GAF and the 50th Shizuoka Hobby Show! MG EW Gundam Wing Kits - Operation Meteor

"The year is After Colony 195. With high expectations, human beings leave Earth to begin a new life in space colonies. However, the United Earth Sphere Alliance gains great military powers and soon seizes control of one colony after another in the name of *justice* and *peace.* The year is After Colony 195. Operation Meteor: In a move to counter the Alliance's tyranny, rebel citizens of certain colonies scheme to bring new arsenals to the Earth, disguising them as shooting stars. However, the Alliance Headquarters catches on to this operation. "

This started every single Gundam Wing episode during the first season. This was first experience with Gundam many many years ago now, and finally we see the Gundam Wing suits, the weapons of Operation Meteor finally in MG form, although not in the way we expected. We have the EW ver. of the original kits, we've already seen the release of Wing, Deathscythe, Shenlong and now Sandrock and Heavyarms will be joining their brethren.

Operation Meteor at last. This diorama even recreates the first time these suits came together in Gundam Wing. Good job!

 MG Heavyarms EW 1/100, though lacking it's iconic Gatling gun, looks good!

MG Sandrock EW 1/100, love the color scheme of the original, will be painting those blades silver though.
