1/35 Kenbishi Heavy Industries HAW206 Prototype by Kotobukiya (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
HAW206, a scorpion-shaped Think Tank made by Kenbiki Heavy Industries has been released by Kotobukiya. Let’s take a look inside the box!
The box is a little bigger overall than the MG Wing Zero.
6800 Japanese yen as you can see at the bottom, but save 20% at HLJ.com!
More fun here from Ghost in the Shell.
With some decent cover art, despite the seeming simplicity of the tank itself.
Scopronok would be proud of that tail.
A simple hatch, but overall, I’m a big fan of the graphic design they use around the box.
More included parts.
And guess who’s coming next? More Tachikoma fun.
Don’t expect a rainbow assault when you open the box.
The plates and pieces are well carved, though you’ll see lots of multiples.
That’s a huge B part.
I wanted to say 3D, but…
The small stuff to wrap up the plastic.
Even the polycaps join in the Gemini fun.
The manual shows off a simple but cool looking battle in progress.
With some sharp visuals on the inside cover.
The plate layout however clearly spells out the lack of variety in the plastic sheets.
A typical page, with a lot going on. Looks straightforward however.
I’m not sure if color splash page is the right word here.
Overall, it’s a positive unbox, with a lot of plastic included. The final product is subtly colored, which explains the lack of colors inside the box, but they look good next to each other. It also would serve as an excellent base for painters to really add some details and bring it to life. A solid manual has me excited to see it all put together! Thanks for reading everyone.
“Coming soon in Pacific Rim 2.”
“But we all know if the Tachikoma’s appear, they’ll be the real stars.”
