Growing up in Japan in the 80’s, one of my favorite toys (other than LEGO, of course) was little plastic models of the SD Gundam characters. Moko (Flickr) might be a bit younger than I am, but we do share a love of these adorable little mecha.
Don’t be deceived by the diminutive source material — this is a substantial model with an amazing amount of detail. Just look at the subtle grooves around Gundam’s mouth!
The full load-out is also impressive:

Holy Crap! I knew Moko was good but this is almost indistinguishable from a model. I don’t even like mechs cause of how ridiculously over done and played out they are but this is a fantastic MOC.
