It’s going to be a rough couple of months for Gundam fans who are trying to avoid all spoilers for the Gundam Unicorn OVA anime episode. The primary reason that it’s going to be hard to avoid being spoiled for anything is that Bandai has been soliciting items in full force for Gundam UC Episode 7, including the topic of today’s discussion.

When I watched the first episode of the Gundam Build Fighters anime this fall, I was pretty sure it was the worst thing I’d ever seen. A few weeks and a few episodes later, and I’m happily humming the Gundam Build Fighters theme song throughout the day. I’ve been pretty content with the HG 1/144 Build Fighters Gundam models released–up until I saw the Sengoku Astray Gundam in the anime.
