Unveiled recently on the Gundam.info.en Facebook page, a new line of Super Deformed Gunpla kits will be arriving soon – SD Gundam EX Standard! So far four mobile suits have been announced as part of this new line. The classic RX-78-2, Seed’s Aile Strike Gundam, 00’s Exia and Wing’s Wing Gundam Zero will all get the SD treatment for this new line. From the promo images it looks like these new kits have upped the detail and articulation, so I’m very much looking forward to these little guys.

SD Gundam EX-Standard 003 Gundam Exia
SD Gundam EX-Standard 004 Wing Gundam Zero
No release details are available yet, but expect them to be fairly cheap once they’re available. SDs are great fun, quick builds and fantastic for practicing painting techniques. Although promo images are always a little more detailed than the final product ends up being, I’m hopeful these retain some of the colour separation we see here and don’t rely to heavily on stickers for detail, though odds are they will. Either way these are looking pretty great and once they’re up for preorder I’ll be all over these!
