1/144 Daizengar & DX Chogokin 1/60 VF-25S

Some updates from Kotobukiya on the recently released SRW OG 1/144 Daizengar.

We don't get to see many sites reviewing this kit at the moment, so this update from the company helps to reveal some of its features.

Three types of face expressions included. The clear yellow parts for the eyes look pretty good.

Sliding armor action for the upper arm ^^

Unlike the PG line from Bandai, you have to assemble the hand finger by finger.
That's good news for those who love assembling tiny parts.

The gray part beneath the knee joint has spring inside, so they can flip automatically when the knee is bent.

The armors on the back can be opened to reveal the thrusters beneath them.
Some painting for the thrusters is required it seems, if you're following the color guide.

Those three thrusters under the rear skirt armor are stuff you don't get in the non-scale version.

Metal plate beneath the feet.

'Claws' beneath the feet to help the model to stand well (?)

On the other hand, a review on the just released DX Chogokin 1/60 VF-25S Ozma Lee's Unit by Gamu-toys.

I'm more used to Ozma Lee's unit in Armored Pack ^^;
