I got a new Gundam… Well a new Option Set (Option Set 3) for my Iron Blooded Orphans Gundams, to be exact.
As usual I got this kit from the awesome guys at Dublin City Comics and Collectables.
Once opened up you’ll find 2 small sprues and a small sticker sheet.
Just like the previous 2 ‘Option Sets’, this option set is geared towards particular Gundams from the IBO line, namely the Gusion, the Gusion Rebake, and the Man Rodi. Don’t let that put you off tho, this set offers up new melee weapons that can be used with any of the IBO Gundams, and has a new ‘Mobile Worker’ (a Gjallahorn one) to add to your collection… Gotta Catch them all.
An amazing bit of plastic engineering in this kit is the chain option that’s included in the kit. Although attached to the sprue, once cut away, the chain has a full range of motion, due to all the individual links that comprise the chain. It’s mind boggling, and total amazballs that they were able to do this.
Once all assembled we have a collection of axes to play with, from a meat cleaver type, to a short axe (this can be made longer by exchanging the shaft with another part), to a halberd type that has a ball and chain on the end.
The new ‘Mobile Worker’ you get as part of the kit is pretty cool. Unfortunately my pic doesn’t pick it up.
All in all ‘Option Kit 3’ is a nice edition to your IBO collection, personally the extendable axe is my favourite weapon in the kit.
Until next time, I’ll see you at the table.
