GFFMC Wing Gundam Snow White Prelude - Release Info

Gundam Fix Figuration Metal Composite [GFFMC] Wing Gundam Snow White Prelude
Release Date: May 2020
Price: 29,700 Yen

Tamashii Nations announces the first batch of pre-order for the Wing Gundam Snow White Prelude will be starting from November 21, 2019 at 16:00 JST.

The figure's release also marks the 25th anniversary of the Gundam Wing franchise, from the first TV release back in April 1995 to its latest "Frozen Teardrop" manga serializations. Katoki Hajime's redesign of the Wing Gundam Snow White "Prelude" version pays respect to its original Wing Gundam Zero EW design with additional wings called Seraphim binders.



Each new Seraphim binders are also holstered with new "Neue Zwerg" buster equipment, that can also be installed on its Twin Buster Rifle for extra fire-power. The unit itself also has a Neo Bird mode in which the new Seraphim Binders acts as flight wings instead of the original binders which are folded underneath the unit.

  • Twin Buster Rifle
  • Beam Saber x 2
  • Neue Zwerg x 6

  1. "Plans for releasing its upgraded versions are also in its process. Information about the new design will be slated ones finalized."

    Literally advertising "this isn't even my final form." The original release it spectacular, the Seraphim Units look like a really interesting gimmick, but it's hard to bite when you know the next version is the actual one we have been waiting for and will likely be even MORE expensive.

    1. Not even trying to hide that it is a cash grab.

    2. The next one will probably be the Wing Gundam Snow White epilogue "Lucifer Unit" using the Proto wing zero if they were to follow the naming scheme of the side story of Tiel's Impulse, or give the Lucifer title to either a new Epyon variant or a new Death Scythe variant with new gear and gimmicks.

  2. Even using the insert art to advertise this. This is the Canon Snow White according to this...

    I was looking forward to this but this is just a cash grab. Makes me mad that it is by $200 compared to the Wing Zero GFFMC. This release having even more with it.

    1. I hate it as I waited half a decade to see this design and it isn't even the real thing. My criticism of it is entirely fair. The Wing Zero GFFMC cost $200 more than this, yet this release is cheaper yet has more to it. The only thing new to this release compared to Wing Zero is a new paint job and the Seraphim Wings. The Zwergs just have minor retools.

      I think it is fair to call out something like this for what it is. As they even said they will release "upgraded" versions of this down the line. Fans of Snow White are wanting those releases as that is the Snow White we have read about. Frozen Teardrop is disappointing enough with how weird and crazy it got. The designs are really the only thing it has going for it as they were hidden, thus hyping them up.

      But to make this short, I'd have been fine with this release if the wings and weapons were different. As that has been the design theme so far, same body but different wings and weapons. Snow White is supposed to use a crossbow type of rifle that uses 7 cartridges that each have different effects. The wings I can't honestly say what they looked like as the cover is just a fill in art. But those wings were floating separate pieces and obviously different from Wing Zero's wings.

      Sorry for the long response, but I wanted to get it all down as I don't plan to respond to the next thing you said as I aired my reasons enough, and what you say won't change my mind.
