MG Sword Impulse review part 3 (proportion and articulation)

trying to squeeze down the delay this time...

I didn't take much photos from the previous MG Impulse 's' i bought few years ago. My skill for stretching it dynamically for the photo was not good enough in that time. I was thinking to re-shoot this kit when i free and i think this will be the good test out for the kit and lighting system. 

So, from the assemble process already show how well that this kit can pose. The articulations were great and most of the joints work very well. One thing that must be highlight is it won't have any problem when doing dynamic poses such as falling skirt armors. Another great thing is the joint for this kit is very sturdy even after it built for few years (my old one is still standing very well and those joints still hold a lot of different pose). 

As for the proportion, it really give me feeling of robot damashi or STANDart gundam feel. No matter how i pose it, it still look great. But there is still one draw back for the entire kit proportion design which are the legs slightly too long ( it was mentioned from someone else i forget his/her name when MG Force Impulse released). I do agree with that and if the lower torso (abdomen) was slightly extend its length might make it look better. 

Although everything look good from review part 1 till here (boxart, runners, color separation, detailm structure, design, proportion, articulation, blablblablabala.....) but there is one problem with this kit, the weapons. Huge sword or gun is nice but when it come to posing, weight and size (as for this will the length)  does cause problems. For example, if you want to take photo with the entire sword combine in the picture might make the mobile suit itself look too small. The extra HG/NG manipulators use for holding the sword is another issues which it can't really hold it "tightly". 

Well i guess that's all for the words, let the photos explain the rest: 

After review means it going back to the box and wait for it's shower time. This also mean another kit for review coming in soon. Stay tune......
