The 14 Best Gundam Models in October 2022

In the world of model building, Gundam is a force to be reckoned with. These snap-together kits have become a mainstay for any model enthusiast or expert willing to put in the time and effort required to assemble them. They’re not just for kids, though; these models appeal to adults and young people alike because of their complexity and scope for customization. However, that doesn’t mean they’re easy to build. Building a Gundam kit correctly requires patience and attention to detail, which makes it an excellent hobby for older kids who are old enough to handle the complex design but young enough to maintain focus on such a detailed project. Here are some of the best Gundam models on the market right now.

FAQs

How many Perfect Grade Gundams are there?

There are only 30 units of the Perfect Grade Gundams ever produced worldwide. The standard model is the PG-01 (orange) and the variant is the PG-01(blue).

What is the granddaddy of Gundam models?

The granddaddy of Gundam models is the original Gundam model, the RX-78-2. It’s the main mobile suit in the 1979 anime series Mobile Suit Gundam. The kit was released in June, 1978 and was a big hit. The kit was manufactured by Bandai and the box art artist was Yoshikazu Yasuhiko.

What is the difference between Hg and RG Gundam kits?

The best HG kits are ones that are fun to build and play with. Unfortunately, they're a bit more expensive than the average starter kit and are a bit more complicated to build. But if you're a step up from the average consumer, then you can enjoy the added detail and complexity of the RG kits while still building a fun model.

What Gunpla should I start with?

This is an awesome starter kit. It's the perfect size for a beginner to be able to handle and learn proper techniques. I recommend the HGUC version of the RX-78-2 Gundam, as it's the more popular model. If you don't want a Gundam, they also sell a lot of other awesome Gunpla kits.
