MG ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam

Earn 60 Reward Points

The ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam is the latest and greatest in ZAFT’s Mobile Suit technology. As seen in the closing chapters of Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny, the ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam is a further development of the ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam. ZAFT swapped out the Silhouette System for a single, vast loadout designed to fit any scenario. The ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam uses the latest Voiture Luminere propulsion system mounted inside an improved version of the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam‘s wing system. This combination grants the ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam immense maneuverability and creates the iconic Wings of Light effect.

Included alongside the MG Destiny Gundam for accessories:

  • MA-BAR73/S High Energy Beam Rifle
  • Anti-Beam Coating Shield
  • M2000GX High Energy Long-Range Beam Cannon
  • MMI-714 “Arondight” Beam Sword
  • MX2351 “Solidus Fulgor” Beam Shield Effect
  • MMI-X340 “Palma Fiocina” Palm Beam Cannon Replacement Hands x2
  • RQM60F “Flash Edge 2” Beam Boomerang x2
  • 1/100 Shinn Asuka Figure
  • 1/100 Stellar Louisser Figure
  • Display Base


The MG Destiny Gundam provides builders with a complete inner frame supported by polycaps to create a wide assortment of poses. The model’s double-jointed limbs and swiveling thighs ensure a dynamic-looking display. The Destiny Gundam can spread its wings just as it does in the anime, thanks to Bandai’s clever engineering. The M2000GX High Energy Long-Range Beam Cannon comes attached to an articulated arm that allows builders to position the weapon for firing without removal. Use the included display base to take full advantage of the MG Destiny Gundam’s posability with some awesome flying action!

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam’s loadout primarily consists of improved versions of the ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam’s Sihouette Weapons. Attached to the Mobile Suit’s back is the MMI-714 “Arondight” Beam Sword, developed from the Sword Impulse’s MMI-710 Excalibur. The Arondight is strong enough to slice even massive Mobile Suits like the Destroy Gundam in half! The ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam shares new equipment with its sister suit, the ZGMF-X666S Legend Gundam, including the “Solidus Fulgor” Beam Shield and the “Palma Fiocina” Palm Beam Cannons. There are tons more included in this kit, so be sure to get your hands on a copy when available next!

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the Destiny Gundam with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
