MG Gundam RX-78-3 [G-3] (Ver. 2.0)

Model Kit
In stock

The third version of the "RX-78 Gundam" that appeared in "Mobile Suit Gundam" joins the 1/100 scale Master Grade model kit series from Bandai!

It uses the same parts as the MG Gundam RX-78-2 (Ver. 2.0), with the exception of its armor parts molded in the G-3 Gundam color scheme. It was a significant upgrade over its initial 1996 release. "Version 2.0" significantly improves posability and detail. The snap-fit plastic parts come molded in color, so no painting is necessary. A new inner frame was developed during this release, capable of striking more dynamic and realistic poses than an MG release ever could!

The transformable "Core Fighter" can be docked inside Gundam to become its cockpit. Gundam's movements are not restricted even when the Core Fighter is docked inside its torso, thanks to its ingeniously designed and intricately detailed inner frame!

The Mobile Suit's armaments include a beam rifle with removable super napalm attachment, two beam sabers, a shield, a hyper bazooka, a Gundam Hammer, and a beam javelin. Marking stickers, foil stickers, and dry transfer stickers are included, along with two unpainted (molded in white) 1/100 figures of a pilot, one standing and one sitting.

Are there any significant differences from this Gundam compared to the MG RX-78-02 (Ver. 2.0)?
No. Same exact kit in G3 colors. But also the only retail G3 available. All other G3 kits are PBandai right now (besides the jank 1.0 if you are able to find it).

Aside from the color, no. You could theoretically paint the 78-2 2.0 using the color guide from this model and get the same result.
March 7, 2024
Does this version of the Gundam have extra weapons compared to its original release or do you get the hammer and hyper beam javelin with the original 2.0?
Exact same kit as the regular 2.0 in different colors. Nothing extra, nothing less.
