Raijin-Oh is all put together!  Let’s see how each robot works, and then the combination.

The empty plates and simple tools used.  No paint was added.

A great job by the model designers for the combination.

Completely armed up.

Can you find the bonus eyeball part (the arc Dharma)?  Only one color, and not particularly impressive.

This keeps up the same quality level as previous D-Style kits I’ve seen, with good looking individual robots and a great combination. It’s easy to build, but definitely seems more than just an expensive SD model. However, to make it closer to the proper anime colors, a lot of masking and painting is needed, especially on parts like the sword hilts.

“Bring it Bandai.  Let’s see who’s more colorful.”
