HG 1/144 RX-78-02 GUNDAM [GUNDAM THE ORIGIN VER.]
Color and part separation for this kit is also planned to be better than the rest of its HG counterparts in the same GTO GunPla line. A special decal sticker seal will also be packed in the kit as always for this kit series.

I built this kit the same night as my Entry Grade RX-78-2 on stream, and I have to say, I actually like the Entry Grade better as a kit. The color separation is not the best. The V design between the legs is done with a sticker and of course I had to apply an eye sticker. What was the most disappointing to me was the Hyper Bazooka's optic's color isn't a yellow part, but rather a sticker, which doesn't look very good. The build also uses polycaps, which I always dislike, but it's a high grade, so that's a given. That all said, after customizations to this kit, the details really started to shine through. I really like the small details to this kit and I really appreciate how many good panel lining and weathering opportunities this kit offered me. Let's just let the pics speak for themselves.
Probably my favorite version of the grandaddy that I've build in this scale, and one of my favorite gunpla in general. There is beautiful simplicity to the build but the model is brimming with detail waiting to be drawn out by expert painter if you have the time. Has tons of accessories and even two trigger finger and free hands! Amazing for an HG. Honestly I actually prefer HGs to the other grades as I enjoy their builds the most and this guy is among the best on the market! Highly Recommended
I was debating on what RX-78-2 should be my first HG version, I watched plenty of reviews and came to this conclusion. Compared to all other HG RX-78-2, this gives you the best overall package, it is essentially 3 different models in 1, early type, middle type and your own personal custom type. Articulation, accessories, color separation is all top notch, the only way it could be better is the omission of polycaps. Its a 9.8/10 must have.
