Earth Engine Impactor is all put together. Let’s take a closer look at the completed kit!

All you need as usual is a good pair of plastic nippers to put it together.

Front, side, and back shots. A very unique look for this guy.

It’s strange seeing the familiar Gundam colors rearranged,but overall the upper body looks pretty sharp, though lining would be a big plus.

The gorilla arms can bend 90°.

The knee can bend 90° too, but the hips can barely move because of the skirt.

The piece at the feet can be pulled out.

For optional parts, it’s got 2 blades, 2 wrist cannons, and 2 extra hands. The Earth Engine Ordinary cannot be put anywhere in the Earth Engine Impactor.

Here are some poses we can get with the swappable weapons.

As for the size, it’s the same height as Master Grade Gundam 2.0 when it’s elevated on its stand.

Some final thoughts. This is definitely a good kit, and it feels like a meaty build. When you put it together, you may think you’ll have to pose it carefully because some parts look pretty fragile, though nothing fell apart during this photo shoot. A few of the poses are a bit tricky to pull off because of the lack of mobility, and the polycaps don’t always hold like you might like them to.

If you want it to look better, you may also want to spend a little time lining or painting, but I think it looks pretty cool right out of the box! Thanks to its big buffed look and wild-looking hands and arms, it will definitely attract attention on your shelf. Thanks for checking this out, everyone!

  1. Hi rrobbert 🙂 I was wondering… are you ever going to come back to Gunpla reviewing? I know it sounds lame, but I really miss you, so I end up checking back on your channel every couple of days. I mean, I assume you quit given how little activity there’s been, but I can’t help checking anyway.

    Any answer would be appreciated… even a confirmation that you’re stopping. Then there’d be no need to check anymore.

    Just figured you’d be pumped to do the Double X… the Amazing Red Warrior… that sort of thing.
