RX-78 GP01 Fb by AleximusPrime RX-78 GP01 Fb by AleximusPrime
The full name is actually RX-78 GP01 Fb Gundam Full Vernian/Burnern "Zephyranthes" but odds are DA would not permit that due to the character limit. :3

So yeah, I just got this guy in the mail and he was so awesome I had to go outside on this beautiful day and take some pics. This is actually what Hyper Captain Gundam from "Superior Defender Gundam Force" is loosely based off of and the standard Captain Gundam is based off of the standard GP01 which lacks the big jet wings. This is the upgraded GP01.

It comes with a beam rifle, 2 beam swords, a shield, and his mid-section transforms into the 'core fighter' which is a neat little feature. This is also an action figure, not a model kit, so he's already put together and painted. Not available in stores anymore sadly, you'll have to try eBay, that's where I got mine.

For more pics of this guy, visit these pages on my Tumblr: iamaleximusprime.tumblr.com/po… iamaleximusprime.tumblr.com/po…

I have the SD Shining and Burning Gundams coming in the mail soon too, I'll be sure to show them off.

I dunno why, but the proportions and the whole dwarf thing is really amusing. Giggle

Never thought you're a Gundam fan. Awesome. 

And yeah, this Gundam is actually from Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory. Kou Uraki piloted this when the GP01 got its butt kicked in space. THe Full Vernian mode was added to allow better maneuverability in Space. It did well, even going up against the GP02 Physalis. Sadly the mobile suit got destroyed along with the GP02.

I used to own Gundam action figures myself such as Wing Zero, Altron and Endless Waltz Wing Zero.

Well the only series I've seen is SD Gundam Force but yeah, Gundams are freaking awesome!

Ah, interesting story.  :iconcoolstorybroplz:  XD  I am interested in watching another Gundam show soon though.  Which do you recommend I start out with?

And are these the MSIA ones you're talking about?

If there's any Gundam series you should start with, start with the original Mobile Suit Gundam featuring the all-mighty RX-78-2 Gundam piloted by Amuro Ray.

and I like SD Gundam Force. Some of the episodes are rather hilarious and they pay tribute to other Gundam shows like the original Gundam and Gundam Wing.

Ah.  When did that show come out?

Yeah, that's what I like about it.  I love how the characters are all based on a specific Gundam model but with lots of tweaks (ex: Zero is the Wing Gundam but with a knight-like appearance and a cape instead of actual wings) and I love how it references a lot of different Gundam shows.  It's like the Transformers Animated of the Gundam franchise!  :3

Mobile Suit Gundam first came out in 1979 I believe. Good times but it didn't hit the US shores until 2000 after the release of Gundam Wing and G Gundam.

As for SD Gundam, I think it was in 2002.
