Gundam RX 78 - 2
Mobile Suit...
About this creation
I was commissioned for another project and here it is: Mobile Suit Gundam RX 78-2, the Gundam that started it all. The style of this mech suits itself well to my style and you can probably see the influences in my head design and other components as seen in some of my previous legoformers. I had a lot of fun building this and am sure my comissioner will be happy with this for years to come. It has also sparked my attention in this subject matter and I will be building more Gundam Models!

Some noteables on this design: About 12 inches tall, loads of poseability and articulation, transforming core fighter which can be swapped with standard midsection (on technic pin and holes), weapons and accesories can snap on at different points. This project also has an SD Gundam sidekick.

Quoting Milo Angelo Carandang Just a question how much will it cost for Lego Mocs ?

Yeah...the bazooka. At the time I couldn't think of another way to describe it. I suppose it really isn't a shoulder cannon.

I've never watched Gundam so can't comment on the accuracy, but this is an excellent mech by any standard. I'm sure your commissioner will be delighted with it!

The bazooka?
Quoting Raymond Drum That's pretty darn good! When I saw the picture with the shoulder cannon, the AC/DC song Big Gun popped into my head.

I would not call myself a master mecha builder yet maybe a master legoformer builder! I still have a lot to learn about mechs. Thank you for your kind words and support!
Quoting ccy 8086 It is a pleasure to see a master mecha builder start a Gundam theme and it's about the day. Though lots of people build this Gundam and build very well, you still can find a way to build in different method and result great. I love how you build the shield and the head, especially the head Gatling gun. Already waiting to see what you will pose next....

They did not give me too much trouble! LOL! Thanks for the comment, coming from someone who knows a whole lot more about Lego Gundam design than I, that's cool!
Quoting Mithryl Dlarix A great intro to the Gundam universe for you. Skirt plates are tricky little guys aren't they? Good job!

Its already spoken for that's why I built it! I did not build it to sell later - I built it because I was commisioned to!
Quoting Declan Muller There's a 72% chance that someone will commission you to build this for them. Probably by the end of this week, because so many people check out your creations it will have increased to 76%. You know why? It's so cool! And I don't even know what gundam is!

i have to study first , i know more than one man should know about g1 transformers, gundam is a new theme for me and not one i followed as a kid. But looks like similar to transformers there is a lot of subject matter that could be built.
Quoting Thomas Z. A very nice LEGO incarnation of the famous Gundam. Great job! It's good to see that you're building from this theme now. The model is not just accurate but has all the equipment(tough it seems you forgot the "hammer" :P) of the original Gundam. The chibi is also neet along with the core fighter. I hope to see more Mobile Suits from you. Will you build any of the non-gundam mobile suits and perhaps, some of the transforming types in the near future? I think you could build the Gaplant with ease (I tried it myself, but failed to re-create the transforming mechanism).

Actually he is perfectly proportioned - i think you are just seeing my poor photography skills! LOL!
Quoting Rabid Goldfish Nicely made, though you should lengthen the legs a little. I made the same mistake. ^Blub^

The new owner will get a specific video just for them on all the functions, features and transformations!
Quoting Scott Allen Great Gundam! It is very nice of you to build things for others. Im sure the owner of this model will be very happy. You should build a little stand/base for it and sign it. You said the chest area can be swapped with the micro jet, did you not show that switch on purpose? Like a lil surprise for the owner? Fantastic job and congrats on "transforming" lego into money. ~.o Keep up the good work my friend. ~cheers
