RX-78-2 Gundam Mega Size Model Kit 1/48 Scale - SOLD OUT
Oh, happy day! The announcement of a 1/48 scale Gundam sent thrills and chills through the spines of many Gundam fans, and the day has come to finally get your hands on one of these Ginormous bad boys! Of course, its size alone is impressive. Once assembled it will stand almost 15 inches tall, but perhaps the most impressive aspect of this monstrous kit is that you don't need any tools! That's right! The pieces attach to the runner by a very thin length of plastic so you can break the pieces off with your hands! If some parts prove difficult for you, Bandai has even included a "Double Separator" tool! To make things even easier, Bandai has made it so that you can snap two runners together and then remove the individual pieces. (This must be the "double" in the "Double Separator.") It is a true time saver! There are even icons on the runners to indicate which part of the kit the pieces are for. Of course, the 1/48 Gundam comes with two 1/48 beam sabers and his huge beam rifle and shield--and it has 34 points on its body that can move. One other interesting tidbit is that this kit doesn't come with any stickers; everything is properly molded in color. There is even a mini-booklet from Dengeki Hobby with detailed modeling tips for this beast, in Japanese of course. Don't be intimidated by its size, this kit is a snap.
