Valvrave I Hito Full Impact Model Kit














Ready to embrace Valvrave at its Full Impact! Having received the support of Bandai, Valvrave Unit 01 not only received its plastic model kit treatment, the kit was later reintroduced when the mecha powered up in season two ... Vu~aruvu rave evolution indeed... Full Impact is a variety of additional equipment is attached to Valvrave I. Such as the ardor grip, Impact Booster, spare exhaust heat cartridge joints, extra exhaust heat cartridge, sickles, Strike brace, braided-Baikens, G-edge samurai swords (long) and G-edge (short). 

Some how I enjoyed playing the kit more without those full impact accessories attached. Furthermore the unit pose a lot better without those dreadful add-ons. Bandai had also overlook adding addition stickers for the full impact parts. When attaching those extra parts requires extra care, not as to rupture the stickers pasted on the unit. This model kit has its merit with the striking artwork, complimentary stand base and an impressive weapon holder which enable all the weapons.

the kit with the extra parts looks kinda cram-full, obviously imposing, but they don’t seem to follow the same style of the mecha design itself and that’s why you feel these were "added in the last minute" and not as an evolution... i mean, both look great individually, but not as good assembled... i should take a look at the Valvrane Series, it looks interesting !!!... =D

There was a lot of work to be done to to extra parts. Apologies I didn't do much as I only did a straight build. In fact I like the basic unit without the extra parts more. The album is by Sunrise so the plot is kind Gundam - rish ... With a tragic ending : (

The torso seems a bit too short, don't you think?

HEHE... don’t worry pal, in fact i wasn’t considering the straight build in my comment, rather the design itself of the extra parts, which as you mentioned, were added for the second season of the TV series... they don’t match the rest of the Valvrane unit... it’s like these extra parts were taken from a different series (they remind me the design of the Armas from Linebarrels of Iron)... =)

The long legs kind to make the torso appeared shorter I guess especially with attachment to the legs elongated the overall appearance even more.

No hurry bro! Sometime after a long while, Sunrise might upload it on YouTube like Gundam Build Fighters.
