    Fantastic, as advertised model! The Good: This product arrived fast and early, it was in good condition on arrival. The kit was every bit as easy as claimed for assembly and instructions with the finished Gundam being color accurate. No painting or decal work needed for the finished kit. It is highly poseable from head to toe and although it only comes with 2 hands (1 left, 1 right) in a standard closed around an object pose it can easily hold its accessories. The Gundam even has a surprisingly high level of detail (More than I would expect from something that's $8.00).

    The Bad: One of the knee cap pieces is loose, can be fixed with glue but the kit says there is no need for that. The shield can also be a bit loose when slotted into the backpack and the rifle comes with a articulated scope but not an articulated handle for two handed use. Also the front skirt is one piece, a common problem for Gunpla from what I understand but while there is usually a way to correct that with most kits there doesn't seem to be a way to separate the skirt halves without risking them falling off on this one.

    The Ugly: It comes with two beam sabers but no beam saber effect pieces, probably not a problem for veteran model makers but as this is my first model I don't have a spares lying around to use.

    The Verdict: I paid $8.00 for this... money very well spent, I was really glad to see its ease of construction prevented me from feeling overwhelmed on my first attempt at a model kit. I had Gundam action figures as a kid and this model beat them hands down in articulation and the joints are sturdy enough to let it hold poses and stand up on its own. If you are beginning Gunpla like me or just want a very easy, cheap, and fun RX-78-2 I highly recommend grabbing one.

    Entry Grade Done Right Amazing articulation and color separation at a tiny price. The lack of surface detail and blocky design only add to its simple charm.

    A good starting point! I ran across this and remembered all the fun I had building Gundom Wing models. "It's cheap and will be a fun thing to occupy me for a few hours" I thought... of course it opened the floodgates! It was a great introduction and helped me figure out where my skills are and what levels I'd have the most fun with.

    Great for beginners! This figure is great for those who want to get into gunpla. The build was simple and fun. Great pose ability and tight joints. I do wish it came with blades for the beam sabers.

    Incredible Value I bought this kit to work on together with my son, who is actually under eight years old. I popped out the pieces for him and with very little guidance he finished it in about 45 minutes. I'm so proud of him! The look, articulation, and durability of the piece is fantastic - the best value I have ever received for a model.

    Seems like it would be a great base for an RX-78-1 or RX-78-3 custom.
