[Gallery] Bandai Tamashii Nations Metal Build 1/100 GN-0000GNHW/7SG 00 Gundam Seven Swords/G
The final form of the 00 Gundam Seven Swords immortalised as a Metal Build figure for the 10th Anniversary of 00 Gundam!
While being a reissue of the very first Metal Build figure ever released, the 00 Gundam 10th Anniversary edition of the Metal Build 00 Gundam Seven Sword features the addition of the GN Sword II Blaster as well as a new set of markings by its designer Kanetake Ebikawa.
As a Metal Build figure, the attention to detail and quality is impeccable. The paint and decal applications are incredible and the figure has a very satisfying matte coating applied to every inch of the armour components. The die-cast frame is still very visible, glistening in the light and providing a nice contrast to the 00 Gundam's primary colours. The GN Condensers are also very perceptible and seem to have a subtle glowing effect.
The highlight of this version of the Metal Build 00 Gundam Seven Swords is definitely the impressive GN Sword II Blaster. A commanding presence even on the HG 1/144 model kit of the 00 Gundam Seven Swords/G, the Metal Build treatment elevates the GN Sword II Blaster from just "fearsome" to "extreme badass". While not as wide as the GN Buster Sword II, the GN Sword II Blaster is almost as long but more importantly, the latter is far easier to wield.
