QUALI[T] This is a very fun build, and the internal frame is sturdy enough to support the weight of the comically large buster sword/rifle, though you'll most likely want to put this kit on a base to achieve the flying poses that it deserves. The shield, which contains a hidden mini GN drive, can rotate back on an articulated arm to serve as a booster/thruster. As an added bonus, all of the green shield bits can be used individually as GN knives/shortswords. It's ironic that there are so many offensive options, considering that a) this kit does not come with any other weapons, and b) the QAN[T] doesn't exactly see a ton of combat in the movie.
My complaints are fairly minor. The text on the green foil stickers rubs off extremely easily. The head barely articulates due to the yellow "collar" piece, so if you intend to have QAN[T] turn his head, you'll want to remove that piece. Finally, the hand guards on the sword are more trouble than they're worth; they look cool, but the connection between the top piece and the suit's right arm doesn't serve any practical purpose.
First build ever. Very pleased. I definitely rushed the process, but still loved the end result. Other than LEGO, I have never done any model building before. I found the instructions easy to follow and the build went together fairly easily. It's sturdy enough to stand without a base. I find the connection between the shield and backpack-arm to be very loose, but otherwise it holds together well.
Spring for the waterslides! I just finished this kit today. After 9 HGs, 2 Haro, and being the third RG, I finally lost a part. It's a large part of the GN Sword and I have no idea how I lost it. So I can't comment on the main weapon. I'll add that I bought the sparkle green action base 2 and the waterslide set. Get those waterslides for this kit, it'll look amazing! The inner frame gets built first. There's an iffy gimmick with the GN drive that I don't care for. Be sure to cover the clear green parts with painter's tape before topcoating! The color separation is amazing and pops with matte topcoat. As another reviewer said there's some balance issues with the shield, however I display mine with the action base so it's not a big deal to me.
Fun kit, wonky balance I want to start by saying I absolutely loved this kit both visually and from a practical putting it together side. This kit took full advantage of the concept of an inner frame by having you construct the full frame before adding the armor and parts, which made for a fun build. I love clear affects parts and this uses plenty of those without going too far and feeling ostentatious (I'm looking at you Unicorn Gundam). The pose-ability and flexibility of the kit are superb and I truly loved putting this together and having it in my collection. Highly recommend this to everyone.
That said, I have a few minor design complaints. First, this kit does suffer from a combo of small feet and large weapons (or shield, in this case). This does make it unstable in many poses without a stand. Second, the main sword is near impossible to actually connect with the forearm without popping the hand out of place. I'm not particularly attached to that look so it's not a problem, but from a design stance it just doesn't line up well. The third issue is that, while I absolutely love the way the head looks, the v-fin is a bit unstable and pops off too-easily when posing the head. to make this more frustrating, when the fin pops off so does the tiny (and I mean TINY) clear green piece pops out too, and may be hard to find again on your floor.
These issues come no-where close to ruining the kit for me. I do absolutely love it and highly recommend it, but these are things to be aware of as you decide to purchase this kit.
