The Strike Freedom is a Mobile Suit in the series Gundam SEED Destiny.

First shown deployed in episode 39 (called PHASE 39 in the Anime), it is piloted by one of the main character of the series, Kira Yamato. Together with Strike Freedom, Kira Yamato, plays a pivotal role in ending the Second Bloody Valentine War, as part of Three Ships Alliance and Orb Union’s 2nd Space Fleet. Despite its designs bears striking similarity to its predecessor, ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam, this mobile suit can be easily distinguished in the anime by its golden joints across its white and black body, detachable wings, and its “trademark” capability to lock onto multiple units.

Prototype PG Strike Freedom

Bandai has just released pictures of a full prototype of the upcoming PG Strike Freedom designed by Katoki Hajime and Co. While the previous prototype did not display Strike Freedom’s signature wings which the whole Gunpla world has been going on about, this one finally has and it’s no let down. One look and the difference in the wings are obvious compared to the other versions of Strike Freedoms, well partly cause I’m a Strike Freedom fan. XD

The 3 most noticeable differences are,

1. The overall design – The current design for the wings follows Katoki Hajime’s “expose-more-frame” style which is great considering Strike Freedom has a gold frame. More good news, similar to MG Strike Freedom Full Burst Mode, this one will also have Extra Finish Gold Frame Parts on all exposed joints and frame. In order to prevent the gold parts from being scratched off by movements in the wings, there will be a special sliding mechanism for seamless change of the wings from Normal Mode to Full Burst Mode.

2. The proportions – Without me having to tell you, this is going to be the biggest PG so far and with such a dramatic wing span, you wonder how come you haven’t noticed it on a MG Strike Freedom yet. The truth is, length wise, I believe both the PG and MG wings are more or less the same length when scaled down. The key to it is the proportions, which as you can see, Katoki Hajime has taken the liberty to sharpen and reveal more frame to give it a more majestic look and feel. I must say I am impressed.

3. Wing gimmick? – This took me so time to notice. As you can see from the above picture, the PG Strike Freedom’s are currently in Full Burst Mode. On closer inspection, you’ll notice the gap is a little large and there seems to be a locking mechanism within the wings. My take? Wings of Light, definitely. But, for the price tag, I’m pretty sure the wings will not come bundled with the kit. More likely, it’ll be a special parts issue like every other PG launched so far. oh, the price if you ask?

25, 000  Yen (exclusive of tax)

Yup, it isn’t going to be a chap kit especially since it will be coming with 55 Runners, LED mechanism, spring (not sure if it is spring lock) mechanism and clear stickers. :D

Comparatively, PG RX-78-2 has 24 runners (including beam sabers)

While, PG Astray Red Frame has 36 runners (including beam sabers of 1 runner each and katana)

Not forgetting the most recently launched, 00 Raiser has 32 runners (inclusive of beam sabers and beam swords)

Future Gunpla Releases

I can’t even come up with a proper title to describe how much WIN Bandai is dropping on us this year. First off, here’s some tidbit to clear some things up- apparently Bandai is merging all their HG lines into one “HG Across the Universal Century” line (hence maybe that’s why you start seeing the series title on the box now too) so that’s how you get upcoming things like the HG 1/144 God Gundam, Gundam X, and ZZ Gundam. Guess Bandai finally realize that they have more Gundam series in their library than just UC, SEED and 00.

MG Shin Musha Gundam Mk. II…. based on Gundam MK-II 2.0’s frame! That means this thing will be even more poseable than Shin Musha’s OYW/1.5 frame! I wonder if it’ll be plated…

Wow… a MG Wing Gundam. Honestly, I never guessed this day would come! I should pick it up… and turn it into a Ver. Ka. Now wouldn’t that be one cruel joke? Here’s to hoping for a MG Wing Zero (Siroh will be thrilled…)

Kyrios’ shield? It seems like Bandai is just regularly whipping out new functions and forms for the TA out of nowhere. Maybe Lowe himself is behind the MG development of his own Gundam? Only explanation!

Now for the most shocking…

OMG GURREN LAGANN VER. KA! MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE! *checks calendar* It’s not April 1st either! Has Bandai finally kick reason to the curb?! This better not be some sort of “rumor” or anything like that. I can’t wait to see all those katoki warning decals on it ahah! instead of “CAUTION! BEWARE OF BLAST!” all over the place, it should say “DANGER! BEWARE OF DRILLS!”….. what is going on here? o_o
