Bandai Namco’s hobby business subsidiary Bandai Spirits, has announced the release of the Gundam Deathscythe Hell appearing in the High Grade After Colony line of Gundam model kits.
Designed by legendary mechanical designer Kunio Okawara, XXXG-01D2 Gundam Deathscythe Hell is the rebuilt, upgraded version of the signature mobile suit piloted by Duo Maxwell in the 1995 New Mobile Report Gundam Wing series.
Directed by Masashi Ikeda and Shinji Takamatsu, New Mobile Report Gundam Wing or Mobile Suit Gundam Wing is the second major Gundam entry not set within the franchise’s long running Universal Century timeline. The series featured character designs by Ergo Proxy and Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash director Shukou Murase, and a mechanical design team consisting of Kunio Okawara, Hajime Katoki, and Junya Ishigaki.
Mankind has moved into space. Thousands of people live on giant orbiting space colonies called “Sides.” However, the Earth Government, which rules the colonies, is unjust and cruel. A group of revolutionaries build five robotic weapons called Gundams and plan to send them to Earth to begin their fight for independence. Piloted by five young men, these Gundams carry the colonists’ hopes and dreams of freedom with them as they descend to Earth to begin Operation Meteor!
