RX 78-2 3.0 Custom Set unboxing



This is the unboxing post for the Custom Set to the RX 78-2 3.0 Gundam. This was a limited run set of components for the kit that was released along side the RX 78-2 3.0 Gundam. If you built the 2.0 version of this kit you will likely be familiar with what you're getting in this box; because the weapons included in this kit identical(okay, the handles on the bazooka are a tiny bit different) to those included with the 2.0!

Here's what you're going to be able to build with this kit:

1x hyper bazooka
1x hyper hammer
1x beam rifle
1x beam javelin 
1x shield
1x yellow led for the eyes
1x set of water slide makings 
2x beam saber handles

This kit comes packed in a box about the same size as a very small HG kit.

Here are the contents 

Plates:




This plate must have been completely clear for the original kit, because the cockpit canopy for the core fighter is also pink.



There are two additional chain 'links' in the little bag to hook the handle and ball to the chain.



The J1 plate is the new handle needed for the 3.0 to hold the it securely. 

Decals



The waterslide decals included in this kit are the reason I originally purchased this kit, however Bandai has now released the official set (which I have included a photo of below). Bandai provides enough decals to make at least three complete decal sets. This set includes decals to make the Gundam Front Tokyo ver, RG 1/1 Gundam Project ver and Green Tokyo Project ver. These decal sets have all been featured on the 1/1 Gundam at one point or another. This is pretty cool as you could build 3 this kit 3 times to represent the different versions of the 1/1 Gundam. 



Note that this decal set is NOT included!
