The Delta Plus is the semi-mass produced prototype that was supposed to be the next-gen Zeta mass production suit. But in reality the Delta Plus is almost just a face-lifted Zeta Gundam. It uses technology from 0087 (time of Gryps conflict).
It looks really cool (I still prefer Delta Gundam) when it came out in the OVA. You can really tell that this was what the Hyaku Shiki supposed to be, just not gold.

Partsformer not Transformer/Transformable
Being an HGUC release, the Delta Plus will be short on some details. This release being a transformable mobile suit would have some more articulation taken out of it for the sake of its gimmicks.
The arms still moves 90 degrees sideways and pivots at the upper arms. Though, not shown the arm can twist upwards thanks to the straight peg joint.
The elbow joint is not double jointed, and the picture above would be the maximum movement you can get out of it.
The legs on the other hand somehow redeems the upper body’s lack of articulation.
Feet can be bended as much as seen above. That is almost at 90 degrees.
The whole leg can move forwards fully at 90 degrees without much hindrance due to short front skirt armors.
The knees are somehow double jointed, but can’t do a full bend.
Legs bending sideways, not at much as Delta has some stoppers on its thigh-waist connection. Can be modified though.
On the waverider transformation, do take note that most of the these transformable suits in the Universal Century timeline have these intricate or complicated transformations as compared to other universes. The Dela Plus’ transformation to waverider mode is one of these. First seen used by Zeta Gundam. This is no Wing Gundam that just twists and bends then becomes neo-bird mode.
Looking back, here are some of the effect parts and parts former parts included in Delta Plus
And after all the swap outs, here’s what left of the mobile suit mode
Other than that rather silly/tedious transformation. It looks neat.
- Looks great.
- Parts-form quite nicely.
- PS plastic.
- Transformation can be bothersome at times.
- Limited upper body articulation.
Though quite limited in the articulation, you can still have some great poses with the Delta Plus. Looking through the internet, most hobbyist have custom painted their Delta Plus to various colorways. If had the time, I’d probably paint one in gold regardless of already having a Delta Gundam.
Also, we have made a promo, Delta Bundle to promote the three Delta Mobile Suits.
