More Pics: (grainy :s)





More Thoughts:
This is looking like a top kit, theres more pieces here then some HG's lol and its packed with nice additions, it can transform into wave rider mode for a start, comes with a base jabber and a stand that works by itself or allows you to have the wave rider mode flying above the base jabber and said base jabber appears to whorde all the spare parts, like the head whilst the kits in wave rider mode. Not bad for an SD, the eye piece is also clear red inside which you you put the normal sticker'd eye piece for a nice effect, also continues the recent BB fashion of having tiny little nubs which barely leave a mark, they need them on other kits asap.

Cant wait to build it, will post more info when i have

Hmm. Looks good. As much as I hate the Delta in any form this might just change that.

Why does an MS that can convert into a plane want a base jabber? Is it for when his widdle plane legs get tired and he needs a rest?

i've been wondering the same thing, i just assumed it happened for 3 frames in a unicorn episode so they included it in the kit also from the box art it appears they are not in space for this particular scene, perhaps the waverider mode doesnt work in atmosphere

snapped this together tonight, was a fun little build with only a couple of annoyances related to coping with the transformation, which, speaking off, is quite good for a little SD and actually involves a fair bit of part rotation and such with only one piece swapped out, you do remove most bits and put them back re orientated but still only one part to swap and the wave rider mode itself looks good too

The base jabber does, as i mentioned, double as a storage unit, all the parts left in either forms, including the spare hand and the base stand, can be stored in the bottom of the base, the base is also set up to handle the sd unicorn too, with the handles and such for the unicorn.

theres plenty of detail in the kit to bring out, alot of the pieces were used to build up the detail on the head and chest rather then say add real knee joints lol, but its an SD so thats fine, sticker use is minimal too, alot less then days of old, gives me good hope for the upcoming nu which looks to have a top color scheme that hopefully wont be stickers, the clear red to put around the eyes is a nice touch that adds some depth where its usually not found.

Iit does have a slight balance issue, which is easily offset with the gun, this is again from the efforts made for the transformation which causes the waist area to be a little touchy.

over all though it looks great and was fun to build with a nice transformation, more then worth $10
