A step-by-step assembly process has been adopted for the PERFECT GRADE UNLEASHED. Each of the assembly phases to create the internal frame, mechanical parts, truss frame, exterior armor, and effects have incorporated a condensed form of the latest GUNPLA technology, offering a design that enables builders to experience the evolution of GUNPLA.
The largest insert-molded frame in GUNPLA history has been adopted for this item. This enables the frame for the entire body to be put together in the earliest stage of the assembly process ever before seen in a PG kit. This results in the item having both a simple assembly and astounding interlocking gimmicks.
The torso adopts a Core Block mechanism and incorporates a new structure created through a combination of multiple articulation points. Sliding mechanisms have been adopted in each of the leg joints to enable natural poses, resulting in a kit with the most articulation axes in GUNPLA history.
The multi-layer structure has been created through a meticulous analysis of the settings to achieve outstanding details. The internal frame has exquisite details and the truss frame consists of 59 parts with solid metallic textures.
Four types of different materials, such as three types of secondary processed parts applied with silver plating, matte gold plating, chrome plating, and metal parts, as well as newly developed etching stickers used for 15 parts throughout the body, have been incorporated. They help to create an awe-inspiring appearance that exceeds the concept of plastic model kits and allows the item to be assembled with a high degree of completion by any person.
A new LED Dual RGB LED Unit has been adopted to recreate activation scenes. The small new Dual RGB LED Light can change colors and an internal design that maximizes light-guiding efficiency enables both articulation and light-up effects. The item also incorporates a total of 53 hatch-opening gimmicks throughout its body to recreate realistic maintenance scenes.
The dual light enables the light-up effects seen in the main camera on the head, the twin eyes, chest, Beam Saber, and the backpack when the Beam Saber is stored.
The largest number of articulation points in GUNPLA history allows for hatch-opening gimmicks throughout the body. Thoroughly developed design technology and precise molding have enabled even the smallest parts to be put together to create an ideal balance between articulation and durability.
The Message Imbued in the PERFECT GRADE UNLEASHED RX-78-2 GUNDAM
The excitement of building is the essence of GUNPLA.
This philosophy can even be seen in the PG [PERFECT GRADE], the ultimate GUNPLA brand.
PG kits incorporate high-end articulation capabilities, gimmicks, and internal structures, and require an assembly process proportional to the number of parts. Their assembly processes are at a higher dimension compared to other grades, but the PERFECT GRADE UNLEASHED has a simplified process enabled by the latest GUNPLA technology and pursues an intuitive assembly.
However, this does not mean that the item has been merely simplified and instead leads to an even more exciting experience for the builder. The joy of building lies in moments where builders lose track of time and are immersed in the process of assembling GUNPLA.
We have aimed to create the most exciting building experience and found a new conclusion through 40 years of GUNPLA development. PERFECT GRADE UNLEASHED is the embodiment of this conclusion.
Our pursuit of the excitement of building will never end.
