First Grade: UC (1999-2000)

The original First Grade line was part of the Gundam 20th Anniversary Big Bang Project in 1999 as a modern remake of the original 1980 1/144 kits. As such, the kits are molded in one color and contain no polycaps, but feature the snap-fit assembly of current kits. The three Gunpla in this line use designs based on their Perfect Grade counterparts.

First Grade: Anno Domini (2007)

The second incarnation of First Grade was released in 2007 for the first season of the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 series. Unlike the original line, this line has the kits molded in multiple colors. The four box covers can combine into a mural forming the Ptolemaios in the background.

Reissues of these kits can be distinguished from their original releases by their glossy box print (as opposed to the original’s matte finish) and inclusion of plastic content information on the box’s side flap. The reissues also omit the “ST” mark, as model kits are generally exempted from the requirements of the Japan Toy Association’s Safety Toy (ST) Standard. In addition, reissues from 2019 onwards will bear the blue Bandai Spirits logo.
