Whoo boy...those new hands

Whoo boy...those new hands make a BIG difference to me. I hope one of the repaints use these new hands. I don't know if it's enough to make me buy a whole other one, but I certainly wouldn't mind a new one in different colors make use of those awesome new hands. The hands on the first version are just...pathetic.

I'm with this guy. The hands

I'm with this guy. The hands make a big difference in this release. How well do they hold the weapons compared to the first RX-78-2 RS release? The first one holds it well enough if one does not play with it. But if one does not play with his toys, then one might as well just buy the damn Real Grade/HG 1/144/Master Grade/Jumbo Grade/ EVERY SINGLE RX-78-2 KIT OUT THERE INSTEAD OF A TOY I CAN WOOSH AROUND THE ROOM WITH.

So, good sir, does this toy hold his weapons well with his hands? Beam saber? Rifle? Bazooka? Or must I skip on this purchase? Thank you very much.

Ya know, strangely enough,

Ya know, strangely enough, you CAN woosh around the room with most of the RX-78 models that I have! Especially the HGUC one. Very sturdy, and since you have to take apart the hands to put stuff in them, it means he literally can not drop anything! It's funny when a model that could break if you drop it does better than one of these suckers. The first version RD's hands are just inexcusable for a toy. The sculptor musta got smacked by something heavy while in the middle of designing those stupid hands. ESPECIALLY since this figure has so many heavy accessories that just fall out of his hands while he's just standing there...
