Zeta Gundam was broadcast on Japanese TV during '84/85, following up the original series with a whole new set of characters and machines. Not surprisingly, the robot of the same name was the main piece of hardware in the show. This new show also introduced the "transformation" concept to Gundam, and the Zeta does an impressive one, switching from robot mode to "Wave Rider" mode in the wink of an eye. Perhaps more impressive is the fact the this Master Grade kit can also make this transformation without a single piece having to be removed or replaced on it (not counting the shield/nose piece, but that's true to the show). This version of the 1/100 MG Zeta Gundam is the test version as it appeared at Anaheim Electronics during the initial phases of the project. Eight full-size runners with hundreds of multi-colored parts make this kit a serious assembly project, but it goes together very smoothly. Besides the transformation capability, the kit includes all kinds of other goodies. As usual, everything moves. Even those antenna on its forehead fold up. Three sets of hands are included -- fists, open palm, and posable. Also includes the usual "beam saber" sword, dual Vulcan cannon, beam rifle and shield. All of Bandai's MG (as well as HG) kits are completely snap-together, and parts are molded in color, so no painting is necessary. Of course, the use of cement and paints will improve the appearance of a finished model. Many of the surface markings are printed right onto the plastic parts to begin with, but the kit includes replacement transfers for those people who wish to paint their work.

For its age this has to be one of the better Gundams sitting on my shelf. The design is sharp and clean, and the size of this 1/100 is impressive. It's also a very simple build, good after doing a few complex MGs. Not too many small parts so very convenient to airbrush.
Older kit with a lot of visual appeal. It won't hold up to constant reposing or re-transforming, however, so plan on keeping it on the shelf.
its more of an orange and legs are a bit tricky but all in all a good MG
