Bandai Namco’s hobby business subsidiary, Bandai Spirits has announced the Premium Bandai release of the Crossbone Gundam X-1 “Patchwork” Ver.Ka for the Master Grade line of Gundam model kits.
Repaired from the XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai Kai “Skull Heart” using spare parts of the XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X-3, the XM-X1C Crossbone Gundam X-1 “Patchwork” is featured in the Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Steel 7 manga, piloted by Tobia Arronax.
Designed by renowned mechanical designer Hajime Katoki, the model kit features the distinctive colors and shape of the Crossbone Gundams X1 and X3, from which the name “Patchwork” is derived.
