A cute mini-me of Shieldy, now in Blox form! This was a birthday present from WIKD, much appreciated! As you can see, painting will be required for maximum coolness. There were some stickers meant to go over the fangs, but that doesn’t seem like as good as painting, so I’ll just hold out.
Containing over 400 pieces, this is one hell of a build. Took me a couple evenings to build, several hours to detail (with gundam markers, half the time was spent wiping off mistakes), and another evening to sticker. The stickers are even fussier than NJR ones, but at least they’re thinner. I still need to panel line, but that will have to wait.
OK I’m completely in love with this kit, and I never used to even care about Shieldies. Thanks, Kotobukiya! The first HMM Shieldy was nice enough, but the color scheme on this one brings out a lot more detail, and has nicer contrast. Plus, gigantic cannons—always a plus! I think this one took about 16-18 hours to do, but that was spread out over a couple months, so I wouldn’t get burned out.
