RX-78-2 Gundam head.

This is one of those toys you can get from Japan for a few Yen out of the Gashapon vending machine. This one was tricky to get apart before painting and adding some LED's. It works out to be approx 1/35 scale I think. 

 

Cheers Brian.

Very nicely weathered. It looks like something that was expensive.

So that's about 3.85 GBP (No pound sign on my laptop) A bargain at that price then.

I've not seen these on the bay.

If we could get them at that price I would have a box full but at around £15 on ebay its a bit pricey for what it is.

Very nice work! I managed to get the Zaku one of these, hadn't considered doing something like this with it!

My brother went to Japan a few weeks back so that's where I got mine, but before he went I had a look at Rakuten to see what sort of thing was available in the Gacha section, there were some there for reasonable prices although I have no idea about shipping.
