While the V Gundam line of models is an “old school” line, these High Grade 1/100’s do have some nice details for the economical price. Stickers are included for added detailing. Weapons and/or shields come with all models, and all of the models with a "V" in their name also transform. Each model is pre-colored and snap-together, so paint and glue are not needed to complete it. Like all Bandai Japan models, the instructions for assembly are in Japanese, but they feature very clear, easy-to-follow pictures. The model is brand new, and its parts are completely sealed.
