MG Gundam GP03S Dendrobium Stamen English Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG RX-78GP03S Gundam Dendrobium Stamen English Color Guide

Gundam GP03S Dendrobium Stamen from Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory. This unit was piloted by Kou Uraki after his RX-78GP01Fb Gundam GP01Fb was destroyed while dueling against the Gundam GP02A Physalis of Anavel Gato.

This mobile suit is unique because it was designed to mate with a weapons platform known as the "Orchis" which together make a formidable cocktail of destruction and mayhem. Am no Gundam expert, but this seems to be the first time that this Gundam + Massive Weapons platform came out in an anime series. This configuration was seen again in other Gundam Anime series. Like in Gundam 00 Season 1 (Exia + GN Arms, Dynames + GN Arms) and Gundam Seed (METEOR units of Freedom and Justice Gundams)

The Master Grade Gundam GP03S is selling for 3500 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2800 yen at Hobby Search

Color Guide for the MG Gundam GP03S Dendrobium Stamen was translated to English from the Japanese Color Guide posted at Hobby Search. Great review of this Kit can be found at Dalong's Gunpla Review Site.
