MG Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 Part 14

Not-so practical box art after all

More action poses from MG Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 after the previous posting.

Box art action pose.

Mentioned in Part 1 how much I like the brilliant box art design of this kit. ^^ After successfully adjusted the action poses of most of my Master Grade kits, including that of Char's Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 to match their respective box art, I figured it shouldn't be too much of a problem for Gelgoog as well. But nope, I cannot get the beam rifle's butt to sit on the shoulder armor at all.

Here's a comparison between the two poses:

I could only adjust the rifle to be held with the stock positioned beneath the shoulder armor. Any higher the adjustment, the handle will slip from Gelgoog's hand. ^^ On a related note, it's quite difficult to get the left arm to reach over and grab the forestock of the rifle as well. ^^;

A slight disappointment there, but it doesn't affect the overall quality of the kit. ^^

The last posting of this review series coming up next will be an elaborate comparison between this version of Gelgoog and Char's version as well as the first Master Grade release. ^^
