Sandrock is coming out right after the Maganac!!?
    The Sandrock is special to mas as the old HG EW kit was my first ever model and the TV version was one of the first two Gundam i knew about due to my brother getting the MSIA Sandrock (TV) & Heavyarms Custom EW for his birthday.

    1. Same. I know the RG Tallgeese is a thing, but I'd also like a less expensive kit without all of the RG's complexity.

      Also hope it comes with the TV version color scheme, not really fond of the EW color scheme they introduced.

    2. The Tallgeese could be an easy remold of the Leo since it's canon that they share parts.
      Just need a new head aswell as shoulders for the thruster pods and Dobergun.

  8. Honestly expected Shenlong before this but hey I ain't complaining!

    Deathscythe and Heavyarms when?

  9. I prefer the EW versions and it would be nice to see Bandai doing more of the Real Grade EW versions and make the High Grade EW versions too. But maybe Bandai will make both anime version and EW version?

  10. I don't even like Sandrock and I still think this kit is long overdue. The prototypes they showed looked good.

  11. I hope they complete the tv versions and their upgrades.looking forward to the heavy arms and heavyarms kai. Then maybe the full HGAW lineup while theyre at it.😅😅😅

  12. I hope this bandai people release a HG Epyon and a Heavyarms kai

  13. This is nice and all but in all honestly was excepting altron next and are we all forgetting G-unit here? they just announced to do some new manga episodes for it.does that mean we'll finally get some updated kits like the bad ass that is the hydra gundam and not pay 50 to 100 bucks for an old no grade kit that no one seems to be able to get restocked even though gundam base has plenty of every gundam kit released in it's store

  14. Just give me all the HGAC gundams (including epyon) so i could die in peace.

  15. Is Bandai making HG version the TV version and RG version the EW version?

  16. Oooh~ Interesting frame shots....and angled gripping hands, very nifty

  17. Kinda sad they don't have the beam submachinegun here, but then again canonically that was only introduced with the Kai upgrade. I'm hoping that means they'll introduce a Sandrock Kai version down the line, since they already have a mounting point for the beam SMG at the back.

    1. Should've been released as a Kai version, I suppose.

  18. Why wouldn't they give us the beam SMG? What a bummer. Such a wierd decision, Bandai.

    1. AFAIK the beam submachinegun was only used by sandrock kai. The space use upgrade of sandrock
