One of the biggest announcements during the event is the unveiling of a new Perfect Grade GunPla because after Four whole years of waiting, Bandai will finally be releasing a new 1/60 scale Perfect Grade GunPla, and it’s none other than the Unicorn Gundam from Gundam UC. This 1/60 scale PlaMo will be released December 2014, four years after the release of the last Perfect Grade GunPla, which is the Strike Freedom from Gundam SEED Destiny. It boasts an awe-inspiring gimmick of a light-up psycho-frame using LED lights, this means, when in Destroy Mode, its entire body will be glowing.

Bandai is also hinting that might also be releasing RG versions of the other Operation Meteor mobile suits, and like their MG versions, they will also be sharing the same inner frame.
