MG Force Impulse Gundam Box Art & Others

Box art of MG Force Impulse Gundam spotted on!

I always thought that Bandai is going to use the famous scene of Impulse skewing Freedom as the box art of this MG, but it seems that they wanted Force Impulse to take the center stage (completely) this time. ^^

Check out the images of the actual MG itself in this previous posting.

Updated images of other Gunplas as also up.

HGUC Zaku II FZ - May release, 1,260 Yen (inclusive of tax)

It's great to see that the one of the final scenes from the duel between Zaku II FZ and Gundam NT-1 in UC0080: War in a Pocket is selected to be the box art.

Sergei's unit - not the last grunt unit to come from the series I believe, even though Gundam Double O is long finished by now.

Looks good... looks really good... ...
"Must not buy until confirmation about Graham's unit... must not buy until..." I'll have to repetitiously tell myself that XD

Before moving onto the SD models, Gundamaniac posted several magazine scans of upcoming 1/100 Gundam Double O kits, including the highly anticipated Astraea Type F:

Plasma sword compartment in Overflag's forearm, and it seems that the special rifle can be mounted on its hip.
Astraea Type F's weapons are completely the same as Astraea, and it comes with the V fin and front skirt armors from Exia, and a special mask to hide its face.

1/100 Tieren comes with figure of the same scale too! And looking at its size, I kind-of suspect that this big guy will be bigger than MG Zaku II...

His weapons can be used by Kakouton Giros as well, and you can hardly tell the difference ^^

Also, the fine folks on Toysdaily posted some images of the Beam Gatling set from Gundam UC Vol. 4:

Total heartache for those who can't get hold of the novel :(

The construction manual looks like it's some missing pages from the actual MG ^^;
