About a year ago I mentioned how I wasn’t a fan of the bulky looking Kshatriya (for some reason this name reminds me of the sound one makes when sneezing). After watching it in action I changed my tune. This thing is awesome! However, the HG kit, while huge, still has some issues and, to be perfectly honest, that head just seems far too small for that massive body.
Well, as part of Bandai’s SD line the BB NZ-666 Kshatriya has proportions I find much more appealing. And it’s cute so I picked it up.
Like the suit in the anime (and as downloadable content for the Gundam Musou 3 ps3 game) this kit is far larger than suits the same scale. Just check out these runners.
The third runner is for the few frame pieces and also a whole BB Loto. Sweet!
You also get plenty of poly-caps and stickers.
First off you assemble the head.
Then the top fin which, for some reason, comes as two pieces.
The torso pieces are large in comparison to other SDs and the polycaps are reminiscent of HG kits.
Here are the three pieces that make up the torso.
Now you have to apply stickers to these tiny yellow pieces. Due to the small size of the parts involved this is actually a little more difficult than I anticipated.
Another part which needs a sticker, the emblem on the chest.
The upper arms are comprised of one plastic part onto which you secure a poly-cap ball and another poly-cap which keeps the lower arm together.
Here are the parts that comprise one arm.
And the legs are just two parts with the ball poly-cap at each end.
With some stickers applied.
The feet are two parts as well.
Reminds me of the Sinanju feet.
Finishing the main part of the suit is the skirt.
Now for those fun binders! First take the four joints and add round poly-caps to each end.
Then these small pieces also take a round poly-cap. I think there are 12 of them in total.
Now the binders themselves with their stickers attached.
They look like a flock of strange birds crowding around and staring at you.
Just attach the previous pieces via the round poly-cap.
By switching the position of the poly-cap you can attach the little arm in a different position.
And he’s done.
Tiny and cute, yet menacing. I still feel the larger head fits the proportion of the suit better.
It comes with its trusty beam sabers (which definitely require some paint, in my opinion).
But we’re not done. There’s still a Loto to assemble.
He has his own eye sticker.
