-Hands are a pain to pose because they keep "breaking apart". However, I do think glue can fix the problem
-Very small pieces that if fall on the floor will be lost forever.
-Small, but keep in mind is a 1/144 model, if you want a bigger gundam you can find it ;)
-Doesn't come with stand.
-No backup pieces.
-Easy to build
-Requires VERY LITTLE painting, but it will still look awesome.
-Can transform into bird mode ! :D
-The shield DOES open like in the anime.
-IT'S THE MOTHERF*CKING WING GUNDAM
Despite the hands can fall apart easy, it is a great model. BE CAREFUL when you build it, because the parts from the head are very tiny and if you loose then you will have a gundam without the characteristic yellow-thing. It was my first gunpla and I love it, if you watched the anime when it aired on Tv like I did then this will bring memories.
Also, keep in mind this is a model NOT A TOY, which means you have to be VERY CAREFUL when you pose him, otherwise it might break. I would recommend to purchase the stand too in order to be able to pose him in bird mode and flying. The transformation is nothing complicated, once you learn it it will only take a minute or so.
If you can afford this then WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY AND MORE :D
The instructions are easy to follow even if it is in Japanese. I am glad that I listened to him because it is fun and relaxing to build.
I am currently working on the RG RX-78-2 Gundam, I will post a review of that kit when completed.
My only issues were the bird mode feet on the arms, they often get in the way of the arm articulation and I question their durability, so I've removed them and put them in a baggy in the box for storage, it looks just as good without them but that's just me and hate to have them break. one of them is showing the hing parts is tearing off, mind you I done nothing with them but attach them to the parts they should be on. so I question the durability of the yellow parts. some of these said parts however don't make up the whole body luckily. so that much is good. but keep in mind this isn't a toy for rough child hands. this is an late teen to adult display figure and is meant to be displayed and bring character your shelf and room.
the one issues I think new comers to gundam models in general are the V crest on the head. I had a lot of trouble getting that thing on and it instead insisted on falling out a lot. mind you these are small figures. and in the end you WILL need glue to keep the V crest on.
for the more experienced model makers and Customizers out there, the model does have many opportunities for dry brushing and repaints. maybe even a kit-bash or complete rebuild with new parts? but I will say the figure is great on its own.
in the end I do recommend this figure for Those who enjoy Models, Gundam, Giant Robots, or cool things in general. building the model can be tricky but the end result is very rewarding, accomplishing and just cool for display.

A beautifully replicated Wing Gundam model kit. Took my time to hand paint the parts before putting them together- worth every effort for me to do so. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Lotsopop
Model is of great quality. Don't be fooled by the images -- its small. Its a great subject for detail as well as movablity, but it is difficult to assemble. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Joe
Looks great, lots of fun to build. Much better proportions and color separation than the 90's version. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
