introducing a review of the HGAC 1/144 X-GU01A Gundam Geminass 01
HG Gundam Geminass 01 is a 1/144 scale model kit of the main character “Gundam Geminus 01” that appears in “New Mobile Report Gundam W DUAL STORY G-UNIT”. The original mechanical designer Mr. Akutsu refined the design and made it into a kit in the latest format of new modeling. It is a kit that reproduces sophisticated and sharp modeling and details.
The price is 2,200 yen (tax included). Premium Bandai limited product.
“Gundam Geminass 01” is now a kit in HGAC. Due to the new format, it has been made into a kit with modern and stylish proportions different from the 1/144 Gundam Geminas 01 (hereinafter referred to as the old kit) released in 1997. The aircraft name “Geminass” comes from Gemini, one of the 12 constellations.
Although it’s a small machine, it has a lot of detailed information, and I think that it is a highly complete kit that also realized fine color coding by parts. The new structure found in elbows and rear armor also has a fresh taste, and I felt that I was pursuing a structure different from the previous gunpla.
On the downside, the shoulders and elbows don’t move much, despite the slenderness, so that feels a bit wasteful. Also, since it is a KPS parts configuration, there are parts that are likely to become loose when moving around. It may become dull over time, so it might be better to consider reinforcement.
The proportions are also stylish compared to the old kit, and I think that the cool feeling is well expressed. This time it’s only the base Geminass 01, so I was looking forward to combining it with the units that are planned to be made into a kit.
