SC Braver Original Mecha Lion Dancer

 

















I happened to chance upon this figure hence started my first step into the world of design toys.  SC Braver Original Mecha Lion Dancer is by Foon.W Creation based in Hong Kong. The design takes inspiration of Chinese lion dancer and turned it into mecha form. Something fresh with a unique take. 

Like most design toys, the package ain't the emphasis therefore it's just plastic stapled onto cardboard. The print on the cardboard is quite well designed though in anime style. My only disappointment is the QC of the figure. The portion that's supposed to white turned pink over time which I believed the white paint  sprayed over the red base paint got stained. I posted the problem on Instagram IG and it seems that I am not the only one facing the same issue.

Nonetheless, I decided to restore the whiteness with my limited Gunpla experience and thankfully it turns out fine. Basically, the figure comes with two pairs of hands, one weapon gripping grey pair of hands and another pair of orange burning fists. The weapon is a Chinese sabre with Yin Yang hand guard.

That’s a very cool mecha and even cooler being also a designer toy!... I love the intricate design and color scheme, albeit you mentioned it was based on a Chinese lion, well, I thought it was a Chinese duck, LOL!... Your work on the white parts brought it to life again!...

Maybe the lips looks a bit like duck. Understandable for westerners unfamiliar with lion dance. Thank you for the compliment my friend on the restoration...
