Alteisen Riese has been the main mecha in the Super Robot War series since the PS2 era, so it’s fitting that he’s the first kit in a brand new line, S.R.D.S!

A cool cover shot right out of the gate!

The box is a little bigger than SD Neo Zeong.

The side shows the price of 5200 JPY in the corner, which is even higher than some of the scaled kits. But you can get 20% off at HLJ.com!

Though there’s a fair bit of wasted white space, It seems a bit more complicated than most kits.

2 pieces of horn parts are cut down for the bonus item. Would there be 2 sets in future?

Some final thoughts. As someone who’s always kept an eye on the Super Robot Wars line, and built a few scale kits from Kotobukiya, this is quite exciting as its the first time they put it in SD! Why not D-style? Because fans are asking for more! At the beginning, I thought perhaps it was a little pricy, but after seeing all the steps in the manual and the huge bunch of plates, instead it’s just exciting to get started. But here come the regular questions again: How well will it stay together? How will it look? How about the exciting poses from the game? Let’s find out in Part 2. Thanks for reading, everyone.
