2012-09-01: Kotobukiya, why are you doing this to me?

So I know I said NEVER AGAIN, but just look at this thing. Look at it! If you didn’t look, “this thing” is the HMM Berserk Führer in all its glory. It even looks pretty good without the ton of touchup painting these things usually need. I just want to paint it pink and teal.

Wanted: English language reviews clarifying whether it will totally explode ALL of its armor and limbs or just MOST of its armor and limbs.

    Heh, guess it roped you back into HMMs as well. If you’re gonna grab one, I suggest you do it fairly quickly. The price has already went up on most of the eBay auctions.

    @Zoidstar: Ugh, I know! So, how explodey is it? I’m going to hem and haw for another week before I decide…

    Not sure, but I’ll tell you when it arrives. Some people have already gotten theirs on ZP, and the armor is a strong lavender color and the caps are a bright pinkish red. >_<

    @Zoidstar: The color probably wouldn’t stop me as much as the fragility, and that might not even stop me. I AM ABOUT TO MAKE A HUGE MISTAKE!

    Just tracked mine, and I should be getting it between today and tomorrow, so if you felt like waiting a couple days, I could get back with you on that! ;)

    I couldn’t wait; it left Japan a couple days ago. :(

    I guess warn me if anything’s too fussy. I’ll bust out the glue and the pink/teal paint.

    Yes, that needs to be done! Just watch the leg assembly around the ball joints attaching them to the body. People have been forgetting to assemble the circular piece that tightens the connection. As tight as the pieces fit together, you don’t want to try prying anything apart if you can help it. I’ve only begun painting some parts, but have talked to some people on YouTube.

    Noted! I haven’t gotten to the legs yet (so little free time), but I did have some tense moments assembling the body. There are some pretty tight parts there.

    You’re farther along than me! I’ve still got to finish painting the caps and do panel lines before I can start. XD

    I recommend taking some Future floor finish to any armor surfaces that are not gripping well. That and maybe a warm water wash before to get any mold release agent that may be staying on the parts.

    Oh, so I finished this about a week ago. Expect a review and pics in about… six months. Overall it’s pretty solid. That armor’s not going anywhere. It seems like the legs can’t hold all the weight in certain poses, and the egg-beater arms are hard to stow away nicely, but if those are my only complaints on an HMM then it’s nearly perfect!
