[Kit Insight] HGBF 1/144 LGZ-91[HWC] Lightning Gundam [Heavy Weapons Custom] (Customised Build)

Model Number: LGZ-91[HWC] Lightning Gundam [Heavy Weapons Custom]
Designation: Gunpla Fighter Kousaka Yuuma's Custom Made Mobile Suit for Long Range Heavy Assault

Designed primarily for Gunpla Battle instead of the Artistic Grand Prix, Yuuma's titular mobile suit is equipped with the Lightning Back Weapon System (itself armed with a beam cannon in the nose and a pair of medium missile launchers), a duo of heavy anti-mobile suit guided missiles and an auto-tracking grenade launcher for shredding enemy armour, in addition to a pair of beam cannons mounted on the side armour panels.

It also retains the Long Beam Rifle and its beam sabers, giving the Lighting far more combat versatility and flexibility in addressing tactical situations.

With this, Team Try Fighters would probably have blazed through the qualifiers more easily.

The Melancholy of Destiny

"For whom do we fight for? For whom do we die for?"

[Kit Insight] BTF MG 1/100 MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam (Painted Build)

Model Number: MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam
Designation: AEUG Variable Attack-Use Mobile Suit

A reimagination of the titular mobile suit piloted by Judah Ashta in the ZZ Gundam series, this sleeker, slimmer and far sexier version eschews heavy armour for superior agility, mobility and speed. The design however, may be a tough pill to swallow for some.

But not for me.

[Kit Insight] HGRC 1/144 G-Valkeryie (Customised Build)

Model Number: "G-Valkeyrie"
Designation: Single Production High Performance Close Combat Mobile Suit

Out of all the mobile suits introduced thus far in the G-Reco series, the G-Arcane is one of the few that doesn't want to make me pull my hair out (no, the G-Self is not amongst the few). Seeking to create a "girly" mobile suit modelled after my Dark Valkyrie in mobile game Kiritika, the original plan to use a HGFC Nobell Gundam was abandoned after checking its size and specs; something bigger and more substantial was needed.

[Accessory Analysis] HGBC 1/144 Ez-ARMS (Straight Build)

A weapon pack for your HG 1/144 scale Gunpla, the Ez-ARMS support weapon is a combination of the equipment from the Ez-SR Intruder and the Ez-SR Eliminator, namely the arm guards (minus the electromagnetic knuckles) and backpack equipment switchable between the Intruder's hi-mobility boosters and the Eliminator's 180mm cannon and missile pack.

[Kit Insight] HGUC 1/144 MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki (Theatrical Clear Ver,) (Straight Build)

The Hyaku Shiki is one of the first ever HGUC kits to be released, as such, the construction is basic, rudimentary but surprisingly sturdy and solid with the end product looking beautiful, The theatrical clear version of the Hyaku Shiki accentuates the colour and overall look of the kit, in certain areas even more so than the chrome gold limited edition.

Here's hoping that the upcoming HGBF 1/144 Mega-Shiki will use an updated mold, preferably from the HGUC Delta Plus or even a whole new mold entirely (fat hope).
