HG The Origin #12 MS-04 Bugu Ramba Ral


The MS-04 Bugu is the successor of Torenov Y. Monovsky’s innovative YMS-03 Waff developed by Zeonic Company to improve the Mobile Suit’s viability in actual combat. Many of the improvements made to the MS-04 Bugu sought to improve the Mobile Suit’s maneuverability, increasing the power output to its joints and the number of external pipes for improved mobility. The MS-04 Bugu drastically overshot its budget during development and was deemed unsuitable for mass production. Zeon operated several MS-04 Bugu units before the One Year War, given to trusted ace pilots such as Ramba Ral, who would personalize his MS-04 with a distinctive blue color scheme.

Included alongside the HG Bugu for accessories:

  • Machine Gun
  • Heat Hawk (Deployed)
  • Heat Hawk (Stored)
  • Shield
  • Action Base Adapter


The HG Bugu borrows several internal components from the previously released HG Origin 01 Char’s Zaku II model, the first model released in the HG The Origin line, showcasing the in-universe lineage that connects these two Mobile Suits. This model features double-jointed limbs and swiveling thighs, providing a wide range of motion to create dynamic poses. The piping segment on the Mobile Suit’s torso is self-contained and should not inhibit the model’s movable range. This model includes all the necessary markings to recreate Ramba Ral’s personalized MS-04 Bugu used during the Battle of Mare Smythii right out of the box!

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The HG Bugu includes the same Machine Gun used by the HG The Origin #14 RCX-76-01 Guncannon Mobility / Firepower Test Type, as the Earth Federation and Zeon both held contracts with the weapon’s manufacturer, Yashima Heavy Industrial, preceding the One Year War. The HG Bugu also includes the same Shield used by the HG The Origin #15 MS-05 Zaku I Char Aznable. The Shield attaches to the Mobile Suit’s forearm via a ball joint connection for a more secure hold.

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HG The Origin #12 MS-04 Bugu Ramba Ral with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
