After pretty much impressed with the High Grade Zaku I from Gundam Thunderbolt, I went ahead and bought the FA-78 Full Armor Gundam, and this thing is pretty impressive.

At first I wasn’t really a fan of the design, but it really grew on me the more I saw it. Some quick thoughts: Great and different design for the traditional Gundam with some heavy duty weaponry and lots and lots of stickers.

Full review and pictures are coming soon!

PREVIEW OOB REVIEW: MS-05 ZAKU I [GUNDAM THUNDERBOLT VER.]

As I’m waiting for the my camera lens to come in to do a proper review of the PROTOTYPE GOUF [MOBILITY DEMONSTRATOR BLUE COLOR Ver.] I got around to putting together the High Grade MS-05 Zaku I from Gundam Thunderbolt after seeing some reviews on the kit which came out in 2014.

I didn’t plan to do a full review of this kit and was just going to throw up some pics, but this kit really rocks. As with the Gouf, the Zeon mobile suits are slowly growing on me since I got Char’s HG Custom Zaku from Gundam: The Origin. And this version of the Zaku I is just incredible, it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s pretty close.

I plan to do a full on review on the kit after the HG Prototype Gouf, but some quick impressions include: fantastic design and color choice, stickers (with application guides on the kit itself!), accessories galore, some limitations in movement due to the design of the armor, unusual backpack,  and fun to put together.

Full review coming soon.
