Bandai announced at the 2022 All Japan Model & Hobby Show that it will include the Huckebein Mk-II from the series in March 2023. The set will include the mechs notable armaments, such as the Photon Rifle, Chakram Shooter, and G-Impact Cannon.
Huckebein Mk-II will be the fourth mech to receive an HG plamodel adaptation. Masaki Andohs Cybaster was the first unit to have a plamodel released in 2021. Kyosuke Nanbus Alteisen and the Gespenst followed suit afterwards.
The return of Huckebein has become a major issue in the user base. There was an alleged copyright issue involving the Huckebeins due to their similarity in designs with Gundams. The issue began when anime adaptations of began appearing in the late 2000s.
The Exbein was introduced as an alternative to the usual head design for anime versions. Huckebein figures and plamodels were then mysteriously removed away and no longer available in Japanese stores during the period. Ultimately, the 2012 PS3 entry featured one of the series'' most infamous scenes, in which Armala Burton and her Galilnagant destroyed nearly all prototype Huckebeins.
In 2016, the most recent game,,, was released for the PS3 and PS4, but it still included the masses-produced Mk-II and series derivatives, such as the Exbeins and Yon Jebanas Pfeil III.
In the future, the Huckebeins would return as a bonus unit in the 2017s, while the 2021 title featured a new mech called the Huckebein 30. These developments arose as a sign that the copyright issue had been resolved, especially after Bandai Namco acquired the license owner, Sotsu, in 2020.
The last of Vanishing Trooper scenario, which was first released in March 2022, reveals a fresh story about the previously mysterious third Mk-II unit in the canon universe. Shizuki Shizukawa is also available as a playable unit in the mobile game. After this unit line, the upcoming model kit will be designed.
Huckebein Mk-II HG plamodel will be released in 2023 with a MSRP of 4,950 yen ($34).
