HG 1/144 | 7-Eleven | Gundam RX-78-2 Ver G30th | OOTB Review | 2011

We have here an out of the box build review of HG 1/144 RX-78-2 Gundam 7-Eleven Version. This is one out of three 7-Eleven Gundam kit versions for this year 2011. The other two are the Zaku and Bearguy kits. Some people laugh when I tell them there is a 7-Eleven Limited Edition kit like this. I do not blame them, I too was surprised the first time I heard it on year 2010, because here in the Philippines we take the 7-Eleven brand for granted but in Japan, the brand name is popular and respected. Anyway, We had fun building this kit. Only the decals, colors and some extra accessories vary from the regular kit. Let us move on with the review. ^_^
