MG 1/100 Banshee Ver. Ka Final Battle

2012 is shaping up to be a great year for Bandai. Started out with the MG HeavyArms EW (which should be out today in Japan by now), followed by awesome RG Add-ons, specifically, the RG SkyGrasper and GrandSlam Hobby Japan freebie.

The HGUC Banshee DT-Mode and Unicorn Mode was just released this January. Guess what? Bandai didn't wait long enough and announced the MG 1/100 Banshee kit for a March 2012 Release.

Great right? Although I could hear the wails and cries of Gunpla collectors/modellers who just purchased the HG versions. But Bandai did not stop there, behold, the MG 1/100 Banshee Ver. Ka Final Battle:

The kit would be available from the Bandai Pro Hobby Online Shop. A few notes about this kit from what i've researched so far:
  • This version may not have the Armed Armor VN and Armed Armor BS that the MG 1/100 Banshee OVA version has. [unconfirmed]  
  • The pscyhoframe would be a blue/green color, indicating that the Banshee's full power mode may be similar to the Unicorn Full Armor.
  • As shown in the 3rd photo, the kit may have a Light-up or LED feature [unconfirmed]. Read this from a post in Tomopop.
  • Kit may not be available outside Japan. [unconfirmed]
  • March 2012 Release, simultaenously with the OVA version? Its anyone's guess at this point.
Details are quite sketchy at this point, but rest assured that I would keep a VERY close eye on this kit, since i'm a die-hard Unicorn fan. Thanks for viewing!

Just confirmed some info by visiting the official Bandai Pro Hobby Online Shop item details, took screenshots for you guys to see:

The only thing left to check though is: will it light up! Let's cross our fingers!
