Bandai 1/100 MG YMS-15 Gyan

A Master Grade... Gyan. Well, though the Gundam mopped the proverbial floor with it in the series, the MG kit itself is actually pretty impressive. Featuring the version 2.0 frame designed by Bandai, the kit also comes with a gimmicky beam sabre that will light up with an LED (powered by a watch-type battery, not included), plus the shield, hide bomb, and all the other Gyan armament -- including a 1/20 scale unpainted figure of M'Quve.

Assembly Guide

Skill Level.2 Basic modeling skills are required. Parental supervision may be required for younger children. These kits are generally suitable for beginner builders. A basic set of modeling tools are required including nippers, hobby knife, sanding sticks/paper, file, and tweezers. No glue is needed for the general assembly. Parts will need to be removed by using a pair of nippers and cutting the part away from the runner. Parts may require clean-up where they were removed from the runner.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are a snap together assembly and do not need plastic cement to complete. We always recommend having some plastic cement handy as a part of your modeler's tool kit. If you prefer to fix your model in a particular pose then plastic cement will work. Plastic cement is also perfect to use if a joint is loose. Apply plastic cement in a single thin layer and allow it to dry completely before test fitting. Re-apply more cement if necessary.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are designed to be built and displayed without the need for painting. Kits are molded in different colours replicating the colours of the actual mecha from the Gundam series. A technique called colour separation, where multiple parts of the model are molded in different colours on the same sprue is also used. Gundam kits often include stickers or water-slide decals that can be applied to the model to enhance its appearance. Some Gunpla kits come with pre-painted parts or parts with pre-applied details, such as metallic or translucent finishes.

Many modelers still choose to paint their kits to customize and add further detail. Painting allows for more creativity and personalization, enabling modelers to achieve unique effects, weathering, and colour schemes that may not be available out of the box. However, the kits are designed to be enjoyable and visually appealing even without painting, making them accessible to a wide range of hobbyists.

A Legend 'wait for it' dary MG

To start off, this kit is a solid build for a 2006 release.
A smooth easy going build, with some moments of- 'what in the name Char am I building here?'
The battery for light up beam sabre is not included which for some will be disappointing. However the 2 different options for said sabre (LED or standard) is always welcoming option to have in a MG.

As always if you haven't got this kit, then what are you waiting for?

A great addition to break away from a sea of gundam

This is a fun but simple build that will satisfy you at the end once it's all completed. If you like to change poses of your gunpla's then this is a must have for your shelf. It's built very solid and I've had no issues changing it around. The only thing wanting would be an addition of an LED light up feature to the head to complete the look with the light up beam saber.
