The RX-178 Gundam MK-II is the second Mobile Suit in the lineage that started with the creation of the RX-78-2 Gundam during the One Year War and continued until UC 0088 with the introduction of the ORX-013 Gundam Mk-V. The RX-178 Gundam MK-II featured significant improvements to the previous design, streamlining the Mobile Suit for use within the Colonies. These improvements included a new “Movable Frame” concept, which increased maneuverability and power consumption. The MK-II also features less durable titanium alloy ceramic composite armor, further reducing the weight of the Mobile Suit. The Titans simplified the Gundam MK-II’s design in preparation for mass production, such as removing the onboard Vulcan Cannons. The Gundam MK-II proved valuable during its early deployment but quickly became outmatched by the advanced transformable Mobile Suits that characterized the Grypps War.
Included alongside the MG Gundam MK-II Titans for accessories:
- Beam Rifle
- Hyper Bazooka
- Hyper Bazooka Ammo
- Vulcan Pod
- Spare E-Pack x2
- Beam Saber x2
- 1/100 Titan’s Pilot Figure
The MG Gundam MK-II Titans is a vast improvement of the original Master Grade version released in 1998, featuring a complete inner frame loaded with surface detail! The MG Gundam MK-II Titans features double-jointed limbs and swiveling thighs, providing a wide range of motion to create dynamic poses! The MG Gundam MK-II includes multiple moving pistons and other mechanical details that deliver an excellent sense of scale.
Weapons and Other Notable Attributes –
The Gundam MK-II includes a new variation of the traditional Gundam loadout of Beam Rifle, Hyper Bazooka, Shield, and Beam Sabers. The Beam Rifle and Hyper Bazooka feature removable cartridges for some awesome reloading action! The MG Gundam MK-II includes two E-packs inside the Shield and a spare bazooka cartridge that slots into the side skirt armor. You can attach all of the Gundam MK-II’s weapons to the Mobile Suit when not in use, including the Beam Rifle! The included Vulcan Pods slot right onto the head for some added firepower but may reduce the head’s range of motion.
