Gunpla TV – Gundam G40 Industrial Design

Grab a drink and get comfortable, because our review of the new G40 Industrial Design Gundam is going to be a long one.

Designed by the Ken Okuyama Design Studio, famous for designing the Ferrari Enzo as well as a number of other cars, this sleek kit has a unique look that definitely sets it apart from other RX-78s. And that’s not all – Bandai took its time with this kit, blessing it with unprecedented articulation for an HG. While this initial boxing is sold out, if the G30th Gundam is any indication, we’ll likely see this plastic in a number of other boxings in the future!

And don’t forget to vote for the Best Gunpla of 2019!

In this episode:
1/144 HG Gundam G40 (Industrial Design Ver.)
1/144 HGUC Gunpla Starter Set 2: Gundam Version G30th & Gundam Marker
1/144 HGUC Revive RX-78-2 Gundam
1/144 RG RX-78-2 Gundam

Her favorite lines are Hasegawa's Mechatro WeGo line, Meng's World War Toons Pinky line, and weird miscellany like Platz's bonsai tree kits. In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.

  3. It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I hope people at least appreciate the polycap free engineering of the kit.

    But where’s the industrial design Beargguy or Pucchiguy? Or even Haro? Missed opportunity.

  4. Wow, that poseability… great review of an amazing HG kit, such great quality and realism! Really hope this gets reissued, would be a shame if they don’t do the 40th anniversary box again, but hey, it’s the contents that matter most!! XD

  5. Hope they would release it as a regular HG, probably it has a corresponding Anime on the works, well probably

  6. Looks like the designer of the G-Self laid his hands on this Gunpla Kit. Very round edges, very candy looking. Clearly, not my favorite when compared to the other RX-78-2 kits. There are just to many details missing (for such a special edition) and things like the shoulder armor are disproportionate (not bulky enough) looking. The legs are to bulky for the rest of the parts. His feet look like he wears sporty sneakers and the color scheme is awful and missing a lot of contrast. Definitely not a Gundam that has to be on my shelf. Thanks for this review and for saving money for my final decision for not buying this kit.

  7. Among the best HGs ever made. Its that good that I dont even consider it a HG, its on its own level. Although that free moving waist armor is concerning.

  8. 40 minutes for a 40th Anniversary kit, I find that very appropriate.

  9. RX-78-2 is always my favorite, This design is very different than the other HG RX-78-2. I am hoping to get at least one if they ever available again.

  10. My favourite variant on the RX-78-02 design is the 0 Gundam from ‘Mobile Suit Gundam 00.’
    My favourite non-standard HG build remains the HGUC Sinanju, however I have not yet gotten my hands on the HGUC Moon Gundam.

  11. Seeing how poseable this kits is gives me hope of all new and different kits for the future.

  12. This thing has a lot of weird, yet useful, articulation points.

  13. The articulation are insane for a HG.
