HGUC RX-79BD-1 Blue Destiny Unit 1 I like the whole blue palette-scheme, definitely getting put on my build order...

Here's an excellent HGUC kit of the RX-79BD-1 Blue Destiny Unit 1 mobile suit as it appeared in the Sega Saturn "Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story The Blue Destiny" game. Once completed, its joints are nicely articulated, and it comes with a beam saber, 100mm machine gun, and shield. Foil stickers and decals are included for custom markings.

    Oops! Apparently GP registered my review in three times and it tanked the rating. I don't really think it deserves that so here's my attempt to equalize it. Don't mind this, GP is just broken!

    This kit made me sad. "This is the most disappointing thing since my son's cord appointed lawyer, Larry Gruber." -Mr. Plinkett

    I'm a big fan of the Blue Destiny spinoffs. I've played the trilogy on the Saturn and read the manga and along with the story itself, one of my favorite parts about it was the designs of the mobile suits. So to see the three RX-79BD units get some love in faithful High Grade renditions I was really excited to get to build this! Sadly I think I was in the wrong to expect Bandai to do anything but disappoint me.

    For the most part, building this felt like a chore. The pieces don't like each other very much and don't like to snap together, it's more like you have to squash them into one another and hope it works. And by God, you better hope it works because this kit leaves very little room for common mistakes.

    I don't remember there being a single ball joint being present here outside of the hands (which are very awkward to put in and take out, mind you), which leaves the model being very stiff. Probably one of the least articulate builds I've done. You can't move its waist, head, chest, shoulders or near anything else but its feet (which are very well designed, I must admit) much at all which leaves it being very dull looking when trying to pose it. It basically turns out looking like the beast from the Barnes and Noble display case.

    Oh, but maybe I'm being unfair when I say it's stiff, I should probably give it credit for having its entire left side being completely loose like it had a robot stroke! Its arm, leg, shoulder, everything. And that's the side you're supposed to hold the shield on! Für die lieben Gotte!

    Stickers are bad, we all know they're bad, but I believe I must repeat myself this time. The decals are fine, I think, but the foil stickers are some of the absolute worst I've seen in a while. No really, it's hilariously bad. The sheet is near the size of a Pokemon card and you'd be better off not using 80% of it. The kit looks eons better when you don't use some of these. There are stickers that you just have to lazily slap over the vents and it makes it look more like a cheap plastic model than it already does... since it's a cheap plastic model n' all. It's funny because even the DISPLAY PICTURES don't use them! I think the worst offender out of all absolutely has to be what they did with the rifle's handle (not the one that sticks out, the other one). Instead of just making a white piece to stick onto the rifle, they use a LIGHT BLUE piece (the very same color of most of the model) and just put a crappy white wrap-a-round sticker to put on it! It looks even worse than how you imagine it!

    That being said, I don't want to end this review so negatively. Outside from being too stiff or too loose and being the worst to build, the legs are pretty great. They're chunky, have weight to them so the model balances well, and the gimmick wherein the beam swords are stored in the calves is really neat. The feet are very articulate and compared to the rest of the kit built really nicely, everything snapped together easily. I still think the kit looks really nice when just seeing it visually (after getting rid of the repulsive stickers and adding some details yourself), and I'm glad to have a Blue Destiny unit sitting around for the heck of it, but it really does pain me to say this is P-Bandai levels of cheap and gaudy at its core.

    tl;dr only get this if you REALLLYYYYYY like the blue destiny spinoffs
