I had an impulse to continue the Sword Impulse. Onto the arms. For the most part the arms on the Sword Impulse are the standard fare for an MG kit however there are a couple things I noticed which really makes me appreciate this kit all the more.

The frame is pretty representative of the Master Grade series so if you’ve done an MG before you’ll know exactly what you are seeing here.

This goes in here…

Then add these pieces…

…and it should look like this…

But when it comes to putting on the armor, I was pleasantly surprised. The armor for the arm is molded as one piece. That’s right! No seam lines!

The hands are the same as most of the new Master Grade kits having the last three digits on the hand molded as one piece while the thumb and forefinger move independently.

A great design by Bandai means a good range of motion.

I’ll put them on the kit and then I’m done for the night.

Actually, I’m not satisfied. I have time so let’s continue.

Onto the shoulders!

There are only seven pieces used to construct the shoulder so it didn’t take too long at all.

And again, no seam lines!

Now he’s looking more like his Sword Impulse self. Oh ya!

    I’m a big fan of the slide-over arm and thigh armour. I really like the seamless heads with easy to remove faces that more and more kits have these days as well. Now if Bandai would just start incorporating these two things along with undergate technology into more new MG releases I would be a happy gunpuraru.
