    An excellent kit for beginners and experienced modelers alike Sharp, detailed, stable, and posable. This is a great all-around kit that might not innovate but gets all the important things right.

    It's definitely one of the best looking kits in the HG line, borrowing all of the detail and styling of it's MG counterpart, brought down to 1/144 scale. The color and parts separation obviously won't hold up to the MG but there are lots of panel lines and small details, and with a little work it can look almost as good. There's a sheet of sticker decals included, just like with the MG. I choose to use third party waterslide decals but the inclusion of RG-style stickers will surely be a nice bonus for beginners.

    The construction is nothing unusual, about what you would expect from the line, with polycaps and ball joints galore, but it does an excellent job of hiding it's seam lines (some remain on the weapons but aren't too bad) and the articulation is quite good, and the separated knee bend is an especially nice touch. While the G40 and Beyond Global versions innovate with new construction and advanced articulation, the Origins version feels more like what you would expect from an HG, but it's solid, stable and easy to pose.

    There are some optional/alternate parts included. The manual offers directions for two different types, but you can obviously mix and match as you see fit. These include alternate chest parts, shoulder weapons, a back-mounted cannon, and shoulder handles. These variants are a nice bonus not even included in the MG.

    With paint, panel lining, and decals applied, this kit barely looks like a HG at all, and can easily sit next to my RGs and not look out of place thanks to the crisp details and realistic styling. The only other kit I can say that for is Moon Gundam.

    Details, details One of the better renditions of this suit. This version has the distinction of being the most detailed: knee vents, calf boosters, wrist guns, shoulder Gatling, etc.

    Best HG of 2020? This is a very good kit. It's very poseable, great color separation and comes with quite a lot of equipment. This kit's also incredibly clean, with very few egregious seamlines. Even the stickers aren't a major pain and pretty easy to put on.

    All in all, a very strong contender for the best High Grade of the year.

    Fantastic version of the Rx-78 gundam This is my first rx-78 Gundam and I am so happy that it was the Origin version. Great articulation, lots of details in terms of panel lines, weapons, and color separation. The only negative would be that the price is a little high for a high grade, but if you can afford it, it would be more than worth it.

    This is the best HG gundam model kit ever I just got my shipment last Friday. When I finish building this model, I was surprised. This model is even better that RG Gundam kit. It is more stable and it articulates like RG and I love it.
