Bandai Spirits collectors division Tamashii Nations have announced a third option parts set for their Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team ROBOT SPIRITS ver. A.N.I.M.E figure line. The “ver. A.N.I.M.E.”(Action New Imagination Memory Emotion) series features dynamic anime proportions and dense sculpting, as well as a state-of-the-art articulation system that allows fans to recreate the impressive action scenes from the figures’ respective anime works.
Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team Option Parts Set 03 is the third collection of additional equipment and effect parts that can used to accessorize ROBOT SPIRITS figures from The 08th MS Team series. Presently Tamashii Nations has only unveiled their plans to include a FFB-7Bst Jet Core Booster, among new effect parts. More details will be announced at a later date.
Designed by Kimitoshi Yamane, the FFB-7Bst Jet Core Booster is featured in the 1996 Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team OVA series.
