The Crossbone Gundam is pretty cool and all, but 1/144 scale might be a bit awkward for 40k (too big to be infantry, too small to be a titan).

That said, it needs more skulls.

^It's actually the X3. Although there is an MG kit of 1 and 2, I believe.

And there are Gundam Fix Figuration figures of all three Crossbone variants. I used to have one of the X2. Gorgeous figures.

Good question!

Is this model a new release?

The 'Intended for 40K' is clearly a joke, but if this is a anew model, OK...

Although it's a new release, we don't generally do a lot of Gundam news posts. The sole reason for it seems to be to make a joke or suggest proxies re: GW and big models (i.e Knights). As such, it probably shouldn't be in N&R.

As a 40k general thread? Sure. Although there's already knight proxy threads (scroll up for one linked in this one). In N&R? Not so much.

I think that's disingenuous though. If the post was legitimately about new releases from Bandai, then it would have some of the other 47 upcoming releases from that same site.

Instead, it's just an obvious throwaway joke in the wrong sub forum.

I'm not sure why you're so upset about it. The mods split it off, so ignore it if you don't like it - rather than bumping it to have an angry argument. I actually find the "slightly different" stuff people post here occasionally to be an interesting read, much of the time. Occasionally I even think "I'd like to buy that."

So since you asked:
Here are some new and upcoming Gundam Kits. Some of them look pretty cool, and like other cool models that currently lack rules (Dreamforge Games, Imbrian Arts, Red Box) it's up to the end user to figure out how they could use them in miniature wargaming - or simply use them as display pieces.

Really mate... does it matter that much? If even a handful of people looked at this and thought that it's cool, that probably justifies its existence.

I think it's a not-very-subtly-disguised stand to hold it up, since it has a hefty-looking about of crap as a backpack going there. Ironically, except for the chute, I think that one is my favourite of the bunch.

I'm going to be nit-picky here, AzazelX. Three of those pics you posted are of toys. The Unicron Destroy Mode, the Banshee Norn Destroy Mode, and that Crossbone X-1 Full Cloth are all Robot Damashii releases, not models. Also, that HG Crossbone that started this thread isn't the X-3 or any of the standard Crossbone Gundam designs. It's a Build Fighters release, which is odd. I wonder why they'd make a kit of a modified design before doing the actual one? It looks similar to the X-1 Skull Heart, but that skull is WAY too big.

I do hope this means that Bandai might finally be paying a bit more attention to the later UC stuff. I'd love to have some 1/144 Crossbone Vanguard suits or some Zanscare stuff.
