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!

    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.

    Amazing Build! This model conveys the general blocky yet slim look of the 78-2 faithfully and beautifully which has also afforded it an excellent range of articulation due to not having the bulkier armor of it's successors. The kit is very simple to put together the only trouble spots are the stickers as they are with most kits but if you get some paint or some gundam markers you can easily avoided them, the eye sticker also isn't necessary as the eye piece is clear yellow so all you have to do is paint it paint and either do your best to avoid painting over the eyes or just paint over the whole thing then carefully scrape the eyes clean.

    If I had to think of any negatives for this kit it would be the lack of panel lines sculpting on the fronts of the shoulder armor, this is only a negative because the model has panel lines opportunities everywhere you'd expect including the top of the shoulder armor but the front and back are just flat. The safety nubs on the v-fin are also a a bit big and unsightly but this also won't be a negative if you intend to remove them as the you have plenty of room to get your nippers between the nub and fin to carefully cut it off and then lightly sand what remains of it until your fin looks uniform just be careful not to overdo it. Another tip is that the front skirt armor is designed to be separated, simply use your nippers between the two balls, you can sand down the plastic between the balls afterwards but leaving a bit of will help them not be loose due to friction regardless the results will make the model look more dynamic in kneeling and jumping poses.

    Nostalgia in a box Despite "Gundam Wing" being my first exposure to the Gundam Universe, I soon found myself tracking down the original series to watch. Now I have the RX-78-2 completed on my desk (Having built it over this weekend. It's nostalgia in a box! The appearance has a very anime-like quality to it. This is further aided by the posability of the joints. It was fun to build, though it was somewhat challenging due to my larger sized hands (Especially when putting the decal for the eyes and front/rear cameras.) The only real issue I have with it is that I can't get the back of the left gripping hand to stay on when trying to make it hold the shield; it pops off too easily (For now; until I mod it.) All in all, this set is great and can only get better with detailing. An excellent choice for getting started with not only the Gundam Universe, but HG-scale Gunpla.

    THE Starter Gunpla. When I started out with Gunpla, this kit was heavily recommended to me as the perfect beginner's model. Of course, I couldn't find one until after I had two other kits under my belt, so I guess great minds think alike, hm? But anyway, I'll have to agree, this IS the perfect starter Gunpla. It's a simple, easy build, posable as all-get-out, and its classic design makes it look cooler than cool. If you're just starting out, it's perfect, if you want a cheap Granddaddy in your collection, then look no further.

    The Perfect First Build This was my first build and it's PERFECT.

    Very forgiving aesthetic for mistakes and really teaches you the basics quite well.

    I plan to get a couple more to use as training for modding.

    And how can you beat the value at that price?
