The RGM-89 Jegan follows the long lineage of Mass Produced Federation Mobile Suits started by the RGM-79 GM during the One Year War. Unlike previous Federation Mass Production units, Anaheim Electronics was responsible for the RGM-89 Jegan’s construction and development. The RGM-89 Jegan combines everything the Federation and Anaheim Electronics had learned in 20 years of Mobile Suit production to create a new standard for mass-produced MS. The Jegan surpassed the GM III in maneuverability and handling, thanks to its updated Titanium Alloy Ceramic Composite armor. The Jegans would see their first major conflict with the start of the Second Neo-Zeon War in UC0093 and quickly became the Earth Federation’s go-to Mobile Suits, receiving many variants during its production run. It wasn’t until UC0110 that the Federation replaced the RGM-89 Jegan with the RGM-89J Jegan Normal Type, which featured notable performance upgrades but maintained the original control scheme.

Included alongside the RGM-79 Jegan for accessories:

  • Beam Rifle
  • Shield
  • Beam Saber
  • Action Base Adapter


Articulation
 –

The MG RGM-89 Jegan is a full-featured modern Master Grade release with a complete inner frame and a functioning cockpit. The MG Jegan is one of only a handful of Master Grades using <250 pieces, making it an excellent choice for beginners looking to build their first Master Grade. The RGM-89 Jegan’s simplistic, polycap-free inner frame provides the model with an exceptional range of motion and the strength to hold a pose for years on end!

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The RGM-89 Jegan uses a Beam Rifle as its primary weapon. This weapon features a shortened barrel for increased handling. Reducing the output of this weapon allowed the RGM-89 Jegan to increase its fire rate significantly. The RGM-89 Jegan’s shield contains four missiles molded in color for an extra level of detail. The Jegan’s Shield attaches to the forearm with two distinct points of articulation, allowing builders to create dynamic action poses effortlessly!

Description

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the RGM-89 Jegan with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.

    This is a fantastic Master Grade, but don’t go into it expecting something on the level of the Sazabi Ver.Ka. Perfect color separation, perfect minty fresh color, great accessories, this kit has it all.

  2. Zaku_Buster (verified owner)

    The MG Jegan is a fantastic kit. The design and build are very simple and easy to complete. If you’re looking to dip your toe in the MG pool, or just want a good grunt suit, this kit is for you! The color might just be my favorite part!

  3. jmc (verified owner)

    The MG Jegan should be marketed for its simplicity, because that down-to-the-basics build approach created one of the best snap-fit Master Grades out there. It’s got a high level of color accuracy, a breezy but satisfying build experience, and just solid proportions. Perhaps the manufacturer’s recommended starting price is a bit high all things considered, and it would have made more shockwaves on the community at a lower “gotta have it” price point, but at no time did I ever feel like this was a kit not worth the purchase.

    It’s just all around borderline perfect, primarily because it doesn’t throw in the razzledazzle and instead highlights the fundamentals of what makes Master Grades so enjoyable. In many ways, the Jegan is the type of MG that I end up wishing some kits were, insofar as it doesn’t trip all over itself to put modernization and silly panel lines everywhere. In my mind, the job of a model kit is to represent the “master” design faithfully, and it’s up to the modeler to make their own unique splash if they want to deviate from it. The Jegan is entirely in that spirit, a full-on Yutaka Izubuchi experience. It’s a great afternoon build kit, and a wonderful unmarred base of how a Jegan *should* look that you can choose to launch your own custom off of.

    Perfect kit, the inherent design of the Jegan means this kit is rather simple and sometimes feels more like a RE/100 or Full Mechanics kit, but that’s not a bad thing! Would make for a great first MG kit. Snaps together quickly and painlessly.
