BB Senshi Sangokuden Kibutei Sousou Gundam, Joko Serpent, Sohi Gundam Set Part 11

You, you, you, and you

Completing the review of another box set item after Lego Creator No. 5765 Transport Truck, a Gunpla this time: BB Senshi Sangokuden Kibutei Sousou Gundam, Joko Serpent and Sohi Gundam Set. ^^

With the completion of Joko Serpent and Sohi Gundam in April and last month respectively, only the emperor of Giga, Sousou Gundam himself remains. ^^ Before showing the emperor form's configuration with "borrowed" parts from Joko Serpent and Sohi Gundam, the "standard" form of Sousou Gundam will be assembled first. ^^

Boxes of parts for Sousou Gundam.

Parts of Sousou Gundam's main body.

Foil stickers are used for the Gundam's eyes as well.

The silver segment on the front skirt armor is from foil sticker.
It could have been painted very easily back in Part 4 when the two areas around it received their silver paint, but I always thought using foil sticker for it would make it stand out a lot more. ^^

All major separable components.

Crazy paint work for the body unit that was done in Part 4.

Sousou Gundam in plain form is completed. ^^

The body unit painted in glossy red (Mr. Color No. 158 Super Italian Red Gloss) is a complete match for the other glossy parts. ^^

While the overall design is pretty close to Sohi Gundam, the red color scheme definitely gives Sousou Gundam a more fearsome image. ^^

Sousou Gundam's only handheld weapon, Enkotsujin (炎骨刃) which is just a one-piece part.

With just that one finger-pointing left hand unit, it's hard to adjust any "non-commanding" action pose for Sousou Gundam.

Even though it's just a one-piece part, Enkotsujin (炎骨刃) really is a huge and fierce-looking sword, worthy to be wielded by Sousou Gundam whose might and power is on par if not greater than that of Ryofu Tallgeese (呂布トールギス). As shown in his own Gunpla comic, the finishing move for Sousou Gundam, called Dai-Guren Zan (大紅蓮斬) is a mighty slash using Enkotsujin that is powerful enough to take out an entire army of soldier units - very reminiscent of Sousou Gundam's actor, Gundam Double X's Twin Satellite Cannon. ^^

The completion of Sousou Gundam in armored form will be featured in the next posting. ^^
