Finally after these few days I managed to complete my HGUC Re-GZ including taking the pictures and editing them. I must say this is one build that I enjoyed throughly! This will consist of my review followed by action shots.
First look out of the box
This is what you will get straight out of the box. Two beam sabers, the back weapon system (B.W.S) unit, one beam rifle, 2 beam sabers and connectors for the transformation gimmick. And a little bit of history from Gundam Wikia before we start.
‘The Re-GZ was an attempt from Anaheim Electronics to mass produce the MSZ-006R Z Plus R from the Gryps Conflict and the First Neo-Zeon War. The transformation mechanism was considered costly to mass produce and deleted in favor of a special Back Weapon System (BWS), which the Re-GZ was able to dock with to change to a Waverider-like form. Because the weapons of the Re-GZ cannot function when docked, the BWS is armed with additional beam weapons and missile launchers. Despite these changes, it was later decided that the Re-GZ was too expensive for mass production, so the project was canceled and only one prototype was completed.’
On a side note, it is the only mobile suit to have his own obituary photo haha….you can see it in this link (My favorite Keroro moment)
Close up shots from the top. I love the very thin antennae gives it a very sharp look. The paneling on the shoulder will need some cleaning up lol….this is what happens when you shoot too closely..all the defects just seem to pop out during the editing..
This is one of my favorite detail part. All those thrusters showing beneath the leg armors!
I also pasted some left over stickers from my other older HGUC kits. By default these are not included with the HGUC Re-GZ and I am really glad I added those tiny bits of stickers to cover up the bare looking skirt armor and shoulder plate.
Leg articulation is fairly good. However it is not able to do a very wide leg split. Due to the transformation gimmick, I really like it that the toes can be pointed down. Adds a lot of dynamism for the photos later on ^^.
Back Weapon System
Some shots with my old HGUC Jegan….sexy green is sexy lol…
Keep the gunpla fire burning!
