1/100 MG Strike E + IWSP Review

Man I’m such a lazy blogger. I’m also a lazy person in general AHHAHA XD

I finally finished my Strike E + IWSP(Intergrated Weapons System Pack) today and I shall do a review of it starting…..now!

*If you have a slow internet, be prepared to get laggy! Many many pictures are posted! You have been warned XD*

Those pictures were taken before adding the decals and stickers.

Now for articulation pictures:

Leg can go front up that high

It can go back that far. Foot bends upwards just like any other master grades

Arm bends as usual. Double jointed. Theres also a joint on the wrist which allows it to go up and down

The articulation is pretty awesome. The pictures don’t do him justice. Well mostly because I’m not that good at taking photos =P aahhaha.

Strike E has probably one of the best articulations aside from the version 2.0 master grades *stares at Zakus* But again like I said, this is my second gundam build so that’s not saying much. Who knows, maybe the other 8 gundams have better articulation than Strike E.

Now that articulation is out of the way, let’s get to the decals, shall we~

Dry transfers and warning stickers. Typical

After a few hours of adding the decals and stickers, I am finito!

Added the decals to Strike E and his weapons.

That’s alot of weapons! 11 altogether! And if you include those..erm…anchor?harpoon? long strings with sharp thingies at the end?, then you’ll have 13 weapons! Let’s take a look at the weapons:

His 2 most awesome looking weapons. The Intergrated Weapons System Pack(IWSP) and his beam gattling gun/shield combo

Damn shitload of weapons! LOL

I’m guessing he’ll never run out of weapons. By the time you destroy all of his weapons, you’ll be so tired that he can just poke you and die Hahahahhaha XD

Kneeling pose. You can see the pilot Lukas ODonnel in the cockpit, unpainted

When you add the IWSP onto Strike E, he becomes undeniable back heavy. The picture below was achieved by bending his knees and making him pose like he’s about to crap or something LOL

Im ready to crap!*cough* I mean kick some ass! Wooo

I'm ready to crap!*cough* I mean kick some ass! Wooo

Put him on a stand and he can pose much more easily.

Posing time with his dual handguns!

Dual handguns FTW!

Matrix mode~ Woooo
John Woo style leaping with dual handguns LOL XD

The 2 handguns are pretty awesome indeed *thumbs up*

Next we shall look at his 2 rifles with grenade launchers:

I look cool dont I~

"I look cool don't I~"


Dual rifles are always better than one!

I like the green foil sticker they included for the 2 beam rifles. Here’s a closeup:

Now for poses with the other beam rifle:

Freeze!

"Freeze!"


Nothing special about this beam rifle. It’s probably the standard issue rifle most gundam use XD

Now let’s see his awesome gattling gun:

Come get some!

"Come get some!"









You cant touch me fool!
“You can’t touch me fool!”

Yesh, the awesomeness does not stop there LOL, Next up, the anti-ship swords!

At first it was white like..plastic white look, exactly the same as Strike E’s armour pieces, probably even lighter. I thought to myself, “that’s not gonna fly!” or something along those lines and decided to paint them chrome silver XD I don’t think I did a good job though but whatever, there’s a first for everything right?

This wire is quite tough, it can even support Strike E’s own weight! I’ll show you in the following pictures:

~Amazing~

Spiderman ripoff? bwahhahaha

Now youre batman!? Do you have an identity crisis Strike E? ahahaha

Now you're batman!? Do you have an identity crisis Strike E? ahahaha

Yup, that is all.

Final thoughts? FUN. Yes, Strike E is very fun and posable(poseable?) He just has that look to him that suits more dynamic poses than just standing there, I can’t really describe it.



With 13 weapons, there’s just so many things to do. Variety is the name of the game. The only weird thing though is that he doesn’t come with any beam sabers. Isn’t it like a tradition for every gundam to have a beam saber? But who cares! You got 2 other anti ship swords to play around with!. The white that the grand slam and the swords originally looked is a bummer though, I suggest painting them silver or chrome or anything flashy looking. White swords does NOT look intimidating. Practice painting before doing this though or you’ll end up with my results. Shitty looking paintjob Hahahahha XD


Sayonara!!
Sayonara!!

So what’s next? Who knows~…

Project Anaheim~ Officially my next project XD
Unicorn! Get ready to be built! Mwahahhaha~

    Hey. I just bought this MG kit today. N could u pls give me some advise on wat should i take note when building it? And did u use any topcoat or any extra modification? Exp: apply putty, compound? any extra? pls give me some light..

  4. eighteleven says:

    Huwei: Hmm, I didn’t really run into any trouble while building him. If you’ve built any of the strike variants such as aile strike or sword strike/strike launcher, then you shouldn’t have any problem. The only thing that was hard to clean off the nub marks were those small yellow triangles on his shoulder pads. They’re tiny and hard to hold on to when you’re trying to shave off those annoying nubs. Ooo another thing to note is that there are 2 screws included for the shoulder joint which is a pain to screw if you don’t have the right screwdriver. I gave up and didn’t screw it in. I don’t think you’ll need it anyway.

    For modification, the only thing I did was paint the swords with chrome silver paint. I don’t topcoat my models since I can’t find any semi-gloss or matte topcoat in my country -.-“
