Ok that’s it, I’ve had enough of this master grade. I know this is supposed to be a review of him but BLAH I give up! He’s just so uncooperative, I’ll just put most of the pictures during my so called photoshoot with him and leave him be in a display pose. It’s been a month since I finished him and only now have I started to review him. Shows you how much I dislike him ><”
First up is articulation. I don’t need to type out every single part for his articulation since the pictures can do the talking BUT I must say, Exia probably has one of the better articulations in the master grade lineup.
As you can probably see from the pictures above, Exia is pretty well articulated. Just look at how his foot can lay flat even during that split. But more articulation means more unstableness. I’ll just get back to ranting later.
Now Exia fully equipped:
Exia has a nice look to him. I may keep on ranting about his uncooperativeness but I can’t argue how badass he looks. Sigh if only they spent more time developing this kit.
Lets have some poses shall we, first up, fist fight!
Now with his GN long and short blade:
So where to begin? I just have so many complaints with this model that this might as well be a rant page instead of a review T.T”
He.is.bloody.loose! There’s loose parts everywhere! His beam sabers flap around like theres no tomorrow, the GN blade holders on his legs are the loosest(ahhaha) parts I’ve ever seen. They’re like small ball pegs? I dunno man. They’re just so loose!! His shield and GN sword have this peg like thingies that slot it onto his arms. Thing is they just slot in and there’s nothing to hold them firmly. His hand pegs are smaller than the holes on the GN blades so they’ll just come off from time to time during posing. His decals are so small that you might as well not put them.
But the main offender here is the legs, more specifically the joint that connects the foot and the leg together. They’re like different pieces connected by this weak ass ball joint that allows a wide range of articulation for the foot BUT this makes the model more prone to weak foot. I’m not even making sense anymore as you can see from my sentences. I just hate this model so much! He looks cool and all and his LED GN drive is awesome but gimmicks aside, he’s so unstable they’re not even worth it anymore.
Say what you want, hate me or whatever, I seriously have so much against this model I just don’t know why. Believe me, I tried to like this model and even intended to redo the photoshoot in the future but I don’t think I’ll do that anymore. I was so excited when they finally announced a master grade exia and couldn’t wait to hold this badboy in my hands but after building him and trying to pose him, I realised how much this guy just..sucks.
The good points? I don’t know ><” He looks cool I guess? He has a badass assortment of swords..and…he’s exia. I know alot of people are going to flame me if they ever read this review but I don’t care. This is my opinion and my own blog. Sorry for the long ass ranting, I just had to let it out. Whether this is a review or not, it’s obvious how much I dislike this model xD
Good day people.
