BLOG: Plastic Crack – HG/HGCE Force Impulse Gundam
This is Plastic Crack – posts
, usually of video reviews, that continuously stimulate the collector passion through demonstration of a figure’s features. More importantly, these mainly comprise of items in the CATALOGUE wishlist.
Technically this isn’t really part of the CATALOGUE wishlist since it has been purchased from the great people at HobbyLink Japan. Unlike the original HG Force Impulse Gundam where two copies were purchased, the initial plan for this one is to get only one. Was really hemming and hawing for the longest time if the opening shield gimmick via partsforming warrants another purchase. Didn’t really the felt the ‘transformation’ mechanism and eventually decided to get another copy altogether. Now the case is the opposite with the original High Grade. The initial plan was to construct one kit as the combined mobile suit and the other as its separate components. The simple transformation doesn’t really warrant a duplicate kit and so, the other one will be used just to build the shield in either open/closed mode. [via Dalong’s Gunpla Review]
