Today November 26, Figure company MegaHouse held their MegaHobby Expo 2022 NEWDOT event in Akiba_Square, Tokyo, to exhibit their latest products. During the expo, they announced the new additions to their popular Gundam Girls Generation figure line, Lunamaria Hawke(Swimsuit Ver.), Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran.
At the event, the prototype figure for Lunamaria Hawke was displayed, without a price or release date.
Lunamaria Hawke is one of the major supporting characters in the 2004 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny series. As a member of ZAFT, boarding the main battleship LHM-BB01 Minerva, she pilots her own custom ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior.
SEED Destiny is the sequel to the 2002 Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series, with Mitsuo Fukuda and Chiaki Morosawa returning as director and head writer
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.
At MegaHobby Expo 2022, only a teaser announcement display was featured for the GGG Suletta Mercury and Miorine Rembran figures.
Suletta Mercury is the protagonist of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury TV anime, portrayed by Kana Ichinose. Suletta is described as second-year student in the piloting department, who transferred to the school from Mercury. Suletta is timid and somewhat lacks communication skills. She is the pilot of the Gundam Aerial developed on Mercury by the Shin Sei Development Corporation.
Miorine Remran is portrayed by voice actress Lynn and is described as an attractive and academically distinguished second-year student in the management strategy department. Miorine is the only daughter of Delling Rembran, the president of the Beneritt Group and chairman of the school’s board. She has a strong rebellious feeling towards her father.
Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury is directed by Kiznaiver‘s Hiroshi Koyabashi, and penned by Code Geass scribe, Ichiro Ohkouchi. The tagline of the series is “This witch…rides a Gundam”. The series began broadcast October 2, 2022 on twenty-eight of MBS and TBS TV networks on their 5pm “Nichigo” anime block, as well as simulcasted internationally. The Bandai Namco Group announced late September at their Gundam Conference Autumn 2022 that the Witch from Mercury‘s first cour broadcast will be completed in December and the series will resume with its second cour in April 2023.
