The G-Saviour is a great kit. It was easy to make and looks great
finished. The instructions were easy to follow and even those
that didn't like the movie will enjoy the finished product.
The head is made of 4 pieces and a polycap. It's one of my favorite
parts on the model due to its navy blue"V" antenna.
The only problem is the elongated back. Its prevents the model
from looking up, but still looks great.
The torso uses the only red part for the cockpit. The fins on
the back look
great and don't really do anything but add weight on the model.
It has a little slot for its beam saber and uses yellow stickers
for the vents. I decided not to put them on mine because I prefer
to paint it.
The arms are beautiful. A lot of people don't like the lack of
armor, but I
think it looks great. It adds a sense of light weight and speed
to the suit, and compliments its space mode. The shoulders are
an unusual design but add to the uniqueness of the model.
legs are also missing armor in the top region, but the skirt armor
in the front and sides make it look great. The feet are also well
designed and made up of a lot of moving pieces.
are only two weapons and one shield. The beam saber and shield
are made up of a light blue soft plastic. The gun looks standard
to any mobile suit of its time, and its shield doesn't seem like
it could protect anything but the arm its on.
Overall this is a great kit as well as my favorite. If people
can get past
the movie, Bandai might have made the terra mode, but the space
mode was the only kit made for the HG G-Saviour line. Apart from
the weapons anyone could enjoy this kit.
