HG 1/144 Tieren Taozi | Gundam 00 | Review

Bought this kit months back because of the fact that it was PINK! Finally, we were able to have time to build it. So here is our little review of the HG 1/144 Tieren Taozi Gundam kit. This mobile suit was piloted by Soma Peries on the series Gundam 00. This kit really stands out on the 00 series because of it’s color. Sadly there is no 1/100 version of this. Fortunately, this 1/144 version was nicely done by Bandai. The articulation though not that dynamic is good for my taste. Also the color separations, plastic quality, polycaps and gimmicks makes the kit worthwhile. Definitely needs painting, but I believe the stickers will do well…

When I was building the head unit, I thought that it was just a part of the neck or the collar. Then I realized that it was already the head. LOL

The hand needs to be separated to be able to hold the weapon. Very typical in HG kits.
