Even though Gundam is the main focus during the One Year War, we must never forget that the war was fought mainly by the GM & Ball which served as the bread & butter of E.F.F's primary strike force in space. E.F.S.F had this excellent strategy of using Ball as long range artillery in bombarding Zeon's MS before GM close in to engage them. The value of GM and Ball clearly must not be underrated. Since the two complimented each other so well, Bandai had this brilliant plan to sell them together as a set in their MSIA line. The GM figure comes with optional hands, standard shield, spray gun and rifle. Ball has hyper-bazooka attached on top and ball joints for the hands. Produced in year 2000, this toy is more than a decade old.
