Along with a new Gundam Anime - Gundam AGE- Bandai introduces a new line of kits called Advanced Grade. These kits are similar to the older 'First Grade' kits in that no polycaps are used for joints, rather the armor is attached to a simple frame. These kits also come with the Gage-ing chip that lets you use the kit wih the Gundam AGE game at the game arcade. Assembly is short and sweet as sidecutters are not necessary thanks to Bandai's runner design. Don't miss the other kits in this series.
