With all the hype and excitement about the soon to be released Bandai GX-46 Soul of Chogokin Dygenguar & Aussenseiter, I thought it would be a great time to review Kotobukiya'a Dygenguar full action model kit.
Dygenguar is one of the coolest mecha designs from the wildly popular Super Robot Wars tactical role-playing game series.
Starting off with the beautifully illustrated box. The box cover really gives you a feel of the characters coolness. As you can see in the photo below, he is sporting his famous pose. Man, is that sword huge or what?
Without boring you with all the details of the build, I will just say that it is fun and at sometimes a little challenging. The kit is molded in color so you really don't have to paint it. Of course, you can paint and detail the finished figure if you would like to. All the pieces are clearly marked for easy assembly. The kit is made of high-quality plastic that feels very similar to the plastics used in high-end Gundam kits. The kit is basically a snap together kit but, if you plan on handling your finished Dygenguar figure you may want to glue some areas.
The completed Dygenguar figure stands approximately 8" tall at the tip of his red shoulder armor. Dygenguar features 24 points of articulation and includes 2 swords as well as three sets of hands, one closed, one open, and one for holding his weapons.
On to the pics!
Dygenguar looks massive when posed with Kotobukiya's Gurren Lagann kit. If I was a betting man I'd say that Gurren Lagann is going to get his butt kicked!
The cool background in the photos was provided by our friends over at Action Figure Displays. You can get this background as well as many others at their site.
In conclusion, Kotobukiya's Dygenguar model is a great build and if you are a fan of the character and you like to build models.... Its a no brainer, you gotta pick this kit up!
