Gundam RX-78-2 Ver 3 Limited Edition

Recommended Posts

Ok, so this little gem (in 1/100 scale), is a kit I won as part of the Gundam Grand Prix event that was sponsored by the local anime-japanese-otaku yearly convention "San Japan", here in San Antonio, Texas. 

I won the kit thanks to the famous Odaiba diorama y'all saw on the latest IPMS Journal. 

It is a limited, exclusive and special edition of the originator of all the Gundam things: the RX-78-2. In this case, the plastic sprues are clear and translucent, and some parts are colored (the original plastic is colored, not that Band ai colored them after the "imprint"). It is only sold at "The Gundam Base", the Gundam mega-store in Japan. But you can buy it on-line, or buy the regular version with normal plastic sprues. Just look for "Gundam RX-78-2 Ver. 3". 

Enough. Now photos.

That's neat.  Really like the diorama you did as well.

Nice!  I don’t see the clear kits finished very often.  Nice poses as well.

Most of the times people just stand the kits straight up and down.  So boring.  It drives me crazy when the feet are pidgeon toed or they are not flat on the ground.

I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Thanks for the kind words, Neo. 

Yeah, these kits can be posed dynamically, so... 🙂
