I’m sure all of you already had a clue that this Master Grade would be next so no surprises here. Originally, I was going to build this immediately after the RX-78-2 2.0 but you know… I was a bit impulsive :). Going from the runners and the manual, this model doesn’t seem to be as much of a breeze as I thought it would be (like how I thought the RX-78-2 2.0 was a breeze… must be a 2.0 thing).
In typical UC fashion, its the return of mesh cables! Oh how I hated those and making sure they don’t slip out after the parts are assembled. Hooray for minimal foil stickers! The biggest one is the yellow bits on the shield…. seriously, Bandai? Of all things, you couldn’t have molded those two yellow bits for the shield?
Be happy with the proportions we get for models today. Fat MK II is fat o_o.
