NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the Raystorm game, a ship called the R-Gray1 traveled through the air and attacked enemy ships that swooped in for the kill. The game allowed players to choose the R-Gray1 which fired a volley of shots at enemies or the R-Gray2 which shot concentrated dual-lasers which cut through opposing armor. Both ships have a lock-on function where missiles are sent sailing at multiple targets at once when activated. The R-Gray2 has a higher missile count than the R-Gray1 but Kotobukiya doesn't really care - they're going with the R-Gray1 with their Raystorm model kit.
The upcoming R-Gray1 kit isn't the first toy to feature the Raystorm ship. In the second Shooting Game Historica set, the R-Gray1 was one of the ships in the collection which was sold in gashapon form and was made up of nine parts that were bolted and fitted together to create the ship.
The R-Gray1 model kit is built to 1/144 scale and measures 160mm or 6.29" in length. The weaponry of the R-Gray1 is attached on the sides and a clear blue canopy on top of the ship which allows visibility inside the cockpit. In addition to the ship in kit form, a movable mounting arm is included so that the R-Gray1 can be displayed in style. Preorders ship in January 2012.
