RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 New Images - Waist

Part 4 of Gunpla Secret Factory's progress report on assembling RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2. This time it's on the waist component.

Never will you find another Gunpla in 1/144 scale with such sophisticated waist design. ^^

The whole skeleton is a single part on the "Advanced MS Joint" runner, but can be separated.

The bottom part of the skeleton, to be used for the waist can move to the front and to the back.

Parts for just the front and rear skirt armors

More-than-accurate color separation for the parts. ^^

Moving the waist to the front and to the back with the waist joint.

The "bridge"-type joint connecting the side skirt armors is from the "Advanced MS Joint" runner as well.

Armors can move sideways too.

No part-swapping for the Hyper Bazooka's mount rack behind the waist. An adapter part is included with the kit to connect the model to Action Display Base 2.

Very natural kneeling pose.

July 22nd release, 2,625 Yen (inclusive of tax).
