HCM-Pro Tieren Part 2

Redefined details

More images of HCM-Pro Tieren Ground Type after the introduction yesterday.

Closeups on some of the components' details:

Great mechanical details behind all the armors.
Alternate paint scheme for the carbon blade, with awesome grid pattern for the blade portion. ^^

An extra hook is included to mount the carbon blade onto other part of the figure.

The carbon blade can be positioned on the side of the left leg armor and on the shoulder shield.

An appendage part for the waist without the rear skirt armor is included.

A little bit of alternate configuration for the rear skirt armor. ^^

Unlike HCM-Pro Gundam Exia that has the same kind of mechanical detail design as the HG 1/144 scale Gunpla version, HCM-Pro Tieren has redefined details on various components of its body.

- Darker tone of green for the overall paint scheme, consistent to the 1/100 scale kit.
- Added details painted in silver that can be found on the body, front skirt armor, elbow armor and shield on the left leg.
- New details for the body, thigh and shoulder and leg shields.
- Altered paint scheme for the carbon blade - black handle and silver blade, as opposed to light blue handle and black blade for the HG 1/144 scale Gunpla version.

Overall, the look is a lot slicker than the HG kit in my opinion, which is a good thing really. ^^

One annoying flaw of the design though:

The shoulder armors with just a little tab to stick onto the upper arms keep falling off. ^^;

It's understandable that the ease to remove the shoulder armors is part of the deal for the long range artillery type conversion, but it's still pretty annoying when you're fixing some poses for Tieren (ground type) and the shoulder armors would pop off every now and then. ^^;
