From “Mobile Suit Gundam 00,” Gundam Dynames appears in METAL BUILD. The set also includes a “GN Devise Backpack” that can be converted into the “Gundam Devise Dynames” that appears in “Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Revealed Chronicle” by attaching it to the back, and is currently available for pre-order on “Tamashii Web Store” within Premium Bandai.
“Mobile Suit Gundam 00” was directed by Mizushima Seiji and written by Kuroda Yosuke, and the character design team includes popular manga artist Kouga Yun and animator Chiba Michinori. The series became popular for its bold mechanical designs, including Gundam Exia and other aircraft with novel forms never seen before.
In 2018, a commemorative event was held to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its broadcast. Two stages of the series have also been screened and have gained support from a wide range of fans.
Now, on the 15th anniversary of the broadcast of “Mobile Suit Gundam 00,” the “Gundam Dynames” has appeared in METAL BUILD, with the body and each weapon sculpted under the supervision of the original designer, Yanase Takayuki.
“GN Sniper Rifle,” a long-range sniper rifle designed exclusively for the Gundam Dynames, can be mounted on the shoulder. “GN Full Shield” has a left and right shield that can be deployed to the front to cover the entire body, and the original movement mechanism of the METAL BUILD allows a new silhouette to be expressed when shooting.
In addition, “GN Beam Pistol” can be mounted behind the shield, and “GN Missile” can also be seen mounted when the covers on both knees are opened.
In addition, the included GN Devise Backpack can be attached to the back of the machine to convert it into “Gundam Devise Dynames” from “Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Revealed Chronicle.”
“GN Devise Backpack” can be attached to not only the Gundam Dynames, but also “METAL BUILD Gundam Exia” and other GN drive-compatible machines in the Dynames line, and the backpack itself can be fitted with various parts, including armaments sold separately, to enjoy recreating various forms.
“METAL BUILD Gundam Dynames & Devise Dynames” is priced at 28,600 JPY (tax included). It is available for pre-orders on “Tamashii Web Store” within Premium Bandai until the number of pre-orders is reached, and the product is scheduled to be shipped in May 2023.
