BB Senshi Sangokuden Asurao Moukaku Gundam, Syukuyuu Gundam, Kyoshin Elephant Set Part 17

Fierce and evil

Some action poses from the just completed Syukuyuu Gundam from BB Senshi Sangokuden Asurao Moukaku Gundam, Syukuyuu Gundam and Kyoshin Elephant Set:

Due to their unique design, Rasatsuhishourin (羅刹飛翔輪) can be held in different ways but not look out of place at all. ^^

A pair of pegs and slots near the handles allow the two blades to be combined.

The combined form of Rasatsuhishourin.

As the space beneath each individual handle is now occupied by the small fang-like appendage of the blade, the weapon is best posed with Syukuyuu Gundam's right hand, as the part has a much wider opening to allow the handle to be slid into it.
Alternately, one of the blades can be fitted into the left fist first before rolling in the second half to form the combined weapon. ^^

Bishamon Mandala (毘沙門曼陀羅) mode configuration, the entire helmet must be detached first. ^^

A 180-degree turn for Syukuyuu Gundam's face to reveal the alternate expression.

On the back of the helmet, the two large hair pieces are lifted until they are in line with the V-fins.

With the helmet reattached, Syukuyuu Gundam's form change is done.

The unique design and elevated look of the fangs really give this alternate form a crazy, fearsome look. ^^

Despite wielding the same weapons as her normal form, there's a sense of evil in Syukuyuu Gundam's action poses in Bishamon Mandala (毘沙門曼陀羅) mode. ^^

Comparison with Moukaku Gundam from the same bundled set:

When viewed from the front, the size difference between the two is surprisingly not too obvious. ^^ It's probably due to the way Rasatsuhishourin are mounted on the back of Syukuyuu Gundam, plus her large rear hair pieces that give the Gundam a deceivingly large size. However, when compared from the side, the Gundam does look extra thin as compared to Moukaku Gundam, especially the skirt armor, and legs.

On the other hand, the extra large head of Syukuyuu Gundam, especially when compared to Moukaku Gundam can also be seen. ^^ The aforementioned large rear hair pieces, mode change gimmick, and a full helmet are clear "contributors" to that. ^^ On the contrary, the three elements listed above are no present on Moukaku Gundam - his only head ornaments in armored form are the large V-fins, and a red "mohawk" (XD). The unique design of both Gundams give them a very interesting contrast. ^^

With the completion of Syukuyuu Gundam, the battle between the couple, when Syukuyuu Gundam was still under Houtou Jagd Doga's evil spell as shown in Tenshouryu Koumei Nu Gundam's comic can now be realized. ^^

With Syukuyuu Gundam supported using Soul Stage Act 5 Action Support Type for Mechanics Clear Ver.

Syukuyuu Gundam's combination with Kongouyaka to form her very own Kongou Ashura Armor mode coming up next will conclude the entire review series for this bundled set. ^^
