The RX-78 Gundam is the iconic Gundam mecha design, introduced in 1979 in Yoshiyuki Tomino's and Sunrise's anime series Mobile Suit Gundam. In Mobile Suit Gundam, it is a testbed weapon for the Earth Federation, when it falls into the hands of Amuro Ray, the son of a weapons designer, who goes on to pilot it in the Earth Federation's war against the Principality of Zeon.

As the success of Mobile Suit Gundam began the Gundam franchise, this design was the first of many variations in subsequent works. The design appearing in Mobile Suit Gundam, called the RX-78-2 Gundam serves as the iconic symbol of the Gundam franchise and sparked the creation of its multiple sequels and spinoffs.

It should be the original version ^^;

Yes, I know that =P
What I want to know what version of RX-78-2 model is it, like is it 1/144 scale or 1/100, is it even a snap-fit model or MSiA. It looks great and I would love to add it to my collection :la:

First I thought that it's this version [link] but after closer looking it's different. This one isin't it either [link] , so If you know or remember anything more about this model please let me know XD

Impressive little fellow...

Aye, I've seen it. I rather liked that one, and, surprisingly a lot of the character aspects of that new show remind me mostly of the original as opposed to any other series...Could be from the way they set the clock back on the timeline maybe?

You are referring to Gundam Unicorn? You are correct. :)
