Rev #3 - 1:144 Scale Gundam

The very first kits have been running for 30 years (starting with RX-78-2 Gundam) and are routinely re-released by Bandai. As these kits are limited in articulation and require glue (for the early kits) and paint to assemble, these have retroactively been categorized as NG (No Grade), to differentiate them from FG (First Grade). 

During the mid- to late-1980s, the quality of molding improved and HG (High Grade) level kits were introduced in 1990, starting from the titular mobile suits of the first four TV series. These limited-run kits featured full snap-fit assembly, an "internal frame" (for the first two kits, which provides better range of motion and were more poseable), and utilized the molding technique known as System Injection, wherein multiple colors would be cast on the same part.

In 2010, RG (Real Grade) surpassed HG as the top-end series of the 1:144 Gunpla line. These kits feature extensive detail and articulation, as well as a poseable skeletal frame comparable to the 1:100 Master Grade kits. The first RG kit was the 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam, followed by the 1/144 MS-06S Char's Zaku II, GAT-X105 Aile Strike, MS-06F Zaku II (Green), ZGMF-X10A Freedom, and FX-550 Skygrasper [Launcher/Sword Pack]. Additional releases in this line are planned through 2011.

For today's blog we're not talking about NG, FG and RG. Just specialized for 1:144 scale for High Grade. Bandai was produced a lots of HG's gundams and it was categorized based on the movie itself. So far for 1:144 HG Gundams I have only for 4 series: 00 Gundam series, Unicorn Gundam series, GPB Gundam series, and Char's Counter Attacks Gundam series.  

1. The last 1:144 HG Gundam was I made from 00 Gundam series was HG Susanowo. I like the color and the articulation was very interesting. This model I thought was made based on the Samurai cloth and armor in Japanese tradition. I like the story about its pilot also for sure. And for details info was located in: http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/GNX_Susanowo.

2. The second last HG I was made coming from Unicorn Gundam series named Sinanju. The color is red and somehow peoples said this gundam character as Red Comet. Very impressive. I like how it's look like. This is one of my favorite gundams. The more details please look in: http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/MSN-06S_Sinanju.

3. The next is a HG coming from GPB Gundam series named Sazabi BPD Color. It was re-colored from red to white color. Some peoples said this gundam was rare. I just fortunately found it somewhere in Jakarta. This one was predecessor of Sinanju (based of the Universal Centuries story). The details about this gundam character can be found in: http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/MSN-04_Sazabi.

4. And the last gundam character from Char's Counter Attacks Gundam series named Hi-Nu Gundoom. This model is not from Bandai production but from MC Models production. Actually peoples said for HG MC Models is not exactly 1: model. But it could be like 1:132 something. That means the high of models was a bit higher than HG 1:144 Bandai production. The 6 x fin funnels that was located in its back pack was awesome and really impressive wings. The details for this character is in: http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/RX-93-2_Hi-Nu_Gundam.
