Will I need to buy any tools or what tools do I need?
You need nippers as a minimum, a sanding material would help but isn't required.

Good kit to have

It's a good kit but backpack loosely hold the beam sabers or shoulder cannon. It comes with a lot of accessories. You can build either the chests for the Gundam to suit your choice in ascetic. You can pose it any way that you like.

Spiritual RG

From what I heard the RG version of the RX-78-2 was a bad build, and this one is a solid substitute. That being said it isn't the same level of intricacy as a RG kit, but is indeed a great deal better than a standard HG. Build quality is fantastic, and has a ton of surface detail like an RG kit. The option to choose between two "builds" for a different look is cool too. If you can get one it's definitely worth it, and looks great once complete.
