Gundam Construction Scene Part 6

Right arm building [右腕部組み立て]

Continuing with the review on Gundam Construction Scene (MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM ガンダム大地に建つ) gashapon set with its penultimate individual pack. ^^

Front view of the pack.

Preview of the mini diorama, and the components from this pack that will be used on the statue.
The designated color for this pack is blue.

Very simple design on all sides of the box.

Preview of the whole set, and the Gundam statue on the back of the box.

Box open.


Pack number on the side flap.

Front, and rear views of the plastic bag containing the figure parts.

The repeated instruction sheet.

The box is flattened, with its flaps cut off for easier storage.

All the parts removed from the plastic bag shown earlier on.

The beam saber attached right hand.

Closeups on the details.

Length of the beam saber: 6.2cm.

The right arm.

(Left) The tampo printed details on the shoulder armor can be seen very clearly.
(Right) The square, angled wrist slot is an indicator that there'll be no alternate pose for the beam saber.

All the armor parts can separated.

The one-piece frame component of the right arm.

Each of the shoulder armor and forearm parts has the letter "R" molded inside to distinguish the side it's designed for with its counterpart from the left arm.

For the pack's own display, the shoulder armor is set as a separate component from the arm.

Two decorative structure parts: a scaffold platform, and a fence section.

The display base.

With fixed details like the support base for the arm, a coil of cable, and a safety cone molded on it, this pack's display base is definitely more interesting-looking than its Pack 4's counterpart, despite being a bit smaller in size. ^^

Rear view of the base.

Besides the usual company and copyright info, a large "5" is molded on the underside.

Front view of the runner that holds the human figurines.

Rear view of the runner.

The figurines are removed from the runner.

The bottom of the figurines' bases are labelled with their pack number using a black marker. ^^

Getting all the parts ready to form the mini diorama. ^^

The two decorative structures are pegged to the left corners on top the display base.

The rest of the work is just about placing the other parts on top the base. ^^

More images of this mini diorama:

Closeups on the details:

The display base and its elaborate molded details are very helpful in giving the entire diorama set a more interesting look. ^^ The support base is meant to hold the right arm, and there even a tiny separator on the base that sets the arm and the beam saber apart. ^^ Using those details as cues to the parts' placement, everything gets a place on top the base, nothing collides with one another, and the base appears fully occupied. ^^ It's a very nice-looking mini diorama in its own rights I think, despite featuring just a single limb from the statue. ^^

Comparison with BB Senshi Gundam RX-78-2:

Will be opening the last box from this gashapon set in the future, but not so soon. ^^
