In the wake of the surprise from the upcoming Mercurius release, we are treated to another surprise.
If this was Bandai, we will have to wait for a whole year to get another upcoming release of a GW MS kit, this time it’s the FRIKIN’ 1/100 Vayeate!
Unlike its twin unit, the Mercurius, this guy is all brute force. Force, by means of massive beam discharges from its over sized beam cannon, the Vayeate is designed for ranged combat and was piloted by the crack-shot of the five Gundam pilots, Trowa Barton. Since it doesn’t have any major defensive capabilities, it is vulnerable all on its own that’s why it’s paired with the Mercurius as its bodyguard. the Vayeate was also later converted into a mobile doll programmed with Trowa’s combat data. With the impregnable defense of the Mercurius and the devastating offense of the Vayeate, no MS pilot is crazy enough to get on their crosshairs, except for Duo, that guy is nuts!
The twin units share the same body design with the exception of the head design and armaments, so they share the same articulation.
Truly, both the Mercurius and Vayeate are complimentary units. I would love to have these guys on my shelf. Just look at that!
Here are more pics to ogle at the goodness of the Vayeate.
