The long-awaited Gundam Burnlapius model has been officially announced for release by Premium Bandai. This announcement has stirred excitement in the Gundam community, particularly among fans of the manga New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Dual Story: G-Unit. The Gundam Burnlapius, also known as the Prometheus Gundam in the Tokyopop (Eng) version of the manga, has a special place in the hearts of fans.


The OZ-10VMSX-2 Gundam Burnlapius, piloted by Kratz Silvy, is a mobile suit that first appears in the manga New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Dual Story: G-Unit. It is based on the OZ-10VMSX Gundam Aesculapius and is intended as a heavy assault mobile suit with distinct characteristics, including the ability to convert into a more fearsome "duel mode" for close combat situations.

The design of the Gundam Burnlapius kit will follow the aesthetic and technical specifications seen in the New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Dual Story G-Unit Re: Operation series of GunPla model kits.

Armament Details
The Gundam Burnlapius is equipped with an array of powerful weapons, including:

Assault Bayonet: A formidable sword attached over the right arm, designed for melee attacks.

Rapid Shot: Located near the hilt of the blade, these rapid-fire beam guns provide the Burnlapius with a quick shooting capability.

Golem Claw: In its duel mode, the Burnlapius can extend these claws from its arms for medium-range combat, adding to its versatility.

EMF Shield: Mounted on the left arm, this shield emits a magnetic anti-field capable of blocking both projectile and beam shots, providing an essential defensive capability.

Release Date: July 2024
Price: 8,910 Yen 

The most recent addition to this cherished universe is a trio of mobile suits called "Garnet," "Sapphire," and "Spinel." These cutting-edge mobile suits are part of the Black Knight Squad Rud-ro.A, which represents the strength of the developing nation Foundation Kingdom.

Redelard Tradoll, renowned for his tactical intelligence and combat precision, pilots the "Garnet" with proficiency. "Sapphire" is piloted by Daniel Harper, whose aggressive tactics and boldness make him a tough opponent. Finally, the "Spinel" is piloted by Liu Shenqiang, known for his speed and stealth.


NAME ORIGIN
Rud-ro.A is named after the Hindu deity Rudra, which represents the deity's aggressive and destructive character. Rudra is associated with storms and violence, whereas Rud-ro.A represents great might on the battlefield. This approach emphasizes the mobile suit's function as a harbinger of devastation, echoing Rudra's stormy and awe-inspiring characteristics and complementing nicely with the film's themes of technology and human emotions in conflict.

Each of these mobile suits is outfitted with the groundbreaking "SEED Action System". This improved framework improves the suits' agility, allowing them to duplicate the classic stances seen in the "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom" film. The approach stresses dynamic movement while also ensuring that each suit performs well in warfare conditions.

Each suit's specific identity is reflected through its distinct color schemes, which are created utilizing intricate molded colors. This method not only emphasizes the unique personality of each mobile suit, but it also improves the visual experience for builders.

The armaments on these mobile suits are as stunning as their design. Each suit is outfitted with an anti-mobile suit heavy sword, shield, and high-energy beam rifle, guaranteeing that they are prepared for any combat scenario. Furthermore, each mobile suit includes a set of foil stickers that are specifically designed to complement its look, providing an extra degree of customization.

The "SEED Action System" of the kit enables these mobile suits to recreate some of the film's most memorable action postures. This feature is an important tribute to the series' fans, who value the attention to detail and adherence to the original content.

With these additional improvements, "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED FREEDOM" not only broadens its universe but also establishes a new standard for mobile suit design and functioning.
