LET’S GET IT.

So let me talk about this for just a bit first.  Digimon is an insta-nostalgia thing for me.  I loved it years and years ago and have always appreciated some of the designs still simply because they’re fucking awesome.  A group of Digimon called the Royal Knights all had designs that would make excellent mecha, especially the X variations of some of them, shown below.

Hey, haven’t been here in a year or so!

Anyhow, just wanted to pop in and make sure this was still working…  In a week or so I should get my MG 00 Quanta as well as my Digimon Reboot Omegamon kit (SO MUCH NOSTALGIA), and I’ll be doing reviews of both of them on my blog.  The pictures might not be as good as my last few reviews since I’m at college and don’t have my lightbox, but you can probably make due, haha.

So my overall opinion of this kit?

Fantastic.

Out of the box, this the best kit I have ever built. I don’t get the chance to build plenty of MG kits, but the last one I had the pleasure of building was the Sinanju, and that was one hell of a kit as well. The proportions are amazing, and just EVERYTHING reeks of sharpness and detail.
