Super Deformed: Ryuubi Gundam Model Kit #300 - SOLD OUT
Ryuubi Gundam marks the 300th release in Bandai's BB Senshi series and also the start of their exciting new "BB Senshi Sangokuden Fuuun Gouketsu Hen" plastic model kit line! Inspired by Liu Bei from the original Chinese epic, Ryuubi Gundam is nicely detailed and comes armed with his Garyuutou (red) and Souryuutou (blue) swords that can be stored on his back, plus a secret Ryuuteiken (yellow) sword! Foil stickers are included and painting is not required, though it would add a more realistic appearance. A big-sized full-color poster featuring six "BB Senshi Sangokuden" characters is included along with a black-and-white manga chapter, drawn by Kouichi Tokita, printed on the back of the poster! All text is in Japanese. Hailing from Bandai's "BB Senshi Sangokuden Fuuun Gouketsu Hen" ("BB Warrior Romance Of The Three Kingdoms: Gathering of the Heroes Chapter"), this kit is inspired by the story and characters from Chinese literary classic "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." Each character in this series of easy-to-assemble snap-fit plastic kits features polycap joints, detachable armor parts, and heel stamps with the character's name etched into both heels for you to stamp on anything you like when stamp dye (not included) is applied to the heels! A full-color manga chapter drawn by PLEX Tatsuhiko Shimoda is also included (printed on the assembly instructions sheet) with each kit in the series.
Super Deformed models, known as Gundam Superior Defenders on the American market, are Bandai's mini model kit line created to amuse and entertain Gundam model kit builders. The words "super deformed" really define the entire line. Each kit is a small, ready-to-assemble caricature of either a real mecha from the Gundam series or an imaginary one. The models all come with some kind of weapon (sword, cannon, ball-and-chain, etc.), and several --but not all-- have a gimmick (transformation into a different mode, a missile shooter that actually launches plastic projectiles like hands and bombs, extra mini hands for grasping additional weapons, etc.)
The Super Deformed models are all molded in color and feature snap assembly, so no paint or glue is needed to complete them. Stickers are included for the details. Like all Bandai Japan kits, the instructions for assembly are in Japanese, but they feature clear, easy-to-follow pictures. The Super Deformed model kits vary in size from about 2.5 - 3.5 inches tall.
The Super Deformed line is perfect for children--and old-school Gundam fans who want a good chuckle. With over 200 crazy characters, you can easily and quickly create your own Gundam army! So check out these terrific little kits; they're definitely big fun with a small price tag!
