User Content (UC): MG Full Armor Gundam
Submitted By: Ghostychan
So, as Syd asked in the previous episode of Gunpla TV – ‘what’s your kit of the year?’ (no accurate quote) – well, I only bought 4 2010 kits this year, so the choice was easy for me – the MG Full Armor Gundam!
Why? Either because I wanted to order the old grade kit just weeks before the announcement, and was really thrilled, or because it just feels much more ‘military’ than the festive RX-78-2,…. and it’s green! Reminds me of a Zaku! And we all know, that everyone loves Zaku!
Well, I tried to install a LED inside the head – and it worked, and the wire runs all the way from head to toe, making it not visible – I wanted to use a solar lamp as energy source, but for whatever reason, this doesn’t work anymore,… so I might just end up using 2 AAA batteries and a switch instead,…. anyways, onto the Gundam itself.
The FA Gundam has, like the name suggests, additional armor – being able to remove the armor and slap it on is nice, however, having painted mine, I don’t want to do that too often, and the PU strips just suck, so I glued them onto the standard RX-78-2 Armor,… yea, I know, gluing PU doesn’t work that well, but it’s enough to beat gravity. Other than that, I can’t really find any complaints on this model kit, except for the V-Fin to be green – I painted mine ‘white’, in order to make it stand out. Also – I may not have that much knowledge of the science of the Universal Century – but placing the Beam Saber right underneath the backpack thrusters? I hope the beam sabers don’t go *boom!* >_o
Long story short – besides these PU strips, you have some nice RX-78 2.0 in some military colors,… or at least green.
Now, if Bandai would put the MG Gelgoog Cannon back on their production schedule, I could have a nice antagonist for the FA Gundam.
