All you need is a pair of plastic nippers, although a little bit of glue might be useful.

Front, side and back shots. Definitely not that bulked out.

The face and hair are well detailed.

The elbows can bend more than 90°, and the shoulders can move well, too.

The use of double joints in the knee makes more actions possible, but as you can guess the treads have to get in the way.

There aren’t many weapons in this kit, but the optional faces, hands, and even arm and leg give you a lot of options.

Here are some ready to fight poses you can easily pull off.

And by changing the right arm and leg, you can match the cover art.

She’s taller than a Real Grade kit from Bandai.

Some final thoughts. I think Gourai is quite successful in terms of a plastic model kit. She’s got a good mobility and a cool look, and would stand out on your shelf without doubt. It’s a good problem to have compared to loose joints, but her upper arms are a little bit tight to move around. Despite that, it’s still hard to have her hold the huge cannon due to the weight. If you wanted to level up and add a bit of paint, the whole kit would look even better but even right out of the box, I think Kotobukiya did a very good job. With the M.S.G. series offering more and more weapons that are interchangeable, it looks like the line’s future is bright. Thanks for checking this out everyone!
