In honor of the 40th anniversary of Gundam, the original PG is getting a do-over! The Gundam that started it all is being updated using all of the most recent plastic model technology, pioneered and perfected by Bandai. This thing is an absolute monster that allows you to build the iconic RX-78-2 Gundam in layers, starting with some pre-assembled inner frame parts (a la the RG line) and working all the way out to the most detailed rendition of the original Gundam to date! The list of accessories is mammoth, so we're just going to rattle them off:
Beam rifle, 2 beam sabers, 1 LED beam saber, shield, core fighter, 2 RGB LED units for the chest vents, 4 interchangeable hand parts for each side, pilot figures of Sayla and Amuro, metal parts for the verniers and vulcans, marking seals, etched parts, and magnets that we don't fully understand the implementation of! WOW!
Alright everyone, we know why you're all here: it's THE SWORD. Reminiscent of a giant Katana, the sword is brought to life in this model with a metallic finish on the blade and tsuba, which gives the ... (learn more)

I love this model!!!
This is my first time building PG model and it is great! It's details are awesome, opening panels are easy, the waist stays intact when you lift the model from waist up and it's articulation is another great point. The only down side is that it's hands does not move and you have to change it when you try to use different weapon.

The ultimate GunPla building experience that encapsulates 40 years of GunPla has arrived! Since the first GunPla released in 1980, new experimental methods of assembly and part molding have been continuously developed leading to this Perfect Grade Unleashed RX-78-2 Gundam, the culmination of the GunPla Evolution Project started in 2015 to set new standards in model kits. The new PG RX-78-2 is designed to replicate the experience of building a real life robot, starting from the internal skeletal frame and moving outward all the way to the external armor. The 6 evolution points include the ease of assembly, articulation, multi-layered structure, different materials for external detail, and new expressive detail via color changing LEDs. The completed model features the largest size insert molded joint structure ever created at over 10 mm (7”) that can articulate immediately after being cut from the runner. Over 90 points of articulation including working pistons, sliding mechanisms are featured, with 40 points being in the chest structure alone to allow for the most posable model kit ever in this size. The internal skeletal frame features layers of mechanical truss detail accentuated via different colors including silver, gray, gold with multiple parts being combined to form unique shapes. The outer armor features not only plastic in different finishes such as silver plating, chrome plating, gold plating but also a different number of materials including Aluminum parts for the head vulcans and backpack verniers, metallic 3D stickers, and sticker photo-etch parts for high levels of detail. Finally an LED beam saber and a color changing LED is present in the head and chest to display the Gundam in various states of combat or maintenance. A magnet system, the first ever in GunPla supports the massive shield on to the arm while numerous maintenance hatches all over the RX-78-2 can be opened to showcase the highly detailed internal mechanisms. Includes Beam Rifle, 2 beam sabers, shield, transforming core fighter, Sayla (standing), Amuro (1 standing, 2 sitting) figures, multiple fixed pose hand sets, BR435 Lithium Battery (for testing) for beam saber, LED unit (Lr41 batteries sold separately), magnet set, aluminum parts, phoo-etch stickers, metallic 3D stickers, other sticker, instruction manual.
