Out of the Box Review from the awesome ZakuAurelius!

He also gave it a custom paint job!

The classic RX-78-02 enters the HG line anew with a version of the kit based off its appearance in "Gundam The Origin!" A perfect way to kick off the new year celebrating Gundam's 40th anniversary.

Thanks to the provided option parts, you can build either the early or mid version of the RX-78-02.

The early version features asymmetrical left and right sides and includes a gatling gun equipped on the forearm. The left and right shoulders feature a Shoulder Magnum and Vulcan canon respectively, contributing to the asymmetrical look.

For the mid version, both sides are symmetrical, including the shoulders which are built with flat panels instead of weaponry.

Adjustable vernier are also included on the backs of the calves, with a cover that lets you display or hide the features. The toe tips are articulated, too.


  • Beam rifle (early / mid type) x1 each
  • Beam saber x2
  • Shield x1
  • Hyper bazooka x1
  • Shoulder canon x1
  • Foil sticker sheet x1
  • Marking sticker sheet x1

Note: This kit does not include an Action Base.

My son loved his first Gundam

Great kit, my son who is 8 really enjoyed it and got stuck it, didn't need much help from dad, so sadly I couldn't play much.

Highly detailed and satisfying build.

This was my second HG Bandai kit and the difference between this kit and the previous is worlds apart.
The kit is highly articulated and detailed (definitely get a panel marker or something if you pick up this kit). Colour seperation is on point with minimal correcting stickers required.
All in all it was a very fun and relaxing build.

Highly recommend this HG GUNPLA kit!

I'm quite amazed with the amount of detail and optional parts that this kit comes with. Lots of weapons to play around with. The amount of sticker decals it comes with makes this kit look amazing even for a snap builder. The amount of surface detail on this kit is begging to be enhanced with panel lining, which for beginners or casual builders, can be easily achieved with Gundam panel line markers!
