The ecoplo Mk-II is the same kit as the HGUC Gundam Mk-II Titans Version kit from 2002 but molded in recycled plastic making it black. Bandai includes the marking stickers for the eyes and helmet but not much else which isn’t a big deal.
As all the runners are in black, there’s no need to post pictures of them, so I’ll just post my thoughts on the kit.
Overall it looks great. The proportions are excellent and it really looks fierce, like a Mobile Suit to be reckoned with. I can see why the Mk-II is so popular and perhaps the MG version is in my future. If you clean the gate marks carefully seam lines won’t be unsightly.
As its an HGUC kit it is relatively easy to build however the design is excellent and this kit has some great posability. It also has huge potential for modifications, but I shouldn’t start thinking about that otherwise I’ll be taking this baby back apart.
With a bazooka, rifle, beam saber and shield as included accessories you will be able to spend time actually ‘playing’ with this guy.
I can only compare it to the other HG kits I have built, the G Gundam and the Avalanche Exia Dash, and would rate this Mk-II kit lower than the G but higher than the Exia. The fact that the kit is nine years older is a testament to Bandai’s kit engineering. What will an HG kit look like nine years from now?
Fun Factor : 7/10 Just building the Mk-II makes me happy.
Colors : 5/10 Given half points due to it being all one color, but it is 限定！
Weapons : 8/10 As mentioned before Beam Saber, Beam Rifle, Bazooka, and Shield! Plus the extra vulcan pod (?) that can be mounted to the head and the two beam saber handles.
Articulation : 7/10 This guy poses pretty good for an older HG.
Build Design : 6/10 Well designed and fun to put together. ‘nough said.
Extras : 4/10 You get the extra beam saber handles which fit on the backpack, and the vulcan piece that goes behind the helmet.
Overall Look : 9/10 Love the Mk-II!
