Master Grade Destiny Extreme Blast Mode is a special version of the normal master grade destiny. It comes with chromed plating parts, a few special effect parts and the most important inclusion(for me at least) the wings of light effects! Oh and the decals are mostly in gold/bronze instead of the usual silver.

Also included are clear figures of Shinn Asuka and Kira Yamato

I bought him last time in Singapore, can’t even remember the price anymore >.>

Construction didn’t really take that long. 5 days if I’m not mistaken? Nothing particularly hard either. Just ugly nub marks when I took the chrome parts off from the frame. Why wasn’t I pissed as much compared to unicorn? Well that’s because unicorn has it all over his body making them very visible. And most of the nub marks on the chrome parts aren’t really THAT visible.

We shall start with articulation for this kit:

The head can spin a full 360 degrees

The leg can bend out that far. I dont know if you can bend it out further cause I was too scared it might break. The joints are really stiff by the way.

I love the armour panel separation on the legs for this model kit. Pay close attention to his thigh armour

When bent on the upper joint, the thigh armour slides to show the chrome parts. Now pay attention to the knee armour

This is one part which is implemented better than force impulse. The pistons on the foot can slide out too but this time it wont slide out fully which means no problems!

And finally the peg that joins the wings to the jetpack can be pulled out abit for further articulation! *thumbs up* Mine are kinda loose now though .

That’s it for articulation. As you can pretty much see, the articulation on this model is top notch! The joints are stiff and the armour separation on the legs are amazing! You can probably tell that the panel lines are ugly. You see, my black gundam marker is kind of being an ass and won’t fully ink the lines. Ah well~

It’s posing time!

Final thoughts:

Well This kit was definitely interesting to build. Had quite a few runners too. The wings of light alone are definitely worth getting the Extreme Blast Mode for! But then they give you chromed parts too and some special effect parts like that effect that he uses when he throws the boomerangs. Yes I did not pose him with his beam rifle since..well..there was no use to it anyway. Get it or not depends on what you think is worth it. If you don’t care about the wings of light and the special effect parts then don’t buy this. You might as well just buy a normal version and paint the parts chrome yourself. If you think the WOL are awesome then get this! Either way, Normal version of EBM version, you won’t regret buying this kit!

Pros:
– Alot of special effects to play around with.
-Chromed parts.
-Stiff(can stay in the pose longer).
-Comes with a stand.
-Leg armour separation.
-Many gimmicks.
-Very good articulation.
-WINGS OF LIGHT.

Cons:
– Chromed parts leave ugly nub marks.
-Stiff(might break if too much force is used).
-Swapping the hands alot leaves the polycap wider and this makes the hands VERY loose.
-Cannon has no use except for that one pose.

In the end the choice is yours and yours alone. I’m completely satisfied with this purchase and that’s what matters the most ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway Here’s a short scene between Destiny and Exia:

Some noob: ORE WA GUNDAMMM!!!

Some noob: ORE WA GUNDAMMM!!! Destiny: WTF? Who's that?

Destiny: Wtf!? I missed?!

Exia: Heheh Im faster than you noob!

Exia: Heheh I'm faster than you noob!

Exia: Huh? Whoa shit!
