Review PB HG Gundam Rollout Color

This is the review for HG RX-78-02 Gundam Rollout Color (GUNDAM THE ORIGIN MSD version)

HG RX-78-02 Gundam Rollout Color (GUNDAM THE ORIGIN version) is a 1/144 scale model kit of MS “RX-78-02 Gundam” from “Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN” MSD. The MS color based on white and light gray is reproduced with molding color. It is a kit that reproduces the characteristic body shape at the time of rollout, such as the head, chest, and waist, with new modeling. Various optional parts such as armament and hand parts are also included. The price is 2,860 yen (tax included). This item is limited to Premium Bandai.

In the 12th episode of Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN, the RX-78-2 Gundam rollout specification “RX-78-02 Gundam Rollout Color” that appeared in the commemorative photo with the last development staff is HG THE ORIGIN MSD. Made into a kit. Based on the HG RX-78-02 Gundam (GUNDAM THE ORIGIN version) (hereinafter referred to as the normal version) released in March 2020, features such as a head with two antennas and a chest with an embedded air intake The shape of the MS is reproduced.
The molding color is based on white and light gray, and each part has a dull red color scheme. The basic rollout color with few color types is reproduced as a whole. The stickers color-code the head and weapon sensors, the molds on the joints, and the V-shaped mark on the waist, but the details are relatively small. Almost no painting is required, and the unassembled finish is sufficient.

The poly cap uses PC-001 for each part. Gray molded KPS is used for the elbows, knee joints, and internal parts, and the joint strength is reasonable. The backpack is small and has no specific weight, and its independence is stable.
Shield, beam rifle (early type, medium type), hyper bazooka, beam saber blade ☓2,

Includes flat hands (left and right), weapon holders (left and right), hyper bazooka suspension parts, shoulder vulcans and armor parts.

Some extra parts are included. Since the normal version parts such as the head, chest parts, shoulders with antenna are included, it is also possible to assemble a white origin version Gundam. (There is no forehead part on the head, but it is included just because I forgot to assemble it.)
Dedicated marking stickers.

The design has a distinctive head, so at first glance it may seem strange and you may have different tastes. The white-collar worker of the whole body is also beautiful and cool with a feeling of cleanliness that is different from the regular version.
The point to be worried about is that the ORIGIN series format makes it relatively easy for the joints to settle. So be careful as it can easily stagger. The back parts also have shallow dowels and are easy to detach, if they may be subject to stress. It is also a good idea to increase the strength in advance.
Based on the origin version of Gundam, there are plenty of weapons and various poses. Since all the surplus parts are included, it is possible to recreate the rollout color version of the regular version by recombining. It seems that you can enjoy various things as a kit with a wide range of play.
