Brief outline of Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin is a prequel series to the original 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam, set in the early years of the Universal Century (UC) timeline. It dives into the origins of key characters and the evolution of iconic mobile suits.

Main characters include Char Aznable, known as the "Red Comet," a skilled pilot and tactician with a tragic past, and Amuro Ray, the protagonist of the original series and a gifted Newtype pilot. The series also explores the background of Sayla Mass, Char's sister who later joins the Earth Federation's White Base crew, and Ramba Ral, a loyal Zeon soldier with a strong rivalry against Char.

Iconic mobile suits featured in the series are the legendary RX-78-2 Gundam, piloted by Amuro Ray, and Char's custom MS-06S Zaku II Commander Type. Other noteworthy suits include Sayla Mass's RX-77-2 Guncannon and Ramba Ral's MS-07B Gouf.

By delving into the early years of the UC timeline, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin provides a fresh perspective on the Gundam universe, its characters, and the development of iconic mobile suits.

Origin closely follows the original designs of 0079 while updating them to the modern standards of detailing of current series, which is why many of the original suits feature both their 0079 version and the reimagined The Origin kits. One of the strong points of these model kits are the posability, featuring a wide range of articulation.

Some of the kits we'd recommend, in order of ascending order of affordability and complexity would be:
