To me the Marasai is like a ‘roided up Zaku II and I love me some Zaku II. The 2.0 Zakus being some of my favourite kits the MG Marasai certainly had appeal for me and that increased when I saw it at the Shizuoka Hobby Show and I realized it had 2.0 type hands and could take a Bandai LED. And now it’s here.
Box art is pretty badass and can make the orange, hefty Marasai look pretty sleek and deadly.
The box is the standard large MG box and is on the thin side and when you lay out the runners you can see why. Not a lot of runners but the parts are quite sizable.
Not much in the way of markings for this kit.
Here are instructions for the aforementioned LED.
And the manual even has a page showing how to build/attach the suit to the Bandai exclusive Ballute Pack.
That’s kind of cool! It even has extra parts with the kit to allow you to use the Ballute Pack.
Two pilot figures are included.
As well as extra, molded hands.
And two smaller runners of green.
I dreamed about the Marasai last night. Probably because I was thinking about my workload I had the next day but the Marasai appeared to me along with a moment of inspiration of what to do with it. But before I get into that I should get the test build done.
