This is FW Converge series. It's a one-piece capsule toy, really.

I know the SD series is close. Looking for something like the SD Unicorn/Banshee Gundams (modelled by keita). But, it appears those 2 are the only ones. Not looking for the normal SD kits.

Do they exist?

The Converge series is a bit more than merely a capsule toy. Trading figure would be a closer description, probably. As far as I know (and I know tons on the subject) there is no model kit line/scale/design that is similar to the Converge series. It's very different in that it is a convergence (hence the name) of 1/144 HG, 1/100 MG and SD proportions. You could kitbash a Converge type model, but it would be pretty expensive.

Thanks Joe, that's what I was fearing. I really do like the proportions of them.

Sigh.. I guess I'll have to make my own then. From scratch.

That would make a great project! Be sure to make a WIP thread here!

I already am. Sort of....HERE (http://www.gundamforums.com/showthread.php/4350-PROJECT-Gundam-Strike-UMPG-1-12-scale-%28costume%29)

Another fun project I want to tackle after my costume would be a 24", resin kit, of a (undetermined) Gundam with the proportions of the FW Converge! Full inner skeleton too! (Yea.. I know.. I keep putting silly over-the-top ambitious projects on myself)

Or a clay sculpture of a Gundam battle scene.
