    ↑←↑ The anti-Real Grade For the question of "Why aren't HGs color accurate" and "why do so some HGs have so many color correcting decals", it's probably because they'd be closer to this price range if they were all as part-color-accurate like this.

    HG Dragonar-1 is OOB plastic perfection, or as close to it as we're ever going to get. It has the color accuracy and inner frame of a RG, but without the tendencies of the Real Grade line for skinny proportions, overblown chiseled detail and an overabundance of decals. It's Okawara-reverent anime accuracy proportions, and not a single fugly seam line in sight. It's the anti-RG.

    The only caveat is the price. You're getting a fully featured kit with a ton of weapons, but frankly the HG Moon Gundam comes at ~$5 less and trades a bit of color accuracy for an Action Base 5 to actually pose it on. And the RG RX-78-2 is (reportedly) one flimsy thing but it more or less does that AND gives you a detachable core fighter. The MG Crossbone Fullcloth for just $7 more on GP gives you a larger kit, actual clear head parts for LEDheads, detachable core fighter, and its own arsenal of 1/100 scale effects parts and accessories.

    Now there are more or less 2 camps, here, one that was going to get hyped to see Dragonar-1 in plamo format, and those that aren't. The former half doesn't need my recommendation because they were gonna get it anyway, and they'll be pleased to know that the leg and shoulder armor colors weren't stickers after all.

    But the latter camp's probably gonna be turned off by the price. If you like HGs but hate color correcting stickers and like color accuracy, then absolutely you should get it, it's freaking great, but if you were never going to get excited for a design from a relatively obscure series that the vast majority of the Gundam fandom never watched past the opening, then this kit preaches to the converted.

    This MF is an entire arsenal. I haven't seen this many weapons in a 1/144 scale kit since RG Crossbone. Yeah, saber/rifle (75 mm hand railgun)/shield, but go beyond that you also have its 105mm double barrel railgun, a dual-saber gimmick that the Freedom Gundam would totally not rip off some 15 years later, 2 arm-mounted throwing bombs, shoulder-stored anti-MA bombs, 2 Close-Combat Assault Knives, a 5-tube missile pod attached to the Lifter-1 Ailerons, and even the 75mm railgun has reusable ammunition with additional ammunition storage tucked in its forearm armor.

    Bandai didn't want to make just a Dragonar-1 kit, they wanted to make THE Dragonar-1 kit, one that isn't bound by RG style panel line/decal overload or slim proportions like its more modern redesigns. They made this thing to look exactly how it looked on 80's television screens, no need for color-correcting stickers WHATSOEVER [if you don't count the shield/eyes, anyway]. It's the anti-RG, one that delivers MG 2.0 anime-accurate aesthetics, MG color accuracy, and simplistic inner frame goodness.
