About this deal

To put that in more concrete terms, the Sazabi at 1/144 absolutely towers over almost all other suits in the same scale. I happen to have brain worms about how cool clear kits are, but if you’re new to this and want one, it’s worth noting that the clear plastic Bandai uses tends to be much harder and more brittle than their usual materials, to the point where it will dull knives and has been known to shatter nippers.

The Hasegawa hologram finish sheet is attached to the forehead sensor, and it is painted in clear green from above. If the contents of SNS and advertisement is different from product page,all the content on product page will be the final version. Even simple armaments like the arm cylinders and funnels, as well as propulsion mechanisms like the verniers and backpack, have been faithfully recreated. A newly designed realistic decals incorporating the MSN-04FF version of Sazabi is also included in the kit. The backpack also has the opening Funnel rack gimmick, along with 6 actual articulated funnels that can be removed from the rack and opened up in the “deployed” configuration.

To celebrate the 1st anniversary of Gundam SIDE-F facility, Bandai Spirits announces a limited and exclusive Real Grade version of the MSN-04 Sazabi SIDE-F version that appeared in the special production video of the life-size RX-93ff nu Gundam! Completely avoidable self-own here, but that’s perhaps to be expected from the man who oriented his entire life around revenge, and then still got distracted dogfighting a teenager for a while. Another three hours of decal application and, two more ripped decals, I’ve only managed to apply about 30 or so decals. The sheer number of moving parts Bandai managed to incorporate into their new RG release is a wonder to behold.

Add that to the fact that the arms are designed to be moved in a variety of ways, the stress that the hollow peg will have to endure is significant.Just FYI, water slide decals WILL betray you when you’re trying to take panels off to top coat, and this behemoth of a kit has A LOT of panels. Apparently, some builders have encountered issues during the assembly of the chest and shoulder connection. This Sazabi kit was created in pursuit of a realistic, detailed representation of the mobile suit from the series. Visually, clad in heavy samurai-looking armor and painted the customary red, it did not, under any circumstances, need to go this hard, but thank god that it did.

With actual machine verification unique to RG, this kit takes authenticity to a new level—right down to the propulsion section of verniers and backpacks. The left and right round molds on top of that are embedded with Evolve Works negative mold metal parts. A small chunk of the black rack is also able to slide out and away from the back of the rack for added gimmickiness.This has two major consequences, one that anyone could have seen coming, and another less predictable. Had some questions about the fitment of the metal V-fin, and upon review of some YouTube slideshows I noticed that I forgot two large metal chest subframe plates. The gun and shield are god – color-accurate and with loads of detail – but the highpoint to me is the fluorescent, almost neon, beam effect parts. The upper thigh joints can swing frontwards/backwards on a peg, raise horizontally, and/or rotate on each piece. The back of the knee had a parting line above the slit and looked bad, so I remodeled it using a plastic plate with a slit.
