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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How big is it compared to other Gundam kits?

Get ready for the ultimate centerpiece! This Mega Size Gundam stands a towering 375mm (almost 15 inches) tall when completed. Its impressive size captures the iconic RX-78-2 in stunning detail, dwarfing most other Gundam kits and demanding attention on your display shelf.

Is it easy to build?

While snap-fit and glue-less, this Mega Size kit is rated as "Expert" due to its complexity and numerous parts. It's recommended for experienced modelers or those with patience and prior experience. Beginners might find it challenging, but the size and presence make it a rewarding feat for skilled builders.

Does it come pre-painted, or do I need to paint it myself?

It comes in pre-colored plastic with some parts molded in different colors, providing a good base for most builders. However, for the full anime aesthetics and personalized touches, paintwork is recommended. This lets you add weathering effects and make the iconic white and blue color scheme truly pop, but requires additional materials and some painting skills.

Is it articulated for dynamic poses?

Absolutely! This Mega Size Gundam boasts impressive posability throughout its body, including arms, legs, head, and V-fin. Recreate iconic moments like the beam saber throw or heroic poses, letting this massive mobile suit come alive on your shelf.

What weapons and accessories are included?

Get ready for the full Gundam arsenal! The kit includes: Beam Saber: The classic close-quarters weapon, ready to unleash its blue glow. Beam Rifle: For long-range dominance and tactical posing options. Hyper Bazooka: A devastating heavy weapon for truly impressive displays. Shield: Defend against enemy attacks and add dynamic action to your poses.

Comments: Large size can be a bit difficult to put on a shelf, but used as a capstone standing above the shelf or rack looks incredible impressive

So much fun, and so damn BIG!

The mega size is sadly only of HG quality in terms of complexity, but it's a great build nonetheless. It's large size and sturdy construction allows it to be very easily posed, and the large size of the pieces is great for someone learning to do things like panel lining and sprue sanding. Genuinely a great experience in both building and posing, though I do wish it had a bit more detail and was a bit more complex

Grand, quick and fun for all skill levels

No matter if it's your first kit or 10th, you will find easy enjoyment out of this kit. This is a kit you can finish in a few hours or less than a day depending on skill level. It's also a great project to customize or learn panel scribing on as you're able to work on larger pieces but it comes at a bigger cost compared to say learning to customize on a high grade kit.

If you're just a huge gundam fan and need to fill space on your shelf than the scale will not disappoint you. With a little panel lining to bring out the details Bandai already provides you won't be too fussed either.
