High Grade or HG is a line of Gunpla kits by Bandai. These kits feature better range of motion and greater poseability than most No-Grade kits. It is important to note that the 1/100 scale models for Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS do not have HG listed anywhere on the box or manual, but they are considered comparable to HG in terms of quality.

The HG moniker has also been used in other anime and sci-fi kit lines such as Neon Genesis EvangelionAura Battler Dunbine, and Pacific Rim: Uprising.

1/144 & 1/550 Scale

  • High Grade All Gundam Project
The line was eventually expanded into the After Colony, After War, Future Century, Cosmic Era & Correct Century timelines with the HGAC, HGAW, HGFC, HGCE, and HGCC lines. Unlike the other High Grade kits, they utilize joints and build quality of HGUC produced in the same manufacture period (e.g.: a HGCE Gunpla produced in 2014 will have the same build quality and attention to detail as a HGUC Gunpla produced in 2014).
