The build itself seems like it might be just complex enough to be fun.

Some final thoughts. As an anime, King Kaiser is not as well known as Gaogaigar, but with this kit it’s really the gimmick that interests me. The box is surprisingly on the big side, even comparing to some scale kits of Kotobukiya so I’m hoping that translates into a fun build. D-style is one of the most popular lines in Kotobukiya, and it seems like it’s only going from strength to strength.  So stick around, and let’s see how it looks all put together in Part 2!

“Transformation and combination? That’s nothing!”
