Since 1979 RX-78-2 Gundam is a Heroic Mobile Suit.

I love Grampa This was my first forray into painting! Learned a lot!

A new brand of models is being rolled out for the 30th anniversary of Gundam! Real Grades feature a stunning amount of detail comparable to the "real" thing, crammed down into 1/144 scale!

The first RG kit is the iconic RX-78-2, featuring the amazing poseability and detail that core kit builders demand along with a stress-free building style perfect for beginners as well! Beam Rifle, Beam Saber, Bazooka, Shield, and Core Fighter are all included for the complete Gundam experience!

    Really cool kit, but not an easy build The quality and look of this kit is awesome, but due to the small size, that leads to a ton of small pieces and decals which might not be the best for newer builders.

    Grampa's Got Some Weak Joints This thing was the first RG and unfortunately it shows. From weird foot construction, skirts and thruster bells that love to pop off, and only the RG style poseable hands included. (Which have a hard time firmly holding things and the fingers pop off a lot)

    I will give credit where credit is due and say it has a fair amount of accessories, and can be constructed with the core fighter on display. (*cough cough* LOOKIN AT YOU RG GP01)

    All in all if you put int he work with the decals this thing is one of the most beautiful Grampa Gundam models ever made, and I do absolutely love mine. If you're like me and you prefer 1/144 scale stuff to 1/100 scale stuff then I'd totally recommend this as the Grampa Gundam to have in your collection.

    Fun build but imperfect model This classic is a fun build and easier than other RGs I've done while still being noticeably different from HG kits; I wish I'd done this RG first rather than messing with some of the fiddliness of RG Zakus. The RX-78-2 looks really good once you're done, but some of the joints (particularly in the arms and waist) are much looser than I'd like, which makes it a little finicky to pose.

    I don't know why.. So I bought this to pair with the RG LAST SHOOTING Zeong I recently acquired(granted this was bought long before the zeong showed up) and...well I ignored the advice of alot of my more competent GunPla friends.
    This thing is like a hand-grenade. While overall just standing there it is a lovely kit, the moment you try to pose it, something falls off. It's unfortunate that some of the components with the Zeong are meant to pair with this, because I..after spending a night popping bits back on, and even trying small amount of Tamiya EXTRA-THIN on some joints to keep them in place..it just refused to hold together.
    If you REALLLY like the RX-78-2, go for it. If not? Some of the newer HG 78-2's pair well enough from what I'm seeing

    My guilty pleasure. This kit is a mess, no two ways about it. But like a problem child, I still love it to bits. The aesthetics of it are unmatched and it's the first of its kind.

    Great for posing Tends to fall apart if you move it a lot, and the tiny pieces make it a pain to get back together. If you put all the decals on, it looks great without painting or panel lining

    Great to look at but things to have a tendancy to pop off. over all i think it was a great attempt.
    Was fun to build and had nice gimmicks in the knees and etc.
    but overall like the RG Sinanju kit... I had a hard time keeping things in place. all of these issues can be fixed with either coating the joints to give it a much tighter grip but just be warned.

    Very detailed kit I really liked this kit even though I’m not a big fan of real grades, there just to little for my hands. The detail is really nice and the articulation is great. It comes with the little core fighter to and a ton of decals and the 30’th anniversary ones to. I would recommend this to anyone who likes real grades and the grand daddy of gundams.
