The GAT-X105 Strike Gundam is a prototype multi-mode mobile suit featured in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. Its primary pilot was Kira Yamato before it was passed down to former mobile armor ace pilot, Mu La Flaga.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Strike Gundam is the most versatile of the five Gundams in the Earth Alliance’s G Project and can be easily configured for various types of combat. Using its Striker Packs, it can be outfitted for high mobility combat (Aile Strike), long range assault (Launcher Strike) or melee combat (Sword Strike). In addition, the Striker packs are also equipped with backup batteries that can extend the Strike’s operation time. Built on the X100 series frame first adopted by the GAT-X102 Duel Gundam, the Strike also has the Phase Shift armor system. In terms of armament, the Strike itself is equipped only with two head-mounted CIWS and a pair of combat knives stored in the side skirt armor, but it can also be armed with a bazooka, a shield and a beam rifle. Later on, the Strike Gundam was equipped with a Natural-use OS to allow its new pilot, Mu La Flaga, to control the suit effectively.
The Strike Gundam from Gundam Seed makes its debut into the PG line featuring brand new styling with extreme articulation and unprecedented mechanical detail.
Shoulder units can extend outward for expanded range of movement. Elbows feature multi-joint construction, allowing complex poses such as drawing the sword. Stomach unit features full articulation, including “hydraulic” cylinders. Knee armor designed to move along with poses. Calf frame extends and retracts.
Battery-powered light-emitting diode (LED) system can be switched on to illuminate the eyes. A new original gimmick includes the “Grand Slam” sword which features chromed plastic for a realistic finish.
Additional accessories include a beam rifle with accurate internal detail, a shield with actual direct-view shutter feature, and 2 foldable armor Schneider knives that can be stored in the skirt armor. CR1220 battery for LED sold separately.
This plastic model kit from Bandai comes molded in separate colors, no paint required.
Pieces are easy to snap together, so there is no glue required either!
