I just realized that the pics in this page were taken from d*l*ng.net. Are you sure that the owner of that Korean gunpla review site didn't mind if we put her/his pics here? As far as I know, most people are too stingy to share their work on the internet even though it was just in the shape of a picture/photo or a game guide. Those guys in g*m*f*qs.com & d*v*ant*rt.com are the obvious examples of this... Pronunciation (talk) 11:50, March 16, 2013 (UTC)

Real Grade

Shouldn't this page include info about the RG line of model kits. Honored Shinobi (talk) 03:58, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Notes terminology

This is a guide to the terminology used on the notes portion of each Gunpla article:

Parts Variant

Many MS units have various upgrades such as additional armor and weapons or different backpack or armor configurations; as such, the Gunpla of the upgraded unit will feature recycled parts of the original unit. For example, the RGM-89S Stark Jegan (HGUC-104) uses the base parts of the RGM-89 Jegan (HGUC-097). In nearly all cases, the parts variant kit will have leftover parts from the original kit such as an incomplete head and unusable joint parts.

Color Variant

Most MS units, especially the mass production types, have different color schemes based either by rank or squadron, or by prototype stage. A good example is the MS-06F2 Zaku II F2 Type, which is available in Zeon (HGUC-105) and EFSF (HGUC-107) colors. Some color variants may have different parts, but do not qualify as a parts variant. For example, the Quess Paraya version of the MSN-03 Jagd Doga (HGUC-084) differs from the Gyunei Guss version (HGUC-083) with a different head piece and weapon; aside from a different color scheme and the said parts, both kits are completely identical.
