Review: HG 1/144 - Strike Freedom Gundam



Model Number: ZGMF - X20A
Pilot: Kira Yamato
Manufacturer: Terminal
Operator: Orb Union
                Three Ships Alliance
Appearance: Gundam Seed Destiny
Armaments: Beam Saber x2
                  Beam Rifle x2
                  Beam Cannon x2
                  Beam Shield
                  Dragoon System



Body Parts
Panel lined all the body parts. Especially the legs.
The stickers are located on the eyes, shoulders
and chest. You are given four hands, two close fists and two open palms.








Wings of Strike Freedom

A little bit of panel lining, added some gold marking details, and painted the thrusters with red and black markers.








Dragoon System effects


This is my favorite part of the kit and the pride of the HG Strike Freedom. Not even the MG and PG has this kind of effects. It really makes the HG worth buying.






                                                                    

Beam Sabers and Beam Shield


The sabers should have been red. Its a good thing I have some spare red beam sabers. The shield is perfect and very detailed the way it should be.








Beam Rifles and Beam Cannons


Some panel lining on the beam cannons with red mark details. As for the beam rifles, I painted it with white, black, blue and red markers.










This is the combination of the two beam rifles. You just connect the beam rifle to the other one and change the short barrel into the long barrel.

Review:
I had a lot of fun building this kit. I did a lot of panel lining and I painted the beam rifles. The articulation isn't that great. But thats alright since the Strike Freedom really focuses on long range attacks. The weapons are complete and well detailed, especially the beam shield. Expect to do a lot of panel lining, especially on the legs. This model is very dull if done in snap built.

What makes the HG Strike Freedom special from its higher grade versions are the dragoon system effects. Only the HG has this which makes this kit worth buying. But if you have the money to spend its still better to buy the MG or PG, especially the Full Burst Mode version. Thats all for the Strike Freedom HG 1/144. I hope you like my pictures and review.

  1. So you will have to paint the beam rifles/launcher itself and the blade of the beam sabers aren't red? Good thing I bought MG 1/100 Strike Freedom instead.

    1. Yes, the beam sabers are color blue and the beam rifles / cannons need to be painted. It's definitely better to get the MG. But the HG was still a good experience.
