Youll find them on the backpack as well. While i am showing the backpack i will mention that you can pull back on the thruster housing and extend them slightly. I did find, however, that on one of them even if I pull back with great care it will come off completely. In some ways the rg sinanju could be considered a step up from the. But This kit is not without issues. There are certain areas where problems occur.

On the rg kit youll find gimmicks not found on any other Sinanju kit. Ive shown some boyfriend above but Ill list more here. Those giant thruster housings on the outside of the legs can not only rotate, like on the mg, but they open to reveal silver frame underneath. This is where the brass foils come into play. The side skirts also elongate revealing silver frame and brass foils. On the back of skirt, just underneath the black part is a little frame piece that looks like a vent. There is silver frame, with the accompanying brass foils, underneath the shoulder which can be exposed. You know what this reminds me of? The mg sazabi ver. That gimmick repeats itself all over the kit.
1) Bandai are really lazy and/or cheap and didnt want to engineer a new frame for the gps sinanju. Or 2) Bandai are geniuses for coming up with a design that gives us a sinanju using a standard rg frame. I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle so while we are discussing the frame Ill put up some images. The frame is quite poseable with the armour off. Personally, i lean towards number. If Bandai used the mk-ii frame and the sinanju featured almost no detail or gimmicks of any kind because of the limitations from using a frame for another ms then this kit would be a disappointment. Instead this kit is worthy of the rg tag and in some ways is better than its mg big brother.
Fortunately, you can rotate the arms 360 degrees at the connection at the top of the upper arm and bend the elbow completely so you can work around the shoulders to get the poses you want. I took eight pictures of this pose from this angle. I want to use them all if possible. Build Design: 9/10 Let the debate begin! It is no secret that this kit uses the rg frame that we first saw in the rg mk-ii titans. This wasnt shown real until its release so it was a surprise. It seems like you could look at the design of the rg sinanju, and its use of the mk-ii frame, in one of two ways.
When I rebuilt it and went back later I put it on the stand right away and could show off the nice range of movement in the legs but neglected to get pictures of it standing. Youve got nice articulation in the feet so the toes can point down to give it a nice flying look. The neck has nice movement up and down to add to that flying effect. Should you need it the front lower leg armour will move out as you can bend the ankle forward more. You dont get much movement in the shoulders as all, however. This is due to the frame bandai had to design for the arms. They seem set into one position and if you try to move the shoulders down the frame piece on the shoulder will bump into the side of the torso and you may find your shoulder comes off.

There are tabs here as well to hold them down. Attach the effect parts here and you are good. Youre also given two beam saber handles. I have to be honest here. I dont normally try to pose a kit with beam Sabers if it has a massive rifle and shield but I really wanted to replicate one of the images in the instruction manual. Sinanju is so badass. On the mg kit the beam Saber handles can fit inside the armour assembly on the back of the forearm.
The rg lacks the ability to do that so instead Bandai incorporated entry a small red piece to look like the end of the handle. You can plug the blade in there. For me, the rifle is gorgeous as well, but maybe some of that is nostalgia as I put a lot of time an effort into my, ver. Part of the scope can move, like the mg kits rifle. And the under-mounted grenade launcher can come off drugs and be put on the underside of the shield if you prefer. Articulation: 8/10 This picture above doesnt highlight enough what the kit can do standing but that is because i was having problems posing the first kit when I was taking pictures for the review. That was due to issues I had with the design (more details on that later) that may have been builder error.
The hg version of the kit didnt see a bazooka until it was bunched in with the sinanju that came with the. What you do get is pretty impressive starting with the shield. The shield of the sinanju is very intimidating and all versions look great but the rg has that beautiful gold trim. The shield can attach to the sinanjus lower arm by sliding down over top of the large armour part on the back of the arm. Like with the mg kit you also have the option of mounting it underneath the shoulder.
On the rg this is accomplished by inserting the part that came off the b frame runner into a hole found in the silver assembling underneath the shoulder. Its actually quite secure here though I dont know if I prefer this look. You get two beam axe handles as well. These can connect together and be used Darth maul-style. Or they can be kept separate. You can also reposition the head on the handle by putting the handle into one of three slots. But I think most people will be using these attached to the shield. These secure in place by dropping onto a little tab. They can be repositioned to the bottom by spreading the heads out and flipping them over.

Here you open up one section of the armour. Again, the hg and mg kits dont do this. Another aspect about the colors on this kit that I like is found on the end of the fuel tanks. Here the grey is done by parts inside the fuel tanks. The hg and mg kits fuel tanks were just solid white. Weapons: 10/10, no, there is no bazooka lined but one should keep in entry mind that the original hg and mg kits didnt have it either. The mg bazooka was released together with a comic back in 2009 before being included in the. Ova version of the.
Just that plated gold is enough to put this kit ahead of other versions but thats not the only difference bandai made. They also released this kit in a glossy finish, a rarity when it comes to standard release kits. The light bounces off of all those curves and is quite eye-catching. Being an rg there are writeline some foil stickers on to be found placed throughout the. The brass foils appear mostly on the silver parts that are mostly hidden under the armour to be revealed at your leisure. Ill write about these during the build Design section because thats where discuss gimmicks and the like but Ill show some of the silver ones here. Youve got on under the flap on the back of the skirt. The middle red piece can move to reveal it, something the mg and hg kits cant. Another is found on the shoulders.
of the legs. There is a lot more i could write about the looks of this kit but those need to be addressed in the other sections of the review so Ill just end with a couple of cool shots showing how great it looks. Dear Lord, that backpack! Colors: 10/10, maybe the biggest reason this kit looks so good is because of the mekki parts used for the gold areas instead of foil stickers which were everywhere on both the hg and mg kits. If you handled those gold foils correctly you could have a decent looking kit and until this rg released that was the only choice you had for your own Sinanju. This real Grade release changes not only how we feel about the sinanju but also how we feel about the older hg and mg kits. How many comments have we seen in the last week and a half saying something like, mg sinanju.0? Yes, in some ways, this real Grade now overshadows one of the best Master Grade kits out there and the biggest reason in the gold.
Now I feel i know the kit very well and can write about. Some of the pictures youll see in this review come from the batch i uploaded first while most others were taken after I rebuilt. Because of that you may see some inconsistency in the images but its the text and explanations that are most important here. Lets review the latest real Grade model from Bandai, the. Overall look: 10/10, its the sinanju. Possibly the most impressive, if not gorgeous, looking Mobile suit there is and Bandai has captured it perfectly in 1/144 scale for their real Grade release. Many have claimed it to be the best mono-eye suit out there but I would say it is up there among writings the best of all of them.

As I wrote in this post after completing the rg sinanju i wasnt ready to write the review. That isnt exactly true. I was ready to review it in that summary I had everything prepared. All the pictures were uploaded and accessible. The issue was that I felt I didnt really experience the kit as it should. I didnt want to write a review based on a false impression and do a disservice to both the kit and to the readers who come here looking for information. So i built a second kit. And I tore down the first one and rebuilt.
