This is a list of Gunpla kits of the Mobile Suits from the Universal Century timeline in the Gundam meta series released from 1980 to 1993. Modelers refer to these kits as "Old kits" (旧キット Kyū kitto?) when comparing them to more recent Gunpla releases.

Mobile Suit Gundam

The first line of Gunpla kits were released in 1980 following the end of Mobile Suit Gundam's broadcast run in Japan.[1] Compared to modern Gunpla kits, these require glue and paint to complete, and articulation and detail are very limited. Nearly every mobile suit, vehicle, and ship in the anime series and movie compilations has been produced in model kit form.

In recent years, many of these kits were reissued under the Best Mecha Collection (BMC) (ベストメカコレクション Besuto Meka Korekushon?) banner, which also included kits from Super Robot and tokusatsu series. For safety reasons, all reissues of the RX-78 Gundam have the V-fin antenna redesigned with "flags" on the tips, much like their High Grade counterparts.

The kit numbers listed below are for the Best Mecha Collection line.
