The first standard-version Gundam Heavyarms kit in 20 years is here, from the hit series “Gundam Wing!” This is the first time Heavyarms’ original form — not a Custom or EW version — has gotten a kit all since the 1/144 scale no-grade kit released in 2000 (which was actually a repackage of a 1995 kit!).
Loaded up with guns and missiles, the Heavyarms is Trowa Barton’s mobile suit, made for long-range combat. This version of the kit takes full advantage of modern color separation and gimmicks to bring us a level of detail never before seen for this version of the Gundam, as it appears in the early part of the series.
To show you just how far we’ve come, we’ve also built that old model from 2000 for side-by-side comparisons!
Now, we’re just waiting for Deathscythe and Shenlong Gundams to join the lineup…
If any kits in this post are backordered when you read this, don’t worry — Bandai is great about restocking periodically. But, you’ll want to get your order in to secure a spot in line for the next restock!
