HCM-Pro Tieren Part 5 [Final]

Gundam Exia again

The last part of my review on HCM-Pro Tieren, featuring Gundam Exia from the same product series who appeared in the last posting of my review on its 1/100 scale Gunpla equivalence just 2 days ago.














Unbelievable but true, Tieren has better articulation than Gundam Exia, even though it could never get a scratch on the Gundam in the anime. ^^; The number of movable components and the wide range of articulation it's designed with is excessive, but awesomely so. The really flexible hip joint as seen in Part 3 is already a big winner against Gundam Exia's design of that same joint.

The addition of the long range artillery type is a big bonus for me, even though it's one of the main selling points of this HCM-Pro set. As mentioned before, I'm not a big fan of that Tieren variation so I'm not too enthusiastic about having that in this HCM-Pro set. The conversion gimmick is quite fun though, it's almost like having a mini G.F.F. set from the old days, where you can swap the armors and weapons on and off a particular MS to customize your own type. ^^ As the head and chest part is separated from the cannon as shown in Part 4, I'm sure one can configure it into a ground type/artillery type hybrid of his preference. ^^

A very nice HCM-Pro set to have this is. ^^

All reviews on HCM-Pro Tieren:
Part 1: This is no Zaku, boy! No Zaku!
Part 2: Redefined details
Part 3: The real Tieren can never be this agile XD
Part 4: Suddenly, (almost) symmetrical outline

Why? Why portray the Tieren in such a miserable state? T~T
