Non-scale Anubis by Kotobukiya (Available From HobbyLink Japan – HLJ.com)
Anubis, from Zone of the Enders (Z.O.E.), is looking sharp and well armed in this big kit from Kotobukiya. What’s inside??
After Jehuty and Vic Viper, Anubis is the third model Kotobukiya has made in this series.
My first impression of the box is: big! Twice as big as Jehuty HD Edition, and even a little bigger than MG Gundam 3.0.
A MSRP of 7800 JPY. But you save 20% off that at HLJ.com!
Let’s jump inside!
The cover of the manual and the art is looking very sharp. It gives me some ideas for lining…
The official color guide (they can’t break it down into multiples of 5?):
Brwon: 54% red brown + 20% neutral grey + 15% black + 10% white + 1% olive drab.
Black: 60% midnight blue + 30% neutral gray + 10% navy blue.
Gold: 50% diamond silver + 25% white + 15% orange yellow + 5% tan + 5% clear orange.
Pearl white: 90% diamond silver + 10% white.
Energy line: 40% white + 35% red + 22% orange + 3% clear yellow.
Sensor/camera: Base: 100% super fine silver; Coat: 60% clear red + 40% clear orange.
The pile of plates contained within.
Here is an individual plate, showing off the good lining channels and details..
One plate is from Jehuty, as mentioned in the manual.
The main colors, with multiple plates for each.
The other plates that should work wonders for display purposes. The small stand Plate P is also from Jehuty.
I’ll be doing a lining experiment for energy lines this time. I’ll try 2 plans, 100% Gaia scarlett and 80% Gaia limited fluorescent + 20% Gaia GP-02 red. Let’s see how it looks!
“You’ve got a really big box, but Kotobukiya kits always end up seeming a bit small compared to us. Let’s see!”
