HGCE 1/144 Lightning Buster Gundam 
Release Date: September 2024
Price: 2,860 Yen

The Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom universe is expanding, bringing with it the advent of a new and formidable player in the GunPla world: the Lightning Buster Gundam. This latest addition to the High Grade Cosmic Era (HGCE) model lineup is not just any ordinary release; it stands out with its completely new molded parts, setting a new benchmark for GunPla enthusiasts around the globe.

The Lightning Buster Gundam is a ground-breaking development of the classic Buster Gundam. This updated marvel now uses a nuclear reactor, providing incredible power and durability on the battlefield. The makeover does not end with the power source; the cockpit has undergone major remodeling and now resembles that of a ZAKU Warrior. This modification not only improves its operational capabilities, but also pays tribute to one of the most legendary mobile suits in the Gundam universe.

True to its history, the Lightning Buster Gundam is armed with a variety of long-range weapons, making it a dangerous foe in any battle. Its weaponry includes missiles, beam cannons, and beam guns, which allow it to inflict devastating hits from a distance. Its capacity to lay down a devastatingly effective blanket of fire makes it an invaluable weapon in any strategic battle plan.

One of the Lightning Buster Gundam's distinguishing features is its internal structure, known as the "SEED Action System." This innovative framework is specifically designed to replicate the dynamic and memorable action poses associated with the "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Series." This level of articulation and flexibility ensures that collectors and fans can recreate their favorite scenes with accuracy and vitality, bringing the Lightning Buster Gundam to life.

The Lightning Buster Gundam's mobility is further boosted by its unique hip joint design. The connecting shafts on the left and right legs are distinct and adjustable, allowing for bold and dynamic positions. This function works particularly well with action poses, allowing fans to showcase the Gundam in a number of dramatic and combat-ready attitudes.

The model has elaborate details such as a waist-mounted beam gun that can be presented in deployed mode owing to barrel replacement parts. Furthermore, the huge cannon may be unfolded from its storage position, with moveable arm sections allowing it to be positioned over the shoulder and waist, ready for battle. This level of detail not only improves the model's visual appeal, but also increases its playability and exhibition possibilities.

The Lightning Buster Gundam has the unique ability to expose the stored missile warhead by opening and closing the hatch on the back of the aircraft. This feature enhances the model's realism and tactical depth by representing the Gundam's strategic capabilities within the story of the "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Series."

The thorough attention to detail is visible in the color coding of the entire body, which is accomplished by the partitioning of components. This level of design detail ensures that the model not only looks great, but also accurately represents the aesthetics of the Lightning Buster Gundam from the movie.

Compatible with the METEOR Unit

In a tribute to the Duel Blitz's versatility and adaptability, the Lightning Buster Gundam is designed to be compatible with the METEOR unit, which is an important selling feature for strategists and collectors. The METEOR unit, which is marketed separately, is a monster in terms of mobile weapon platforms. Its powerful thrusters allow it to effortlessly transport the Lightning Buster into the heart of battle or away from danger.

The METEOR unit's arsenal is nothing short of impressive. It has battleship-caliber beam cannons, massive beam swords, and a large number of heavy missile launchers. This combination of speed, strength, and weaponry allows the Lightning Buster Gundam to wreak unprecedented carnage on its adversaries when docked with the METEOR unit, dominating the battlefield with sheer firepower.
