Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you, and instead of putting loads of pictures of happy people at parties over the last 3 days, I decided to be different and put pictures of one of my birthday presents.
Guess which plane isn’t so plain.
Space-age carrier versus unidentified aircraft.
But wait, it’s a robot in disguise!
Meet Saviour Gundam, ZGMF-X23S, 1/144 scale model High Grade Gundam Seed-24.
If you’re not convinced that he’s a handsome bastard, here’s a closeup.
Ah, my other birthday presents are getting jealous. Meet (the belated) Bionicle Toa Hordika Vakama! (Don’t ask me who comes up with these names.)
Size does matter, and the Japanese warrior is no match for the German giant.
Transformers Alternators Silverstreak takes revenge for the Japanese (yeah the Alternators are American, but he transforms into a Japanese car.)
Saviour Gundam takes his position in the hall of heroes with the tiny, Gundam-feel Transformers Robot Masters Star Saber.
Do I like it? Majorly so! He’s even red for the occasion, ho ho ho. He even transforms, yo! I never knew how much detail went into a Gundam, or how many pieces were needed to ensure articulation and prevent it from being hollow. My only gripes were the fists, that needed to be disassembled to remove the gun.
