Metal Structure "1/60" RX-178 Gundam Mk- II AEUG - Planning Stage

The current Tamashii Nation 2023 event has released another gigantic Metal Structure (Kaitai-Shou-ki) figure of the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II from the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam series. 

Tamashii Japan has yet to reveal additional information about the latest addition to the enormous high quality figure line in the near future. The prototype on display did not provide a release date or price for the next item.

The presentation, like the previously produced figures of the same brand, includes a mechanical hangar base that houses some of its components. It also includes figures of engineers and Kamille Bidan, the Gundam Mk-II pilot.

Metal Structure (Kaitai-Shou-Ki) is Bandai's official line of actual robot high quality action figures. The line consists of mecha figurines with significantly more parts and greater details than any prior Bandai offering, but with extremely limited movability. While the Gundams are non-scale, they are about the same height as their 1/60 scale Gunpla counterparts.

The following images are from Dengeki Hobby web.

The Gundam Mk-II, a direct successor of the Titans' RX-78-2 Gundam, is the first mobile suit to use the revolutionary moveable frame technology. In this new concept, the movable frame integrates all of the mobile suit's key machinery, including the actuators and control systems required for movement, but excluding the mobile suit's weaponry, armor, and propellant tanks. This method significantly enhances the mobile suit's reactivity, dependability, and energy efficiency, while also making it far more nimble than older designs.

  1. This is just a proof that the Gundam franchise grows with the fans. Fans gets older and no more time to build. Some make more money especially those people who live in Japan and people who live in other Asian countries who can afford these kind of figures.

    Also probably because Japan is restricting more of plastic production and such. We get fewer gunpla announcements every year. We just get reissues from p-bandai and other restocks of older gundam models.

    It's sad that I am not one of those people who can afford this kind of thing. I love modeling. I love Gundam and I miss the days when the used to announce at least 6 kits a month.
