BB Senshi Sangokuden Sonsaku Physalis Gundam Part 9

Sonsaku Smash!

All action poses from BB Senshi Sangokuden Sonsaku Physalis Gundam after its completion in the previous posting. ^^

Supported using Soul Stage Act 4 for Humanoid Clear.

For the shoulder armors to form Soko Senkon (双虎旋棍), the longer pair of straight pegs inside the armors are used.

There's enough room inside the armor for each hand to grab onto the handle securely.

While Soko Senkon are supposedly tonfa-like weapons, their large size makes them look like boxing gloves instead. XD

Components detached from the kit to realize Sonsaku Physalis Gundam's Assault Form (強襲形態) with Kyoshu Gekikokon (強襲激鋼棍).

Simple assembly to form the giant hammer, Kyoshu Gekikokon.

The hammer is 10cm long.

The pair of clear blue spikes removed from the backpack are reattached to the shoulder armors' tabs previously used to mount the hammer parts.

The pegs inside the shoulder armors are hinged inward for as far as they go to give them the maximum raised position when they are reattached to the shoulders.

The pegs can be adjusted even without being removed from the shoulders, according to the instruction manual, but in order to reduce the stress on the pegs when they are being bent, I prefer having the armors detached to gain direct access to the joints.

The upper pair of tabs are used when the V-fins are reattached to the helmet.

The slightly lowered position of the V-fins helps to partially conceal Sonsaku Physalis Gundam's eyes.

Given the wide space between the V-fins and the head area, Sonsaku Physalis Gundam's eyes can still be seen very easily when viewed from a lower angle.

Since the kit lacks elbow joints, it's unfortunately not possible for Kyoshu Gekikokon to be lowered any further than this for the weapon to be positioned close enough to the right shoulder to resemble Gundam GP02A deploying its Atomic Bazooka. ^^

Sonsaku Physalis Gundam's finishing move is actually called Gekikojuubakutotsu (激鋼重爆突). ^^

More action poses from this BB Senshi Sangokuden kit in the next posting. ^^
