    @Gabriel Contreras and now I want an S Gundam in red.

    I wonder if a ver.ka S Gundam is coming after the FAZZ? I understand the current S / Ex-S kit is more a v1.5 than a whole new kit.

    that FAZZ kit is so tempting. It may be the first new MG I pick up once I’m happy with the HGs I have.

    I doubt it. The S Gundam was for what it's worth, a near perfect model, but the 1.5 improved the proportions with the new parts from Deep Striker.
    FAZZ on the other hand is a two fold solution that gives them the ability to make a Full Armor ZZ, anime type and celebrate Sentinel.

    I've never built any of them but i'm more than familiar with their reputation. Mechanicore kits are infamous for horrible assembly experiences due to poor parts fitting.

    It looks like the HiRM series is finally getting some traction, pun of God Gundam's feet pads unintended. I'm curious to see what's next besides a likely exclusive Hyper Mode God Gundam..

    Building the Zero's shield, I had to take a few minutes to get a bow out of the long fin at the back end.

    The lower gray section wasn't sitting flush against the light gray layer, so this was a job for the ever handy desk vice and a touch of cement in the gap! Once that was done I put the rest of it together.

    I really don't care much for the sliding track pile bunker tip, but this looks nice. I'll get around to transforming the finished kit into Neo Bird Mode once I get the wings built.

    I just need to touch up the paint on the back set and work my way to the big feathered wings.

    Now I want a hirm shining gundam especially since it has more hatches to flip open once it’s in super mode.

    As cool as that would be, I think I would prefer a Shining Gundam 2.0 MG.

    Mostly because that could potentially mean an RE/100 Devil Gundam.

    Starting with a Fuunsaki.

    I mean, people go absolutely nuts over the Mobile Horse HG for customs since, well, it's literally the only option for customs and I've seen some SICK custom work combinations. Kimaris + Fuunsaki is an obvious, excellent example.

    Just imagine what could be done with a MG Fuunsaki.

    Gold plated exclusive and metallic injection clear exclusive lel.

    I'd settle for a real HG Fuunsaiki, not the glorified stand that comes with Master. Also, Nether and Tequila.

    1. My G gundam right shinguard armor break in half for no reason.
    2. The head is a pain in the ass to get it right.
    3. Sticker :confused: :confused: :confused: 
    4. Limited side to side ankle bend

    Other than the above, this kit is the best kit in HIRM line so far, god like articulation

    Yeesh. fixable break at least?

    -
    Zero's coming along, I attached the back wings, and they've got a loose fit about them, but the real trick is finding a good center of balance where they're not dragging on the ground.
