I have here an out of the box review of SD Archive God Gundam, he is number 3 in the SD Archive series. So far I only got series 3, 6 and 7. SD Archive versions of Gundam are rare nowadays, I was just lucky enough to get a few from my gunpla source. So far I am really happy with this kit or toy, whatever you want to call it. But this one is already built so I would prefer to call it a figure/toy.
But enough talk I guess, now we move to the review part.
As I have mentioned, I only have 3 SD Archives. GP02A, Nu and God Gundam respectively.

As you may have noticed, the box is a bit dilapidated. It only proves how old the box is… What is important is the Mobile Suit inside 🙂
Now, getting God Gundam out!
A one page manual
the package contains the MS, a spare hand and a weapon set.
MS is mostly painted. But me thinks it needs a bit more panel lining. I will try to weather it a little bit.
Arm articulation is very limited. Same goes with the head.
That is as far as the legs can spread and split.
swapping of hands happens here
Why should the shining/burning finger always look like the hand of a Ninja Turtle?
There is a mechanism to open the wings and front armor when closed. You just need to press the backpack on the thruster area
has a strong recoil when it opens up!
it automatically pops open
Against MC SD Nightingale (the biggest SD I have)
Against SD Sinanju
Against 1/100 Nataku

An overall great buy. Don’t hesitate to get one if you manage to see it somewhere.
