HG RX-78GP03 Dendrobium English Color Guide

HG RX-78GP03 Dendrobium Color Guide

One of the most awesome kits to ever be released by Bandai in 2002 was the very massive 1/144 High Grade RX-78GP03 Dendrobium from Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory. The Dendrobium kit consists of the Stamen mobile suit and the Orchis docking behemoth. Prepare to make some space in your room whenever you buy this kit, as to say that this kit is huge is an understatement.

The massive HG RX-78GP03 Dendrobium is selling for $ at Amazon, 20550 yen at Amiami, 23800 yen at Hobby Search
