The myth. The legend. The Federation's White Devil. The Gundam--not any Gundam, THE Gundam. The very first. Designated RX-78, this machine represented the hope that the war with the Principality of Zeon could come to an end. The Gundam was the Federation's most powerful weapon.
Armed with a devastating beam rifle, the hyper bazooka, vulcan guns, and two of the first ever beam sabers, the Gundam was a force to be reckoned with. Amuro Ray piloted this machine throughout most of the war until its destruction in a climactic battle with Char in the pilot's seat of the Zeong.
Here it is, folks. Grandpa Gundam, the progenitor of all our favorite mecha, the iconic figure in animation which gave rise to a new sub-genre. It's an older kit, so it doesn't articulate very well. But it looks good atop my entertainment center with its brother kits. 😁
