I picked up some Gundam from the HCMpro (High Complete Model Professional) line off eBay a while ago. I did get a Zaku box set from Gundam Seed and may have that reviewed a little later down the road. I apologize for taking so damn long to get this review up. This kit was already pretty much assembled, so I could play with it right away.
I have to admit this is an awesome kit to own due to everything you get. You have the A.E.U.G. Mobile Suit RX-178 Gundam Mk-11, the G-Defenser and Flying Armor with a display base. What more could you want with all the additional accessories to boot (hands and weapons)?
This is similar, but smaller version of the Gundam Fix Figuration (GFF) lineup since they are 1/200th scale. The details however were just as specatular as it bigger versions. I was impressed with how much color was used in these to really showcase the figures and accessories. I didn't see much over spray on this, but there was some. For being a fraction of the price of a GFF figure, it is well worth it to own.
Box Photos and Interior Packaging
Like the GFF line, you can pose this in a multitude of ways. The included display stand is extremely helpful in setting this up. It was fairly easy for me to duplicate the setups from the box into reality. This was fun and enjoyable to play with (if you want to call it that) getting it into the different variations. It is highly poseable as you will see see below. Nothing broke when I was doing this, but sometimes it was a pain to get them to 'sit' properly.

What was really made me happy was the way I could combine this into Super Gundam! It was seriously cool how this all went together and was a bit easier that I thought. The G-Defensor looks like a couple of blue sharks on his back with the missile bays opened up. I mixed it up with the beam rifle and the sabres for these shots. Though I may have been a bit theatrical with how I have the sabre beams crossed \(o~O)/
Oh well, that's about it for this review. Let me know your thoughts and if you have anything from this series.
Until next time!
