I would like to share with you my recent straight-built MG RX-78GP01Fb Zephyranthes. This model kit was released by Bandai in 1997 and was recently reissued.
Despite the old technology, this is a very nice kit to have and I do recommend this ;)
Original: Gundam 0083 Stardust Memories
- Head/Neck: Moderate movement.
- Shoulders: Good movement :) the shoulder armor/thrusters does not create any hinderance ;)
- Elbows: Excellent as always :)
- Wrist/Hand: Good movement!
- Lower body/Torso: Moderate movement.
- Hip: Forward/backward movement is excellent but side movement is pretty limited.
- Knee: Good :)
- Ankle/Leg: Good :)
- Plastics quality is good ;)
- Movement and pose-ability is moderate as this is 1997 technology!
- Colour separation is very nice for a 1997 kit! Even some smaller parts are moldded individually and is verry good if you are those who like to colour your kit ;)
- The red colour is a bit odd, especially the feet...
- The leg joints is lacking in holding power due to old technology...
- This is a very nice kit nontheless, and I like it very much ;)
- The weaponry department is the disappointment of this kit... only come with a nice shield, a moderate beam rifle, and the standard beam saber.
