Logicoma is the iconic mecha from Ghost In The Shell Arise. Let’s see what’s inside the box, then how it compares to its brothers!

The cover art kicks things off with a nice shooting scene.

The box is as big as a regular High Grade Universal Century kit.

The other side of the box shows all the gimmicks, including optional anchor shooters (with options), gatling guns, container and manipulators.

As you crack open the box, you’ll see that there aren’t many plates inside.

The manual sticks with the same art.

When you open the manual, you’ll see a brief introduction to the characters, and the mecha itself.

The building process doesn’t seem to be complicated, and you can see most of the plates are rather small.

Even the color guide is quite simple, with only 4 colors.  Of course, a lot of people will be excited about the included figures.

Some final thoughts. I was looking forward to this kit after building some previous Ghost In The Shell stuff. All of them so far are quite detailed, with a nice mix between military model style, and play value. However, this kit seems a tad on the simple side, but will the build and options pay off? Stick around to find out in part 2! Thanks for checking this out, everyone.
