Initially announced in early February 2022, figure company MegaHouse has released additional images and product information for their upcoming B-STYLE: Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Meer Campbell Bunny ver. figure. The full painted figure was displayed at MegaHouse’s MegaHobby Expo 2022 NEWDOT event in November.
Meer Campbell is one of the major characters from the 2004 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny series. Meer is depicted as a doppelgänger of Lacus Clyne, established by PLANT chairman Gilbert Durandal to use Lacus’s influence and charisma as an idol for his own agenda.
This 1/4 scale figure is a fun spin on the ZAFT diva, depicting her dressed in a bunny-girl outfit, similar to the B-style: Mobile Suit Gundam SEED – Lacus Clyne Bunny Ver, released previously. The figure is priced at 44,000 yen with a September 2023 release date.
Directed by Mitsuo Fukuda and scripted by Chiaki Morosawa, SEED Destiny is the sequel to the popular 2002 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series. Hisashi Hirai returned as character designer, along with mechanical designs by Kunio Okawara and Kimitoshi Yamane, chief mecha animation direction by Satoshi Shigeta, and music by Toshihiko Sahashi.
The year is Cosmic Era 73. The Bloody Valentine War, fought between the PLANTS space colonies and the nations of the Atlantic Federation, has ended and an uneasy truce has settled upon the Earth sphere. With the signing of the Junius Seven Treaty, the world’s soldiers have left the battlefield and the grizzly sights of war behind. Many who fought now seek peace and refuge in the shelter of civilian life.
But one boy, Shinn Asuka, is finding that incredibly hard. A coordinator who lost his entire family during the Battle of Orb, he now fights with ZAFT in one of their newest machines, the Impulse Gundam. Of course, ZAFT is only developing these machines for defensive applications – or so they claim – but when a group of Federation operatives steal some of these prototype machines, the world is once again plunged towards war.
