Hi just felt like posting this. Got this from Image Anime. They asked me to snap and flatcoat this quickly to display.
This felt very wrong to do... not painting a kit feels sacrilegious now.

I get it back in a month after it's been displayed. I'll see if i want to strip and paint it then.

Looks cool! I have one of the other RG version (hopefully) arriving tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it!

just out of curiosity, are RGs just MGs scaled down to 1/144?

^ No they're completely different. Often times they actually have better part separation than their MG counterparts. They use a prebuilt innerframe that you simply cut out and reorganize. With the armor, there is also tons of color separation, with multiple shade of similar colors making up what would be one color on a mg. There are also almost triple the amount of decals on a RG.

Still i'm a MG guy simply due to the dislike of the small scale.

do they come with the signature element i like on all MG kits which is the peg in the hands cause if the RGs have it im sold! and if yes does GSAM have em in stock?

The hands have slots in them. The weapons have pegs, both hinged and permanent that clip into them. They hold the weapons very well.

the RGs hold their weapons better than any MG I've ever owned. Only problem I've ever run into my RG RX78 is the fingers' tendency to pop off when trying to arrange them around the rifle's handle.

Just 4 (kind of) so far. RX-78-2, Char's Zaku II, Aile Strike, and Mass Production Type Zaku II. Freedom's in the works, though.

the day i see either the Hi Nu or the Alex get the RG treatment is the day i get serious about RG *crosses fingers and toes*

I would love an Alex RG so much. You just don't even know.

I think if they did do an Alex RG I'd probably gain a greater appreciation for the design.

However, if they make a RG Alex, there needs to be a RG Kampfer.

Rest easy my brothers, let us continue to dream until bandai grants us our undying wish for an alex and kampher.
