1/100 MG GNX-603T GN-X

Finally I've finish this kit. As always, I did minimal painting with this kit.

Front view.

Left side view.

Right side view.

Back side view.

Fully armed.

With beam saber on left hand.

Beam rifle with long barrel.

With cockpit opened. I choose Soma Peries as the pilot since there isn't much love for female pilot in Gundam lately. Note that this is not my 1st time painting a 1/100 scale figure.

Size comparison; next to 1/100 MG GN-001 Gundam Exia. GN-X is slightly taller than Exia.

Final verdict:
Being the first MG outside of Universal Century-line that isn't a Gundam, it's a pretty good kit itself. This kit also opens a possibility for a release of other MG GN-X variations in the future. This kit however has a lot of problems, but still it's not that of a big deal.

You'll love
  • Solid design
  • Decent articulations
  • Cheaper than a normal MG Exia
You'll hate:
  • Floppy legs
  • small feet aren't strong enough to support this kit's weight.
  • The binders. The top are on a secured connection but floppy while the bottom one pops of way too easily.

My score for this kit: 4.5 out of 5.0.

A little something extra ^ ^;
