CP-22: Dual Sniper Unit / CP-23: AZ-5 Missile Unit
I somehow lucked out and got the two CPs right before they disappeared. The secret was getting them the DAY they were released. I usually just have CP-22 applied, because both is overkill. I do want to paint the missiles in CP-23, though…
When this one came out, it was good news for everyone who had missed out on CPs 22 and 23. I originally only got it for its swapping potential, but recently a lack of new kits drove me to revert this one to its stock configuration. If you like colors, this one has them. All of them! I took these pics with the flash on, which really shows how insane the colors are.
Of interest: the “fart cannon” pieces have a slight mold change from the NJR version. The mount’s hardpoints were changed to be the standard blox hardpoint size, to aid in “fuzing” possibilities.
People seem to either love or hate this woof, but it has a special place in my heart, since it was the first zoid I got after a zoidless year of abject brokeness. For silliness, see the Hasbro box: no umlaut, and “fart cannons” facing forward! Semi-silliness: why does a giant mechanical wolf need giant “night vision” goggles? Night jiggling? I guess because of the cardinal rule of anime/mecha: it looks cool!
