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…
Contains 3 packs and a single sheet manual
There are 6 runners total including the polycaps
This is the torso/body
Still part of the torso – this will hold the shoulder and arm units
The torso, head and backpack.
below is the teeny weeny mono eye
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
Back pack attached
This is a really nice rifle… I am use this design on future scratch builds.
ARM and SHOULDER units
This part controls the shoulder armor
Exploded view of the arm
Attaching the shoulder armor to the arms
Need an extra hand? Anyone? hehe
Torso, arms and shoulder armor altogether
the whole LEG unit
It can bend that much
WAIST UNIT & FUEL TANK?
Oh yeah… I know what you are thinking *evilsmirk*
The hand needs to be separated to be able to hold the weapon. Very typical in HG kits.
Done! Now she stands!
The PINK SQUAD (so far)
The kit stands roughly at 5 inches
Pink Bearguy is definitely taller because of the head
