My room was a mess; decals, decal paper, parts, plastic, and a ton of q-tips were lying around. That got me pumped up into finishing the kit. Without further adieu, I present - CHAR!~
Starting off, the complete perks of the kit

I just noticed that the insignia on his back pack flew off T_T
Damn I suck at applying decals. Never! EVER! Apply decals on a surface with a flat coat. Always apply it on a smooth / gloss surface. Notice in a few photos that some decals tore off too during photo shoot. LESSON LEARNED.
To show off the RG's articulation
Kneeling poses are flawless (almost, more on that later)
Amuro tasted a few of this
Heat Hawk GET!
Onto my favorite weapon - CHAR BAZOOKA! (?)
Char: Who's your daddy now huh AMURO!?!
Don't ever touch my sister with your filthy newtype hands! >B(
Amuro: But I already "touched" her CHAR!
Char: ........... AMURO!!!
...And so the eternal rivalry continues
Oh boy where to start? Details are amazing
Sophisticated color separation are top notch!
Never thought that the panel lines were excessive. It has a ton but felt just about right.
The spring gimmick on his legs
Mono eye moves independently
*Careful when doing kneeling poses. Side skirts tend to fall off
Fingers pop off fairly easily
I've read a lot of reviews and rants about the flaws of the RG kits. From skirts to fingers, for me they are a bit exaggerated. Sure, falling parts are annoying but it WAS NEVER (at least for me) an issue when playing around with it while taking photos. It pops off from time to time but it was manageable. The pros outweigh the cons by a wide margin. The RG's offer something new while staying true from its roots. For fans of the UC timeline, I suggest get the two main suits. I already started the RX-78-2 and crap, I can't wait to finish it soon! Verdict? A must-have!
