I had read in one of the Hobby Magazines that there was a Gold injection version of the High Grade RX-78-2 coming exclusively to 7-11. In recent experience that usually means having to go to Gundam Front Tokyo in Odaiba and check the 7-11 in the giant mall there or try your luck at the one 7-11 in Akihabara that may have it. Well, imagine my surprise when I walked into the 7-11 near my home in Saitama and saw one sitting on the shelf. I was shocked to find it and because it was the only one I bought it.
Here is what you can expect to find inside the box if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on the kit.
Gold on gold.
The only colour other than gold (and armour grey) is found on the sticker sheet.
And what’s this?
I have an extra runner here.
This runner has parts that you use if you’re building the GFT version of the RX-78-2.
If you can’t tell from the poor lighting in my pictures there are two different gold colours.
So let’s start building.
An hour later…
While I find the colours less eye-pleasing than previous 7-11 RX-78-2 kits the gold definitely catches the eye. Allow me to give you a tour of the stickers.
You do get the 7-11 sign with this kit just like the previous konbini versions.
I’m gonna call you Oscar.
