Great A great model, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys gundam and the box art is fantastic

It's been a little while since we got a non-transformable Ver.Ka kit, but here we are! The Full Armor Gundam as it appears in the Gundam Thunderbolt OVA is here in MG Ver.Ka glory! You can display the kit with or without the full array of full armor parts upon completion, and all the joints are covered in realistic vinyl material! All missile hatches and the cockpit feature opening gimmicks as well. The backpack arms have full range of motion, and a full array of accessories are included: dual beam rifle, rocket launcher, 3 beam sabers, 4 shields, and a stand are all here for the ultimate Thunderbolt piece!

    Jaarik Abels-Smit has this! -3y

    Know what you're getting into For the record this review is based on the Gundam Base Clear/special coating version; it has all the same parts, its just an even bigger pain thanks to stress marks on the brittle clear plastic. The most infuriating thing about this kit is that once it's finished and I saw it standing there I had to agree the journey was worth it, but there were times on that journey that I was not sure about it. The fabric gimmick for the joints looks great, and is something I never again want to do again. The dozen verniers throughout the body are excellent at flinging themselves off of the model and under furniture. And its a good thing that this kit looks good standing stoically like on the cover, because the absolute lack of midsection articulation due to the fully detailed and incorporated escape pod (why? just... why? All that articulation lost of a feature invisible while the model is being displayed) will prevent it from doing just about anything else. Predictably the massive hunk of plastic that is the shield cannon is too heavy to hold up without bracing or glue.

    The one feature I can endorse without reservation are the shield arms, which offer a huge range of articulation as well as fitting cleanly into the backpack with no part swapping needed. The kit looks incredible, but know what you are getting yourself into.

    WOW!!! From the time I saw the Thunderbolts series I've wanted this kit! Once I got it it was insanely fun to build! The only drawback is the plastic sleeves on the joints. I personally could've done without that .

    A center piece for your collection This was the first Master Grade I built. Before, I had only built one high grade and one real grade. I was told for my first MG I was crazy. I’ll agree now.

    The build is straight forward but the vinyl sleeves that go on the arms and legs, are tough to work with. You’ll probably have parts that fall off. You’ll have no idea where they came from.

    The included stand is serviceable for standing, non dynamic poses. Get yourself an action base.

    Daniel Wymbs reviewed this! -2y

    Wow, just... WOW Okay, I want to start off by saying this is an AMAZING looking kit with or without the armor and is an INTENSE build I haven't had since the likes of the MG Sentinel and Ex-S Gundams.

    Okay, that said? This thing is an absolute beast and a nightmare at times. The shoulders... my GOD the shoulders... so, the arms and legs have this really cool vinyl sleeve they slide into which LOOK great, but this same stuff is also covering the shoulders. The shoulder assembly connects into the main body with a key and lock style connection. Why is this a problem? If you don't cut the vinyl just right or only THINK you have the shoulder peg pushed in far enough and turn the arm to lock into place, congrats! You just snapped the peg clean off! This is probably the worst issue I had with the kit (of which I had to buy a second one to replace a few parts I screwed up during the build). There are also a few bits on the black armor that LOOK like tree flash, but aren't, so careful what you cut.

    Okay, I know that sounds like a LOT of negatives, but this kit is otherwise SOLID. joints are some of the tightest I've assembled on an MG, as I said earlier, the vinyl coating is a cool and unique feature (well, it's on the NT-1 2.0 but not in this quantity) and it's probably the most unique RX-78 you'll build.

    I'd only recommend this to experienced gunpla builders so if this is your FIRST kit... tread carefully.

    Too Much to Handle Excessive, overwhelming, simply stunning. This pricy kit comes with a boatload of accessories. Unlike other kits, you can attach nearly everything all at once. Its a tad hard to stand on it's own.

    Not bad I love the design for both this and the Psycho Zaku, mainly because both are very different variations of the classical rivalry between Char and Amuro. The dark blue, the core fighter, the armaments, and the hand details are all very nice, as suspected of a Ver Ka. The only negatives I could see are the joints. The plastic wrap isn't as much of a problem as are the weak connections in the arms. The difficult connection process caused me to break the arm connection. Though it ahs been fixed, that is something I would warn for someone who is planning to buy this kit.

    Fun but has issues I wish that there was a way to build this without the plastic covers on the joints. Those plastic covers are terrible.
