HG 1/144 Gundam AGE-1 Normal Review | OOB Build

Been hearing a lot of good stuff from this 1/144 HG Gundam AGE-1 Normal model kit that is why we bought one to give you an out-of-the-box-build review and to see what is good or what is new for ourselves. It seems Bandai have done a nice job on this one. The articulation is great, the color separation is good and the details are sharp! I think I will recommend this kit to those who wants to start on with collection Bandai Gunpla. For us this is comparable to an RG (real grade) model kit. I think now I know why Bandai was all out on advertising Gundam AGE.

There is supposed to be a coupon for the Gundam.info contest inside… but here in the Philippines, the sellers remove them and they are the ones entering the contest…  😦

BUILDING THE KIT

 

 

 

 

Body unit

The parts are nicely separated which makes it easier for those who would like to paint their kits.
