1/72 Transformable Armored VF-25S Get

Another MG Sazabi

In terms of the price that is - 8,000 Yen ^^;

Somehow I'm grateful that there aren't too many too bombastic releases from Bandai at the moment. In a way it's helping me to save quite a bit of money. XD Even though the greater responsibility is on me to not spend on Gunplas which are too pricey, but some of them can be really hard to resist, like this 1/72 Transformable VF-25S Armored Messiah Valkyrie Ozma Lee's Unit.

This is my second VF-25S. The first one is Super VF-25S.

A very thick 44-page construction manual. ^^

Currently having HGUC Kshatriya, HG 1/144 O Gundam, BB Senshi Sangokuden Taishiji Dom, 1/72 Transformable VF-25G Michael's Unit with Klan Klein decal and Best Mecha Collection Mazinger Z with God Scrander. Others like MG Guntank, 1/100 SEED VS Astray series, and the future MG Blue Frame Second Revise are not of my interest, so my money is safe from those items.

With that said, it's good in a way for me, seeing how Bandai's pushing all those 1/100 SEED VS Astray kits right now, because I don't have to worry about being tempted to spend on them at all XD

Btw which O Gundam are you getting? The grey colour one or the so-called ACD type?

looking forward to your post on this Armored Messiah. the conclusion i draw is that this VF is too heacy to support itself. this thought have been putting me off to get one...

Chris said... you finally decided on buying the Armored Messiah. Priced between RM350-400, this is a bit too much for me...^^

Looking forward to you building this one, though that may take place in the far future. I predict this may be the longest review of any kit you have.

The latest announced version that will come with a pair of beam wings. ^^


Actually there are plenty of part swapping for this Armored VF-25S. ^^; I would say for the Super version, it's 80% transformation & 20% part-swapping; for this Armored version, it's 50% transformation & 50% part-swapping ^^; The Gerwalk and Battroid modes have their own special parts to use for sustaining their transformed position. Building the kit would be OK, switching between modes and to get action poses for each of them is going to be very troublesome ^^;

i'll tell you one thing. the weight of the armour part for the wings does damages to the connector of the wing. i had already broke mine, have to scratchbuild it at workshop.

in other word make sure that you put the messiah on the stand first on all modes, then putting the armour pack for the wing part. the stands connector helps distribute the weight into the base rather unto the connector parts.
