1/60 Gouf HY2M Glorious Series in box review.
Posted 14 September 2009 - 06:41 PM
This is a TEXT ONLY in box kit review.
The HY2M series of Gundam kits were about lighting up parts of 1/100 kits(Heads, Weapons, etc) and are more designed for display purpose.
The 1/100 Gundam Heads were actually very nice as they could be displayed on separate bases to form a Head collection, nice gimmig was the magnet that doubled as an On/Off switch.
Ok, onto the 1/60 Gouf as expected it is a large kit: Height 337,9mm Wide 177.7mm, Depth 114.0mm.
The kit comes with a 46 page Instruction Manual, majority of which is to do the wiring and lights.
Part counts is fairly low for the Robot itself, of course lots of stuff for the lighting in it. The wiring is NOT pre-done like on a PG kit, you will need to connect and trim parts/wires to the right length and shape.
So it works as a goods intro to add your own lights to other kits as everything is contained within the Robot like on a PG.
Now to the question that will many have how is the detail level and articulation on it.
Very minimal as said this is a lit display kit, not an MG or PG kit.
Internal skeleton is there but very basic, really there to hold the wiring, LED's, Body Panels, etc.
Most of the kit uses bolts and nuts assemblies so joints can be tightened and fixed.
There are 2 left lower arms(one lit and an unlit one where the fingers can be posed). Self contained unit with battery separate from body.
FYI, If you want to add the Bazooka, you will need to get the 1/60 HY2M Rick Dom kit.
Like I said really a display kit like the old 1/60 Cut-Away Zaku and RX-78.

But, yes, it would be easy to solder them instead, might actually be preferably as it would help keep the resistors better attached to the LED's.
