Linebarrels Of Iron: Vardant Medium-Range Support And Long-Range Cannon Fine Scale Model Kit
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Along with the new version of the heroic Linebarrels comes an update on one of the other amazing “Real Battle Action Robot” 1/144th scale model kits from LINEBARRELS OF IRON (Kurogane no Linebarrels), the VARDANT MEDIUM-RANGE SUPPORT AND LONG-RANGE CANNON! Assembly is straightforward with snap-fit parts and easy-to-follow pictorial instructions, and with its approximately 300 parts cast in multiple colors, there’s no need for painting.
While the standard Vardant mecha is a short-range melee combatant, this new version trades in its “binders” full of bladed weapons for dual medium-range cannons and a hand-held rifle with bayonet. It is far from defenseless in close combat, however, carrying six swords mounted in forearm sheaths! The Vardant can carry both rifle and swords in its hands. The powerful mecha stands approximately 5 inches tall, and features 30 points of articulation. The new Vardant variant also includes a bonus long-range cannon for the Hind-Kind robot in the same Linebarrels of Iron line!
