They’re back, baby! Like stubborn weeds, they just won’t die off! Daban is back out in circulation and they are making a follow up to their last Impulse release (before the Bandai purge) with their own version of the Sword Impulse.
This has been floating around since the 20th of June (2019) and with some prophetic vision, I mentioned in my previous Daban Blast Impulse post if they are going to refurbish the other Impulse kits. Apparently, somebody must have been reading my ramblings because we are now being teased with this!
This Daban version seems to be in the same style as the previous Blast Impulse they released, as of the writing of this article I have yet to find any definite release date, nor selling price. But we can expect this to be out within this year, or early next year (2020).
True to their stylized version, Daban went nuts with all those tacky 90s panel lines. But somehow, the revised Sword Impulse looks mighty purdy! It’s probably because it is in the same style sense as the “overpriced” Metal Build versions that Bandai is chucking out.
Here are more sample money shots of this upcoming bootleg kit.
In line with the spirit of new bootleg kit packagings, the upcoming bootleg MG Sword Impulse will come in an all-white box, with some identifications.
Bandai may update their aging Seed Destiny kits like the Seed kits, or maybe not. This stylized Impulse will go great with the Strike Freedom MB version on the shelf. I won’t hold my breath up just yet for this kit. Not till there is any further Infos.
