RG Strike Rouge Gunpla Expo Limited | Real Grade | OOTB Snap Fit Review

We have here an out of the box build aka snap-fit review of a Real Grade (RG) Strike Rouge Gunpla Expo Limited version. This is not included in the regular RG release since it was part of the Gundam Plamodel EXPO held last year (2011). In fact, it does not have a number. This RG Strike Rouge is very similar to the RG Aile Strike all except for the girly-pink color. Being our first RG, I must say that I am amazed at the details this kit has. Indeed, this is a combination of the features of an MG and a PG placed in a 1/144 kit. But just be careful because some parts have a tendency to break because they are too fragile. No, we did not break any ^_^

Included for this kit are plastic stickers.

I do not know if they have the same sticker as the regular version.

The ones that look like foil stickers are actually plastic stickers with foil over them.

An overall great kit.

At first I thought that the pink will be too strong that it might look like it is in trans-am mode, but luckily the pink is enough.

Also I observed that the only thing constantly falling off is the V-fin, other parts are staying still

The joints are really tight and doesn’t seem to get loose easily

highly poseable, very articulated

RGs are the only 1/144 that has an internal frame

though I think it costs too much… just a little more and you can get an MG version… but I guess there is a market out there who collects only 1/144 kits.

I would definitely buy an RG again if the price is right

    1. Thanks! Yuh, just a few more bucks and you get yourself an MG kit… BUT, I think some people still prefer 1/144 kits because of display space issues or simply put that it is the line they are collecting… You know bandai, they want to make EVERYONE happy! hahaha

  1. Does anyone know here how much amazon charges for shipping? I have now in my cart 9 1/144 gunplas. I’m pretty lazy and the shops near me don’t have these gunplas that’s why I’m buying on amazon. Thanks in advance!

    1. are you from the Philippines? As far as I know Amazon does not ship to the PH… though using EMS/FedEx might be possible… Do note though that if you use services such as FedEx/Express Cargo, they will charge you fees if ever your cargo paid customs taxes.

      1. Thank you so much for the reply. Oh. Yup i’m from ph. Antipolo, Rizal. I did the math and I’d be saving if i buy from amazon. The star build strike is like for 750php there and in sm masinag it’s 1200. Though i havent taken into account the shipping cost. Any rough estimate on shipping cost? Thanks!
