Yet another "wow" when I opened the box. A good affordable kit of the "Dendrobium" has been needed for a long time and Bandai finally serves one up. Hatches on the missile bays can be posed open or closed. The GP-03S is removable and slightly poseable. Claw units are poseable and you can have with or without the beam saber. Kit is largely snap-together but you do need cement and paint for the GP03S Steimen and the Garbera-Tetra.. Item Size/Weight : 32 x 19.3 x 8.4 cm / 430g
There are 16 runners of parts here. Those shoulder "binders" are particularly interesting, especially the way the outer nozzle pivots downward. The "atomic bazooka" can be mounted in the hand in firing position, or it breaks down into two pieces, the barrel mounting in the inside of the shield (see photo), with the remainder mounting on the GP02's back. Comes with the usual stickers, inner-mechanism detail, multiple sets of hands, beam saber, rifle. Simple instruction included in a box.
Inspired by Sun Shangxiang from the Chinese literary classic "Romance of the Three Kingdoms," Sonshoukou Gerbera is now a nicely detailed snap-fit plastic kit! She wields a naginata weapon, and the bow on her back can be detached for use as an actual bow weapon! Includes two types of paper cut-out aprons. Part of Bandai's "BB Senshi Sangokuden Senjin Kettou Hen" ("BB Warrior Romance Of The Three Kingdoms: Battle of the War Gods Chapter") line, this simple kit is molded in color and features polycap joints, detachable armor parts, and heel stamps with his name etched into both heels for you to stamp on anything you like when stamp dye (not included) is applied to the heels! Foil stickers are provided for detail so painting is not required, but would add a more realistic appearance to the final product. A full-color manga chapter drawn by PLEX Tatsuhiko Shimoda is also included (printed on the assembly instructions sheet). Although the assembly instructions are in Japanese, they are extremely well illustrated so anyone can follow them.
Bandai's newest PG offering is truly deserving of the name "Perfect Grade," and it's also a two-in-one; you can build it as either the GP01 or the GP01Fb! Like previous Perfect Grade kits, this behemoth offers a level of detail and motion that's far beyond what you see in even the biggest Master Grade offerings. Panels and hatches all over the surface open, to reveal inner mechanical details. What's more, after you get done wading through over two dozen runners of literally thousands of parts, you'll have armament for the GP01 including two 60mm Vulcans, two beam sabers, and a beam rifle, as well as the Core Fighter II. For the GP01Fb, there are two extra beam guns, and you can build the Core Fighter II Fb. But that's not all -- the kit also includes the parts to build a hangar/dock (see photos below), with little figures of maintenance workers to position around it! A bonus card with a serial number on it also included. Act now, and add this beauty to your Perfect Grade collection (and don't forget to budget for the shipping costs, this item weighs 5kg/11 lbs.)!

Mecha OverviewThe third of these new prototypes to be produced by Anaheim was the RX-78GP03 Gundam, code-named "Dendrobium." The Dendrobium Stamen is the core component of the incredible weapons system known as the Gundam GP03. Designed to operate in conjunction with the armed base Orchis, the Stamen is equipped with tail binders to lock it in position, and its forearms unfold into special manipulator claws which are used to grab weapons from the Orchis's weapon containers. The Stamen was, for the most part, a standard type of mobile suit, although it did incoporate some differences from other "normal" Gundam prototypes. Instead of the costly Core Block System, the cockpit was of the panoramic cockpit display originally tested in the Gundam Alex. The usual head vulcan guns were absent, replaced by an advanced sensor and avionics package. The backpack was composed of a "docking binder" system to link up with and control the Orchis mobile weapon component. The arms also each incorporated a large, folding manipulator arm, which was used to retrieve the Stamen's own weapons from their storage racks in the Orchis' weapons container pods. The GP03S Stamen was completed at Anaheim's Von Braun City factory and delivered to their La Vie En Rose research dockship, where the Orchis component had also been completed. The only thing left to make the GP03 field-ready was piloting and combat data. On November 11, the mobile assault carrier Albion arrives at La Vie En Rose, and its crew commandeer the Gundam GP03 as a replacement for the destroyed GP01. Over the next two days, pilot Kou Uraki repeatedly takes this experimental superweapon into battle against the Delaz Fleet. Both the Stamen and Orchis components appear to survive the conflict intact, but their final disposition is unknown, and all records of them are erased in March of the following year.Source:angelfire.com
Awesome HG kit of the all-powerful and intimidating Gundam GP02A as appeared in the MS Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory OVA. It's a simple snap-fit plastic kit of GP02A that comes with all of its weapons used in the OVA including the giant bazooka and a super thick shield. Included in this kit is a display stand that can hold GP02A as if it's floating in space. The display base also allows for another stand attachment where GP01 (sold separately) can be attached for a beam saber fight display with GP02A as seen in the OVA series. Technology & Combat Characteristics As described in the MG model manual and MS encyclopedia, during the postwar years the Federation received information that the Zeon remnants could have been developing mobile suits with nuclear capabilities. As a countermeasure, the Federation decided to develop a nuclear capable mobile suit of their own, and the result was the RX-78GP02A Gundam Physalis. While the production and development of the RX-78GP02A was a violation of the Antarctic Treaty, it's a moot point at best. The Antarctic Treaty was signed by the Principality of Zeon which was replaced by the Republic of Zeon, following the end of the One Year War, rendering the treaty itself an agreement with a now non-existent government. Delaz cited the RX-78GP02A as a violation of the Antarctic Treaty primarily to illustrate the underhanded dealings of the Earth Federation. Despite being one of the largest Gundams in UC history by armor volume, the GP02A is highly maneuverable. Besides the nuclear warhead, the Physalis is armed with standard head-mounted vulcan guns and two torso- mounted beam sabers, which when activated glow green instead of the normal pink. The GP02 was designed to possibly work in tandem with is sister unit, the GP01. It carried extensive heat and radiation shielding to protect it from nuclear blasts, as well as the standard Federation mobile suit armaments for defense. Mounted on the shoulder binders of the Physalis were a set of high power thrusters, three on each binder, which contributed to the exceptional maneuverability of the MS. The Physalis, however, is at a disadvantage if the nuclear bazooka were ever destroyed in battle, as it could only rely on its thick armor, large shield, and beam sabers for protection, and could be destroyed easily at long range. In the hands of a skilled pilot, the Physalis may be able to overcome these disadvantages. Reviews on GP02 HG 1/144
The RX-78GP01-Fb Gundam "Zephyranthes" Full Burnern (Often mistranslated as "Gundam "Zephyranthes" Full Vernian") is the upgraded space use version of the RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes". It is featured in the anime OVA series Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory. The unit is piloted by Kou Uraki.
The RGM-79Q GM Quel is the first mass-produced mobile suit created by the Titans special forces, used during the organization's early stages mainly for peacekeeping, riot control and suppression purposes inside space colonies. It can be said that a clear line could be drawn, performance wise, between the more advanced GM Quel and the other mass-produced service models used within the common ranks of the EFSF, signifying the elite status of the Titans unit.
