We don't see a lot of chrome coated Mobile Suits in the past and I would say Hyaku Shiki is the first for Gundam series even though at that era the anime could only illustrate it in yellow. Well, Bandai did produced both two version of Hyaku Shiki in Master Grade kit. The yellow version came with ballute system (orbit entrance gear) and the chrome coated version is what in my collection. MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki odename: 'δ Gundam' (Delta Gundam) is a mobile suit built by Anaheim Electronics as part of the 'Zeta Project', It's more like a by product of Zeta and in 'Unicorn Gundam', we see Delta Plus as its predecessor. If you break the words 'Hyaku Shiki', 'Hyaku' basically means "hundred" like the model number MSN-00100 suggested and 'Shiki' is interpreted as 'Shiny'. The epic moment of Hyaku Shiki is really its smooth surface deflecting laser beam when shot at.


It's incorporated with the "movable frame" technology found in the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. The Hyaku Shiki becomes the main mobile suit of Quattro Bajeena (aka Char Aznable) until the end of the Gryps Conflict. It is badly damaged following a confrontation between Char and Haman Karn of Axis Zeon at the end of the series. The suit is later recovered, repaired, and used during Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ primarily by Beecha Oleg. My collection is kind of lay back as you can see I don't have MG Hyaku Shiki version 2.0. 

Nonetheless, I'm happy to have the version since the kit had be assembled and in my opinion more than decent for display. Despite that the waist was not as small, not as proportional less sleek legs and pointy feet. Both the beam rifle and bazooka can be latched on the jet pack. It has a unique beam saber that that is translucent yellow while most other beams are pinkish red. Striking gold plated pieces have very fine sprue attachment points to make assembly easy. Just use care in removing the numerous perfectly plated gold pieces from the tree. As usual with a Bandai MG series everything moves via poly-cap joints. Leg and arm armor can be removed. It's a real attention-getter on display.

HEHE... I do know what you mean when you mentioned "a real attention-getter", since I have the Shiranui Akatsuki Gundam, in HG kit and it happens to have the same golden plate external finishing, that truly stands out among the rest of my kits !!!...

This Zeta Gundam Series has an incredible turn of events, since the pilot of the Hyaku Shiki is Char Aznable (!!!???) and you expect him to be to be part of Zeon faction, right ???... =OOOOO

Akatsuki kind of take the concept of Hyaku Shiki. Akatsuki is a real hard to get nowadays. Both will truly blind anyone and shine on display. Lolz... Indeed, Zeta is a true turn of event.. It's unexpected of Char to be Quattro Bajeena and later lead Neo Zeon.
