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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's unique about the Gundam Griepe design?

The Gundam Griepe stands out with its heavy armor and menacing appearance. Its defining features include: Thick, spiked shoulder armor: These bulky pauldrons give the Griepe an intimidating presence and hint at its immense physical strength. Multi-pronged head vulcans: Instead of the usual twin vulcans, the Griepe has a three-pronged head cannon, adding a unique visual element and potentially increased firepower. Large beam saber backpack: The Griepe carries its massive beam saber in a backpack mount, showcasing its reliance on close-quarters combat and brute force.

Is the NG Gundam Griepe a complex kit to build?

The Griepe falls under Bandai's NG category, known for simpler construction compared to HG or RG kits. It uses snap-fit assembly, eliminating glue, and the parts are generally larger and less intricate. This makes it a good choice for beginners or those who prefer a quicker build.

Does the Griepe come with any weapons or accessories?

Yes, the Griepe comes with its signature armament: Large beam saber: As mentioned earlier, this imposing weapon is the Griepe's primary melee tool. Beam rifle and shield: For ranged combat, the Griepe has a standard beam rifle and shield combo. Optional beam bazooka: Some versions of the kit might include an additional beam bazooka for heavy firepower options.

How poseable is the Gundam Griepe?

The Griepe's articulation is on the basic side, focusing on major joints like the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. The bulky armor might slightly limit movement in certain areas, but it still allows for posing in various attack stances and dynamic displays.

Are there any downsides to consider?

While the Griepe's simplicity makes it beginner-friendly, it also means less detail and articulation compared to more advanced kits. Additionally, the bulky armor might not appeal to everyone, and the color scheme is primarily gray, requiring painting for a more vibrant look.
