What we have here is Bandai's 1/48 scale Mega Size Model Gundam RX-78-2. As far as I know it's Bandai's largest general release kit. At 15" tall it dwarfs even Perfect Grade kits.

In general the kit is very simple. No internal frame, no special gadgets or gizmos. All the joints are done with poly caps which feature a unique toothed design. With these little notches the kit does a fantastic job at staying in place. Even the arm has no difficulty holding the large shield in place.

For whatever reason the paint I applied clips realllly easily. Had to do a lot of touch ups prior to my final top coat. The poses are sort of lack luster because I didn't want to risk causing more damage than there already is. Unfortunately the arm isn't strong enough to hold the huge gun on it's own.

MG GN-X Review

It was a surprise to all when Bandai announced that the second kit to get Master Grade treatment from Gundam 00 would be the GN-X. It's not exactly one of the fan favorites, I really hated it since day one. However I decided to order one of these new kits and hope for the best. When the order shipped I was indifferent. When I started construction I was filled with annoyance. Now that she's finished, I'm filled with a sort of odd, warm, fuzzy feeling.
