A great starter kit This was my first kit and I've already begun to form opinions about what I enjoy about the hobby and appreciate in kits. I would say there are some negatives to the design of the kit (which I'll come back to), but overall, it's posable, holds positions well, and has a number of configurations with the equipment to really make the look of the kit pop.
Frustrations that I've had mostly revolve around the swords and the torso to hip connection. The swords have round hilts and the hands are square, meaning that they just don't hold position and can't in any way be pointed down. I was able to put a spare polycap on the bottom to keep it holding, but that seems like a miss if I have to improvise. The hip connection is more minor, but because it's a loose connection to the torso to allow pitching the top half, I have to lean it far enough that it naturally holds position rather than being able to pose it and leave it. That said, one weak joint in the whole kit is a pretty small gripe for such a nicely designed kit.
My last issue is more of a personal preference, but some of the best parts of the design require sticker use, so if that's not your thing, you may want to look for a kit that can stand out simply with panel lining, but the iconic red on the shoulder is a sticker that is quite difficult to place well. Might be worth attempting to paint instead.
Amazing Build! Pros: Very good figure shape, has a nice intimidating look to it, easy build, looks great with panel lining, swords are very clean looking, and I was especially impressed by how simple and effective the wings are! Overall very good kit.
Cons: Only comes with one set of hands, fists that you can stick the sword in(really wanted some open ones for his pose ya know). Stickers, it has some pretty big ones for the head, and the shoulder ones that go under the power symbol are like...really wack. Easy fix by painting those instead of using the stickers.
The original beast The only downside are the really awkward feet. The backpack does fall off sometime and you have the paint some parts to make it accurate. Other than that, it's a really cool kit that would benefit from having a stand.
bael is awesome! this was the first hg model i put together and i had so much fun :D the only thing i'd say is with his duel swords and cannons, he is a bit back heavy so he falls over lots. might have to get a stand for him to rest on.
Great For Customs Or Standalone After handling both I'd sooner recommend the HG than the FM version. The proportions have been nailed, and the poseability and build quality are spot on.
The biggest downfall of this kit is it's usage of stickers instead of separate blue parts, but it's a HG what are you gonna do? (paint it)
All in all I love and recommend.
Finishing: Top Coat/Super Clear
