Anime Limited's AllTheAnime site is listing the mecha film Gundam F91 for April 26 as a Collector's Blu-ray. Full details of the extras are TBC, although the listing says a 52-page art booklet will be included.

Directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, the cinema film was released in Japan in 1991. Set in U.C. 0123, thirty years after Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack, the film shows the emergence of new faction in space called the Crossbone Vanguard. It conquesr the Frontier IV colony almost immediately, renaming it "Cosmo Babylonia". Caught in the crossfire is college student Seabook Arno, who sees many of his friends killed during the skirmish and discovers that his girlfriend Cecily Fairchild is actually Berah Ronah—heir to the Ronah family clan and the Crossbone Vanguard. He then finds out that his mother is alive and has been working on a new mobile suit codenamed "Gundam Formula-91".

Tomino worked with two of his most famous collaborators from the first Mobile Suit Gundam in 1979; character designer Yoshikazu Yasuhiko and mecha designer Kunio Okawara.
