Bandai HGUC 1/144 RX-77-2 Guncannon

HGUC 1/144 RX-77-2 Guncannon 4

Final mobile suit from of the Operation V trio which i completed this weekend. Really like this one, it went together perfectly and has the best hidden seam where the plastic went together because of the black go fast strips over the entire suit. Took quite some time to put together, started it on a evening last week and finished it up a couple days after.

Comes with 2 different kinds of weapons to mount on the shoulder, the cannons and the white missile launcher which i don't remember seeing it the anime, really like the look of them.

Wonder of you could have both on at the same time, missles and a cannon could be deadly or would both fire and a missle hit a cannon shell right in front of the suit.

The lying down pose which did'nt see that much off after Kai started to learn how to fight, thought Kai was a cool character. recently watched the intro for Gundam Zeta which im looking forward to, get to see alot of the White Base crew back again even for a few episodes.

Something about the backpack that i think is cool looking.

Has a sticker for the eyes, which at first i was'nt sure would look any good but looks fantastic.

I used to have this toy in the mid 80s and the cannon attached to some missiles which will launched by a spring mechanism. Those were the days.

I really Guncannon simplistic design (just like GM). The kneeling posture is very classic.

Leon- Use to love the action feature like spring loaded missles, good old school toys.
Dennis- Wanna get a GM too but i think i over spent on gunpla lately, going to wait till i built every kit i got.
