On November 4, Bandai Spirits announced that they will release a HG 1/24 model kit based on Hatsuho Shinonome’s Spiricle Striker Mugen. The kit is slated to ship to retailers in April 2021, with a suggested retail price of 4,950 yen ($47.73 USD).
Bandai released a trailer for the model, which showcases it among the other Spiricle Strikers released in the series, as well as the upcoming HG 1/24 Spiricle Striker Obu Prototype model kit.
Hatsuho’s model kit will include a replica of Hatsuho’s rocket-powered hammer, in addition to white panels that adorn the front of the unit, which mimic paper talismans.
Much like previous models in the line, Hatsuho’s HG 1/24 Mugen Model Kit will feature articulated joints, as well as an openable cockpit. The kit will include an unpainted version of pilot Hatsuho Shinonome, which will sit inside.
