HCM Pro Destroy Gundam | 1/200 | GFAS-X1 | Review

Finally decided to open the HCM Pro Destroy Gundam 1/200 scale so we could give you guys a review of this toy figure. Yes this is not a kit that you can build, instead you just need to attached together the parts which are separated upon packaging. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think if I am not mistaken that this HCM PRO version is the biggest Destroy Gundam out there in the market. Also this is very hard to find (rare) nowadays. This toy is almost the same height as the 1/144 Psycho Gundam considering that it is only a 1/200 (smaller). Also it comes pre-painted, and they sure did a nice job on the details. Some say that this mobile suit piloted by Stellar Loussier shown in Gundam Seed is “BYG-ZAM + PSYCHO” combined in honor of the Universal Century series. Sadly it was killed by Freedom (which you could re-enact using this toy by the way ^_^)

  1. I like to see the 1/144 version of this kit, if there is one. But sure it’s almost the size of 1/144 Psycho Gundam. I also love the painting details, even in close up. sigh!
