1/100 REX Black Ver. by Kotobukiya (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
REX is all dressed up in black, so let’s check it out all put together!
Some final thoughts. For me, right off the hop I think this kit is absolutely worth the price. I enjoyed the build start to finish, and really liked the way the parts are designed and sculpted. Everything feels quite stable together, and even when putting it through its paces for poses, there were no risks of anything coming off. One of my favorite parts though is the details that come right out of the box. They’re deep and incisive, and really add to the war machine look. I feel it’s a great military model for both beginners and pros. For beginners, you can easily get a nice-looking metal gear with a good number of angry poses just with a simple build. And it would be even better if you spend some more time on water slides and a flat coat if you want to go intermediate. For pros, as it states in the manual, the reason why this kit is in black is for people to paint it more easily. For those who like to do military models, and get them all dirty, scraped up and generally looking like something in the field, this seems like it would be a treat. Finally, I think Kotobukiya did a great job on this kit, from the plastic to the waterslides. It would be a cool look for anyone’s shelf. Or above your tube tv where you still play Metal Gear.. Thanks for checking this out!
