Another plastic model kit dedicated to the recent Sakura Wars game has been made available for pre-order by Bandai Spirits.
This time around it’s the new Ryoushisentouki Shisenoubu custom mecha piloted by heroine Sakura Amamiya.
You can find it on Ami Ami for 4,370 yen, which translates approximately into $42.
The model kit follows those released for protagonist Seijuro Kamiyama and the older mecha piloted by Sakura Amamiya, Azami Mochizuki, Anastasia Palma, and Claris. It’s part of Bandai’s “HG” line which is best known for entry-level gunpla kits.
It includes its katana, decals, and even a model portraying Sakura herself. It’s worth mentioning that unlike the rest of the kit, she requires painting.
The cockpit hatch can open and the arms and legs can extend in order to enable some dynamic poses that would be impossible with standards joints.
If you’re curious about what it looks like, you can enjoy a few pictures in the gallery below.
