Welcome to my review of Bandai's latest Master Grade Gundam model, the RX-78-2 Gundam Version 3.0. The redesigned kit takes after Bandai's new and improved vision of the original Gundam, matching the giant statue in Tokyo and the previous Real Grade release. While it features a more traditional frame than the RG, the MG is, for better or worse, simply a scaled up version of its little brother.

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.
