Review: Gundam Converge G Parts (Hrududu)

Let's finish out Gundam Converge week with the six item in the set and a rare Saturday post.  Apparently this kit is a fighter and also parts expansion set for the Gundam Hazel.  Which makes it fairly interesting.  This kit is part of a sealed set of Vol.19 of Gundam Converge I picked up at H Mart.  I paid $64.99 for the entire set.

Box.  MSRP was $6.49 at H Mart.


Parts.  That little thing at the
bottom is a piece of candy.








Disassembled.  The little antenna on the tips of the wings can be removed too and, they could be Spotting.  the wings could be either Movement or Defense.  The nosecone could be either Melee, Direct Fire, Defense, or Spotting.


Assembled.






Size Comparison.



This is the combination of the
G Parts and the Hazel Custom.
The Questions:
Is it below, at, or above $10 per Frame?  Below.  (+5)

Is it a good size to use in a game?  Yes.  In between a Chub and a Classic.  (+5)
How many parts does it have to represent systems?  Four.  (+5)
Does it have enough parts you can remove to represent White Dice damage?  No.  (-5)
Score: +10 (A-).  This might actually make a good ship for a game of Intercept Orbit.

Review: Gundam Converge TR-1 (Hazel Custom) Blue

This is day 5 of Gundam Converge week.  This is a re-color of the kit I reviewed yesterday.  This kit is part of a sealed set of Vol.19 of Gundam Converge I picked up at H Mart.  I paid $64.99 for the entire set.

Box.  MSRP was $6.49 at H Mart.


Parts.  That little thing at the
bottom is a piece of candy.







Disassembled.  Something I discovered with this one is the feet come off.  The gun can be Direct Fire or Spotting.  The shield can be Defense.  Backpack one can be Movement.  Backpack two can be Defense or Spotting.  The head can be Defense or Spotting.  The arms can be removed for White die damage.

Assembled.  Like the other version,
it has trouble standing up.






Size Comparison.

The Questions:
Is it below, at, or above $10 per Frame?  Below.  (+5)

How many parts does it have to represent systems?  Four.  (+5)
Does it have enough parts you can remove to represent White Dice damage?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Same verdict as the White one.
