Bandai Hobby Mobile Suit Gundam Model Kit
The ultimate GunPla building experience that encapsulates 40 years of GunPla has arrived! Since the first GunPla released in 1980, new experimental methods of assembly and part molding have been continuously developed leading to this Gundam PG Unleashed 1/60 RX-78-2 Gundam model kit, the culmination of the GunPla Evolution Project started in 2015 to set new standards in model kits.
The new Gundam PG Unleashed RX-78-2 Gundam model kit is designed to replicate the experience of building a real life robot, starting from the internal skeletal frame and moving outward all the way to the external armor. The 6 evolution points include the ease of assembly, articulation, multi-layered structure, different materials for external detail, and new expressive detail via color changing LEDs. The completed model features the largest size insert molded joint structure ever created at over 10 mm (7”) that can articulate immediately after being cut from the runner. Over 90 points of articulation including working pistons, sliding mechanisms are featured, with 40 points being in the chest structure alone to allow for the most poseable model kit ever in this size.
The internal skeletal frame features layers of mechanical truss detail accentuated via different colors including silver, gray, gold with multiple parts being combined to form unique shapes. The outer armor features not only plastic in different finishes such as silver plating, chrome plating, gold plating but also a different number of materials including Aluminum parts for the head vulcans and backpack verniers, metallic 3D stickers, and sticker photo-etch parts for high levels of detail.
Finally an LED beam saber and a color changing LED is present in the head and chest to display the Gundam in various states of combat or maintenance. A magnet system, the first ever in GunPla supports the massive shield on to the arm while numerous maintenance hatches all over the RX-78-2 can be opened to showcase the highly detailed internal mechanisms. LED lights require Lr41 batteries (sold separately).

If you’ve been doing gunpla for decades, you’ve seen the improvements over time, seen the enormous and mysterious Perfect Grade boxes behind counters that beckon you with “one day, when I have the money and skill.” And when you finally got one, you gave it your all and it was glorious.
This kit let me re-live the awe of the first perfect grades all over again. There is nothing like it. There are no weird screws, no harrowing weak points you have to engineer fixes to yourself. Everything about it feels “perfect.” If you’ve done loads of gunpla, you won’t need any special tools or skills. Unlike every PG I’ve done before this doesn’t feel like a hybrid of a standard model, it feels like like the ultimate gunpla experience.
The only thing I will say is going with water decals and a light semi-gloss finishing coat to the blue to even out the reflectivity will be rewarded. The stickers are fine but this kit screamed for better.
Absolutely the kit to centerpiece in your collection.
