FG Gundam O

Still remember GN-000 Gundam O? It's the mysterious Gundam appeared in the first episode of Gundam Double O, the one seen by Setsuna when he was still a kid in his war torn homeland.

Bearing so many zeroes in its designation code, I wonder if this is the very first Gundam deployed by the Celestial Beings. Nonetheless, the most interesting point about Gundam O is the many similarities with Gundam RX-78-2 ^^

'Dissecting' ^^ the components of Gundam O.

The mechanical design of Gundam O. The designer is Kunio Okawara, who is also the designer for RX-78-2.

Anyway, the main reason discussing Gundam O in this posting is this:

FG Gundam O coming soon!

Yes folks, it seems that there’s plan for the release of FG Gundam O, but so far there's no information about its release date or price yet. Being illiterate in Japanese, I can't make out what the description in the picture says. But I'm guessing that this FG will come out as a special/limited release rather than to be 'mass-produced' ^^; not sure if fans outside Japan will have a chance to get hold of this model.

Stay tuned for more information!
