SD Gundam BB Senshi Jiang Wei Kyoui Gundam F91 (姜維ガンダムF91)

A warrior surrounded in mysteries. Inspired by Jiang Wei from the Chinese literary classic "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". Better known as 'Kyoui Gundam' in the World of Brave Battle Warriors, he was once a follower of Sousou (Cao Cao) Troops but later switch side to Ryobi (Liu Bei) after been convinced by Zhuge Liang, known his potential as a strategist as well as a warrior. Kyoui Gundam is a nicely detailed snap-fit plastic kit! Part of Bandai's "BB Senshi Sangokuden" ("BB Warrior Romance Of The Three Kingdoms") line, this simple kit is molded in color and features polycap joints, detachable armor parts, and heel stamps with his name etched into both heels. Panel line the kit and the Chinese character 姜 on the forehead will be obvious. 

Comes with variety of weapons such as the Shield of Flames [Homura no tate] and the Spear of Sharp Edge [Eisennsou]. The spear can be equipped with the shoulder clear parts to become the Wing of Flames [Enyoku]. BB Jiangwei took a double agent role and so is the kit which can switch between fiery red dragon Gundam F91 and Zaku II (red). In Gundam form, he holds a trident and a more low-profile sword when infiltrating SouSou camp in Zaku II form. The face change is very much removing the V-fin and replacing it with a Zaku II mask.

nicely detailed Sangokuden !!!... not quite the color scheme i would expect from a F91, i mean, is a bit too reddish compared with its blueish not-deformed counterpart... yet, is a great extrapolation with a good deal of detail, full of dragons for the right medieval chinese armor suit... even they added frosted/glittering translucent parts !!!... =D

Yeah! I find the Zaku mask kind of awesome too! It would be loved by both Gundam & Zaku fans ^_^

Perhaps Sunrise wanted an extreme colour contrast too the Harrison version. Sangokuden kits are slowly getting harder to get as they used to be so cheap.

Good observation skills pal on the translucent glittering parts. It's true that those dragon looking theme gave Sangokuden kits a strong ancient China taste though in actual fact, only emperor gets to wear anything Dragon in the past. Generals wore tiger deco. Ths like sangokuden, dun need to do much effort hee
