Recent hobby magazines have shown that GN-X is announced as the second MG for Gundam 00 series, after Gundam Exia!
It is to be released in January 2010 at retail price of 3780 Yen (tax inclusive).
This is truly unexpected for a lot of people, since GN-X will be the first grunt machine to be on MG (Master Grade) outside Universal Century.
Original artwork of GN-X
GN-X is a mobile suit introduced late in the first season of Gundam 00. Equipped with pseudo solar furnaces (aka GN Drive Tau), they are the first mass-produced units capable of matching against the Gundam units.
With the release of GN-X, it is very likely that other variants will be added to MG as well, including but not limited to Advanced GN-X, GN-XIII (from Gundam 00 Season 2), and even the GN-XIV for the upcoming Gundam 00 Movie.
From Random Curiosity
I didn't expect GN-X to be released for Master Grade! In my opinion, it's one of the more unique-looking designs for Gundam 00. Looks tempting I must say, and I love its long barrel rifle ^^; was thinking about buying several 1/144s to make a squad of them some time ago. Maybe I'll buy one and pair it up with my yet-to-build MG Exia :o
