We just want to bring attention to the very strange fact that the first mech released in model kit form from a brand new anime wasn't the main character, but rather.... one from a serialized monthly Hobby Japan side story?? Interesting decision, but we won't complain because the design of this model is so incredible! Plenty of articulation gimmicks and features will give you a ton of posing options upon completion, whether you're familiar with the source material or not!
Not gonna lie, we love this thing. It's like they took all the best weird elements of G-Reco and IBO and crammed them together. Is this some kind of Grimoire Geirail Shiden Catsith? If not, I declare ... (learn more)

I just want to say that the most amazing thing about the engineering of this kit is that they apparently put more parts-per-inch into the shoes than anywhere else in the entire thing. Look at the arti... (learn more)

Fun Little Kit!
I normally don't like HGs, I prefer RGs for 1/144 scale models, but I picked this one up on a whim and I was surprised how much I enjoyed this kit. It's a straight forward build, but the joints all have a great range of motion and I found myself happily posing it while still building it up. It has no trouble holding these poses too! The only down side was the color correcting sticker sheet, it's decently big for a kit this size. Pretty much everything that's yellow/orange that's not on the head is a sticker. However I found it still looks great even without the stickers. If you like the design and are looking for a fun quick build that's a delight to pose, this is a good bet.

I'll be honest I wasn't sold on the Kyoukai Senki designs initially (except the Bunyip that thing is awesome!) but having now built this kit, Kenbu, & the Bunyip I have come to really appreciate the mechanical design of these mechs a lot. Kyakuchi uses almost the exact frame as Kenbu but has far better accessories in my opinion as it comes with a nearly exact rifle (except with a drum magazine), a proper shield, & the back mounted rocket pod. My only gripe about the design in that the horn feels arbitrarily tacked atop the head & it's connection point on the kit feels a little flimsy.
The kit is of exceptional quality & the part separation is quite good (pic attached does not have stickers). What makes these kits shine is the unique designs & how well they've been executed as models. They are well articulated, nicely detailed, & will surely be excellent kitbash fodder for those who dabble in such things.
