Here’s the 3rd Frame “Unarmed” Girl Materia. Let’s see what Kotobukiya has in store…
The box is a little bigger than a regular High Grade kit.
You can see the price of 3600 JPY in the corner. This is actually a fair price for Kotobukiya, but don’t forget you can get 20% discount at HLJ.com!
Loads of optional hands and three different faces are included.
If you’re looking to add some armaments, M.S.G weapons and more can be used.
When you crack open the box, you’ll see all these plates, though you might be a bit surprised by the amount of space around them.
The cover of the manual has the same art.
The manual is in brochure form. It shouldn’t take too long to build.
Colored pages on the other side give you the official color guide, posing, and weapon options.
Here are the plates shown in alphabetical order.
Pre-painted faces, hips, and collar.
Optional hands are wrapped in plastic bags, too.
A small set of water slides is included for the eyes.
Some final thoughts: The Frame Arms Girls line has been a hit since it first came out in terms of its mobility and sculpting. However, it’s a little bit surprising that even though this is only the 3rd kit in the lineup, Kotobukiya went straight to the unarmed version. The focus has always been on the arms and armor, so this will clearly be a bit different. When it comes to the humanoid figures, how will the mobility stack up compared to the usual blocky plamo robots? Let’s find out in Part 2!
