Bandai’s MG series “Gundam AGE-1” has released the long-awaited full-gransa extension parts set in January 2023. On this page, I will introduce the procedure and key points based on my actual experience of temporary assembly, painting, and weathering. Please refer to this page as you will be able to enjoy making more realistic Gunpla by using techniques such as gradation painting, shadow spraying, and chipping.
An extended parts set for Bandai’s plastic model “MG Series Gundam AGE-1 Full Gransa” will be released in January 2023. This parts set can be attached to the separately sold “MG 1/100 Gundam AGE-1 Normal” to reproduce the final form of the Full Gransa. Under the supervision of mechanical designer Kanetake Ebikawa, the newly sculpted parts provide a more realistic and massive appearance. Also included are removable upgrade parts and newly designed water-transferable decals.
The “Full Granza” is the AGE-1 equipped with additional armor, a Grastro launcher, and a shield rifle. This figure represents the growth process of the main character, Flit Asuno, as he fights, and is a further enhanced version of the AGE-1, which evolves itself through the AGE system.
The “Full Granza” plastic model comes in two versions: MG (Master Grade) and HG (High Grade), with the MG version featuring additional armor and weapons newly designed under the supervision of mechanical designer Kanetake Ebikawa. The HG version, on the other hand, is reproduced in a more simplified form as an entry model that can be created relatively easily.
AGE-1 made last year
This is AGE-1, the first main character in Gundam AGE. To be honest, I have never seen it before, but my son saw it on DVD at the time and liked it so much that he requested that I build it. It is a fairly simple kit, so I made it quickly. This is a record of the process of making the Gundam AGE-1.
It is finally completed.
Considerably increased volume The slim AGE-1 now has a macho look!
Grasstro Launcher By replacing the tip of the launcher, the Zephrd launcher used in the Asem version can be reproduced by replacement, and I painted it just in case.
I had made it by accident a year ago, so this time I only made the extension parts. It was supposed to be a quick and easy project, but it took almost a month to complete.
It is a pity that I lost the hand parts because I had given it to my son once… and the parts for the beam saber are missing too.
It was easy to assemble because you can assemble it block by block. In addition, each piece is heavy enough to hold with a painting clip, so it was easy to proceed with the painting.
Thank you very much for seeing this to the end.
Next, I will finally go on to build the MGEX Strike Freedom that I bought at the end of 2022.
