Colorful, inexpensive, and relatively easy to build, High Grade Gunpla models are great gifts for Gundam-loving friends. Whether the gift recipient is just getting into Gunpla or an old pro, building a High Grade is a fun way for anyone to spend an afternoon. There are sooooo many High Grade Gunpla out there—more than any other grade!—so it was hard to pick just a few favorites.
We’re still undecided on whether Gundam Reconguista in G is any good as a show, but John and I have already agreed that the pointy-eared G-Self is totally badass. A standard red, yellow, blue, and white frame is given new life with shiny, clear-blue details.
One of the most unusual looking Gunpla models there is. With its flame-colored frame, nobody will miss this Zeydra in a lineup.
Red and green just in time for Christmas! Fenice probably gets its red, white, and green color scheme from the heritage of its Italian pilot, Ricardo Fellini, but it also makes a perfect seasonal gift.
Stiletto heels and an orchid color scheme give this flamboyant Gundam an unusual silhouette. Great for the builder who has everything.
Who says Zakus are boring grunt units? Between purple armor, a formidable heat hawk weapon, and an enormously beefed up frame, this custom truly lives up to the pun in its name—that it is 1000 times stronger than a Zaku F2.
