It's the Toei Animation! Steel Jegg is not Sunrise Animation!
One of the best HG scale kits I've made. Now, before I start off this review, I haven't yet fully completed this kit at the time of writing this review(partly from my own schedule and the extra time kit customization can take), but I think I've built this kit enough where I can come to a pretty accurate judgement of the kit.
Jeeg is one of those Go Nagai designs which I slightly wouldn't have imagined seeing in the infinitsm line, due to the rest of the line either focusing on or using bodies similar to the Mazinger series. However, I'm very glad that Bandai included Jeeg this "early" on in the line, as the Jeeg body is basically wholly different from the earlier releases.
From what I remember, the articulation of figures like infinitsm Great Mazinger and Grendizer was not necessarily the most smooth feeling, but Jeeg on the other hand almost feels like an Sh Figuarts in the amount of and fluidity of the articulation. Similarily, the fact that this kit is completely stickerless feels like a new level in HG model kits, although stickers have hardly ever been a problem for me as typically I use paint anyway.
If I had to make a suggestion, I wish the accesory count was a little bit higher, maybe including the Jeeg bazooka or even Panzeroid, but for what there is, I'm really happy with it. I really do hope in the future Bandai can continue expanding to some of the other "non standard" Go Nagai and Ken Ishikawa robots, like getter liger and Poseidon, as the infinitsm line only seems to be getting better and better with every new release.
Overall, I think I would give this kit a 9/10, the only thing keeping it from being perfect is just a personal thing about the accesory count, and maybe the price, but it's to be expected with the infinitsm line. But if neither of those matter to you, it's a kit that I would absolutely recommend to anyone.
I may make a more "complete" review once I actually finish the kit, but for now, I think this review is comprehensive enough.
(Also to the Gundam planet owners, I'm sorry if it seems that this review has been posted multiple times, I was getting errors on the site and didn't see it on the page and wanted to make sure it went through.
Finishing: Top Coat/Super Clear
