A Zoid and Stuff

In: Customized Zoids > Plastic Swaps

Iron Kong (Karl’s type)

TakaraTomy commemorated the 10th anniversary of the anime by releasing more anime-accurate versions of certain kits. One of them was the Iron Kong of a certain Germanic colonel who likes gatling guns. The upside: a clear green gearbox, and inclusion of the super ultra mega rare CP-A1 (a sprue of connector parts that lets you affix CPs to Zoids they were not meant for). The downside: too flippin’ expensive, and I don’t like how high the gatling mount sits (neither of which will stop me from trying to get one).

Since I’ve had a PK for a while, I thought I’d try to make my own, via the magic of plastic swapping. I also had a spare hacked CP-03 I didn’t feel guilty about hacking up, since it was already in bad shape, so I thought I’d take a stab at a slightly better gun mount (though still pretty half-assed.)

Update from the future: Well, I got one. How did I do?

    When I built Gordos and came across that part this had ran through my mind too. I think this mount option looks better than the CP-A1 part, though it’s a one-way trip for the CP-03. But seriously, once it’s on the Kong, why would you want to take it off? At least, I probably wouldn’t take it off, except for dusting the Zoid off every now and then. I like the mix. It seems right for the look.

    I still want the real kit (fat chance, moneywise), but I do like the way this mount looks better.

    @Sergio: True, but then there’s the $40 for shipping. THAT’s too much. Or at least it was until Christmas when I finally gave in and got it :)

    Yeah, it does suck when the shipping is more expensive than the actual Zoid. =p
