Long awaited mass production since the era of B-Club conversion resin. Took Bandai quite a while for Bandai to realise how badly GM fans, like me has endured to get my hands on this glorious RGM-79SP GM Sniper II and finally this Mobile Suit received its Master Grade treatment. I was thrilled when I first saw it unveiled in a Hobby Show during my Otaku trip.
This is quite the gem and I had someone to custom paint it. This cannon fodder first made its appearance in U.C 0080 'Gundam Mobile Suit War in a Pocket'. Mobilized during the sneak attack of Kämpfer inside the colony, Scarlet Team's elite mobile launched in ill fate.
Improved Gunpla articulations incorporating a new waist-mobility gimmick that enables it to smoothly recreate a sniping pose. In addition to this, the range of movement in the shoulder has been increased, allowing the model kit ease of movement. The sensor part has been recreated using clear parts and the visor can also be opened or closed.
New designs have been used to create the Mobile Suit's weapons and accessories. A right hand part with a cocked finger is included to add realism to the sniper rifle pose. The 75mm sniper rifle has an attachable bipod that's able to fold and slide back & forth. Other accessories include Bullpup machine gun, the GM Command tyre shield and beam sabers. IMHO, GM hasn't seems popular in local contexts but its pretty big in the country of its origin.
