HG 1/144 G-Exes Jackedge Part 8 [Final]

Pirates' meeting

Another round of action poses from HG 1/144 G-Exes Jackedge after the previous posting. ^^

Off-the-ground action supposed using Action Base 2.

A simple size comparison with Gafran from the same High Grade series:

Gafran is still the notably taller one.

With Advanced Grade 1/144 Gundam AGE-1 Normal:

Gundam AGE-1 Normal is the shortest of the three. ^^

And given its pirate motif, here's a special appearance by another pirate-themed MS from the Gundam universe: ^^

Long time no see Master Grade Crossbone Gundam Full Cloth. ^^

The smaller blade in the picture belongs to MG Crossbone Gundam Full Cloth. ^^
This is exactly what I meant about the exaggerated size of G-Exes Jackedge's knife in Part 6. XD

Between the two, I like Crossbone Gundam Full Cloth more when it comes to pirate-related design elements on the MS. The large cross as its rear binders, Jolly Roger insignias on the forehead and chest, crazy weapons and many other smaller details really incorporate the theme on the Gundam very well. But since it isn't a Gundam, G-Exes Jackedge gets to have the skull design directly put on his face, and a helmet design that is really close to a pirate hat. Its dark color scheme gives it a very fearsome look too. ^^

Until Crossbone Gundam opens his mask/mouth that is. XD

By the way, something really nice that I noticed about my MG Crossbone Gundam Full Cloth when I took him out from his box for the comparison pictures above:

The shoulder joints are still alright in carrying the large armor components. ^^
