Shall skip the log of gundam develop to the number 7th in FA (Full Armour). The FA-78-3 Full Armor 7th Gundam was first introduced in a manga by Kunio Okawara, as side story after the OYW titled 'Missing Mobile Suit Variations'. Gundam fans were later more familiar to the said Gundam after it was included as a playable mecha in the video game Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C. 0081. The PS3 game is better known as 機動戦士ガンダム戦記 U.C.0081, Kidou Senshi Gundam Senki U.C. 0081 where 7th Gundam had its treated of slight redesigned and packaging. 

Very thoughtful of Bandai to add this MSV to their list of HGUC. We could tell this is an armament packed Gundam from those oversized beam weapons both mounted and handled. Not mentioned the missiles pod that was not part of the gimmick in this Gunpla version. Checking the rear of the Gundam, you would see 6 thrusters for the speed  and lotz of balancers for this heavy MS. Beside the protection that was already provided by the full armoured plates, the thick shield with enforced material made it a mobile fortress. For a HGUC the mold is pretty sharp and detailed. It was a pleasure posing this Gunpla for photo shoot as it was highly poseable with multiple poly-capped joints.

Here's an awesome 8.5" figure of Asuna Yuuki which I had bought in Japan when back then, there were SAO figures available unlike now. Toy manufacturers are now aware of SAO's potential so figure of SAO II were already available or under pre-order list as soon as the anime was released. Well, my heart is still in Aincrad where Asuna's image of Lighting Flash remains vivid. Ok, back to this figure, it was released by SEGA as prize item for UFO catcher. It come in a plastic insert with pretty thin cardboard box. Asuna in her ready stunt with sword pulled out. The figure is practically screwed to the stand base and blade of the sword is to be inserted. The most painful saga to me was to lose the blade, opened my luggage to find it missing : ( So the blade u saw in the pics is a replacement from another toy. Anyway, this figure was reissued again and I got another for a fresh start : )

I like the size of the figure, unfortunately, due to the leaning pose and weight, the figure tends to lean more forward as time passed. The head sculpt resemble well to the character, however another short coming is the poor paint job. A small portion of white paint on her chest plate kind of chipped off. There are also traces of pinkish stains smudges at some boundaries of red and white painted areas. The Asuna Yuuki hand phone cover for iPhone 5 was a nice found from Otaku House and since SAO the few anime my wifee and I watched together. Wifee likes Asuna as much as I do. Some little gifts given between couple from time to time can take marriage to a long way.
