Gaijin Gunpla

This will be the last WIP for the MG Justice Gundam. Finally!

Yes, this kit took me longer than it normally takes me to assemble a Master Grade kit but… reasons! Yes, more than one! or even two! But assembly is complete and I can show you how that happened.

Before I show the weapons I’ll show a couple things I neglected to mention in the last post such as this area.

There are a couple holes you can see there but if you’re not mounting you Justice on there you can cover them up.

Also, allow me to show you how the Beam Saber handles are stored.

I thought this gimmick was quite cool.

Okay, so with that out of the way let’s look at what I had left to assemble.

There is nothing mind-blowing here as these are the exact ones that were used with the Freedom 2.0.

The rifle.

You are meant to put the small sticker on the scope but I had a little problem with that because…

…reason. Yes, those reasons still hurt. There was a lot of blood. That was two weeks ago but I still am not comfortable taking off the bandages.

Eventually I got it done.

The shield doesn’t have stickers so that was much easier.

Well, no stickers yet.

Now for the finale.

That sweet, sweet stand.

Combine that stand with my completed Fatum-00.

It definitely changes the look of this Mobile Suit.

You can also change the orientation of the Fatum by repositioning the attachment adaptor. Pull out the Cannons.

Swing the adaptor up.

Once that is repositioned push the Cannons back down.

So one end plugs into the back of the Justice while the other goes onto the stand.

And there you go.

There is more you can do with this MS/backpack combo but I’m at a crossroads here about what I should do. Normally, I would begin the photography and preparing to write the review, which is where I would show those kind of things, but now that I no longer have access to the photo booth which I once did any reviews from here on out are going to look distinctly different from everything I’ve done up until now. For some reason that bothers me more than it should. I’m very big on consistency. On the other hand I know people both look forward to and use my reviews when evaluating kits for personal future purchases so if I were to suddenly stop it could be very inconvenient for these people. I do have good natural lighting and white window blinds in the new apartment which means I could probably get some satisfactory images for reviews. It’s just a matter of squeezing it into the schedule and not minding the change to the look of the review section of Gaijin Gunpla. What should I do?

    Get one of those tabletop photo studios like this.

    Or it doesn’t take much to DIY it.

    Glad to see the move is going smoothly. I haven’t read that far back but is GaiGun Jr. and the missus along for the move, too?

    best regards, Syd.

  2. noob_sauce says:

    Tabletop photo light box set-ups are relatively inexpensive or are pretty DIY-able. I suggest you look in that direction.

    I haven’t been able to read all about the move but is GaiGun Jr. and the missus along for the ride?

    Best regards, Syd!

    So much improvement in gimmicks compared from the old MG Infinite Justice. I really hope they’ll do 2.0 of Infinite Justice.

    Please make a comparison between this and I-Justice in the next review Syd, pls? Or at least a height comparison

    Hey Syd,
    I perfectly understand the situation with the photography. The good news is there’s tons of hacks you can use to get the same (kinda) results as using a lightbox. Here’s a couple of them.
    Hope it works out.

    Large sheet of hard white paper as base and backgrounf with two tabletop lamps blasting away at night should do the trick (perhaps). Either ways, just do what you feel is right. WIll still love the review however it is.

    Hope things are going well. Take care. 🙂

    Hey man, would love to read your reviews again, no matter the conditions or circumstances, just let me read!!

    for the rifle put the foil sticker for the scope under the clear part, not on top of it.

    Hey Syd,

    hope everything’s going well with your new adventure.
    We (well, at least I) don’t care if the looks of your reviews will change or stay consistent, just do as you feel ant it’ll be fine.

  9. BNuts says:

    Change is inevitable, and would be necessary eventually anyway, given you’re in a different place. If nothing’s changing, you’re not doing Life right. So bring on the reviews, Syd!

    Also, what happened with your fingers? I can commiserate: I’m constantly cutting mine. Mostly on shipping boxes.

    I’ll read any kit review you’re able to post, even if the pics look like they were taken with a 2005 Motorola Razr!
