You know I was thinking recently about kitbashing a GM Sniper from an HG Ground Gundam and the GM Head from the Ground War set... but this is even better! A proper HGUC GM Ground Type! The release of a HGUC GM Sniper is inevitable! AND I WILL HAVE BOTH!
If you have this, the HGUC Gundam Ez-8, and the Gundam Ground War Set, you have the entire 08th MS Team at your disposal.
This pretty much confirms which UC Revive will be one of the next ones.
There's really not a whole lot wrong with the HGUC Gundam Ground Type to warrant a Revive kit. The only problems really are its lack of accessories, that flimsy sliding shield slot that Bandai used for awhile, and hands that you have to fiddle with to keep from separating when you try to pose it with the few accessories it does have. Otherwise, it has Otherwise, it has great proportions and great posability. Those few issues are annoying, but are not enough to warrant a Revive. The basic GM, on the other hand...
Yes! We will have the HGUC RGM-79 GM Revive soon! I love the first GM kit, now I can hopefully get the Revive version after I get the GM Grount Type Revive! =D
Anon@9:52, lack of accesories? What? It had almost everything that the Ground Gundam uses on the OVAs.
Except for the beam rifle, missile launcher, and rocket launcher.
Kinda unfair how the revive strike freedom arrives in two months and this guy needs an entire year
All it says is 2017. Considering Bandai announces their kits a few months in advance of their release it will very likely be early 2017...
Why the visor looks like a sticker while the GM head preaviously made for the HGUCHG kit was made in clear plastic?
That's clear green parts dude
None of you have noticed this is the Gundam blue destiny version of the ground gm
Show us what you mean.
You mean Naoki's draw of a Ground GM?
A very exciting announcement from a series that still needs a bit of HG attention... Apsalus and Gouf Flight Type, I'm looking at you. At any rate, I'm looking forward to seeing what weapons load out this guy will get. I Will definitely pick up this one when it's released... all the way in 2017...
I'm sensing a P-Bandai GM Sniper...but atleast they're finally releasing a GM Ground Type :D...But I still hope that BANDAI makes me eat my words and release the GM Sniper as a normal release :D
Is this kit are just a recycle from the older ones?
If it is not a recycle, we may get a RX-79(G) revive in the future.
Finally you can do Karen's Gundam Ground Type 'GM Head'
You could already do that with the UC Hardgraph Gundam [G] Ground War Set, which, in addition to waterslide decals, two railguns, Two Hovertrucks, and 4 new hinged-wrist right hands, it came with upgrade parts for the old HG GM Ground Type from the 90s, including two GM [G] heads, and hand pegs made specifically to fit the old HG 08th MS Team kits for the new hands. The HGUC Gundam Ground Type that came with the set, of course, could have its head replaced with one of the GM Ground Type heads. The heads are okay, although while the visor and front main camera is molded in clear green, it's a very light shade, and it goes over a gray part used for detailing. You can barely tell the visor is green when the heads are finished, and they might as well be just clear.
Seriously, why put a GM head on a Gundam?! Just use the GM Ground Type instead!
You could already do that with the Ground War kit. It included 2 GM Ground heads that fit both the old 90s HG GM Ground and the HGUC RX-79[G].
Now I need the Apsalus and the Dom from 8th ms team!!! The 8th ms team zaku would be nice as well since the mold have been already made for Gundam The Origin HG.
Don't forget the Guntank Mass Production type! I have always wanted one so badly.
Does Bandai use HGUC Gundam ground type as its main body ?? If does, then we'll never get a new revive for the gundama ground type. Well I think the HGUC gundam ground type has a good enough in proportion and mechanism. We just have to wait for GM sniper and Gouf flight. possibly apsalus too
It's an entirely new mold. Like you said though, there's not really too much wrong with the HGUC Gundam Ground Type that we already have to warrant a Revive.

on of my favorite GM designs. Can't wait. I hope they don't do a Revive version of the Ground Combat Gundam. RG Ground Combat on the other hand .... :)
still waiting for the Real Grade
Give me a Gelgoog cannon and a Jager and I'll be content
