Bluefin, the American distributor of Bandai's Gundam models, announced on Wednesday that a small quantity of the limited-edition HGUC Unicorn Gundam Unit 2 Banshee Destroy Mode (Clear Ver.) will be available at Otakon at the retail price of US$30. The model kit was originally only available at the Japanese theatrical release of Gundam Unicorn Episode 5 “The Black Unicorn.” However, a few were allowed to be sold at America, starting with an unannounced batch at Anime Expo earlier this month.
A screening of the fifth Gundam UC episode will take place at Otakon on Saturday with Michael Sinterniklaas and Tetsuya Kakihara — the English and Japanese voices of the anime's Angelo Sauper — as guests. Otakon will run from July 27 to July 29 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
