The box is just a bit narrower than MG GN-X, and exactly the same depth.

A fair number of small weapons, along with gimmicks and action poses are suggested on the side.

We can see a lot of work awaits just by looking at the beginning of the manual.

Now for some final thoughts.  I was surprised when I first saw the size of the box. and that there are a lot of double plates.  Will it take longer than an average Kotobukiya kit, and will the dark colors look alright right out of the box?  I’m looking forward to seeing it all put together so please stick around!

  1. Rrobbert184, I like what you’re doing! More ML kits!

  2. Does it transform?

    • Nah it doesn’t transform. Super articulated though. Kind of a refresher if you’re mainly into gunpla.

  3. It looks better than average non grade gunplay..

  4. Hum, it looks cool.
