[Kit Insight] HG Gundam Seed 1/144 MBF-P01-Re2 Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina Custom (Gunpla Expo Exclusive) (Light Build)
The pee gold of non-plated kits are just sub-par as compared to the shiny-ass awesomeness of chrome gold. It just accentuates the sexiness of the kit to dizzy heights. Coupled with the clear black parts of this limited edition Amatsu Mina, the completed kit just looks superb.
But an Astray still needs its katanas.

Limited edition version of the HG Gundam Seed Destiny Gundam, with glittery wings of light! The stickers however, are from the original version, so do not really mesh well with the clear version.
As with the normal version, the Destiny still suffers from balance issues stemming from those massive wings. Nevertheless, it is still a beauty.

Model Number: MS-15-2C Gyan Mass Production Type [Commander Custom]
Designation: Zeon Command-Type Mid Range Support Mobile Suit
Not overly outlandish for UC engineering standards, the Gyan Vulcan developed by Susumu Sazaki in Gundam Build Fighters Season 1 represents a rational development pathway for the original prototype Gyan. Had the Gyan been slated for mass production over the Gelgoog, the final outcome of the One Year War might have been different.

Big mean deep striking machine.
Or so it was envisioned.
The concept and design is good and all, but the execution failed to do this giant any justice. Non-fitting parts, loose components, poor colour separation, absence of foil stickers (even for the eyes), an imbalanced frame and many more building and design issues mar an otherwise impressive kit.
Such a pity.

After teasing us for an agonising two months, we finally get a proper look at an honest-to-God actual product model and box art of the upcoming Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam, with decals and all. Bandai also released a number of photos showcasing the gimmicks and features of the kit.

That [Destroy Mode] Unchained.
Seriously, just watch the 5-minute long promotional video for the Gunpla. If you haven't had a reason to buy this bad boy, this is it.
