MG Gundam RX 78-2 Ver 2.0 - Part 4

In part 4, I'll be reviewing the waist joint of the RX 78-2 ver 2.0. The waist joint of this kit which holds the two legs of the Gundam is only held by a Polycap part. It is weird that is does not have the joints of other MG kits that I built before such the MG Unicorn. This maybe due the legs joints being really well articulated. The joint for the side skirts and the back skirts move simulaneously which I think is a nice feature.

The two pegs connects to the Core Fighter thrusters

With the waist joint completed, the RX 78-2 is ready to rollout from the Gundam Factory ^^. And, I say, this is one of the best looking MG Gundam out there. The look of the Gundam might not caught on in the beginning but after a while, it make sense why the Gundam series is still appreciated by the Japanese till now, after three decades. This is the icon of Real Robots in general.

Tried the Real G 1/1 look, didn't work I guess

Since the Gundam itself is completed, I will move on to the weapons that I have completed so far. And the first weapon would be the weapon that I eagerly wanted to build since I opened the box : THE GUNDAM HAMMER. The first time I saw RX 78-2 uses this weapon was from the videogame "Gundam Battle Assault 2" (PSX). Oh man, using the special attack and Amuro saying "Gundam Hammah" was so cool. The weapon itself is a reuse runner from the MG Turn A Gundam kit. It consists of a runner with13 parts, a chain and two connectors for the chain.

Me with my hammer ^^

Next weapon that I assembled was the beam rifle and the Super Napalm . I assembled this together because I want to leave the Super Napalm attached to the beam rifle at all times. Nice feature for the beam rifle is that it has an internal build as well.
