For my first review in a while, I decided to go with a kit I’ve been wanting for almost 2 years now, the MG Infinite Justice!
For starters, I broke one of my chief rules and made two minor changes: I changed the V-Fin to silver and the yellow parts on the backpack to black. I HIGHLY recommend doing one, the other, or both.
As usual, I’m going to get the gripes out of the way first. Similarly to the Justice RG, the backpack makes the kit back heavy (of course). Fortunately, they balanced this enough that it can stand on its own; just don’t plan on posing it much.
My only other problem was that the hand peg really doesn’t work with the rifle. You really have to fiddle with it to make the wrist not sag in poses like this.
Other than that, this is just stellar. All gray inner frame parts come cast in the silver/gray rather than just boring gray, and the decals provided just look amazing.
The armor separation in the legs and arms also allows for some fantastic articulation. You can see the way the knee pops out, which allows for one of my favorite gimmicks in any suit ever.
I mean, it doesn’t get much cooler than that, and it’s implemented so well!
As much as I hated the Justice backpack, when you put this up on a display stand it really does shine. There are a lot of different things to do with it given the variety of pretty strange weapons provided.
Since I’m ragging on the backpack so much (like I always do), I wanted to point out that this kit is absolutely incredible without it.
I never thought a pink Gundam could look tough. And since I didn’t do any shots from the back, here are two:
One thing I wish they did was include more of these decals though.
In closing, this kit looks stellar with or without a backpack, with or without a top coat, with or without decals. You can really make it your own, and the only reason I’m not going full 10/10 is because straight out of the box, that stupid yellow really kills the kit’s buzz. Otherwise this is easily one of the best MG kits I’ve built.
