The last time Gundam fans and GunPla modelers had to wait for a new (non-P-Bandai) Perfect Grade 1/60 (PG) GunPla was almost four whole years, as the wait for a new PG between PG 1/60 Strike Freedom Gundam and PG 1/60 Unicorn Gundam went from December 2010 until December 2014.
However, fans can now relax as it seems they don’t even have to wait a full year to see a new PG as Bandai has announced their latest PG addition, the Gundam Unicorn Banshee Norn from Mobile Suit Gundam UC
Like the PG 1/60 Unicorn Gundam, “Unit 02”, or the Banshee, can be transformed from its “Unicorn Mode” to its “Destroy Mode”. According to Gundam.info, this upcoming PG GunPla is scheduled for release this September, less than a year after the PG Unicorn was released, which of course is a shorter wait as compared to the four-year hiatus the PG line had.
Bandai will be revealing this new GunPla’s prototype during the Gundam EXPO Hong Kong 2015 this 24 – 28 July. It will also be featured during the Gundam EXPO’s Korea leg from 20 – 28 August as well as the C3 X Hobby Expo from 22 – 23 August 2015. Further details such as height, weight, boxart, price, and whether this new kit will come with its own LED lights will be announced in the future
