Whoa, didn't see this coming! A Master Grade GN-X (pronounced Jinx) from the Gundam 00 Season 1 Anime. The first ever Mobile Suit used by the Earth Forces that had a fake GN Drive and could match up squarely with the Gundam's of Celestial Being when they didn't have their Trans Am feature on. The picture below is of an unpainted prototype of the GN-X.

It's up for pre-order already at Amiami, the SRP is 3600 yen but they are selling it for only 2,640 yen or 25% off from the shelf price. Hobby Search is selling it for 3420 yen, 3600 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 2520 yen at HWJapan

Its expected to be available by January of 2010. Of course you still have to worry about production delays and the product being pushed out to a later date. Just look for it in their Gundam Master Grade section.

From what I remember in the series, the government forces were given 30 units of these by the Celestial Being Faction of Alejandro Corner.
