MG 1/100 Sandrock EW | Gundam Wing | OOB Review

We have here an out of the box build review of Master Grade (MG) Sandrock Endless Waltz (EW) version. This Mobile Suit came from the series Gundam Wing and was piloted by Quatre Raberba Winner. Moving on to our review… Based on what we experienced, we are really satisfied with this kit. Buying it is worth every peso, we bought it for 1800 pesos and it was all worth it. The plastic quality is good, in fact when the kit was finished, it felt like it could withstand a 3 feet drop haha. MG Sandrock’s engineering was superb, knee joints, shoulder joints and the waist skirts where the parts we liked the most. We were pushing it to do dynamic poses and it seems to do well. Overall we give it a rating of 10 out of 10 (we really loved the heat shotel effect).

Gundam Wing mobile suits are really compact as seen below.
The inner-frame construction is very tight and simple

This is the part I loved about the skirts. The construction was really simple, sleek and durable at the same time.

Typical Gundam EW hands (remove fingers to attach something). Maybe because they are smaller than normal 1/100 kits that is why their hands are like that? Hehe
