Nendoroid Akashi Kai

Hello again! Here with another review! Today looking at the Nendoroid Akashi Kai. In the past I wasn't really too impressed with the Nendoroid line. (Click here to see the previous Nendroid review.) But with this Nendroid, and me being a fan of Kantai Collection, has changed my mind. So lets take a crack at this one.

First and foremost, here is the in-depth review.
Now for the rundown.
The first thing we are going to look at are the faces of Akashi.

The first face we have is the standard face, where she gives off a smile. 
 The next is the busy face. 
 Then the curious face. 
 One of the first accessories is a white ribbon that goes onto a peg on the back of her head. The bow has an effect of being blown in the wind. On a side note I forgot to mention the white headband is part of the ribbon, but it is two parts, the white headband part goes under the hairline. It is an optional part but I just forgot to take it out.

Next we have the hand held accessories. Just like all Nendoroids, she has interchangeable limbs for different poses. She will be demonstrating that though out the remainder of this post, so starting off the the wrench. 

"Time to get some work done." She also comes with some blueprints.
I'm not entirely sure what this is, but I think it is the thing that ignites a blow torch.

 Speaking of blow torch, we also get a welding mask! Which personally I think is the coolest thing about this figure.
And finally...THE BLOW TORCH!
"Time to fix up this boat."

 She also comes with a tool box and welding equipment. The tool box does not open.
Next lets equip the boat armor that our little repair girl has been fixing up.
It mounts onto a peg on the back, and in the review I may of stated what a pain in the butt it was to put on. If not, I'll tell you here. It was a pain in the butt to put on. But here it is. Akashi outfitted with her boat armor.



She's guns blazing with this nice effect part.




Pros:
  • Play ability in the armor. 
  • Well articulated. 
  • Lots of accessories. 
  • For a decent price.
  • An effect part.
  • Very cute. 
Cons:
  • Peg is a pain in the butt. 
  • A bit hard to get parts to line up.  
  • only one effect part. 
 
So, let see, I started off the review saying I wasn't really impressed with the Nendoroid line. But this figure has definitely changed my mind. All the articulation in not just the figure but also the boat armor. The little gimmicks in the armor is pretty awesome. The effect part just makes my day. The figure herself is not that bad either. The part swapping works and she just has so much going on with her that I couldn't put it down. So I really do recommend this figure.

Assault Kingdom Zaku II

Hey, I'm back with another review. Looking at the Assault Kingdom Zaku II. First and foremost a link to the youtube review is here. Now lets hit things off.

First off the figure comes with:

1 Zaku II
1 Stand
1 Recoilless Rifle
1 Zaku II Machine Gun
1 Heat Hawk
1 Commander head
1 Left open hand
1 Right open hand
1 left closed hand
1 right closed hand
1 angled hand.

The Zaku II comes with a Recoilless Rifle.



The Zaku II also comes with a Zaku Machine gun, commander antenna and a heat hawk.



Finally it comes with a stand.







The Zaku II is very articulated as well and very sturdy.


Pros
  • Very articulated
  • Very sturdy
  • Fair amount of weapons
  • Nice paint job
Cons
  •  I don't have the rest of the set to build the truck.
 Final thoughts, I really enjoyed this particular Assault Kingdom figure. Most of the time they are hit or miss, but this one was a real hit. Sturdy, articulated and a color scheme that doesn't really get hurt by the lack of colors on the assault kingdom figure. The Recoilless Rifle that it comes with give the figure more play value than most which only come with the standard armaments. I can only recommend this particular one, can't say anything bad about it.

GN Flag Custom (Gundam 00 10th)


Hello again! Boy it has been a while, but I'm here. Still don't have a proper camera, so still using what I got. So what is for today? A Custom GN Flag. Using an old HG 1/144 Flag I had lying around. Basically I just tuned it up, but with a bit of a twist. I put a GN drive on the back, just to mimic the GN Flag from the show. I really wanted to get the figure but I could never find out. So I made my own.

So why a Gundam 00 kit? Well basically it is the 10th anniversary for Gundam 00 and that was the Gundam show that got me back into Gundam as well other anime as well. So basically with out Gundam 00 I wouldn't be into anime or any of this. Heck I may not have a photography blog. So as a tribute to the 10th anniversary here is a custom I've been working on.











Again sorry for the quality, I don't have a proper camera yet. But this is part one of my little tribute to Gundam 00. I'm currently working on part two, but it may be a while till its done. So please hang in there.

Also I got a hold of this too...(don't judge me).

Till next time
