MG Hyakushiki Review Part 3

It seems that i'm trying to rush everything here. This review should be done last year on December and that's why i need to complete it as soon as possible but most important thing is i must cover everything that i should for the review even though i try to rush everything.

I always saw lots of great video review of model kit in Youtube and number of viewers were a lot too. I'm not sure why that i have some weird feeling here. I do sell video camcorder and study something about video recording. When i saw their review, the good thing is those video come with lots of information but some basic requirements of video recording was not there such as steadiness, focusing and scenes duration (One scene for the entire video). I do have problems with these basic but i try to minimize it as much as possible. On top of that,  i feel my video is very boring too ( i guess most of you will notice it) because lack of information within the video. Until now, i'm still thinking of improve it and i'm seriously want to know what you want and your comments. Thanks.

MG Hyakushiki Review Part 2

So, here we have the part 2 of the review for MG Hyakushiki. As what you see from, this snap and fit version was almost same as the complete version if you decide not to do anything on the golden plate armor. 

So, first check on the proportion of the kit. I mentioned about the abdomen or lower torso area was a bit too short, then i feel it was quite acceptable after i complete it but again my first feeling came back to haunt me after slot in the palm unit. I think i'm really need to do something on it. Other than the lower torso, the second proportion flaw that i complain was the feet. It can be better if it slimmer a but it will require either cutting or sanding which will damage the gold plate part. Therefore, i'm not planning to do anything on it. These are the only flaws that i complain. 

In terms of articulation, we can't expect much from a old kit. There is one pictures in this post show how much i can bend its knees, feet and arms. If we check from side way, i can say the articulation is good enough for this kit but what make it look bad is the two proportion flaws that i mentioned (in my opinion). Although refining or repairing the proportion flaws can't help on articulation but sharpening the shape of certain part will make the whole kit loo more dynamic even the kit has limitation on the articulations.So, can it pose? yes but... depends.. 

In terms of detail of this kit, not much but sufficient. Although most of the snap and fit procedures were simple since this kit doesn't come with lot of parts but most of the area are cover properly. For example, the back of the skirt armors was cover which not like what we have from MG Strike gundam. Pipes at arms were molded separately and this kit should only require very few masking process for painting. If you think of adding panel line or plate armors, there are still lot of empty space around the torso (don't mess with the gold plate armors!!! i just feel its a waste if someone sand it off for mod. Haha).

MG Hyakushiki Review Part 1

I'm back with MG Hyakushiki review here this time. If you remember the poll that i made few months ago, this was the kit that have the highest vote and therefore i choose this kit as the review kit this time. This project should have start and done on November but due too many of things happened in November and December, i had to postpone this review. I think i has mentioned before that i always wanted to get this kit and today i finally get it and doing a review for it. There is one thing always haunted me for not getting this kit especially this version because as what we can for other version were either come in yellow beige color or the brown gold color for the HD version. This is the only version that i feel best suit for this MS because the anime want to show it really in gold color but of course the gold color in the anime was not like what we saw from Akatsuki in Gundam Seed Destiny. And the curse of the gold plated kit, Bandai always like to make plated kit in limited edition which make us difficult to get one of it. In my country here, the normal version and the HD version were cost around RM 140- RM 150 ++ but this cost about RM 169 and most shop only carry.. very very few units. So if you think of making money from gunpla for limited item, this might be a good consideration. Although this gold plated version was so special, some people don't like it actually. One of the reason that people don't like the kit might due to difficulty of handling those gold plated part on the cutting process from the runners. Once you screw up, it is extremely hard to recover (there are some solutions such as applying gold trim "paper") and since this gold plated version is more expensive due to it's "gold plated part", those who think to re-paint or re-mod this kit might not favor to this version. As for me, some of you know my style on modding (low level or simple type mod... XD) my model kit and that is the reason i pick this version. 

Not like most of the UC fans, I only saw it from the ZZ series but not the Z series anime but the action from the ZZ series is good enough for me to think of what pose should made in part 2 of the review. Unfortunately, ZZ series was more kiddy type as compare to the Z series in my opinion although i haven't watch the Z series (it just my own feelings after watching some short clip of Z series). As for the design on this MS, it look great in the anime (the real kit seems a bit out in terms of its proportion). Weapons come with this MS is simple as it only come with one beam rifle, bazooka and two beam saber. I was wondering why this MS doesn't come with any defense equipment or mechanism such as shield. Does it share the same defense system with the Akatsuki (from GSD series) beam reflector armor from its gold plated armor? or it has the fastest agility to avoid all incoming attack (but i don't see it got lot of vernier or thruster)? I think i should check it out from the Z series. Maybe i should let you guys to check out the photos before i continue...

 Some how the color from the boxart for this MS look even better (IMO) than the real kit or the MS in the anime.
