With the unveiling of its most recent model, the RE/100 Gundam GP04 Gerbera, Bandai has once again raised the bar in the ever-evolving world of Gundam model kits. This model, a representation of fast-paced battle and sophisticated design, is proof of Bandai's commitment to excellence and creativity in the field of Gundam kit engineering. 

The Gundam GP04 Gerbera is a masterpiece of model engineering. Crafted with outstanding attention to detail, this kit is fully posable after assembly, allowing aficionados to easily recreate exciting fight scenes. Its design captures the essence of the RX-78GP04G Gundam "Gerbera," which is noted for its quick and agile maneuvers during battle.

The "stürm booster," a triple of boosters situated on the Gundam's back, is a standout feature of this variant. This characteristic not only enhances the model's aesthetic appeal, but it also depicts the Gundam's capacity to move quickly, which is vital in battle.

The multi-colored molding on the RE/100 Gundam GP04 Gerbera is one of its most user-friendly features. This clever design choice eliminates the need for painting, making the kit suitable for both new and expert modelers. Furthermore, the availability of foil stickers and dry-transfer decals allows enthusiasts to personalize their model, adding a unique touch and details to an already remarkable item.

The RX-78GP04G Gundam "Gerbera" was initially designed as a high-speed fighting unit. The Federation suspended its development due to functional similarities with the RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes." Despite this, Anaheim Electronics completed the basic frame and interior components. This unfinished model was ultimately transformed into the AGX-04 Gerbera Tetra, demonstrating the inventiveness and adaptability of mobile suit design.

The GP04's design and capabilities were influenced by the techniques used during the One Year War, particularly Zeon's mobile suit squadrons. Their high-speed strikes were a key component of Zeon's success, pushing the Federation to investigate similar technology in mobile suit design. Interestingly, the development of the GP04 coincided with the involvement of Anaheim Electronics, a business with close ties to Zeonic business and, by extension, Zeon supporters.
