At the Shizuoka Hobby Show that was held last May 11~14 (2017) an interesting new version of the Wing Zero was put on display. First news about this upcoming kit was mentioned in Winter 2016 in Akihabara with a teaser poster marked “Now Planning”.
The full kit was put on display at Shizouka Hobby Show. The 1/100 High Resolution Model Wing Zero Gundam to be out this September for 12,960 JPY (approx. 114 USD).
And it can do something that all older versions of the EW Wing Zero kits can’t do, TRANSFORM! The new HRM Wing Zero literally has a Bird Mode with feathery designed wings this time! I always wondered why the Wing Zero in the OVA series was not transformable, it seems Bandai corrected that old problem with this kit.
Of course, the HRM line is well known for its highly articulated and highly detailed inner frame.
The new Wing Zero kit comes with all you see below:
The 1/100 HRM kit comes with the iconic Twin buster Rifle, 2x Beam Swords and a shield.

The quota of having a GW release for this year is achieved with this upcoming kit. On another note, it is also about time we should be getting an announcement for another P-bandai exclusive for the Sandrock Custom, I just hope this release won’t upset that.
