MG Zeta Ver. 2.0 Part 15

Photo-shy weapons

A look at the action poses possible with MG Zeta Gundam Ver. 2.0.

Not an easy task taking photos for this guy in action really. A lot of action is possible yes, but some parts of him will always go out of frame in various poses. Lift the rifle higher a bit and it will be out of frame; position the shield a little differently and it will be out of frame as well. ^^;

The model itself however, is really sturdy. Despite being top heavy, with so many parts for the body unit and with the wings mounted on the back, the knee joints can handle the weight extremely well. I would say it's just like any other MGs in terms of articulation when you forget that he has the ability to transform.

The plus point is, the wings binders and tail stabilizer are well secured in their positions no matter how much you move the model. That's would probably count as the single most awesome improvement from Ver. 1.0 in my book. XD Those who have Ver. 1.0 in their collection and remember how it was with the wing binders would agree with me XD

Another two really great improvements:

Not only can he kneel, very well some more, he can now lift and use the Hyper Mega Launcher, for real. ^^ Again, those with Ver. 1.0 will know how that should feel. From a huge accessory back then to something that he can really wield in Ver. 2.0, how can the stronger joint of the arm not considered as an improvement? ^^

Bringing in the display base in next review.
