The RX-78TB-2[SB] Gundam Stormbringer was a custom Gunpla built by GIMM (aka Tim Barret). It was an upgraded version of GIMM’s RGM-79TB-1[TB] GM Turbulence, which in turn was based on the RGM-79DO GM Dominance from the manga series Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: The Blue Destiny. GIMM swapped out the GM Turbulence’s head for a Gundam-style one and changed the military green and gray color scheme to the traditional Gundam tri-colors. He also strengthened the Gunpla’s armor and output, which resulted in improved performance. Its armaments included a beam saber, a box beam saber, a double beam cannon and a GHL-MAD gun. When out of control raid bosses threatened to destroy GBN, GIMM was one of the many Divers who fought to save the online world.
