The box is the same as a regular High Grade, though much deeper.

More depth means more plastic, hence the price of 2800 JPY. But you can get 20% off at HLJ.com!

The side of the box shows some interesting neck mobility, and the hands ready for Stoner Sunshine.

Bright colors will pop right out at you when you open the box.

Using just plastic nippers, you could finish this in as little as an hour.

With the help of the action base, even more poses are possible.

For some final thoughts. I think this may be the best D-style kit in recent years. As we know, D-style kits are a little more expensive than Bandai’s SD line, and also more complicated, though this sometimes means little problems here and there. But with this kit, I feel hard pressed to find some negatives!  It’s simple, cool, detailed and doesn’t fall apart. With just a short amount of building time, you can enjoy lots of great poses and recreating scenes from the anime.  If you’re a fan of the series, I recommend you check this out!

“One day, I think we need more scale kits though.”
