Keropla God Keron Part 22

Tiny but mighty cutesy

Finally, after close to eight months since the work was initiated, the final phase of actually assembling the individual kits in Keropla God Keron is about to begin. ^^

As the old cliche saying goes, "the end of a journey is the beginning of another one." That couldn't be more true with God Keron, as I'm planning build the five kits separately, just like what I did for their detailing work, so it's anticipatable that the entire assembly won't be completed within a short period of time. Because of that scheduling, formation of God Keron isn't going to happen within this or next month. As much as I would love to see the final combined robot, I don't want to rush on everything either. ^^;

Since the detailing work started with him, and he's the platoon leader, the first kit to be rolled out will be Keroro and Keroro Robo Mk-II. ^^

All the paper containers that hold the parts of Keroro and Keroro Robo Mk-II.

Parts of the mini figure, control pod and display base.

Separable components of the mini figure, control pod and display base before the final assembly.

The figure's shoulders and hips are on ball joints and can be bent very easily and flexibly to form the limbs.
The small size of the body is comparable to a Malaysian 10-cent coin. ^^

With the head attached, the mini figure of Keroro is done.
With its enormous head but super puny feet, standing without any support is virtually impossible for Keroro.

A slot on its back can be used to connect the figure to the display stand.

Done for the mini figure.

The large images above seriously doesn't reflect the figure's actual size. XD

Despite its small size, the figure is actually very posable. ^^

The peg on top of the little stand can be used to mount the control pod.
The vertical peg used for the figure needs to be rotated to the back to give room to the control pod's fin.

Mounted the control pod onto the stand.

The fin is movable.

A polygonal slot on Keroro's butt (^^) is used to connect the figure to the pod.

Keroro on his control pod for Keroro Robo Mk-II. ^^

With the fin folded, the pod can actually sit on a flat surface very firmly without the stand's support.

Size comparison with Keropla Pururu Chief Medic. ^^

Size comparison with Transformers: Prime's Legion Class Cyberverse Arcee.
This is the first time Cyberverse Arcee seems taller and larger than something she's being compared to I think. XD

Moving on to Keroro Robo Mk-II's assembly next. ^^

Parts of the arms.

Separable components of the arms before the final assembly.

The painted yellow vents with red and black interior, part of the earliest work on this kit turn out very nicely. ^^

Another look at the paper stickers beneath the shoulder wings applied in mid January.

Done for the two arms.

Very wide articulation for the elbow. ^^

The elbow joint is made up of two separated polycap parts, so the forearm can enjoy an extra swivel at elbow level. ^^

Just three parts for the weapons. ^^
Two if you don't like having a red ball at the tip of the rifle. XD

Keroro Robo Mk-II's rifle.

Connected the rifle to the right arm.

One-piece part for the shield needs no assembly at all.

A slot on either forearm can be used to mount the shield.

Connected the shield to the left arm.

Will move on to the body's and legs' assembly next. ^^
