New Gundam for Gundam 30th Anniversary EDITED

EDITED: Added one new image and more information.

New Gundam project for Gundam 30th Anniversary: RX-78-7 7th Gundam, redesigned by Hajime Katoki-sensei, from the original one done by Kunio Okawara-sensei in MS Collection.

Animation? manga? photographic novel? product series?

I believe some may be disappointed that it's not Gundam Unicorn to be selected as the focus project. ^^;

New information from SRW Hotnews:

Mechanic Design: Katoki Hajime
Character Design: Suzuki Tatsuya
