RX-77-2 Guncannon

Considering Gundam kits are

Considering Gundam kits are the kind that almost never go out of production, I would imagine a newer batch wouldn't have quite so many durability issues.

One can hope anyway. At least until they finally choose to make a 2.0 Guncannon...which I'm sure they will as soon as I give in and buy this one.

I built my MG Guncannon last

I built my MG Guncannon last year and cannot believe that you had all those issues. My model is perfectly fine, till now it all one piece, never had any issues with it. However I also purchased my model last year as well. Not sure if Bandai actually do change the quality of the actual materials over time in case of any complaints.

However, still, very good review, looking forward to your next one! :-)

____ happens

Thanks. It's just the luck of the draw. Usually, for most collectors I hope, this doesn't normally happen. I remember buying the classic Voltron reissue, back when Third Dimension was still on TV, and one of the Yellow Lion's forelegs was on backwards. Didn't seem like there was a way to fix it without breaking the whole leg, so I let it be and eventually sold the whole thing years later as part of a "junk" lot.

My one other incident was with a 1st-gen 1:60 VF-1A Hikaru type from Yamato. It was stored MIB in my storage place, which is climate controlled. I decided to pull it out and deposit it at my local comic shop, and lo and behold, one of the wings went from white to yellow. Now I know that can happen if a batch of white paint is bad.
