inb4 suition buys 10 of these and responds with an essay cause he has no life
Lol use the HG ver more cheaper
Really? I've been hoping for this and presumed it would be online exclusive, but show exclusive...that's gonna make it even more expensive
Notice that this is the regular one? My guess is that the 7 Sword/G and its Inspection Color version will be Premium Bandai releases with maybe also the 00 QanT Trans Am. Ugh. Damn you Bandai. But I'll buy them all.
Come on bandai. You know you will make all the 00 fabs empty this wallet if ya make this a normal release.
I want the rifle too :'(
>Sold at gunpla expoWHY BANDAI WHYYYYYY!??

Good to hear, and hope it'll include gn sword blaster too on p-bandai version.
Why??........ Why on expo?.......
So this is only an expo exclusive? Really? I was hoping for an RG of this but having it as an expo exclusive makes my heart hurt so bad :'(
Remember that this is just the 00 Gundam 7 Sword, and not the 00 7 Sword/G. I think Bandai plans to do a 7 Sword/G as a P-Bandai later and also a 7 Sword/G Inspection colors too.
Now THAT would be smart, let's hope they actually do it though.
refer to mg kit still have anothers gun/sword for the right shoulder.. is that 7 sword/G?
yes, that is 7 sword/G with GN Sword II Blaster on the right shoulder
OK guys,listen to me. you can buy it 2016 expo, and next year,2017, you can buy it via primium bandai.
For people who can't read Japanese, The sentence beneath the picture says: Item will be sold on premium-bandai later
If you can read the Japanese, it says it will be sold at GunPla Expo and then later as a Premium Bandai.Considering that, I think that the Premium Bandai version later will be the 00 Gundam 7 Sword/G and at that time, I think they'll also announce the 00 Gundam 7 Sword/G Inspection Colors.
so basically, it will be released in Gunpla Expo World Tour 2016 this Winter first, then release worldwide as p-bandai?
When it's sold as P-Bandai will it be the full MS? Or will they sell the Seven Swords parts to combine with the already current RG OO Raiser?
I will call it now. The GN Drive "holder" is a new part, the "Shield Mode" handle is new too, but the rest is all HG. The white parts are not even sharp.
As someone who did convert RG 00 7 sword with HG parts already, HG one look less detailed compared to true RG 7 sword in that pic. Although short and long sword don't have sharp tip like it HG counterpart, different connection type on GN sword II handle and long-short sword edge between HG and RG will make bandai to make new parts. And the knee parts surely will be new for RG because the HG one cannot fit properly too RG 00's knees, even with bit modification it still leaving much gap on knee area compared to the picture, and looks like it can use knee-splitting feature. Last, HG GN katar's grip can't fit properly on RG 00's manipulator, something that will be minus point if it still use parts from HG.
So in summary...First it'll be a GunPla Expo release.Later it will be a Premium Bandai release.Now what we don't know is if the Premium Bandai be the 7 Sword/G version or not. I think if they did make the Premium Bandai version the 7 Sword/G in RG they will probably announce the regular 7 Sword/G and the Inspection Color 7 Sword/G since we have it in HG and MG. The HG Inspection Color was a GunPla Expo exclusive that came out alongside the 1.5 Gundam Type Dark HG. Anyway, knowing Bandai and how much they love to do Premium Bandai releases, the regular 7 Sword/G and the Inspection Color being color swaps I think would be another one of those instances where Bandai can and probably will do that.I think people might think they are going to be reusing the HG version except for the handles because that is what Bandai has done before like with the RG Strike Rouge IWSP version. But if you look at the pictures of this 7 Sword/G Real Grade kit, the details are different compared to the more bland HG 00 7 Sword/G kit. So I think this will be an actual new mold for all the parts. The reason why I think they are not doing the 7 Sword/G version now is probably to profit more and to give a bit more time to design and engineer the "G" part of the 7 Sword/G into RG form (i.e. a new mold for those weapons). And then after they finish that up, they will probably copy-paste those molds into the Inspection Color version and then release both 00 7 Sword/G + 00 7 Sword/G Inspection Color at the same time as Premium Bandai releases that would be easier but still expensive to buy.I will probably end up buying this GunPla Expo version now and then again later as a Premium Bandai if it is the RG 0 7 Sword/G + RG 00 7 Sword/G Inspection Color kits later. I'm just worried that by the time they announce the Premium Bandai version, Bandai will do more of these "Expansion Unit" kind of RG kits as more Premium Bandai for things like the Exia's variations which are missing like the Repair 2, Repair 3, that Rolling gray color Exia, and the Avalanche Dash Exia. Bandai has been strangely quiet about doing those Premium Bandai versions. I think that is the ones missing from the Exia RG they could redo.Then that leaves us with the QanT, which I think the Trans Am RG version is likely and then the Full Saber maybe? That BTF company did the MG bootleg Full Saber a while back and now they seemed to have scaled that kit for the RG. Prime92 did a review for both the MG Full Saber and RG Full Saber both from the bootleg company, BTF, on YouTube. That's weird that Bandai didn't do a Trans Am 00 QanT in HG, RG, or MG when they did it for the Exia and 00 Raiser in HG, RG, and MG. I wonder what they're thinking?? I think they're maybe just holding out and then planning to flood the market with tons of Premium Bandai stuff soon.
Is this an add on part for existing 00 raiser or a whole new suit
Considering the price I think it's a full kit and not just an add on set.
Sorry for stupid question, but do somebody know how to buy p-bandai kits? I'm currently staying in Japan at least for the next 2 years. Tks.
