RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 New Images EDITED - Completion

Updates on Gunpla Secret Factory's progress on the assembly of RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2. After last Wednesday, the last 3 components of the model are done, and the whole model is completed.

The handle and mount rack for the shield are also molded into the Advanced MS Joint of the arm.

The golden part on the elbow joint are from the decal, which is not easy to apply according to the website.

There's a slit on the forearm to mount the shield.

Part separation for the shoulder armor.

The joint portion of the shoulder armors are movable.

Hand unit has multiple joint sections allowing it to be adjusted into the closed fist or spread palm.

Part separation for the head.

The eyes portion of the head part is covered with reflective decal so that light can be reflected through the eyes that are made of clear part.

Gunpla Secret Base decided to apply golden decals directly onto the eyes instead.

Yellow part inside the head allows the Vulcan to be shown in its designated color.

Shoulder articulation

Waist articulation

The head can be bent fairly high to the top, just as the statue in Shizuoka.

The next round of updates from the website will be about the weapons.

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

Images are from Gunpla Secret Factory: Link 1 (arm), Link 2 (hand), Link 3 (head).
