Bandai’s New Entry Grade Releases

Entry Grade

Ohhh boy.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Entry Grade series… or has it? We’re a little unsure if this is the same line Bandai had about 20 years ago that pumped out a couple simple Gundam for beginners. But there are a lot of similarities — except today, they aren’t Gundam.

I’ll be doing this post a little differently today so we can cover all three kits. Let’s get to it!

Little Kits, Little Boxes

Entry Grade Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Son Goku

That’s my hand. And I have small hands. I just like how small the boxes are — about the size of a regular Haropla, I’d say. Nice and compact, easy for shipping!

Age Ratings

Because these kits are intended for beginners (kids, specifically), Bandai has prominent age ratings right on the box. Our Dragon Ball friends are for ages 6+, while Kamen Rider goes as low as 3+!

Similar to the Pokemon kits I’ve reviewed, Bandai shows the runners on the side of the box, as well as how easy these kits are to assemble. You don’t even need nippers.


Four runners, mostly consisting of big parts with a few small pieces, and two pretty simple stickers.


Four runners, no stickers. As you probably noticed by now, these kits aren’t really here for the articulation.

Kamen Rider Zero-One Rising Hopper

Now I think this one is the most interesting. While the Kamen Rider kit’s body is basically formed in two big parts, there are several smaller parts that may be difficult for 3 year olds to handle (and not eat, depending on if your 3 year old is still into that). The stickers, too, are smaller and may be harder for those little hands to put on well.

But hey — these kits are about having fun and learning model building. Of course, we (and probably Bandai) recommend working on these kits with your child, so you can enjoy the experience together and help out with any frustrations that may arise with small parts or stickers!

That said, you absolutely don’t have to be a kid to build these if you just want a cheap, displayable kit that takes no time or tools to build. There’s no age limit on model kits!

Get yours here:

Her favorite lines are Hasegawa's Mechatro WeGo line, Meng's World War Toons Pinky line, and weird miscellany like Platz's bonsai tree kits. In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.

  1. Kinda like these, but I’m waiting for the Entry Grade Doraemon.
