My first Gundam Had no trouble building this as my first Gundam, looks great when completed!
Another Good RG Worth owning if you like Gundam 00
Spring for the waterslides! I just finished this kit today. After 9 HGs, 2 Haro, and being the third RG, I finally lost a part. It's a large part of the GN Sword and I have no idea how I lost it. So I can't comment on the main weapon. I'll add that I bought the sparkle green action base 2 and the waterslide set. Get those waterslides for this kit, it'll look amazing! The inner frame gets built first. There's an iffy gimmick with the GN drive that I don't care for. Be sure to cover the clear green parts with painter's tape before topcoating! The color separation is amazing and pops with matte topcoat. As another reviewer said there's some balance issues with the shield, however I display mine with the action base so it's not a big deal to me.
Fun kit, wonky balance I want to start by saying I absolutely loved this kit both visually and from a practical putting it together side. This kit took full advantage of the concept of an inner frame by having you construct the full frame before adding the armor and parts, which made for a fun build. I love clear affects parts and this uses plenty of those without going too far and feeling ostentatious (I'm looking at you Unicorn Gundam). The pose-ability and flexibility of the kit are superb and I truly loved putting this together and having it in my collection. Highly recommend this to everyone.
That said, I have a few minor design complaints. First, this kit does suffer from a combo of small feet and large weapons (or shield, in this case). This does make it unstable in many poses without a stand. Second, the main sword is near impossible to actually connect with the forearm without popping the hand out of place. I'm not particularly attached to that look so it's not a problem, but from a design stance it just doesn't line up well. The third issue is that, while I absolutely love the way the head looks, the v-fin is a bit unstable and pops off too-easily when posing the head. to make this more frustrating, when the fin pops off so does the tiny (and I mean TINY) clear green piece pops out too, and may be hard to find again on your floor.
These issues come no-where close to ruining the kit for me. I do absolutely love it and highly recommend it, but these are things to be aware of as you decide to purchase this kit.
Buy all the Celestial being kits... This is an awesome build. Tons of detail, panelling, decals, clear parts, and some fun gimmicks. As with all the Celestial Being kits, an action stand is a must as the kit is a little top heavy and unstable(I recommend pairing the with the crystal green stands for the fun of it).
In Short, GET IT! I was one of those absolute madmen who shelled out big bucks for the RG Full Saber version which literally only includes the extra big sword.
Take that away though, and you're still left with a kit of incredible quality, detail, poseability, accessories, and aesthetic to rival those of the God-teir RG 00 Raiser. This thing is truly phenomenal, and if you put in the extra work to cut out extra white striping decals from the included sheet this thing only gets better.
This one's a must-have for any gunpla collection. You will not be disappointed. (Unless you REALLY REALLY REALLY had your heart set on the Full Saber)
Finishing: Top Coat/Super Clear (Not for use on effect parts)
You don’t need cement.
