Ahem, Excuse me. LOL
That is, afterall Domon’s favourite thing to say when he wants to call out his gundam xD
The Shining Gundam is Domon’s first mobile suit in the anime G Gundam, which has gundams beating the shit out of each other using martial arts and super powers and whatnot. It’s such an awesome/cheesy/corny anime that fans would have their mind BLASTED watching it as the surge of insanity rushes through. OK that’s just over exaggerating. Anyway, to those who has never watched G Gundam, Domon usually would snap his fingers and yell out “Gundam” at the top of his voice and OUT OF FREAKING NOWHERE, Shining Gundam would then appear. He comes out from so many random places including mountains, rivers, statues, you name it.
What makes Shining Gundam so powerful compared to the other fighter’s gundams is that it has a special attack where his hands become glowing green and he just grabs the head of another gundam, destroying the head with the powerful heat from his hands. Hardcore!!
Another interesting thing to note is that Gundams in G gundam are controlled not by using the traditional joystick/pedal/buttons configuration. The pilots themselves wear some special suit and goes into the gundam. What does this suit do? It allows the gundam to fully mimic every single action the pilot does. Isn’t that awesome!? So if Domon wants to do a punch or an uppercut, all he has to do is do the movement and Shining Gundam will follow whatever he just did. Freaking awesome!
He comes with a couple of accessories as shown in the pic below:
He comes with 2 beams for the beam saber(1 short beam and 1 long beam). He comes with 2 separate mask pieces when he goes into super mode. He comes with a pair of hands for holding the beam sabers and a pair of kung fu chopping-type hands and finally 2 beam saber handles(1 short handle and 1 long handle)
That’s all for weapons and accessories. Since he’s a close combat mobile suit, he doesn’t use any beam rifles or bazookas etc.
This master grade is pretty articulated for an old model. This is possible because of the “action frame” which is basically the foundation for the newer inner skeletons seen today on all master grades. The joints are mostly secured by screws but mine’s pretty lose since I couldn’t screw them in properly. I guess I’m just a noob that way. Let’s move on to posing.
Wooo~ The hands do glow with an awesome..glow LOL it’s probably due to my lighting I guess? xD
+Pretty well articulated
+Joints have screws which makes it hold poses longer(if you screw it in properly)
+Has rubber soles on the bottom of the feet! More stability?
+SHINING FINGAA!! Nuff’ said
-Doesn’t come with alot of accessories
-Joints will be super loose if you don’t screw in the screws properly(like mine T.T”)
-Does not come with any noteworthy decals or stickers
-Black stripes on the front skirt and ankle guard are stickers
-Rubber fists?! Wtf
Hmm, this is a pretty good model kit if you know how to screw the screws properly. The pros and cons might seem evenly matched but the cons are pretty much just minor nitpicks, nothing major. He doesn’t really need any other extra accessories since he just focuses on hand to hand combat. I wished the yellow parts were gold but then we can’t have everything right? So, for 2500 yen(around US$25/BND$40-50?) this model is well worth the money. Now if only God gundam was easier to find..
And the winner is Shining Gundam!!
While walking away, Domon encounters a box in the middle of nowhere..
