MegaHobby has released product information for the latest addition to their Realistic Model diorama series, the G-Structure[GS06] Heliopolis Battle Stage from the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series.
As the title suggests, the Heliopolis Stage Battle features a pre-painted, semi-assembled diorama kit of a battle-damaged section of the Heliopolis space colony, as seen in PHASE-02 “Its Name: Gundam” of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED anime. The diorama is perfect to be paired with an 1/144 scale ZGMF-1017 GINN and GAT-X105 Strike Gundam, to recreate the battle between protagonist Kira Yamato and ZAFT’s Miguel Aiman, or any mobile suits from the SEED series.
