MG RX-78GP01Fb Zephyranthes (Bandai)

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 ;)

Manufacturer: Bandai
Scale: 1/100
Grade: MG
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 :)

General Characteristics
  • 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.
