EX Model 1/1700 Minerva [REISSUE]
Release Date: April 2024
Price: 4,400 Yen


In honor of the successful screening of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom film, the official Premium Bandai Hobby Site has announced the reissue of certain Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny of the EX Model kits. The kits announced in the lineup will also be available as regular retail kits, depending on area.

NOTE: This kit requires glue and paint

In the wide and elaborate tapestry of the "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny" anime, the LHM-BB01 Minerva battleship stands as a tribute to the creators' inventiveness and strategic acumen. This historic space vessel has been recreated in model form, allowing enthusiasts and collectors to experience its grandeur up close. The Minerva model kit gets the battleship's intimidating presence off the screen and into the hands of Gundam fans with a keen eye for detail and a passion for the franchise.

The Minerva model kit's attraction is centered on the detailed replication of the ship's principal armaments: the huge positron gun known as "Tannhäuser" and the M10 42 cm Triple Cannon "Isolde". These weapons are not static parts; the model allows for their deployment and storage via a sophisticated replacement system. This feature replicates the dynamic essence of the Minerva's combat powers, resulting in a more interactive and interesting assembly and display experience.

The Minerva model kit's designers focused on both the battleship's beauty and utilitarian qualities, particularly her unusual wings. The wings on the left and right sides of the hull may be opened and closed, giving visual appeal and mechanical intricacy to the model. This capability not only improves the model's display possibilities, but it also accurately depicts the Minerva's appearance as shown in "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny," accentuating its sleek profile and battle-ready posture.

The Minerva model kit's attraction is enhanced by the inclusion of three Gundam units of the same 1/1700 scale: Destiny Gundam, Legend Gundam, and Force Impulse Gundam. These new models allow fans to recreate anime sequences or construct their own scenarios, presenting the Minerva not only as a single vessel, but also as the flagship of a fearsome fleet. The inclusion of these Gundam units emphasizes the battleship's essential position in the "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny" story, resulting in a more full and immersive building experience.
