Bandai 1/100 MG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver 1.5

Back in 1995, Bandai's plastic model division came up with their best idea in years: Start a line of ultra-detailed Gundam kits for adults. The Master Grade series that was born from that idea has, without exaggeration, literally fueled much of the growth of HobbyLink Japan itself!

And now, stolen right from the world of computer software, comes another idea that may also prove to be a very good one: Upgrades! "Version 1.5" of the RX-78-2 Gundam kit is, with the exception of the arms, an entirely new kit. The proportions of the item have changed to bring it more in line with the Perfect Grade kit of the same mecha. But perhaps most importantly, Bandai has attempted to address one of the biggest troubles that plague posable robot kits -- joints that are too soft -- by creating a one-piece, almost pre-assembled inner leg mechanism that is very firm -- ready to stay put in whatever pose you want it to. Not only that, it doubles as a very cool-looking inner mechanism for when you want to display your kit with the panels open or removed. As usual, you also get a bunch of fun weapons, including the beam rifle, bazooka, a Gundam Hammer with a plastic chain, a new beam javelin, and of course, beam sabres. And like the first release, the Core Fighter is removable.

Assembly Guide

Skill Level.2 Basic modeling skills are required. Parental supervision may be required for younger children. These kits are generally suitable for beginner builders. A basic set of modeling tools are required including nippers, hobby knife, sanding sticks/paper, file, and tweezers. No glue is needed for the general assembly. Parts will need to be removed by using a pair of nippers and cutting the part away from the runner. Parts may require clean-up where they were removed from the runner.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are a snap together assembly and do not need plastic cement to complete. We always recommend having some plastic cement handy as a part of your modeler's tool kit. If you prefer to fix your model in a particular pose then plastic cement will work. Plastic cement is also perfect to use if a joint is loose. Apply plastic cement in a single thin layer and allow it to dry completely before test fitting. Re-apply more cement if necessary.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are designed to be built and displayed without the need for painting. Kits are molded in different colours replicating the colours of the actual mecha from the Gundam series. A technique called colour separation, where multiple parts of the model are molded in different colours on the same sprue is also used. Gundam kits often include stickers or water-slide decals that can be applied to the model to enhance its appearance. Some Gunpla kits come with pre-painted parts or parts with pre-applied details, such as metallic or translucent finishes.

Many modelers still choose to paint their kits to customize and add further detail. Painting allows for more creativity and personalization, enabling modelers to achieve unique effects, weathering, and colour schemes that may not be available out of the box. However, the kits are designed to be enjoyable and visually appealing even without painting, making them accessible to a wide range of hobbyists.
