I got a new Gundam (Iron Blooded Orphans Option Set 2)

image

I got a new Gundam, Iron Blooded Orphans Option Set 2, to be exact.

This is the second accessory set to be released for Bandai’s High Grade 1/144 scale Iron Blooded Orphans Gunpla line.

I was lucky enough to get mine, as usual from the lads at…

I really like this Options Set, and I’m considering picking up a second of this one + Option Set 1.

Where as Option Set 1 catered more towards the High Grade (HG) Barbatos and Graze, this set caters more for the HG Graze Custom and Hyakuri. Although all the High Grades in the Iron Blooded Orphans line can make use of the Option Sets.

I sped thru the build process on this set, but you get a couple of sprues in the same colour which gives you..

… 2 new shoulder pads for the Graze Custom, a bazooka (that connects to the new shoulders), a booster pack (for space flight), a rocket laucher, a grenade launcher and a new Mobile Worker.

When attached, the Graze Custom looks even more kick ass…

The Hyakuri gets armed to the teeth with the Grenade Launcher + Rocket Launcher.

Whats more, there comes 2 connection pieces comes to attach the weapons to the Hyakuri. By removing 2 tabs on the Hyakuri’s backpack, the weapons can be stored away.

I love these Option Sets, not only do they offer more playability and customizing to the IBO Gundams but I love ‘collecting’ the little Mobile Workers.

If I had anything negative to say, it would only be how the Option Sets need a lick of paint but for the price they cost it’s a very small negative.

I got a new Gundam (Iron Blooded Orphans Graze Custom to be exact)

image

I got a new Gundam… High Grade 1/144 scale Iron Blooded Orphans Graze Custom.

I was lucky enough to get mine at Dublin City Comics and Collectables.

image

I’ve really been looking forward to this kit. So much so, that I didnt take my usual unboxing pic’s and sped thru the build just so I could play with it.

image

Build wise the Graze Custom is almost identical to the Graze Commander type (the all green Graze) and comes with the same weapon accessories of gun and axe.

image

Where this kit differs is the new head, chest, back pack and shoulder parts (the white parts).

In the series (Iron Blooded Orphans) the Graze Custom, is a repaired and some what rebuilt Graze that the Gundam Barbatos destroyed in the opening episodes of the series.

The kit has all the poseability of the standard Graze, and like the previous kit (the green Graze) has its own internal skeleton and mono eye…

I have to say again how much i like this kit. Its visual look is off being field repaired and makes it really stand out from its sister suit.

The Graze Custom’s look can be further enhanced and weapons load out upgraded thru the use of the High Grade Iron Blooded Orphans Option Sets 1 & 2.

I’ll be showing off the Option set 2 soon enough, I thought it was only fair to just show the Graze Custom first.

As a side note my local Gundam Club is having a ‘Build Fighters’ battle tomorrow night and I’m bringing a kitted out Graze Custom to the party.
