MG MS-06J Zaku II V2 “White Ogre” Work-in-Progress 1 (initial snap-build, unpainted)

Mobile Suit: MG MS-06J Zaku II V2 “White Ogre” [MS IGLOO]

Grade: Master Grade 1/100 scale

Goal: Battle-damaged / Weathered Progress: WIP 1: initial build, nub removal, unpainted

Next Step: weapons assembly

While I have yet to watch MS IGLOO (a series of 9 CGI short films set during the One Year War), I fell in love with this kit when I saw Mr. Pink showed it’s high articulation (I believe one of the highest, if not the best of all MGs). When he put it up for sale, I went for it, and decided it’ll be my mascot. >:) I plan on giving this a battle-damaged / weathered paintjob. :3 (inspired by the box art XD)

Aside from being a simple but awesome kit, one can’t really help but be amazed at the articulation on the thing. Even if it was only snapbuilt when I received it and still had a fair amount of nubs obstructing movement, I was still able to pose it a lot! See the one-hand push up and two-hand pushup examples below!

As of the moment, I haven’t assembled the weapons yet, though I noticed something really nice about this kit: the limb joints and hands are FIRM. I had that kind of problem with the GN-X wherein the fingers felt loose, and so I couldn’t make it hold anything much (sans piercing it w/ it with the GN Claws). The Ogre however, was all fun (bet I could make it do a lot of funny poses and gestures when I get the time). I could even make it hold fansigns!

The above posts are also a shout-out to my StarcraftPH bros! :D FIGHTING! \m/ Haha. Well, time to rest.

Next step will be the weapons assembly and the pre-painting sanding + primer coating if I can manage it.
