View Full Version : RX-78-2 SoftBank Ver.GP30th Metal in Frame kit

Hi all!

My wife just gave me this kit for Christmas!
I don't know much about it, so I thought I'd come here and see what y'all know. I googled for some info and it looks like maybe it was only given with the purchase of the Gundam-style cell phone from SoftBank...maybe? Mine didn't come with the phone, just the Gunpla Kit. Looks really cool and I've never had one with metal parts!

So anyway, do you know if this is approximately MG level as far as the grade goes? I've done several RG kits...they're generally my favorite. So I'm just trying to figure out how difficult this one might be before I start. Basically, any info you know about it would be great. I had the MG RX-78-2 Ver. 2.0 on my Christmas wishlist and my wife said she saw this at the store and knew it wasn't exactly the same, but thought I'd like it. She was right!

Great looking kit man. I wonder how it stands up to a MG 2.0

Thanks! That's kind of what I'm wondering. Hopefully it's similar, but I thought maybe someone here had built both.

Looks a lot similar to the 2.0 version. But I can see some very distinct differences in the inner frame.
