I received my Exia yesterday! Premium price too! I’ve always wanted a master grade version of Exia ever since I saw the No grade version. I usually don’t buy no grades and I was so tempted to buy Exia until I heard the announcement of the Master grade version. I quickly preordered it and well, the rest is history.
Lets start the work shall we?
Well, I don’t have to show you the unboxing since I already did that here so let’s just skip to the construction part.
Day 1 of construction(10/08/09)
As always, I will start with the head construction first.
The parts for the head. Those yellow vents on the cheeks are seriously THIN! I broke one of them by accident while trying to clean out the nub marks, good thing I had some tamiya cement lying around.
Completed head! 5 foil stickers altogether, 1 for the eyes, 2 on the side of the head(behind the green orbs) and 2 for the head cameras I guess
Parts for the GN Drive which also includes 2 metallic parts and 2 LED lights *thumbs up*
Completed GN Drive. That transparent base is the compartment to keep the GN Drive when not in use
Parts for the upper body inner frame
Back armour piece, cockpit hatch and the GN Condenser orb for the chest
Final armour pieces for the upper body
