BB Senshi Sangokuden Rikuson Z Plus Part 5

A little white guy in red skirt

Assembling another pretty small (boxed) Gunpla after AG 1/144 Gundam AGE-1 Normal: BB Senshi Sangokuden Rikuson Z Plus. ^^

Just like that AG kit, the "standby" period between completing all its paint and panel line work and the final roll-out now is pretty short as compared to many other Gunplas in my collection. ^^;

A few one-piece parts for the weapons.

Three tabs on the clear blue jewel must match their corresponding slots on one side of the staff in order to fit the part into the ring.

The completed staff 寶旋霞 and shield/nose/beak.

The staff's headpiece was painted in Part 2.

The total length of the staff is 13cm - a very long weapon for an BB Senshi kit, but in the world of Sangokuden, over sized weapon with crazy design is quite the standard with most characters. ^^

Two tabs near the shaft's end allow the shield/nose/beak to be mounted, extending the entire staff with a two-pronged "claw", and adding some more weight to the entire weapon too. ^^;

A huge combo-weapon for Rikuson Z Plus. ^^

With the extended component, the staff's total length is about 17.5cm.

Parts of Rikuson Z Plus's main body.

Foil sticker is used for the eyes.

The ability of the foot's front portion to bend downward might seem all too simple, but it's actually quite uncommon among most BB Senshi Sangokuden kits. ^^

All major separable components.

Rikuson Z Plus in plain form is completed. ^^

Some simple action poses with 寶旋霞:

Due to its size, wielding his giant staff is quite challenging for Rikuson Z Plus. I imagine it would be even more difficult when the armor parts come on in the next posting. ^^;
