Gundam Age television series was aired around the period when Unicorn Gundam OVA was released. Gundam Age kind of got beaten down. However IMHO, this under-rated anime had plot that kept audiences going although it started slow paced. At least, I understand this anime stretched over 3-pilot-generations better 'G Reconguista'.
Ultimately, Gundam Age aimed to nurture young audience to liking Gundam hence Bandai introduced 1/100 scale figure of the main suit, Gundam AGE-1. The AGE-1 normal be disassembled allowing you to swap legs and arms with other suits from the Gage-ing Builder series. It also comes with its signature shield, beam rifle, and a Gage-ing card. It's kinda nice if you don't mind having too many visible screws and lacked of proportionality.
After all, it's for playing and be treated like an action figure. Bandai Namco added more entertainment with BG (Gage-ing Builder), which carry 'Gage-ing Chip' circuitry which, when scanned by the Gage-ing Link system, allow models and figures alike to compete on the same field. Using devices like the free-play Gage-ing Battle Base kiosk, planned for installation at arcades and selective hobby shops. Mainly for domestic market. I only saw them locally at Gunpla Expo and Toy'R'Us when the toy line was newly launched.
