Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G (模型戦士 ガンプラ ビルダーズ ビギニングG Mokei Senshi Ganpura Birudāzu Biginingu Jī?) is an anime Original Video Animation (OVA) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Gunpla since the first RX-78-2 Gundam released in 1980.

Plot

Haru Irei, who witnessed the 1/1 scale RX-78-2 Gundam in Odaiba, becomes inspired to build Gunpla, which is a portamanteau of Gundam Plastic model kit. Haru purchases a one of a kind gunpla, the GPB-X80 Beginning Gundam. After building the kit, Haru, now a Gunpla Builder, and the Beginning Gundam enter the virtual world of GunPla Battle, where players can pilot their customized Gunpla in team matches or one-on-one fights. Haru must rely on the support of his friends if he is to become a Gunpla Battle Champion and attain the rank of Gunpla Meister.
