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

What makes the "Anime Color" version different?

This BB Gundam features vivid colors and details that match the classic animation style of the original "Mobile Suit Gundam" series. Expect bolder lines, brighter hues, and a less "washed-out" look compared to standard BB Gunpla releases.

Is it pre-built or do I need to assemble it?

Similar to most BB Gunpla, the RX-78-2 Anime Color is a snap-fit kit, requiring no glue and minimal assembly. It's quick and easy for beginners and experienced builders alike.

Does it have any articulation?

Yes! The Anime Color Gundam has movable arms, head, and legs, allowing for simple posing and display options. It might not be as fully articulated as larger Gunpla kits, but it's enough to recreate iconic poses from the anime.

Is it just for fans of the original Gundam series?

While Gundam enthusiasts will certainly appreciate the nostalgic "anime accurate" color scheme, the cute SD style and accessible build can appeal to anyone who enjoys mecha models or collectible figures. It's a fun and vibrant addition to any shelf.

Are there any other versions of the BB RX-78-2 available?

Absolutely! You'll find a vast variety of BB Gundams, ranging from standard color schemes to unique variations, special editions with weapons or effects parts, and even dioramas that recreate famous scenes from the series. Consider exploring for additional options to build your own Gundam universe!
