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.

One of the best HG kits I've built.

This is one of the first kits that I've built and I really haven't seen its match in the HG line since. The level of detail and articulation in this kit is great. The whole origin aesthetic nails it as well.

RX-78-02 is great.

Great detail, articulation, accessories, and even gimmicks. Great for beginners that want what the best of Gunpla can offer.

Loved every second of building this!

Great kit for beginners (like me). The articulation and details are excellent. The only tricky part of the build was the head.

Perfect High Grade RX-78

I enjoyed this kit a lot, this was the first kit I panel lined with 0.3 mm mechanical pencil. This kit is very sturdy and the only parts during my build that was loose was the front waist panels because the connecting piece snapped and I used modeling cement and put it back together anyways, and the head piece with the red jewel. It would not hold when I was paneling lining so I glued those 2 parts together. Other wise the kit is a perfect High Grade with lots of possibility with being able to build 2 versions of the kit or combine the 2. This kit is genuinely worth the money
