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 upcoming anime original video animation (OVA) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Gundam plastic model kits (Gunpla). It will be directed by Kou Matsuo and written by Yousuke Kuroda, and features character designs by Kaichiro Terada.
While attending the 1/1 RX-78-2 Gundam display event in Shizuoka Park, Haru Irei goes to the merchandise section to choose a Gunpla kit. When he fails to pick up the last available High Grade (HG) 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam kit, he discovers the HG 1/144 GPB-X80 Beginning Gundam and makes it his own. With his newly-assembled kit, Haru participates in Gunpla Battle, a virtual simulation game where players battle each other with their Gunpla models.

List of Gunplas in Anime
- GPB-X80 Beginning Gundam
- Haru's first Gunpla bought in the Shizuoka Park.
- RX-93-ν2 Hi-ν Gundam GPB Color
- Koji's gunpla that he uses to challenge Haru. Apparently a customized version of the HGUC RX-93-ν2 Hi-Nu Gundam with an original color scheme. In animation production, three kits of Hi-ν Gundam were used in order to obtain three pairs of movable fin funnels (in actual HGUC Gunpla, only one pair is movable).
- It also marks Hi-ν Gundam's animation debut.
- GPB-06F Super Custom Zaku F2000
- Tatsu's customized, heavily armed gunpla, based on the HGUC MS-06F2 Zaku F2.
- GPB-04B Beargguy
- Rina's customized gunpla, a HGUC MSM-04 Acguy made to look like a teddy bear. In episode 2, it is seen wearing a bear-hat, holding a fish. The actual HG kit comes with a recorder and a backpack designed to resemble a school satchel bag.
- MSN-00100 Byaku Shiki
- Kenta's customized build of the Hyaku Shiki (based on the HGUC Hyaku Shiki with Mega Beam Launcher). Kenta painted it white and changed the original kit's "Hyaku" mark (百) to the kanji for white (白) and calls it "Byaku Shiki" (白式).
- GPB-X38-30 Forever Gundam
- Boris Schauer's customized Gunpla.
