Unboxing the GM Sniper

Next off, the 1/100 scale Master Grade GM Sniper from Bandai. I got this because I particularly like the GM series of mecha in Gundam, and this particular kit has lots of weapons.

The GM Sniper figured in the mini-series Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th MS Team, where a team of ground-oriented gundam prototypes of the Earth Federation fought against an experimental Zeon warship, the Apsalus. A group of GM Snipers helped in taking out the Apsalus, though they gained notoriety for shooting down a transport of battle-weary Zeon troops who wanted no more fighting.

Taking the box top off reveals not just the kit, but some inserts, perhaps for promos that certainly won't apply to this country (the Philippines).

It has lots of sprues, meaning there's lots of exciting stuff to assemble. But it'll be quick, since this is snap-fit kit, unlike the Centurion.

The instructions are in color, nice to look at while sitting on the throne:

Frankly, I'm not sure what to with it. Maybe I'll paint it into a desert version, with some cloaks wrapped around it. But anyway, it's something to do later on.
