See the top right for the assembly video.
Hello. This is Nald PD.
The product to be introduced this time is Figure-rise Standard Machinedramon.
It is similar in volume to the MG large kit.
Released for 6,000 yen in March 2021,
The size and volume are as high as the pricey price.
The metallic emission color is more advanced than the video,
There are many panel line points, so even the ink lines show great detail.
Weld line that can’t be helped….
Unfortunately, there are countless weld lines here and there.
Along with that, the dark gate marks are exposed as they are.
Why didn’t we apply undergate?
Metallic injection is divided into two tones due to the difference in gloss.
There are places where you can see mold marks,
Most of them are molded.
Use of seals in small quantities.
Most of them are used inside clear parts for reflection effect.
Sticker for black color coding.
With a striking singularity…
Most of them are using click joints.
It helps with joint strength,
This is a concern in the future due to the use of polycaps.
Apply cler parts to small eyes.
It contains detail
Back and forth operation.
Use a thick lead wire for the joint.
The elasticity is so strong that the desired operation is difficult.
It is connected with soft parts.
The movable width is wide, but it is not fixed properly.
There are no left and right movable joints,
By rotating the neck joint, you can hold it in the desired direction to some extent.
Chest open gimmick.
Inside mechanic details are included.
There is a slight interference, but…
When using a joint inside the pelvis, it can be rotated without interference.
Several shaft joints enter the top.
It is a joint that is used when stretching and contracting, and it helps to move higher.
In case of close contact, the joint is fixed….
It shows a high utilization rate when it is newly built.
With him, using the axial joint hidden inside the pelvis…
You can create the posture you want.
The internal joints are exposed intact.
The arm also uses a click joint.
Using a stretch gimmick…
The shoulder width is also excellent.
Using multiple joints,
Up and down movement as well as front and rear operation is possible.
But there is a problem.
When the arm moves, it puts stress on the elastic joints.
The joints that are forced to bend appear to be visibly weak.
Be especially careful when moving your arms.
Comparison of expansion and contraction movable width
It is a basic fixed type, and can be operated individually after separation.
There is a play in the lower joint.
It is a joint that is connected to the polycap, and there is a left and right shake.
Full folding is possible even for large volumes.
Skeleton sculpture located on the knee.
Ankle guard parts.
Excellent mobility from hip joint to knee and ankle.
Basic toes are also integrated. Individual operation is also possible.
Personally, I recommend using the all-in-one for grip.
The tail also uses a lead wire like the neck joint.
Natural movement is good, but it is not easy to move due to its high elasticity.
Unfortunate HG stand joint that does not fit the weight.
A huge ball joint that can be stretched is used.
When it is newly built, a wider range of operation is possible.
Another detail hidden in the backpack…
Details on the back of the upper body.
The mechanic details are very good.
In addition to the backpack joint, the joint in question.
There are some unused joints.
Whether it’s a simple detail or a variation… I don’t know.
Use it all neatly without junk.
Use of common poly cap.
So far, we have briefly looked at Machine Dramon (Power dramon).
I wasn’t interested in the Digimon series,
The massive volume and refined mechanic details are great.
Simple assembly method, better mobility than expected.
It was a product with high satisfaction.
Will Metal Greymon be released in the future?
Please leave your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks for watching.
