Gundam RX-78-2 Mech

28 comments
Defend the White Base federation spaceship from Zeon attack! The Gundam RX-78-2 Mech is a posable model of the RX-78-2 Gundam from the acclaimed Mobile Suit: Gundam anime from 1979. I have been a lifelong fan of mech designs, in particular those made by the LEGO team for properties such as Ninjago and Monkie Kid. My design is a tribute to one of the most enduring influences on modern mech design, and fits in well amongst other LEGO models such as Voltron, Optimus Prime, and the many wonderful mechs that LEGO has released over the years.

Features:
-Posable ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, and head
-Iconic shield which may be equipped on either arm, or clipped to the back
-Two beam saber handles which attach in a posable fashion to the "backpack", and a translucent blade to mimic the saber's beam (reuse from the Star Wars constraction figure models)
-A chest which opens to include a minifigure of pilot Amuro Ray
-Rubber stopper pieces in the soles of the feet to ensure stability, reminiscent of similar LEGO mech designs in recent years

Details:
-930 pieces including Amuro Ray minifigure (estimated MSRP of $100-110)
-Height/Width/Depth: 32cm x 16cm x 9cm

Note: I have designed this model both physically and digitally to ensure stability and durability, and both are represented in the model photos.
