BB Senshi 00 Gundam & Robot Damashii Arios

Three new Gundam 00 Season 2 merchandises just out: HG 1/144 Cherudim, BB Senshi 00 Gundam and Robot Damashii Arios.

The goggle is called 'Holoscreen', and as noted by a reader in the initial posting (sorry, I forgot who that was ^^;), it's to allow more accurate targeting for Cherudim, and yes, it comes in clear part ^^;

A much darker green as compared to Dynames it seems.

GN Sniper Rifle can't do a full transformation for the different modes. That might disappoints some people I think. ^^;

The biggest bonus is the inclusion of the clear stand for you to assemble the Shield Bits. Initially I was thinking maybe only the connectors for the shields' sockets will be in.

Considering the Blade Shield is included, and an extra part given allowing the two GN Blade IIs to be joined, one can say that the BB Senshi is better equipped than the HG 1/144 scale version ^^;

As compared to Exia, BB Senshi 00 seems to require less painting. The hardest would be to paint white on the Blade Shield and GN Blade II.

The clear green parts molded for the GN Drives look really good. Personally, I think this color should be used by the HG 1/144 and 1/100 scale versions, instead of transparent part, and LED.

1,200 and 600 Yen respectively for the two Gunplas above seems quite a bargain, given their playability ^^

On the other hand, Lifezoids has a fast review on the just released Robot Damashii Arios Gundam.

A bit of inaccuracy of painting there for the face, and very rough edges for the feet ^^;
