Was navigating one day threw youtube when I stumbled across an intro of Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, tears almost came to my eyes cause I remembered watching commercials about this on satellite television when I was still kid around my 7 or 8 years old. While watching the intro one thing that attracted me was the song, typical song of the 80’s early 90’s which I love, especially since it was the second intro song “Men of Destiny” by MIO it was just awesome, so I decided to get my hands on the full OVA series ^^.
Haven’t watched many Gundam series, only a few episodes of Gundam Wing and Endless Waltz movie, the full Seed series and a couple of Seed Destiny (still watching) and let me tell you…… Stardust Memory the best gundam series I’ve seen so far, I just love these classic cartoon draws, the characters look more human than these new ones which is based on to much fantasy (which I like to) and still prefer some of the classic ones.
Bandai launched many Gundam kits of Stardust Memory, some HG, MG and a PG. Currently the ones I only recommend are the HGUC ones and the PG, the MGs are a bit old and the joints aren’t so strong. The HGUC are small, only on 1/144 scale but I recommend them since I have the GP02A Type-MLRS Physalis which is an advanced version of the GP02A that appears on the arcade game MS Gundam: Bonds of the Battlefield and it’s very sturdy, good joints and good for posing even on a 1/144 scale.
