Right Stuf describes Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket:
The great war between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon is almost over. At the neutral space colony of Libot, the Federation secretly constructs a powerful new Gundam mobile suit. Untouched by the conflict, a little boy named Al dreams of mobile suits and space battles... until a Zeon Commando Team discovers Libot's secret, and changes Al's life forever.
The OVA debuted in Japan in 1989 to commemorate the franchise's 10th anniversary.
The Mobile Suit Gundam F91 film is slated for release on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc in early 2017 with both English and Japanese audio. Bandai Entertainment previously released the film on DVD.
Right Stuf describes Mobile Suit Gundam F91:
U.C. 0123. After a generation of peace, the Earth Federation has begun to build new space colonies to house humanity's growing population. But a new force, the aristocratic Crossbone Vanguard, plans to seize the colonies of the newly constructed Frontier Side for itself. As their home becomes a battlefield, a handful of young civilians struggle to escape the conflict. To save his friends and family, the reluctant warrior Seabook Arno becomes the pilot of a new Gundam which bears the code name F91.
The film premiered in Japan in 1991.

Right Stuf describes the series:
Universal Century 0083. Having triumphed in the One-Year War, the Earth Federation has grown complacent, while the last remnants of Zeonic forces have been planning one final stand. It all hinges on ace Zeon pilot Anavel Gato stealing one of the new prototype Gundams out from under the Federation's nose. With a nuclear-equipped Gundam missing and their pride wounded, the Federation ship Albion and rookie pilot Kou Uraki set out in pursuit of the Zeonic thieves and the stolen Gundam.
The 1990-1992 OVA series was released on Blu-ray Disc in Japan last year along with the Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory - Sora no Kagerō animation based on one of the series' two drama CDs.
Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Afterglow of Zeon is slated for release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in early 2017 with Japanese audio and English subtitles. The film has not previously been released in North America.
Right Stuf describes the film:
Nina Purpleton is caught up in the maelstrom of the Delaz Conflict, and she sees the story from beginning to end. She remembers how the trouble started when the experimental Gundam GP02A was stolen, and she recalls the sight of men who were willing to die for their cause… The Delaz Conflict begins in the vast land of Australia, and as the violence continues to escalate, the theater of war moves into outer space. And always at the heart of the storm are Kou Uraki and Anavel Gato, two men whose fates are intertwined. Kou, who is forced to endure an increasing number of humiliations at Gato's hands, and who constantly chases his longtime enemy… Gato, who has devoted his life to reviving the Principality of Zeon, and who acts as the core of the Delaz Fleet... The struggle between these two men takes a sudden turn when the GP02A attacks the naval review, and immediately afterwards, a plot to drop a colony is quickly set into motion. In Earth's orbit, amid the chaos as the full scope of the Delaz Fleet's “Operation Stardust” is revealed, Kou's stubbornness and Gato's convictions come crashing against each other. The year is Universal Century 0083, and Nina will see the war with her own eyes, as she becomes a witness to history.
The film debuted in Japan in 1992.
