Super model and great size! one of my favorites
Great kit looks amazing!
I've built a hand full of MG kits in the 4 years since I've been building and painting kits. This model however is either my absolute favorite or second favorite since I rank it at the same level as the newer RG Sazabi kit. Both kits are must have. If you plan on painting your kits, I suggest priming it once it's completely built so you know what parts that can been seen and need to be painted. Also you'll wanna look for impressions on parts from Bandai's molding process as I have had a few parts that needed sanding not just at the nub marks and edges but also some of the flat surfaces. This kit is easily the largest kit I have worked on so far. There are hundreds of parts and as long as you can follow the pictures step by step anyone could put this together. I do wish there was an english translation because in the back for the sections of the weapons it's showing you a weapon that this kit doesn't come with, I believe it's from the MG Sinanju where you can take the Sinanju Weapon and combine it with MG Sazabi's long range rifle to really create a very unique weapon. 5/5 stars for me.
I have no real complaints except for the way the shield mounts. It works, but it wears down fast and becomes unreliable over time. that's not enough for me not to rate it 5 stars but its close. Though, the lack of the treble clef symbol for the skirts is a huge let down
Be aware that this MG is almost the size of most PG kits, hence the big price tag. I will say it was worth every penny for the long and highly detailed build. The only downside is that the Sazabi isn't very articulate and accessories like the beam sword and shield tend to load down the arms and making posing difficult. Also, be aware that there are very few stickers so 95% of the detail comes from panel lining and wet/dry transfer decals which I have yet to add. There is also an LED option for the head unit so be sure to pick one up and not add stickers that might block the light.
