    orwyvernsable has this! -10m

    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.

    Fantastic beginner kit I picked this up for my partner because they'd expressed an interest in building something with me but had no experience with model kits (not even lego!). The clear instructions and no-tools build meant that they only asked for my help a couple of times during the process, and they came away feeling confident enough to pick up a HG kit!

    For the value, pretty much perfect Even though I have been building 1/144 Gunpla since the early 2000s, this simple $8 kit impresses me more than most kit in this scale have in a while. Since most "Entry Grades" seem to be unarticulated or at least have extremely limited articulation, to have this be about as articulated as a regular HG, and to have the level of color separation without any decals whatsoever is amazing. For the value, no complaints here whatsoever.

    Whether you're totally new to Gunpla or a longtime builder, or even just want a cheap Gundam toy, I highly recommend this. Ideal for practicing/playing around with customization.

    Unbeatable entry to the hobby It's just mind boggling how great this looks, for the low low price. It was my first model and it got me hooked into doing more.

    Revolutionary No lie, I'm of the opinion that this is one of the most revolutionary bits of gunpla in forever. A cheap price, great articulation and a quick build? Get yourself a pair now: one to build and one to make a custom out of.

    Simple but fun! It's a great starter kit, this was the first kit I built going into Gunplas. It's the iconic gundam that most everyone knows so I figured I'd start with it and honestly it's really cool looking for only being $7! Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking about getting into building models. Now to be fair, I'm not huge into the Gundam animes but I'm a big fan of mechs and honestly that's all that matters in the end.

    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.
