HGBF 1/144 GM Sniper K9 - Gundam Build Fighter Renato Brothers Custom Made





















Modified GM Sniper II Custom from "Gundam 0080" used in Gundam Build Fighters. Converted to Gunpla, it has all the accessories from HGUC GM Sniper II plus all other extra featuring a unique Beam Sniper Rifle that can transform into a quadruped with a detachable shuttle and all made up the K-9 dog pack. The detachable shuttle can accommodate miniature toy soldiers which in the anime, these toy soldiers were deployed to set booby traps. GM Sniper K9 had overcome its shortcomings in close range battle with equipping itself with 2 beam guns and dagger mounted on right shoulder. 

Unfortunately, the beam gun holsters on thighs loosen the grip on the legs which causes they to drop easily. In the anime this MS is even equipped with berserk system aka EXAM. The visor lenses are clear green plastic, so if you want to simulate the EXAM system in use you can use the red foil stickers provided. Overall, it's a fun build and appeals well to fans with Gundam grunt units. Ingenious idea of dog pack and weapon sophistication!

fully packed Gundam with striking and super modern design, i love the color scheme, more military themed and even more the tiny soldiers included (extremely detailed, as you can expect from a recent kit developed by Bandai)...

i’m not sure if the anime series is of my liking, but this mecha is pretty much what i would expect from any grunt unit in a real combat !!!.. =D

Indeed cool of the GM sniper in a more military style, a design that overcome the weakest of sniper with those melee and short range gimmicks. There's the fun factor of tiny soldiers. The anime tells a lot about the passion of gunpla-ing as a hobby and imagination which Bandai is promoting. No harm giving the anime a try, after all viewing is free on Youtube. The popularity had granted the anime a season 2.

Bold attempt by Bandai. In fact the whole thing about Gundam Build Fighters is about amazing fans and thinking out of the box though some MS in this anime may appeared ridiculous ^_^
