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

Review of the weapons of RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 from Gunpla Secret Factory:

Parts for the beam rifle

Single-piece parts for the exterior of the rifle.

Not sure why the mecha component of the rifle has to be molded in white. ^^;

Parts for the bazooka

Much like the beam rifle, the rocket part molded in white is rather unusual.

Gunpla Secret Factory mentioned that the correct method to slot the handle onto the body part of the bazooka is as shown through his assembly and not the manual.

Because of the separate part molded for the rocket, each round inside the bazooka can be seen.

Parts for the shield

Different ways to configure the handle of the shield.

Very long beam saber for RX-78-2 in HG format.

Pin to mount the beam saber onto the hand unit.

Bazooka can be mounted onto the rear skirt armor without any part swapping.

Shield can be mounted onto the backpack just as the mecha setting.

Gunpla Secret Factory's recommended method to mount the beam rifle to the hand.

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

Images are from Gunpla Secret Factory.
