Great 1st Kit! Great build for new gunpla builders, also a great value to buy another to rebuild and try new techni ...

In honor of Gundam's 35th anniversary, Bandai is releasing updated versions of iconic suits from the early days of HGUC, and of course one of the first suits has to be the RX-78-2! Featuring an updated mold that allows for greater poseability and a more detailed build, this kit figures to be at least $20--but it's not! This completely revamped and updated kit will be the same price as the original! That's because new technology allows for more than a 50% increase in points of articulation without a significantly increased parts count.

    OG Grampa Gundam Definitely a great first gunpla kit, not only due to high posability and simple construction but the iconic look is one that will stick around. Very recommended.

    Great for Beginners A simple, affordable remake of a classic. Great for beginners as many of the spots you have to sand down are concealed in the end, giving much more room for mistakes.
    The figure is also very articulate, making the revive a reasonable buy for those who've already got a RX-78.

    Best intro kit to Gunpla You can't go wrong with the OG RX-78 Gundam itself. It's a simple build that provides amazing value right out of the box, including amazing articulation, sturdy construction, and gorgeous detail. Some panel lining is recommended to fully flesh out this kit, but this beats every MSIA iteration and even the Robot Damashii set out there, IMO!

    Good for the price This was my first gunpla kit and it was great to learn but I do not particularly like it. I got two other RX-78-2 kits that I like far more. Also the shield holding is weak and doesnt stay in place very well. However, for the price this is a great HG

    But really, start here When I first got into the hobby, this was recommended as the first kit to try. Because the aesthetic wasn't as cool to me as some of the IBO kits, I actually did one of the worst ones. Doing this kit hooked me into the hobby. Not only is it a very easy build for first-timers, it's still my favorite Gunpla to pose because it's so solid and flexible. It's such a quality product, and it showcases all of the fun aspects that the hobby has to offer while also being a perfect homage to the original mobile suit.

    Awesome Build! Compared to the RG version of this model. I found this one to be on point. It’s more firmer and not flimsy. Definitely a must for you OG fans!!!! 5/5

    My New Favorite I've purchased and built 4 Gunpla, this one being the most recent. It's got everything you could want at a pricepoint so absurdly affordable. The poseability, aesthetic, classic weapon selection, and admirable design are more than adequate. This Gunpla has single-handedly turned my interest to the iconic mobile suits of the earlier shows, where as I started with IBO.
