The GPB-X78-30 Forever Gundam is the variation of the RX-78-2 Gundam.The unit is featured in Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G original video animation. It is piloted by Gunpla Meister Boris Schauer.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Based upon the HG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver.G 30th model kit, the Forever Gundam is closely focused on long ranged combat alone because of its interesting outward appearance and weaponry. Nearly the entire body of the Gundam is equipped with a special armor to increase its defensive capabilities, although this makes the Core Block System totally useless. Same as the Gundam, the Forever Gundam is equipped with few special weaponry like the Beam Rifle and beam saber, but also adds a new weaponry, called Funnel, which both serves as both long ranged and remote weaponry the Forever Gundam. The 1/144 HG Manual states that the Forever Gundam was in fact a RX-78 that was heavily customized by Boris Schauer himself. Combined with Boris' skill as a Gunpla Meister, it is a formidable unit.
