To celebrate 40 years of Gunpla, Bandai brings us a kit from “Gundam 0079” of a HG RX-78-2 Gundam, Beyond Global!
The articulation in this redesigned First Gundam features the ability to create incredibly natural-looking poses; both the design and the articulation labeling it as the new Beyond Global edition. It boasts movement akin to bending, including independent articulation at the wrist joints for shield posing.
Watch to see it in action and order this incredibly detailed and articulated HG RX-78-2 Gundam kit today!
In this episode:
– 1/144 HG RX-78-2 Gundam (Beyond Global)
Yet another great HG kit, amazing articulation, really shows how far modelling technology has come! The tan kind of colour feels a bit odd, like it’s been in a sandstorm or something, guess it gives a degree of realism with the “wear and tear”, haha!

Yes Bandai, flex your articulation tech. But please put it on some other kits as well…
do one for the zaku ii line
Great! Thank you ^_^
you gonna talk about the robot spirit version?
Thanks for the group photo of the rx-78-2!
It’s pretty cool to see this time line of 1/144 scale RX-78-2.
They don’t include like the G40 and whatnot because I think they’re just trying to show the bare-bones, standard RX-78-2 Gundam kits released through the years.
Seeing the HG RX-78-02 Gundam (Gundam The Origin Ver.) with the HG RX-78-2 Gundam [BEYOND GLOBAL], you can really tell the differences in design.
The Origins version definitely retains a more classic look with very slight modernization details here and there.
The Beyond version definitely took that modernization aspect further with a more sharper and angular design.
I wonder what it took so long for Bandai to make this in separate parts instead of stickers.
Now why couldn’t Bandai do the eyes in parts too? A black piece with a clear yellow piece underneath.
They almost had it.
Also, the side of the head shouldn’t been in black; something they could’ve done in parts.
Gaps on the under side of the feet?
I presume we will be getting Beyond Global version of the RX-78-2 in RG, MG, and PG too?
I look forward to the comparison video.
Yup, more RX 78-2
Does he do yoga? He can really take a lot of uncomfortable poses for a forty year old.
Grandpa Gundam still lookin’ good.
