Tamashii Nations is proud to announce that the titular mobile suit from MOBILE SUIT GINDAM SEED DESTINY (機動戦士ガンダムSEED DESTINY, Kidoo Senshi Gandamu Shiido Desutinii, 2004-2005) will be joining the premium Metal Build series! Featuring diecast parts and state-of-the-art articulation, this incredible rendition of the titular MS has been rendered with an exceptional level of quality and detail. For this particular iteration in the series, mechanical design director Tomo Shigeta was brought in to personally oversee the figure’s creation, and ensure the Destiny seen on screen was faithfully replicated down to the most minute detail.
This deluxe robot action figure set also boasts special features such as an original activation gimmick for the mobile suit’s secondary weapon — the massive M2000GX High-Energy Long-Range Beam Cannon. In addition, the blade part of the MMI-714 “Arondight” Anti-Ship Sword features a moveable slide gimmick.
