MC SD EX-S Gundoom | Model Comprehend | Review | OOB Build

It has been a busy week for me at the office. Well, that does not stop me from building my beloved Gunpla. This time we have an out of the box build review of Model Comprehend SD EX-S Gundoom. This is the latest kit released by Model Comprehend. Bandai does not have a SD EX-S kit so I am glad MC made one. This kit looks like the B-Club/Level F Deep Striker, well without the big gun and tons of boosters of course. Overall I will give the kit 9/10 because I really hated the knee part, it keeps on falling “accidentally” most of the time.

Batteries included, an LED, a spring and some metal contacts.

Foil stickers… 😦   I managed to destroy some of them…. There is a bit of water slide decals though 🙂

HEAD UNIT

 

Well, this part must be the hardest part to build… The switch mechanism for the LED is a pain… and it does not work well either… I say this because I am good with wirings and stuff, but this one failed me…

The face part can be easily removed. And you have 3 choices on what foil sticker you want to put on the eyes… I decided to use the black outline sticker so the the LED light can be seen easily.

Lighting the LED requires you to press the grey back part of head. It was suppose to a one push ON and one push OFF switch but the spring/gear mechanism doesn’t just work in harmony. I tried to clean the plastic but still it does not stay in place when I turn it on… I need to hold the switch to keep it turned on.

WAIST and LEG UNIT

I really hate the knee part since MC did not have a peg or something to keep the part in place. It will fall most of the time when trying to achieve a pose.
