1/60 Gundam RX-78-2 with Light-up Gimmick from Gundam Super Expo 2010

This is one Gunpla I know I definitely missed at Gundam Super Expo 2010 in previous posting. ^^;

GToys Blog reported on the display of a Gundam RX-78-2 kit of about 1/60 scale at Gundam Super Expo 2010, built with design and details according to the 1/1 scale Gundam statue in Shizuoka.

Apart from the looks, the model also features mechanical movement gimmick for the head, light-up for the main camera, eyes, and shoulder lights. The movement design for the head follows that on the 1/1 scale Gundam statue in Shizuoka as well. There are lights on the four corners of the display base as well it seem.

Whether or not this model kit is going to be released and in what format is unknown.

Also, Mega Size Model 1/48 Gundam RX-78-2 RG 1/1 Gundam Project Ver., which was reported to be a Bandai Hobby Online Shop limited release.

To be announced in early September on Gunpla 30th Anniversary's official site and Bandai Hobby Online Shop. Late September release, price TBA.
