Dark Nebula Empire model kit catalog

Between The New Voyage and Be Forever Yamato, a large range of mecha was designed and animated for the Dark Nebula Empire, but Bandai made a grand total of three model kits. In subsequent decades, fans addressed this deficit with a very respectable lineup of garage kits. All known Dark Nebula models are presented here.

Bonus

From the Be Forever Yamato Roman Album (1981): Bandai’s prototypes for several model kits from the film. Only those boxed in red actually went into production.

Text near the bottom reads, “These models are wooden prototypes made by Bandai to make plamo.”
