Comparison - Left Version 2.0 and right Version 1.0
Good old Gundam that once pioneered the flagship of Master Grade Gunpla. Classic design that took over the torch of the first Gundam. Guess my blog is targeted to the old folks of Gunpla! This painted kit was not made by me but bought at Singapore Gunpla Society Forum. It was bought years back even before the launched of MG Gundam RX-78 Mark II Version 2.0. To me, it's still a real nice piece of display. The previous owner had told me he had purposely added some residues to the white paint to give the Gundam a more raggard and worn-off effect.
This older version had no inner frame and lost out in terms of articulation however the design remain faithful to the look in anime with the bulkiness and muscle. The RX-178 Gundam Mk-II are three prototype mobile suits developed by the Titans, an elite special unit of the Earth Federation forces, in UC 0087. These are the first Gundam units seen in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, based on the original RX-78 Gundam. After been captured, Titans color scheme is replaced by the AEUG in favor of the traditional white and blue, to make it look less sinister.
