1/100 Scale Prototype "Gundam" Plastic Model to be Released 31 Years after Creation

To be released in April

Bandai’s official online store, Premium Bandai, will be releasing a 1/100 scale plastic model kit of the RX-78-1 Prototype Gundam.



The RX-78-1 was the first Prototype Gundam figure to be released, part of the MSV (“Mobile Suit Variation”) series of official designs based on the original mobile suits. A 1/144 scale model was released in 1983 at the height of the Gundam plastic model trend, and a 1/100 scale version is being released 31 years later as part of the “Master Grade” kit series. The model kit faithfully reproduces the parts and colors in detail characteristic of the Master Grade series, resulting in a finished product that reproduces the dynamic action of Gundam.

The kit retails for 4,536 yen, including tax. It will be released in April.
