1/35 Rabidly Dog ST Ver. by Wave (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
Rabidly Dog is the versatile robotic tank piloted by Kiriko in Armored Trooper Votoms. This kit is from Wave, famous for their Sakura Wars and Ma.K Series. Let’s check out what’s inside the box!
Traditional cover art with a clear background. Very fitting, and the claw is looking quite good.
Smaller than even one of the smallest HG boxes, but more depth.
Here’s the manufacturers information. The price is 3600 JPY, but you can get 20% off at HLJ.com!
A few gimmicks are shown off on the side of the box, like the movable iron claw and mine layer.
When you crack it open, the blue color will pop right out at you.
The plates in alphabetical order. Good detailing throughout.
The manual shows it painted up by a pro, and it’s looking very sharp.
And the color guide shows you how you can do it too!
And if you don’t want to mix your own paints, you also get a double-sided promotional sheet of Gaia Colors that will work for this series.
Standard interior for the manual itself, with a fair bit of white space all around.
And here’s another insert. Will we ever get tired of color variations? I don’t think so!
Small seals in a variety of colors.
For some final thoughts on the unbox, it’s always good to have more options as a builder when it comes to series like this, especially if you like smaller scalse kits. The parts them selves are well carved, but the colors may not shine right out of the box as much as you might like. But armored troopers are always fun, so stick around to see it all put together!
