HG RX-78-2 Gundam (Revive) English Manual & Color Guide

HG RX-78-2 Gundam (Revive) Construction Manual & Color Guide

From the Revive series comes the RX-78-2 Gundam of Amuro Ray as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. Such an iconic mecha. I love how Bandai honors it by always making it the flagship model kit release of any new model kit line. But in the case of the Reborns 1/100 line it wasn't so, that honor went to the Nightingale.
