Tamashii Nations has teased the release of the ASW-G-66 Gundam Kimaris Vidar for 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 mechanical designer Ippei Gyoubu, the ASW-G-66 Gundam Kimaris Vidar is piloted by Gaelio Bauduin in the 2016 second season of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans series. This Gundam-Frame mobile suit is the final evolution of Gaelio’s ASW-G-66 Gundam Kimaris. Along with adopting its predecessor’s name, ASW-G-XX Gundam Vidar, it retains its Alaya-Vijnana Type E, giving Gaelio all of the benefits of the system without the risk to his own brain.
Directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai and scripted by Mari Okada, Iron-Blooded Orphans began airing October 2015. Michinori Chiba and Yu Ito designed the characters for the series, with a mechanical design team consisting of Naohiro Washio, Ippei Gyoubu, Kanetake Ebikawa, Kenji Teraoka, and Tamotsu Shinohara. Masaru Yokoyama provided the music composition for the series.
More details about the figure will be released next week on July 14.
