Let’s start the review

From the TV anime “Mobile Suit Gundam SEED DESTINY”, the giant variable MS “Destroy Gundam” is now three-dimensional in the HG series!
■Overall height approximately 390mm. Despite its impressive size, it can transform into MA form.
■Detailed mold expression unique to big scale.
■Joint mechanisms installed throughout the body allow for dynamic posing.
■Lock mechanisms are used in various parts such as the head, arms, legs, and back to improve the stability of each MS/MA form.
■Five fingers are movable at each joint, allowing for expressions. It can be assembled with the index finger to little finger attached to the runner.
■A large beam effect with a total length of approximately 260mm is included. By using polarized light molding, you can enjoy the change in color tone depending on the angle of the light source.
■The arms can be connected to an action base (sold separately).

The beam effects that can be attached to the fingertips can be attached to the fingertips of both bowls.

You can also attach effect parts to all the gun ports on the side of the backpack

Furthermore, effect parts can be attached to the muzzle at the tip of the shield.

Polarized molded effect parts with a total length of 26 cm can also be attached to the large turret mounted on the backpack.

The display pedestal can be selected as “floating” or “grounded” depending on the MS or MA format.

In addition, joint parts that can change the display angle are also included.

The head of “HG Destroy Gundam” uses a selectable sticker.
You can take advantage of the camera’s clear parts molding, or you can take advantage of the shine of the metallic sticker!

In addition, some parts of the gun barrel, arms, and backpack should be pasted with stickers first.
It is designed to attach clear parts, so the shine of the clear parts stands out even more

The shoulder armor on the arms can move a lot, and the arms can be raised to a horizontal position.

Furthermore, there is a movable axis at the base of the shoulder, so you can raise the entire arm.

There is a movable axis for rotation in each of the upper and lower arms.

Each joint on the fingertips is movable, allowing you to perform various expressions with your fingertips.

Next, let’s talk about the movement of the hips!
The waist is also used for transformation, so it rotates 360 degrees left and right.

The leg joints have appropriate holding power even though it is a large kit, and the posing is perfect!


Slide the chest part forward to release the lock, store the head in the chest, and then return the slid chest part to its original position.

Next, place your fingertips in the position shown in the photo. (Below)

Slide the arm shield parts outward.

Raise your arms laterally and slide your arms and fists toward your torso.

Finally, rotate from the base of your shoulders.

Next is the modification of the backpack connection arm!

Press the base of the arm protruding from the main unit with your fingertips. (Photo left: orange part)
Then pull out the entire backpack.
The lock will then be released. (Photo right: The arrow points are landmarks)

Raise the arm on the main body side to a horizontal position.

Next, rotate the backpack 90 degrees directly above the main body and lower it so that it covers your head and arms.

Rotate your lower body.

Push in the lock part on the knee part. (Photo: red part)
By doing this, the lock will be applied and the MA mode can be displayed in a stable state.

Bend your joints so that they form an inverted “dog” shape, and lower the claws of your toes, which used to be your heels.

The MA form of Destroy Gundam is completed.
