Figma Drossel Part 5

The princess's intensive exercise

Figma Drossel and some of her hidden add-ons in this posting. ^^

Starting with the exercise-type headgear seen in Episode 11.

Simple clip-on mechanism to attach the headgear to the cheek.

Supposedly ribbons (?) on the headgear as seen in the anime, the clear blue stripes on the figure don't move at all actually.

The multi-purpose grip-type hand units that can be used to hold items with handle for some random crazy moves. ^^

HGUC Gundam RX-78-2's shield and beam saber for example XD

Comparison with HGUC Gundam RX-78-2 since we borrowed his weapons for a while there XD

Borrowing the axes from BB Senshi Sangokuden Shusou Doven Wolf this time. ^^;

Intensive and somewhat dangerous exercises the princess is having. XD

Attaching the flight type unit to the back of the head.

As seen in Episode 3.

As fashionable it is to the princess, I've no idea how to pose her with this headgear mounted. ^^;

Part-swapping to get the wings and thrusters.

It was never revealed in the anime if Drossel managed to master the control of the flight unit ^^;

And as noted by the character herself in the anime, the flight type headgear is quite a strain to the joint (shoulder joint in the anime, neck joint for the action figure). This item is relatively heavy as compared to the exercise-type, and the weight is skewed to the back of the head as well. It's quite a sight to look at, all the flowery pattern printed on the back of the item, and some of the flying poses with the display base are pretty awesome as well, but it's definitely not good for the durability of the neck joint to have that over extensive period of time and action.

Special guest appearance of another character in the next posting. ^^
