HG Extreme Gundam Review – 67.1%
Monday,
March 7th, 2011
No Comments



When I saw the prototype of the HG Extreme Gundam at the 50th All Japan Model Hobby Show I liked the shape and look of it even in unpainted form.  That day seems like so long ago now and the Extreme Gundam has finally arrived, but I remember my feelings at the time of the show and picked it up on the day of release.  How does it rate?


Overall Look: 7/10



I think the Gundam’s look does go along with its name. The upper half of the kit has a lot of sharp (extreme?) angles and the addition of the cool blue transparent parts are awesome. That weird looking head, though, I still don’t know what to make of it.


Colors: 5/10

As mentioned plenty of times already, the blue transparent parts are great, but other than that, there’s not much else. Lots of standard gundam white, which is rather un-extreme when you think about it, plus a tiny bit of red and yellow and the yellow doesn’t work for me on this kit.


Weapons: 8/10

This category gets such a high score due to the guitar-shaped beam rifle and guitar-case shaped shield.

Sweet!


However, and this is a big one, the beam saber is not cool transparent blue? What? Seriously? You mold part of a runner in transparent blue for the armor but not the beam saber which is usually a transparent piece? And the beam saber is on the same runner, right next to(!), the clear parts. Boo, Bandai! Fail.


Articulation: 6/10

(Jimi Hendrix!)
The articulation in the upper half of the kit is fine.There’s plenty of movement in the shoulders allowing the kit to pose in cool ways with its guitar, but the skirt and knee articulation are really limited. The ankles do actually move quite a bit but the lack of movement in the knees and hips makes doing so look unnatural.


Build Design: 7/10

The picture above highlights a problem which I think should have been handled differently. This piece keeps popping off when I move the arms around and is very frustrating. The clear parts are utilized well and the moving thrusters on the backpack are a simple, yet nice, touch. The design of the hands/wrist joints for holding the guitar are well done. The back of the head looks like it is designed to do or transform into something, which is kinda cool, but there’s no mention of it in the manual.


Fun Factor: 7/10

Anyone who has built an HG knows what they are getting into with this kit but the uniqueness of it does make it more interesting. Posing it afterwards is very enjoyable especially if you’re
like me and want to pose it in every Guitar God pose.


Extras: 7/10

Given that this is a kit designed from a game you do get some cool extras in the box even if you can’t use them. But free cool stuff is free cool stuff!


If I had to choose only one HG kit to build it definitely wouldn’t be the Extreme Gundam, but luckily I don’t have to make that kind of decision which means I have been free to build quite a few kits. The Extreme Gundam being quite different in several ways is a pleasant change from other HG’s despite some of its drawbacks. Someone mentioned how I should paint the guitar to match the ax of a famous guitar player, and just like that, creative juices are flowing.
