User Content (UC) : G Gundam Vs. Gundam Wing
Submitted By : the13thprince
Here’s a blast from the past.
These Gundams are from the Gundam Wing and G Gundam Series, my first exposure to Gundam and the reason I started with Gunpla.
Both G Gundam and Gundam Wing came out during the 90s and these kits are NO GRADE 1/144 SCALE. The plastic used was sturdy enough and the polycaps made for decent enough articulation. Unfortunately the G Gundam kits having been produced a year before the Gundam Wing Kits have no waist articulation with the exception of the Shining Gundam shown here.
These are all straight build kits so only foil stickers and panel linings were applied. They do come with their trademark accessories though Gundam Maxter and Dragon Gundam did fell short as they are missing a couple accessories. Gundam Maxter did not come with his surf board/shield and Dragon Gundam is missing his spear.
Also note that both Gundam Shenlong and Dragon Gundam can extend their limbs however, limited model tech back in 1994 disabled this feature for the Dragon Gundam. Gundam Wing can also convert into its bird-mode which is a fairly simple transformation and is true to the anime. All of the G-Gundam kits also have detachable core fighters which serve as their back packs.
For starter kits these kits are great considering the amount of articulation and detail they have compared to the FG kits from Gundam Seed and Gundam 00. I highly recommend these kits for the beginners, provided you can still find them today since it’s been 15 years since they were first released.
