Here’s something unexpected. A gatling gun kit from Kotobukiya.
Looks like Hoihoi-san is more busier than normal.
Yes, six glorious barrels AT YOUR FACE.
Nothing much to see.
This MSG weapons’ unit is meant for the Kotobukiya Frame Arms or the 1/100 scale series of kits.
As with many MSG kits that Kotobukiya made, detailing is very sharp.
Handle grips are at easy to access places.
The ammo box can be interchange either left or right, depending on preference.
Its a box with a swinging handle, really.
With Kotobukiya’s MSG line of kits, flexibility is THE order of business.
The RG line of kits are 1/144 in size. As you can see, the gun is quite big.
For a small-size 1/144, the gun is a hassle to wield properly.
Even with a stand, the weigh really make the arms of Strike sag.
Gatling guns make awesome things more awesome.
Looks like Mwu’s moment of awesome has worn off.
*off-camera* Mwu: I don’t believed this… Defeated by a… moe-bot.
Looks like a Kotobukiya can handle another Kotobukiya kit without issues.
Yes, this gun has a special feature: it has a wind-up engine.
So the cylindrical knob at the back is really a wind-up knob.
The engine connects to the barrels. The wind-up engine is a big surprise to me as I never expect that an add-on could have this unique feature.
TC-337 only manages to make the others jealous of him.
With this, I can say it’s a good add-on to have, be it for a large-sized 1/144 kits (like the Jesta and Jegan), a 1/100 or a Kotobukiya mecha kit. It’s construction is very modular giving flexibility on how to use it and it only took me 10 minutes or less in putting this together. Play value is further extended by the fact that barrels can actually SPINS.
By the way, after finishing this review, Hoihoi-san snatches back the gun.
