Bandai Spirits collectors division Tamashii Nations have teased the XXXG-01S2 Altron Gundam joining their METAL ROBOT Spirits line of high end mecha action figures. METAL ROBOT Spirits is a double name figure brand combining the elements of ROBOT SPIRITS with the Chogokin series to feature die-cast metal parts and joints.
Designed by legendary mechanical designer Kunio Okawara, XXXG-01S2 Altron Gundam is the rebuilt, upgraded version of the signature XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam piloted by Chang Wufei 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!
