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.

Has Grandpa ever looked this good?

Only my third kit so far, and it felt like a much more complex and difficult kit than Aerial and Barbatos (my other two so far). The articulation and posing you get at the other end, however, is astounding. Colour separation is good, with the only sticker being for the eyes. Between this anniversary kit and The Origin kit, the classic RX-78-02 looks as good as it ever has.

Lovely design, but struggles with posing

First gunpla kit I've bought and built, and I'm overall quite happy with it. Your mileagle will vary on the aesthetics, but I personally think its a really nice redesign of the RX-78. The build overall feels good with the exception of the connection between the upper arm and shoulder. Probably shouldnt be too hard to tighten up though.

Main issue is with the articulation on this kit. The articulation on the ankles is extremely limited (can only move forward and back) so it can't hold anything except the most basic standing poses. You're not getting anything dynamic looking out of this with some kind of action base, unfortunately. Otherwise though I would recommend it, it's very pretty and an easy build.

It's great hg and a beautiful redesign of the original gundam which has blown me away with colour separation, how well it holds together and it's posablity but on my copy the joints for the waist have become rather loose despite only striking a few poses. Recommend it to any builder and having something to tighten the joints in case yours loosen
