MSIA Dendrobium RX-78GP03 | 750mm Gundam Figure | Review

What we are going to review today is the MSIA Dendrobium RX-78GP03. This mobile armor came from the Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory series. This toy figure was released by Bandai in the market on the year 2001 for around 10,000 yen. This is the second largest Dendrobium (around 1/172 scale) that you will get next to the HG 1/144 version. It is around 750mm or 29.5 inches when completely built. Has a lot of movable parts, easy to build and weighs a hefty 4-5 kilos I think. Most of the time, items this old have some form of discoloration due to old age. But still, big MSIA figures are hard to find nowadays, so if you find one get it and just rehab the discoloration.

STAND

I needed to build this early so I could put the other finished parts on the stand because they are already very heavy and can not stand on two feet. :))

  1. Nice details on the Orchis 🙂 Although I’m kinda bothered by the Head of the MS. 
    But overall, it’s still great. I might get this one, (If I ever stumble upon it somewhere) considering the price of the HG :))
