- MG GP-01 Gundam
The MG GP01 fully lives up to the billing of Bandai's superb series of "Master Grade" kits. Ten runners of parts plus poly-caps combine to form a fully-posable and exquisitely-detailed model of the main mecha from Gundam 0083 in its early form (Bandai has also produced a "Full Burner" version, linked below).
Besides the standard beam saber, shield and rifle accessories, the "Core Fighter" pulls out of the middle of the model and transforms into a jet fighter-type vehicle. Like other MG kits, inner mechanical details and opening hatches are to be found throughout the model.
Molded in color and featuring snap-together assembly, this model looks great just stuck together right out of the box. Of course, for a truly professional appearance, you'll also want to use glue and paint. Foil sticker, dry transfer and clear sticker markings are included.

Not too many Gunpla hobbyists care for this version of GP-01, which is the A version. They usually prefer the B version, which is Fullburner. I, however, have always loved this version of Zephyranthes! Personally, it was such a disappointment that we didn't get to see his armor add-ons that had been designed for MSG 0083. Seriously though, he may be dated a bit, but this is a fun build! And this kit, in my honest opinion, is an excellent choice for Master Grade beginners; his price is reasonable for a MG model kit too! Maybe one day we'll see a re-release of him, which would be nice, but until then, as I've said before, this is a great MG kit any Gunpla hobbyist, veteran or beginner, would enjoy building.
