Flawed Beauty As a fan of the 8th MS team I had to grab this kit. For the most part this is a great kit that looks awesome to pose and comes with an awesome amount of extra weapons. The trouble comes when you want to mess around with it. The torso gives me no end of trouble as the ball joint constantly comes out when i move the chest at all and is a pain to reset as its placed awkwardly. The shield also has a bit of difficulty staying together when extended and can fall apart when you attempt to move it again.
While these two important sections of the kit can be a bit annoying, the rest of the kit is stunning. By far my favorite part is the collapsible rifle, which is a joy to put together and pose with other kits.
High Grade Revival Jesus This thing is wonderful. Armed to the teeth, weapon storage up the wazoo. This thing is also great too look at. On the other hand, articulation is just okay. The head has enough articulation, the arms have a decent range but you can't get a full T-pose, but the elbows and hands are fine. The legs are also wonderful (love me some split skirt.) However, the waist sucks, in terms of articulation and the core has a lot to be desired of in terms of build. more of the skirt barely moves, the figure has no waist swivel but there is side to side which almost makes up for. BUT WHAT ALMOST RUINS THE ENTIRE FIGURE FOR ME IS THE FACT THAT THE CORE IS REFUSES TO PLUG AND STAY IN AND FALLS APART LIKE THE DEMOCRATIC THAI GOVERNMENT. I haven't seen anyone else complain about it too much on the internet, so I can assume its just my figure or its because of the way I built it or its because I'm handling it to rough (I doubt its the last reason. While we're talking about falling, the colour seperation is nice, but the bits on the chest like to fall apart a bit too much. The chest dot/anti personal gun/ whatever it is eventually stuck in fine, but the white piece that goes across the vents I had to glue down. The trigger hand also doesn't like to stay together but its whatever because I don't care much about the beam gun. Also, memes and misery I broke the V fin (because I was trying to fix the waist/core ironically. So conclusion: good figure, but posability is lacking and be careful while handling.
Great kit Love 08th and was happy to put this one together. Plastic is nice quality and the colors looks great. Comes with plenty of accessories; weapons and backpack and shield. I gave 4 stars for design for two reasons; 1) the way the chest is mounted to the waist is kinda weird and if you move it around too much the poly join comes apart and the top separates from the bottom, and you have to split the chest apart into two pieces in order to reassemble it. 2) A couple pieces fit a little loose, like the gray panel around the yellow vents on the chest. Additionally, the bar above the shield should be blue but it's gray.
I wish I could find replacement decals though, I accidentally placed the "08" too far down on the shield and it only comes with one of each number, so no second chances there.
Overall, I really liked the kit a lot. I'm tempted to pick up another one.

This will look great alongside the already spectacular HGUC Ez-8 kit. I only wish the photographer had remembered to clip BOTH safety-flags off the V-fin! Haha XD
revival of a classic gundam from a classy series 8th MS team is def my childhood favorite. the quality and value you get with this model is great, tons of weaponry, nice fine small parts with little stickers to deal with. but the stomach joint is like unconnected plates which jostles around and kinda makes it bothersome to pose.
Finishing: Top Coat/Super Clear
You don’t need cement.
