A great new entry in the Gundam Seed Destiny line is the Big Scale Strike Freedom Flash Edition Gundam model! With a massive height of 20 inches and a wingspan of almost 24 inches (2 FEET!). This is a regular snap-together plastic Gundam kit; all the parts are molded in color, and you will need no paint or glue for assembly. Foil stickers and clear Gundam stickers are included for detail. The only thing that makes this kit different from any other 1/60 scale kit is the LIGHTNING throughout! Dozens of translucent yellow and blue parts are included, as well as lighting contacts, light bulbs, and a diode. The lighting starts at the included display base, and the wiring is integral to the building of the kit itself; simple pictorial instructions will get you through the construction with a little patience (and perhaps the experience of having built a fairly complex Gundam kit before). 1 CR1220 and 3 AA batteries are required, but not included. A teeny scale (non-painted) model of Kira Yamato is included as well, and all of the Strike Freedom Gundam's weaponry is included:l the Dragoon, rail guns, beam sabres, beam rifles, and a beam shied--though unfortunately these don't light up!
Gundam Seed is one of the newest Gundam lines, and Bandai Japan is only producing small numbers of the kits at this time. Don't wait on ordering this Strike Freedom Flash Edition Gundam kit--or any other of the Gundam Seed models; they may be sold out if you do!
This item is 1/60 scale, but it is not a "Perfect Grade". It is part of the new "Big Scale Real Detail" series.
