HG 1/144 Gaza-C | Gundam Sentinel | Review

We have here an out of the box build review of HG 1/144 Gaza-C which made its first appearance on the novel series Gundam Sentinel. We bought this kit first because it only costs 250 pesos during a TK sale at SM Mega and second is to be a member of our so-called pink squad. It is more of a dark pink but that will do just fine. Belonging to the new breed of HG kits by Bandai, this HG 1/144 Gaza-C has good part separation, nice articulation and durable plastic quality. Plus this kit can transform similarly to the wave rider mode of Zeta but not as complicated as that since Gaza units are known to be flimsy and breaks easily in Gundam battle (has a lifespan of 3 missions only) ^_^

Weapon

Knuckle Buster – Power output at 6.7 MW. This powerful beam cannon is linked to a large sensor on the right side chest of the Gaza-C, making it very accurate. It mounts on the backpack in mobile suit and mobile armor mode but hand-used when in mobile suit mode.

Step 2:

relocated the knuckle buster – place it on the backpack

Step 3:

turn the side armors 180 degress… then rotate the arms so that the armors are positioned behind the arms.

Step 4:

Then bend the unit into a 90 degree position

Step 5:

Now rotate the legs so that two of the fingers of the feet are facing forward like below.
then fold the fingers inward to make a claw

you need the crotch connector to attach to stand
