What Are Gundam Kits Called?
Few universes are quite as complex or popular as Gundam. Viewers were first introduced to the world in 1979 when the very first episode of the Japanese anime television series aired on television. Over the past half a century, Gundam enthusiasts have been fortunate enough to experience their favourite world through a variety of mediums, including film, video games, novels, and plastic model kits — or Gunpla.
Gundam model kits are available in a variety of complexity levels, known as grades. These grades refer to the size and scale of the models as well as their complexity.
If you have never built a Gundam kit before, you might want to start with a slightly easier model, like the Real Grade. These Gunpla — like the RG Unicorn Gundam — generally stand at around 13cm tall and are realistic without being too expensive or difficult to build.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the Master Grade. Master Grade Gunpla — including the MG Gundam Dynames — are incredibly intricate and come with many parts that can take hours to put together.
Regardless of your skill and experience level, there’s a Gundam model kit for everyone.
How Many Gundam Model Kits Are There?
As it currently stands, there are over 2,000 Gundam model kits available. The range is always expanding as more timelines, universes, and characters are unveiled.
Each model has distinct characteristics and is designed to replicate the real-world Gunpla as closely as possible. If authenticity is important to you, we encourage you to also check out our range of Gundam decals, which are easy to apply and can take your Gunpla to the next level.
Hobbyco stocks a broad range of Gundam model kits for super fans and those just looking for an entertaining way to spend an afternoon.
