From the OVA Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team comes the E.F.G.F First Production Mobile Suit Custom Type RX-79 [G] Ez-8 Gundam Ez8.
This 1/144th scale High Grade Universal Century kit-set contains:
- Parts to build Gundam Ez8
- 2x Beam Sabers
- Parachute packs
- Machine Gun
- Ammo packs
- Beam Rifle
As the RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type units were constructed primarily of spare parts left over from the RX-78 development project, replacements parts for them were very limited. When the 08th MS Team’s leader, Ensign Shiro Amada’s, RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type was all but destroyed during an ambush on the Zeon’s prototype Apsalus II mobile armor, it had to be rebuilt using whatever parts the engineers could find.
Shiro Amada’s Gundam Ez8 continued to see service in the Southeast Asian theater during the One Year War, until it was destroyed during the battle to besiege and capture Zeon’s mountain stronghold where the completed Apsalus III was located. The Ez8 suffered heavy damage in its battle against Norris Packard and his MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom before being damaged beyond repair in combat against the Apsalus III, with a RGM-79［G］ GM Sniper obliterating its left side before having most of its lower body blown off when the Apsalus III misfired after the Ez8 smashed its cockpit with its fist and disappeared into the volcano along with the MA, although the Ez8’s pilots survived.
